#throwbackthursday: Honey Ginger Smoothie

I have a soft spot for ginger cookies. So I’m sharing a version of the classic ginger cookie today: my Honey Ginger Smoothie. Sometimes my baking memories are kind of blurry. I’ve mentioned on this blog before that I used to think that my mom and I made strawberry whole wheat muffins all the time…

Christmas Smoothie

Do you drink smoothies in the winter? You will want to make this Christmas Smoothie. It’s sweet, creamy and the perfect winter breakfast. We’ve officially got 20 days until Christmas, which is just so exciting. Like a lot of people, this is my favourite time of year. I love the decorations, the general feeling of joy in

#throwbackthursday: Clementine Cake

My grandma is an amazing baker. This Clementine Cake is dedicated to her. When I was a kid, my parents and I would always make the 2 and 1/2 hour (or 3 hours with traffic) drive to visit my grandparents. We always had tons of fun, cooking and talking and laughing together. And most visits, my

#throwbackthursday: Soft Almond Raspberry Cookies

Pink has always been my favourite colour. When I was a kid, I remember the day my old favourite colour (yellow all the way!) crossed over into pink. I was at this amazing nursery school that I went to called The McGill Club that has since closed down. What stands out in my memory the most,

They can be super sweet or more savoury. They feel less indulgent than chocolate chip cookies, even though

#throwbackthursday: Chocolate Mint Smoothie

What’s your favourite ice cream flavour? For me, it was always mint chocolate chip. I mostly got ice cream from Baskin Robbin’s as a kid and I can still taste the sweet, creamy and minty dessert. That was before I found out that dairy and I are definitely nothing close to BFFs.     But

#throwbackthursday: Strawberry Milkshake

Who doesn’t love a good old strawberry milkshake? For some reason, I always associate this drink with McDonald’s. I can’t remember if I actually had it from there when I was a kid, but I have a strong memory of enjoying it with some chicken fingers and fries at least once. Maybe I’m remembering something that never
