There is something…

   I am going to be perfectly candid, if you know me at all you know I have a big sweet tooth and love all things dessert but once in awhile I love something a bit salty to snack on in the evening. Like chips. But let’s get real – chips, even the ‘healthy’ baked…

Maple Blueberry Apple Crumble

Since coming back to Canada a couple weeks ago I’ve been indulging in lots of fruit including fresh and frozen wild frozen Canadian blueberries. Blueberries remind me of my childhood, my great grandma’s stories of picking blueberries up north and, of course, homemade, warm and comforting blueberry crumble.     For awhile now a couple…

Pecan Cashew Butter

    I kinda have an obsession with nut butter. I love everything about it – it’s creaminess, nuttiness, and the way that it tastes devilishly good slathered on practically anything. One of my favourite all-time energy boosting snacks is a sweet banana dipped and slathered with silky smooth almond butter. Even though I love almond butter…
