No Bake Brownies

No Bake Brownies

I was inspired to make these no bake brownies because I am in need of boosting up my iron levels, and needed a fun way to do it! I basically took the idea from my walnut-date-balls and turned them into brownies.

I wanted a frosting to go with it, and I have heard of banana frosting and avocado frosting, so I experimented with both and found that I like the avocado more than the banana. I found that I wasn’t able to mask or hide the banana flavour, whereas I was able to mask the avocado. You can try it out yourself and see which you like best.

Snow Flake and S’mores Cupcakes

Found them a bit plain, so I sprinkled some blue crystal sugar over them, for a nice winter-y touch!

My daughter is having a Heritage day Party in class today, and she volunteered cupcakes! I was happy to hear that, I wasn’t really in the mood to make baklava or anything that took a lot of time or effort. I was happy about the cupcakes, because unlike making traditional foods or treats, you can be creative and design it in any way you want!  Continue reading “Snow Flake and S’mores Cupcakes” »

Golden Graham S’mores Treats

Golden Graham S'mores Treats

If you follow me on Facebook you may recall a status a few weeks ago, I mentioned my son asking me to make Rice Krispie squares for his class project. One of the comments from Cyndi mentioned to make s’mores Krispies with Golden Grahams, thank you Cyndi! Thing is I haven’t seen that cereal in a long time! It was my hubby’s favourite childhood cereal, but for some reason I thought we didn’t have any in Canada!

Mint Fudge

Mint Fudge

I was busy in the kitchen all day yesterday, roasting tomatoes, baked a sweet potato casserole, made beef and cabbage stew for dinner…with all this happening I decided to make mint fudge! I had some left over evaporated milk left from the casserole, and didn’t want it to go to waste!

How many times have I left the extra in the fridge just to forget about it, then it goes down the drain! Not this time…no no no…I used it up and made something delicious with it:) Continue reading “Mint Fudge” »

Banana Nut Muffins with Nutella

These muffins are moist and delicious! The added Nutella makes them extra special. I make them with olive oil, Omega-3 organic milk, Omega-3 organic eggs, & walnuts.  The potassium from the banana’s will give you energy, plus all that Omega will make you happy;) If you like you can add other nuts or flax seeds in the batter as well.  Continue reading “Banana Nut Muffins with Nutella” »

Walnut Date Balls

We had guests over for dinner last night, and with all the preparations  the only thing I had left to do was dessert! I made some chocolate ice cream the night before, was planning on some cake or something….but no time! I decided to make macaroons but didn’t have any oatmeal, and no time to go out and get any either! Took a glance over to the table and noticed the bowl of dates sitting there, then I remembered these stuffed dates I love so much. Continue reading “Walnut Date Balls” »
