Mother’s Day is just under a month away!
Instead of dealing with the chaos of brunch out, why not give Mom a little bit of serenity at home with a super fancy breakfast in bed? Say it with homemade with my super easy Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Cherry Preserves. (more…)
Brunch is serious business.
You can opt to fight through the crowds and line-up with the tourists for a killer weekend brunch OR you can opt-out and create your own stellar brunch menu at home.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love going out for brunch, but more often then not – I’ve been craving lazy Sundays at home where I’m cooking, cleaning, blogging and meal prepping.
Here are a few easy brunch recipes and ideas for your weekend menu: (more…)

Are you trying to eat healthier this year?
If so, I am on the same train as you then! First off, I am trying to accept that being healthy doesn’t mean I need to be PERFECT about my eating and exercise. I know there are days when I will fall off the healthy food wagon or skip a workout.

This smoothie makes a delicious breakfast on-the-go. Just add your favorite vanilla protein powder to make it a meal and keep you full until lunch time. Or skip the protein powder and enjoy this as an afternoon snack. I like to pair it up with a hard-boiled egg if I’m still hungry. (more…)
One of the things I’ve consciously been trying, is centering my meals more around vegetables with the meat being the side dish or flavouring. This Steak Nicoise Salad totally satisfies all of my red meat cravings while keeping dinner healthy at the same time. Which is great because I’ve been trying to do smoothies for breakfast and salads for dinner more.
I usually buy a nice cut of steak, grill it with some olive oil, salt and pepper. While that’s grilling off – I boil the eggs, cook the potatoes and green beans and assemble the salad. (more…)
