Having my mom here for the last several days was such a treat. I’ve felt a bit like a basket case lately as we’re dealing with some behavioural issues (the munchkin, not the mom!), and having her here made the world of difference. As I’ve written about in my birth story, the presence of other […]

My mom flew in yesterday for her long-anticipated visit! This week was a busy one as I’ve been working extra hard to get my work completed early, and then take care of the usual cleaning, groceries, etc. before our special guest arrives. You know, as they say…gotta make up the “fake house”. (I thought that […]

Avocado Strawberry Caprese

I absolutely love the work I do each day; given the choice, I wouldn’t pick any other field, which feels pretty awesome after following an unexpected, winding path to get here. (When I started the blog way back in 2008, I had just graduated with a Master’s degree in Social-Personality Psychology and was working as […]

Now that our family is on the mend after illness, we’re looking forward to getting outside for the weekend—which will include Adriana’s first visit to a splash pad (can’t wait!) and a barbeque event. It should be a good one. I hope […]

It’s always heartbreaking as a parent to witness your child with any kind of illness. We’ve been so lucky that this was Adriana’s first stomach flu, but it’s still so hard to watch her go through it. Thankfully, she didn’t get it quite as bad as we did. Eric and I dropped like flies: me […]

Thanks to the Victoria Day holiday on Monday, this week has flown by (even more so than usual). It’s always a challenge trying to squeeze a 5-day workweek into just 4 days, but I’m still hoping my plans to retest and photograph a couple new recipes can happen today. As always, you can catch the […]

All Day Glow Green Smoothie

Lately I’ve been trying to find ways to eat more veggies—which I realize may sound a bit funny coming from someone who eats plant-based—but it’s all too easy to get into ruts, especially when things are busy. It’s just so convenient to grab something from a box sometimes! Pregnancy also makes my food obsessions and […]
