3 Ready-in-a-Jiffy Warm Weather Snack Recipes!

IMG_9936

I’ve grown to love the month of May. Weather wise, we just don’t know what we’re going to get. Some days it’s warm and sunny and other days it’s rainy and cool. Evening walks usually require a light jacket…or sometimes a heavier one when it’s raining and chilly… Watching the days get longer and longer […]

IMG_9901

Don’t you love when you discover a new food that blows your mind, despite the fact that others have been raving about it for ages? Some of mine: Avocado (I “hated” avocado until I ate my face off w/ guacamole in Mexico, 2007) Mushrooms (anyplace, anytime) Beets (raw, cooked, juiced, I like them all) Tofu […]

Crazy Woman Chocolate Blender Pudding

IMG_9820

This 60-second recipe happened as a result of a major chocolate craving over the weekend. If PMS is good for one thing and one thing only it’s for inspiring many of my favourite recipes. This weekend, I was craving this secret-ingredient chocolate pudding like a crazy woman, but I didn’t have a couple of the […]

Sun-dried Tomato Cheezy Kale Chips

IMG_9737

Eric has this new thing for kale chips. Specifically, “cheezy” kale chips. The guy is practically obsessed. Every time we find ourselves in Organic Garage, he sneaks a bag of kale chips into the cart and then gets annoyed with me if I eat too many of “his” chips. I never thought I’d have to […]

Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies (Gluten-Free & Vegan)

IMG_9707

  I’ve loved thumbprints ever since I was a kid. Any recipe that tells me to jam my thumb into cookie dough and fill it with actual jam is a winner in my books. Did you ever eat those packaged cookies with the cream and gooey strawberry filling? Not technically a thumbprint cookie I guess, […]

Spring Salad with Strawberry Lemon Basil Dressing

IMG_9518

  As May approaches and spring is in full force, I’m finding excuses to walk everywhere, lugging my camera in tote. I have a blister and sore right shoulder to prove it! Tulips, daffodils, and cherry blossoms are in bloom, tiny green leaves sprout, I’m sneezing like crazy, and our car is a lovely shade […]

Kitchen Sink Nut Butter & Cuisinart Food Processor Review

IMG_9275

  After dealing with a leaky (and often explosive) food processor for over a year, it was finally time to break down and hunt for a new one. Next to my blender the food processor is my second most used kitchen appliance, so I want one that does the job well. After asking for your […]

Let Them Eat Vegan! Review & Giveaway

IMG_9377

I first came across Dreena Burton’s blog and her vegan recipes just as I was beginning to dabble with vegan recipes myself. Shortly after I started my blog in 2008, I heard all the buzz about Dreena’s vegan cookbook called Eat Drink & Be Vegan. Her Supercharge Me cookies were the talk of the town! […]

14 Foods I’m Loving Lately!

IMG_7909

I’ve been suffering from major recipe block. Or is it recipe flop? Is that even a thing? I guess it is. I didn’t know it was a thing until I started making so many darn recipes. After last week’s so-so recipe creations, I spilled an entire can of coconut milk all over the inside of […]

Lessons from Oprah’s Lifeclass in Toronto: Part 2

20120219-onc-tony-robbins-11-600x411

At the end of her talk, Iylana left us with this quote: “Don’t forget…success is the best revenge.” The more I think about the quote the more I feel conflicted about it. For me, “happiness is the best revenge” fits better because I know from experience that success doesn’t necessarily equal personal satisfaction. I’ve been […]
