Mini egg cookies

Mini eggs are one of my favourite Easter treats and I also love cookies (see examples here and here). I combined my two favourites and am excited to share my mini egg cookies with you.

Healthy pumpkin pie

The Canadian Thanksgiving weekend just passed and our meal wouldn’t have been complete without healthy pumpkin pie. I’m a ghostwriter and author, not a food blogger, so the recipes you see on my site are what I’m literally about to put on our table. You can’t get more authentic than that, friends.

Protein-packed peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

There’s nothing better than your house smelling like freshly baked cookies (okay, maybe there are a few things. I’m a romance author after all). Finding healthier cookie recipes like my protein-packed peanut butter chocolate chip cookies that also taste amazing can be challenging. Many recipes containing refined sugar proclaim to be good for you, but it isn’t at the top of my health-conscious ingredient list.
