Skillet Saturdays: Sesame Noodles

Alright my awesome readers, once again I’m delayed on my Saturday post and I think this means it’s time for a break. But wait! No, I’m not quitting that easily! I’m just going to change up the posts a little bit. I’m a believer in reading the signs and trying to understand your truth. And yes,…

Skillet Saturdays: Kale, Cabbage, Cranberry, Pine Nut & Blue Cheese

I’ve fallen so far behind this week and now Skillet Saturday is Skillet Monday! I apologize to anyone who has been waiting 😦 I moved over the weekend and I was overwhelmed with how amazing my friends are! It took no time at all and I feel so blessed. I finally got to bed sometime after midnight…

Skillet Saturdays: Red Pepper Egg-In-A-Hole

Well, the past month feels like a whole year. I’ve experienced the full range of emotions and although I’m still processing it all, I feel steadier, though also humbled and more gentle through it. I’ve been reminded of the blessing of family, the fragility of life, and the importance of health and honoring my body…

Skillet Saturdays: Lemon Berry Crumble

As we get closer to Christmas time seems to go faster and faster. The holidays can be so stressful and hectic, but they can also be really fun and cheery (and delicious). I try really hard to enjoy each moment and refrain from living in the future – planning and projecting. Cooking and eating keeps…

Skillet Saturdays: Rainbow Veggies

Today’s skillet is very simple and so beautiful! A standard-sized cast-iron skillet is perfect for two or three people but you could definitely make a bigger version in a casserole pan or an extra-large skillet. I LOVE color! In my environment,  and definitely in my food. Having a wide range of color pigmentation in your…

Skillet Saturdays: Gluten-Free Banana Bread!

I’ve been gluten-free for a couple of years now, and apart from the holiday cheats or the odd organic sourdough sandwich or Jamaican Ginger Beer, I remain pretty true to it. However, I don’t support a lot of the ingredients in gluten-free alternatives (non-organic soy and/or corn, chemical additives, etc) and I also don’t like…

Chai Quinoa Granola

Try this! It’s just mixing ingredients together, stirring in oil and syrup and putting it in the oven. This granola is great for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or I even have it for dinner sometimes when I’m really hungry and get home from work too late to cook. This recipe has healthy fats, proteins, slow-burning…

Skillet Saturdays: Huevos Rancheros {Gluten-free}

Huevos Rancheros, or “Rancher’s Eggs” is a bright and vibrant, one pan meal perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner and a lovely, easy option when cooking for guests. I’ve always loved Mexican-inspired foods and spices. When I was a little girl my special birthday dinner was always tacos, although back then I was the pickiest…

My Favourite: Bone Broth!

Bone Broth is one of my absolute favourite superfoods. It is extremely nourishing. And although it may be a bit intimidating the first time, it is actually very easy and inexpensive to make and WELL worth getting into the habit of. Why is it so great? Let me tell you. Let food be thy medicine…

Happy Organic Week!

 Organic is something we can all partake of and benefit from. When we demand organic, we are demanding poison-free food. We are demanding clean air. We are demanding pure, fresh water. We are demanding soil that is free to do its job and seeds that are free of toxins. We are demanding that our children…
