          OH NO! She’s done it again, another pumpkin recipe here for you all to enjoy! I’ve never made fudge, at least not the usual kind of fudge you see more frequently around Christmas time. But half of my pumpkin has been sitting in the fridge, just begging to be turned into something deliciously sweet! 

           I would like to say this is...

            Do you ever feel like there’s one thing you just can’t seem to cook or bake? Well I do, and that’s brownies! To this day I have never made a perfect batch of brownies, by this I mean like a big pan of brownies, for some reason if I make little ones in muffin cups, they turn out great but I’ve NEVER cook a full try of brownies right!...

          There’s something about the cooler weather that always makes my diet take a 360 twist for the worst. I tend to forget that fruits and veggies are not optional but necessary, and end up eating a ton of calorie dense foods that make me feel horrible, but warm and cozy at the same time. 

          This year, I decided to pay attention t...

          Who doesn't love a bowl of salty/sweet and crunchy granola? Its pretty much a perfect blend of morning happiness filled with crunchy oats, Sweet dates and perfectly roasted seeds and nuts. Granola is delicious on its own but can be used in so many ways such as served with plant-based milk for a simple breakfast cereal, Used as a topping for plant-based yogu...

          Oh Autumn, It really is the best season! Finally its cold enough and the bees have run away, now I can spend more time outside playing fetch with our 9 month old/100 pound puppy. This Fall I have spent most of my time either outside enjoying the cool weather, or in the kitchen cooking up a storm.... and making a hurricane of dishes to go alone with it. This...

           Its funny how our tastes can change as we get older, Okay side note... Now I'm feeling old! 

         Moving on.... I did NOT like banana bread growing up, it was just, such a boring dessert compared to delicious oatmeal cookies or shortbread cookies or chocolate chip cookies... Can you see a pattern here? I had a bit of a cook...

          I know what you're thinking..... Beef?          Yes, you read that right! A vegan version of a classic Beef bourguignon. This recipe was originally a contender for the Ebook being released this year, But it got beat out by a kick ass recipe... Oh yeah something beat out this recipe by a long shot... Annndddd thats all I'll say for now.. I guess you'll have...

            Over the past week the weather has been cold and grey with non-stop rain. Although it does give me time to sit inside and work on my book, it also gives me a bit too much time to think of things, I really don’t need cluttering up my mind. So rather than just have these thought rattling around up there, I thought I'd  take a few minutes to write & share so...

          Over the past four years I’ve tried so many different creams, but I’ve never even looked into facial oils, I always assumed since I have combination skin with an oily T zone that is somehow simultaneously dry, that oils would just create and even bigger problem to deal with.

          While looking for a good hydrating cream to bring on o...

          Cool air, colourful leaves and tiny snowflakes, fall is here and Mother Nature is getting ready to send the freezing temperatures and snowstorms our way. Without the horrifying temperatures, and unbearable amounts of snow, it just wouldn’t be winter in Canada.

          Not even half way threw October this year and the rush had already be...

September 7, 2018

            Sometimes we all need a little inspiration on what to pack for those work/school lunches. Making a HUGE salad at the beginning of the week is always a winner but, by day three you’re pretty much guaranteed to already be pretty bored with your food! Rather than end up losing motivation half way through the week, why not just make three different salads and...

            I don’t know about you guys, but I spend way too much money on hummus. I know I know, there are some brands that don’t cost a fortune; but, when it comes to hummus I always end up spending at least 4$ on a small container, that will last me MAYBE 3 or 4 days; sometimes less, especially when its too hot and hummus ends up being both my lunch and supper wit...

            You know those days when it gets so hot outside, that regardless of having both air conditioners running all day/night you still cant get the apartment back down to a human temperature? Yeah, that’s the small hell we’ve been living with here in Sherbrooke for the past week. Thankfully its slowly starting to go down, this morning I was even able to get up...

            I realize that I’ve shared a  “lentil Taco” recipe before; but never have I ever, made some as delicious as the ones I felt I needed to share with you here today. Little changes to my original recipe make all the difference in bringing a little more life to these bad boys!

           Served on a soft corn tortilla, with spicy...
