I know, I know, just what you’re craving in the middle of summer…a dish that brings the heat! Did I nail it on the head or what? Well, maybe you can entertain this as an idea for a rainy, cool-ish summer evening. We enjoyed it on a night like that just recently! We’ve had a […]

A simple roasted butternut squash salad

Last year my dear friend Karly mentioned that she started seeing a business coach. She was struggling to find balance with her quickly growing career while juggling a busy personal life, and found some much needed support and accountability with a coach. Consider me intrigued! I admire her for taking the initiative to get outside […]

Adriana’s Fave 10-Minute Pasta (toddler-friendly)

At long last, I’m sharing the recipe I’ve probably made the most since Adriana started eating solids (which somehow feels like forever ago and just yesterday at the same time). I’ve had so many requests for this recipe, but never got around to sharing it because it would always be devoured right away, leaving no […]

Apple Pie Oatmeal

For whatever reason, I have this burning desire to take otherwise ‘normal’ recipes and turn them into      spin-offs of my favourite desserts. Carrot Cake Oatmeal. Apple Pie Muffin Tops. Pumpkin Pie Monster. Zucchini Bread oatmeal. Oatmeal Cookie VOO. Pumpkin Pie VOO. Pecan Pie ‘Truffles’. You might call this weird, but I call it totally normal…as […]

Baked Apples Stuffed with Cinnamon Date Pecan Oatmeal

Baked Apple Oatmeal-7375

I’m a multi-tasking addict. It’s sad to say that I can’t perform many tasks without doing other things at the same time. For instance, when I was making this recipe yesterday, I was also cooking 2 other recipes, shooting photography, and doing computer work at the same time. That’s just how I function most days. […]

I somehow managed to fit everything in yesterday! It was truly a proud moment. I managed to squeeze in a great heart-pumping workout + Whittle My Middle 2 with Eric. However, my WMM2 victim willing participant is getting a bit unruly! Last night Eric decides that it would be fun to POKE me as I […]

Black Bean and Butternut Squash Burritos

Isn’t it cruel that I’m dangling these burrito pictures in front of you several hours before lunch on a Monday morning? If I was a better planner, I would have posted this recipe yesterday. Then you could have made these for dinner and had leftovers for lunch today. Oops? The truth is, I was just […]

Black Bean, Sweet Potato, and Red Quinoa Soup

black bean and sweet potato soup-8161

Can winter fare be both vibrant and comforting? I think this colourful soup is proof that it can. Sometimes it feels difficult to pack in as many bright coloured vegetables and fruit into one’s diet this time of the year, but it’s certainly possible. Just think of all the bright colours in season right now […]
