Brownie & Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream

Hey, guys!

It’s been awhile since my last post unfortunately!

While I was busy excitedly prepping for Ice Cream Day, I ended up eating out one night and got a seriously terrible case of food poisoning which had me in bed for a couple days with not much time to recover as a family wedding started just a mere three days later.

A complete bummer as I had been planning and testing a whole bunch of recipes weeks in advance!

And, well, it’s an Indian wedding, so you know how those go.. Days on end of different celebrations, with the actual wedding ceremony taking place on the second last/last day!

So I’m on day three of the first wedding of this month, still incredibly weak and my stomach still queasy,  and I gotta skedaddle and get ready for tonight in just a couple hours!

I do, however, enjoy getting ready for weddings immensely! Continue reading “Brownie & Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream”

Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes

 

I know I’m a couple days late for the Mother’s Day post, but if you continue reading down below (below the fold for us journalists!), you will see I had it all typed out and just got to editing my photos a little late. I was travelling Sunday, which happened to be International Hummus Day, aka one of my top favorite days/dishes ever, and wasn’t able to post that either. Which is hilarious in a I-can’t-believe-this-but-so-expected-it way, as I have had the recipe and photos ready for a couple days. I mean I am so completely OCD about every little detail especially when it comes to cooking/baking and writing  that I don’t understand how I drop the ball some days. My tune this week is all about being laaa-aate. Thank God I’ve got travel to blame and not laziness!

So.

These pancakes?

Delish!

Not just for Mother’s Day, but everyday! It is perfect for I-Love-You Saturdays and Just-Because Sundays. It’s a super indulgent breakfast that’s great for any celebrations because the flavour is so widely loved. So fun to even prepare the batter with kids on a weekend morning.


HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

I spent the last couple weeks at my parents but as my luck would have it, flew out today on Mother’s Day! Since every day should be a cause of celebration of the incredible woman who brought us into this world, raised and guided us, wiped away our tears and has the strongest shoulders to lean on, I made my momma these delicious pancakes a day before!

Incredibly Moist Black Forest Cupcakes

Hey guys! How’s it going? Hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend!

Easter has very special memories for me. While I was growing up in Canada, whenever my mom came to pick us kids up from school, she’d have one of those yellow bags of Cadbury Easter Egg chocolates for us to share on our walk home. I’m always reminded of that this time of the year.

Fluffy Belgian Chocolate Waffles for One

There is nothing like sitting down to a plate of warm waffles on a weekend morning.

Breakfast is one meal I do not skimp out on. Waffles, pancakes, crepes, toast, cereal- all more or less contain carbs, are sweet and don’t exactly fit into the healthy criteria.

Unless, of course, we’re having a slice of whole grain bread, toasted with avocados or unsweetened natural peanut butter, paired with fresh fruit and yoghurt- which I also find delicious mind you! That’s a few steps closer to healthy.  Continue reading “Fluffy Belgian Chocolate Waffles for One”

Moist Sugar Free Banana Bread

At the start of the year, the time when many a resolution is made, I promised more healthy recipes making an appearance on the blog. Not only to make it easier for myself to stick to my resolution and maintain a healthier lifestyle, but to make delicious, healthy recipes that are as sinful as their unhealthy counterparts.

When you switch to a healthier way of eating, it doesn’t just have to be days on end of salads and soups and depriving yourself of all your favorite desserts. This Banana Bread is absolutely delicious and sugar free and proof that you can be healthy and eat desserts without much guilt!
