Powerhouse Green Dip

Back before we had Ruthie I imagined a world where she would sit, quiet and still, on the counter top watching diligently as I put together a recipe or meal. She would be absorbing everything I did, holding steadfastly to the memory of cooking with Mama when she was a little girl. We would sit […]

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 […]

Goodbye, My Friend.

Today we said goodbye. Goodbye to a best friend, constant companion and the greatest pal I’ll ever know. To the most constant thing I’ve ever had in my life. My girl, Ryder. When I was 18, dumb and impulsive, I moved to Fernie, BC. I didn’t have much of a reason, but I wanted to […]

NEW DESIGN + Turkey Champion

When I cook, I’m usually hoping to accomplish one of two things. The first, something that makes use of what’s already in the fridge, maybe not keeping so well anymore. The second, something filling and satisfying we can make once and eat all week for lunches or snacks to keep us going. My main man […]

Moving On

Today, I am celebrating. A fresh start, a new career, a life more focused on the things I love. It’s exciting and terrifying and makes me fell alive like only the threat of failing can.  Monday was my last day sitting at a desk. No more taking meetings, compiling reports and invoices, wearing itchy tights […]

Comfort Food Makeover with Turkey Farmers of Canada [Caramelized Brussels Sprout & Turkey Casserole with Kale and Aged Cheddar]

It’s getting cooler around these parts and we’re starting to crave all those rich, braised, cheesy recipes that have been tucked away since last winter. I have a small dusty box of casserole, pasta, soup and braised recipes I keep on hand for just this occasion, but to be honest, I’m growing tired of them. […]

15 Minutes to Dinner [Smokey Sausage, Kale & Sweet Potato Soup – *SPONSORED*]

“You always have the best dinners! I wish I had the time.” I hear this so many times. So, so many times. People tend to think I eat like a king most nights of the week. Big, extravagant meals that I’ve been pouring over for hours and planned for days. Get real, guys! I don’t […]

Oh, the Dramatics [Spicy Chickpea Salad Melts]

I’ve been struggling through the last few weeks.  Struggling to find sense and purpose in some days, feeling angry that I’m not where I thought I would be at this point in my life, crushing under the [self-induced] pressure of my late 20s (which, I know, is still very young and leaves plenty of time […]

Knock Out That Cold [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), […]

Ode to the Egg [Sauteed Purple Kale with Charred Shallots & Fried Egg]

There are few things I wouldn’t do for an egg in the morning.  I wake up thinking of them, trying to recall what veg I have in the crisper, if I’ve any bread or cheese, onions or garlic, and deciding whether it’ll be fried in olive oil or scrambled low and slow until velvety and […]
