Homemade Granola Bars

Homemade Granola Bars

These homemade granola bars are my all time favourite snack on the go. They combine oats and rice crispy cereal for the base, and the honey, maple syrup and chocolate chips make then chewy and sweet!

Strawberry Muffins – Baking with Kids

Strawberries, they are one of those berries that I love just as they are, or in a dish with a little cream and maple syrup (yes, that is a real treat!).

Harvest Time - What to do with all the Zucchini?

It's that time of year! Harvest season is upon us and our gardens are overflowing with various veggies and fruit. My in-laws gifted me some zucchini, really big zucchini.

So, I went to my blogging friends and my Facebook page and asked what others are doing. Below is a long and varied list of how you can use this vegetable to bake, pickle, freeze and more.
