Apple-Berry Crumble

Hey everyone! The days are growing shorter, but definitely not cooler! Heat wave after heat wave, I am definitely less in the kitchen and more in the lake & pool. Over the course of the season, I have picked strawberries, blueberries, and now apples and blackberries. Living in the country has so many benefits. TheContinue reading “Apple-Berry Crumble”

Cinnamon Twists With Maple Glaze

Can I just say that time is going by unbelievably fast lately? It’s July and I’m thinking it’s still mid June.

Childhood Treats

Today I wanted to recreate a childhood treat my sister would always make us. A simple, chocolaty, crunchy, delicious square, or bar if you wanted a big piece! When we would get home from school I would sit somewhat patiently in the living room while she would make a “surprise” for me. I usually knewContinue reading “Childhood Treats”

Easy Peasy Mac ‘n Cheesy

So as typical Nova Scotian weather goes, we get a fools Spring and then what seems like a second Winter. Today, we are getting that second round of winter with about 25 cm of the lovely white stuff. I had made a big dish of mac ‘n cheese casserole last night and just for kicksContinue reading “Easy Peasy Mac ‘n Cheesy”
