20 Simple Summer Bucket List Ideas

Summer is such a short but glorious season, and I always want to pack as much as possible into those few precious months! However there's just something about summer where it tends to be overbooked with events. So this year we decided to make a summer bucket list of simple things we want to do before summer is over, and ...

Strawberry Glazed Prosciutto Wrapped Stuffed Chicken and Asparagus

It all started with a partial package of cream cheese. Luckily I happened to have some other delicious ingredients like prosciutto hanging around, and this skillet dinner came about! Most of our dinners, and a good part of the recipes that make it to the blog, start with a little something leftover I have on hand. In this case it ...

Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Scones

Scones are one thing I've always avoided ordering when I'm out because they're usually just not worth it. I have yet to have a truly delicious scone in a restaurant, but who knows that could change someday. But for now, I just make them at home because then I know they're not going to be crumbly and dry with the ...

Honey Sriracha Shrimp Sushi Bowls

I live in a land locked state, so I prefer to make my sushi bowls with cooked seafood or fish. Another favorite way to make them is with fruits and veggies like these Mango Sushi Bowls. But usually I keep it on the mild side when I make them with seafood so the flavors with wasabi can really shine. However my ...

Creamy Coconut Lime Chia Pudding

This coconut lime combination has become one of our favorites. It's one of those combinations you don't expect to fall head over heels for when you're a 'dyed in the wool' chocoholic, but what can you do!?! It all started with my Coconut Lime Ice Cream which has become Tyler's most requested dessert. And from there I started using the ...

Iceline Trail in Yoho National Park

The Iceline Trail in Yoho National Park is such a fantastic hike, it's hard to know where to even begin! We wanted to get in to see the famous Lake O'Hara, and do some of the hikes in that area, but as you might know that area is difficult to get in to. We tried to see if we could ...

Lemon Chicken and Asparagus Sheet Pan Dinner

This recipe is based off the flavors of my husband's favorite meal - Lemon Chicken Penne Pasta. He loves this dish so much in fact it was on the menu for our wedding. The only problem with it, is the several cups of heavy cream, although I promise I'll get the recipe to you someday because it's fantastic! I tried ...

How I Meal Prep for the Week

Food prepping is a real lifesaver for busy weeks, which come to think of it, seems to be every week. I always notice a distinct difference in how well the work week goes depending on whether or not I've prepped anything ahead. It doesn't have to be much, but just a few things prepped ahead keeps our household running much ...

Strawberry Mango Avocado Salsa

This recipe came about entirely by accident. I was trying to picture what sort of topping/salsa I might want on top of my Jalapeno Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken, (pictured below) when it occurred to me that mango salsa would be really awesome. But of course I was running short on mangos, so I added what I did have, which happened ...
