Spelt Berry Porridge with Granola, Dates, and Raspberries

IMG_2434

Last year, I had my first cooking attempt with wheat berries when I made the Back on Track Wheat Berry Salad. I fell head over heels. (That is one of my favourite salads by the way!) Wheat berries are chewy, versatile, and they pack a great nutritional punch. And then I discovered spelt berries. I […]

Last June, my blog buddy Ashley came for a visit! It was our first time meeting ‘in real life’. I was nervous and basically had hot flashes anticipating her arrival. Luckily, we hit it off.  :) We bonded over foodie gifts.. Oatmeal. [That would be my favourite VOO –> Cherry Chocolate Bomb Vegan Overnight Oats] […]

Peppermint Patty Green Monster

IMG_2704-2-4

Back in our University days, we would often line up at Irish Pubs to drink green beer on St. Patty’s Day, all decked out in green St. Patty’s Day paraphernalia and faces decorated with four leaf clovers. There would be line-ups at the pubs by 10am on St. Patty’s Day; all the students were eager to […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ‘Blizzard’

IMG_2945-2

Growing up, I used to have a thing for Dairy Queen Blizzards. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Blizzards, in particular, were my go-to indulgence during the summer when I needed something cold and creamy, especially after hours of running around at softball practice. It also helped that my sister used to work there and she […]

My doctor’s appointment went well yesterday. After doing a physical exam (twisting and bending my back all around and also checking the back bones), the doc thinks that my bones and spinal discs are fine, but it is probably an aggravated sciatic nerve (given the location of the pain). Apparently this is fairly common and […]

The Cereal Challenge: High Protein & High Fibre Cereal

IMG_4147-2

I love cereal and I often have a bowl for a snack, but I never find that it does a good job filling me up. Because of this I rarely have cereal for breakfast, assuming that I am going to be hungry in an hour. Every morning Eric eats a gigantic bowl of Nature’s Path […]

Vegan Carrot Spice Muffins for Grandpa

IMG_4250

To say that I had baking indecision yesterday would be an understatement! Whenever I am time-crunched and baking for someone special, my mind just draws a blank and nothing seems right. I looked over my recipes page for a quick + easy recipe that was calling my name… Snickerdoodles? Too Christmas-y. Pumpkin Gingerbread with Buttercream? […]

Giant Upside Down Apple Pancake

There are 4 words I never thought I would hear in the same sentence: ‘Thirty Thousand’ and ‘Deck quote’ We had a decking company do a quote on our deck because we wanted a professional’s opinion on whether we should replace the 25 year old deck beams. We were also just curious what kind of […]

Fruity Baked Oatmeal with Crunchy Cinnamon Almond Topping

Yesterday, I thought the tide was turning with my flu. I had a fairly restful sleep Monday night and my symptoms had died down a bit. I was so excited because I thought that I was getting over this thing! …and then Tuesday evening hit and the symptoms came back with a vengeance. I was […]

Raw Triple Berry Crisp

Thank you for your Birthday Wishes! I had a pretty low key day since we both worked, but the evening was fun. The restaurant we wanted to go to was closed on Mondays, so we are going tonight instead. We made Channa Masala together (using this recipe) and I opened a few gifts! One of […]
