Orange Raspberry Muffins

Orange Raspberry Muffins

This summer was a pretty weird one weather wise. Since it rained almost everyday my garden was thriving! It was luscious and green, but due to the lack of hot days nothing was ripening. So, when I left for school I gave my mom one […]

Massassauga Canoe Trip Summer 2017

Massassauga Canoe Trip Summer 2017

Every year when June rolled around and school began to wind down I would vow to have “the best summer” ever. Every year I told myself that I was going to do so many cool things and see my friends all the time over the […]

Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta

Let me begin by saying that this post is way overdue. Last March my family and I travelled to Puerto Vallarta for the March Break holiday and ever since we returned I have been meaning to share my photographs and suggestions of places to go. Unfortunately, I was just too busy to ever write that post (until now, ha!). I guess late is better than never!

Golden Turmeric Latté

Golden Turmeric Latté

It’s no secret that this summer hasn’t been very “summery”. Sure, we got spoiled with some spectacular 30 degree dock days, but those were usually incompassed by about 7 straight days of rain. Needless to say the wearer has been less than ideal and I […]

Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

These last few weeks have been a complete and total whirlwind! With two portfolios due, a mass of school assignments, extracurricular activities and a vacation thrown right in the middle, I’ve had almost no time to myself. Fortunately, it’s starting to wind down (thank God!).

Creamy Avocado Caesar Dressing

Creamy Avocado Caesar Dressing

This is the same dressing that I used for my Kale Caesar Salad recipe. I though  I would create a separate post for those who aren’t interested in making the salad. There are tons

Ginger Molasses Loaf

Ginger Molasses Loaf

I am a huge fan of molasses. One of my favourite things at christmas time is baking (and eating!) chewy, delicious, homemade ginger molasses cookies. They produce the most wonderful scent when they’re baking, it just smells like christmas. This holiday season I

DIY Nut Butter

DIY Nut Butter

If you know me, you know I have an array of odd food obsessions. Hummus, anything with sweet potatoes, sushi, watermelon, just to name a few. I also adore nut butter, especially almond based nut butters (I’m not a fan of peanut butter). Honestly, I could live off of nut butter. I am known to eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon, not even joking.  (more…)

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

I am a big time snacker. When I get home after a long day my snack is basically a meal. I’m not kidding. That is why it is important for me to keep healthy snacks on hand so that I don’t binge out on chips […]
