Looking for ways to bring a taste of summer to the middle of winter? Make something fresh! An easy salsa made with fresh ingredients is a great way to brighten up your meals and might even help fight the winter blues. This is the Pineapple Salsa from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. It is a very…

Banana Nice Cream Bars

I don’t know why, but I love eating frozen treats when the weather gets cold. I guess it is along the same lines as people drinking hot coffee in the summer? Either way, I made this delicious dessert and had to share! I follow this account on instagram (@nataliesnaturalfood) and she made these banana nice…

Chocolate & Caramel Dipped Apples

For my last post of October, I wanted to make it a festive one! A few days ago, the 28th, it was national chocolate day and tomorrow is national caramel apple day, as well as Halloween. So I thought I would make a cute little snack that would be perfect for all these occasions. Typical…

Cinnamon-Apple Cake

Like I alluded in my last post (Pesto Spaghetti Squash), I am doing themed fall recipes (this week and next week). This week I am using APPLES! ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ Apples are such a versatile fruit because they can be used in sweet and savoury recipes. The first recipe I have for you is a cinnamon-apple cake….

Nutty Energy Bites (Recipe Redo)

I’m not a big fan of energy bars, but when I’m in a pinch, I love eating Larabars (not sponsored, they’re just my fave). They’re all natural and have no added sugars so they’re super healthy. Today, I made my own version of little larabar bites. I actually tried making a similar recipe back in…

Mini Peach Crumble Pies

OMG pie. I don’t know how else to start this post haha. Since peach season is still here for a little bit longer, I decided I should make a baked peach dessert! I found a recipe on a website called Dinner then Dessert for a peach crumb pie (link here) and I thought it was…

Peanut Butter Apple Rings

If you like ants on a log (celery with peanut butter and raisins/craisins), you will love these apple rings. I’ve taken that classic childhood snack that I’m sure most people have eaten, and turned it into a sweeter/dessert version. This might be one of the easiest snacks to ever exist. The name pretty much says…

Berries & Cream

The past few weeks have been so hot and humid where I live. As much as I like to bake desserts, in times like these, I try to avoid adding any extra heat to the house. Thus, berries and cream. This is a super simple dessert with any fresh berries and homemade whipped cream. Since…

Nutty Energy Bites

I’ve been trying to make something interesting almost every day. Cooking has always been a great outlet for my creativity and energy, and I’m using my extra time at home to make more special things. If you saw my crackers the other day (link here), those were really fun and can’t wait to make them…

Recipe #79: Pineapple Pico de Gallo

Pico de gallo is a fresh salsa, traditionally made with tomatoes. This pico, made with pineapple put a tropical twist on that classic. This was a very summery salsa which almost took my mind off the cold winter outside. Fresh salsa is just leaps better than jarred stuff. If you can, you should always try…
