IMG_6350

Good morning lovelies! So who else is so excited that Summer is finally here!? I just love summer – literally everything about it!

What are your favourite things about this gorgeous season? Here are a few of mine… Gorgeous sunshine, warm breezes, naps in the shade, aimless road trips, barefoot strolls, pink sunsets, long nights, early hikes, shorts & flip flops, sun kissed shoulders, freckled cheeks, beach days, sand castles, moonlight swims, sneaky splashes, salty hair, wet bathing suites, sandy toes, camping trips, camp fires, marshmallow roasting, s’mores making, BBQ everything, popsicle making, melting ice cream cones, farmers market wanders, & alllllll the fresh summer fruit! 

So yeah, I pretty much love everything about Summer, but I especially love the last one; summer fruits – mostly because baking with fresh fruit is probably my favourite thing ever. Case in point – these Fresh Apricot & White Chocolate Scones.

S’mores Buns

Happy weekend peeps!

Okay so I know it’s been a long time coming for this recipe; but I really wanted to wait until the weekend to post this one. I always like to do epic breakfast posts on the weekend because I feel like this is when we all get a little bit inspired to bake things like homemade breads and buns, am I right? Because let’s be real – Who has time to deal with time consuming things like yeast during on a weekday morning?

That’s the beauty of weekends for me; I get to play in the kitchen. Admittedly I sometimes get a little carried away and end up baking enough to feed about 4 families for a week, but who’s really going to complain about having some extra baked goodies around the house? I know I sure ain’t. And then there are the times when I get a little carried away with my weekend breakfast baking adventures, and I proceed to bake up deliciousness that barely even qualifies as breakfast in any other way except for its name.

Banoffee Pie Granola Bars

IMG_7247

Happy Tuesday lovelies! I am so excited to be partnering up with Best Friends for Frosting to share this super simple recipe for my Banoffee Pie Granola Bars with you today!

Not only do these granola bars make for an amazingly delicious breakfast or snack, but they also double as a super yummy dessert. Basically it’s like getting three meal options for the price of one – and what could be better than that ?!

This is a nice big recipe so you can easily serve up a couple slices for breakfast, pack a few leftovers along with you for an afternoon snack, and still have some leftover to reheat and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert. Mhmmmmm

But how do they taste you ask? Well to put it simply, they taste just how they sound… like a banoffee pie; Honestly, need I say more? The flavor of the caramelized banana combined with the toasty oats and the nutty pecans… It’s simply irresistible. If you are a banoffee pie fan, you are going to absolutely love these granola bars. So head on over to Best Friends for Frosting to get the recipe for these via this link here !

Happy Baking lovelies <3 <3

Why hello lovelies!

Oh my goodness it feels like it was a lifetime ago since I posted anything, so I apologize for being so MIA lately!

So yes, I am officially the worst blogger ever – but I really wanted to make it up to you with a quick little recipe post that you can hopefully at the very least use for some delicious breakfast / brunch inspiration in your house this weekend 🙂

Happy Wednesday lovelies! I love Wednesdays don’t you? It’s always exciting to me when we get to the mid-point of the week, because It’s at this point that I start to get super stoked for the weekend, and it’s looking like it’s going to be another sunny one this week here in Vancouver, so I really can’t wait!

In light of the return of fabulous weather and upcoming weekend vibes – I think we are due for a little mid-week celebration don’t you? So glad we agree on this – And what better way to do up a mid-week celebration, than with some breakfast for dinner tonight?

Are you a breakfast for dinner fan? Cole and I are all about the breakfast for dinner –  and especially so when it’s in the form of these Frosty Cinnamon Sugar Waffles… mhmmmm we went there.

Skillet Cinnamon Buns with Cream Cheese Frosting

IMG_1493

I have one question for you today – is there anything better than homemade cinnamon buns? Honestly, I haven’t made a batch of cinnamon buns in a long time, {pure craziness I know}, but his past Saturday I had such a craving for them, I had absolutely no choice but to make a fresh batch.

Now I have always had a little bit of a thing for cinnamon buns – and by a little thing I mean I’m basically addicted to them {you can read all about my cinnamon bun addiction in my previous post for Dark Chocolate Espresso Cinnamon Buns}.

However; I guess because it had been so long since I had actually made & eaten a batch of classic cinnamon buns, I forgot just how incredibly special they are, and I just can’t help but think that they really are the best thing to bake for a weekend breakfast in all of the land.

Apple Pie Baked Breakfast Oats

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… I’m a freak for oatmeal. Seriously, I could eat it all day everyday, and never get sick of it. No joke, oatmeal for breakfast, lunch and dinner is kind of my definition of heaven.

Warm oatmeal, cold oatmeal, overnight oats, baked oatmeal, stove top oatmeal… whatever the type just hand me a spoon and I’ll be a happy camper.

Raspberry Jam Donuts with Vanilla Sugar

IMG_9785

Cole loves it when make homemade donuts. In fact, I would venture so far as to say that homemade donuts are probably his favourite baked goodie for me to whip up.

For whatever reason Cole will never admit to me that he has one favourite treat – because as he says “everything you make is delicious” – but I know his secrets.

So when he came down to the kitchen this past Sunday morning to find these homemade Raspberry Jam filled Vanilla Sugar Donuts sitting on the kitchen counter – let’s just say I wasn’t surprised when his eyes lit up like a child’s on Christmas Day.

So I officially have Spring fever…. and it’s not even Spring yet.

I can’ help myself –  As soon as the birds start chirping outside our bedroom window in the morning, and it starts to stay light outside for longer, I always get giddy and super impatient as we wait for the official coming of Spring.

It kinda happens to me every year… do you get Spring fever too? Yes!?  Yay! Then let’s stand together in our pursuit of all things related to Spring 😀
