Roasted Corn and Chickpea Salad

Roasted Corn and Chickpea Kale Salad

Hooray! The weekend is here. I’m happy to say that I’m going to spend the evening making, and then likely photographing (depending on the success of my recipe) some birthday cupcakes. Not just any birthday cupcakes. Birthday cupcakes for a group of 3 and almost 3 year olds! When your group […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

1.  Zucchini. So much zucchini!! I love having an excess in the summer, so every year we’ve been planting 3 zucchini plants. Keep your eye out for LIMO zucchini recipes coming soon! 2.  Recipe fails. We’re currently eating our way through a lot of frozen something that didn’t work out quite […]

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

1.  How yummy do these mini raspberry cheesecakes look? I made them for my father-in-law for Father’s Day. I followed this super easy recipe from tutti-dolci. It’s really a must try! 2.  I’m posting this from Portugal. PORTUGAL!! We got here early today….I hope to have lots of photos for […]

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 […]
