in pursuit of more

living with just a little less

I have to start this post by saying I'm waaaaaay late to the party on this one. In the blogosphere, there are recipes that seem to turn up everywhere you go - whether browsing Pinterest, or in blog comments, google searches and elsewhere. This My New Roots recipe is one of them, as it is indeed a classic in every way. A classic that up…

This recipe is another kitchen sink recipe, which came together not unlike last week's soup (or really, like most of the food created in this house). It was inspired somewhat by the colours in this slaw, and coincidentally is dressed with another tahini-based dressing, this time only slightly adapted from Bowl + Spoon by Sara Forte. In my experience, you simply can't go wrong with…

There's no question about it, it's definitely still soup season. There may be blooms popping out of the ground, but these cold soccer-mom mornings still require the heavy down coat along with gloves, the thick fuzzy socks, and a warm hat. A full insulated mug of hot honey lemon water doesn't hurt in the cosy department either, and I love those mornings if I am…

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!

It's a winner from a time perspective for sure, as a few simple tasks in preparation can have you feeling pretty darned happy you've got the ingredients on hand when the clock strikes dinnertime after a hectic workday. I've used Farro here, as…

I'm super excited to share this oldie (but SO goodie!) recipe that's been a classic favourite of mine for as long as I've been cooking. In fact, it's almost too good to share.....but it would be a terribly selfish crime not to.  It's one I've made on and off for years, when the craving for richly flavoured, creamy comfort food hits - but I'm not…

This recipe pretty much sums up all that is good about simple eats. I've been recently inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow's It's All Good, after deciding (with conviction) that my body needed an extended break from dairy and ANY over-processed irritants (even sugar that is not in a whole food form). If you've perused the pages of Gwyneth's latest efforts in print with collaborator Julia Turshen, you're likely…
