So if you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I fully ate three quarters of this cake all to myself. I went back for “just one more bite” about thirty times until the cake was just about gone, because I simply couldn’t help myself…
Do I have regrets about demolishing a cake in the span of a half hour that could easily have feed ten people? No, because that’s how good this cake is. It was absolutely worth every bite, and the subsequent trip to the gym the next morning for a gnarly work out sesh.
I don’t know about you guys, but I absolutely love a good crumb muffin; Whether it’s an old fashioned cinnamon crumb muffin, or one that’s been loaded with juicy seasonal fruit – I am always game to devour one.
Fact; I have been promising many of you this recipe for wayyyy too long now. So first of all – I need to say thank you to you all for waiting so patiently for me to get my act together; and second of all – your patience was worth it, because this recipe is pretty dang tasty.
These Dark Chocolate Puffed Quinoa Bars are my definition of the perfect snack; Sweet Salty Crunchy Chocolatey Chock full of healthy goodies
Hospitality; Friendship; Exploration; and Humanity. Did you know that this is the meaning behind the Pineapple?
Pineapple has always been my absolute favourite fruit – mainly because of it’s sweet, juicy flavour and it’s fun, spiky husk; And now that I know the meaning behind this delicious fruit, I can’t help but love it even more.
Over the past couple weeks I have been on a quest; a Doughnut quest if you will…
I have been whipping up enough doughnuts to feed a small army, all in an effort to make the softest, fluffiest homemade yeast doughnuts possible, and I think I have finally done it. So all my fellow doughnut lovers unite for this recipe, because it is a winner!
It’s cherry season!!! Who else is just wayyyy too excited about this? Has anybody had the chance to go cherry picking yet? I haven’t yet, but I have been grabbing fresh local cherries from the market every time I see them. I just can’t get enough.
There is something so special about the simplicity of a basic sugar cookie. Do you know what I mean? I often find myself fantasizing about their chewy centers, crisp edges, and crackly tops…
Such was the case this morning when I had a sudden hankering for a good sugar cookie – but not just any sugar cookie; One that is loaded with chocolate and packing a necessary dose of caffeine for a Wednesday morning. Such is the story of how these Chocolate Espresso Cookies were born. It’s a bit of a boring story, but that’s okay becayse these cookies are anything but boring.
Soooo this happened… I don’t really know how it happened… but it happened, and I am definitely not sorry.
At first, I was just planning on posting this No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream for you guys… but then I made a batch of double chocolate muffins (because it was the middle of the week and I needed chocolate), and just as I was about to stuff my face with a muffin, I had a thought… warmChocolate Muffin + melty Strawberry Ice Cream? YUP!
There are so many things I love about Summer; sunshine; blue skies; beach days; warm breezes; picnics; campfires; s’mores… the list goes on and on. But if I had to choose my favourite thing about Summer, I would have to say that fresh local berries and stone fruits steal my heart every time.
Last weekend Cole and I went berry picking and came home with buckets of ripe strawberries, sweet raspberries and juicy blueberries. I am up to my ears in fresh local berries right now and absolutely loving every minute of it.
