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. […]

End of Winter & a Recipe for Cranberry Yogurt Muffins

It’s hard to believe that spring is just one week away. While we’ve had a pretty mild winter, it still feels like the warmer months were ages ago; like it’s been years since the my skin soaked up the sun, since I jumped in the frigid river just to cool down, since I spent a […]

Cold Winter Days & a Recipe for Slow Cooked Bison Chili

I woke up this morning to the sound of trees blowing in the wind outside my bedroom window. It was the kind of wind that you hear in depressing movies {or imagine in books that are set in mid-winter Russia}. It was cold. It was whistling. No – it was howling. It was one of […]

Changing Weather & a Recipe for Banana Flax Muffins

Today it feels like spring. I know that it’s just nature deceiving me, though. I’m tempted to whip out a maxi dress, throw on some sandals, and sport some unnecessarily large sunglasses, but I know better {also, it’s only seven above today, but that’s how quickly we Canadians adjust to changes in weather}.

Whew, what a year. I remember sitting at my favourite pub {we call it the Winchester} a year ago, reflecting and conspiring with C over a pint. What will 2012 hold? I’ll tell you now – we couldn’t have predicted what was to come. It was crazy. It was hectic. It was absurdly overwhelming in […]

Snowy Autumn & a Recipe for Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins

We’re right in the peak of autumn here. I don’t know what that means to you, wherever it is that you are, but here, it means snow. In fact, had the calendar not shown me that it is still October, I’d be telling you that it’s the middle of winter, and all that nighttime cold […]

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 […]

Forever Breakfast & A Recipe For Baked Blackberry French Toast

If it were up to me, I’d eat breakfast for most meals. Bacon, eggs, hash browns and toast; crepes with fruit and cream; pancakes smothered in maple syrup; waffles – also, obviously – smothered in maple syrup… the list goes on, and on, and on. Then there’s this Baked Blackberry French Toast. I’d not only […]

A Wise Woman’s Advice & A Recipe for 10-Grain Whole Wheat Bread

I’m trying. Oh, how I am trying. I’m trying so very hard to stick to a clean, healthy diet – as part of a hapless resolution, naturally – and it seems that I’m constantly being tested. It started out wonderfully, and then about a week into it, things started to go wrong; events popped up, […]

It’s Not Easy, Being Green & A Recipe For Kale Chips

In the wise words of Mr. Kermit the Frog, “It’s not easy being green.” It’s a phrase we know all too well; just not in the sense that he intends (unless you are, in fact, green. In that case, ignore this entire post.). Rather, at this point in the year – otherwise known as the […]
