Chocolate espresso pancakes

Chocolate espresso pancakes are the final batch of Sunday pancakes that I will be making before we head home for vacation. It's sad to leave since summer has just arrived, but I'll be heading back to loads of comfort food (that is good for the heart, neh, not so good for the waistline). But who am I kidding, life has changed quite a bit since I have become a mother. I'd rather be having a good time with my family, than worrying getting into my bikini. My priorities have slightly changed since I have become a mother (especially since eating is one thing my son and I love to do together- the sacrifices of parenting, lol).

Squash blossom spelt pizza

Squash blossom spelt pizza is a lifesaver this week, just because I am pretty tired this week. It's gluten-free, healthy and easy to whip up for a couple of meals...It has been a long time since we have seen the sunshine and particularly this season we are hanging around a bit longer before we are heading home for vacation. So the reasons why I am tired is because my husband is away a lot recently and because my son has been heading into his one nap a day...I did not realize that meant if he napped, then well, that's it for the day...

Pineapple upside down cake

Pineapple upside down cake has summer written all over it. It's light, decadent and has a sweet tang thanks to the pineapple. I am in love with these last couple days. The mornings are still a bit fresh, but then later in the day, it gets slightly heated and then cools down once again around four in the afternoon. The birds sing and the wildflowers, especially the pops of red from the poppy flowers make me so happy. There are lilac trees and elderflower trees, that I didn't even know was around us a year ago. I watch our son play, and he is just having a ball playing outside. This season of life I am enjoying so much.

Beet matcha ice cream

Beet matcha ice cream is not only for the connoisseur or these of required tastes but for everyone who kind of is searching for a bit something extra to pizzaz up their day. I recently jumped on the beet bandwagon, and I might be a couple months too late no thanx to living in the countryside. Where things aren't as accessible when you want to live a healthy lifestyle. Finally, I found beet powder and it tastes super amazing, so sweet and has the most vibrant color!

Avocado sweet pea hummus

Avocado sweet pea hummus is just such a beautiful side dish to those fresh spring days and evenings. I love hummus and have been making a batch every week, depending on the mood I am in, depends what flavors I like to add. Some of my favorite ones have been soy honey, tangy sweet turmeric, roasted carrot and sundried tomato hummus.

Spring dutch Baby

Spring dutch baby is a quick and easy lunch that I could whip up in a jiffy. I have to hungry men in my household, so I have to make sure that the meals I make are healthy, filling and fresh. Not that they don't know how healthy these meals actually are, I sneak a few key ingredients like feta to cream things up so they don't tell the difference.

Dressed in LORAINEROUX

Dressed in Loraine Roux gives you a closer look of the fearlessly stylish brand of Loraine Roux, The LORAINEROUX Collection. One word comes to mind when I think about this woman - exceptional. Since I have known Loraine, she had done things with excellence. It is no wonder that this lady of valor has started her very own fashionable clothing brand. I am was so happy to see that she even extended her graces towards the breastfeeding mothers out there, because let's be honest, not a whole lot of fashion houses caters for this market. Not only are her breastfeeding dresses beautiful and stylish but timeless as well. Here is a closer look at her current range as well as her new spring range that was launched this past week.
