in pursuit of more

living with just a little less

As I mentioned in my last post, podcasts are my new normal, and as the somewhat type A being that I am, I'm happy to have this opportunity to open my mind beyond reading (sometimes my eyes are not up for this), and those miles on the treadmill or steps on the stair master (my cardio of choice at the gym) definitely pass easier with…

Lately I've been really into listening to podcasts. They're great for when my brain or eyes are too tired for reading, or I feel like filling my headspace with music could be further upstaged by adding something of even more value. I definitely feel I'm late to the game on this one, but nonetheless I'm glad I finally got the memo! Read More...

Well, guys, it's been a week! It's sometimes hard to accept the way the time keeps flying, and with the years that pass and birthdays that come and go, each of us has the opportunity to re-set, reflect, and give thanks.

This is one of those recipes that you will find yourself making over and over again (and warning, it's borderline addictive too!). Earlier this summer, it seemed as if I was getting hints from all corners to make this simple Salad Niçoise.

Every time I visit her, I realize once again how good this recipe is - and…

This easy combo is one that could be made pretty much any time and any season - as it is comprised of ingredients that are usually stocked in any whole foods kitchen. The difference you'll get when summer comes is all those amazing local potato varieties that will add something different to this soon-to-be-classic salad each time you try it! Use any colour baby nuggets…

This weekend was just a little bit special. Not because we did anything particularly ground breaking - unless you consider painting walls and sweeping the top of our old garage a particular thrill! With three glorious days and zero work scheduled this long weekend, I'd been looking forward to this long weekend of hermit-hood more than anything I'd planned in recent memory. With life these…

Here in Vancouver, it's been raining non-stop for what really feels like weeks on end. There have been (thankfully) a few little breaks here and there, but the rain, it just keeps on coming! Big, juicy drops that make that dreadful drought last summer feel like a far away fairy tale (that we never want to tell again). It's just that time of year for this…
