Pumpkin Cheesecake Milkshake

Disclosure: This post brought to you by Kraft Foods. All opinions, recipes and photos are, as always, my own. Thanksgiving is drawing near so fast my head is almost spinning. I eagerly await it all year long and to think we’re this close? It is far and away my favourite feast of the year. Food, [Read On]

Inside Out Peanut Butter S’mores Bars

Ohmygoodnessgraciousohmygosh. Can we talk about this for a minute? This is so tasty, so easy, so…so…so…  I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s everything you get in S’mores with a smidgen of peanut butter for good measure, flipped inside out, covered in dark chocolate and sprinkled with mini-marshmallows. But wait… it’s like that [Read On]

1-Ingredient Cherry Ice Cream & How to Freeze Cherries

Cherry season is in full swing around here. While it’s on, I feel it is my bounden duty to eat as many of them fresh as is humanly possible. To this end, I usually order in the neighborhood of sixty and eighty pounds from my local Amish friends. We all do our best to make [Read On]

Watermelon Lime Sorbet, Frozen Watermelon Margaritas and a Mocktail

The problem is that there as many views on Mother’s [Read On]

Piña Colada Smoothies | Vegan and Dairy Free

  Piña Colada Smoothies are my new go-to smoothie. They’re kind of fabulous. You know how I’ve told you I was a picky eater when I was a kid? I was a total texture-phobe and I was dead picky about flavour combinations. My mom now says, “Hey, we just didn’t know you were gourmet.” My [Read On]

Ancient Grains Cranberry Dark Chocolate Granola| Make Ahead Mondays

I am more than just a wee bit obsessed with granola. I eat it on yogurt with fruit almost every day. On the days when I don’t have it on yogurt, I have it, um, on my hands. As in, I eat it by the handful. I especially adore clumpy clusters of granola. While I’ve [Read On]
