Peanut Butter Banana Bread with Nutella

Banana bread with oomph!  That’s how I’d describe this Peanut Butter Banana Bread with Nutella. Is there anything more perfect than chocolate + peanut butter?  And then go all Elvis-style with banana?  Nope.  Not around these parts.  Prepped in about 10 minutes, the hardest part of this recipe is waiting for this baby to bake.  Then go for it!

Hey everybody!  How’s it going?

So this past weekend I discovered something that I was super excited about.   I found out a way to clean our stainless steel appliances and have them look like new!  What you ask??  Ok, ok.  I know it’s not that exciting.  Now, it’s not like finding a $20 bill in your jacket pocket or realizing you’re down 5 pounds, but it’s the little things, isn’t it?  So, I was always Continue reading

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burgers with Arugula Lime Sauce

I love a traditional beef burger as much as the next person, but sometimes I want something a little different, a little lighter, and a bit more healthy.  These Black Bean & Sweet Potato Burgers with Arugula-Lime Sauce are so tasty that you won’t even miss the meat!  They are loaded with spices and are low in the fat department.  If you omit the feta cheese, it would not only be vegetarian, but vegan.  You can simply replace the feta with crumbled tofu or just omit all together and they would still be fantastic.

Jumbo Blueberry Muffins with Orange Pecan Crumble {and Orange Honey Butter}

Oh, look, cupcakes less popular cousin – muffins!  Well, these Jumbo Blueberry Muffins with Orange Pecan Crumble are not your average muffin, that’s for sure!  Just that they have local Newfoundland berries kinda makes them inherently wicked, that’s for sure!  Now, I may be a little biased, but blueberries in Newfoundland are by far the best blueberries found anywhere!  Seriously, though, they are so sweet & concentrated in flavour, they kick any other blueberries’ butt!  Around late Summer/early Fall, people typically go berry picking in Newfoundland.  They are grown wild and you can fill buckets and buckets with these little gems.  I recently got a bunch and couldn’t wait to bake with them (if they lasted that long before I had a chance to do so!).  They are so much tinier than any mass produced/grown ones you may find in the grocery store, but they make up for in their amazing flavour…like little candies!
