The changing of the seasons typically coincide with changes in my workout schedules. As the temperature dropped over the past few weeks, I started to shift my outdoor runs to the lunch hour.

It’s the first day of Fall and I know exactly what you need. A Snuggie, so you and your family can snug on the couch watching all your new favourite Fall shows. That poor dog. Why do I get the feeling that you are all sitting at your computer right now with one on? Don’t […]

When it comes to onion rings, I’m a bit of a late bloomer. I don’t think I tried my first onion ring until I was in my twenties, and when I did, I can’t say I was blown away. They were a bit bland and I could think of a million other foods I’d rather […]

The healthy dinner recipes continue… I’m happy to report that as of December 30th, I finished off my cabbage that haunted me for almost 2 months in my fridge. 2 months. I think I’ve discovered the fountain of youth because cabbage just won’t die! Plus, I really didn’t want to bring this “cabbage baggage” with […]

Glowing Green “Pasta” Primavera

It’s taken me a while to feel inspired to cook spring recipes due to the move/renos and the on-again, off-again spring weather (ahem, fresh blanket of snow last week), but now I can say it finally feels like spring.

Once upon a time there was a girl who liked to eat. This girl loves potatoes, especially Hasselback potatoes. One day last fall, she got an idea to make Hasselback baked apples.

This weekend, we went on our first summery hike of the year. The weather was warm and the sun was shining. It was our first hike of the year that we didn’t think we were going to: 1) freeze to death, or 2) sink 3 feet deep in the mud. I didn’t even need a […]
