I will be sharing recipes old and new, and I encourage you to try them. What would you do differently?
I am going to credit each recipe; however, I have to admit that most of the binder and torn-out (from magazines) recipes have their pictures cut and pasted onto a written- or typed-up recipe page. I didn’t even think to credit the recipes back then. Cutting and pasting, along with typing, was already taking up all my creative time! I still tear out recipes from magazines and keep them until I am ready to create something new. If I like them, they get added to my pile for typing, sorting, etc. It is an ongoing process.
One of my greatest recipe resources is Facebook, as I am on a few different foodie groups, mostly Raw and Paleo lifestyles. We share our recipes and knowledge of nutrition, experience in handling foods, and “how-to’s”. We ask questions and without any doubts, many answers come back. There are also some foodie websites one can find while combing the internet.
I will name a few of my favourites when I am posting my recipes. I will add in commentary, as well as list substitutions of ingredients. I will give tips and tricks to enhance your kitchen adventures.
I thought I’d tempt you all with a picture of the finished product first. There’s really nothing fancy about these granola bars, except their shape. You change the shape and name of something, and all of a sudden, you’ve got everyone’s attention! Well, if it works, why not? I’ve been a gym/food/fitness junkie all my Read More
I love coffee and drink it regularly, but I have never been one to drink more than one cup/day. The more active I am, the less I want to drink it, and it has always been that way. Too much of a good thing is actually not a good thing at all. I am still Read More
Nutella Protein Balls and below them, Peanut Butter Power Balls (both are no-bake versions) It was about 20 years ago when I first had a protein ball. My friend had brought some into work, and this version consisted of peanut butter, honey, milk powder, and chopped pecans. We ate it as a snack and whenever Read More
A couple weeks ago, I wanted to bake. Not really having a specific cookie in mind, I decided to “go big or go home”, so went downstairs to the pantry and grabbed as many ingredients as I could. The bricks of butter had already been taken out to soften earlier that day. I am a Read More
This is the second dish I made in my crockpot. And I have to say, it is one of my favourites. I’ll tell you a funny story. I was anti-crockpot for many, many years. Never wanted one, never was curious about them, ever! One Christmas, my BIL and SIL bought one for us. I have Read More
I was a teenager when I took my first bite of a pop tart. The first time my dad bought them, I had them as a snack, not as a breakfast item. My dad treated them like a baked cookie, clever! So, I had half of one. The thought of sinking my teeth into this Read More
I absolutely love yogurt, but there is something dairy-free, and even better, for me at least, because I love texture – Chia Seed Pudding or Breakfast Jars! Here is a breakdown of the nutritional value of chia seeds based on a 1 ounce (28 grams) serving: Fiber: Read More
This dish can be served as a main course, or as a side. When I first made this, I wasn’t sure if my children would enjoy it. They love my culinary creations, but when something is a bit “too healthy”, they pause to investigate, but eventually give ’em a try. Look at the vibrant greens Read More
I had my first taste of sweet potato pies and casseroles when I was living in Texas. I have always loved sweet potatoes, but only ever had them as a side (whole) or boiled (I was a child/teenager). Having these two dishes was an experience! This picture is a version made by a friend. I Read More
This entry was supposed to have been uploaded in December, but various things prevented me from posting in time. When reading, you will notice that the tense is not right. I apologize for this. It’s that time of year again, and although it’s the same time every year, it always hits me in the face! Read More
