I am super excited about the upcoming holiday season. I am already plotting my meals for the cold nights ahead, and Thanksgiving menu ideas have been long taking up space in the far back regions of my noggin. It's nice to sip up dessert in a cup. Feels naughty and nice all at the same time, right? Well, I'm here to tell you that you can have your cake -- err, pie -- and drink it too! Just make it at home and avoid all those nasty added sugars and fake fillers! Here's how.
Hot, hot heat is exactly what my body craves. This, a fact I found to be true the very first time I stepped off a plane in Costa Rica. The wall of thick, sticky calidity that greeted me on that tarmac served as welcome to both body and soul. And now, in true easy-breezy Costa Rican style, I present a delightfully simple treat, a true taste of the tropics, my coconut-apricot chews.
During a long weekend in Toronto, everything here seems to slow down, calm down, and allow for maximum staycation bliss. So, what's on my agenda? Breakfast. Well, breakfast bars to be exact, and these chewy tropical treats are just the thing to fuel me through a long to-do list. Plus, the recipe will leave plenty of leftovers to pack for the road, and snack on all week long!
