Oil-Free Chocolate Zucchini Walnut Muffins

oil free vegan choclate zucchini muffins-3068

I never considered myself a big zucchini fan until this summer. Farmer’s market zucchini is what really sold me; before then, I could take it or leave it. I was used to buying small, shriveled up zucchini from the grocery store, so when I tried freshly picked zucchini it was a game changer. My favourite […]

IMG_2817-2

When we moved earlier this year, we parted with a lot of household and personal items so we could fit into our new space.

Every morning for breakfast while in Calgary, I made my favourite hot oatmeal for Diane and I. It was so chilly and rainy during our stay, the only thing on my mind was something hot.

Happy Trails Adventure Cookies

Last week was the week of the granola bar in my kitchen. It was also, unfortunately, the week of sticky fingers, sticky cupboards, sticky floors, sticky handles, and sticky clothing.
