    I love steak. And chicken. And bacon. Did I mention that I love bacon? You're probably wondering why someone who has very clear carnivorous obsessions tendencies would be posting about chickpeas. You couldn't get anything further removed from a steak than this humble legume. But these easy...

    With the onset of the cooler weather, my mindset and appetite have made a definite shift from the usual summer fare to cravings for comfort food. While each person's definition of comfort food may be different, it's pretty hard to ignore the satisfaction factor of potatoes and cheese. That's why...

    Bananas and I haven't always had the best relationship, but this gluten-free banana oatmeal muffin recipe will appeal to the toughest critics. Of all the fruit out there that I've tried, it's pretty safe to say that bananas are not my favourite. They're not even in my top 5. I think it's a...

    Cupcakes are one of those things that could be amazingly satisfying or sadly disappointing- fortunately for us, these easy vanilla cupcakes fall into the former category. Made with olive oil, these little bites of sweetness have just the right amount of vanilla to support your frosting of...

    I can't believe it's been four years! Four years since D and I have been married. It sounds long when I say it out loud, but it's just a blink of the eye really. It's amazing how much can happen in so short a time. A new home, a baby (and another on the way), masters degrees, vacations... And...

    In an effort to curb my mama guilt and anxiety about Baby E's low veggie intake as of late, I made some of these baby cookies. Not too sweet, hearty, and soft, these small biscuits are adult friendly as well. Feel free to substitute natural peanut butter for the almond butter and half and half...

    There's nothing I love more than strawberries, and while the local season is basically over, you can still get them organically at the produce store. My mom grabbed a couple cartons of said organic strawberries for me Baby E a few days ago. They were already quite ripe and there was no way we...

    So, remember when I made ribs here and then the time before that here? Well, it looks like we've become a bit of a rib house in the last little while. I ran across this recipe for sticky Asian ribs in my newsfeed a while back from Apple of My Eye and I couldn't get them out of my head. They...

    Tried out a new place on the river for date night last week. Got to catch a beautiful sunset with D before arriving home a couple hours later to a hysterical Baby E and frazzled Aunty. Sigh.

    I think we've hit a heat wave over here on the west coast. Other places may look at our low 30 temperatures and think, "That's nothing!" Well, it sure doesn't feel like nothing to me! I'm the type of person who would rather be too cold than too hot. You can always put on another jacket to warm...

    Here we go again.. From memory, I will try to recreate my original post of Gluten-Free and Egg Free Zucchini Pancakes. So I've decided that I'm going to write my posts in a separate place from my Wordpress App before posting it to my blog. Up until this point, being the novice and...

    For me, cake is an anytime, all-the-time food, especially when it's a chocolate salted caramel cake. With E having turned two this past Friday, it was an especially good reason to make (and eat!) cake. Sometimes I can hardly believe it. We survived the first two years! Some days, I wonder how...

    Baby E has had a really rough week with the flu... In other words, my world has been turned upside-down trying to find ways to comfort him when he has been literally uncomfortable. Waking every couple of hours needing to have me next to him has taken its toll on my sanity somewhat. I felt like...

    As the chaos of Christmas reaches a screeching halt on Boxing Day, a piece of quiet finds me as two little feet crunch the gravel and stomp on the wood planks. Thank goodness for this. Thank goodness.

    Just a quick one tonight. We're heading to my SIL's house for a get together tomorrow and I made these up to take along. We signed up to bring guacamole, tapenade, and chips (which we'll still bring) but you know me, I gotta bring something sweet... You can tell it's been a long week by the...
