Strawberry Banana Loaf Recipe

Strawberry Banana Loaf Recipe

My kids and I absolutely love banana bread. We make it regularly and my boys are constantly asking to help me bake some. I thought I would mix it up a bit this morning and created a strawberry banana loaf recipe. Very quick and easy to make. It is also a great way to use up bananas when you don’t have enough for a regular banana bread. This new recipe was a huge success with my family.   Strawberry Banana Loaf Recipe   Print Prep time 10 mins Cook time 1 hour Total time 1 hour 10 mins   Author:… » Continue Reading

Hiking Mont Pinacle, Coaticook Quebec

Fit Family Feature #45 (Smitha)

Fit Family Feature #45 (Smitha)

This weekly post series for Country Fit Family is called Fit Family Feature. In this series I will be interviewing fellow fit parents about what they do for exercise and how they make time for fitness in their busy lives.  I know as parents we are always pressed for time and are often exhausted at the end of the day. Working out is usually the last thing on our to-do lists. I am hoping the Fit Family Features will showcase how other parents are managing and perhaps inspire others to get active.     In this week’s Fit Family Feature, I am interviewing… » Continue Reading

Hiking Mount Adams and Mount Madison in New Hampshire

Hiking Mount Adams and Mount Madison in New Hampshire

My friend Monica and I are on a mission to hike all of the 4000 Footers of New Hampshire. We discovered there were 48 such mountains after we climbed Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast, in July 2014 while we were training to run our first marathon. You can read about the 6 other mountains we have climbed here.  We are making good progress on the list since we live in Quebec, Canada which is over 2 hours away from the mountains we are determined to climb. We have wanted to climb Mount Adams for quite awhile. Whenever we… » Continue Reading

Coaticook QC Half Marathon 2015 Race Recap

Coaticook QC Half Marathon 2015 Race Recap

On Sunday, August 2nd 2015, I ran the Coaticook Half-Marathon also known as Demi-Marathon de la ville de Coaticook. It is the second year for this race. They offered a 21.1km, 10km, 5km and a kids’ 1km race. I was excited to run this half-marathon since I had never run in Coaticook even though I only live 30 minutes away.     I convinced my friend Monica to run this race with me. She is in the middle of marathon training and her long run for the weekend called for 21km, so she signed up the day before the race and… » Continue Reading
