Apple Crumble

Happy Friday! I know in my last post (link here), I said I would get back to several dishes in one post but once again, this has been a pretty busy week. The only recipe I made this week was this delicious apple crumble. I went apple picking last weekend and I’ve been mostly eating…

Fresh Peach Pudding

Happy Monday everyone! I am starting this week with an interesting recipe for me, this is something I’ve never really heard of before. This is called peach pudding, the only pudding I’ve ever had has come from a box or a Jello cup and it definitely was not made with fresh fruit. This was a…

Plum-Side-Down Cake

After the not-so-success of the last recipe (Orangesicle Bars), I was looking for a win today. Today’s recipe is another dessert – a cake – with a pleasant fruity component. As you can see from the name, this was a plum upside-down cake. I have never made an upside-down cake before, they always seemed intimidating…

Orangesicle Bars

Okay, I love creamsicles so I was very excited to make this dessert. The crust is an oat base, like an oatmeal cookie and the filling is an orange-coconut mixture. Classic creamsicles are not made with coconut so I was a little weary there. Let’s dive in, starting with the crust. It’s made with oats,…

Grapefruit Cake

We are moving along in the dessert section and today we have this grapefruit cake. I am one of those people who love grapefruit so I was very excited about this recipe. This cake seemed to promise a bunch of grapefruit flavour because there is juice and zest in the cake and then actual grapefruit…

Green Grape Pie

This, this was an interesting recipe. I’ll say it right now though, give it a chance. I love all kinds of pie but had never heard of grape pie before. When I first saw this recipe, I thought “there’s no way it could be good”. The idea of hot and cooked grapes doesn’t sound great…

Strawberry Rosewater Cheesecake

Mmm cheesecake. It’s one of my favourite desserts. But as we know, the Brave New Meal cookbook is a vegan one which means this cheesecake is not made with cream cheese. This is made with cashews! When soaked (and blended), cashews give such a nice creaminess to whatever you use them in – which was…

Apple Mormon Muffins

Okay let’s do this, second recipe from the brave new meal cookbook! These are the apple Mormon muffins which have a story behind the name. These are packed with goodness! Let me just get this out there – if you need to increase your fiber, you got to make these muffins. There are bran flakes,…

Chocolate Bark

I think I’m in a chocolate mood. It’s funny, I don’t even have such a sweet tooth, but recently, I’ve been indulging a little more than usual. Nothing wrong with that though, as long as you don’t go overboard with anything, everything is good in moderation! If you missed my last post – PB &…

Nana’s Chocolate Crunch No-Bake Cookies

Looking for a very easy treat to make? I’ve found it. This is my next recipe from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook and they are no-bake cookies. They’re made with only 3 ingredients – chocolate, peanut butter and saltine crackers. Yes, you read that correctly, saltine crackers. I was a little skeptical of it at first…
