Canada Day is less than a week away and I have made nothing!

What makes it worse is that this is a very important year for Canada. It is Canada's 150th anniversary. Which makes me feel that much more unpatriotic for neglecting to make anything up until now.

I'll try to make up for it in the remaining days. My kitchen will be crazy busy with the recipe testing!

This is for all those oatmeal haters out there.

Do NOT knock oatmeal before you try its many variations. After using up my leftover coffee making a mocha oatmeal, I became addicted to oatmeal! And if you were around during my mug cake phase, you know that when I get addicted to something, I will be churning out recipe after recipe until I get bored.

But somehow I don't think that will happen any time soon.

Is there anything more comforting than fudge?

While I'm sure most of you make fudge for Christmas and other December holidays, I am all about making fudge in the summer. For one thing, it is a dessert I can make that doesn't require me to turn on my stove. So major win there.

For another, it is so portable! I can't tell you how many camping trips I have been on with a little Tupperware container of fudge. Yup, I am a very fun camper.

It is getting hot out!!

How are you dealing with the heat? I just bought some spf 100. I didn't even know that was a thing until I saw it in the stores! It's not really for me, more for my fiance. He burns just looking at the sun - no joke. Don't think it will make all that much difference, but we will see.

Now all I need to do is keep the house cool so we have a nice refuge from the heat. Thank God for the slow cooker, am I right?

It's another protein powder recipe y'all!

I have been on a mission to use up my protein powder. Not because I don't like it, it is just that it doesn't mix well in liquid, so it gives me the excuse to make delicious snacks with it.

And as you can see from my blog, I am all about making sweet snacks.

First of all, I want to thank you all for the advice on my ant situation! I bought some Raid trap poison...things, and they worked wonders! I haven't seen an ant in here for a couple of days now, and I am ecstatic!

Okay. Enough about ants. Let's talk my new obsession: oatmeal!

Chocolate Coconut Cream Cake

Moist dark chocolate coconut cream cake. Made in one bowl, which means less dishes.

Chocolate Coconut Cream Cake Recipe


Again finding use for my coconut cream. Last time in my strawberries and cream oatmeal - which, honestly, if you missed it, it is my new favourite way to eat oatmeal hands down. But now I am adding an entire can of coconut cream in a cake!

This past week, I have had a slice of this cake for breakfast more times than I would like to admit. I should really stop leaving cakes on my kitchen table. That is probably half of the problem.
