Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal


Am I oatmeal crazy? Because in my opinion, that may just be the best kind of crazy.

Now before you all go oatmeal bashing, I think that you shouldn't judge this plain Jane breakfast until you have tried it baked.

Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake

Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake


What do you think is a good excuse to be making cake? Birthdays? Anniversaries? ...Tuesday afternoons?

Because I have made a cake on each one of those occasions. To be more specific, I have made this exact ice cream cake on all of those occasions. I think I have found my new favorite dessert.

Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie


The worst thing about my "good intentions" of buying spinach is the fact that after one salad, I forget about the remaining spinach in the fridge until it goes limp and slimy. Please tell me that it's not only me.

But with this smoothie, I think I can say goodbye to my slimy spinach problem, and hello to some good-for-you smoothies. Also, any recipe that can use up my one ripe banana is a winner for me. Am I right guys? Bon appetit!

Orange Muffins

Orange Muffins


Do these muffins sound boring? Because trust me. These are so good, you won't need to add chocolate, coconut, avocado or anything else you can think of. But I won't judge you if you do.

However, I warn you not to judge these muffins by their appearance. A good life lesson all around. But even more so in this case.

Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies

Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies


I have been ogling the sweet, sweet Biscoff treats of every other food blogger ever, and have been cursing the stores in Canada for not selling it.

But then, I went to Hawaii in August, and found Biscoff spread everywhere. Well, there they were, and I would never forgive myself if I didn't pack my suitcase with some jars to take back home with me.

Banana Bread

Banana Bread


Why is it that whenever I buy bananas, a lot of them end up getting over ripe?

Not that this is a problem or anything. And I'm sure my unexplained compulsion to bag two bunches of bananas every time I go to the grocery store doesn't help matters one bit. But I usually end up with maybe one or two ripe bananas, which I then use for this oatmeal (<-- seriously, every time!)

But now that I have not one or two but three ripe bananas? It's banana bread making time, baby!

30 Minute Creamy Vegetable Soup

30 Minute Creamy Vegetable Soup


Check this out! It's not a dessert recipe!!

Maybe I shouldn't be eating dessert to build up insulation against the cold. I should be fighting the cold weather with soup.
