Banana bread for cross country skiing trip

bananabreadfrontFor our upcoming cross-country ski trip our oldest decided that she was going to make banana bread to bring along and she was going to make it herself.

When I lived in Norway I decided to make up a batch and see what it was all about. Well, I though I did something wrong or something was bad, as it tasted strange and was not my cup of tea. Then years later I tried someone else’s banana bread and I realized… no, that is what banana bread tastes like. Since there were many other cakes and treats in the world I liked, I never looked back.

Camp food fun for kids

girl by the lake We had a wonderful camping trip at Pukaskwa National Park. It was everything I was longing for. It got us lots of wilderness and some great hiking opportunities. Though I love to be outside in the city, I love to get outdoors in the wilderness. (I live in the fourth largest city in North America) Add a comment

Making a camp kitchen, menu planning and food storage

You might think I’m going camping every weekend, I have to disappoint you, I’m outside every day but camping is not every weekend for my family, and me. I am more into backcountry cabin living than in a tent.

Don’t get my wrong, I love the wilderness and I’m not afraid of the backcountry but it is all the organizing involved with camping that drives me crazy. But I can’t take it any more. After spending a summer outdoor in the city, I have to have my nature fix.

Backyard Party: Key Lime pie

Last weekend we celebrated my birthday, yes it was the big 4-0. I decided to have backyard party with kids and adults, as most of our friends have small kids like we do. We also just finished our tree house and play space (we still have some more shelves to add to our mud pie kitchen) so the kids will have something to do in our backyard.
