eggless double chocolate muffins

double chocolate muffins (egg-free)

Much healthier than those giant double chocolate muffins found in the grocery store bakery! Eggless, high fibre, & great for school lunches! One of the most controversial things I’ve posted on Facebook was about school policies for food allergies. It had recently been in the news that a school division in Montreal decided to lift a ban on peanuts and other anaphylactic food allergens. I applauded the decision, which was based on research that shows schools with peanut bans actually don’t have lowered rates of accidental exposure than schools who allow peanuts.  Instead, I suggested schools should switch their focus … Read More

saskatoon jam -low sugar recipe

low sugar saskatoon jam

I made this saskatoon jam as low in added sugar as possible while keeping it food safe! The result is a jam bursting with berry flavour! The other day at breakfast I sighed a contented sigh.  We had toast, jam, fresh fruit, and coffee.  I suddenly realized that this isn’t a breakfast I would normally get excited about. In fact, I’m not really much of a toast and jam kind of girl. But the toast was made with homemade sourdough bread. The fresh fruit was blueberries and cherries, which I only ever buy in season. The coffee was a freshly … Read More

rhubarb banana bread – super moist

rhubarb banana bread super moist

An incredibly moist banana bread whose sweetness is balanced by the tart addition of rhubarb. I’ve discovered the best way to do recipe testing. Get you guys to do the work for me! Just kidding. But you lovely readers really helped me out with this recipe! I posted a pic of my first attempt at rhubarb banana bread on Instagram and had so many people ask me for the recipe. I knew the recipe needed work so I quickly made another loaf, which I thought was perfect. But I’m just one opinion. Then I sent the recipe to anyone who … Read More

omega 3 sourdough bread

omega 3 sourdough bread

A hearty, fluffy bread with good-for-you fats and healthy bacteria. Do you ever ruin yourself for store bought foods after making a homemade version? I just can’t bring myself to buy commercial loaves of bread anymore after getting into the habit of making sourdough. When life gets busy and I’m at the grocery store I sometimes think I should just go easy on myself and buy a loaf of bread.  But I can’t do it so instead we just eat more crackers, veggies, and hummus! This is one reason why I haven’t ventured into cracker making; I need to have something … Read More

sunflower seed granola and rhubarb breakfast parfait

rhubarb parfait with sunflower seed granola

 Tangy rhubarb meets crunchy sweet sunflower seed granola in this epic breakfast yogurt parfait!  Ask and you shall receive. Even if it’s an accident! A while back I was thinking about rhubarb (as most people do, I’m sure) and realized I didn’t really know much about acquiring it. Could I buy it from the grocery store, or did I have to grow it myself? I asked Facebook the question, and even though I was just genuinely curious about whether I could theoretically purchase rhubarb… I was bombarded by offers of free rhubarb. I honestly wasn’t asking for donations! But, even if you ask accidentally, … Read More

Greet your morning with the bright flavour or oranges and nearly 20g of protein! Tasty on their own or with a smear of berry jam. Important questions to ask someone you’re dating to figure out if they’re “the one”: do you want kids in the future or not? are you a home body or do you like to travel? are you a spender or a saver? do you prefer waffles or pancakes? Marriage advice from a food blogger: if you’re going to be spending a lot of lazy Saturday mornings together you don’t want every weekend to begin with the “waffle or … Read More

black bean salsa egg burritos

Keep these breakfast burritos in the freezer for a quick, filling, and nutritious breakfast! 20g of protein in each burrito! When a baby is born everyone thinks of doting on the mother and the baby.. but what about the dad?  It’s the mom who’s checked in at the hospital so she gets the comfy bed and meal service. The dad gets a little fold out chair to sleep on (if he’s lucky).  The baby is closely monitored to make sure he or she is eating well. But who’s making sure the dad gets something to eat?  The day before my … Read More
