Frankenstorm. Earthquakes. Halloween parties. It has been quite an active weekend out there. I hope you’re all keeping safe! Nothing too crazy is happening (yet) weather-wise in Southern Ontario, just days of relentless windy rain and many more looming ahead. Between the quake on the coast of B.C. and Hurricane Sandy on the east coast, […]

Homemade Crispy Twix Bars

twix recipe vegan-7480

muhahauha I don’t know why, but that just felt appropriate to open with being 6 days from Halloween and all. Evil cackles are the perfect compliment to many situations, don’t you think? Such as: – When you’re bored at work and want to make coworkers think you’re up to something (aren’t you always??) See Dwight […]

Baked Apples Stuffed with Cinnamon Date Pecan Oatmeal

Baked Apple Oatmeal-7375

I’m a multi-tasking addict. It’s sad to say that I can’t perform many tasks without doing other things at the same time. For instance, when I was making this recipe yesterday, I was also cooking 2 other recipes, shooting photography, and doing computer work at the same time. That’s just how I function most days. […]

The Butchart Gardens

Butchart Gardens-5953

It takes a lot for me to be rendered motionless, but this weekend I literally couldn’t move from the couch. After demolishing a few boxes of tissue, my abs feel like I spent 72 hours doing a crunch marathon and my nose feels and looks like it was raked with metal prongs. Eric has since […]

homemade Rolo chocolate-7146

During my late teens and early twenties, my top 5 favourite chocolate bars were the following (in no particular order): Chunky Kit Kat, Wunderbar, Coffee Crisp, Rolo/Caramilk, and Twix. What about you? For the next Halloween recipe in my Treat-a-thon series, I made a healthier version of Rolo caramels. Instead of making a traditional caramel, […]

3-Ingredient Halloween Apple Bites

This has to be one of the easiest Halloween treats in all of Halloween treat-making history. I’m really not a crafty person when it comes to making holiday things, but these were almost fool proof. Note the word almost! Eric and I did a “test run” one night last week and we could not stop […]
