Nutella Swirled Blondies

These are the best blondies I have ever made so far! I love me a good chewy blondies recipe. Beautifully swirled with Nutella.

It's Friday! We made it through the week!

Work is finally slowing down as we reach the end of the school year. Can you feel it? If you have children or work at a school, I am sure you are anxiously awaiting the end of June.

Or not so anxiously if you are me. I am saying goodbye to my first graduating year of grade 12s at this school. Tears will be shed. If you are looking for me, I will be the teacher in the back. Wearing sunglasses. No one will know.

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Oat Bars that are packed with peanut butter for some extra protein. Perfect grab and go breakfast, or snack.

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

I totally made you the easiest breakfast/snack food ever.

Combining two of my favourite things: oat bars and peanut butter!!

Yeah, I know I have about 50 bazillion favourite things. But grab and go breakfasts will always top the list. As I am sure it does for many of you who are almost too busy for breakfast.

Ham, Cheese and Bacon Soup

This soup is a great recipe to make to use up your leftover ham. So cheesy and comforting.

Can I interest you in one of the most delicious soups I have made in a long time?

I am loving everything about this soup! The cheese! The leftover ham! And, of course, the bacon!

Since I bought a huge ham this Easter weekend, I knew I would have tons of it leftover for the weeks to come. So, I started planning early.

Long weekend! I am so ready to relax!

Do you have any plans for the long weekend? My only plan for this weekend is to fully relax. Like, have a day where I don't feel guilty about sleeping in and watching movies all day. So far, I have been doing a fairly good job with this. Waking up at 9:30! As opposed to my usual 6 AM start time. Getting caught up watching Netflix shows for the rest of the day...while correcting tests at the same time.

Hey, baby steps. I have enough tests to mark to last me a couple of episodes more. Maybe then I can truly relax.

Strawberry Bread

Moist strawberry bread that is so easy to make. Perfect spring recipe.

Will you judge me if I told you that I made this strawberry bread twice in the past week?

And I am only calling it strawberry "bread", because the fact that this is basically strawberry pound cake and should only be consumed as a dessert will send me spiralling in shame.

I will admit it now: this was my breakfast, snack and dessert for the past 7 days. Sprinkling in the strawberries was the only thing that made me feel good about calling it a breakfast food.

Baked Asparagus Fries

Asparagus fries make the perfect appetiser to any meal. Baked, and covered in breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Made with only 5 ingredients, and super addicting.

I almost feel guilty about writing a post right now when I should be doing work.

But these asparagus fries are so good, I can't help but share them! They are so easy to make, I can make them in between grading papers. Which are due tomorrow, and I still have 4 to go. They are looking longer and longer every time I pick them up.

Anyone else sad that March break is over?

Even though it's always a drag heading back to work after a nice relaxing holiday, I am thankful that I have amazing students and supportive colleagues to make my day go by so quickly, it seems like I'm not even working at all.

But all the lazy mornings sleeping in (on Vancouver time even!) is going to catch up with me tomorrow morning. Getting out of bed is the hardest part about my day.
