Today was Foodie Friday number 25! Over the last few weeks, in my spare time, I find myself constantly watching videos on the YouTube channel: Good Mythical Morning. Rhett and Link, are a comedic duo that often find themselves doing crazy experiments, playing creative games, and eating insane foods. In one of their older videos, they question “Will It Popsicle?“, and oatmeal turned out to be successful.
Intrigued, I decided to make my own twist on The Oatmeal Popsicle. As always, you could take your own creative liberties with this recipe. For example, you could try making it with milk (boiled for safety of course), dip the final product in melted chocolate, or simply reheat for a quick hot oatmeal snack!
Today was Foodie Friday number 22! With Easter weekend approaching, I thought it would make sense to clear out the fridge before we had loads of leftovers from Easter dinner. What better way to use up some tomato sauce than pizza? Or in this case pizza rolls?
This recipe for Easy Peasy Pizza Rolls, is just as the title suggests. Its quick, simple, and delicious. These rolls are also very customizable, as you may use as much of any tomato sauce you please, (within reason of course) and same goes for the cheese!
Today was Foodie Friday number 20! I am currently out of town, staying with my Grandparents for the weekend. My Grandfather’s birthday is today so I made this recipe ahead of time so I wouldn’t miss yet another Friday this month.
This Banana Bread recipe is a family favourite, and has almost become a staple. With or without chocolate chips, toasted or fresh, it makes a fantastic treat for breakfast or any other time of day. The more ripe the banana, the more rich the flavour.
Today was Foodie Friday number 19! After spending the whole of yesterday working on a project, today’s snowy weather was the perfect excuse to stay in and warm up the house with the oven. If you haven’t already noticed, I love muffins. The lack of them in my house inspired yet another recipe.
What goes well with cranberries? Oranges. What goes well with both? Chocolate. Enough said. These Cranberry Chocolate Muffins are a simple and fantastic combination of all three. The streusel topping is optional, but who can resist it?
Today was Foodie Friday number 15! It was one of those days where you wake up thinking you will do one thing, and then you end up doing the opposite. I thought at first I would be out of the house for most of the day, but plans change, so I ended up staying home. Staying home without any idea how to spend my time typically leads to me baking something. Today that something was muffins. Muffins are also a go to for me. I know that I have already posted a version of blueberry muffins, (Recipe: Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins) but I love blueberry muffins so I will warn you, these are not the only two recipes you will be seeing.
These blueberry muffins in particular, are simple and bring the blueberry muffin back to its basics. Blueberries, subtle sweetness, and the perfect amount of moisture make these muffins a classic snack.
Today was Foodie Friday number 9, and it was a cold and lazy one at that. I had slept in, and when I awoke, the sky was grey with clouds, and the ground was still lightly dusted with snow from the day before. To warm myself up, I decided to pull out one of my Mom’s old recipes and make a tasty snack. These Oatmeal Bars are crunchy with a subtle sweetness. Similar to crunchy granola bars, they may be enjoyed as they are, or crumbled onto yogurt or even ice cream.
Today was Foodie Friday number 8, and it was nuts… almost literally. My mother and I are taking part in a community bake and craft sale tomorrow afternoon, so that meant that today we spent all day baking. One of our products for tomorrow also happens to be one of my favourite recipes of all time. Harvest Loaf is a seasonal tradition in my household. Every year, we carve a pumpkin for Halloween, and then roast it the next day to puree for this recipe specifically. All year, I wait for the day that we bake this loaf.
Harvest Loaf is a wonderful fall favourite. The subtle combination of pumpkin and chocolate, with the addition of delicate spices, make it a warm, comforting snack. This loaf may also be enjoyed toasted, or with the addition of chopped nuts or shredded coconut.
