Mini Strawberry and Chocolate Chip Muffins

Bite sized strawberry and chocolate chip muffins are a great way to use up strawberries you have lying around.

Once I start start baking with strawberries, I just can't stop!

Maybe it's because I bought more strawberries than I could possibly eat before I left for Vancouver. I needed to use it up somehow, and I have made my fair share of this smoothie bowl to last me a lifetime.

Time for something new. And bite sized!

Roasted Beet and Feta Spinach Salad

Roasted beets and feta are the perfect toppings to a comforting salad. The hardest part is roasting the beets.

Aka: the easiest salad to make ever, not including those pre-made salads that you can buy from the grocery store.

I seem to be flipping around from fall to summer to winter recipes, but I just can't help it. I have major food cravings on the daily, and today it's beets.

Easy Strawberry Cake

This strawberry cake recipe is perfect to use up any strawberries you have in your fridge. A great breakfast or dessert idea.

Easy Strawberry Cake

I have finally caved. I have finally bought some strawberries.

Usually I let berry season pass me by because I have been burned so many times by buying very tasteless berries, that it just puts me off buying them for a long time. And this is especially true with strawberries. All I need to do is think back to the strawberries that I ate years ago in my grandmother's garden to realise that I can never buy strawberries as good as those. So why bother trying?

Until I realised that strawberry cake is the perfect reason to buy strawberries.

Pear Streusel Muffins

These pear streusel muffins taste like a bite of fall. Made heartier with whole wheat flour.

I know this is not a summer recipe, but I just can't help myself!

Please give me all of the streusel!!! I am longing for fall flavors, but still want to keep the summer weather. I can't help that I am so picky when it comes to my food moods. This is why it is a good thing I can bake with fall flavors all year long.

Easy Pepperoni Pizza Bites

Why is it that I have only just started buying pepperoni slices? They might be my new favourite thing.

That is, after Nutella, breakfast, mug cakes, smoothie bowls... yeah. I have too many favourites. But too many favourites is 100% better than having no favourites at all. And I think I need to add another favourite to my list. These freaking pepperoni pizza bites! Plus anything made with Pillsbury Refrigerator Biscuits. Aka: these pepperoni bites again!

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup

This soup can be made ahead of time and put in the freezer until you need it. Made in the Crockpot, which makes this the perfect weekday meal.

Is anyone else boiling in this heat??

Today, we had a heat warning, so I decided it best to NOT turn on the stove, and turn to my slow cooker instead. I don't want to have my oven on on a hot day like today.

The heat also makes me feel sluggish too, which is why I am so glad that I made this soup in advance! I put all the ingredients in a freezer bag, which means that I can take the bags out in case of emergency. Like a boiling hot day.

Strawberry and Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

Stay cool this summer with a smoothie bowl! This one is made with strawberries, blueberries, bananas and spinach.

Strawberry and Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

I am going through a HUGE smoothie bowl phase right now. I mean, it's bad. Sometimes I stay up at night thinking about all of the smoothie bowl combinations I can make, and what toppings to add.

I totally wish I was kidding, but this is for real how I end up with sleepless nights. I am starting to miss my sleepless nights being caused by staying up all night marking tests and homework.

(Total lie. Smoothie bowl thoughts are always the best thoughts.)
