3-Ingredient Peach Ice Cream

This is some of the most delicious and extremely easy ice cream I have ever made!  I kept seeing recipes for 3-ingredient ice cream, and after making this one I am completely sold!  I’m thinking I will try adding even more fun stuff the next time I make this. I was thinking a mint chocolate chip could be my next adventure. You could definitely layer the ice cream and add in toppings to each layer to get them dispursed throughout the ice cream instead of them all falling to the bottom.  I love finding recipes that are super easy and only require a few ingredients. Not only are they easy to make, but you can whip them up pretty quick with stuff just lying around in your pantry!

Blackberry Peach Galette

Andrew is finally back in Vancouver after a month away! Thank goodness, now I can finally cook/bake normal meals and not have to worry about eating it all myself. It’s also always nice being able to cook or bake for another person. The other good thing about right now is that it’s peach season!!!!! I have been eating peaches like they’re going out of style! We bought a 10 lb flat of them the other day for $10. Such a good deal! So get ready for some peachy goodness!

Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Cookies

I’m back!! Sorry I’ve had a really busy past few weeks at work, and usually the last thing I want to do when I come home is look at a computer screen! I think this summer in general has just been a busy summer. I’m also finding it harder to cook for myself because Andrew is up in Prince George, and it’s much harder cooking for just one! What have I been eating you ask? Well, mostly just salad and fresh fruit and veg! I’m taking advantage of the fresh BC produce that’s available in the summer. Although I have been eating healthy, who’s to say that you can’t have a treat now and then!! These cookies were originally supposed to be sandwich cookies with raspberry buttercream in the middle, but I just think that would be too sweet for me!

Curied BBQ Chicken Skewers

Well, Andrew has officially left to do his rural family practice which means I have to start cooking for one! My first goal was to master BBQing. Did you know I have never actually BBQed before, Andrew always takes care of that part! Before he left, he gave me a quick crash course on how to fire up the grill, and I am pleased to say that I was quite successful in my first BBQ adventure! I slightly modified this recipe from one I found off the Ricardo Cuisine website.  All their recipes are not only delicious, but also extremely easy to make, which makes them even more fantastic. Definitely go check them out!

Blueberry Cherry Zucchini Muffins

I am so addicted to summer fruit. There is nothing I love more than buying fresh and local fruits and veggies from my local grocery store. Everything tastes much better when you know exactly where it’s come from. I can’t stop eating cherries, blueberries and raspberries right now! These muffins are full of farm-to-table ingredients, which I think makes them even tastier. I even got the zucchini from a farm when I was out picking berries on Canada Day. I feel very lucky to live in a province that can grow such fantastic produce!

Lemon Dill Salmon Steaks with Low Fat Dill Sauce

BC has been suffering from so many wildfires lately, many of which have been caused by humans. In fact, there are currently 117 wildfires (greater than 10 hectares) burning just in our province (and this number seems to be increasing daily)!! Although we have a province-wide ban on campfires, and all our parks are showing extreme fire hazards, people continue to be careless which is causing many of these fires. So please please please, do not have a fire at this time, and make sure your cigarette butt is completely extinguished before you leave it on the ground. over the past week, all of Vancouver has been full of smoke. So much so that you can barely see the North Shore mountains from downtown Vancouver. We are so lucky to live in this beautiful province, and we really don’t appreciate the normally clean air and fresh water as much as we should!

Chocolate Skor Biscotti

I have been so incredibly busy lately, it feels like I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off… After getting back from New York on the 22nd of June, we have not been home for a weekend since! So I apologize for not blogging much! So, what exactly have I been up to? I think I told you about my cabin trip the week after New York. That was actually fabulously relaxing and I wished we could have stayed longer! Then the weekend after that was my birthday weekend! Instead of staying home and baking myself a massive cake, we hiked up to Garabaldi Lake on Saturday (23km) and then the Whistler High Note Trail (9.5km) on Sunday! It was the perfect weekend for it, and I was extremely excited to escape the city as always. We stayed overnight with some friends in Squamish which was not only much cheaper than staying in Whistler, but it was also quite pleasant!

Dark Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

I am always looking for good cookie recipes. ALWAYS. So if you have an amazing cookie recipe, please send it my way! I love making cookies because they are so very easy to give away to people. I can make a huge batch, freeze a bunch, eat a bunch, and give a bunch away! Then the next week I can eat some more! I have just gotten back from my trip to New York and man am I tired! I got back on Monday night and worked Tuesday morning. It’s felt an awful like go-go-go since I got back, but am happy to finally be getting back on the blog! We are having a bit of a heat wave in Vancouver at the moment! Baking can become a bit hot… But if you stick to doing it in the evenings it’s really not too bad!

Herb and Lemon Meatballs

Happy Father’s Day to all the Fathers out there, but especially mine!!! Unfortunately I am unable to be with my daddy today because I’m in New York! Although I am on the other side of the continent, I would still like to take this time to thank my daddy for always being there for me, and supporting me through all my adventures! Whether it was standing outside in the hail/rain/wind watching my soccer games, combing lice out of my hair, or proof reading my papers, my daddy was always there! I am so fortunate for everything my daddy has done for me, and thankful that I have a daddy as special as him.

Herb and Garlic Monkey Bread

I’m in New York! What an amazing city! I have been doing as much stuff as I possibly can the past 2 days we have been here, and I’m exhausted! Our first day we attended Hilary Clinton’s launch event on Roosevelt Island. How amazing to be apart of such history! After that we went to check out 5th Ave, Central Park, and went to the top of the rock! It was a perfect clear day to see the entire city! Then we scored half price tickets to the Broadway show Kinky Boots, and although Andrew and I were exhausted… We definitely did not fall asleep during this performance! It was truly an amazing show! Yesterday we found this super cool outdoor BBQ and ate the most delicious ribs I have probably ever had, followed by Eatily gelato… YUM!! We explored downtown New York, and ended the night with an incredible jazz concert in Harleem. Man is jazz music ever fantastic! Speaking of fantastic… Let’s talk about this bread
