One of my favourite things to do around the holiday season is to make cookies! While my parents are partial to my peppermint chocolate chip cookies, my absolute favourite Christmas cookies has always been cut-out cookies.
I’ll be honest – I’ve never been one to eat enough fruits and (especially) vegetables in a day, so I love smoothies for this reason. Smoothies are such a great way to incorporate some more fruit and veggies into your diet, without it feeling like a chore.
My rule of thumb when I’m making mixed smoothies is that you should be using more vegetables than fruit. I like to use just plain water in my smoothies too so that it doesn’t get too sugary, (I’m not a fan of coconut water personally), but I’ll still put int a little bit of juice for taste.
I don’t know about you guys, but hot chocolate is kind of a staple in my house during the Holidays. I’ve seen some recipes like hot chocolate cookies, brownies cake, etc. before and one day I woke up craving hot chocolate and pancakes so I thought, hey why not!
I’ve been pretty absent from here lately, but I’m back! I’m in my final year of my program, and since my program is a condensed/accelerated one I’m definitely feeling the heat. When I do have some spare time, I have been spending it with Matt, my family, pups and baking of course!
Pumpkin is definitely one of my favourite flavours of fall. I love it all; pumpkin pie, lattes, ice cream, grilled pumpkin, you name it! Another one of my favourite treats has always been banana bread, so I decided to try and combine the two! The results: Ah-mazing.
