I can scarcely believe it, but Humblebee & Me is three today. I can’t believe it’s been over 1000 days since I launched this site with eager expectations of the world immediately flocking to the three recipes I had online. A lot has changed since then, and I’m super excited that people actually want to read my recipes and try my projects with me 🙂

I’ve published over 600 entries (this is #648!), but these are the ones I’m excited about right now.
I’m not usually a salsa person. It’s not that I have anything against a delicious combination of tomatoes, onions, and other goodies, it’s just that they’re often not that… delicious.

This pizza was born out of warm-weather induced necessity after a trip to my favourite fruit & veg stand. I had fresh BC arugula, a new (used) KitchenAid stand mixer to test out, and some beautiful squishy pizza mozzarella.
This delicious porridge comes together in a flash and is part healthy, whole-grain brekkie, and part apple pie. It’s a great breakfast for a chilly weekend morning, and it’s a brilliant way to use up any apples that are starting to go a bit wrinkly on you.
