Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

[I want to preface this by saying: since I found this, it has become one of my favourite go-to recipes, legit.] Have you ever bought a bunch of bananas and as the week goes on realize you aren’t going to eat the entire bunch  that you have purchased? This happens to me all the time….

Cob Salad… Minus the Cob

Lately, I have this problem with going down worm holes looking at videos on Instagram to get quick ideas for things to make, eat, DIY – you name it. One example; there was solid week where all I watched was lettering videos and now all I do is practice my own lettering. I guess you…

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

This should really be called, #whenyougotothemarketandalltheyhaveareapples But that is a really long hashtag title and it’s hard to read. Long hash-tag short; I went to the market one Saturday morning with Ferah. I had hoped to get some kind of fruit but it was the end of the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday season, so there wasn’t…

Chilli – Fail

Chilli has got to be one of the easiest recipes, so easy that it’s actually easier for me to mess it up, apparently. Ferah actually makes chilli all the time; but, growing up, chilli was never a thing. I became interested when I tried some Wendy’s chilli when I was an older teenager. Once I…

Slutty Salmon

Is that an inappropriate title? Not for this dish. “Slutty Salmon” is exactly how I would describe this really simple recipe. Let me start by saying that I have never been a fan of fish. Period. Growing up, I’m pretty sure I found any excuse not to eat it. Into my twenties; however, I grew…

Garlic Lovers: Asparagus and Shrimp

Are you a garlic lover, like me? If you also enjoy shrimp and asparagus, then this simple recipe is for you! I am constantly looking for simple recipes for dinner every night after work. The hard part? My boyfriend prefers something of a keto-centric diet, which basically boils down to no sugar Monday through Friday….

Oliver 🐾

What is your pet’s name? Oliver How did you come up with the name, does it have any specific significance? Oliver and Company is the only thing that comes to mind – but interestingly enough, Oliver is actually a cat in this film. The name probably came from that movie, but it was really just…

Classic Cheesecake Mini’s – Blueberry

Classic Cheesecake Mini’s – Blueberry Let me preface this by saying that when I say “classic” cheesecake I am referring to my own classic cheesecake recipe. To be specific, it’s an old family recipe. My Dad has been making it forever. After helping him make it a couple of times, I thought I would give…

Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I feel like I’ve been trying to find and make the most perfectly chewy, chocolate chip cookies for my entire life. My problems in the past include; burning only the bottoms of the cookies whilst trying to master the art of a chewy cookie up top; I’ve ended up with one giant cookie for failing…

Cross Stitching by Kristen

Cross Stitching by Kristen Something new that I started to get into this year was cross stitching. I had previously done some embroidery work when I was in a high school, but I hadn’t otherwise done anything like it in years. After collecting a ton of Pins and gathering ideas for things that I could…
