I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Extraordinary Apple Date Bread

It really is extraordinary! Not your everyday loaf. A little like fruitcake but hey don't click away fruitcake haters! Even you will like it!


1  1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
2 eggs
1 cup cold coffee
2 cups apples, chopped
1 cup dates, chopped
1 cup dried cranberries (or raisins)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp each salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice

First mix the sugar, oil, eggs and coffee together.
Next chop and mix the fruit and nuts then combine with the sugar mixture.

In a very large bowl mix the flour, baking soda, salt and spices together then pour in the wet ingredients. Stir until well combined then pour into 2 prepared loaf pans. I greased mine then lined with a piece of parchment paper.

Bake at 350F for 1 hour or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool completely before slicing.
