Chia Strawberry Jam

Chia Strawberry Jam

Its Strawberry season and I can’t seem to get enough of these beautiful red fruits and turning them into jam! After making your first batch of homemade Chia Strawberry Jam, I promise you’ll never buy store bought again. It’s surprisingly easy and the flavor simply doesn’t compare. This Easy Chia Seed Strawberry Jam is the perfect healthy alternative. It’s made with only 4 ingredients, no refined sugar, no gelatin, no pectin. The chia seeds create a jam-like texture, the maple syrup brings just enough sweetness and it’s quick and easy to make. Enjoy!

LIME & MANDARINE BUNDT CAKE ​ ​​ ​

LIME & MANDARINE BUNDT CAKE ​  ​​ ​

Last week I received a fresh delivery including 2 new body wash fragrances from Le Petit Marseillais, (that both smell oh-so-amazing!) along with a beautiful wooden crate filled with juicy limes and mandarines! I’ve been wanting to do a citrus cake for a while and this was the perfect opportunity to come up with a healthier version of a lime cake drizzled with a mandarine glaze. After a few trials, a finally perfected this light, moist and citrusy treat that is really easy to whip up and pretty healthy for a cake recipe.  A perfect dessert for the whole family to enjoy or to impress your guests next time you are hosting! I will definitely have this on the table for Easter brunch this year!

Heart Shape pancakes for my valentines

Heart Shape pancakes for my valentines

On valentines day I always like to prepare something special for my boys and it often gravitates around brunch or breakfast. I love to make this day ultra special without being complicated. For me it’s all about creating memories, spending quality time together and having a little fun. I set up the table with little touches that are personalized and create an easy peasy menu that the boys will love. In our household, we can’t go wrong with pancakes, even better when served in a heart shape with little candies as a topping. This year Valentine’s day falls on a weekday but we can definitely make it special by setting up the table the night before (when the kiddos are in bed), placing little goodies on their chair and prepping my go-to pancake batter, in advance. With a bit of preparation, Valentine’s day will be as memorable this year, as if it would fall on a restful Sunday! Happy Valentine’s day everyone! -xo-
