Flourish Protein Cookies

Mornings around here are hectic! Lunches need to be made, the kids need to find their uniforms, and of course, they need to eat breakfast. Pancakes are Morgan's favourite, Eggs and toast are Kendalls, they rarely agree on anything. Except! Cookies for breakfast, yup that's right, cookies.

DIY Almond Milk

The need I feel to embrace a more simplified, cleaner lifestyle has everything to do with my vintage soul. The way everything was done "back then" intrigues me. Life, food, decor, the method just seemed so much simpler, and folks seemed happier.

Carrot Cake Bars

I don't know how it happened, but I LOVE carrot cake everything. I still remember years ago when my sister told me she was baking her husband a carrot cake for his birthday and I joked around that he must have been really bad that year.

Quick & Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Last night was Date night for Anthony and I, which meant my parents were coming over to have dinner with the kids. My Mom likes to bring her food over. She doesn't trust I'll have everything she needs which is probably the case. When she was going over the menu, she mentioned peanut butter cookies, and immediately Anthony's sad expression popped into my head, he's been gluten-free for the past 2 years.

Like most 80's babies, Anthony and I grew up eating hamburger helper. To be honest, though I've never made it, we've always tried to eat as real as possible. Except for fish, a few times a month Anthony eats a gluten-free, vegetarian diet which, can be a real pain when you want a quick meal that's filling, inexpensive, and that the kids will eat. This week I played around with a gluten-free vegan pasta dish that just happened to taste like hamburger helper. This recipe is good fresh, as leftovers, and freezes well.

Gluten-Free Starbucks inspired muffins


A few years ago, Anthony and I were lucky enough to get tickets to one of the last Tragically Hip concerts. The only catch was it was in Ottawa. My parents stayed the night to watch the kids and Anthony, and I headed out for a rare two days away. We stayed close to the Parliament Hill in the Lord Elgin Hotel. Located in the lobby or around the corner ( I can't remember) was a Starbucks. The morning after the concert we grabbed a coffee and a muffin. It was my first time having one of those blueberry cake like treasures.
