Blueberry Matcha Muffins & #Giveaway

Blueberry Matcha Muffins
I love a good muffin, but usually the ones I’m drawn to may as well be a cake. So when I put together these Blueberry Matcha Muffins, I wanted to be more health conscious since we’ve been having a little more sugar than usual (heat + no AC = lots of ice cream).

Rice Krispies Treat

 

Treats For Toys is a wonderful campaign that I have been thrilled to be apart of. Not only have I learned that for every toy inspired Rice Krispie treat uploaded to their website, Kelloggs will donate $20 to The Salvation Army but I also learned that I’m not good at making 3D Rice Krispie treats.

Christmas Baking Recipes

Christmas Baking Recipes

I have an amazing group of girlfriends. Most of us have been friends since elementary school (some preschool and some longer then that), but we all live in different towns. So last year we came together and decided to start a Christmas Baking Exchange and we’re just starting year two of this new tradition. Finding baking recipes isn’t always easy,  so I asked some of my blogger friends to help me out. Here is a round up of Christmas Baking recipes sure to be a hit. Whether it’s an exchange, for your family, or for your visiting friends and neighbours.

I have never made a Rice Krispies Treat in my adult life. Well, until today that is. I never thought of doing it before, but with the Treats for Toys Holiday Program there is no better time to start.

Truvia Review

truvia

 

I’m pretty careful when it comes to choosing a zero calorie sweetener. There are so many chemical-filled messes out there, and the majority of them have some nasty side effects. It has always been a battle, do I put a zero calorie sweetener in my coffee and endure the painful headaches/stomach aches that are damaging my health or do I just bite the bullet with the calorie laden sugar? Then I tried the stevia sweetener,  Truvia, and everything changed.

Cake Decorating With MakeBake.co.uk

MakeBake.co.uk Cake decorating has evolved so much since I was a kid. From character shaped pans to 3D artwork, a lot has changed. After making my husband a Vancouver Canucks cake for Father’s Day, I learned that cake decorating is definitely not my calling – but it’s still fun!

Make Your Own Oat Flour

Homemade Oat FlourI have been doing a lot of reading on wheat/gluten products and the affects it can have on your overall health. The bloating, weight gain, intolerances and the overall damaging effects (when consumed in high amounts) scares me. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do still eat wheat products but I do so in moderation. A few recipes I have been coming across lately have been substituting wheat flour with oat flour and it peaked my interest.

Healthy Toddler Muffins

Healthy Toddler Muffins

I’m fairly cautious when it comes to what I feed Carter. I have been trying my best to stay away from chemical laden and empty caloric snacks and to feed him whole, nutritious foods. I never thought that it would actually be a challenge.  I’m having a problem with food in general when it comes to my son. He will either refuse to eat it or only have a tiny amount and not be full. It’s frustrating. When it comes to snacks: he won’t let you feed him. He only wants to feed himself – but he can’t live off of cheese and toddler snacks forever (I hate giving him those toddler snacks). I was inspired one day when I came across a muffin idea using jarred baby food from my mom. I never thought about baking with baby food. The particular recipe was loaded with butter, sugar and a lot of junk so today. Here is the recipe for Healthy Toddler Muffins.
