green smoothies

I’ve been to a few Vitamix demonstration tables at various food events around Vancouver and have seen them make green smoothies/sorbets that have been DELICIOUS, and my new project this month was to try and figure out that tricky mix of how many vegetables I can make a smoothie with while still making a good … Continue reading

apple almond coconut muffins

My muffin recipe experimentation continues! I am *really* happy with how this flavour turned out! I grated an apple, then decided that cinnamon, coconut and almond would go together nicely.

I’m back! I can’t believe March has passed so quickly! My life this month was consumed with work travel, personal travel and moving into my new place, and haven’t had a chance to post as many recipes *ahem* any *ahem* as I’d like. The good news is that I’m ready to set my roots in … Continue reading

chai-chocolate banana smoothie

It seems like there is a theme right now in my recipes where I use two particular ingredients: bananas and chocolate, and my many ways in which I have the combo for breakfast! 😉 This recipe came about by some morning creativity when I realized I was out of blueberries, and only had banana to … Continue reading

The Kitchen sink soup recipe is one of my favourites that I’ve created – it’s easy, nutritious, and satisfying. It’s perfect for a cold day, if you’re feeling under the weather, or just as (my current) every day favourite meal. I call it the kitchen sink recipe because the recipe is versatile – I use … Continue reading
