Healthier Double Chocolate Muffins

So, Sunday night was the much anticipated season premiere of Game of Thrones!! If you’re not a GOT fan I apologize for my enthusiasm but I have been waiting over a year for this season to kick off! It did not disappoint. So good. The opening scene with Aria!? I […]

Thai Green Chicken Curry

I’m so happy to introduce you all to what is legitimately one of Etienne and I’s favorite dinner dishes. We’ve been making this for a few years now, slowly tweaking it along the way. You might have heard me mention a while back that one of our little traditions is to […]


Chapter Five – Portugal

Portugal! Wow, what a country. Totally underrated, in our humble opinion. Etienne and I did not really know what to expect when we went, just that it was somewhere that always seemed like a neat place to go. It was amazing!! We only had 7 full days, but we made the […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Biscotti

It feels a bit odd to be posting a recipe that requires a warm oven when the average temperature lately is 27 C – BUT – these are so light and summery that they felt like the perfect July recipe. Also, I owe Etienne biscotti from a very loose “deal” that we […]

cherry lime whiskey sour

Cherry Lime Whiskey Sour

I’m baaaack! It is so weird that I didn’t post anything for over a week (gasp)! Since starting this blog I have never gone that long without posting something. I guess that’s because I didn’t go on a vacation for a really really LONG time!! Anyway, now that I’ve got […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

Healthier Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

The last time we talked, I was about to embark on a 4 hour drive with my two littles, by myself. WELL I’m happy to say that the boys did great! There was not enough sleeping, but only a bit of crying, so overall I can’t complain. We made it safe and […]

trail mix popcorn

Trail Mix Popcorn

I really should have called this recipe “road trip popcorn”, because that is the purpose it was created for. This morning, my friends, I embark on a solo-parenting journey with both boys, a 3 1/2 to 4 hour trip to beautiful Kimberly, BC. I was feeling mighty confident when I agreed to […]

double streusel strawberry rhubarb muffins

Double Streusel Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins

If you read my 10 Thoughts yesterday, you’ll be expecting an unveiling of a strawberry-rhubarb concoction of some sorts. Well, throw back the curtains! It’s here! Let me introduce you to my all-time favorite summer muffin. And yes, you read that right. DOUBLE streusel. If I had it my way, all […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

1.  It was our anniversary yesterday! We celebrated with some bubbly and these mini molten skillet lava cakes. All in our backyard of course, while the kids slept. How cute are these mini cast iron skillets!? 2.  Having to stop to pee while on a mission – these missions include grocery […]

cherry-coconut smoothie bowl

Cherry-Coconut Smoothie Bowl

OK – I know a smoothie bowl is nothing astonishing or inventive for all you foodies out there, but to me, it’s a new thing. And a great thing. How have I taken this long to try making my own!? I’ve been seeing them all over Instagram and Pinterest for […]
