Zucchini Bread

Nothing says summer like sweet, spicy zucchini bread. As I write this my house smells delicious of cinnamon and vanilla as I make yet another batch. I don’t know about you but my garden (Jonny’s garden?!?) is really out of control. We are getting anywhere from 2-6 new zucchinis a day! And I could probably …

Homemade Nutella

This is not my original brain-creation. I was actually inspired to make homemade Nutella by Buzzfeed Food. BF Food actually inspires a LOT of my cooking. First off, why would you want to make your own Nutella? Well, here in Canada Nutella is stupidly expensive. I rarely ever buy it because I know how simple …

Nutella Brownies

The first time I saw this recipe for these nutella brownies on pinterest I knew I would have to try it. I have to admit that nutella is pretty expensive around here so you could definitely make brownies from scratch for a lot less money. Or, you could make nutella from scratch which is so …

Jonny and I love to have a garden. Mostly it means that I pick out a whole bunch of things I want to grow and Jonny plants what he feels like while I am gone at work. I wonder if we are the only couple who argues over our garden… This year I was determined …

Regrow Celery

I have come across yet another item that can be bought from the grocery store, used and the regrown. Brilliant right!?! I am in love with the idea of regrowing my groceries. It saves a little money but more importantly, it feels less wasteful. I have been using the same green onions I bought over …

Healthy Berry Sorbet

This is such a simple recipe (if you can call it that) that it sort of feels like cheating. I don’t have a big sweet tooth the way I know a lot of people do. This means that I rarely have sweet snacks stocked at my house so when I DO get a sweet tooth …

Morning Power Bowl

I think that the best way to start the day is with fresh whole foods. Now that the warm weather is finally here I am loving the fresh summer flavors of berries. My “Power Bowls” are all so different from one day to the next but follow the same general formula. 1) Fruit – any …
