Scrambled Eggs with Spinach, Feta, and Pine Nuts

A plate of perfectly scrambled eggs is one of my favorite breakfasts. Who am I kidding I eat them for dinner too. When I first came up with this variation, we ate them 3 days in a row for breakfast. They are just so yummy and quick to make, 10 minutes is all you need.

Green All-Purpose Cleaner

This simple recipe is what I have been using for the past few years and it has been working great. When we were living in Calgary last year, it was more convenient to buy a bottle of natural cleaner from the grocery store. It turned out to be a waste of time.

Sunset in the Mountains

I get mountain fever just seeing these photos. The sunset glow on Mount Vaught and Stanton is breathtaking. Can’t you just picture yourself on top of that peak. Maybe soon, we don’t have a final list of summits for the summer yet.

Banana Pancakes

Makin’ Banana Pancakes on the weekend or pretend that it’s the weekend, yeah These are great for a lazy weekend morning as well easing the Monday morning blues. I’m not much of a breakfast person during the week but sometimes a little something out of the ordinary in the form of pancakes and espresso is definitely in order.
