Carrot Cake Pancake Stack with Whipped Cream Cheese Topping

I originally wanted to make something like this for Max as a celebration breakfast “cake” on his birthday since the party and big cake are usually on a different day. But this year his birthday fell on the weekend and we ended up having his party on his actual birthday. So I left the idea…

Whole-Wheat Molasses Zucchini Bread with Chocolate Chips & Walnuts

Whole-Wheat Molasses Zucchini Bread with Chocolate Chips & Walnuts

This is definitely a lot different then your typical zucchini bread. The combination may sound a bit strange but I’m telling you, it really works. Max was nervous about trying it because zucchini is one of the few things that he truly dislikes. Thankfully he’s always game to at least give things a try as…

Instant Blueberry Banana Oatmeal with Pecans

Instant Blueberry Banana Oatmeal with Pecans

We’re still on the homemade instant oatmeal train. I find it’s quicker to make individual portions in the microwave then one pot on the stove and I like being able to make the kids portions first so they have a bit of time to cool down before we all dive in together.

No-Bake Maple Walnut Granola Clusters

No-Bake Maple Walnut Granola Clusters

This recipe came about as kind of a mistake. I was attempting to make a new granola bar recipe using unprocessed sugars and the results were one crumbly, crispy granola bar that ended up basically just turning into granola. So we crumbled some up and made parfaits with unsweetened yogurt and fruit. Oh my goodness…

Mini Dutch Baby Berry Baskets

Easter is almost upon us! It’s one of my favourite holidays, not only because of what it signifies but because it kicks off all things spring! All those baby chicks, pastel colours, baskets full of flowers and berries. It’s a bright spot at the end of a long winter. If you’re throwing an Easter brunch, it doesn’t…
