Ginger Molasses Cookies

I’ve made these cookies many times before, but not recently. This is the season of gingerbread and warm spices so I wanted to make these cookies again. It’s a recipe from Kathy Patalsky’s blog (Kathy’s Cookie Recipe). I love using this recipe but I always make a couple changes to it. I never put the…

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

I wanted a nice pumpkin pie, but at the same time, I wanted it to be healthyish. I was successful in finding a recipe! Chocolate Covered Katie (Crustless Pumpkin Pie) made this crustless pumpkin pie and I had to make it too. It was pretty easy to make and I followed the directions exactly as…

Dehydrated Kiwi and Strawberries

I’ve made apple chips before but I’ve ways wanted to try to make other dried fruits. I had so many kiwis in my house so I sliced those thinly, and I also sliced a couple strawberries for variety. I put them in a 170 degree oven for 2.5 hours at first and at that point,…

Almond Biscotti

I love biscotti. They’re such a good cookie and perfect for the holidays coming up soon.  I’ve made this recipe many times before from Canadian living recipes. The only changes I made to the original recipe was using slivered almonds instead of whole; and cooking them on their side (and flipping halfway) for the second…

Carrot Pulp Muffins

My dad loves to make juice and there’s always so much pulp that usually gets thrown out. This time, I wanted to use it. He made a carrot apple juice, so I used that (but any variety of fruit/vegetable pulp will work, but you could also just use the freshly grated things too).  I used…

Quinoa Cookies

I love little energy bites/cookies and it turns out that quinoa makes the perfect base. I had some leftover cooked quinoa from the dinner I made the other night (Mexican Tortilla Lasagna) and I mixed in other yummy ingredients then popped them in the freezer for a quick treat. To the plain quinoa, I added…

Peach and Strawberry Scones

I saw this post on instagram today (by fitmittenkitchen) and I knew I had to make these scones. I loved the recipe as soon as I saw it. There are no eggs and only 1/4 cup of butter which is relatively low for scones. I also used half whole wheat flour and half white flour…

Lemony Blueberry Pie

Pie is everything. One of my favourite desserts. I cheated and used a store bought frozen pie shell for this but I think it’s easier than making pastry. The filling had like 3-4 cups of blueberries which sounds like a lot but it really shrunk when it’s cooked. Mixed with the blueberries was corn starch,…

Peach and Blueberry Crisp

When you have lots of fruit in the house, the best option is to make a crisp (or crumble – what’s the difference between them anyways?) This dessert came together in no time and it couldn’t be simpler. The base is just cut peaches, some pear and lots of blueberries, mixed with a little flour…

Skinny Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies but they usually have so much butter and sugar. I found this recipe and I thought it was much better than most recipes out there.  I probably would’ve put a little less honey cause it was a touch too sweet. I like that it uses whole wheat flour and…

Yogurt Bark

I wanted a sweet dessert tonight so I made some yogurt bark. It’s incredibly easy but you need a little patience because it takes some time to freeze up. You can put whatever you like and make it your own. I have blueberry yogurt (spread a kinda thin layer on parchment paper) then place your…

Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter and chocolate. What could be better? Well adding jam puts it up there. Those 3 things together are fantastically beautiful. I recently saw a video of making homemade peanut butter cups and they put jelly in it and I thought it was a great idea. I had like 2 lbs of chocolate chips…
