Healthy Winter Buddha Bowl

I finally made something other than desserts and baked goods! Since my mom usually makes dinner every night, I never make dinner, but this time, my parents were out and I had to prepare dinner myself. I have been longing to make a Buddha bowl in, like, forever, so that’s exactly what I did.

It might not look like the best dinner ever, but it certainly tasted like it. And it took me under 30 minutes to make, so I call this a successful meal.

Who knew Buddha bowls could bring so much joy to the eater? And I think the cold winter weather (it was snowing here!) might have made me appreciate a warm bowl of yummy veggies even more.Read More »


Crispy Sweet Apple Chips

You know those apple chips that you can buy at the store? The bag you buy when you feel really guilty looking at all those delicious salty chips in all different sizes and flavours? Well you can make it way cheaper at home by just using apples and a slicer/really good knife skills! We first made these a few years ago but it took so much time and sweat using a vintage mandolin slicer, as we had to move the apple back and forth across the blade to create thin slices of apples. Which was even harder to do in the summer heat. And the end result was tiny shriveled apple chips, that although tasted really good, disappeared too quickly for all that effort.

So we didn’t make them again until now. My mom decided, after buying a few expensive bags of apple chips, that it was time to attempt making apple chips again, but this time not with the vintage mandolin slicer. Read More »

Raspberry and Blueberry Chia Pops

Ahhhhh! I am so in love with this. The sweetness of berries and maple syrup with coconut milk and chia seeds all rolled into one popsicle. Then drizzled with melted dark chocolate and coconut flakes and more chia seeds. These pops are a definite yum in my book.

I found these cute little blue popsicles molds in the bottom of a containers drawer and they had little green bear sticks attached to them. I remember my mom using them every once in a while when we were younger and we would always jump up and down in excitement when she took them out of that drawer. My mom stopped making sweet things a while ago, giving us the task instead and we totally forgot about these popsicle molds.Read More »
