Halloween Cake Pops

Halloween!! It’s only a week away! Where are you on the Halloween-loving scale? Some people LOVE it, some are indifferent or ambivalent, and some refuse to celebrate it. I would say I’m about a 7 on the scare scale. I love, LOVE the whole idea of it – the dressing […]

best beef jerky

Best Beef Jerky

Are you a savory or a sweet snacker? I have a hard time choosing one that I relate to the most, since I love both, but sometimes I really need that salt. Beef jerky has long been a favourite snack of mine; when it was on sale (it’s far from […]

Peekaboo Pumpkin-Chocolate Loaf

Peekaboo Pumpkin-Chocolate Loaf

So, before I get right into the amazingess of this loaf, I wanted to tell you about the cupcake decorating class I took last night! It was hosted by Crave Cupcakes – they really do have the best cupcakes in the city. They’re one of those companies where the minute […]

Butterscotch Mountain Cookies

Have you ever taken a quiz to determine your personality type? I’d taken a few over the course of my career, but Etienne recently had to complete one for some career development he’s doing. On Saturday night we both took the 16 personalities test and had a lot of fun […]

Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

Gobble gobble! This weekend is Canada’s Thanksgiving weekend. Although I love any excuse to unbutton my jeans and eat a ridiculous amount of turkey, potatoes and pumpkin pie (duh), I have to say it feels WAY too early this year! Maybe because most of my food blogging world won’t be […]

Green Monster Crackers

Green Monster Crackers

So, it happened. It snowed yesterday! Really snowed. I am so not ready for this winter weather, as magical as a fresh snowfall can be; however, I do enjoy that feeling of coziness while sitting on the couch watching the wind swirling and blowing the snow around. I also love […]

Salted Caramel Apple Cake

You guys, I needed a win. I’ve been having way too many recipe failures in the kitchen these days; not only is this discouraging, but it means I end up eating a lot of failures. (I have a hard time throwing out food). Well, all that changes today. With THIS […]

Roasted Chimichurri Pork

You guys, it’s officially Fall. I think I have to finally stop holding onto summer πŸ™ If my latest outdoor adventure in the cold and wind leaving me shivering to the bone wasn’t enough to convince me, it’sΒ actually fall now. The last day of summer was yesterday! We’ve been having […]

Peanut Butter Snack Balls

Peanut Butter Snack Balls

I actually did it. I used the word “balls” in a recipe…*sigh*. I couldn’t avoid it forever. I suppose I could have called them “bites” but come on, let’s be real. They’re balls. Sweet, slightly salty, protein-packed BALLS – and you’ve gotta try them! I’ve been working on this recipe […]

crispy proscuitto sandwich

Crispy Prosciutto Sandwich

I’m a bit of a sandwich snob. Don’t get me wrong, if I’m starving (ok, mildly hungry), I wouldn’t turn down a mediocre sandwich. In fact, I’d probably scarf it down in 5 minutes and declare that it is the BEST sandwich I’ve ever had; however, this is primarily due […]

whole wheat blueberry buttermilk pancakes

Whole Wheat Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Paaancakes!! I can’t believe I haven’t posted about pancakes yet. They’re seriously a staple around here – we eat pancakes at least 2-3 times a week. What’s not to love?! In fact, they’re worthy of a list (does anyone else love lists!?): Why do I love pancakes? They are: Soft […]

skillet linguine

Skillet Linguine

Growing up, I was a pretty picky eater. I disliked most meat (WAY too much effort to chew), and I didn’t particularly care for vegetables, unless I had pulled it fresh from the dirt of our garden. If you had asked me back then what my favourite meal was, or […]
