I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Earth Day Bars

Celebrate our planet with the flavours of the world.

Heat oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, combine:

1  1/2 cups baking mix (Bisquick)
1  1/2 cups oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp cinnamon

You can add 1 cup of whatever tasty bits you like or any combination of, as long as it measures 1 cup. Suggestions are coconut, flaxseed, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, dates, dried pineapple, raisins or nuts.

You can use store bought baking mix or try this homemade version:


Press the dough into an ungreased 9 X 13 inch pan and bake for 17 minutes.  Allow to cool for  10 minutes before cutting.

Here I used 1/2 cup coconut, 1/4 cup chopped almonds and 1/4 cup of chocolate chips here.  I also threw in 1/4 cup of flax and sprinkled a little cocoa over top.

This time....  
2 tbsps quinoa (1/2 cup cooked)
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/8 cup ground flax seeds
1/8 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

The possibilities are endless!
