Does it get any more ‘summer’ than lettuce wraps? It was love at first bite when I tasted my first lettuce wrap: in fact, it was the FIRST thing that I ever posted on the blog! Lettuce wraps are the PERFECT hot weather food and are such a fun way to feed a crowd. Let’s face it, anything that your … View The Post
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 don’t usually post two days in a row, but I’ve had a busy week already in the kitchen and couldn’t wait to share these recipes: I LOVE a good salad! (Charlie even listed it as my favourite food on my Mother’s Day card, he knows me well). I remember the first time that I went to France and ordered … View The Post

They have so many to choose from, but this one caught my eye. Kind of like the Cadillac of … 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. These peanut butter cookies were an exception. A gal needs a break every once in a while, I’ll take it!
As a busy mom trying to juggle so many different priorities, it’s never been more important to keep myself healthy… and never so difficult! For some reason lunches are the most challenging for me, the days seem to just disappear before I know it. I’m sure I’m not the only one! Which is why my cousin and fellow new mama Jillian … View The Post
