in pursuit of more

living with just a little less

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. Last week was my 39th birthday, and with it came the gift of one last year to top off what has been a decade…

This recipe has really been a long time coming on the blog, with 100% thanks to my mom, who never fails to adequately prepare for a visit from her kids with a freshly made pan of this delicious vegan pâté (among other delicious goodies, including her famous frozen brownies). 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…

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…

This meal was so easy and so good I couldn't help but share it here on the blog for all of you. 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…
