Thursday Pick-Me-Up! Chia Seed Pudding With Blackberries, Honey & Pecans

orange banner blog post

Happy Thursday! I’ve created a lovely Pick-Me-Up snack for today. I don’t eat enough blackberries and I really love them. This is a delicious one if you love chia seed pudding. I hope you try it out.



4 Tbs White Chia Seeds I use PRANA

1 Cup of milk (You can use what ever milk you like)

2 Tbs of Honey

6 oz of  blackberries

1 mandarin

A handful chopped up pecans for the topping.

This makes three servings.


How to make it:

  1. Mix chia seeds in a bowl with milk and honey. Mix very well.
  2. Pour it in three small bowls. Place the bowls in the fridge and let it thicken. It should take a couple of hours but I leave mine overnight.
  3. Wash the blackberries and add them on top.
  4. Add a sprinkle of pecans.
  5. Peel mandarin and add a couple to each bowl.
  6. Top it with a drizzle of more honey.

Delicious and Delectable Cookies! The Finer Cookie

banner christmas


I won a lovely box of cookies from The Finer Cookie.  The lovely Little Life Box on Instagram was hosting a giveaway and I won! I wanted to share how beautiful these cookies are and how delicious they taste. I didn’t have to write a blog post about them but I feel it’s a MUST! I feel this is the perfect gift for the holidays.  The yummiest gift for your self and for others. If you don’t have time to bake this is totally perfect. Nothing is better then home made, delicious, mouth watering cookies. You can also buy these and freeze them in time for Christmas. That’s not the case with me though because I dug into these cookies fast. See how this picture has three yellow lemon Macarons? Well there’s supposed to be four!  They are so yummy!


The box arrived in an insulated cooling bag with ice. Everything was packaged perfectly. The Finer Cookie Corporation bakes its cookies in a shared kitchen that meets the Canadian and Provincial regulations for health, safety and sanitation. The package came with information about each cookie batch and the ingredients. Everything in this box smells like being in a pretty and cute patisserie! I love how everything is labeled. I appreciate hand written labels. Makes it so special don’t you think?


I kindly received the Deluxe, Posh and Swank Cookie Sampler. It has Lemon Macarons, Peanut Butter Cream Cookies, Orange Truffles, Maple Madeleines, Bacon Fat Gingersnaps, and Chocolate Shortbreads with Malted Milk Buttercream. Heavenly and so mouth watering!


The Lemon Macarons are citrusy and have that little crunch with sweetness. They taste and smell divine!

19My mouth waters when I think of them. The Peanut Butter Cream Cookies have a lovely crunchy texture. These are perfect to dip in coffee, tea and milk. Each cookie has the most delicious and flavourful filling ever! Divine!


The Orange Truffles are very smooth, creamy and melt in the mouth. They are not too sweet, which I like. They taste like creamsicle popsicles. Orange yummy flavour with a little tartness.


The Maple Madeleines are just perfect. They are soft and spongy, not too sweet. Very delicious! These are the perfect tea cookie because the flavour is not strong but subtle.


The Bacon Fat Gingersnaps are perfect! Not too much bacon flavour and just the right snap and ginger. They have the right crunch. Perfect explosion of cinnamon flavour when immersed in a drink and then in the mouth. Yummo!


The Chocolate Shortbreads with malted Milk Buttercream are delicious! They have the perfect consistency and taste. They have the right amount of chocolate and the Malted Buttercream compliments the Shortbread so nicely. A match made in heaven!


My favourite cookies in this box have to be the peanut butter cream cookies, the lemon macarons and the chocolate shortbread. My youngest daughter Angelina, age 5, loves the gingersnaps and maple madeleines. My eldest daughter Eleni, age 10, loves the chocolate shortbread with malted milk buttercream. Hubby Loves the bacon fat gingersnaps and the orange truffles. One day later and these cookies are almost gone. I highly recommend you check out The Finer Cookie. Truly wonderful! My family really loves the cookies!

I’m truly grateful that I won this amazing box. My family and I enjoyed every bite!

Thank you to Little Life Box for hosting the giveaway on their Instagram and thank you again to The Finer Cookie for the best cookies ever!
