Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Muffins

This is fall in a muffin: pumpkin and snickerdoodle mixed into one. So easy to make!

I know what you're thinking. Pumpkin?? What is happening?!? It is nowhere near fall, and yet I am pulling out a can of the good stuff to make some pumpkin treats.

To be fair, this is practically the only time I can get my hands on a can of pumpkin. As soon as the fall seasons hit, good luck finding a can in your local grocery store. Or any grocery store for that matter. How long does a can of pumpkin last? Maybe I should stock up now for the fall months.

We made it to the weekend!! And a long weekend at that!

I'm not the only one celebrating. The sun is shining so bright, I can hardly believe it is February in Toronto. I actually had to take my jacket off when going for a walk this morning, it was so warm.

And to celebrate this long weekend and warm weather: cupcakes!

Kale, Rice and Vegetable Freezer Casserole

Here is a quick and easy freezer meal for those busy weeknights. Loaded with all of your favourite vegetables.

Talk about a busy week!

Can you believe that I haven't baked anything in a week. At LEAST! In fact, I don't even remember the last time I got the stand mixer going. This is a problem that needs to be fixed ASAP.

But for now, getting through the week is my top priority. Which means that I need some quick meals I can make fast when I eventually come home at 8pm and am starving. Good thing I had the forethought to make a freezer meal on Sunday!

Raise your hand if you are a last minute planner!

Having a super busy job and no time to even plan my dinners, my hands are both raised all the way up. I can't even imagine what it would be like to have kids. Right now I am quite content with a two person household and a job that hardly gives me time to breathe.

So for the last minute planner (like me), I present to you these Rice Krispie Hearts.

Macaroni and Cheese packed with two types of cheese and baked to perfection.

Excuse me while I dive face first into this cheesy pasta.

So you all remember your childhood Mac and Cheese? I'm not going to name any names here, but it's the kind of Mac and Cheese that you get in a box with the weird colored powdered cheese? The one that Wikipedia names a contender as the Canadian national food. (You know I'm proud to be Canadian when..)

Well you can throw those boxes away. This is the Mac and Cheese recipe to end all Mac and Cheese recipes.

Nutmeg Cupcakes with Pink Cream Cheese Frosting

Happy Valentine's Day Month! I baked you cupcakes!

And I promise, this will be the last cupcake recipe for at least... a week. I just can't stop making them!

If only I had cupcake fever in 2010 when cupcakes were all the rage. I am always the last one to pick up on trends. So playing the clueless teacher is definitely not an act. I have no idea what kids these days are into, and I am surrounded by them all day!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Your favourite chocolate chip cookie in bar form! Soft and chewy and packed with chocolate chips.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Recipe

Craving chocolate chip cookies is just a constant in my life. Most of the time you can find me in the kitchen baking my peanut butter chocolate chip cookies or, my favourite cookie of all time, my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

Obviously, making these chocolate chip cookie bars was inevitable.
