Scenes from the Week

Another (VitaMix) Bites the Dust

Folks…it’s happened again. 3rd time is not a charm. It wasn’t better the second or third time around. My Vitamix (a.k.a “Mighty Vity”) has broken down. Again. For the third time in less than four years. *sad face* And it’s the same problem again. Motor is going, nothing is happening. Just the poor makings ofContinue Reading

My Homemade Hummus Recipe

I love hummus. I use it almost daily, whether for dip for my veggies or to make one of my 3 year-old’s favorite lunch: pita-rollups (hummus on a tortilla rolled up and cut in half). I’ve always bought hummus pre-made in the store because it was just easier and it tasted great. As the familyContinue Reading

The Path I Plan on Walking in 2014

As I look ahead to 2014, I’m approaching it with a surprising amount of ease. Being more or less benched these last 5 months has forced me to slow down and re-evaluate what it is I want to accomplish in 2014. A lot of thought, prayer and even a few tears were shed but IContinue Reading

Your Ultimate Kitchen Gift Guide

I’m going to start off by saying that you cannot buy anything for your kitchen that will make you a better cook. Trust me, if that was the case, I wouldn’t spend half my food prep time scraping burnt crap off my kids grilled cheese sandwiches. What a kitchen gadget CAN do is bring someContinue Reading

5 Tips to Cooking for Vegetarians

Since transitioning to a diet that is about 85% plant-based, 15% vegetarian, I’m pretty sure I’ve put the fear of God into anyone that’s even thinking about inviting me over to eat. My mum in particular was having a really hard time figuring out how to cook something for Thanksgiving this year, that I wouldContinue Reading

The Best Cauliflower Soup I’ve EVER Made

It may not look like much but this was seriously the most amazing soup I’ve made in a looooooooong time! Cauliflower is always cheap in the fall and since I’m cheap…you can see the attraction. The problem is, I’m not a fan of raw cauliflower unless it’s dripping with dip, which isn’t the most idealContinue Reading

Scenes from the Week: Winter is Here!

Not as much prep as I normally do. Lots of veggies though! Plus a refill of my homemade Taco Seasoning (recipe here). I made muffins too but forgot to take a pic. With a fresh batch of taco mix, I think I’ll be simmering some chili this week! Oh yes I did! I think IContinue Reading

My Minimalist Freezer Dilemma

I missed Mayhem Monday this week because it was a stat day here and most of my day was spent with my family. No apologies coming, family first, blog second. It was definitely much needed because on top of some awesome quality time with my kiddos and some friends we had over for dinner thatContinue Reading
