Grannies Apple Crisp

The parts that I love about apple crisp are: it is an amazing dessert idea, it is the easiest to make, and it is great for breakfast the next day. Haha guiltyyyy. Apple crisp, aside from pumpkin pie, is my favourite; especially this recipe. This is the ultimate apple crisp recipe; grandmas recipe. “Theeeee” cook in the family and she taught me so much while growing up, so many recipes and ways of doing things, not only in the kitchen but just in life. This recipe is definitely one little gem I’ll never forget.

4 cups of apples, peeled, chopped, and cored
1/3 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cup of oatmeal flakes
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of melted butter
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda

Combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, and flour. Sprinkle over apples.
Put apples in bottom of greased baking dish
Combine oatmeal, brown sugar and soda
Add melted butter and rub into oatmeal mixture to make crumbs
Place crumbs on top of apples, patting them down evenly
Bake at 375 for approximately 40 minutes

Done! Enjoy!


Dairy-Free Maple Latte

I don’t know if I’m stereotypical or just a total product of my environment but I LOVE MAPLE SYRUP. In the spring there’s the Maple Syrup Festival and in the fall there is the chilly weather which calls for maple syrup in our lattes and on our breakfast. To make it just a little healthy, I made it dairy-free; you can’t even tell the difference. Try it and I promise, you’ll enjoy it.

1/3 cup of coffee
1/2 cup of almond milk, or regular
1 tbsp of maple syrup

Put your milk a pot and heat, stop before it is boil. Use a hand blender and blend the milk until it froths.
While you do this, make your coffee.
Put your coffee in a mug, add in your maple syrup, and top with your milk. Allowing the froth to be the last thing that goes in your mug.
You can add in some cinnamon or nutmeg as well if you’d like!

Done! Enjoy!

Breakfast Burrito

I find that being creative for breakfast is the hardest. Also, weekend breakfast is so hard to make as a healthy annnd delicious meal. I always love the greasy-spoon eggs, bacon, toast, and beans meal. Like really, who doesn’t! Or the French toast with mounds of Quebec maple syrup?! Ahhh my favourite! Topped with warm peaches and homemade whipped cream. Yes please!

However, if I ate that way all the time, well, you could expect a blog about my health issues and not my food. So I love this option. Less on the carbs, stuffed with vegetables, eggs… yaaa and bacon. Gotta have some bacon.

1 whole wheat wrap
Yellow onion
1 egg cooked
2 slices of cooked bacon
Hot sauce, ketchup, or Dijon mustard

Add all ingredients into a wrap, fold, and enjoy!

Dream Dates

When in a rush, on the go, have a sweet tooth, or just want a snack, these little bites of perfection satisfy your hunger and taste like a candy bar!

I woke up this morning with a million things in my head to have done this morning. Of course, with those plans in my head, my stomach was telling me to do something else. I was starving!! However, if I had made more than a few minutes of time available to cook… this blog would be a lot fancier this morning and my plans would be on the backburner. So I came up with these! I had two and it totally satisfied my stomach’s temper-tantrum.

Two Medjool Dates
2 tsp of all-natural peanut butter
1 tsp of Greek yogurt
Shredded coconut

Cut a slit into both dates and remove the pits.
Add your peanut butter to each, top it with your Greek yogurt and coconut!

Done! Enjoy!

Boxty n’ Sausage

Sometimes, Sundays are required to have hearty, not-so-healthy, delicious breakfasts. This is a favourite and is super easy to make. In Ireland, Boxty is such a large part of their culture, there have been poems created about the dish. It is a type of potato pancake and is great for dinner or breakfast. With maple syrup, sour cream and green onions, or even ketchup and hot sauce.

Boxty on the griddle,
and boxty on the pan,
The wee one in the middle,
Is for Mary Ann.

Boxy on the griddle,
Boxty on the pan,
If you can’t bake boxty,
Sure you’ll never get a man.

1lb of peeled potatoes
1/4 tsp of baking powder
1 cup of flour
1 cup of buttermilk

Boil half of the potatoes and when soft, mash them. The other half can be grated. Add both together into a mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.

Cook your sausages. I cook mine in the oven.

Get out your frying pan and melt in some butter. Pour in the batter, as if you’re making pancakes. make whatever size you want but don’t make them too thick. Flip them after 3-5 minutes. When it is browning and the batter is half way cooked through.

Serve with your favourite toppings and serve right away with your sausages!

Done! Enjoy!
