2 Ingredient Ice Cream, Make It Monday

Me being an ice cream addict and someone who spends far too much time in the kitchen finally gave into the ice cream recipe that is sweeping across Facebook, Pinterest, and every other form of social media out there. I’m always hesitant about miracle recipes that promise the world (and the food) in the easiest of ways but I figured that at the very most, I’m out $8 and a few hours. So, with the allure of ice cream I set off…

Kitchen Time Savers- Make It Monday

We all have busy lives and take more shortcuts than we would like, particularly in the kitchen. Of course it’s easier to simply stop at the grocery store on the way home or run to Starbucks instead of making things yourself, but with a bit of practice and creativity, you can save yourself time and work when you really need to! These are time savers that have actually worked for me and I use- sometimes Pinterest hacks aren’t quite as easy or successful as they would make it seem… These four suggestions are easy and fast, and don’t require any speciality equipment or skills!

Funfetti Sugar Cookies, Make-It-Monday

 

If there is a person out there who doesn’t like funfetti cookies, I don’t think that I want to meet them. These cookies are a lot of fun to make and a lot of fun to eat- they would be perfect for any sort of party or potluck, or quite frankly even just to eat whenever it strikes your fancy. I was in the mood for baking because it’s been incredibly grey and rainy as of late in Winnipeg and I just wanted something warm! Just a heads up, these are not made from a cake mix like most funfetti style cookies but rather completely from scratch. Now to the fun part!

This couldn’t be an easier recipe and it can be thrown together in less than 5 minutes- this ice box cake is the perfect summer recipe!

Snapshot Saturday, 17 June 2017

Snapshot Saturday, the day where you get to see the things that I see! I like to share the little things because that is what makes us who we are and what makes the world go around. I’m also guessing (and hoping) that you are reading this blog because you have at least a tiny bit of interest in what I’m up, and want to share what you’re up to, too. This week is all about summer!

Make It Monday- Sugar Cookies, Take 2

As you will know from my Snapshot Saturday post last week, I recently purchased the most wonderful cookie cutters from The Gingerbread Cutter Company on Etsy! I still love them, they make a very clean cut and they are easy on your hands- metal cutters will often get harder to use when you are making double and triple batches, but the plastic eliminates that issue. Linda was kind enough to also provide recipes with the cookie cutters, so I decided to give the sugar cookie recipe a try!

Tools of the Trade, Make It Monday

After my cookie cutters arrived on Friday and I knew that I would be testing out the cutters (and one of the recipes that came with them), it started a train of thought through all of my various cookie cutters. I find baking quite peaceful and calming, and I think that this is the perfect time of year to give out some spring and Easter baking! I do have more cookie cutters than just these- this isn’t including any of the Christmas cookie cutters, I have more of those than most people should…- but these are some of my favourites, and for different reasons.

Snapshot Saturday, 25 March 2017

So, the last few months have been really hard on me. I’ve been incredibly stressed out from a few different areas and it has taken it’s toll on me, mentally and physically. That’s pretty hard for me to admit and I can’t say that coping will be easy. However, I’ve been trying to practice some self care and do things that make me happy. And what has made me happy this week?  Continue reading

Soft Pretzels, Make It Monday

After my cinnamon bun post, I’ve been musing on what I can do with my remaining yeast packets! It doesn’t need to be used right away but I do find that if I let them go too long, I forget we have them and either buy new packets or end up staring at an expired yeast packet. So, I decided to go with soft pretzel bites- while a full pretzel will hit you a little hard on the calorie/carb side (I’m trying my best to stay healthy), this little guys will satisfy your pretzel craving while not being too much on the health side!

Make It Monday- Cinnamon Buns

You don’t know this, but my family tends to get a little obsessed with cinnamon buns. There used to be a bakery in Gimli that had these huge, delicious cinnamon buns that we would get every single weekend at the lake, and bring some home to freeze. Fast forward to roughly 2010, and the bakery closed. *cue weeping and uncontrollable shaking from cinnamon bun withdrawal* We have since found another bakery on the way to the lake that makes the same old fantastic cinnamon buns, but in the meantime, I’ve discovered that I kind of like making them myself. And I do!
