Only 4 sleeps until Christmas!
We’ve had our first light dusting of snow here, and everything looks so festive and lovely! There’s a bit more snow in the forecast and I have my fingers crossed tightly so we might have a white Christmas!
I’ve finished work for the year and now can really focus on soaking up the holidays, spend time with family, and read a few books. There’s really nothing better than lazy days spent relaxing by the Christmas tree, listening to my favourite Dean Martin carols.
If you’re still in need of a sweet addition to your Christmas brunch menu – or to your holiday dessert table – this Spiced Pear Crumble Cake would be welcome!
I’m hanging on by my fingernails to the last day of summer.
Tomorrow it’s officially Fall, you guys, OMG! Before this blog turns into all things cinnamon and apples and pumpkin, I’ve got one last end-of-summer recipe: Baked Peaches and Cream Oatmeal.
Baked Peaches and Cream Oatmeal is great for these last days of summer where the mornings are crisp but the afternoons turn warm and sunny.
Last night I woke up shivering under my covers, because the window in my bedroom was open all night and there was a very, very cooooool breeze blowing in. I rummaged under my bed for my long-forgotten slippers, awkwardly stuffed my feet into them, and swiftly closed the window.
No more leaving windows open all night, or even all day.
Last week I waxed on about the perfect pairing of peanut butter and banana. Now let’s obsess about peanut butter’s other match made in heaven: JAM.
Peanut butter and jam is a classic pairing. PB&J sandwiches have been stuffed into kids lunch boxes since the beginning of time. It’s one of those classic combinations that is the perfect combination of sweet, salty, creamy, with a hint of peanutty crunch, and is just overall YUMS.
Peanut butter and jam isn’t just a great sandwich – it makes a fun oatmeal! Like eating a sandwich with a spoon! …Is that weird?
