I hope you enjoy this lovely citrus fruit salad with seasonal blood orange, pink grapefruit and sweet little clementines.
I don't love bananas, I don't hate them either - I just don't care about them too much. But, every now and then I feel like one - so I buy a bunch and eat one and then the rest tend to make it into the freezer overripe waiting for a banana bread recipe. So … Continue reading Oven roasted banana chips
Anyone that knows me, knows I love salads - I once even had a blog that was solely dedicated to salads, I just wasn't that great at updating it at the time. I also love burgers, pizza and other delicious fatty foods; but salads are my jam. I'm one of those people who believe that … Continue reading Refreshing winter slaw
Well it's that time of year again when you get to look back and reflect on the past year. I honestly can't believe it's already December 31st, 2017.

Truth is, I wasn't one of those people who was sure I'd have kids. I have had the same feelings about … Continue reading We’re having a baby…….eeeeek!!!
The other day I went to my favourite little fruit and veggie market in Calgary and bought a few bags of Okanagan peaches. I'm probably a little bias because I love love love the Okanagan, but these peaches are off the hook. They are sweet, and juicy - just downright perfect. So I searched the … Continue reading Upside down peach cake
I'm guessing this article won't make me very popular - but that's never been my thing so I'm going to write it anyways. I have often wondered about food trends, I mean where do they come from, who decides what the cool thing to eat is at the moment, and why do people blindly jump on … Continue reading Please stop putting things on toast…
Ok, so I'm not vegan, I'm not even vegetarian. I'm just more conscious of things now then I was before. So we try to eat vegetarian in our house at least 3 times a week, eat more fish and less red meat, pork and poultry. So far, I find that part to be pretty easy. … Continue reading Vegan almond salted caramels
