Mango Coconut Popsicles

It is never too cold to have popsicles! Even when it is freezing out and windy and rainy and all those things that happen in Vancouver in October….  These popsicles will remind you of warmer tropical weather! And they are so easy to make that you can make them year round. You will need two…

Zucchini Pasta Sauce

This recipe was inspired by Meghan Markle’s Sexy Pasta Sauce.  I also saw this recipe on emmymadeinjapan. For this version I decided to use the instant pot. It is a simple recipe and all you will need some broth (or bouillon) and zucchini. So the difference between this recipe and Meghan Markle’s is that for…

Cheesy Savory Shortbread

I got this idea because my son loves shortbread cookies. I looked up a couple recipes but I wanted to make it simple and slightly healthier. To start, grate 2 cups of Cheddar cheese and 1 cup of butter cubed. Mix together the flour and the butter. Cut up the butter until you get coarse…

Cloud Bread

I have been wanting to make this recipe for a long time, but then I stopped eating eggs and kind of forgot about it until recently. This weekend I decided to try it out.  It only takes 4 ingredients and doesn’t take that long. It is also a good gluten free alternative to bread. Start…

Easy Natural Sweetener

As you may know, I still struggle with eczema.  It isn’t as bad as before but it will get worse with the holiday season coming up.  This is mostly because of all the sugar!! To fight my sugar cravings I made this date paste.  It is so sweet and tasty.  I love it on toast…

Easy DIY Smash Cake

My son just turned 1!  For his birthday we decided to make a smash cake.  I did some research and saw that there were a lot of “healthy” smash cakes.  I did think about making one of those but decided that it was not worth it since he probably wouldn’t be eating a lot of…

Fast Microwave Custard

When you are feeling lazy (or you are just lazy), here is a dessert for you.  It is super easy and tastes like creme caramel. Start with eggs, vanilla extract and whole milk.  You can use 2% if you want to cut down the fat, but it wont be as creamy and rich. Beat all…

Mini Dutch Baby Pancakes

I love pancakes but sometimes I am lazy and hate to make them.  I also love popovers.  I found the perfect combination, dutch baby pancakes!  Dutch babies taste like if pancakes and popovers had babies. Before you start, preheat oven and cast iron or muffin tin to 450 Degrees.  You need some butter. I cut…

Lactation Cookies – Cookie Mix, Small Batch,

You may have seen recipes on how to make mug cookies in the microwave all over the internet. I have always been interested in making these simple fast snacks.  I decided to try to make some for those busy mamas.  This lactation cookies recipe took a while to perfect and I wouldn’t say they are…

Lactation Smoothie Mix

October this year was a very special month.  I gave birth to my lovely baby boy.  In the beginning it was tough because I was not producing enough milk.  I ended up supplementing with formula until my milk came in. I tried using Mother’s Milk Tea but it just made my baby gassy.  I decided…
