Meet MONSTER kale…just in time for Halloween… Flashback to May 2011: Madness. The peppers continue to grow even despite this cool and rainy weather! As well as […]

IMG_2128

You wouldn’t know it from the plethora of steel-cut oatmeal recipes I have on the blog (one), but steel-cut oats are actually my favourite way to enjoy oatmeal. The only problem is I’m usually too hungry to wait 30 minutes to eat breakfast. Hence, my obsession with quick breakfasts like Vegan overnight oats, Green Monsters, […]

From here on out, things like pears, apples, figs, grapes, beets, pumpkins, carrots, squash, and potatoes make their seasonal debut.

I’ve always loved teaching. When I was a young girl, I used to play school with my stuffed animals and any friends that I could trick into being a student in my class. I made an Attendance List (the students didn’t always show up on time!) and I taught math, writing, art, and deep life […]

Iron Woman Gingerbread Smoothie

IMG_1323

Eric says I make my best recipes when I’m pmsing. Wait, is that a back-handed compliment? Errr… And how did he know I was pmsing? “Well,…remember the other night when you started to cry watching that wedding dress show…?” “When the Dad cries, everyone cries.” “…and the other day, I caught you with chocolate all […]

Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

Brrr…it’s a chilly morning in our neck of the woods! I woke up around 6am absolutely freezing, so I closed the window and pulled on the blanket that was at the end of the bed. I had another 45 minutes of cozy, warm sleep with Sketchie cuddled at my feet and Eric by my side. […]

Chocolate Cake Batter Smoothie

IMG_0896

Sometimes a girl just needs a bowl of chocolate cake batter all to herself. There I said it. And not feel the least bit insane.   We’ve been spending every spare moment working on the house and I’m starting to go a bit crazy. More than usual. I don’t know when Date Night became Friday […]
