Spinach Cupcakes

My son’s second birthday was coming up and I wanted to make some special cupcakes. It was a Toy Story themed party and we had the decorations up and ready. The only thing that was missing was the cake. For food we wanted to make Orion’s favourite since it was his birthday. For the cupcake…

Dandelion Honey

These golden flowers are starting to pop up every where. Why not use them to make some tasty treats and get your kids to pick all the flowers before they turn to seeds and blow everywhere. Just make sure your pick them in a clean location. We picked enough to make a couple different recipes….

Gamja Jorim (Korean Potato Side Dish)

I love going to a Korean restaurant and getting Gamja Jorim as one of the sides. I also found out that my kiddo loves this potato dish so I decided to give it a shot. Begin by peeling and dicing the potatoes into cubes. Heat up a pan on medium, add some oil and then…

Sauteed Hosta Shoots

Last year I marked my calendar to remind myself to find these before they were gone. I have a foraging note book that keeps track of when to find these treasures. I have been on the hunt for young pinecones, violets, purple dead nettle and lilac. My goal this year is to try to find…

Chocolate Zucchini Banana Loaf

My kid (and partner) is going through a stage where they won’t eat as many veggies as I would like them to. So I decided to get creative and add veggies in EVERYTHING!! Including our banana bread recipe. I used the banana bread recipe from our food blog but included 1/2 cup of grated zucchini….

Pear and Brie Tart

This is a very easy tart that is savory and sweet and would go well as an appetizer, breakfast, starter or snack. You can change this up by using other types of pears and I have seen recipes that add thyme and other herbs to it. I made this recipe using Anjou Pears. Slice the…

Bulgogi Lentils

I love trying out meals with a twist and having the need to eat healthier, cleaner, and more sustainable has made me consider adding more plant protein to my diet. Occasionally, I would cook beef bulgogi, a Korean beef dish. I love it because of the subtle sweet soy sauce taste to the beef. I…

Ginger Beer

Are you thinking of making your own ginger beer? I am on a journey to make ginger bug sodas. So far I have made some really tasty ones but I still can’t get it really fizzy. Here is the result from my first few attempts. If you haven’t checked out how to make a ginger…

Rice Krispies Nests

I love trying to make easy bake recipes for kids. Now that it’s close to Easter, you can get mini eggs in any grocery store. Using the classic Rice Krispies marshmallow square recipe and some creative decorating, we were able to make a sweet treat. I started by getting the kids to grease the cupcake…

Ginger Bug

I recently received a bunch of organic ginger and have always wanted to try making ginger beer. So my adventure with my ginger bug begins. It is recommended to use organic ginger as you will need to use the skin. Rinse the ginger and finely grate until you have about 3 tbsp of ginger, 3…
