    I love steak. And chicken. And bacon. Did I mention that I love bacon? You're probably wondering why someone who has very clear carnivorous obsessions tendencies would be posting about chickpeas. You couldn't get anything further removed from a steak than this humble legume. But these easy...

    My baby brother just turned a quarter century recently. Gee. Saying that out loud makes me feel old. My brother grew up watching the movie My Neighbour Totoro . It's pretty safe to say that he was obsessed with it, as only a small child can be. To this day, this fluffy, gentle, forest spirit...

    This easy delicious cupcake frosting can be flavoured with a variety of things, from chocolate to zest to herbs. The possibilities and combinations are only limited by your imagination! There are many ways to adorn a cupcake, from ganache to whipped cream to glaze to sprinkles to nothing at all...

    These easy homemade apple chips are for those who need a satisfying snack without the guilt! I've never met a kid (or adult, for that matter) who doesn't like something with a crunch. But there isn't much crunch out there that isn't bad for you, or questionable, at the very best. When I'm...

    It's been a while. Baby R and Little E have been keeping my busy. But the longer days and sunny weather have me inspired. We happened to have a bag of romaine hearts in the fridge left over from a burger debacle and I was searching for something different to do with them that didn't involve...

    E has developed a definite sweet tooth as of late and this gluten-free soft chocolate chip cookie recipe is a great guilt-free way to satisfy that sweet tooth. I actually believe that I could get him to eat pretty much anything if I stuck a chocolate chip on it. But that would probably fall...

    With all the hustle and bustle of holiday meal preparations, it's nice to make a dessert that doesn't require an oven. For Christmas dinner, I made a spice ice box cake to bring to my sister-in-law's. With two babes in the house, this low maintenance dessert was just the ticket. But don't...

    This is the first post in a while, I know. A few things have happened since the last time I wrote. Welcoming a new baby into the family has definitely kept us very busy! I'm definitely feeling like we are getting into a rhythm as a family. So much so that I was able to do a make ahead cranberry...

    For my brother's birthday this year, I gifted him a birthday cake. I feel that, more and more, handmade gifts are more meaningful and heartfelt than anything that can be purchased. It's also a great idea for people giftees who don't need more "stuff." My brother requested something not too...

    There is something that is unspeakably satisfying about making bread. The smell of the yeast, the push back from the dough beneath your hands as it develops, the way the motions force you to take the time... The give and take of the whole process. We had these for lunch today and Baby E enjoyed...

    I just had an awesome visit with my friends Sarah, Rosa, and Felicia today. Needless to say, I left Baby E at home with daddy. That's the only way I get a chance to actually engage in any degree of conversation these days. Sarah was kind enough to host, so I offered to bring some goodies to...

    After far too long, we got together with friends Pat and Diane and their two kidlets for dinner at their place. It was probably the most relaxing social event that I've been to since... I can't even remember when! Big Brother Jake and Miss Stella were amazing with Baby E. I hardly had to lift a...

    So I've been seeing a lot of buzz about "no churn" ice cream around Pinterest as of late. No churn, you say?? Sign me up! I found a recipe on Delicious Everyday for a caramelized white chocolate version of the no churn treat and adapted it. I was experimenting a bit because the original recipe...

    In an effort to curb my mama guilt and anxiety about Baby E's low veggie intake as of late, I made some of these baby cookies. Not too sweet, hearty, and soft, these small biscuits are adult friendly as well. Feel free to substitute natural peanut butter for the almond butter and half and half...

    There's nothing I love more than strawberries, and while the local season is basically over, you can still get them organically at the produce store. My mom grabbed a couple cartons of said organic strawberries for me Baby E a few days ago. They were already quite ripe and there was no way we...

    So, remember when I made ribs here and then the time before that here? Well, it looks like we've become a bit of a rib house in the last little while. I ran across this recipe for sticky Asian ribs in my newsfeed a while back from Apple of My Eye and I couldn't get them out of my head. They...

    D had brought home a pack of side ribs (with breast bone in) from the store the other day. He loves ribs. He really does. So while E and D were napping (something which I probably also should have been doing) I got to work. If you've seen my previous post on my sticky and saucy Barbeque Ribs...

    I think we've hit a heat wave over here on the west coast. Other places may look at our low 30 temperatures and think, "That's nothing!" Well, it sure doesn't feel like nothing to me! I'm the type of person who would rather be too cold than too hot. You can always put on another jacket to warm...

    Here we go again.. From memory, I will try to recreate my original post of Gluten-Free and Egg Free Zucchini Pancakes. So I've decided that I'm going to write my posts in a separate place from my Wordpress App before posting it to my blog. Up until this point, being the novice and...

    With the temperature outside climbing and the summer season officially here, it's hard for me to have much of an appetite for rich, heavy, (and hot) meals. Cue quinoa to the rescue! Quinoa is such a versatile grain seed. It can be eaten hot or cold, savoury or sweet, and as a side or a main...
