Back in university I used to eat the same thing for breakfast EVERY day: a bowl of cereal. Sure, the cereal choice would change a bit, or I would add some fruit to it, but there wasn’t a lot of variety. While I still love a good bowl of cereal, I find that my breakfast,…
Halibut with Mango Salsa & Coconut Rice
As a new mom of two boys, I now ‘get it’. I finally understand what my friends were saying when they told me that having one kid is like having a pet, but two is like having a zoo. I could write a whole post about this new experience of being pulled in opposite directions…
We had the best time at the cabin picking Saskatoon berries this summer. It’s one of the things that I most look forward to up there, there’s something so therapeutic and simple about gathering your own food. Now that Charlie is bigger he joined me and my Dad in the adventure and loved it. I’m…
Plum, Thyme & Gouda Pizza
Pizza is our ABSOLUTE favourite food for entertaining guests – you simply can’t be uptight with pizza on the menu! We usually prepare a number of different toppings and everyone takes their turn creating their own unique pizza for the group to share (and vote for of course, we’re a competitive bunch)!
Feeding kids (and some adults) at breakfast can test the patience of any mom, and I’m no exception. We eat a lot of fruit parfaits around our house, but even those can get old for the little ones. Now popsicles on the other hand: those NEVER get tired.
Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Crepes
Summer makes me happy. Anybody who knows me can attest to the fact that I’m ALWAYS cold, and the warm Okanagan summer days are what I live for! And the fruit… it seems like there is a never-ending train of new in-season fresh fruit every week in the summer, and I simply can’t get enough.
Greek Yogurt Peach Upside Down Cake
This upside down cake is a bit of a show off. It is ridiculously moist with a delicious lemony flavour and a pretty display of peaches. You may be tempted to skip the step with the egg whites: don’t. It truly makes the cake light and airy.
Fresh Strawberries & Cream Cake
I love birthdays. Ok, maybe not my own, but I love other people’s birthdays. And it’s my job to make the cake – I don’t know if anyone ever asks me, it’s just a given. We don’t eat cake very often, but when we do let me tell you, it doesn’t come out of a…
Fresh Jam (in 30 minutes)
Jams are typically packed with sugar and lack that fresh fruit taste. I LOVE freezer jam because you can whip it up in minutes, it has half the sugar of regular jam, and it tastes amazing! Wow the pants off of your next brunch crowd with a batch of fresh jam.
