IMG_7710

As I type this post, we’re getting a snow storm. It’s so beautiful out, but I can’t help but dream of the summer. I can barely remember what the forest looks like all green and full of life. Right now, it’s stark white and eerily still. I don’t know about you, but I‘ve got a […]

IMG_7688

I like to think there are a few different types of “breakfast people”: Those who prefer sweet breakfasts. Those who prefer savoury breakfasts. Those who enjoy a mixture of the two.   I think I’m somewhere in the middle, so I guess I would say #3. What about you? While I don’t enjoy super sweet […]

Whole Foods Inspired Layered Salad with Orange Ginger Dressing

IMG_7490

Remember this fun layered salad I had from Whole Foods while in Arizona?   I believe I said, “Mark my words, this will be the first thing I make when I’m on Canadian soil.” Ok, so it wasn’t technically the first thing I made (not even close if you could see all the recipe testing […]

Lucky for you, patience is not my strong suit. I made this recipe a while ago with grand plans to save it for the cookbook, but I really couldn’t keep it to myself any longer. Especially on Valentine’s Day. That would just be cruel. It all began when I saw an incredible looking cookie dough […]

Old Man Winter Vs. Heart of Gold

IMG_2296

Leave it to Old Man Winter to arrive promptly before my first race in almost 16 months. Impeccable timing, Old Man. I swear, it was mild and there was no snow on the ground when I booked the race. As soon as I booked, a storm moved in on the weekend and the temperature plummeted. […]

Have you ever had a hobby or activity that you love and let it get away for a while? And a lot of time goes by and you start to wonder if you’ll ever get back into it? That’s sort of what happened to me with running races. In 2009, I got hooked on races […]
