Canadian Thanksgiving annually falls on the second Monday of October and is a celebration of the harvest and other blessings of the past year. This Canadian Thanksgiving we added a little Southern tradition to the menu in the form of Baked Cinnamon Apples!
Each bite is sugared, spiced, and pumpkin-y nice! :) Brushed with melted vegan butter substitute and tossed with a pumpkin spice-sugar mixture, aka bursting with comforting autumn flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves!
Why yes, yes we did bake a pan of brownies and stuff them inside a batch of classic chocolate chip cookies! They’re chewy, delightful and of course #glutenfree #dairyfree
I love pumpkin flavored everything when Autumn rolls around and these cookies are just another addition to a fall baking repertoire. Cheerio!
An excellent homebaked muffin should be three things—fluffy, tender and flavorful! And these muffins check all the boxes with A++! Gold stars all around!
Each bite is like eating the fluffiest, most softest cloud. But it’s a cake. A cake come from space to do a heavenly dance on our taste buds.
Well it’s Monday (again). Sometime I feel like it’s always Monday, but then I found out about today’s food holiday and was immediately feeling like the always-popular, deliciously-satisfying mac nut cookie could add some smiles to the beginning of the week.
Tahitian Coconut Bread makes a great breakfast, snack, or afternoon tea accompaniment. It’s decently dense, moist and rich with coconut.
You knew we’d be craving pineapple after 3 weeks in Hawaii, and we couldn’t resist adding some to one of our Labor Day favorites. The jerk seasoning gives the shrimp a hot kick, while the sweet pineapple juices cool your taste buds back down.
Picture yourself on an island. Now, chances are that island has palm trees. If your palm trees have coconuts in them, then congratulations! You’ve got yourself a coconut palm.
Why magic bars? Because the magically disappear!
Essentially deconstructed cherry cheesecake that can quickly and easily be prepared for whatever you’ve got planned this Memorial Day!
This Southern summer classic has a little bit of something for everyone. It’s sweet, crunchy, creamy, bright…basically all the flavors of summer.
So in honour of Prince Harry’s royal wedding tomorrow, we had to start getting in the spirit with some easy, peasy afternoon tea cookies. Each bite is sweet, buttery, and a brilliant compliment to the gentle bouquet of your favorite tea blend.
Essentially this is a giant blueberry pancake doughnut cake. Nuff said.
This tangy, easy made from scratch quick bread is the perfect Spring mid-week pick me up.
I mean what a combo! Creamy chocolate, crunchy pecans in a caramel-esque sauce on top of a sugar cookie crust. Wedding diet starts tomorrow, am I right?
Just whip this up and top your favorite gluten-free or Keto muffins, loafs, or whatever else strikes your fancy.
When that afternoon sugar craving strikes, it’s time for chocolate. Despite my efforts, I’m about half-and-half on my ability to resist temptation. Partially because I love chocolate and partially because in America we have more than our fair share to choose from. There’s something for every preference. Are you craving something creamy and nutty? Sweet and salty? Crunchy and Coconutty?
Still not sure what to bring to an Easter Sunday gathering? The answer—Crispy Rice Treat Nests! For a fun Easter-twist we’re taking the classic, gooey childhood favorite + turning them into a mini nests with candy “eggs.”
If there was one statement that applies to this salad it would definitely be “Not all salads are created equal.” This ain’t your run-of-the-mill garden variety, toss-some-lettuce-and-veggies-last-minute salad. It’s wow-wow-wowza!!!
Anyway back to the point of today’s post, in true Hawaiian fashion we needed to introduce more coconut to our island diets—in the form of Long-Grain Coconut Rice!
We'll we’re back in the states for a while, but that doesn’t mean we’re unpacking our bags just yet. We’ve got a couple more jammed-packed, busy weeks on the horizon, and we’re kicking it off with a weekend trip to Maryland!
You can’t deny that peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in Heaven! Even though it’s not necessarily for everyone (moi), you can’t deny their appeal.
I am literally eating one as I am writing this because they are absurdly good! And I’m not just saying that because I made them.
If you’re from British Columbia or the American Northwest, chances are you know and love these no-bake bars!
It’s February 13th and you know what that means…GALENTINE’S DAY!
I’m never sure what day it is or where half my clothes are, but I do know one thing—I am constantly craving smoothies!
I CAN NOT believe I haven’t shared anything s’more-related with y’all yet...The combination of creamy, melted chocolate and gooey, toasted marshmallow sandwiched between sweet, crunchy crackers. It’s a pairing that needs to be celebrated this month of love.
With the inevitable health kick each New Year brings as well as us realizing we’re getting married in 8 months (!!!), we’ve really been focusing on eating better, eating less, and exercising more consistently. But every once in awhile you’ve got to allow your body to rest and enjoy the sweeter things in life…that’s right, I’m talking about cookies!
