This was always one of my favorite snacks growing up, and now it’s one of my kids. I couldn’t find my Nana’s recipe though when I went to make it this morning, so I hunted around online until I found one that I thought was similar, then just made a couple of changes to it. While I found the recipe on Tasty Kitchen, I’ll give you the like to the author’s actual blog here: One Ordinary Day.

I wanted to make something as a treat for the kids today, and something that Bo could take with him in the car. Doughnuts. Doughnuts seemed like the perfect thing. So, off I went looking for doughnut recipes that I could quickly whip up. My first lesson: those soft, squishy, glazed doughnuts are yeast based and take hours of time to rise and make. They were out of the picture. Cake style it is.

Alright, back to baking! There is one heck of an explanation to the delay, but I’ll post that to the life section later. For now, on to the muffins!
I finally started dipping my toes into the whole canning experience this summer. I am a fan. A fan who didn’t realize just how long it can take to do a big, year long batch, but a fan none the less. I made an absolute ton of strawberry jam, so what better when to use it than in some fresh made muffins. I’m big on breakfasts that my kids can just pick up and eat. I find some days it’s just easier to get food into them so they can shove it in their mouths while driving their cars, or jumping into a ball pit.

So, it’s set to feel like 40ºC here today (that 104ºF for those of you not in Canada). That’s really, REALLY hot for June. At least for me. I figure what better to share than then the popsicles that completely changed my outlook on just buying them.
The recipe is from Irresistible Ice Pops by Sunil Vijayakar. You can see my whole review on the cook book here.

If I make you one promise that you believe, let it be that this is the best and easiest caramel corn you can make. Along with that though, let me warn you that it can be addictive. I mean, it cooks up in mere minutes, and it tastes better then anything you can buy at a store.
I don’t even want to waste time writing about it, I just want to show you so that you can get in the kitchen and make it.

I was stuck trying to think of something different for Oliver for lunch. I opened the crisper and saw the pile of green peppers that I’d forgotten I’d bought, then I looked to the island and saw all the sweet onions. I didn’t really have a choice, what ever it was I was making, it was going to be chop full of those two things.
I made a pizza for lunch on the weekend, so I had some leftover pepperoni, cheese and sauce, and some tortillas (which to be honest, I have no idea why I actually bought those last week, but I’m glad I did).

It seems like almost every time I turn on the food network, someone is making some version of empanadas. I finally couldn’t take it any more and decided to get in on the action. I mean, how can you go wrong with something that you can eat with one hand and no fork?
I’ve seen every version on tv from breakfast to dinner to dessert. The meat filled ones really intrigue me. I’ve seen them with pulled pork inside, ground beef seasoned to the hilt, and while I can’t wait to try these, I figured a dessert one was the easiest place to start.
