Office Makeover Part 1 – Inspiration

Hey guys!  Sorry we missed a post this week….it’s been a rough one.  Nicole got into a little fender bender (luckily, it hurt her pride and car only) and I’ve been battling a nasty cold.  But we’re on the mend, and so we’re taking it easy this week with a little inspiration post for Nicole’s […]

30 Minute Steak Tacos with Orange Jalapeno Salsa

  OH BOY.  30 minute steak tacos with orange jalapeno salsa.  Yes, it tastes as good as it sounds and looks.  Not going to lie, I had a hard time picking out a name for this recipe.  See, it also has a chipotle lime mayo, the steak is marinated and there’s a few other toppings.  […]

Gluten Free Buckwheat Pancakes with Caramelized Bananas

  Today was my day off and it was kinda blustery outside.  What do I do on a lazy day when I don’t wanna leave the house?  I make pancakes for lunch.   Gluten free buckwheat pancakes with caramelized bananas, to be exact!   Does anybody else have a vast collection of random gluten free flours […]

Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats

  Apple cinnamon steel cut oats.  It’s a classic oatmeal combination, but these are a tad healthier than the instant variety.  I made these oats when I was attempting to come up with a meal plan for Josh.  They are subtly sweet and warming, but with a bit of tang and a good dose of […]

Pickled Beet, Marmalade and Smoked Cheddar Panini

  If you’re hitting a mid-week slump in the cooking department, we’ve got a SUPER easy sandwich for you today.  A pickled beet, marmalade and smoked cheddar panini.  I hope the fact this sandwich has marmalade in it didn’t just scare people away.  This is honestly the best sandwich I’ve had in a while.  Don’t […]

Embracing winter – Stay active this winter by snowshoeing

  Well, we’re almost halfway through January already.  For a province that spends half the year in a frozen state, we sure do like to complain about it.  Maybe we have a right to, but we’ve decided not to dwell on the negative and instead we’re embracing the positive.  So today we’re going to share […]

Taiwanese Coconut Milk Tea

  Brrrr!!  It’s so cold outside.   We’re froze ta det!  And what better way to warm yourself up than a cup of Taiwanese coconut milk tea?   It’s slightly sweet, a bit fragrant, and a lot cozy.   Truly though, we’ve been having some stormy weather for the past few weeks and it just won’t let […]

Vegetarian Corn Chowder with Chipotle Cheese Dumplings

    Good day, Good day.  We’ve got some serious wind and snow raging outside this weekend, so we are keeping warm with this vegetarian corn chowder.  Oh, and we’ve got some fun dough boys (dumplings) as well.  They’ve got heat, smoke and cheesiness.  Oh my.       This is a stick to your […]

Lemon Ginger Green Smoothie

  Happy New Year!!!!!   Lemon Ginger Green Smoothie anyone???  After the holiday season, our bellies need a break and this smoothie was much appreciated this morning.  It’s the season of clean starts and fresh resolutions and we’re not breaking any new ground here, but we love it!   This month we will be taking a […]
