Ruthie Mae’s Superhero Smoothie

  [This post is sponsored by Agropur! I used their products to create a healthy, toddler-friendly smoothie and was compensated in return. Regardless, I only work with brands I trust and buy myself.] If you’re a parent, you know there are plenty of things to worry about (like, all the time). From meeting developmental goals and […]

Blood Orange Whiskey Sours

It’s Easter weekend and I’ve come bearing a zingy, vibrant cocktail that will kiss you gently on the forehead and ease (mildly sedate?) you through your next few days of screaming, chocolate-filled children/probably some adults, and potentially disastrous political “discussions”. It’s what the holidays are all about, right? 🙄 We freaking love a good sour in our house […]

Tepache with Vanilla Bean and Ginger + Tepache Margarita

I have to preface this post with – I am neither scientest nor doctor. I use my kitchen as a science lab and have yet to die or blow anything up, so I think things are going well, but if you’re not comfortable fermenting at home please feel free to reach out to a professional […]

Lacto-Fermented Passion Fruit Soda

Since having a kid 2 years ago (2 years ago? whaaaat!), I’ve noticed that the amount of waste we make has, as it does with children, gone up. Some of this is unavoidable, but some of it has just become bad habit. Namely, the garbage situation in our home. Before Ruthie, I had things organized […]

Roasted Mango & Green Cardamom Lassi with Vanilla Chia Pudding

Breakfast sort of drives me crazy most days. I wake up starving but with literally ZERO desire to make anything but coffee and toast. Now, there isn’t a thing wrong with toast but it gets to be a bit of a bore after 31 years of having it pretty much any/every way. And I often […]

Charred Pineapple Bourbon Sour

There are few things I love more than a glass of wine (or two 😏) after a long day of chasing a wild animal around our neighbourhood, cooking for 10 (1 toddler), washing dishes for 20, doing laundry for 30…. you get the picture here. I love wine. Some days, however, call for something just […]

Spicy Kale Ginger Lemonade

There is something ominous lurking around. A dirty, nasty cold/flu that seems to be knocking my friends and family out one by one. I woke yesterday with a sandpaper throat and what felt like two corks in my sinus’. Immediately I started trying to knock it out before it did me in. Water (a lot of water), […]

Warm Coconut Milk with Hazelnuts, Honey & Bourbon

Eggnog. You did one of two things when you read that. You were either reminded of delicious holiday memories filled with family and boozy (or booze-free, if such a thing exists) thick eggnog. Alternatively, and like me, you retched a little in your mouth. There is no in between with the raw, egg-heavy concoction. You love […]
