IMG_7278

There was once a time in my life when I sat through long, cold football games pretending to know what the hell was going on. After uprooting my life in New Brunswick and moving to Ontario with my mom, I was the new girl at a new high school where I met the man I […]

[image source] Green came to be thanks to vegan chef Damon Brasch and his 10-year long dream to open a vegan restaurant. He wanted to create a vegan restaurant where anyone could enjoy the food, not just the veg crowd. The fare is what Brasch likes to call “New American Vegetarian”, which is mostly American […]

Dark Chocolate Cherry Walnut Truffles

IMG_7346

I was at Bulk Barn last week to pick up hemp seeds and I left with various red and pink mini cupcake liners, dried cherries, red heart tins, hearts on a stick, and V-Day heart tags. You know, baking “construction materials”. Gag me. I tell ya, I embarrass myself sometimes. Oh, and I forgot the […]

A few months ago, I told you that I was in talks with publishers about my cookbook proposal and today I can finally tell you the news after sitting on it for a few weeks. I’m thrilled to tell you I will be writing my first cookbook! Without a doubt, none of this would be […]

“Battered” Fried Chickpeas & Chickpea Basil Pesto

IMG_7431

This battered chickpea recipe happened completely by accident. Accidents don’t usually happen in my kitchen, unless we’re talking about the bad kind. Like when my processor exploded while making this pesto… Or when the blender decided to erupt, exploding Green Monster lava all over the kitchen. Or those (many) times when I plugged in the […]

Have you ever had a hobby or activity that you love and let it get away for a while? And a lot of time goes by and you start to wonder if you’ll ever get back into it? That’s sort of what happened to me with running races. In 2009, I got hooked on races […]

Old Man Winter Vs. Heart of Gold

IMG_2296

Leave it to Old Man Winter to arrive promptly before my first race in almost 16 months. Impeccable timing, Old Man. I swear, it was mild and there was no snow on the ground when I booked the race. As soon as I booked, a storm moved in on the weekend and the temperature plummeted. […]

Vegan Cookie Dough Freezer Fudge

Lucky for you, patience is not my strong suit. I made this recipe a while ago with grand plans to save it for the cookbook, but I really couldn’t keep it to myself any longer. Especially on Valentine’s Day. That would just be cruel. It all began when I saw an incredible looking cookie dough […]

Whole Foods Inspired Layered Salad with Orange Ginger Dressing

IMG_7490

Remember this fun layered salad I had from Whole Foods while in Arizona?   I believe I said, “Mark my words, this will be the first thing I make when I’m on Canadian soil.” Ok, so it wasn’t technically the first thing I made (not even close if you could see all the recipe testing […]

Busting Boredom on the Treadmill: 5 Mile & 5km Workouts

IMG_7593

When I hear the word treadmill, a few words come to mind: Boring. Repetitive. Dull. Auto-repeat. Nooooooooooooooooooo. You too? My reaction is mostly because I tend to fall into major treadmill ruts. I’ve recently discovered if I don’t consciously make an effort to create interesting treadmill workouts, then I really only have myself to blame […]
