Morning Toast Three Ways

Sometimes I find that it’s best to keep things simple. I’m a big time planner when it comes to food; I always try to plan out each meal ahead of time to make my life a little easier. Most of my Sunday mornings are spent at the kitchen table flipping through cookbook after cookbook to decide what I want to have on hand and eat over the course of the upcoming week. Based off of my decisions, I compile a list of ingredients to stock up on. In my mind this is a wonderful system, but my family seems to find it bizarre and unrealistic (I beg to differ). Meal planning is a great way to reduce food waste and to prevent that dreadful moment where you open your empty fridge with a rumbling stomach and a lack of ideas.

Quick Brussels Sprout Slaw

There’s nothing I love more than a good brussels sprout recipe. Seriously though, brussels sprouts are so versatile; you can use them in salads and pastas, you can oats them, shred them, boil them. The possibilities are endless!  Continue reading “Quick Brussels Sprout Slaw”

After months upon months of stress an, seemingly, never ending work, I am finally free. Last Monday I went for my final university interview and am so relived!

I may have my applications done, but I do still have three more months of school to get through.  Continue reading “Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread”

I was testing out a vegan moussaka recipe from one of my all-time favourite cookbooks, Green Kitchen Travelsand as I was whisking the vegan béchamel sauce I had a wonderful thought. Since I am a fairly busy person, I have Continue reading “Ultimate Mac n’ Cheese”

Mashed Butternut Squash with Maple Pecans

I truly love Thanksgiving, funny enough I was actually born on Thanksgiving. It’s really lovely to sit down with family for a big meal in which everyone has made a contribution. I personally think that Thanksgiving is a close second to christmas, there’s the same feel in the air, the feeling of coziness and warmth.  Continue reading “Mashed Butternut Squash with Maple Pecans”

Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie

I really enjoy the convenience of being able to wake up in the morning and have my breakfast ready for me. Whenever I make a smoothie for breakfast I prepare it the evening prior to when I’ll be consuming it. I do this so a) I can just “grab and go” in the morning, and b) I won’t be that jerk who runs the blender at 7am. Continue reading “Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie”
