7 Foods I’m Loving Right Now

IMG_00011

When I was a child, I only wanted to wear my two favourite outfits. One of them was a neon pink and green spandex short and tank top combo and the other was a neon pink polka dot legging/skirt and t-shirt combo. Might I add, accessorized with a scrunchie, snap-on bracelet, and HIGH TOP kicks. […]

IMG_2523

It’s official: I’m hooked on 5k races! My second 5k race is under my belt…err…bib, after yesterday’s Frosty 5k race in Burlington. I had such a blast. There was also a half marathon going down…kudos to the brave souls who ran it yesterday! Unlike my last 5k race a few weeks ago, the skies were […]

Citrus Beet Salad with Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing

IMG_7906

  I’m a recent beet fan, however I can’t say I’ve made much time to cook with them. They just always seem like such a pain in the butt to prepare and cook, don’t they? The peeling, the red stains, the roots, the dirt. Bah. I used to pass them by for easier-to-prepare vegetables, even […]

IMG_7738

It’s a dreary, rainy Thursday morning, so I can safely assume that you’re probably thinking about the weekend, including the food you want to make. Am I right or am I right? Enter pancakes. Pancakes are quite possibly one of the easiest things to prepare on a weekend. Any food that can be prepared successfully […]

Happy Friday! Just a quick note about the pancake recipe I posted yesterday. I tried the pancakes this morning using a couple different methods after a reader mentioned the pancakes stuck to the pan after making a couple small substitutions. I went back into the kitchen to see if I could figure out why the […]

Easy Lemon Dill Tofu

IMG_8175

I really can’t believe that I went all these years without tofu in my life. I was under the impression that tofu gave me horrible stomach pains whenever I ate it, so that was the main reason for avoiding it. I recently discovered it doesn’t seem to bother my stomach like I thought. When you […]

Easy St. Patrick’s Day Appetizer: Sneaky Shamrock Spinach C...

IMG_8198

This has to be one of the easiest green recipes I’ve ever made, aside from the Green Monster. I’ve wanted to make green crackers for a while now, using spinach for the lovely green colour and burst of nutrition. Attempt #1 was adapting the gluten-free crackers with spinach. The dough was super sticky and it […]

The Jig Is Up!

IMG_7840-2

    Today is a bittersweet day…we’re moving into a new home! Just over a year ago, Eric and I decided that we wanted to move because his commute just got to be too much for him. He spent 3.5 hours every day commuting to and from Toronto and it was making him miserable. He […]

We’re Moving: Part II

IMG_2694

This is the 18th time I’ve moved in 28 years. [Thanks to my mom and Kristi for counting our moves last night!] Among those 18 moves, I lived New Brunswick, Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, and Ontario. We moved a lot when I was growing up because of my dad’s various sales jobs, so moving really […]
