Fall Flavours

North America is all about pumpkin right now - the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks is out and all the limited time pumpkin-flavoured items are in stores. Tim Horton's has a specialty Fall menu, and McDonald's has their own Pumpkin Spice Latte available (which I lived on all Fan Expo weekend). 

I really do love pumpkin and make a few recipes every Fall with pumpkin, but I cannot deny my love of apples too. Adam's a big fan of all baked goods with apples so I've been brainstorming some apple recipes to make. We also grew zucchini for the first time this Summer and I have that to use up as well. So zucchini is becoming my early Fall ingredient as I've already been making things with it. 

These are a few recipes I've been eyeing up to try soon:

Those apple cider floats are for sure going to happen because I have such a weakness for apple cider. And I want to add maple syrup to all my recipes now!

What are your Fall go-to recipes?

  1. These photos are simply delicious appetizing! I now go to my kitchen to prepare something like that.

  2. I tried making caramel apples from scratch for the first time this year to less-than-fantastic results. I'm thinking candy making isn't my thing. But baking...all these recipes above make me want to give it a go!

  3. Oh my... Those muffins look incredible! I really want to try baking pumpkin pie this year- have never tried it before xxx

  4. All of these look so delicious and make me want to start baking right away (even though its almost 10PM :D), the recipes were definitely saved for later use!

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
