EASY Peach Crisp

Easy Peach Crisp

Earlier this week, I published my Simple Apple Crisp Recipe for you to try out. Peach crisp is another wonderfully easy dessert to make. All it takes is a bit of labour to peel the peaches and it can be thrown together in a matter of minutes after that. There is no trick to baking it, other than burning it (just keep your eye on your oven after 20 minutes have passed), there really is NOTHING that you can do wrong with this dish. So if you aren’t a baker and would like to try a dessert, this would be … Continue reading

To Dip Them or NOT #PringlesDIPbate {Giveaway}

Pringles Tortillas Giveaway

I’ve always been a huge fan of Pringles chips! They make a wonderful guilty pleasure snack. I love the way they come stacked in a can. I love the way they taste AND I love the way they are sturdier than other chips which makes them great for dipping. However, Pringles has now come out with Tortilla Chips and the big debate is: Do you need to dip them? Traditionally tortilla chips are for dipping, but I have to say that I have not needed to dip these chips as they are full of delicious flavour all on their own. … Continue reading

The Importance of Quality Time with your Children

Weekend at Grandparents

What are your parenting goals? If you were to think about your main goals that you have as a parent, what would they be? I think many of us have similar goals when it comes to parenting. Spending quality time with your children will help you achieve the following goals: To Raise healthy and happy children. To Ensure your children feel loved. To Teach your children the importance of respect and kindness. To find ways to truly connect with your children as they grow. To maintain communication with your children on a daily basis. Last week, I wrote about Quality … Continue reading

Simple Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

For me, Apple Crisp is such a simple, yet incredible dessert in the Fall. Wouldn’t you agree? The experience of picking the apples off of the tree, peeling and slicing the apples and mixing the crisp topping is so wholesome. There is nothing like the smell of freshly picked apples in the fall. Perhaps it is the memory of apple picking at my Grandparents’ apple orchard or the LOVE for fall with the crisp breeze and the sunny days. Perhaps Apple Crisp is a dessert that I remember fondly from my childhood. I honestly don’t know what it is, but … Continue reading

Are you a busy parent who only wants the best for your children? Do you struggle to find enough time in the day to get what NEEDS to get done, let alone spending quality time with your children? If you answered YES to either or both of these questions, this challenge is for you! Sometimes, making goals, specific reachable goals, and making a plan to achieve those goals makes it much easier to succeed. Sometimes, instead of making what I call a “blanket goal” (e.g. from now on, I will spend more quality time with my children), you might be … Continue reading
