It’s that time of year when we trade in the pumpkin for gingerbread, and I personally couldn’t be happier! I mean, I love pumpkin, but I’ve seriously tested the limits of how many pumpkin dishes a person can consume this season. These Gingerbread Energy Bites are festive and totally satisfying.
This Beet, Carrot & Apple Cake is full of hidden veggies and sweet fall flavours. The combination of apples and root vegetables makes it perfectly moist, and the spiced glaze and crunchy nut topping simply make it irresistible!
Packed with fibre and a perfect hint of pumpkin pie flavour, this Pumpkin Pecan Granola is a delicious and wholesome fall breakfast! Enjoy it with yogurt and fresh fruit or totally solo. Warning: It is totally addicting!
This Southwest Chili makes for a cozy dinner, game day meal, or enjoyed as a hearty lunch. It’s easy to make ahead of time, freezes well, and is a family favourite in our house! We love topping it with sour cream, cheddar cheese, fresh avocado and serving it with tortilla chips.
Alright, I MAY have gone a bit overboard when I purchased all of those cans of pumpkin puree but I have zero regrets. Today needed a bit of brightening, and since ice cream is my favourite treat, there was no question about what was on the menu. Allow me to introduce you to Pumpkin Pie…
I get asked regularly about the antiques in my home, so I thought spill the beans on my secret antique spots and give you a round up of what I consider the best antique stores in BC so that you can bring a bit of history into your homes too!
Pumpkin is incredible. Seriously. Not only is it a nutrition powerhouse (full of fibre and beta carotene), it is ridiculously versatile. Is there anything this vegetable can’t do? Soups, donuts, pie, risotto, muffins, waffles, ice cream… and now scones.
Plums: has there ever been a more under-rated fruit? I think not. This Plum Coffee Cake is the answer to the burning question at this time of year… “what on earth do I do with all these plums!?”. The sweet plums are complimented with a thin moist lemony cake with a crunchy nutty streusel…
My plum tree is bursting with plums: time to get baking! These Plum Oat Bran Muffins are moist and not too sweet, perfect for a morning run-out-the-door breakfast or an afternoon snack (lunchbox friendly too!).
