No-Bake Pumpkin Pie

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Oh. Yes. These are as good as the baked variety but you get to eat them right away instead of salivating in front of your oven for an hour. Bonus: there were no processed flours or sugars involved in the making. So don’t feel guilty about seconds or even eating these bad boys for breakfast. I did both. Mosey on over to the lovely site Our Narratives for the recipe and a feature interview with yours truly. Enjoy!!!

Coconut Strawberry Milkshake + Strawberry Creamsicles

By | Uncategorized | One Comment
Fresh berry season is finally upon us and we couldn’t be more excited!!! Those eerily monstrous imposters at the grocery store have nothing on the juicy deliciousness of a fresh organic strawberry grown by a local farmer. The difference is really rather shocking and the former can be quite disappointing when you bite into one in the middle of January with the faint memory of a June strawberry still lingering in your taste buds. We usually stock up on two...

Spring Fling Risotto

By | Dinner, Gluten-Free, Lunch, Spring | 2 Comments
Risotto. It sounds kinda fancy but it's about as easy to make as a box of mac and cheese once you've done it a few times. Promise. When we started eating more whole, fresh foods both brown rice and  quinoa became a staple part of our meals and before long I was alternating between them almost every other day. As much as I love both of them a plain pot of grains can get a little boring night after night. I've been experimenting with simple...

Best Ever Rhubarb Muffins

By | Breakfast, Desserts, Picky Eaters, Snacks, Spring, Weekends | 4 Comments
Last week the weather took a sudden turn for cooler days and as I was out walking on our property I noticed the rhubarb - one of my absolute favourite spring treats - was ready for picking. My children on the other hand loathe both the stringy texture and the sour/bitter taste of rhubarb that I love so dearly. I usually end up making an amazingly delicious rhubarb crumble - that even disguised with a ton of strawberries - they still won't touch...

Gluten-Free Quinoa, Bean + Corn Casserole

By | Autumn, Dinner, Gluten-Free, Mealtime Rhythm, Picky Eaters, Spring, Summer, Winter | No Comments
Today I’m sharing a super easy, one dish, family friendly quinoa casserole with you. It’s great for any busy weeknight and can be made the night before and popped in the oven the next day. It also freezes fantastically and I often make a second dish of it to take out on a particularly full day. It's also the perfect dish to bring to a friend in need, with a new baby or a new neighbor. Play around with the...

Cutting Down Sugar in Our Home + 2 Ingredient Chocolate Ice Cream

By | Becoming Minimalist, Cooking with Kids, Desserts, Gluten-Free, Picky Eaters, Snacks, Spring, Summer, Weekends | No Comments
I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for 2 Ingredient Ice Cream! “You’ve had enough sugar already!” Have you ever caught yourself saying that? With a good dose of exasperation I might add. Especially when your little ones begin to bounce off the walls after having had a juice box, cookie, popsicle, fruit leather and a granola bar all in one day? I definitely have. Many, many times. My cupboards used to be constantly stocked with these snacks (many touted...
