    A quick Matcha Granola recipe to perk up your Mondays

    It’s Monday again and I’m feeling the Monday Blues, which is ironic since I’m writing about a recipe right now that’s in the shade of green. I was on the verge of procrastinating yet again just now; going back and forth about whether I should blog today or tomorrow or the next day… But then I really wanted to talk about this little super easy-to-make treat. It’s definitely a recipe that needs to be passed along to my fellow matcha lovers. So I’ll keep this post short and straight to the point: You guys have to try this Matcha Granola recipe. All it takes is 3 steps!

    Peanut Butter Banana Waffles coz it’s Waffle Day!

    So apparently today is International Waffle Day! Despite the fact that I haven’t posted any waffle recipe on the blog until today, waffles actually have a special place in my heart. I love them! I love the way they look (especially the round waffles), and I love how they’re crunchy on the outside and pancake-soft on the inside. I tend to be a sucker for those kinds of things, including crusty bread. Waffles can be made in a gazillion different flavours just like pancakes, but there are days when you just want to make something low maintenance. Usually it’s the classics that are this way, don’t you agree? There are…

    Pancakes are always perfect for the weekend

    It’s the weekend!!! My weekend doesn’t start until Sunday but for most normal working people you get two days off before another round of work work work and I’m jealous. Mostly I’m jealous because you get to sleep in, which for some reason I have an inability to do even on Sundays and holidays. Hmm. I guess it’s because I always feel extra motivated to cramp in as much of my hobbies and personal favourite activities on my free days that my body just jolts awake on its own at 6 or 7 in the morning.

    A fun way to enjoy eggs and toast

    What a crazy last few weeks it has been. I wasn’t expecting moving my whole blog to this self-hosted space to be so much work, but thanks to my OC-ness, I just had to go back and check each and every one of my posts for broken links, not to mention I just had to put all the recipes into the pretty little recipe card plugin I decided to use. It took about three weeks give or take before I could finish everything, given that I could only work for a few hours at night. (I have work the whole day until Saturday, then I inevitably fall asleep in front…

    Driving slow on Sunday mornings

    I needed to borrow a line from Maroon 5 because it perfectly describes the Sundays I’ve been spending this last month and a half. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’re probably sick of hearing me complain about how tired I’ve been recently. Sorry, guys. There just have been weeks when I feel so out of it that I don’t spend time in the kitchen at all (thank goodness for backlogs and former baking frenzies). I haven’t made any breads in a while which makes me sad, but I’ve gained a new appreciation for things that are quick to whip up with an equally satisfying pay-off. And since…

    {The Breakfast Bin} Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

    I am obsessed with collecting recipes for pancakes. I very rarely make breakfast, let alone pancakes from scratch, and yet here I am, just basically looking through my favourite food blogs in search of all the pancake recipes I could find. After coming across about a dozen I liked, I asked myself, what on earth is my purpose for amassing these recipes anyway? So one fine morning, I dragged myself out of bed in time to get a stack of pancakes on the breakfast table before everyone else stirred from their sleep.
