Chickpea Miso Gravy Bowl with Sweet and Tangy Portobello Mushrooms

Sometimes I feel like I have a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other this time of year. The devil tells me to eat ALL the cookies, chocolates, and treats (you know…#allthethings) while the angel reminds me how much better I feel when I’m eating ALL the rainbow. [I told Eric this, […]

Life with a Baby: Weeks 10-11

Before I get into this recap, I thought I’d tell you about my labour music story. During my pregnancy, I always read about other mama-to-be’s making a playlist on their ipods so they’d have music to listen to during labour. Genius, I thought. I need one too. And so I used my pregnancy card for […]

Life with a Baby: Week 12

  Holy moly, our baby girl is 12 weeks old! These have been the absolute best, and most challenging/trying, 12 weeks of my life…but I wouldn’t change a thing. (Ok, maybe I would’ve changed the first 6 weeks of breastfeeding, sleepless nights, but oh well). I honestly never knew how amazing motherhood would be and […]

I’ve been testing all kinds of Christmas cookies this year and I decided to pick the best of the bunch and share that recipe with you before the holidays. The humble-looking Snickerdoodle doesn’t get enough respect in my opinion; it’s often overshadowed […]

Pink and Gray Baby Girl Nursery Tour

After going back and forth many times on how to decorate Adriana’s nursery (check out the variety of styles on my Pinterest board!), I finally settled on this soft pink and gray theme. It’s whimsical, airy, and feminine which is exactly how I hoped it would turn out. Well, that’s after I changed my mind […]

Life with a Baby: Week 13

  Adriana has laughed a little bit before, but it was only very short ones here and there (and they sounded more like screams of joy), but this week we managed to make her howl with laughter! Oh my gosh, it was the funniest thing I’ve ever heard. We were just sitting there laughing at […]

Christmas 2014 (Week 14)

  We survived our first Christmas as a family of three! Not only did we survive, we managed to have a blast visiting my family in Alberta. It’s so true that having a child makes the holidays extra special. Knowing they are experiencing everything for the first time is pretty cool and I found myself […]

Superfood Crunch Salad with Homemade Balsamic Apple Vinaigrette

This past year was easily my most memorable on record. It started with finding out we were expecting early in January, then it was a move and a several month house renovation (I do not recommend this while pregnant, hah), my first cookbook released in March, September brought the birth of our baby girl, and […]
