Maple Pumpkin Pie with Brown Sugar Meringue

Holidays can be tricky these days with so many people eating different diets. It can get stressful and time consuming to try and make things that are suitable for everyone. I’m a big believer in everyone being able to eat everything that is served and it doesn’t have to be as stressful or complicated as…

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…

Maple Spiced Candied Nuts

One of my favourite things to snack on this time of year is spiced candied nuts. The sweet, salty, spicy combination just can’t be beat in my books. And, the fact that it’s a slightly healthier Christmas treat is just an added bonus! This year, in my ongoing attempt to cut out processed sugar, when…

Maple Gingerbread Syrup & Latte

Maple Gingerbread Syrup & Latte

I got this idea of making a processed-sugar-free simple syrup, for our beverages, out of pure necessity. We’ve been sick more often this year then any I can remember, which I’m crediting to the fact that Max started going to playschool. And, every time we get sick it seems to be when we’re not being…

Maple Pecan Granola

I’ve come to love homemade granola. When I first discovered my favourite granola recipe, no store-bought granola could compare. And the fact that it’s sweetened with maple syrup instead of sugar gives it extra bonus points in my book! I’ve been craving maple and pecans lately so I decided to switch things up a bit and…

Maple Roasted Almond Butter

Max is my good little eater. He’ll eat basically anything and everything under the sun. But for some strange reason he doesn’t like peanut butter. He always loves helping me make scrambled eggs and toast in the morning but he’s always adamant that his toast have only “just honey”, nothing else to adulterate it. But,…

Maple Brown Butter Semifreddo

I can’t believe I’ve never made brown butter before. I knew it wasn’t difficult to do, this was just the first time a recipe I was making actually called for it. Now that I’ve tried it, I think I just might be addicted. I’ve heard it a million times, but it really is amazing what…

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…
