Mocha Pecan Crunch Nice Cream

Mocha Pecan Crunch Nice Cream

I really should be packing right now, because when you are reading this, we are probably on the way to Saskatoon – a 6 (to 8 hour) road trip.

Late Spring to early Summer is peak season for rhubarb! I was soo excited to see the red and green stalks available again at my grocery store. Apartment-living means we don’t have a garden ourselves.

Layered Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Layered Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Sometimes it seems like we enjoy self-torture. Last Sunday afternoon we decided to go to the mall. Of all places. On a Sunday! Not an ingenious idea, since every other family in Calgary seemed to have had the same thought. In our defense, Konrad has an erratic work schedule, which often leaves Sunday as the…

Slow Cooked Chicken Broth

I never thought I would be one of those people but I actually started making my own chicken broth. In the slow cooker. So it’s almost effortless. This isn’t the only kind of chicken broth I use now (I still love the jarred bouillon paste in a pinch) but for chicken noodle soup this is…

Apple Pie Granola

Apple Pie Granola

Considering that, I cannot believe I went almost 6 months without posting a new recipe for my favorite breakfast and snack food. But I am here, right now, to remedy that situation.
