Okay so I have been MIA again. What else is new? I’m so sorry you guys! I owe you so many recipes, and I promise it is on my list of things to do and I promise to get some more posted this weekend. Please just know that I appreciate you all so much everyday for following along and for requesting recipes. You all truly brighten my day, everyday.
In the meantime I thought I would just do a quick little post, because this Bluebarb Crisp was SO easy to whip up and quite frankly I think you need it in your life this weekend.
Keepin’ this post sweet & simple today 😉 Scroll down for the recipe & I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

This past weekend was a good one. I mean probably not in the way you are imagining. Like, I didn’t spend the weekend at Disneyland or go bungee jumping or take a kite-surfing lesson. Nothing extra cool like that; but I did manage to be uncharacteristically productive in the accomplishing tedious (but very necessary) tasks department.
For instance; I organized my pantry –something I have been meaning to do for weeks… (okay more like months); I vacuumed; Cleaned my office (so necessary); Retrieved a package from the post office; Purchased groceries for the week (like a proper adult); Forgot a couple of items at the grocery store, which I then returned to said grocery store to purchase; Went to the bank (am I the only person still doing this?); Did multiple loads of laundry (it got real); and I remembered to water the plants at my parents place while they are out of town.
#productive… kind of.
You guys! Two recipe posts in one night… This might be a new record for me. Can I get a hell yeah!?
It’s the middle of the night and I am wide awake – which is SO unlike me. Truth be told, I am usually dozing off on the couch by 9:00pm (seriously). So the fact that I am still up right now is nothing short of a miracle and purely because I am just drunk with happiness from the events of this past evening.
It’s currently the middle of the night and I’m wide awake. It’s one of those nights, where all of the excitement from the day makes sleep feel totally unnecessary. So here I am, doing some much needed catch up on recipe posts you have been so patiently waiting for. It feels great right now, but I know I will regret this no sleep decision tomorrow morning. Strong coffee will definitely be a non-negotiable.
But we are here now… so let’s do this.
Have you ever made homemade dulce de leche? It’s a game changer – and actually quite an easy game changer when you make it with a can of sweetened condensed milk.
To be perfectly honest, I can eat dulce de leche just straight from the jar. It’s that good. But pair it with a chewy chocolate chip cookie & you will be forever changed.
Is this chocolate chip cookie cake a little over the top? Perhaps. But if there is one thing I know for sure; it’s that if this cookie cake is considered wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
You can find the recipe for this Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake can be found on the Tastes of Lizzy T website
You guys… these cookies. I die.
I think you guys know we well enough now to know that I am a sucker for a cookie with a crackly top – like the very sight of crackly cookies makes me weak in the knees. So needless to say these cookies are pretty much what dreams are made of for me.
Crisp crackly edges, with a gooey, chewy, brownie-like texture on the inside; these cookies are simply too good to stop at one… or two, or three… okay you get the picture. So I basically ate a whole tray of these cookies – but they were beyond delicious so what’s the problem?
Can we just talk about hot cross buns for a minute? Or like maybe five minutes because… hello – they are delicious! I mean anything that involves a warm soft, fluffy bun, studded with goodies & topped with a sweet glaze is right up my ally!
Also, Easter is right around the corner, which means baking fresh batches of hot cross buns on repeat until then is perfectly acceptable and therefore we should all take full advantage of this opportunity 😀
Confession; I’m pretty sure I promised you all this recipe about nine months ago… so to those of you who requested it, I am sooo sorry it took me so long to get it up. Hopefully we are all operating under some form of the saying “better late than never,” and we can put this injustice behind us 😀
How do you guys like your oatmeal muffins? Hot? Cold? Plain? Buttered?
Hands down, my favourite way to eat an oatmeal or bran muffin is warmed up, with a smear of creamy butter and a dollop of raspberry jam. I mean seriously, does it get any better than that?
