BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

I feel like everyone should have a banana muffin recipe. Whether it’s passed down from your grandmother or you saw something on the food network. It’s one of those recipes that you keep with you and can create over and over again. I always have […]

SESAME SUGAR SNAP PEAS

GREEN SMOOTHIE

GREEN SMOOTHIE

  Smoothies are my favourite everyday dessert. I use kefir for its probiotic properties. It’s a fermented milk drink that has lots of good bacteria. Coconut oil has so many health benefits and when I first heard of adding it to a smoothie, I was […]
