Super Moist and Delicious Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

Gluten-Free-Chocolate-Cake

I will be honest with you, when I first heard that this gluten free chocolate cake was super moist and delicious, I wasn’t sure what to think because it contained QUINOA. I’m honestly not a huge fan of quinoa, but you cannot taste it in this cake, not even a little bit! You know when you find a recipe that you love so much that it becomes your “go to” recipe? I have another chocolate cake recipe that was my “go to” recipe, but I have since then discovered this one and I’m in love! This gluten free chocolate cake … Continue reading

Overnight Oats and Blueberries in a Jar

Overnight Oats

Mornings are always a huge rush around our house AND everyone seems to want something different for breakfast. Because of this, I’ve learned how to pre-make breakfast, enough to cover us for a few days at a time. Along with smoothies, one breakfast meal that I prepare is “Mommy’s special eggs” (perhaps I’ll share that recipe another time) and lately my daughter and I have been enjoying Overnight Oats and Blueberries in a Jar with NO ADDED SUGAR! My favourite ingredient (aside from the blueberries, of course) in these overnight oats are the chia seeds. My favourite chia seeds to … Continue reading

Taquito Pie … Mmmm…

Taquito Pie

When I learned that hubby and my son had made Taquito Pie while my daughter and I were at a vendor show sharing about Norwex and greener cleaning, I was very eager to have it for dinner! Just over a year ago, my hubby came up with this recipe for Beef Taquitos. They were immediately a hit in our family and they make a great freezable meal too! As delicious as they are – preparing them can be a wee bit time consuming with all of the rolling of tech taquito, so his latest version, instead of calling Taquito Pie, … Continue reading

Zucchini Muffins

Zucchini-Muffins

My kids LOVE muffins and I’m even more excited to share that they both love Zucchini Muffins! Who knew that ZUCCHINI MUFFINS of all things could be accepted as part of a delicious dessert? That’s right! My kids happily will accept Zucchini Muffins as a yummy treat after dinner. Recently, I was at a client’s house and I admired her MASSIVE zucchini that had been picked fresh from the garden. It was HUGE, as wide around as my arm, absolutely HUGE! I was inspired to get myself some zucchini (sadly, much smaller in size) and do some baking. One favourite … Continue reading

Protein Packed Pancakes

Protein-Packed-Pancakes

Breakfast is often referred to as the most important meal of the day! This is why I try to ensure that my children get their serving of protein every single morning. One of their favourite breakfast foods is pancakes, but traditional pancakes tend not to have much protein. SO, I decided to come up with a recipe for Protein Packed Pancakes that fills them with protein, but are still very similar to the regular pancakes that they know and love. This recipe is quite easy as it is all mixed using a blender. The clean up is quick and easy … Continue reading

Grandma’s Butter Tarts {RECIPE}

Grandmas Butter Tarts

Butter Tarts are definitely one of my weaknesses! I absolutely love how they melt in your mouth. My favourite kind are with just a few raisins. This recipe is from my Grandmother. When I was in University, my parents left me alone for the entire summer as they went up to the cottage. I was so excited to have the house to myself, but specifically, I was excited to bake in the kitchen. My Mom didn’t love it when I asked to bake in her kitchen (I think it was because of the mess that I often created as I … Continue reading
