Blueberry Streusel Scones with Sweet Lemon Butter

Blueberry Streusel Scones with Sweet Lemon Butter

Blueberries and lemon are such a natural pairing. And, when you fold them into flour and butter – divine. If I were going to throw an Easter brunch these would definitely be on the menu. Putting streusel topping on scones is such a brilliant idea and the lemon butter is so good I could almost…

Southwestern Breakfast Skillet

Southwestern Breakfast Skillet

Going to a diner for breakfast has always been one of my favourite meals to eat out. Nothing like a plate full of grease to get you going in the morning! :) It’s actually been forever since I’ve gone out for breakfast. Somehow getting young kids ready and out the door with grumbling tummy’s just…

Nutella Love Letter Pancakes

Nutella Love Letter Pancakes

Growing up my mom always did something special for us kids on Valentine’s Day. Usually a little goodie basket and a cute valentine. We knew the evening would be my parents time together but she always made sure to do something special for us during the day. My own kids don’t really know much about…

Pear & Walnut Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Pear & Walnut Sour Cream Coffee Cake

It took me four hours to get this coffee cake in the oven. This has no reflection on the difficulty of the recipe but rather my life as a mom. From exploding diapers to early bath times to bedtime tantrums this cake went through many waiting periods. I think it’s pretty safe to say it’s…

Mocha Chip Banana Bread

Mocha Chip Banana Bread

This banana bread is much more reminiscent of a cake – with its rich chocolate flavour and deep undertones from the coffee. It’s almost guaranteed to win over even the harshest banana bread critic. The deep chocolate look of this bread speaks romance to me. Although, the most romantic we got was to sit huddled…

Fruit-Bottom Yogurt

When it comes to packing lunches I’m no great authority on the subject. My husband gets fed lunch every day at work and my son’s barnehage makes him fresh snacks and meals every day. I’m a lucky woman. But, it also means I’m stumped for tips on packing meals to take away. At least for…

Maple Roasted Peach Crisps

Max started barnehage (preschool) this week. I have to admit it’s been rather rough on me. This is the first time he’s been away from home consistently and the house feels so empty. I’ll admit that more than a few tears have been shed, on my part not his. He’s absolutely loving it and not…

This is a guest post from Theresa of The Craving Chronicles. I’ve been wanting to make Cherry Clafouti for a long time so I was very excited when Theresa shared this recipe. I’ve tried a few recipes from her site and they were all spectacular, and I know this will be no different. Make sure to take a peek…
