Gingerbread blondies comin’ your way this week!🎄❄️☃️
A standing rib roast is probably my favourite holiday dinner. Succulent and juicy. Sharing this totally do-able recipe for one with a delicious herb crust. Also a recipe for mostly make-ahead crispy smashed potatoes (you boil them, then smash them and bake in a hot oven until crispy and golden on the outside, but still creamy on the inside - YUM). The effort is done before your guests arrive so you can relax and enjoy a glass of wine together. In partnership with @sterlingsilverpremiummeats #sponsored
A balanced diet. That means a truffle in each hand, right? 🤗 (recipe link in bio)
I realized as I was blogging our trip to Maui yesterday that I didn't share the recipes I posted while we were away! Like, for instance, these coconut and chocolate oatmeal cookies (link in bio). I love toasty coconut and oats together, they combine to something greater than the sum of its parts. Now what holiday baking recipe do you want next, gingerbread blondies or peppermint whoopie pies?!? 😬
Just shared a new blog post! On our recent trip to Maui with 7 kids 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👦‍👦👶, the parenting anxieties no one warns you about, Mai Tais, pools, beaches and family fun. I overheard a mom say “travelling with toddlers is not vacation, it’s relocation”. I LOLed hard. Do you think it’s true?
Pumpkin pancakes with apples in spiced honey caramel! See, what's happening here is that I'm pretending to be fancy when really the pancakes have been in my freezer for a month and the topping is just apples and a cinnamon stick simmered in butter and honey until soft. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Actually, orange squeezy - because I also wanted to share that I've teamed up with @tropicana_ca again (remember Christmas Sangria? Linked in bio. Pumpkin-Orange Muffins??) and you can expect to see some delicious, bright and citrusy recipes soon! What are your easiest holiday brunch recipes? #TropicanaCanada #TropicanaPartner
In case you (like me) start thinking about Sunday breakfast as soon as you’re finished Saturday dinner, may I suggest these ultra-tender Apple Spice Muffins? 🍎 Freeze the leftovers to enjoy all week. Recipe link in bio & story.
These chocolate truffle​s (new recipe - link in bio 🎄) have​ infinite adaptability​ and just 3 base ingredients​.​ At first bite, they’re cool and firm. Then with the warmth of the tongue, they collapse into silky, melty bliss.​ ​I rolled some in cocoa and some in pretty pink crushed @GanongBros Chicken Bones - the most nostalgic candy of my New Brunswick Christmases. What would you roll yours in?​​ #ganongpartner⠀
I posted this pressure cooker chicken chili recipe on the blog (link in bio 👆🏻) while we were in Hawaii a week ago. We use our pressure cooker constantly for weeknight meals, do you guys use one? Wondering if it’s worth sharing more recipes??
If there’s zucchini in it it’s healthy, yes? 🥒 🍫
Avoiding the shopping chaos and having a cozy, mostly indoor weekend with Elf & The Holiday (my 2 favs!) and a steaming pot of soup, how about you? New blog post (link in bio) with this delicious Cream of Broccoli Soup topped with crispy roasted broccoli, that I made before our trip to Hawaii + motherhood thoughts on the simplest way to achieve household peace and happiness.

Nut-Crusted Cranberry Tart (my autocorrect changed that to “butt-crusted” three times 🤣) Recipe link in bio. Happy #thanksgiving, ‘merican friends! #f52pie
