Berry Love & a Recipe for Blueberry Soba Noodle Salad

Guys, I don’t know if you know this, but it’s blueberry season. Has been for a while now. Okay, of course you know – if you’ve been in a grocery store or to a farmer’s market {and haven’t been living under a rock or in a cave}, it’s pretty clear to see. There are blueberries […]

Breakfast Goodness & a Recipe for Whole-Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

Pancakes are kind of magical, aren’t they? They’re so nostalgic {outdoor pancake breakfasts in the summertime, pajama-clad brunches with the family, my Babcia’s pancakes for dinner – slathered in sugar and jam}, so easy to make, and – most of all – so damn tasty. I love how you can add practically any ingredient to […]

Warm Weather People & a Recipe for Summer Fruit Cinnamon Rolls

Are you a summer person? This shouldn’t be too tough of a question, really. Either you are like me and you find yourself seeking out sunshine, you hate wearing pants and closed-toed shoes, and you live for patio season; or, you prefer frostbite, dreary weather, and sadness. Too much? Okay. Still, I can’t get enough […]

Lemony Times & a Recipe for Orange Blueberry Muffins

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Okay, not that long, but still… an awful lot can happen in a short time. If you’re up in my neck of the woods, you know that the last few weeks have been tough in Calgary and area. There was widespread flooding that affected countless people and devastated entire […]

Summer Hoarding & a Recipe for Berry-Lemon Cobbler with Cornmeal Topping

I’ve been thinking lately {about the summer}; the belly-aches of eating too much fruit, the dehydration from basking in the sun for too long, the collective over-indulgence that could easily be described as “summer hoarding”. It’s not a new thing. Even when I was a kid, my family could see the signs. “Don’t eat too […]

Spring Rain & a Recipe for Little Lemon-Blueberry Cakes with Lemon Glaze

I think Calgary is under the impression that it is Vancouver. After the winter that, by Alberta standards, never was, last week we saw an uncharacteristically large amount of water fall from the sky. While daunting {I’m more of a sunshine girl}, the rain was surprisingly calming; it reminded me of the unforgiving tropical storms […]

A Springtime Treat & A Recipe for High-Fibre Blueberry Muffins

Winters here can be long and, for lack of a better word, intolerable. While this year has been exceptionally nice, we haven’t completely missed out; we had a cold snap a week or so ago that brought temperatures in the negative thirties {for those of you working in Fahrenheit, it’s roughly the same}. Needless to […]

A Perfect Potluck & A Double Blueberry Buttermilk Tart

As I continue to adapt to big city life (feel free to sing Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” … I’ll wait), I’m constantly finding myself in some pretty fantastic situations… … like stumbling upon beautiful Italian shops, dining in très délicieux French bistros, and exploring the city’s farmer’s markets. Just last week I attended a potluck […]

A Beautiful Dessert: Summer Fruit Galette

Every time I go to the farmer’s market, I am rendered nearly speechless. The tables and baskets are always full of new fruits; variations I didn’t know existed… perfectly ripened, perfectly plump… The other day I picked up a bundle of Santa Rosa plums. I can’t decide how to use them just yet… perhaps I’ll […]

Blueberry Quinoa Muffins

Have you ever cooked with quinoa? I’ve used it before – cooked it like rice, and ate it as a side dish with some olive oil, sea salt, and garlic. It’s delicious. It’s also extremely nutritious. Quinoa is high in protein (with all nine amino acids, it’s a complete protein – a rare quality in […]
