Summer Fruits Salad

Here is a fruit salad I made for Father’s Day to have with the fishing themed cupcakes Kim made and brought for everyone!

Fruit salads are very refreshing as dessert, especially on hot days!

Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl Bread

I found an awesome sounding Raisin/Cinnamon bread recipe at tideandthyme.com and couldn’t wait to try it!


Raisin/Cinnamon bread has always been Dillon’s favourite bread.  I have literally seen him sit with a fresh loaf and practically inhale the whole thing.  As I was making this, he kept coming upstairs and telling me how good the bread smelled while it was baking, and oh yes, he would take the whole pan lol!
I thought this would be great toasted but I am also going to keep a loaf to make weekend French Toast!

Cranberry Bran Buds Muffins

A few weeks ago I received a coupon in the mail for a free box of All Bran Buds cereal. While I love anything bran, I didn’t feel like just eating it as cereal, so I made muffins. They were going to be raisin bran muffins but I either forgot I was out of raisins or Dillon ate them lol. Thankfully I knew I had a partial bag of frozen cranberries, so I added them instead.

These muffins are nice and moist, not dry like some bran muffins can be. And they freeze really well. I like to keep a few things in the freezer ready to pop in lunch boxes on the off chance I don’t feel like baking one week!

Maple Garlic Sausage Round Patties

I made and posted these a while back but now seemed like a good time to repost.  What could be better than home made sausage patties for a weekend breakfast?

Yesterday I made ahead some Maple Garlic Sausage patties for today’s breakfast.  These are quick and easy to make and you can tweak them to suit your personal taste preferences.  The boys love maple sausages so I thought this combination would be perfect to test out on them!

Banana Waffles

Is everyone getting sick of my waffle recipes yet lol???  They seem to have become our Saturday morning breakfast, with Sunday still being the “Big Breakfast” day.  I had some bananas that I was getting ready to freeze for future banana bread but then decided it might be nice to try a batch of waffles using the bananas.

These taste sort of like banana bread but lighter and fluffier… add some sliced banana on top and real Canadian Maple syrup and you have a very delicious recipe… as Kim says, anything with maple syrup on it or in it has to be good lol.  I swear she would drink the stuff if she thought she could get away with it!

Cinnamon Oatmeal Waffles

Saturday morning I broke out my new waffle maker again.  I wanted to try another waffle recipe I had and they were great!  I did put the actual oatmeal through the food processor… on grind… for a few seconds to make it into more of a flour consistency to make sure it didn’t clog up the grid on the pouring funnel and it worked great. 

These waffles are delicious and so nice and fluffy… fluffy enough that Dillon actually made a comment to that effect!  I wasn’t sure he would even notice with how quickly he was scarfing them down lol!

Blueberry Waffle Sauce

I would like to say this is an actual recipe but it is more a process I went through when my plan to make blueberry waffles fell through.  I think I mentioned in an earlier post that Dillon bought me a new waffle maker for Christmas this year.  The only problem is that it is one of the waffle makers with the pour spout on it and on the spout is a plastic grid… a grid that blueberries will not fit through.

I had bought a half pint of blueberries with the intention of making the waffles but had to rethink this when I realized the blueberries wouldn’t fit lol.  This is where the idea came to make a sauce out of the blueberries instead… and from the almost licked clean plates I would have to say it was a success!
