Lemon Cheesecake Tart

Fact: This is my first blog post in almost a month. Clearly I am the worst “blogger” ever.

Truth: I have been feeling totally un-creative lately… is that a word un-creative? Probably not – let’s go with un-inspired instead. I have been feeling totally un-inspired. I feel ridiculous saying this by the way. I mean how silly is it that I couldn’t even manage to post a recipe for a simple batch of cookies in the span of a month? But seriously don’t ask me that, because I don’t have anything close to a good answer to that question.

So instead I thought this might be a good time for some real talk today… how do you feel about that? No worries if you’re not into it, you can always skip down to the recipe – I won’t be offended. But for those of you who are still with me, here goes…

Rhubarb-Banana Crumble

IMG_2024

Happy Monday lovelies!

So this morning as I reached into the refrigerator for some cream to add to my much needed coffee, I couldn’t help but be enamored by the presence of a gorgeous bundle of bright pink rhubarb I picked up at the farmers market over the weekend. It looked so beautiful all bundled in it’s bow-tied string, that I honestly wanted to cradle it in my arms an cherish it for always…. is that strange? Don’t answer that.

Seriously though, can rhubarb season just please never end????¬†I don’t know about you but I just love that gorgeous pink stuff. It’s one of my all-time favourite ingredients to bake with because it is so versatile and pretty much tastes amazing with anything and everything. Every year I try it out with different fruit combinations and I always find myself falling in love with the new flavour combo’s.

Such was the case when I stumbled upon a recipe in one of my favourite Canadian Living cookbooks for Rhubarb-Banana Crumble. Say whatttt????? Now I must be straight up crazy, because until I saw that Canadian Living recipe, I had never even thought to pair together rhubarb and banana; But as soon as I thought about it, I was like uhmmm duh!! ¬†So after putting my own spin on the recipe and subsequently tasting {a lottt} the result… I have to be honest with you guys and say this is hands down my favourite rhubarb dessert of the season.

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! I have been a busy little bee lately getting prepped for the start of the 2016 Farmers Market season, and I just realized that didn’t make time for recipe post this week! 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 ūüôā

Chocolate Velvet Pie

If you have spent more than roughly thirty seconds on my blog, you will know that it’s no secret that I kind of have a special relationship with chocolate. But for those of you who are just meeting me, let me just say this… I love chocolate. I literally have zero self control when it comes to chocolate. Once I have a piece, I can’t stop until I have consumed the entire chocolate supply.

And since we’re getting to know each other, I should probably tell you that I also love pie.¬†Suffice to say,¬†the idea of chocolate and pie coming together in a¬†magical harmony of homemade, baked¬†deliciousness is pretty much my idea of heaven.

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.

Mhmmmm…. so can you tell I love pie or what?

Homemade Fruit Strudels

Confession: I am a jam addict. That’s right – I said jam addict; No exaggeration.

What can I say? I go all in with jam. I don’t just like jam¬†– I loveee jam.

Given the opportunity, I will pretty much put jam on everything and anything; Toast, banana bread, muffins, scones… Heck just hand me a spoon, with¬†a great big jar of that fruity goodness, and I’ll be the happiest camper there ever was.

Grandmas Pumpkin Pie

Happy Friday lovelies!

So I have to start today’s post off with an apology and say that I am so sorry that I was never able to get this recipe posted in time for Canadian Thanksgiving, :(:(¬†{seriously¬†disappointed¬†in myself},¬†but I figured better late than never right?

So if you are a fellow Canadian and in need of a reason to bake up a Pumpkin Pie {not that you ever really need a reason for pumpkin pie} perhaps a Friendsgiving dinner is in order?¬†I have to confess that¬†I have¬†been toying with the idea of hosting a Friendsgiving at our place¬†just¬†so that I could justify baking up a couple of pumpkin pies…. Could this need to get my holiday pumpkin pie fix, disguised as a gathering of friends be the work of an evil, pie hungry¬†genius?¬†Possibly…

Truth be told, I have never hosted a Friendsgiving, but I really want to make this a new tradition of ours.¬†Cole and I are always running around on the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend to attend alllll of our family Thanksgiving dinners, that we never get a chance to enjoy time with friends – which I find to be a shame since my friends are one of the things that I am most thankful for in my life.¬†So I wont really know what I’m doing when I host this Friendsgiving – ¬†but one thing I do know is that ¬†it will be complete with a homemade pumpkin pie… so basically it will be amazing :p.
