Cherry Coconut Overnight Oats

Cherry coconut overnight oats. Easy, creamy, nutritious and filled with all my favorite flavors. As I’m writing this, I’m sitting in our living room, darkened from the clouds and smoke outside. It’s 8:30 am outside, yet it still looks like 5 am. Today marks one week since the smoke invaded the Okanagan and there’s no sign of it going away any time soon. I’m sitting on our couch, the windows opened, deciding that the (finally) cold air from outside is worth the smell of smoke for one morning. The temperatures dropped to the low twenties this weekend after weeks of 30s and 40s. Our apartment has been closed up all week due to that heat and smoke, so I’m choosing to let the cool air come in…

Sugar-Free Cherry Chia Jam

Sugar-free cherry chia jam. Because what else was I to make with 20lbs of fresh Okanagan cherries? Yesterday, I asked you guys on Instagram which recipe you wanted to see on the blog today and this is what you chose. Cherry chia jam over pasta salad. Ask and you shall receive. So as you requested, I’m sharing my favorite cherry chia jam this Friday. This is recipe 2 of my cherry series (there’s no such thing, but there probably should be at the rate at which I’m using cherries at the moment). Nevertheless, I shared this cherry yogurt tart last week, now this cherry jam and you can expect one more cherry recipe before the end of summer. I can’t help it, cherries are my absolute favorite… The reason behind…

No-Bake Cherry Yogurt Tart

Ending the week with a delicious no-bake cherry yogurt tart. My parents are actually in Vernon for the weekend. They drove all the way from New Brunswick to British Columbia to bring Shaun’s car (plus they got to enjoy a trip across Canada, just like we did!) and I must say, it’s nice to see familiar faces in Vernon. Moving to a new city can feel lonely at times, despite being introverted and enjoying being alone most of the time. Going to work at the hospital 4 days a week is more than enough socialization for me… Hah! Plus I have Shaun to keep me company and we get to explore British Columbia together, which is more than I could ask for. It doesn’t stop me from missing my friends and family though. So…

Banana Oatmeal Blender Pancakes with Berry Compote

Banana oatmeal blender pancakes with berry compote. Surprisingly, these are the first pancakes I’m sharing on the blog. Not that I’ve been blogging for very long, but I somehow made it over a year and a half without sharing a pancake recipe. Believe me, these were worth the wait! Honestly, I’m not much of a pancakes for breakfast kind of person. I have a rotation of 3 different breakfasts that I eat week after week and rarely do I crave something different. Yes, I basically wake up every morning craving oatmeal or toast. However, sometimes I do change things up, usually when it’s a special occasion. It may not be because I want a change, but mostly because I feel a change would be appropriate for special occasions. For example, I would…

No-Knead Whole Wheat Seeded Bread

No-knead whole wheat seeded bread… The perfect recipe to make this snowy weekend. Yes, we just got another snow storm. The third one in 3 weeks and somehow they all fell on a Thursday. I’m just hoping this is the last of it – I can’t wait for the spring weather to finally arrive! For now though, I’ll just keep spending my weekends inside, staying cozy and baking. Maybe going for a hike in the snow. If your weekend is just as snowy (or maybe rainy), you need to make this bread. Not that you need an excuse to make fresh bread. Seriously though, if you’re scared of making homemade bread, this is the recipe for you. Honestly, I made homemade bread for the very first time last January. Before then, I…
