Vegan Chocolate Pudding from Scratch

Vegan Chocolate Pudding From Scratch

Woah…we are just 1 week away from Easter!! Really? And Olivia is almost 9 months old now. I cannot believe we have now spend as much time with her as we have spent anticipating her arrival. This last month was one of many firsts – and not only pleasant ones. Olivia got sick for the first time….

Mini Salmon Spinach Quiches

Mini Salmon Spinach Quiches

This post was brought to you by the makers of French’s Dijon Mustard. I received compensation to write this post through the French’s Easter Program. All opinions expressed are my own.  I love this time of year. Winter is (slowly but surely) coming to an end, making way for Spring with warmer weather and sunshine….

Baked Tortellini + Broccoli with Creamy Cauliflower Sauce

Baked Tortellini and Broccoli with Creamy Cauliflower Sauce

Pasta and creamy sauce were my favorite foods growing up. To my dismay, I had to realize that Konrad (my husband) doesn’t care much for pasta or any kind of creaminess. I can’t explain the first – like seriously, who doesn’t like pasta? But the later might actually be out of some sort of ‘self-preservational’…

Creamy Vegetable Soup with Leek (dairy-free)

Creamy Vegetable Leek Soup

Compared to last year, we’ve had such a mild winter here in Calgary. After a weekend of freezing weather and snow, the sunshine is right back with balmy temperatures and warm Chinook winds that melt all the snow away.

Irish Soda Bread with Spelt Flour

Just another 2 weeks and St. Patrick’s Day is here. Is it just me or is this year just flying by in a whirlwind? I have to say, Olivia is keeping me busier than ever before. So I squeezed in her 7-months picture update on Instagram just before the next months update will be due…

Baked Cheese Sticks with Leek and Chives

It’s the end of February! If it were up to me, spring could start March 1. We got a little foretaste of warmer weather over the last few days. And then everything changed in an instant. From 12C (53F) degree weather at noon to snow showers at supper time. Calgary weather is crazy, but at…

Greek Spinach Rice – Spanakorizo

Spanakorizo - Greek Spinach Rice

Olivia and I returned from our trip to my parents over the weekend. As expected, Olivia was a trooper again. In the airport and on the plane she made everyone around her smile. She is a super-independent baby and hasn’t fallen asleep in my arms for months. So there were a few minutes of complaining…

My week in Kelowna with my family is slowly coming to an end. Tomorrow – just in time for Valentine’s Day – Olivia and I fly back home to Calgary. It is so refreshing though, to have a change of scenery. I try to do very little blog work and savor the moments as much as possible….

Tuscan Chicken Salad

Tuscan Chicken Salad

Remember my recommitment to healthy food at the beginning of the year? Well, things are going pretty well so far. I still like my treats a little too much, but at least I try to make them as nutritious as possible with only healthy sweeteners (like these, this and these) . One thing I have…

Coconut Macaroon Clouds

We are just one short week away from Valentine’s Day! And today is the day we’ll be driving through the Rocky Mountains once again on our way to visit my parents in Kelowna, BC. Konrad loves these long road trips! For him it is a time to think, reflect and come up with new ideas. I…
