‘”Mommy, guess who is very busy right now?” “Who?” “Auntie Angie is very busy right now.” “Oh really?” “Yes. She’s busy baking us all kinds of treats! heheh” Clearly, my nephew Ethan has been reading my blog! He said that to Kristi as they were flying to Ontario this weekend. And he was right; it […]

Blueberry Almond Chia Squares

IMG_9188

Last weekend, I found myself at the Farmer’s Market ogling fresh blueberries. Before I left, Eric said, “Don’t bring back more than you can eat,” with a wink. This was surely a challenge. I left with 2 pounds of blueberries and the complete confidence that I would eat all of them. He obviously doesn’t realize […]

Welcome to the Heat Wave of 2011. Are you melting too? Today it’s supposed to reach 38C (100F)…and 47C with humidity! Humidity is such a party pooper. Anyone who lives in a humid climate knows what I’m talking about. And the hair. Oh my hair. Just picture a tumbleweed in the Sahara that got struck […]

Our Perfect Veggie Burger

IMG_8700

For the past several months, I’ve been on a quest to make a veggie burger that had everything on our wish list. I’ve probably made over 100 veggie burgers and they all came up short, either by just a tiny bit or by a landslide. I’m always asked what I do with failed recipes and […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch ‘Blizzard’

IMG_8552

Last night, I made a new veggie burger recipe. Don’t get too excited though, they were crap. I’m super picky when it comes to veggie burgers and I rarely meet one that I’m happy with. Eric goes, ‘They’d be good without all the lemon…’ ‘They are rosemary lemon burgers.’ ‘Oh…hah’ Fail. I also won’t tell […]

Chilled Strawberry Almond Butter Soup

IMG_7801

I wait all year long for local strawberries to make their brief appearance and when I finally see them at the market and in the grocery stores I tend to go a bit crazy. I hoard them. I freeze them. I go to Strawberry festivals. I make Strawberry Banana Soft Serve. I make Strawberry Shortcake […]

High Protein Quinoa Almond Berry Salad

IMG_7655-2

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 […]
