Raspberry Smoothie Freezer Bark with Cereal & Granola

I wish I could say my kid was the sugary-cereal fiend in our house but that would be a bold faced lie. My husband has a thing for cereal. He has since he was a kid and I don’t think he’ll outgrow it anytime soon. I can only guess that my daughter will also have […]

Savory Pea & Parmesan Hand Pies with Sumac Labneh

With Spring so close you can almost taste the fresh peas, I haven’t been able to get this recipe from Baked The Blog out of my head. Savory green pea & nutty Parmesan filling spread over a tangy sumac strained cheese and tucked away in a flaky, buttery pastry. I shared it on the blog almost […]

Thinking Ahead

I remember the days of stirring softly in bed, my thoughts drifting to breakfast as I re-joined the cognizant world and marveled at the way the morning sun painted our whole room gold. So romantic. Breakfast could be whatever I dreamed, coffee and pancakes or maybe a smoothie and some oatmeal, homemade of course. These […]

Gathering at the Table

Fall. I wait all year for you. The soothing smell of burning wood that reminds me of my childhood, the crackle of leaves blazing like fire, the lazy soot-coloured sky that dances between day and dusk and the smell of butter, flour and sugar that seems to blanket our neighbourhood as the cool air and holiday season […]

Heartfelt Food

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Loblaws and Zehrs. All opinions are 100% mine. I’m a sucker for big family dinners, I always have been. The hustle and bustle of a house filled with fast-moving bodies, laughter, pots clanging as the smell of something wonderful fills the air, gathering together […]

IN SEASON: Ontario Peaches

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Loblaws Companies Inc.. All opinions are 100% mine. PEACH SEASON! Are you filling your carts, baskets, bags and pockets with all things peach? I know we are. My motto for the month is “put a peach on it!”. Salads, gazpacho, stuffed chicken, tacos… everything […]

In Season: Fiddlehead {sponsored}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Loblaws Companies Inc.. All opinions are 100% mine. Sometime around mid-late April, the fronds of the Wild Ostrich Fern start to unfurl from beneath swamps, marshes and forests around New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec and make their way into the hands of keen foragers. […]

Whatever Works

Fixing dinner with a teething, growth-spurting, crawling-all-over-and-getting-into-everything, pulling-on-your-pant-leg 9 month old can be a challenge (every parent everywhere, “wait until she’s walking!”). Each morning I imagine the delicious meal I’ll shop for, prep and cook during the day but ultimately I end up eating a bowl of Lipton’s chicken noodle soup…. sometimes I might even […]

KitchenAid® Torrent™ Blender GIVEAWAY!

I don’t often get to play with new toys in the kitchen. In fact, I’ve had the same blender for over 10 years… and it barely does it’s job. So when KitchenAid got in touch asking if I’d like a chance to play with the new KitchenAid Torrent Blender, I was IN. Like, really in. […]

Back At It

Here we are! Back again and feeling more like myself every day. That last post was intense but felt so important for me to share for a multitude of reasons. The most important being that a) I needed to get it out. They say the truth will set you free and while I surely didn’t […]
