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

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 (of course I may ruin that too after making these sourdough crackers as well)! That was a … Read More

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

orange poppyseed protein waffles

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

high protein pancakes DIY power cakes

Keep this high protein pancakes mix on hand and you’ll only be a couple steps away from a filling nourishing breakfast! I might be breaking ALL the recipe creation rules with this one. There’s the “list all ingredients in order of use” rule…. I ALWAYS follow that one. It’s a big pet peeve of mine when I’m making someone else’s recipe and I’m scrambling to find how much to add of the ingredient that comes next. Making a recipe isn’t some kind of treasure hunt. Just give it to me straight! Then there’s the “list ingredients added at the same time in descending order” … Read More

world’s best scrambled eggs

world's BEST scrambled eggs

I know what you’re thinking: Aren’t scrambled eggs just scrambled eggs? How can you make them better or worse than what they are.  I know the second thing you’re thinking too: Do I really need a recipe? Again, aren’t scrambled eggs simply that: eggs that are scrambled? Yup, I used to think those things too. I would have laughed at someone if they had tried to post a recipe for scrambled eggs, let alone make the audacious claim that they were the best in the world.  Until a little thing called serendipity came my way. I like to add a touch … Read More
