Happy Tuesday lovelies!

Is it just me or was yesterday a tough Monday? Maybe it’s just me, but it felt sooooo long. Probably because I just couldn’t wait to finish work & post this recipe for you guys!

For those of you who follow me on SnapChat (KrisPry11), you will know that I snapped the recipe & making of these amazing Donuts this past weekend. However, being that Snaps dissapear in the land of no return after 24 hours, and for those of you who are not on the SnapChat train – I thought it would be a good idea for me to post the recipe. Agreed? 😀

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! 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 🙂

Dark Chocolate Chunk Muffins

IMG_4699

I have a serious soft spot in my heart for a good, classic chocolate chip muffin. Just the thought of sitting down with a warm, chocolate chip muffin and an ice cold glass of milk gets me all warm and fuzzy inside.

I guess chocolate chip muffins just have a way of bringing back happy childhood memories for me because when my brothers and I were still little, and my mom had to bring us along with her to the mall, she would always reward us with a special treat at the end of our trip if we were well behaved while she did her shopping. The kind of treat would change depending on which mall we happened to be in on a given day, but there was one mall close to home that used to have the most amazing muffin shop in the food court that she would often take us to.

Cranberry & Brown Sugar Cinnamon Buns

IMG_2362

Happy Wednesday {or hump day, whichever you prefer} lovelies! How is everybody? I hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start <3

So I’m just going to call a spade a spade and admit that I have gotten a little cranberry happy on the blog lately what with all the cranberry posts. So I apologize to all of you who follow along and are not necessarily cranberry fans, but I can’t help it – I’m an absolute fool for cranberries.

Fresh cranberries, dried cranberries, cooked cranberries, raw cranberries – I am of the opinion that cranberries are incredibly amazing in all of their forms. Who else can relate to my cranberry addiction? Great – let’s be friends and get reallll cranberry happy with these Cranberry & Brown Sugar Cinnamon Buns…

So here’s the thing – before I came up with this recipe, classic cinnamon buns were pretty much one of my favourite breakfast foods of all time. The simplicity a cinnamony – brown sugar filling that is encased by a soft, fluffy dough, and is topped off with a velvety layer of cream cheese frosting was pretty much my definition of heaven. That is… until I baked these Cranberry & Brown Sugar Cinnamon Buns. ​

Whole Wheat Apricot Jam Granola Bars

Confession … I am a fool for everything and anything that contains oats. Whether it be a breakfast, lunch or dinner dish, I could literally eat oat themed meals all day, everyday, and have zero problems with it. Long story short, I am an oatmeal addict. There I said it…

We have had this conversation to some extent before, but I feel like I have never really confessed just how deeply my love for all things oat related in quite so much detail. So hey – I mean as long as we’re being really honest here – I guess I should tell you that I actually have no problem eating raw oats on their own. Yup, that’s right – believe it or not, I actually find raw oats to be incredibly delicious and sometimes I eat them with a spoon straight from my oatmeal jar . Ahh… that felt so good to get that off my chest 😀

Are you thinking to yourself … “this girl has gone bananas” yet? Well, then I guess this will make you think that I am double crazy time, but I gladly sit down to an extra large bowl of warm oatmeal Every. Single. Morning. Mhmmm , I never miss an oat-meal…. {bad pun definitely intended} 😀

Cole on the other hand is a little less than enthused to sit down to a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. In fact that is probably the last thing that he wants to see on the breakfast table when he is in a hungry-bear man mood in the morning. It’s not that he wouldn’t eat the whole bowl if it was his only option for food… but, let’s just say it takes a little more pizzazz when it comes to getting him excited about consuming his required daily amounts of whole grain, oaty goodness. But it’s okay because I’m always up for the challenge…

Luscious Lemon Meringue Pie!

Good Morning everybody!

Alright my fellow Vancourverites, let’s just ignore the fact that it is the most gloomy Monday of all time here in Vancouver today, and try to focus on the positive! Contrary to the fact that it is pouring down rain and utterly miserable outside today, for the most part I think we have to admit that Spring has definitely arrived here in Vancouver! I mean let’s face it, our trees have leaves on them, our cherry blossom trees have been blooming like mad, grass is getting green, and it’s gotten to the point where you can actually step outside and be greeted by that amazingly fresh, floral scent that I can only describe as the amazing scent of Spring. All things considered it has been wonderful so far this Spring, so I will try my best to ignore this very rainy and depressing day… and I will hope that the weather forecast for the remainder of the week brightens up to include at least a little sunshine! Pleassseeeeeeeeee!!! 

Anyways, with summer just around the corner (sort of) I seem to have one thing, and one thing only on my mind – baking with lemons! Ahhh yes – it is that time of year when the sun comes out, the weather starts to get warmer and I start to experience intense cravings for the sweet and tangy delights of all things lemon infused! There is just something so fresh and crisp about lemon desserts that make for a perfect finish to those simple and light spring / summer meals, wouldn’t you agree?
