Maple berry muffins

The other day my friend served muffins at a play date and they were so good I asked for the recipe right away.  She wanted them to be more moist so I made a few modifications. The results are so tasty I needed to get the muffins out of sight so they would last for through the week. Bonus, it is maple syrup season and these are a delicious way to incorporate one of Canada’s staples =) Here is what you need: 2 cups flour (I used 1c white, 1c whole wheat) 1/4 cup  sugar 1 tbsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp baking...

spiced milk (for coffee)

It’s getting to be Hot Coffee season and who doesn’t love a latte. Last week I fused some flavors in a crock pot to make spiced milk. You can simply pour some of this in your coffee flat or heat it up and froth it first. Of course if you do not drink coffee, you can certainly enjoy a glass of warm spiced milk on its own or add it to your hot chocolate. Very easy recipe and next to no prep time In a crock pot add: one bag of milk (about 6 cups) or half the recipe if you wish 2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2...

Last night I started to get a cold and didn’t feel like spending the night in the kitchen. Luckily we had a cooked chicken from loblaws that was easily paired with leftover veggies, salsa and 1/2 an avocado – easy! Dinner done! However, there was still lunch to think about. After putting it off all night, I knew I had to get something together…without a trip to the grocery store, or making a mess of the freshly cleaned kitchen. I am eating my solution now, and it is satisfying. A can of flaked...

For 8 weeks I participated in a food challenge with my gym. Having never been on a diet before, this way very hard! If you know me, you know that every tooth in my head is a sweet tooth. I love dessert and had never gone without it until this…. Luckily, I really enjoy cooking so eating real food was a treat. The best thing was that it got me consciously thinking of what I was consuming. I realized that I mindlessly grazed on crackers, dips and cereal without much thought. for this challenge, I didn’t...
