Stove Top Spinach Artichoke Dip - Camping Recipe

Appetizer night while camping is always fun! And we all love Spinach Artichoke dip so I decided to make some! I didn't have a recipe and when I have made it in the past I've done a dairy free recipe that's pretty darn Good too! But this time I wanted cheese and creamy goodness so I picked up the essentials I figured I would need and decided I'd figure it out when I went to make it! 

Organic Baby spinach (small box) 
Large jar or marinated artichokes
Block of cream cheese
White cheddar 
Parmesan cheese
Garlic powder (in trailer)
Salt and pepper (in trailer)

I didn't have a baking dish with me in the trailer so I realized I wouldn't be able to bake it and I left my food processor at home this trip. So I decided to put all the ingredients into a pot and melt them down, then add in the spinach, artichokes and spices. 

Here are my measurements, which are very approximate but it will turn out:

1/2 cup of butter
1 block cream cheese
2 cups cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Melt these a together in a large pot. 

Then add in:
1 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped artichokes
Baby spinach

I let the mixture bubble and thicken slightly and then added in the artichokes and spinach. Once the spinach was wilted it was ready to go. 

As it cooled slightly the dip thickened right up and was quite yummy! 

I didn't take an after photo of the dip because it got eaten up pretty fast! But it made a huge batch and we also had leftovers for lunch today! 

I'm always trying to add new camping food ideas to my recipe book to keep it fun, healthy and tasty!

Cranberry Coconut Granola

I love making granola. It is fun to throw a bunch of stuff in a bowl and mix it up with local honey, organic coconut oil and homemade apple sauce!  The result after it has been baked slowly for several hours is amazing!  I love it!  I don't buy cereal for my family unless it's wheat puffs, cheerios or something with no sugar or crap in it ;)

Plus Granola is awesome on Greek Yogurt with Fruit! Especially raspberries!

Basically the base for my granola is oats, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, cinnamon, flour and then a mixture of honey, coconut oil and apple sauce. But I like to add whatever sounds good at the time or if Asher is helping, whatever he thinks sounds good!

So here is the recipe I used today:

Dry Mixture:
6 cups oats
1 1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/8 cup chia seeds
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup dried apples
1/4 cup flour (optional but it makes the clusters)

Wet mixture:
2/3 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil
2/3 cup apple sauce

Toss the dry mixture together in a large bowl.  Then mix the wet mixture in a 2-4 cup measuring cup and stir ingredients together until the coconut oil has been chopped up.

Now mix the wet mixture into the dry and blend the two together until there aren't any dusty parts and everything looks coated.  If you find that you still have a dusty looking mixture, just add in a bit more apple sauce.  I never measure anything when I'm making granola so the measurements above are by eye but I'm pretty good at eyeballing measurements!  

Now spread your mixture onto two baking sheets lined with parchment paper and bake at 250 degrees for about 2 hours.  Or until it starts to go golden brown and dries out.

Let it cool and then store in an air tight container.  It stores really well and will last up to and even longer than a month!


Camping with kids

I'm packing to leave for camping this weekend! 

We are lucky enough to have a big trailer which we can keep most of our camping stuff stored in through the spring and summer which makes packing up much easier.

However I still have to bring quite a bit of Kid stuff each time we go away so I'm making a list this time which I can refer to each time we go!

It seems like every time we have gone away so far I make a paper list and cross the items out, but the next trip I have to start a new list so here I'm making a basics list to refer to every trip! 

Here it goes:

Clothes for kids:
Jacket (in trailer)

Baby Stuff:
Bottle rack
bottle brush (in trailer)
Peanut shell sling and carrier
Highchair seat

makeup (this time because we are going to a wedding)
Hair dryer and straightener
extra towels

yoga pants
sweat pants
pj bottoms
tank tops
jacket (in trailer)

I'm sure I'll add to this list but these are the basics of what we need each time and I'll be glad to have this list again for next time we go away!

Have a great weekend everyone! 

30 Day Squat Challenge

It’s time to squat! This month I am hosting a a 30-Day Squat Challenge! Oh, stop your groaning! You will thank me when your showing off your booty and thighs in that swim suit next month!
The month will vary intensity on each day, and some days will be much harder than others. Rest days are provided every three days to give you a chance to let your muscles recoup.  These daily exercises are intended to supplement your current fitness routine. So don't count the squats in your workout into your daily total!
Stay aware of your form at all times! It’s quality, not quantity that counts. If you find the daily total too difficult to achieve, just do as many as you can, or break it up into smaller sets. Think the challenge is too easy? Add in weights or a kettlebell! This workout is for YOU. Challenge yourself, but not to the point of injury.
This how to video by Autumn Calabrese Beachbody trainer will help you with your perfect Squat form!  Check it out!

Trying a new whole food - Farro!

I've never tried Farro but I'm planning to try it this week!

But What is Farro???

Farro is touted to be amongst the healthiest grains there is. It is a type of wheat that is very popular in Italy and is rather versatile - you can have it hot or cold, in salads, to give soups some bite, as a side dish or with beans, wheat and other vegetables. And, like quinoa, it can take on the flavor of almost any mix-in or dressing.

There are many health benefits of this power grain… 

  • Twice the fibre and protein than modern wheat
  • Rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, lignans and betaine
  • Rich in Magnesium 
  • and vitamins A, B, C and E.
This is a great article on the history of Farro and how to best cook it!

I've searched for a few recipes that I might like to try and located this one on the Rachel Ray website...

Farro with Asparagus, Hazelnuts, and Kale topped with roasted mushrooms

Grocery list:
1 1/4 cups Farro, pearled
1 1/2 pounds mixed mushrooms (shiitake, crimini, brown)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fresh Thyme
Freshly Ground Black pepper
3-4 Cloves or garlic
2 Shallots
1 bundle thin asparagus
1 bundle flat tuscan kale
dry sherry or marsala
chopped hazelnuts
lemon juice
Sherry vinegar (optional)

I can't wait to try Farro and am considering trying this recipe on Wednesday night.  Although Gord isn't a fan of Mushrooms, at least I can just leave them off the top of his!

Either that or I will be making this Farro Cranberry and Goat Cheese Salad for our Camping trip:

This recipe is from Lifesambrosia and looks so simple and delicious!  Can't wait to try it!

Also on the same website I found this yummy sounding meal... which I think Gord might actually like better than the first one if I remove the Shrimp!

Farro with Shrimp Bacon and Mushroom with Spinach

I hope some of these recipes inspired you to try this grain too!

Days 28-30 or the 30 day cleaning challenge

I've been a bad blogger!  But I wanted to finish off posting about this challenge!  Last weekend I finished the challenge and did a big clean on the Sunday the last day of the challenge.  I cleaned out bedroom (day 28), cleaned some of the kitchen cupboards (day 29) and cleaned all the floors in the house (day 30) in addition to cleaning the bathroom, finishing a ton of laundry and cleaning the kitchen!

Gord took the boys outside to play that day for an hour or so and I got a ton done!  Love that!!

This weekend we are celebrating Fraser's First Birthday!!  The little premie boy turned One on Wednesday!  

Week 5 - 10 Weeks of Real food Mini Pledges

Week 5 is here!  This week I'm going to challenge each of you to try two new whole foods that you have never had before!

Whole foods are considered a food item which only has one ingredient and is not processed or refined.  For example:  Peach, Potato, brown rice, broccoli these are all whole foods.  Here are some  whole foods which is less common:

  • Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”)
  • Barley
  • Parsnips
  • Kale
  • Collard greens
  • Steel cut oats
  • Papaya
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Black-eyed peas
  • Chickpeas
  • Bok choy
  • Swiss chard
  • Radicchio (pronounced “rah-DEE-kee-oh”)
  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Watercress
  • Dates
  • Kiwi
  • Eggplant
  • Pomegranate (and having the juice in a martini does not count!)
  • Fava beans
  • Lentils
  • Spelt
  • Pinenuts
  • Star fruit
  • Dragon Fruit
  • Blood oranges
I haven't even tried all of these and this is certainly not a complete list but I challenge each of you to take this weeks pledge to try two new whole foods that you have never tried before and post which you have tried either here in the comments or in the Facebook group!

Week 4 - 10 Weeks of Real Food Pledges

Here is this coming week’s pledge that officially starts on Monday:
Week 4:  No fast food or any foods that have been deep-fried in oil.
For this challenge you must avoid:
  • Restaurants with drive-thru windows
  • Convenience stores that also typically sell gas
  • Places where you watch them assemble your food through a glass wall
  • Restaurants that are situated in a “food court” setting
  • School lunches (most schools do not have a fully functioning kitchen and simply heat precooked meals)
  • Airplane food
The places where you can eat during this challenge:
  • Restaurants with waiter service (which aren’t always ideal when it comes to food quality, but we just had to draw the line somewhere)
  • Grocery stores (try a greek salad from the deli, or brown rice sushi)
  • Your own kitchen!
  • Friends’ houses
Even while you are eating at the “allowed” places you must still of course avoid deep-fried foods, which is trickier than it sounds. If it is crunchy and crispy you might want to question it. 
Some other examples of foods to be on the lookout for:
  • French fries
  • Sweet potato fries
  • Potato/tortilla chips
  • Chicken fingers
  • Chicken wings
  • Donuts
  • Corn dogs
  • Egg rolls
The goal of this challenge is to force you to figure out alternatives to a Big Mac even when you are starving and on the go. And the key to success is planning ahead. Don’t wait until the last minute to figure out where and when you will have your next meal. Consider packing some whole food snacks to hold you over including bananas, apples, oranges, nuts, popcorn (with minimal oil/salt), dried fruit, store-bought Lara Bars, whole-grain crackers, cheese, fruit or veggie baggies etc. Also take the time to pack lunches for work, school, long car rides, and after a sporting event etc.
Just the other night I packed a quick picnic lunch to take down to the beach after Asher's lacrosse game.  It was nothing fancy, just some tuna sandwiches, carrots, water and grapes.  Super simple using what we had on hand, but it ensured that we wouldn't be tempted by the mcdonalds perfectly situated on the way to and from Juan de Fuca where most kids sporting events take place in our community!  I know it's a huge temptation especially when swimming or lacrosse start around 5 or 6pm, its difficult to get dinner into everyone early enough.  But I've been trying to plan ahead and either make a meal that can be quickly heated when we all get home or pack something for afterwards!  
It's all about the planning ahead!

Day 26 and 27 - 30 Day Cleaning Challenge - the new standard of clean

Yesterday's assignment was deep clean the kitchen.  I've sort of split the job up into two days but it's done now!  It feels great to pull everything out and clean behind the appliances and inside them!  But with baby bottles and other daily used items on the counter that just seem to have to stay there these days it still doesn't feel as tidy as I like my kitchen counters to be.  But what can ya do!

It seems like kids stuff is taking over... between art work and paper work for preschool and kindergarden it's getting a bit hairy!  Thank goodness for my calendar!  I love it!  Helps me keep things straight.  

I also seem to have a pile for work stuff and kid stuff at the corner of the counter in my "office area" right next to the printer!  I used to only bring the printer upstairs on occasion but lately I seem to need to way more often so I just leave it on the counter plugged in.  

Then there is the bag of coffee that could totally be put away in a cupboard but always seems to stay right next the the keurig.  
I had just picked up his toys and tidied them.
He woke up from a nap not 10 minutes later
and they are on the floor along with his lunch
Crumbs as Abbi is helping clean up!

What's a mom to do... Embrace it!  My life has changed so much!  Being a mom means just living with a bit of "stuff" hanging around.  Sure I still love my clean tidy counter tops, but lets be honest, I clean everything perfectly and within the hour the "Stuff" makes it's way back to the counter.  Or I clean up the toys and in no time there is a pile on the floor again.  That's my life.  

There are always dishes to wash, bottles to clean, babies to wipe up, floors to scrub (from that dropped banana on the floor), Shakeology powder to wipe up from after my husband makes his shake, the list goes on.  My kitchen just doesn't stay clean like it used to and I always seem to be in there doing something!  

I've got a new standard of clean and tidy now... if the cutting board is clean with only one or two items on or near it ~ tidy, if the bottles aren't piled up next to the sink to be washed ~ tidy, if there is only one fairly straight pile of papers, books and notes stacked by the printer ~ tidy, if the stove top is not crumbly or dusty from formula or Shakeology powder ~ tidy.  The list goes on.  

I wouldn't change it for the world, these boys keep me busy!
Crazy kid loves to eat on the counter, not at the counter!

Today's Assignment is:
  • Surface clean the bathroom
  • One load of laundry
I actually did the bathroom a few days ago cause it was getting nasty.  But I'll do it again this afternoon before Asher and I have our mommy and Asher date!

Tomorrow's assignment is:

  • Surface clean bedroom
  • one load of laundry
pft.... I did this today!  I rock!  But I'll do a tidy up of the bedroom again tomorrow because in this house, nothing stays clean or tidy!

Day 25 - 30 day Cleaning Challenge

Today's Assignment is:
  • Surface Clean Living room and Kitchen
  • One load of Laundry

Well... today we had a busy and fun morning!

We went to books for breakfast this morning and then right after met a friend at the park!  Since we have been home I've been plugging away at today's assignment in between feeding the kids lunch and putting together trial packs for my 10 day clean eating challenge that starts next week!!

I've started prepping the menu for the challenge but still have some work to do on it since it's a new one!  But i'm excited to start!

There is so much interest in the 21 day fix success groups  right now!  So I'm thinking I'll do two rounds back to back for those who have ordered recently since the first round begins on Tuesday!  I just love this program!  It's great for everyone because literally anyone can do these workouts and the nutrition guide is awesome! 

Well I'm going to go put the littlest stinker for a nap now!

Here is tomorrow's Cleaning Assignment
  • Deep Clean Kitchen (scrub appliances, wash trash cans, base boards, wipe down and straighten cabinets)
  • One Load of Laundry
I should be able to get this one done in the morning before preschool drop off!! I hope!

Day 24 - 30 Day Cleaning Challenge

Today's Assignment is:

One load of Laundry

Here is what I did:

Finished product:

Yesterday's Assignment was to clean all the floors!  through out the day I was able to sweep all the floors upstairs, but there wasn't anything picture worthy to blog about other than this pile of dirt!  

Exciting hey!!

Food Dyes in our food

A child who eats 2 cups of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, a small bag of Skittles, and 8 ounces of Crush Orange will consume 102 milligrams of artificial dye. Behavioral tests found as little as 30 mg can cause adverse reactions. Photo credit: Ariana Stone).

Part of our transition 4 years ago to eating what we call " Real Food" was eating white cheese not orange or marble cheeses.  Why?

Well because food dyes effect children's behaviour and orange cheddar cheese is only orange because it is dyed with food colouring!  Gross right!

It's totally unnecessary and can effect your children's behaviour!

It's not just cheese either!  So many processed foods contain food dyes even cereal that isn't colourful probably has orange or yellow dye.

This article talks about the importance companies labelling how much food dye is in their products and I think this would be a great eye opener to consumers! 

15 minute Dinner!

I just put together our dinner for tonight and it only took me 15 minutes!

  • Fast
  • Easy
  • Only 5 Ingredients 
  • All real food

Plus the leftovers from this dinner are amazing!!!

I had to stop making this dinner when I was dairy free, but now that I'm back eating cheese again I'm good to go!

15 Minute Enchilada Bake


1 pound Grass Fed Ground beef
Plain Greek Yogurt
Homemade Salsa (or any kind you have on hand)
Grated White Cheddar cheese (because orange has dye in it and that's nasty)
Whole wheat wraps

Brown the Ground beef in a large pan.
Once browned, add in about a cup to cup and a half of salsa until it's pretty saucy.

Now add a layer of your salsa and ground beef mixture to the bottom of a large pie dish or casserole dish.  Next add a whole wheat tortilla and press it down.  Add a layer of Salsa and Beef to the top of the tortilla and add a few dobbs of Greek Yogurt and sprinkle with cheese. Repeat on the next layer and then again for the top!


I wrapped mine up and put it in the fridge to reheat for tonight's dinner.  But you could always heat it up right away too!

Easy and YUM!

Day 22 - 30 days of cleaning challenge

Today's Assignment is:

  • Surface Clean Bedrooms
  • One load of laundry
Fraser is sleeping in the bedroom right now so I'll have to wait until he is up to do this assignment!  But I wanted to post today's assignment just in case anyone else might be doing the challenge along with me!

Today is Gord's day off so we are doing a house clean and probably more Gardening! Plus I've gotta fit my workout into the morning before we take Asher to preschool! I've already done my one load of laundry but will probably do an extra load or two today :)  

Hope everyone enjoys this beautiful sunny day!

Happy Mother's Day

It's Mothers Day!

This morning I got to sleep in.... sort of and then I came out of the bedroom to coffee and breakfast made for me.  After Breakfast I then shipped Asher and Gord off to do their Lacrosse team photos for 9am!

I'll be heading out shortly with my momma to take her for a coffee and walk around the garden centre!  It's the perfect day for it too.

I've already done my Assignment for Day 21 of the 30 day cleaning challenge which was:

  • Surface clean the bathrooms
  • One Load of Laundry
After Fraser's messy Breakfast I gave him a bath this morning and now he is napping!!  So I had to tidy up the bathroom anyways!  Love when the assignments match what is needed for that day.

Some day's life as a mom is wonderful and you feel thankful for your life and all the blessings you have.  But all Mother's have difficult days too.  Some day's the house is a mess and the kids are driving me crazy and I can't seem to get anything accomplished, but I know that the good days outshine the bad and know that our kids love us no matter what kind of day we are having!

It's so important that we take time for our selves whether it's 30 minutes to workout each day so you can feel energized and ready for the day, or a coffee date with a friend to get away and just be an adult for a while.  It's important to take time for ourselves.

I personally find that when I've made the time to workout in the morning I have more patience and energy to play with my boys throughout the day.

I hope each and every momma enjoys some time with their kids today but also a little me time as well!

Enjoy this beautiful day!

Day 18 & 19 - 30 Day Cleaning Challenge

Ok I admit it.... I've been enjoying my kids way too much and enjoying the sunshine and the opportunity to garden and be outside..... and I haven't done my jobs!  I mean I've kept the house clean and tidy but as for my last two assignments I've failed miserably!

Today was Mother's day lunch with Asher at his preschool and then we got home and it was a beautiful sunny afternoon so I took my boys outside to play and enjoy the day!  And then after dinner I went outside and gardened and caught up on yard work for two glorious hours!  Could I have done yesterdays assignment of cleaning all the remotes and light switches.... sure.  Could I have cleaned out the fridge and organized the cupboards tonight instead of baking my family a fresh batch of rhubarb muffins using rhubarb from the garden.... I guess!  But you know what?  I've had a great day and i'm sure the rain will return in a day or two and I'll catch up on those two assignments I skipped!  

Plus tomorrow's Assignment is:

- Surface Clean the living room and Kitchen

And I've already done that today.... so let's call it even and I'll do those missed assignments tomorrow K!

Check out a few highlights of my week!

The boys at strong start circle time :)

Week 3 - 10 weeks of Real food Mini Pledges

As week 2 comes to a close it's time to introduce the next mini pledge!  

Week 3 - Real Beverages
Beverages will be limited to coffee, tea, water, and milk (only naturally sweetened with a little honey or 100% pure maple syrup). One cup of juice will be allowed throughout the week, and wine (preferably red) will be allowed in moderation (an average of one drink per day). 

This might be of the more difficult pledges, but I realize that different things will be difficult for different people (depending on what your vices are!). So as you consider this next pledge please keep in mind that it is only for one week. I'll be giving up my weekly Starbucks tazo chai for this week which is my one vice and I know you can do this too! So here goes nothing… 
As you can see this means no Splenda (or sugar) in your coffee and it also means no pop. Can you (and your family) do it for seven days?
Sweetener Choices: The moral of the story is that all sweeteners (sugar, honey, maple syrup, raw sugar, brown sugar, etc.) are high in calories and low in nutrients. The artificial sweeteners that have no calories are just chemically created imitations invented in a lab somewhere…how’s that for appetizing? So no matter what kind of sweetener one uses we hope that it is, first of all, not an imitation and second of all, used in moderation. For this pledge we ask that you stick to honey and/or 100% pure maple syrup for your beverages for two reasons
  1. They are both (mostly) made in nature and slightly higher in nutrients than other sweeteners like refined white sugar.
  2. It is hard to find highly processed foods or beverages that have been sweetened with honey or maple syrup, and if you sweeten items yourself chances are you will put in a lot less than the factory. In our opinion sugar is way overdone in our society so while you can still have sugar in your food during this pledge we hope you can commit to at least keeping it out of your beverages (baby steps!).

Please note: Honey and pure maple syrup are more concentrated sweeteners than white sugar so you can use a little less.
Juice Restriction: Just like the sweeteners mentioned above natural fruit juice contains a concentrated amount of (natural) sugars, which again should be used in moderation. And while 100% natural fruit juice offers a great deal of nutrients and is highly recommended over a soda, it is not nearly as nutritious as eating the natural, raw, whole fruit itself. There is certainly nothing “wrong” with drinking fruit juice (as long as it is 100% real fruit juice and preferably organic), but we believe it is best used in moderation. Try displacing some cups of juice with something else like water, which most of us can never seem to get enough of.
Moderate Wine Consumption: In his book Michael Pollan suggests, “Have a glass of wine with dinner”  But Pollan does go on to say, “Drinking a little every day is better than drinking a lot on the weekends”. He also says “alcohol of any kind appears to reduce the risk of heart disease, but the polyphenols in red wine appear to have unique protective qualities.” So let’s take to heart Pollan’s research showing “abundant scientific evidence for the health benefits of alcohol” and not be afraid to enjoy a glass of red wine (in moderation!) with dinner this week.
Here are some beverage alternatives to consider during this pledge since most people like to cure one addiction with another…
  • Try a  naturally sweetened latte or coffee
  • Squeeze a little lemon in your water
  • Eat a few juicy grapes or oranges to help quench your thirst with something naturally sweet
  • Try offering your kids some naturally cold or hot chocolate milk
  • Mix a half a cup of juice with some water to help stretch your juice consumption throughout the week
  • Or just put a splash of juice in your water to add some flavor and make it last the whole week 
If you are addicted to Pop just think how much money you will save if you give it up since water (a far superior alternative) is free! My husband used to love pop and we would purchase a flat of it from the Superstore quite often!  Once we started eating only Real food we gave up pop completely and we only occasionally get a natural ginger ale from phillips brewing company!  In fact a few weekends ago while camping he asked me to purchase some Cola for him to have with his rye over the weekend and it felt very strange to be purchasing Coca Cola actually!  He didn't end up using the whole thing and came home with two full bottles of it. On his own he dumped the rest of it out when we got back!  I was floored but proud!

Day 15 - 30 Days of Cleaning - Surface Clean Living room and Kitchen

Today's Assignment was:

  • Surface clean living room and kitchen 
  • one load of laundry
Got it done this afternoon after we came home from Strong start and had lunch!  I'm trying to gert Fraser to skip his morning nap and hopefully take an extra long one around 12 noon.  He skipped his morning nap just fine and was passed out in the car on the way home before I even left the school parking lot, however he still only slept for 30 minutes!  I could tell though that he hadn't slept long enough and was ready for a second nap around 2pm.  While he was napping I quickly did my surface clean!

Kitchen before:

Water running to wash bottles.

After photos of the Kitchen:

Can't put my 21 day fix containers away, using them too much!

Before of the Living room/Play area

And the laundry basket ready to go down stairs for the last part of the assignment!

Fraser playing with the toys I left out!

Tomorrow's Assignment is:  

  • Deep clean bathroom (inside drawers, inside trash cans, mirror, mop, tub)
  • One load of laundry
