Berry Banana Bread

This Berry Banana Bread is kept moist with a secret ingredient and each mouthful is bursting with fresh berries. My family loves this recipe!

It’s the beginning of berry season! Oh how lovely it is to swap out my bags of frozen berries for fresh berries.

To celebrate berry season, I’ve made my favourite banana bread and stuffed it full of fresh strawberries and blueberries. This Berry Banana Bread is kept moist with my secret ingredient (pssst – sour cream!!), and each mouthful is bursting with berries.

To be fair, it’s not berry season in my backyard yet – for that, we’ve got another month or two to go – and by “backyard” I mean my potted veggie garden on my rooftop deck 😉 . It’s been an unseasonably cool Spring here in the Pacific Northwest, so my strawberry and raspberry plants only have buds so far!

Buttermilk Pancakes with Triple Berry Sauce

Buttermilk pancakes are light, fluffy, and smothered in a sticky sweet triple berry drizzle. | breakfast for dinner

Are you team pancakes or team waffles?

Normally I’m team waffles. But these buttermilk pancakes are so light, fluffy, and smothered in the sweetest sticky triple berry drizzle that I may just change my mind…

Did you know that the term “flat as a pancake” has been around since 1611? (I hope you never had that terrible phrase directed at you!) Even our stone age ancestors were eating pancakes. It’s true.

Strawberry Chia Pudding Parfait

Layers of thick Greek-style Vanilla Chia Pudding are layered with strawberry puree and topped with fresh strawberry slices.

Mason jar breakfasts may be my favourite thing. I’m always that girl at work, toting around my mason jar breakfast and my mason jar smoothie. #Basic much?

But seriously. Mason jars are so cute and fun and therefore mason jar breakfasts are in my permanent rotation. My absolute favs:

Today I’m comin ‘atcha with another mason jar breakfast: Strawberry Chia Pudding Parfait. This breakfast is similar to a yogurt and granola breakfast, but it’s dairy-free and so much healthier! Layers of thick Greek-style Vanilla Chia Pudding are layered with pureed strawberry and banana, all topped with fresh strawberry slices (and crunchy granola if you like!)

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

IT'S RHUBARB SEASON! Rhubarb is such a unique fruit - so tangy and versatile and truly signifies the arrival of Spring. Here I've captured the flavours of Spring in Strawberry Rhubarb Jam.

IT’S RHUBARB SEASON! Rhubarb is such a unique fruit – so tangy and versatile and truly signifies the arrival of Spring. It reminds me of being a kid and playing in my grandma’s back yard where she grew huge rhubarb plants with leaves the size of my entire little body. Of course, as a child, I could care less about her rhubarb plants – I was more intent on picking the sugar snap peas or raspberries or grapes.

In my dreams I would have a yard (hahaha! Having a yard is actually a laughable concept, given that I live in a city where real estate prices are sky high!) full of fruit trees – and would be able to preserve all fruit to enjoy year round. As a kid I used to dream about living on a farm – and still to this day, I can’t say I disagree! As long as the farm has my dream orchard 😉
