8 Things I’m Loving Lately – The Food, Cosmetics, & Hockey Edition


Two of these posts in less than 1 month? I’m on a roll. Spring, I love everything about you. Let’s get right down to business! 1. Desert Essence Body Wash. This is my new favourite body wash – well, I can’t decide between the Vanilla Chai and Almond scents because they are both delightful. The […]


Ramblings + A Trio of Cookbooks Giveaway Winner!


The good news is that my manuscript is submitted to my editor. All 258 pages of it. Holy Crap, holy, crap, holy crap, is what I said to myself when I uploaded it yesterday. I was sweating and my heart was beating fast. This is by far the biggest project I’ve ever taken on, the […]


A Trio of Cookbooks Giveaway!


I never thought I’d say this, but I’m in the final days of finishing my cookbook manuscript and handing it in to my editor. After 15 months of testing recipes, writing, and shooting photography, I finally feel like things are coming together. Very, very slowly, mind you. I’ve shot about 50 recipe photographs so far, […]


Banana Bread Protein Bars


Whenever my heart feels heavy, lost, or confused I tend to turn to the kitchen to distract myself. Seeking comfort in food isn’t as bad as those ridiculous diet magazines make it out to be. Food can bring us all together and make us pause to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Sometimes, a big […]


Warm Spring Salad


Behold, non-wimpy asparagus! Normally I don’t consider asparagus to be one of the most exciting vegetables, but it always surprises me every time I make it. I enjoy it way more than I think I do. A simple, light sauté leaves it tender, but still crisp and fresh. I find it turns out best when […]


8 Things I’m Loving Lately – Spring Edition!


It’s hard to believe that it’s been 4 months since my last things I’m loving lately post. Apparently, I wasn’t too excited over anything in the winter! Not surprising. Here are a handful of things I’m loving lately…feel free to share yours below too. 1. Goji Berries in smoothies I don’t buy goji berries often […]


Black Bean and Potato Nacho Plate


This is the meal to make when you have no idea what to make. Or when winter is over, but spring produce still hasn’t peaked (I’m looking at you, wimpy asparagus!). This is the meal to make when you just want to devour a huge plate of nachos and call it dinner. Or lunch. Breakfast. […]


The Flavor Bible + Giveaway Winners


Chances are if you are a food blogger, avid home cook, or chef you might have already heard of, or even own, The Flavor Bible. I bought this book last year and I’ve been meaning to write about it for a while. I really didn’t intend for this week to be a book review week, […]


UnDiet Review + Recipe + Giveaway (valued at $300!)


For many of you, Meghan Telpner needs no introduction. She’s the inspiring, Canadian (yay!), and playful voice behind her website, Making Love in the Kitchen. After being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at the age of 26, Meghan made it her mission to regain her health via non-traditional methods. That’s when she rediscovered the powers of […]


Golden Beet Salad with Shallots, Parsley, and Orange Miso Dressing


The first signs of spring are starting to show this week – buds on tree branches, Canadian geese migrating home, squirrels bouncing about, and birds chirping delightfully among the tree tops. It really is a beautiful thing to witness. One stroll through the park and it’s clear that this renewal we feel during spring is […]
