Cinnamon Sugar Pop Tarts

By Wednesday, January 27, 2016

One day I woke up and said "I'm going to make homemade pop tarts today"! Seriously. It was that random! I loooved pop tarts as a kid. Heck, I still do! My favourite were the strawberry ones with white icing. My mother rationed them though (one at ...

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

By Tuesday, December 29, 2015

These SERIOUSLY melt in your mouth. Last Easter, my step-mother-in-law (whose name is Daphne - I never know exactly what to call her... but step-mother-in-law is better than My Other Half's father's girlfriend, right?) got up early and announced she was making Apple Cinnamon Muffins. I'm not ...

Gingerbread Muffins

By Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Well... I'm obsessed. Honestly, I'm not a huge gingerbread person. I couldn't care less about gingerbread cookies or houses (although building them is fun!) and normally would pass them up. But a moist, chewy muffin that melts in your mouth? I'm all over it. I guess I'm ...

Whole Wheat Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes

By Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Lately I've been going ALL OUT with breakfast! My Other Half is definitely the breakfast maker in our little family, which he inherited from his dad, but I'm the pancake maker (he normally does bacon and eggs and things). Since we stopped buying pancake mix a ...

Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

By Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Zucchini season!!! Have I missed it? I think it's still in full swing. I keep seeing zucchini recipes everywhere, so hopefully I'm not late to the party. I always remember that zucchini season comes right before squash and pumpkin season... and we're dangerously close to that, ...

Brown Butter Banana Bread

By Friday, September 11, 2015

I am so excited to review my fav girl Jessica's cookbook today, Seriously Delish! So yes, the cookbook came out a year ago. And yes, I am just getting around to reviewing it now. BUT it's the one-year anniversary of its release... so this post is still ...

Grapefruit Spinach Smoothie

By Wednesday, September 9, 2015

I'm all about smoothies this week! Last weekend I realized I was just not eating enough fruits and veggies. After a trip to Pure Kitchen for lunch (which I adored - had the layer dip, mystical bowl and champion juice) I vowed to have a smoothie ...

Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

By Thursday, August 27, 2015

My morning routine changes constantly. Well, constantly is probably an exaggeration... but it changes every couple months for sure. I get into a habit, and then something comes and interrupts that habit, and then I'm back at square one. I keep trying to get things done in ...

My Go-To Classic Cinnamon Buns

By Friday, August 14, 2015

I've legitimately been making this these cinnamon buns since I was 14 years old. Which is why I absolutely cannot believe they're not already on the blog. But they aren't! This is the very first time I've ever blogged about them. Soo why was I making cinnamon ...

“Wife Saver” Breakfast Casserole

By Wednesday, April 29, 2015

Today I’m going to tell you all about how we started having book club BRUNCH!   So my book club, The Unputdownable Book Club, (almost) always meets on the first Sunday of every month at 6pm. Normally this works fine, but when you’re juggling schedules of all ...

Cinnamon & Sugar Pull Apart Bread

By Friday, April 24, 2015

I’m alive!!!   I kind of get annoyed when people complain they’re “so busy” or “crazy busy” or “insanely busy”. Mostly because half of them have no idea what busy really means, but also because it’s this scape-goat answer to the question “how are you?”. You’re not ...

Bourbon Banana French Toast

By Friday, April 17, 2015

This is a newlywed breakfast. What I mean by that is… I made it the first week we were home after getting married. We were still in this completely head-over-heels with happiness bubble. I am not the breakfast maker in our household (My Other Half and ...

Doughnut Muffins (Duffins!)

By Wednesday, April 15, 2015

So let me tell you about how I develop my recipes, and choose which ones to blog about. At this point, I’d say 25% (maybe as much as a third) of the recipes I blog about are my own creations – things I came up with ...

The Best Homemade Pancakes

By Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Pancake Tuesday! Well, not really, but it's a Tuesday and I made you some pancakes. You know how I stopped buying ready-made pizza crust? And store-bought naan bread? Well I stopped buying pancake batter too. They're so easy and quick to make, why bother? We don't eat pancakes ...

Glazed Almond-Raspberry Scones

By Tuesday, September 23, 2014

OMG these scones! If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you’ll know I love scones so much! I’ve made all types, including: Regular (great for strawberry shortcake!) Pumpkin Spiced Blueberry & White Chocolate Cinnamon & Sugar And now these! They practically had my Mama’s name written on them. She LOVES raspberries ...

Classic Banana Bread

By Friday, August 29, 2014

I’ve been making this recipe since I was 14. Seriously! Banana bread was one of the first things I learned to bake at my first job. In retrospect, it’s great for beginner bakers because it’s so darn easy. Pretty hard to mess up, right? Well that’s what ...

Homemade Hollandaise Sauce (Eggs Benedict)

By Friday, July 18, 2014

I made hollandaise sauce – from scratch!!! Are you an eggs benedict fan? I only recently (like, in the last two years) became one. That’s nuts, right? The thing is, I never thought I liked hollandaise sauce. I had it over veggies like broccoli and cauliflower as ...

Coconut Vanilla Maple Granola

By Friday, May 23, 2014

I made homemade granola!!! One of my favourite breakfasts is berry yogurt, granola and some fresh strawberries or blueberries. It’s so refreshing but filling enough to get me properly started on my day. Especially since we’re getting into berry season, I thought it would be a good ...

Cinnamon & Sugar Scones

By Friday, April 18, 2014

It's Good Friday, and the perfect time to stay home and do some baking for Easter morning. I hope you are spending the holiday weekend surrounded by loved ones! Perhaps it’s my British heritage that makes me so unbelievably obsessed with scones… I remember my first job at ...

Stuffed Breakfast Pastry Shells

By Friday, April 11, 2014

Before you laugh, you need to know - my dad named this recipe "Breakfast Surprise"!   Also, yes - I made you breakfast!   My Other Half is the true breakfast master. Well actually, his dad is, but he learned from the best. On the weekends, when we actually ...
