vegan oatmeal raisin cookies

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetNow that I have eliminated so many foods and food groups from my breastfeeding diet, when it comes to indulging in sweet treats, I am limited to but a few options. Certainly nothing that involves dairy or chocolate. So what’s left? Nothing that is store-bought and tastes good!

I was going through my old recipe book one day and as luck would have it, I came across my vegan oatmeal raisin cookie recipe. I used to eat these cookies on a daily basis years ago when I was still a barista at a local coffee shop. The recipe is actually inspired by one of their vegan cookie recipes, but instead of raisins, they used dairy-free chocolate chips. It’s delicious either way.

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup raisins/dairy-free chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar

1. Stir ingredients together in a large bowl. Let stand 15 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 350°F.

cups and succ(ulent)s

IMG_0024The last time I published a post about our kitchen, we had installed new cabinets and had partially rearranged it. After all of that, I still had not yet achieved the light and airy look that I was hoping for. You know the one. I can usually be found in the IKEA catalogue. White walls. Open shelving. Exposed plates. Greenery. Minimalist. So, I rearranged things once again.

IMG_0043I dragged the massive wire storage unit that we purchased from Home Depot into the kitchen, switching out the antique wooden armoire. After I washed the rack down, I set about arranging all of our plates, cups, and succulents on it. 

IMG_0034IMG_0038I couldn’t have asked for a better fit. It blended in so beautifully. I love how it displays our plates and bowls from Crate & Barrel, our glassware from Anthropologie, our organizers from IKEA, and my collection of over thirty succulents that I have been carefully growing over the last few years.

taste of saskatchewan 

img_6620Hey guys! You may have noticed that I took a little break from blogging. The fact of the matter is that I have a teething baby at home, and it took all of my energy to keep her content during the day. She recently went from one nightly feeding to waking up three to four times throughout the night. Taking care of her fussiness, all the while not being allowed to consume caffeine was exhausting. But she seems to be doing much better now, so I can return to blogging.

img_6623Last week we were able to steal some family time and visit the annual food festival that occurs in the city every summer. Over thirty vendors and sixty bands attend this event. Each restaurant generally offers around three of their bestselling and unique dishes. The idea is to go and try as many as you can.

img_6624I was boring and just got fish and chips from Joey’s. Geoffrey was a little more adventurous and tried dishes from Saskatoon Asian and The Canadian Brewhouse. We’ve gone to Taste of Saskatchewan a few times in the past. I wasn’t sure how it would be this time with a four month old baby, but Remy did amazingly well. As long as we’re outdoors and there are things or people to see, she’s a content little girl.

img_6618The weather was also really beautiful that evening. After grabbing our food, we went and sat alongside the river. There we watched the skidoos and listened to the live music. Afterwards, we went for a walk. 

img_6619I think that this was our first official outing/date as a family of three. I can’t believe that we have waited this long, but in reality, it doesn’t really bother me. It was such a special evening. I really do love my new family.

wears : winners

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetOh, glorious, glorious summer. You have been especially kind to us on the prairies this year. We have been given blazing hot days since the end of April. With each passing month, my shorts have become shorter, and my tops lighter. 

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetDo any of you have the store Winners where you live? It has amazing name brand clothing offered at great discounted price. In fact, my cool summer outfit was purchased from there. Of course, I mean cool as in airy and chic! You can never go wrong with a store like that. :-)))

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetI hope that everyone is enjoying their summer so far. Happy, happy Monday.
