Let’s Get Ready to CRUMBLE!

Let’s Get Ready to CRUMBLE!

I’m the first one to admit I don’t like baking. It’s too uptight for me. I’ll do it because I love my family and I like to know what actually goes into their food…but inside…I’m screaming! TOO MANY RULES! Honestly, I don’t even like writing […]

An Apple a Day

An Apple a Day

I adore apples. They smell like love, not smarmy, hot-hot-hot love, but enveloping, wonderful hugs love. When I first left home and went to University in Victoria, I had a Great Aunt & Uncle living nearby. Aunt Sonya & Uncle Joe were Great AND they […]

Blissful Banana Pumpkin Bread

With three monkey’s under ten running around my kitchen, I rarely have bananas turn all soft, squishy & lovely for baking. While I was shopping the other day though, the smart produce manager at Fairway Market, had bundled a bunch-o-brown-bananas for a dealio! Of course I grabbed […]

No Sweat Apple Galette

No Sweat Apple Galette

I’m a sucker for a fancy food name and galette sounds so much more elaborate than messy upside down pie. Full disclosure: this girl can’t bake. Ahhhh, I mean, I can bake, if I need to but I don’t lo-ove it. The precision required is not part of my personality […]

Kristen’s Zesty Zucchini Cake

Kristen’s Zesty Zucchini Cake

It took NO time at all for Kristen to decide, when I asked for a recipe after her interview ‘Let’s get back to Play!’. This must be a family favourite around her house! After making it yesterday, it will be here too! This cake is […]
