Happy Tuesday, everyone! We are finally back home in Toronto, after spending nearly 2 months down in Florida visiting with family! As nice as it was to be surrounded by family for so long, it’s definitely relieving to finally be back home in our own place, with our own bed, and of course, all of my own equipment and supplies LOL.
This week I’m sharing a super easy treat that hubby and I made last night when we were looking for something to feed our sweet tooth. I haven’t had a chance to do our grocery shopping yet, so whatever we had in the house was a few things we picked up from the neighborhood store on our way home from the airport.
It’s only 2 ingredients – berries and chocolate. Just take a small piece of chocolate and sandwich it between 2 berries, and pop it in your mouth. That’s it! Super easy, super tasty, and if you’re eating organic, dark chocolate, it’s also guilt-free! As long as you don’t have too many…
Do you have any go-to quick snacks or treats for when the sweet (or salty) tooth hits?
It’s Tiny Tip Tuesday!
Now for the blog hop! If you missed last week’s party, head on over to check out some of those awesome tips!
Here are this week’s featured links:
The #1 Link:
Jan from The Nerdy Farm Wife shared this awesome list of 14 ways to use ground ginger. This is great for those who may be a little intimidated by posts which call for exotic-sounding herbs or spices. Ground ginger is found in every grocery store and has so many uses and health benefits!

Welcome back everyone, and Happy November! We took a short break last week, partly because of the storm, and partly because I just felt like taking a week off but we’re back and ready to roll this week! I hope all of our friends in the northeast are holding up well, in the light of the storm damage – hugs and prayers are going out your way!
This week, I want to get November started off with my Top 5 picks of the best looking Pumpkin recipes floating around out there in blog-land. I’m a little obsessed with all things pumpkin, but I promised myself I would try to stay away from posting an actual pumpkin recipe. So I figured the best way to feed my pumpkin obsession is to share some of the yummy recipes I’ve found online in the past few weeks!
OMG you guys, I just discovered the most amazing thing I’ve seen in a really long time! The second I heard about this, I went and tried it immediately! And when it worked like a charm, I knew exactly what I would share with you this week on Tiny Tip Tuesday!
Enter this list of 22 things you’re doing wrong that I ran across on Facebook last week. It’s a pretty cool list actually, if you want to check it out.
But the thing that stuck out the most to me was the tip on slicing those small cherry/grape tomatoes. If you’re like me, you’ve been slicing those babies one by one, and never even thought twice about it – so I’m here to tell you, we’ve been doing it wrong all along!
Let me ask you one question:
Do you believe you have the right to know what’s in your food?
If you’re reading this blog, I hope very much that you’ve answered with a big fat YES!
If you haven’t yet heard about Prop 37, here’s everything you need to know:
Prop 37 empowers us to make the right choice for our families, by providing a simple label to tell us if our food has been genetically engineered or not.
Simple as that! Well, sort of… You see, labeling our food would put a lot of large pesticide and junk food companies at risk of having to expose themselves for what they truly are – companies that make false claims about the safety of their products.
So it’s no surprise that there’s a lot of power (and a lot of money) being poured into the campaign against labeling our food! Not only that, but their campaign has been spewing out complete and utter falsehoods about what Prop 37 would mean for everyone – not surprising considering the main contributors of the campaign are companies like Monsanto and DuPont.
Hey, look at me! I got a new Tiny Tip for you this week! I haven’t shared a real tip with you since we’ve been back from our hiatus, so it feels good to be getting back in the tip-sharing saddle!
This week’s tip is super easy, and super helpful. I came across it on Pinterest a few months ago, but never tried it until recently. I don’t know why I waited so long because it’s one of the most useful tips I’ve come across in so long!
Ok, you ready? Alright, to keep your pot of water from boiling over, simply place a wooden spoon across the top of the pot. That’s it!
