Brown Butter Cinnamon Buns

Who doesn't love a good cinnamon bun? I had the idea to create a cinnamon bun with brown butter icing because the Sourdough Brown Butter Donuts that I make are BY FAR my most popular flavour. Browning the butter gives it such a nice, deep flavour that really gives these cinnamon buns a unique twist. This recipe is easy to make and is approachable for the baker AND the non-baker. …

Homemade (EASY) Cashew Milk

Have you every tried making nut milk from home?  Have you thought "It's way to hard! I'll just buy it".  Yeah - me too! Until one day I looked up how to make it and I tried it and it was so incredibly simple, fast, and easy I said I would never buy it again.  (but I'm also weird like that!) Cashew milk is by far the easiest to make because it doesn't require any straining out the nut "pulp".  When you make …

6 Tips For Kids Helping in the Kitchen!

My oldest son Micah is 4 and has been helping me in the kitchen ever since he could stand up on a chair and could communicate with me a little bit. It first started when I would have the hardest time killing the 2 hours after nap time and before Mark came home from work at 5:00 pm. To help the time pass a little quicker, I would often get Micah to help me make something in the kitchen and it became …

Chocolate Oat Energy Bites

No-bake, EASY, and healthy Energy Bites!  You can use one bowl and whip these up in minutes.  This recipe is kid friendly and super fun for them to help you make in the kitchen. I have been making energy bites for years and years but usually used nuts as a base and it required using a food processor. I decided to create a new energy bite recipe using oats as the base instead of nuts and made …

Cranberry White Chocolate Bars

I highly recommend you make this recipe because it is PERFECT for the holidays!  (Actually, make it any time of the year… it’s that good.) I have been making this recipe every year for 8 Christmas’s and it’s always a crowd favourite.  I just made it last week to nail down the recipe and my husband Mark even said, “KATIE - I forgot how good this recipe is.” Why thank you, Mark. I posted a quick …

What I Love – “Welo”

I don’t know about you, but I am ALWAYS looking for quick and easy snacks I feel good about feeding my family.  I am a weirdo and LOVE making a lot of the food we eat at home from scratch because then I know exactly what ingredients are going into the food!  This year after adding another baby to the family and running my business from home…my extra spare time to make snacks is FEW and FAR between (and I am …

Spelt Oat Peanut Butter Cookies

These are the best cookies I have ever made from my kitchen!  Not only that... THEY ARE 100% WHOLE GRAIN and you would never know. I talk about Spelt a lot around here.  It's because I really love it.  I have found over the years that I have been able to produce products that taste less "whole-wheat-y" and that don't taste as heavy as if you were just going to sub using 100% whole wheat flour.  I share a few …

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Ok - did you read the title and think, 'I can't make a Pumpkin Spice Latte at home because I don't have a fancy coffee machine."  Then I will say to you "You're wrong!".  You can most definitely make one at home and it's going to be EASY and taste amazing. You might also be thinking, "Why wouldn't I just go buy one from the coffee shop?" and my answer to that is "Go for it."  If you want to go to the …

Pumpkin Pie – with Coconut/Pecan Crust

Fall is by far the favourite season of the year around our house.  Both Mark and I love fall so much we decided to get married in October, we couldn't think of a better month. Unfortunately the year we got married, there was a blizzard the day before our wedding.  Our out of town guests almost didn't make it to town for our wedding. We never planned a back up for getting our pictures taken and it was FREEZING …

Spelt Banana Bread

I don't think I've ever met someone who doesn't like banana bread! I think it's the nostalgia factor for most people. It is one of my 4 year olds favourite snacks and we love making it together because it is EASY and he can be my hands on help. But really... I think Micah loves helping me because he always sneaks some chocolate chips. We usually double or triple this recipe and cut up the extra loaves and …

Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

I created this Frozen Peanut Butter pie when I happened to be on a really restrictive diet for a year a few years back. I learned to be really creative and realized that I could still make really amazing desserts even without using certain food groups. The best part about this pie is that it requires no baking, and even though it's a healthier dessert, no can ever tell! …
