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.

Lemonade Stand : Strawberry lemonade

I have to admit I did not grow up with lemonade stands. Lucky for me Lenore with Free Range Kids told me in a vlog how not to make a lemonade stand.  When my daughter and her friend asked me to help them with making their lemonade for their stand I helped them find a recipe, they did most of the mixing and made the stand and sign themselves.
