I‘m kind of obsessed with appetizers. I mean…I’d be fine with replacing a meal with a bunch of finger foods any day of the week. Maybe it’s because of the variety of flavours and number of options to choose from…I’m not quite sure. Maybe it ties into the fact that I’ve always loved eating a bit of everything.
Food & Drink
My mom and I went on a holiday home tour several weeks ago and at one of the homes, they were serving Mulled Wine. I had never tried Mulled Wine before, and clearly I had been missing out! Mulled Wine has quickly turned into one of my favourite warm holiday drinks. It has all the wintery ‘feels’ with flavours (and scents) of citrus, cinnamon, maple, and pomegranate. You’ll love whipping a batch of this up just for the aroma alone; it’s heavenly!
When the holiday season arrives, I begin craving all of the flavours that are in this loaf. Cranberry and orange are the perfect wintery combo, and can we just talk about the smell from the oven?! You don’t need to be burning a candle when you’re baking this loaf, that’s for sure! The aroma is amazing!! This loaf is definitely more of a ‘dessert’ or ‘sweet bread’. Typically when I’m baking for the family, we limit the sugars and use replacements that are healthier options.
If you’re craving the flavours of Fall, then you need to try these pancakes! They are delicious with the yummy taste of pumpkin spice; perfect for a cozy Sunday morning! These pancakes are super fluffy and don’t taste healthy, if you know what I mean. Nick is a little bit of a pancake snob and prefers his simple, all purpose flour ones. I on the other hand, want to try and sneak in any bit of fibre I can when I’m feeding the girls. These pancakes satisfy everyones needs which is a win at our house.
Happy Monday, guys! Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Canadian friends! I woke up this morning still stuffed from the huge turkey dinner we had yesterday. It was so delicious, but now I’m totally craving a simple and healthy meal for tonight’s dinner…and I have a feeling I’ll be making this soup again later on! Two weeks ago I was cooking up this Sweet Potato Soup when I realized that I hadn’t thought about sharing this recipe on my blog!
