End of Summer Peach Apple Cobbler


Last weekend, I bought my last basket of Ontario peaches from the farmer’s market. From here on out, things like pears, apples, figs, grapes, beets, pumpkins, carrots, squash, and potatoes make their seasonal debut. But first, I wanted to make a farewell summer recipe using fresh peaches, a couple of the season’s first apples, and […]


Slow Cooker Apple Butter 911


I’ve always loved teaching. When I was a young girl, I used to play school with my stuffed animals and any friends that I could trick into being a student in my class. I made an Attendance List (the students didn’t always show up on time!) and I taught math, writing, art, and deep life […]


5 Favourite Hot Oatmeal Recipes


There’s a chill in the air. Actually, that’s a lie because it’s quite warm outside as I write this post. I’m in a tank top and shorts right now! Hardly Fall temperatures, but then again it’s still summer for another week. However, tomorrow morning is supposed to be a classic Fall morning- crisp, 8C, sunny, […]


Iron Woman Gingerbread Smoothie


Before I became a vegan, I never really put much thought into getting the proper amount of vitamins and minerals. When I was struggling with an eating disorder, I would restrict my calories to an unhealthy level, exercise intensely 7 days a week, and eat mostly processed ‘fat-free’ foods. When my body couldn’t take the […]


Chocolate Chunk Toffee Bars


Eric says I make my best recipes when I’m pmsing. Wait, is that a back-handed compliment? Errr… And how did he know I was pmsing? “Well,…remember the other night when you started to cry watching that wedding dress show…?” “When the Dad cries, everyone cries.” “…and the other day, I caught you with chocolate all […]


Zucchini Bread Oatmeal


Brrr…it’s a chilly morning in our neck of the woods! I woke up around 6am absolutely freezing, so I closed the window and pulled on the blanket that was at the end of the bed. I had another 45 minutes of cozy, warm sleep with Sketchie cuddled at my feet and Eric by my side. […]


Chocolate Cake Batter Smoothie


Sometimes a girl just needs a bowl of chocolate cake batter all to herself. There I said it. And not feel the least bit insane.   We’ve been spending every spare moment working on the house and I’m starting to go a bit crazy. More than usual. I don’t know when Date Night became Friday […]

Carrot Cake Raw Buckwheat Porridge & Sugar-Free ‘Carob Puff’ Cereal


Dear Breakfast, Why did I ever skip you and deem myself unworthy to enjoy you? You really light up my day. You make morning workouts more enjoyable. You challenge me to make you quick, but still delicious. You sometimes taste like cake. Awesome. Sometimes you taste like pie. Yes. You complete me. Never shall we […]


Quick and Easy Kid-Friendly Snack & Meal Ideas


‘”Mommy, guess who is very busy right now?” “Who?” “Auntie Angie is very busy right now.” “Oh really?” “Yes. She’s busy baking us all kinds of treats! heheh” Clearly, my nephew Ethan has been reading my blog! He said that to Kristi as they were flying to Ontario this weekend. And he was right; it […]
