Oh man, you guys. I don’t even know where to begin with this recipe. I am without words. If I could choose a recipe for you to simply just taste so that I didn’t have to bother trying to explain just how amazing it is, this would be it. This is no ordinary frozen yogurt…

Easy Peppermint Truffles & Instant Hot Chocolate (dairy and processed-sugar free)

It will definitely be a white Christmas over in our neck of the woods. We’ve got enough snow to go around, and each day, we’ve been trying to get out and enjoy it in some way. On cold blizzard-y days we might go for a short walk, on warmer days we might hit the slopes…

Pumpkin Oat Bread

Last year I was all about the pumpkin. I couldn’t get it out of my head. But this year, I felt like I was over it before pumpkin season even began. To me, pumpkin season starts in October and seeing the internet packed with pumpkin recipes at the beginning of September, while I was still picking…

Hazelnut Coffee Creamer

Homemade Hazelnut Coffee Creamer

Ever since making Hazelnut Ice Cream I knew I had to make a hazelnut coffee creamer. Hazelnut flavoured coffee has always been one of my favourites, even before I was a coffee drinker. I took the general concept from the ice cream and ground up some toasted hazelnuts, steeped them in a mixture of milk, cream, and…

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…

Apple Oat Scones

Apple Oat Scones

Ok. So it’s pretty obvious that I’ve been on a no-processed-sugar kick lately. It’s true. I’ve also been on a whole wheat flour kick, although a bit more quietly. Does this mean I won’t be sharing sugar laden sweets on the blog anymore? Absolutely not. There’s no way I’m going to be trying to healthify…

Cinnamon-Honey Marshmallows

Cinnamon Honey Marshmallows

Ever since my kids and I were sick, I’ve been avoiding processed sugar like the plague, because of it’s annoying habit of lowering immunities. I always like making things processed-sugar-free when I can anyways, because it’s just plain healthier all around. Last week was bitter cold and snowy. We are in full fledge winter over…
