Awkward Phone Calls & a Recipe for Steamed Chicken Salad Rolls

There’s this little Vietnamese restaurant near my place, and they make the yummiest salad rolls. They’re so simple, so fresh, so, so good. Whenever I call to make an order, the woman on the phone is all, “steamed chicken salad rolls. Okay, and?” And I’m all, “That’s it. Two orders.” “What else?” “That’s it. Just […]

A Cookie of Lies & a Recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Holy moly… it’s already the middle of January. Just so you know, “holy moly” is a much more delicate phrase than the one I’m actually saying out loud. This month has been flying by. I’ve been working away {in an office! At a brewery! It’s like I’m a grown up or something.}, getting ready for […]

Excuses, Excuses & a Recipe for Spiced Butternut Squash Bread

Oh my goodness, you guys, I’m terrible. It’s been way too long. I’d love to have some amazing reason for ignoring you, like “I was injured in the woods and then a mama bear took me in and adopted me as her own and nursed me back to health” or “a world-renowned magazine saw my […]

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 […]

Potato Math & a Recipe for Warm Roasted Potato Salad with Kale

If you know me at all, you know that I’m a meat and potatoes kind of girl. No, that’s a lie. I am neither of those things. In fact, I am everything but a meat and potatoes kind of girl. I grew up in a meat and potatoes household {and, apparently, am trying to reach […]

Winter Madness & a Recipe for Whole-Wheat, Flax, and Hemp Heart Bread

Polar vortex, schmolar schmortex. It’s minus 40 Celsius as I write this {that’s also minus 40 Fahrenheit for our lovely neighbours to the south}, and the world is ending. I mean, it’s March {March!} and it’s easily already the coldest day of the winter. A certain groundhog told us last month that spring was coming […]

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 […]

A Healthy Switch & a Recipe for Quinoa Tabbouleh

Sometimes you just need a good, healthy side. Or a salad. Or, say, a side salad. Tabbouleh is a classic, but it doesn’t offer a whole lot nutrition-wise. Don’t get me wrong; it’s good for you, but what if it was even better? That’d be pretty awesome. Enter: Quinoa Tabbouleh. Switching out the bulgur or […]

A Healthy Boost & a Recipe for Winter Cabbage and Kale Salad

I don’t know what the weather has been like where you are, but here it’s been gross; as in arctic temperatures, tons of snow, and ice covering absolutely everything. It’s the kind of weather that inspires an impromptu move to a tropical island {who’s in?}. It’s also the kind of weather that inspires comfort eating. […]

Clumsy Disasters & a Recipe for Seedy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Finally, we’re all settled in. Sort of. The room full of boxes {otherwise known as the office} says otherwise, but that’s what closing doors and ignorance are for, right? Out of sight, out of mind. We’d be more settled if I hadn’t spent the past week in a concussed stupor, but I was ordered to […]
