Aside from the new dishes, plentiful leftovers, and a freezer packed with goodies, there are dishes, messes, computer troubles, steep grocery bills, minor breakdowns, and taste-testings gone wrong.

Ultimate Green Taco Wraps with Lentil-Walnut Taco Meat (Vegan + Gluten-Free)

My desire for vegetables has been fleeting over the course of the first and second trimesters. Some days I don’t want to touch them with a ten foot pole (except in smoothies, maybe), but when I do get a craving for veggies I have to eat all the vegetables, as soon as possible. There’s no […]

      The last week in December is one of my favourite times of the entire year. Everything slows down. It’s eerily quiet. The normal traffic has vanished. Snow falls from the sky and glistens on the trees. Eric’s home early from work.  We have impromptu get togethers with friends. I feel proud when I’m able […]
