I come to you all today, with a very un-fall-like recipe. No pumpkin, no squash, apples, or anything of the like. In fact I actually chose lemon and coconut- two tropical flavours that are much happier in the spring and summer. So just what am I doing?
Fall is hands-down my favourite season, even with the knowledge that winter will follow. I love the colours, the copious amounts of tea, coffee, cider, hot chocolate, etc. that I can justify drinking, the sweaters, scarves and boots that I get to pull out of hibernation and the cool crisp breezes I feel on my face. I love the flavours of the food and the feeling of a “new start” that the school year always brings. Continue reading →
Today’s post is all about playing catch-up! I was given the opportunity to try a few different products in my absence and wanted to make sure you all knew about them. Also, i wanted to highlight a couple sweet treats in Toronto all you Torontonians need to try before the summer officially leaves.
Remember those Fun Dip candies they used to have (or still have for all I know). If came with a candy stick that you licked and then dipped into candy powder?

So just in case you have all forgotten about it too or have never tried it before, I thought I’d post it here. If you’ve never tried it, I demand you go buy rhubarb before it goes out of season and do it. Continue reading →
Hello all! Yes I’m back and I do apologize for taking an unannounced vacation from blogging. I was just having a little crisis of spirit coupled with looking for another job AND wanting to spend every second outside because it’s so nice out. All of those conditions are not conducive to blogging. Taking a step back from this aspect of my life though helped me sort through all my weird thoughts and find solutions in the real world so it was well worth the break! But what do I know? Maybe none of you even noticed! If that is the case let’s forget I said any of this and get onto today’s post.
Lately, my food has been simple. Eating simple foods is something I have started to do because 1- it’s easier on digestion, 2- it’s fast and easy and 3- it allows you to really taste the food you’re eating instead of masking it with other flavours. And since I’m no great culinary genius, simple food has a much greater chance of tasting good than trying to get complicated. Continue reading →
