Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

So yes, it’s almost Christmas, and I love all things Christmas and all things Christmas baking, but I  have nothing new and Christmassy to share with you today because this year I’m sticking to all the recipes I’ve already posted because they work, they’re nostalgic, and they’re amazing :) Instead, the experimenting is happening at breakfast time. We […]

Ricardo’s Chocolate Crepes

A recent girls’ weekend in Whistler, BC saw us searching the streets in the torrential rain at 11:00 am, having just checked out of our hotel, determined to find delicious crepes before embarking on a day of shopping.

Perfect Chocolate Chip Muffins

Chocolate Chip Muffins

I need a break from the upset, angry, rude, confusing, silly, and sometimes downright hateful comments filling too many abortion “discussion” feeds.  Sometimes it’s not even worth engaging, is it? Sometimes you just a cup of […]

Reese’s Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Is it possible for your own baby to give you baby fever? Well, I guess that’s a rhetorical question, because the answer is yes, yes it is.  My littlest has always been amazing, but he has lately gotten even better as he’s turned into a snuggler. I think the over-the-top positive reinforcement when it happened […]
