The Weekend Snapshots : Food, Food, Randomness, and more Food

20120521_151147

You know a weekend was fun when you wake up on Monday morning feeling like you need to sleep for 53 hours. (That’s also the sign of a good vacation!) It’s the classic weekend hangover and it often lingers well into Tuesday. My solution is to relive random phone photos, creep other people’s weekend on […]

Adzuki Bean & Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad with a Twist

IMG_0428-2

Last week, I had a meeting downtown and it was the perfect excuse to grab a bite to eat at Fresh restaurant. Whenever I’m in the city I try to pop in for a meal, even if that means eating an early dinner at 4pm and hitting rush hour traffic on the way home. It’s […]

Summer Fever Strawberry Lime Granita…just 4-ingredients!

IMG_0494

Eric thinks I’m getting senile. I would have to agree…when it comes to certain things. Like limes. We were unloading groceries the other day when he came across a huge stash of limes buried deep in the crisper. "Why on earth are you hoarding limes?"  he asked holding up this huge bag of limes as […]

Spicy Potato ‘n Black Bean Burritos

IMG_0553

My potato kick is still going strong. It started innocently enough with my Chocolate Chip Cookie Pota’Dough Dip and since then I’ve fallen in love with potatoes all over again. They are so filling and comforting! I don’t know why I ever fell off the potato bandwagon. If I had a dime for everytime I […]

As much as I love dining at Fresh restaurant, trying new-to-me vegan restaurants is one of my favourite things to do, especially if it is close by. Enter The Naked Sprout – Burlington’s (mostly) organic, raw & cooked, vegan, and gluten-free restaurant. It’s a 15 minute drive from me, making it the closest vegan restaurant […]

Layered Raw Taco Salad for Two

IMG_0645

If you ever find yourself in a salad rut, this raw taco salad is a great way to break out of it. Hearty and flavourful, every bite is a fiesta in your mouth. It’s a bit (ok, a lot) different from the taco salad of my youth, but certainly no less tasty! My inspiration comes […]

Easy Overnight Buckwheat Parfait

IMG_0790

All of these warm spring mornings have brought back my cravings for no-cook parfaits. Parfaits are one of my favourite summer foods because they are virtually effortless, don’t require a stove, and are different every time I make them. Lately, I’ve been enjoying this breakfast quite a bit and it only dawned on me recently […]

Sneaky Red Lentil “Hummus” & Kitchen Sink Veggie ...

IMG_0758

Yesterday, I somehow found myself depleted of my hummus stash, which let me tell you, I rarely let happen. Hummus addicts must have a stash at all times! Normally, I wouldn’t be able to blame Eric for this one, but he has recently fallen in love with hummus after years of me pestering him to […]

A Hiking Trip in Hamilton, Ontario: Webster and Tews Falls + Our ...

IMG_0814

This weekend Eric and I went on a hiking adventure in Hamilton with our cameras, backpacks, and tripod in tote. I totally underestimated how tiring lugging 10 pounds of camera equipment would be while fumbling all over steep trails. Somehow I didn’t wipe out despite wearing my 5 year old sneakers with the soles worn […]
