Cookie Dough Snack Balls

Cookie Dough Snack Balls

A few months ago I told you about one of our new favorite snacks – these Fudgy Snack Balls – which continue to be a staple in our rotation.  The concept is really flexible, though, with variations on this date/nut ball theme all over the internet.  So in the spirit of experimentation, I decided toRead More

Maple Cinnamon Waffles (Grain-free!)

Maple Cinnamon Waffles (Grain-free!)

We are a big fan of whole grains in our house.  For the last several years, I have been cooking pretty much exclusively with whole grains, with great results.  And while I firmly believe in their healthfulness, and try to branch out to grains like brown rice, millet, and barley, every once in a whileRead More

Fudgy Snack Balls

I have to confess, I’ve been holding out on you.  I first discovered this recipe last summer, and even though it was HUGELY successful I haven’t gotten around to sharing until now!  For that, I apologize, but hopefully once you go and make these you will forgive me. My girls both seem to have inheritedRead More

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread/Muffins (Whole Wheat)

People like to talk about seasonal food, but with modern transportation and grocery stores, it’s sometimes easy to forget that most of us do not live in an area where a wide variety of produce grows year-round.  And yet even though you can pretty much always get things like lettuce, carrots, bananas, and apples, inRead MoreRead More

Granola

If you’re going to make yogurt at home, doesn’t it follow that you need to make granola to go with it?  Well, maybe not, but there are a lot of good reasons to make your own granola.  You come out way ahead cost wise, but in my opinion the most important one is that youRead More

In my post on Coconut Granola Bars, I mentioned that I’ve been looking for the perfect bar recipe for ages with very little success.  Well, in a stroke of really good luck, it seems like I’ve found two great recipes in just a few short weeks!  One of the blogs I follow is called EnlightenedRead More

Coconut Granola Bars

Coconut Granola Bars

Most of you are probably unaware, but I have been obsessively making various kinds of granola and protein bars for months. I have a serious addiction to NuGo Organic Double Dark Chocolate protein bars, which I have been trying to break for ages. Not only are they expensive and loaded with sugar, but I hateRead More

Candied Walnuts

Candied Walnuts

—This post is part of my Canadian Thanksgiving series— When planning my menu, I looked at many ideas for appetizer soups involving pumpkin or other winter squash, but when I looked at all of the other dishes I had planned, they just seemed like too much food.  Plus, carrying bowls of hot soup around aRead More

Thanksgiving in October!

So be honest, how many of you out there know that Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving about 6 weeks before we do in the US?  I’m not sure I would have ever learned this tidbit if I hadn’t married a Canadian, but interestingly enough Canadian Thanksgiving coincides with our Columbus day, which means we all have aRead More

Carrot Zucchini Muffins

Carrot Zucchini Muffins

Well, I’m sad to report that my recent Whole Wheat Zucchini Muffins, which I said may be perfect, are not – while I still stand by the deliciousness and healthfulness claims, they have the fatal flaw of being completely rejected by the munchkin.  And while hubby thought it was good news that there would beRead More
