My Own Birthday Cake

It’s my birthday!! Well actually my birthday was earlier this week but this is my celebratory post! Does anyone else like to bake their own birthday cake, or is it just me? I just love to cook/bake so it makes sense that I would make my cake (and eat it) too. Plus, since I started…

Homemade Almond Joys

Have you ever tried making a homemade version of a candy bar? This was a first time for me! I picked Almond Joys which is made of a sweetened coconut mixture and whole almonds, covered in melted chocolate. They are very similar to Mounds, but those do not have almonds. I chose almond joy because…

Birthday Cake Oatmeal

If you’ve been here a while, you may have heard me mention that I started my own cookie business called Lindsay Bakes. I currently have 7 flavours available, one of them being Confetti, which is packed with colourful sprinkles. It is in my top 3 favourite flavours. That got me thinking, why are sprinkles only…

Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

So a few weeks ago I made PB & J cookies which were delicious – nothing better than peanut butter, banana and jam together. This recipe today is actually from the same person (@nataliesnaturalfood on Instagram). These are blueberry oatmeal bars (link here). There are only a few ingredients in these bars, the main one…

Sweet Potato Muffins

It’s Friday! We’ve made it to the weekend. It’s time to relax and take it easy. Why not do a little baking. How about some muffins? I made these sweet potato muffins, recipe from Feel Good Foodie (link here). I’ve made all kinds of muffins before with a variety of fresh ingredients like apples, bananas…

Puppy Chow

I know I’ve posted a few sweets in the past couple of weeks but I see nothing wrong with that. Who doesn’t like sweets! I’m loving how easy all the dessert recipes have been as well! This week’s Monday recipe from Thug Kitchen 101 is Puppy Chow. I’ve heard of this treat before but never…

PB & J Cookies

Last week I made that delicious peanut butter dip (click here to see that) and here I am again with another nutty recipe. I love peanut butter so much, I could eat it every day without getting sick of it. Today I have made these adorable jam cookies! I saw this recipe on instagram (link…

Hot Chocolate

It’s March which means winter is technically coming to an end very soon. But until the weather gets warmer, I will still drink lots of hot beverages. In the winter, when I want a hot drink, I will usually make myself some tea. So that’s what I will choose about 90% of the time. But…

Jam Rolls

This was more of an unplanned post but I had to share it here. So in my last post, I made challah (link here). It was great and delicious and everything I hoped for. But I had quite a bit of dough to use up and I wanted to make something sweet. At first I…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Hearts

I love peanut butter cups. Homemade ones of course. They’re so much better than the packaged ones you get, usually at Halloween time. Making them yourself is also way healthier because there are no preservatives or weird chemicals. I posted a peanut butter cup recipe almost 4 years ago (wow can’t believe I’ve been blogging…
