Rustic Leek and Potato Soup

Rustic Leek and Potato Soup

Funny story, a few weeks ago (Maybe a few months ago?) I needed a few potatoes for a recipe and my mom picked up a gargantuan bag of russet potatoes. Well, I still have about three quarters of the bag in my pantry… Being more […]

Immune Boosting Citrus Juice

Immune Boosting Citrus Juice

When it’s 30 below outside and the gloominess of winter is really starting to sink in we could all use a bit of a pick-me-up. It feels as though I’ve hardly seen the sun in the last few months (today being a rare exception) and […]

Cranberry & Apricot “Buttermilk” Scones

Cranberry & Apricot “Buttermilk” Scones

By taking a quick glance out the window it looks as though it’s April out there. Everything is wet, there are only tiny patches of snow remaining and the sky seems to be eternally grey. In case you didn’t know, April is one of my […]

Loaded Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

Loaded Spirulina Smoothie Bowl

I’m a big time green smoothie lover and recently I’ve been doing some experimenting with new ingredients. About a month ago I ordered a few specialty health food items that are a little bit difficult to find around where I live. One of those items […]

Winter Vegetable Dahl

Winter Vegetable Dahl

As the holiday season winds down, it seems as though cold and flu season is just starting to rev up, for me anyway. I’ve ben waking up to itchy ears, a stuffy nose and a nasty sinus headache. For the last two weeks I’ve been […]

Lots of exciting news to share. First thing’s first, this past Friday my big sis left on her big Scottish adventure. Emma is on exchange in Scotland for the next five months. I am hopeful that I will have a chance to head over to the […]

  Hi all! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. My family had a three-day Christmas celebration this year and I must say I’m pretty worn out from all the festivities. I’ll give you a little run-down of how my holiday went. With t-minus […]

Pumpkin Spice Waffles

Pumpkin Spice Waffles

I feel as though we kind of got cheated on autumn this year. We went from the crappy, raininess of August to the unbearably hot days of September and October and now we’ve just survived the yuckiest month of the year (in my opinion), November. […]

Socca with Grilled Roots and Golden Hummus

Socca with Grilled Roots and Golden Hummus

As November sets in I have found myself in need of a good pick me up. It seems as though we completely skipped nice fall weather and went straight into the crappyness of November. I mean, I can’t really complain too much about the weather because we […]

Ode to Summer + Chocolate for Breakfast

Ode to Summer + Chocolate for Breakfast

It seems as though fall is finally arriving. With the last few days reaching above twenty degrees (Celsius that is) it has been an unusually hot October. Now that it actually feels like autumn, I think it’s best to say a formal “goodbye” to summer.
