Easy Carrot Soup Recipe

It’s that time of year again, where the leaves change and the temperatures drop, and I start grumbling until about May or June about the weather. I can’t lie, I do think that Fall is beautiful and there are some nice perks to it (I can run without wanting to die, all the squash and other roast vegetables, blablabla) but I think we can all agree that I’m a Summer girl. It’s not my fault…

Easy make-ahead egg muffin breakfast

One of my favourite things to eat in the morning is eggs. On weekends or days when I don’t have to work, I will almost always eat a little bit later in the morning and make myself two fried eggs. I like to have them on a variety of bases – two pieces of toast with cheese or chopped avocado, a toasted and buttered bagel, or mashed leftover sweet potatoes. I’ve even had them on…

Recipe: Venison Sausage with peppers, onions, and mushrooms

Recently a friend of ours sent George home from band practice with a ziploc bag of venison in sausage format. I am a HUGE deer meat fan. Growing up, my dad and I used to go camping next to a beautiful lake and we’d celebrate our first day by starting up a campfire and he would cook two venison steaks in a pan right there. It was so good. I have also inhaled a great…

Healthy Fast Food – Hummus and Avocado on toast

One of my favourite foods on the planet is definitely the humble avocado. It’s full of the good kind of fats that we actually want and need to eat (it helps with the good cholesterol), it has a ton of healthy fiber, and a decent amount of potassium, folate, and vitamins. On top of that, they’re really tasty! I sometimes have great intentions of doing fun things with my avocados like turning them into guacamole,…

Fast & Easy Baked Salmon

I love salmon. It’s so versatile and delicious and as long as it’s caught wild as opposed to factory farmed it’s a super healthy fish too. It’s packed full of omega-3 fatty acids which is great for your heart. And did I mention delicious? Because it is. Strangely though, as much as I love it and as frequently as I’ve ordered it or inhaled it when I’m out somewhere, I’ve never actually made salmon for…

Simply Straws = I will never buy plastic straws again! (Giveaway)

I have two kids who love to drink anything and everything out of straws. The thing is, straws are great for avoiding stains on your teeth and they’re fun, but I hate constantly throwing out the flimsy disposable straws (or worse, finding them strewn randomly around the house). Even the washable plastic straws aren’t much better. Yes, they cut down on waste and that also means they’re a better value than a one-time use straw,…

Fast and easy portobello mushroom burgers

I realize that summer in the northern hemisphere is dwindling to an end (excuse me while I sob). The other night I thought I would wash my supper dishes up before heading out to check on the status of my wild garden. By the time I was done it was already dark outside. The temperatures are dipping, it gets dark earlier, and people are dragging out their pullover sweaters and boots. I do love the…

Healthier alternative to Hamburger Helper

If we’re all honest, the truth is that as much as we want to be healthy and eat great meals, sometimes life gets in the way and we’re tempted to go for something that’s really not so healthy. The perfect example came last night. We were supposed to have an early BBQ. George had to play that evening (yes, on a Sunday; a rock star’s work is never done!) but he had offered to make…
