Perfectly Plain Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

No flour, no butter, no mixer. Lots of peanut butter and some chocolate. Sometimes you see a recipe and just have to drop everything and make it immediately. These 5-ingredient peanut butter cookies are one of those recipes. So today, in anticipation of you also needing to drop everything to make these, I will save […]

Mom’s Recipes: Meringue Nests with Lemon Cream and Mixed Berries

Meringue Nest with Lemon Cream and Fresh Berries

A lot of people ask me, “how do you do it?”, and I’m never sure how to respond. Do what? When? Probably the best answer is not very well, and with a lot of help. No one can do it all, and my recipe testing has fallen far off to the wayside this past couple […]

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip

Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Dip - two ingredients, 5 minutes!

I don’t have enough appies in my life.  This must mean I don’t have enough parties in my life, because parties are half about company and three-quarters about appies. Appy math. It’s official stuff. In the interest of having more appies in my regular non-partying schedule, I need some easy recipes up my sleeve that don’t […]

Marshmallow Pops

Remember that amazing surprise party we talked about on Monday? Well, I was happy to be left with the extra toppings from the apple fondue bar and couldn’t wait to put them to good use!For Theo’s birthday, since Carl was gone and vanilla cupcakes are my weakness, I decided to forego the cake and let […]

Homemade Caramel Corn

It’s funny how you can be married to someone for quite awhile and not really know them. Carl and I have had a couple informative conversations lately. You’d think my lack of athleticism or our significant height differential would throw him off more, but no, it’s really just my taste in food. Me: I just love […]

Regional Canadian Food: Cranberry Raspberry Mousse

Light and fruity Cranberry Raspberry Mousse

It’s time for another instalment in the Canadian Food Experience Project!  We’ve talked about regional foods before, but every region has more than one food it can call it’s own.  While I wrote about raspberries last time, coming from British Columbia I couldn’t help but feature berries again.  British Columbia is home to so much […]

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

Baked Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal | www.hiddenponies.com

Guys, I feel like you’ve been holding out on me.  Why has no one been shoving baked oatmeal recipes into my hands, insisting I add it to my breakfast routine regardless of childhood oatmeal trauma?  Baked oatmeal is the bomb, and that’s not something I say, like….ever. I love the endless possible flavour variations once […]

Saturday Sweets: Granola Bars

Do you have a food that you just like best store bought?  A packaged-good-weakness you never plan to give up? I have a couple. 1) Oreos.  Mind you, I haven’t tried these homemade Oreos yet…I’ll report back. 2) Wheat Thins.  Although I think I could challenge that with this recipe, but I know I won’t […]

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bars

No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Oat Bars

Recipe naming really isn’t my forte, as you can see from that unwieldy title. Eating is my forte. I’m ok with this. These chocolatey, peanut buttery squares happened because: a) it was too hot to bake b) I was out of butter anyways c) I had overbought peanut butter and needed to deal with it, […]
