Creamy Instant-Pot White Beans with Spicy Coconut Herb Sauce

Knowing we have cooked beans handy has always been a source of comfort for me during busy times. Whether it’s serving them on their own with a drizzle of olive oil, some salt and aleppo pepper or adding them to a pot of simmering soup, beans bulk up the simplest of meals and add the […]

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 […]

Heartfelt Food + Creamy Potato & Kale Mash

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Loblaws and Zehrs. All opinions are 100% mine. There is something to be said for tradition around the holidays. The comforting understanding that everything will be the same. That same white and floral plate adorned with , buttery green beans, stuffing jeweled with dried […]

In Season: Sockeye Salmon

I find myself saying, “we need to eat more seafood” far too much these days. On the odd occasion that I do find myself in the seafood section of the grocery store/market, I always end up bringing something, whatever is ethical and in season, home with me and vowing to do it more often as […]

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 […]

Everything is OK

My life is a living version of Groundhog Day. Each day inevitably starts at 3am, as I stir myself awake and realize all over again that a) there is a 400lb child in my stomach (ok, I have no idea what she weighs…but I’m certain it’s a lot) and b) she doesn’t want to come […]

GO TIME.

  MATERNITY LEAVE. THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING. I think it might be the first time in my life where I don’t have a schedule of sorts to follow. Typically, I thrive on a routine and schedule but knowing that this is likely the last time I’ll have to myself for a very long time, I […]

On Oats and Mush

Oatmeal and I don’t much get along. I’m not usually bothered by textures; I love all the slimeys and the crunchys, the gritty and the smooth. But rolled oatmeal? Come on. You guys aren’t really serious about that stuff are you? YOU CAN’T BE. It looks like someone who has been sworn to a bland […]

The Warm Morning Sun

We’ve been spending a lot of time hibernating at our new house, and not simply because of the harsh winter weather we’ve been dealt. We’re so happy and love our new space so much that I find it hard to rip myself away from it some days. Especially after breakfast.Each morning we peel back our […]

A Wee Little Girl

This past week we found out we’re having a little girl. A wee tiny baby girl. Isn’t that something?Though we’d tried to picture ourselves with a girl or a boy, it didn’t seem real. Like trying to imagine yourself as someone else, plunked in their life. We had been rooting for a boy…. it felt […]
