Almond Meal Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

There is nothing worse than a tease. Especially a warm weather tease. Case in point: I have five zucchini plants, a spinach plant, a lettuce plant and a rosemary plant crowded in large, over-sized pots on our living room floor ....more

Orange Cranberry Loaf

The weather is ever so slowly warming up here and I’m already in full on spring cleaning mode. No closet is safe, my friend. On the kitchen front, I’ve spent a good part of this past week tackling the freezer ....more

Cinnamon Raisin Scones

Happy Easter Weekend! No holiday-themed recipe this week. Normally I would get really bummed out about not being able to “time” my recipes properly in accordance to the upcoming holidays, but this time I actually have an excuse ....more

Whole Wheat Ginger Blueberry Pancakes

Next to being able to sleep in, one of my favourite things about the weekend is having the time to make a good breakfast. During my 6am weekdays I constantly rely on either a bowl of cereal, the odd piece of toast or my easy yogurt overnight oats if I’m smart and plan ahead the night before. But on the weekends, as long as our mornings are free, I’m in complete breakfast bliss ....more

Kale Mango Green Smoothie

Is anyone else really pumped about all this melting snow? I swear, after this cold, bitter winter I’m never going to take warm weather for granted again. Of course I’m saying this now ....more

Coconut Oil Cookies with Toasted Pecans and Cacao Nibs

Posting here has been a little bit of a struggle lately. Nothing sad or serious going on, it’s just recently I’ve been having the worst luck in my kitchen. Earlier this month I was on the third version of a scones recipe that I absolutely refused to give up on and something in me just…..snapped ....more

Grapefruit Chia Seed Muffins

At the end of winter, I always go through a grapefruit-buying phase. I see them on sale at the grocery store and I stock up because I’m convinced they’ll get me through the end of cold season. I used to think that this had something to do with trying to get my daily dose of Vitamin C (see end of cold season), but now I believe it has more to do with all these beautiful pink, red and yellow hues ....more

Soft Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies

I’m officially over winter. I know a lot of people say that, but I think today I truly am. It may be because I’m tired of constantly scraping salt off my boots, my work pants and even our hardwood floor ....more

Strawberry Yogurt Cake with Coconut Whipped Cream + On Turning 30

Growing up, I remember my mom owned a sweater with the phrase “30 never looked so good.” It was a white pull-over sweater with crazy fonts and coloured shapes – think Saved By the Bell styled clipart. When I was a teenager, it become one of my mom’s favourite sweaters to wear while doing chores around the house and at the time I remember thinking how “old” 30 seemed. To a kid like me, being 30 was practically a lifetime away ....more

Whole Wheat Blueberry Cornbread Muffins

Comfort food #ALLtheTIME is still happening and right now we’re up to our ears in homemade soup, hearty stews and all the fresh bread imaginable for dipping. As much as I’m not a fan of this time of year, what with the cold weather, snow and having to constantly scrape salt off my boots, I can’t deny that all this warm, cozy food sort of makes up for it. I’m still using my new bread machine on a semi-regular basis, but last week I thought I would pull out my good old muffin tin and make some cornbread muffins ....more
