Peach Crisp Smoothie

Homemade Clamato Caesar

Homemade Clamato Caesar

It’s iconically Canadian. It’s acceptable to drink morning, day or night. It’s a cocktail, it’s a meal or both… It’s the Caesar! Thanks to my dad and his badass Caesar making skills, the Caesar was my first ever cocktail, or should I say mocktail, since I was 12 years old when I tried my first virgin Caesar. Ever since that day, the Caesar has held a special place in my Canadian...

Vegan Chocolate Superfood Cupcakes

One slice of decadent organic chocolate cake made from REAL ingredients (not the kind of cake you find from a big chain grocery store) is a real treat. I also love making cupcakes from scratch but find most recipes call for waaay to much sugar, eggs, and...

Chocolate Chia Pudding

I stumbled upon this chia pudding recipe accidentally one evening while looking for something to make for the next morning’s breakfast. I had some leftover coconut milk that needed to be used up, so I combined it and some cacao powder and chia seeds into a mason jar. I didn’t worry much about measuring out the ingredients… which turned out to be a huge mistake! Because it turned out waayyy...
