Blueberry-Peach Breakfast Bars

Wild blueberries and fresh peaches are sandwiched a between crisp, buttery oatmeal crust.






Well our summer is almost to an end. The kids will begin their distance learning on Sept 21st, so I've been trying to think of easy breakfast ideas, for them to eat, before meeting their class online every morning. We are not sure of all the details so far, but we do know that they are expected to be online every morning, for class, with a lunch break in there somewhere. 

Since I still can not return to my cafeteria, I've been trying to keep busy by working in my home kitchen. I decided to experiment with a type of breakfast bar. The kids both love Nutrigrain bars, so I knew this would be a hit. My plan was to make an oatmeal cookie type of crust for the top and bottom and fill it with blueberries. Then I noticed that my peaches were super ripe, so I added some in along with the blueberries. This tastes very similar to a blueberry crisp and the kids mentioned that they would go great with vanilla ice cream, LOL. This is a great lunch box, or at home breakfast/snack addition, but would also make a great dessert, at the end of a dinner party.





Blueberry Peach Breakfast Bars

2 C flour
2 C quick cooking oats
1 C brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 C butter, melted
1 egg
1/4 C milk
3 C blueberries (I used wild)
2 C fresh peaches, peeled and diced
1/4 C sugar
2 Tbs flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, and baking soda. Mix well to combine. In a smaller mixing bowl, mix the melted butter, milk and egg. Pour over dry ingredients and stir until the mixture is crumbly. Press half the mixture into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Combine the blueberries and peaches, with the sugar and flour. Toss to coat completely. Pour blueberry mixture onto the crust and sprinkle remaining dough evenly over top. Bake for 25-30 minutes; until golden brown. Let cool completely before cutting.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

Beginners Guide to Meal Planning: 6 Time Saving and Money Saving Tips

It's 5 pm and I'm exhausted from a busy day in the cafeteria. Weary I stand in front of the open fridge debating whether the brownies on the counter would be an acceptable dinner. Sound familiar?

With so many pressures of everyday life, it's easy to take the easy way out and reach for your cellphone to order take out. It gets delivered right to your door! But like many others, our income took a huge hit with the recent pandemic. As income decreased, our eating increase. What else are we suppose to do stuck at home?

I've always been a fan of meal planning, but when I stopped blogging 5 yrs ago, the meal planning also stopped. I was no longer sharing with you guys, and exhausted from returning to work after 14 years of being a stay at home wife and mother. The result? I fell into the take out, "let's go out" rut. It's a delicious rut to be in, but not great for your health, or your wallet!

So today I wanted to share some tri…

No-Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pops

Peanut butter cheesecake batter is dipped into melted chocolates, creating these simple treats, perfect for Halloween!






This is Halloween, this is Halloween.... I made these cute little cheesecake pops a few years back, when I hosted a Monster High party, for my daughter and her friends.
I have to tell you that these pops were a total hit. The kids (and moms alike) LOVED how cute they were and how delicious they tasted. By the end of the party, I think there was only 2 or so left. Just enough for my son to try one. I decided to decorate my pops as pumpkins and mummies, because I had some fun black/orange, and black/white, paper straws that I had bought over the summer. 
This recipe could not be easier. 3 ingredients, plus your different colours of melting chocolate. I think the hardest and most frustrating part was that as the pops sat, after being dipped, some started to crack. Not sure why. I simply piped a small amount of chocolate on the cracks and went on with my work. Queenie wat…
