Good Morning Green Smoothie

Lake Country Green Smoothie - Pear - Cucumber - Spinach - Lemon

I didn’t have some of my favourites on hand this morning, but I was really craving a smoothie. So I had to get a little creative with what was in the fridge, but I came up with this variation of a green smoothie. It was delicious! Spinach is a good energy and mood booster and you don’t even notice it other than the colour. If you haven’t tried greens in your smoothies yet it’s totally worth it. You can start off with just a little and add more as you get comfortable with it. I also add some plant-based protein…

Coffee & Sweaters.. Fall is Here!

Happy first day of Fall! I’m looking forward to all the upcoming hot beverages, warm cozy outfits, delicious baked goods, and beautiful fall colours on the trees. But mostly, I am enjoying the blue skies we’ve been getting since our summer here had many of our days filled with smoke from surrounding forest fires. Plus it’s Friday and the weekend has officially started, so I’m off to celebrate the first day of Fall 2017 with a glass of wine. Specifically Kerner from Gray Monk Estate Winery. If you like a sweet white wine, this is definitely worth the drive to…

This past Sunday marked the 37th annual Terry Fox Run, a fundraiser for cancer research with many communities participating each year. The event was held at the Mission Sports Field in Kelowna, British Columbia, and thankfully the weather held up for a fantastic morning. There was a great turn-out of participants, including a few four-legged furry friends! I was one of the many volunteers there that morning and spent my time enjoying the event and capturing all the fun activities. Kris Kringlexx and her husband Norm both work tirelessly each year to put together such a meaningful and fun family…

Peanut Butter Cookies

Homemade Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies - Okanagan - British Columbia

I don’t bake much in the summer since it’s too hot to turn the oven on, but today was a cool day so it was perfect for getting some gardening done and whipping up a batch of these Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies. There’s something about having all the windows open, fresh cut garden flowers on the counter, and peanut butter cookies baking in the oven that just makes a cold Sunday seem perfect. I’ve been making these since I was a kid using Kraft peanut butter, but I’ve since switched to natural peanut butter so I had to make a few minor changes…

Blueberries & Lemons

Homemade Blueberry Lemon Cake - Lake Country, Okanagan, British

Happy Thursday!! I spent the morning whipping up this super tasty Blueberry Lemon cake since I was in a baking mood. Plus it was a great way to use up the last of the Greek yogurt that was in the fridge. I usually make this into a loaf but I was feeling the square cake pan today so I decided to switch it up a little… not that it affects the taste in any way, lol! :P :D As usual, my love for food and creativity had to blend too, so I fended off the hungry family to get a…
