Protein Fruit Dip


Dip always makes a great snack. And, for those that have a bit of a sweet tooth like me, this protein fruit dip is a protein-packed afternoon treat. You can eat this straight from the bowl with a spoon, add fruit to the bowl, or use it as a dip with fruit. You can even cover fruit in the dip and freeze it for a cool treat. I find chocolate or strawberry protein powder works best. But vanilla is my absolute favourite for this recipe. I haven't had the chance to test it with any other flavours. But I'm sure [...]

Harley’s First Birthday


It was quite a while ago now, but Harley’s first birthday was on January 13. I wanted to celebrate but because it was a Tuesday and I had worked all day I didn’t really have the energy for much. I decided to make some dog cupcakes or pupcakes. After trolling for recipes on Pinterest, I found a dog cupcake recipe that I liked but more importantly, had the ingredients for.   I think it’s safe to say that he enjoyed it very much. We did make him wait for quite a while. Yet he sat there happily posing for photos. [...]

Mexican Coffee Pudding with Kahlúa Whipped Cream


A while back, I had some cream in the fridge but didn't seem to have a use for it. So I did some googling and came across a recipe for Mexican Coffee Pudding. Lucky for me, I had all the ingredients in the fridge or pantry. What makes it a Mexican coffee pudding? Coffee in Mexico is often brewed with cinnamon and sugar. But they aren't just added to the coffee after brewing. They are part of the brewing technique. The result is a coffee that is sweet and a little bit spicy. My Mexican coffee recipe is a little [...]

Chia Oat Pudding


I had never tried chia seeds before and decided to take the plunge when I saw them on the shelf next to the quinoa in the health food aisle at the supermarket. Chia seeds have gained so much popularity recently and I must say I hadn't ever heard of them until recently too. Chia seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and can absorb up to 12 times their weight in liquid! Now that I have discovered the wonder that is Chia, I've had to look up some recipes. I tried a few but they did not turn out to be [...]

Rolo Pudding


I had some friends over for dinner recently and wanted to make sure there was a dessert element to the meal. I’d seen some amazing crock pot desserts around Pinterest & was looking forward to trying one. My husband suggested making something that was both chocolate and banana. Unfortunately, Pinterest was only able to provide recipes for crock pot choc chip banana bread. Then I had a brainwave: Rolo Pudding. Rolo Pudding is a rich milk chocolate self-saucing pudding made with creamy caramel Rolo chocolate. This is one of my husband’s all-time favourite dessert recipes since my mum made it [...]
