I don’t consider myself the most tech-savvy person, but I do have a few tricks up my sleeve from time to time.

homemade maple cream (maple butter)-1451

You know when someone asks what you’d want to eat for your last meal? I never know what the heck to say. Umm, everything?! There are really so many foods I adore, such as this maple butter. To be honest, I’d love nothing more than a huge vat of maple butter on my death bed. […]

oil free vegan choclate zucchini muffins-3068

I never considered myself a big zucchini fan until this summer. Farmer’s market zucchini is what really sold me; before then, I could take it or leave it. I was used to buying small, shriveled up zucchini from the grocery store, so when I tried freshly picked zucchini it was a game changer. My favourite […]

Well, I didn’t end up making the Itty Bitty Carrot Cake Cookies, but I did end up making an off-spring!   Meet the carrot cake cookie in breakfast form. I cut down the oil (using applesauce to replace some of it) and amped up the protein, fibre, and healthy fats naturally using ground flax. In […]

Last weekend, I found myself at the Farmer’s Market ogling fresh blueberries. Before I left, Eric said, “Don’t bring back more than you can eat,” with a wink. This was surely a challenge. I left with 2 pounds of blueberries and the complete confidence that I would eat all of them. He obviously doesn’t realize […]

Man, I’m feeling bummed right now. I would guess that my mom is too based on her tears when I dropped her off at the airport this morning. She starts to cry, then I start to cry…it ain’t pretty! I think I even saw a nearby taxi driver shed a tear. We always have such […]
