Protein Powered Oatmeal Berry Bowl

I am so happy that my kids love oatmeal.  I have been inspired to create oatmeal bowls that are pretty but when the kids see it, they want to gobble it down instead of me taking pictures. Recently Genuine Health sent me their Chocolate fermented vegan protein powder and it is one of my favourite way to fuel post work out but I also like adding them to…

Hot Artichoke Dip

Can you tell I am on a roll when it comes to snacking with homemade dips?

Birreria Volo offers food…

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Bars

Have you ever had Peanut Butter Marshmallow Bars?  They are the best treat that gives you salty and sugar deliciousness in one simple bar.  I haven’t had this bar in well over 30 years.  Back in the 80’s this was the one treat I’d find at every holiday party and birthday party.   Only multicoloured marshmallow was used more often than…
