Growing up, Almond Roca was one of my all-time favourite treats. My grandparents ALWAYS had a tub of it kicking around the house and to this day it carries big sentimental value. Fast-forward to the adult me, and I still love the treat…but it’s clearly a ‘sometimes food’! The hot summer days ahead and my fond childhood memories inspired me … View The Post
I’m SO thrilled to partner with Vitamix to give away a fabulous blender in my favourite ‘colour’ (white of course) to a lucky mom! The Vitamix is a complete game changer in the kitchen, making this the PERFECT gift for the foodie or health nut…or anyone really! I’ve had a chance to test drive a number of the Vitamix … View The Post
I doubt that I need to explain how awesome chia seeds are for your health, but since it’s Nutrition Month, I want to put in a good word for them. Not that they need my help, they’ve kind of been the golden child of the superfood movement! Chia seeds may not look like much, but they pack a big nutrition … View The Post
The cookie gods were good to me on the day that I made these beauties. Recipe testing is rarely a straight forward process (understatement of the year), and usually requires multiple failures, with or without tears of frustration, before nailing it.

Check out my post on my tips and tricks for increasing your breast milk supply if … View The Post
I would say that we do a pretty good job of eating well in our house. Most days I have the fridge packed with fruit and veggies with healthy snacks made up and dinner planned to a science. But if I’m going to be honest, there are some days that I’m not on my A game. And the first thing … View The Post
I’m tired. Of picking plums. No really, I am. Don’t get me wrong, I’m super grateful to have a plum tree, and don’t want to sound like a whiner, but this tree HAS NOT STOPPED. Seriously, this small, unassuming, and not-so-pretty plum tree in our yard has proven to be the Magic Porridge Pot of fruit trees (if you haven’t … View The Post
These muffins are moist and not too sweet, perfect for a morning run-out-the-door breakfast or an afternoon snack. I used plums, but you can use any soft fruit you want (nectarines, peaches…)! Freeze any extras for a quick snack or breakfast for hectic mornings, or bake them in mini muffin tins for a perfect snack for the little ones (just adjust … View The Post
