Did you wake up with good intentions this morning? The good intentions to eat right, and start your day off with the mighty-fine whole grain goodness of steel-cut oats? I don’t blame you! These oats are better than the rest. They are minimally processed so your body takes longer to digest them, keeping you fuller, […]

A Healthier Hollandaise


In the past, whenever I would go out for breakfast, there was nothing better than Eggs Benedict. Perfectly poached eggs perched on grilled peameal bacon, sitting atop a crispy buttered English muffin and all smothered in hollandaise sauce. I mean, come on. The PROBLEM with eggs Benedict is this: In the sauce alone, there is […]

Monkey Milk

We all have those items we feed our kids without even thinking twice. Mine is monkey milk. This all began years ago when my kids were very young. They would want a snack in the afternoon, and I can’t remember if they didn’t WANT to eat fruit ir if I was just trying to incorporate […]

Blueberry Muffin Smoothie a.k.a. The Cement Mixer

It was a rainy day in Toronto, when I was craving something sweet and bright for my breakfast. BLUEBERRY MUFFINS! And then I thought about everything I had to do that day…and thought…SMOOTHIE!

I could eat breakfast three times a day. No problem. It’s my favourite meal, hands down. I mean, there are so many options! Eggs, fruit, oatmeal, cereal, pancakes, toast, smoothies…it’s endless, really. But sometimes, after a late night out or on a lazy Sunday morning, you want a greasy breakfast. The kind you can only get only […]

Pina Colada Green Smoothie

Don’t tell me you’re sick of green smoothies!! I promise, this one isn’t too full of vegetables. Seriously, Promise. I’m not a big fan of the ones that have an entire cucumber or cilantro blended into them. I like my smoothies with fruit. That’s just me. And a lot of other people. Why are green […]

Breakfast Smoothies


As you know, I love to bring my kids into the kitchen. They especially love making breakfast which I am 100% encouraging because once I’m comfortable with them making breakfast, that means I DON’T HAVE TO MAKE BREAKFAST. Don’t get me wrong, I love making food for my kids (really, I do) and they’re more […]

Classic Granola Recipe

I have been making this granola for years and years and years. I even packaged and sold it when I lived in Petawawa. It was SUPER POPULAR and I often give it as a gift. But I never gave out the recipe…why? Well, it was one of those recipes you just want to keep close […]
