I was that kid in high school and university that everyone hated because I always got my essays done early. While my friends were pulling all-nighters on the weekend before a due date, I was out partying and whooping it up (though, as it turned out, in the company of strangers–since my friends were home […]
Can you feel the excitement? It’s almost the New Year!! Although it wasn’t quite a “white Christmas” here in the Toronto area this year, it’s been great taking some much-needed time to chillax with the HH and Girls, and really enjoy the holidays. And I’m really looking forward to the new year! As is my habit this […]
I was recently chatting with someone who is about to embark on an anti-candida diet, and she mentioned that one of the hurdles stopping her is the no-sugar rule when it comes to chocolate. “I’m not sure I could give up my chocolate,” she said. Because really, what’s better than chocolate? Well, SUGAR-FREE chocolate! I […]
Can you feel the excitement? It’s almost the New Year!! Despite the complete lack of snow here in the Toronto area this year, I’m more energized and primed for the new year than I have been in years (okay, maybe it has a little something to do with my loathing of snow. Yay for partly-green Decembers!). […]
Before I get to today’s recipe, I wanted to mention that the Candida Kick-Start is back! If you’re dealing with candida (or think you are), or just want to clear sugar from your diet, this is the program for you. The two-week guided kick-start provides all the tools and strategies you need for a successful […]
Summer really is the perfect time to throw a party, isn’t it? The weather welcomes outdoor events, quick preparation, colorful foods to adorn backyard tabletops, and people are just generally. . . . happier (okay, so I’m talking about me. In summer, I am generally happier).
It’s holiday season–and what works better at the holidays than a holiday PARTY? My friend Cara is hosting a full month of festivities in the form of a Clean Eating Cocktail Party on her blog, with a new recipe for party food (you know–appetizers, finger foods, snacky stuff and yummy sweet treats) every day this […]
Do you remember what it felt like when you were young, when it seemed everyone else had something you didn’t (but you wished you did)? As a gradeschooler, I watched from the sidelines as my friends zoomed around the neighborhood on their new banana-seat bicycles (my parents told me they couldn’t afford one). Then at age 14, I […]
[“Hey, Mum, this is a really Big Apple!”] How did the HH and I end up in New York last weekend? Well, it all started last December, after the HH had a car accident. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the fender-bender, but that left my honey without a car. And since I’d been planning […]
Fine Cooking’s Strawberries and Cream Layer Cake, ACD-Friendly and Allergen-Free (for Iris’s Birthday)!
As a typical Libra, my baking proclivities tend to vacillate between “Almost-too-simple-to-require-a-recipe” (see LaRaw Bars, Quick Cranberry-Apple Compote, Almond-Crusted Root Vegetable “Fries“) or “So-elaborate-as-to-require-a-week’s-preparation” (see Meaty Spinach Pesto Lasagna, Raw “Linguine” with Bolognese Sauce and Hemp Parmesan, Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Warm Caramel Sauce)–we Libras tend to be “All or Nothing” that way. Somewhere in […]
