Can you guys believe it!? Valentine’s Day 2018 is already less than a month away!! I feel like 2017 just flew by, but I’m determined to not let 2018 get away quite so quickly. I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions but I do have a general sense of how I’d like my year to go and I just try to stay true to that throughout the year. Starting my year off by getting creative and working with amazing local businesses was one way I wanted to get this year going. This month I’ve been working with the lovely Maggie…

Oh my goodness, did you guys know there is a food truck in Penticton that’s filled with dog treats!? I seriously let out a squeal of excitement when I found out. Needless to say Jaxx (@justjaxx_) and I followed them on Instagram right away and are planning our family summer road trip out to the treat truck. Luckily for Jaxx he was able to get his paws on some of Dog Dayz K9 Treats early, thanks to his buddy Ty who sent over a direct delivery! We were both pretty excited, but Jaxx had the most fun opening his delivery…

Strawberry Pop-Tarts

Homemade Strawberry Pop-Tarts + Bonus Cinnamon Roll Filling - Lake Country - Okanagan

I’ve always wanted to try making a homemade version of a pop-tart. Something that felt special and decadent, perfect for Christmas morning and special occasions. Well we did some experimenting, a lot of taste testing (the best part!), and ended up with these delicious strawberry pop-tarts. I warn you though, they are too easy to devour!! We used the strawberries that I froze from our summer garden harvest, I love having a little stash in the freezer. We usually run out quickly though, so we savour every bite with treats like these. I get so excited every Spring because that…

Butternut Squash Soup

Homemade Butternut Squash Soup - Lake Country - British Columbia

Butternut squash has been a somewhat recent addition to our kitchen, we started cooking with it last year when I made a side dish for Christmas dinner. It turned out delicious! Luckily for us, it’s in season again and I picked one up from our local fruit stand for dinner last week. I ended up only using half of it, and I’m so glad because It’s been cold and snowy outside and a Butternut Squash Soup was sounding like the perfect way to warm up! I kept our recipe fairly simple, but this soup seems so forgiving that you can’t…

Apple Pie Green Smoothie

Apple Pie Green Smoothie - Lake Country - Okanagan - British Columbia

Another smoothie post! I know, but I’ve been experimenting with different flavours and this one was delicious! Winter arrived a little early for us this year, and one thing I love to do when it’s snowing out is bake! I love the warmth it brings to the house, and it makes everything feel so cozy. But… I’ve already made a few baked goods this past week so when I was craving something sweet this morning I opted to experiment with this Apple Pie Green Smoothie instead. You know.. because that 80/20 rule to keep things balanced, right?! Haha! I like…
