You guys! The weather! It has been so freaking gorgeous out I can barely stand it. I’ve had such a hard time tearing myself away from the great outdoors and getting anything even remotely responsible accomplished. The kids are not helping.

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.

There’s something relaxing and comforting about getting a pot of fruit bubbling on the stove and relaxing on the couch while it fills your house with the scent of berries and maple. This recipe especially, is so simple. No slicing and dicing, just a quick…

Blueberry Vanilla Bean Applesauce

Blueberry Vanilla Bean Applesauce

I don’t know why it took me so long to make applesauce. Well, maybe I do – because somehow in my mind it seemed like a laborious difficult process. But it really shouldn’t have taken me so long because it couldn’t be easier. I was originally going to can some but once I tried out…

Blueberry Banana (All Fruit) Smoothie

Blueberry Banana (All Fruit) Smoothie

I’m a smoothie kind of girl. Not just any smoothie though. It has to have the right ratio of ingredients and lot’s of fruity flavour. The most important thing to me in a smoothie is that the fruit shines through. If there’s too much yogurt, or other added ingredients, I find there’s too much going…
