Blackberry season is glorious. I love it so much because we have wild blackberries everywhere here, so whenever I have a hankering for blackberries, I can always count on being able to pick a bunch with my own two hands.
Blackberry bushes have taken over the back roads that are just s short walk away from our house, so when Cole and I head out for our evening walks in August, we are sure to grab a big bowl to carry along with us to fill with those juicy purple beauties. We make a game out of who can pick the most blackberries, and end up coming home with a full bowl in a matter of twenty minutes.
Usually we enjoy a fresh juicy handful with some vanilla ice cream, and then I freeze the rest for future baking adventures. They are an especially exciting freezer find during the fall and winter months long after all of the fresh summer berries have disappeared.

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.
You guys; Bacon. Cheddar. Biscuits. Honestly, are there any three words that sing together more harmoniously? I really have no words to describe them, except to say that these biscuits are literally life & you need to make em’ happen.
So, I don’t know about you guys, but as the weather starts to get a little bit more chilly, my body goes into hungry bear mode & I start to crave allllll of the comfort foods; So these extra cheesy, buttery, bacon(y?) biscuits were the result of all of my ridiculous hungry cravings. I have no regrets.
Long time – no recipe share huh!? I’ll say! It’s been a whirlwind of a summer, but the dust is starting to settle & I promise I will be blogging more recipes in the coming weeks. Especially as the seasons to Fall, because it is after all my most favourite season – for many reasons but mainly because it is the season on apples & apples are probably my favourite seasonal fruit to bake with (and you know… eat, obvs).
So I though what better way to welcome in fall, than with a recipe that has fresh apples as the star!
Jiminy Crickets it’s been a long time since my last recipe post! Gah! I am officially the worst food blogger ever…. if you could ever call me that – LOL! (probably not) Let’s just stick with calling me “that lady who posts recipes sometimes…”
Anyhoooo – this is a quick one because I’m just here to let you know that the recipe for these Peach Blackberry Scones is up on the Tastes of Lizzy T website today! Yay! I know some of you have been waiting like FOREVER for me to post this one, so head on over to her site, grab the recipe & bake some scones, because these ones are da bomb & the perfect way to end the summer!
OH – and did I mention that they have Vanilla Glaze….. well, they have Vanilla Glaze… ‘nough said.
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.
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? 😀
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.
