These cookies are perfect for Fall, Thanksgiving, Halloween, or for curling under a blanket with Netflix. This recipe has a such a cozy spice …

How I Meal Prep

I have most definitely gained some of that "Quarantine Fifteen". Stress eating, the sudden abundance of homemade bread, and more drastically in my case, not being as active as I used to be, all contributed to the formation of a rounder abdominal pouch that I was not happy to welcome back. Many of you will …

Creamy Lemon Squares

In this post, I'm gonna pretend that there's no pandemic. This isn't a pantry hack or a "what can you bake with 3 ingredients" quarantine edition. This is simply a fun, easy, summery dessert recipe. The long weekend being the official kick-off of summer inspired me to bake something bright, fresh and light. To me, …

Earl Grey Yogurt Cake

Now more than ever my baking urges have intensified, keeping me on my feet and distracted; focused on something else other than the news or being a Netflix potato. But most importantly, baking is a form of creative expression for me. It's a fun outlet that produces delicious outcomes. Just like for everyone else, this …

Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies

When I decided to add a Recipes section to my blog, I never thought I'd enjoy it as much as I did. I never considered myself a "pro" recipe blogger, and I still don't, but the fact is this: I love food, I love to cook, and I love to bake. But I especially love …

Pumpkin Bread with Salted Maple Butter

Like many, there are certain baked-goods that are my "go-to's" for a select Holiday or season. My lavender cookies are my staple for Spring, my gingerbread cookies are my Christmas must-haves, and my strawberry cupcakes are...well, let's be real, that can be enjoyed anytime of the year. Truthfully, any baked-good can be enjoyed at any time …

Autumn is for Apple Crumble

I recently posted an apple crumble in-the-making in my Stories, and didn't think much of it until I received DM replies asking for a recipe. The people have spoken, so here I am, giving the people what they rightfully deserve. A warm, comforting, tasty apple crumble they can whip up at home on a Sunday …

Camping Meal Ideas

August always brings that bittersweet nostalgia that comes with the end of summer. City carnivals get set up, sunflowers are in full bloom and school bags and pumpkins slowly start making an appearance in retail stores. August, to me, also symbolizes camping season as it's been a ritual of ours to go camping at the …

Cheese & Charcuterie Platters

Ever since I started posting recipe and meal ideas on here, I came to realize that I should really dedicate a post to my "go-to" dish that I always put together when having one friend or a gathering of people over. You've seen hosting ideas on here before, weather it be for chilli, tacos or …

7 Healthy Snack Ideas

There seems to be a divide when it comes to the topic of snacking. Some are all for it (like myself, pro-sacker right here) and some seem to believe that snacking is unhealthy, associating it to a bag of chips or chocolate bars. Luckily for everyone, there are hundreds of healthy variations of what constitutes …

What I Eat and Drink in a Day

This may sound silly but as a visual person, my brain tends to associate a healthy meal with colour. If I see greens, reds, oranges or yellows on a plate, my mind defines it as nutritious. Sure, a pizza pie or a cheesy lasagna can be colourful but hear me out. We've all heard that the …

My Weight Loss Journey and How I Lost 30 Pounds

Today marks ten months since I decided to embark on a weight loss journey that lead me to lose 30 pounds. I constantly get asked what my secret has been, and I always find it funny that people think there's a "secret" to losing weight aside from the obvious eating healthy and being active, which …
