in pursuit of more

living with just a little less

First of all, I can honestly say I've never met a bowl of lentils and rice I didn't like. Last year, I spent quite a bit of time thinking of new creative ways to cook rice and lentils together, which culminated in this delicious meal that has been a popular one on the blog (even if it is just for that delicious sauce).

Hey everyone! I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful holiday weekend. This recipe is a new one created using lentils from GRAIN, grown by my best friend and business partner's dad Bob Wallace in Tyner, Saskatchewan.

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.

When it comes to making meals at home, I always think that 90% of the effort required is all in the planning.

Well, it's official. It finally rained! With the long overdue rain, comes a collective sigh of relief as our dried out yards and gardens soak up the water and our hearts and minds can rest at ease that the long summer drought is over. Don't get me wrong, it's been an amazing summer - the warmth and sun have been giving and actually healing it…

Howdy all! Real quick, before I put any other words down, the very first thing I need to say is its so good to be back here and to have you all here with me. I've been sitting on this recipe and the pictures of this post for weeks, as we moved the site around to accommodate the new space I find myself existing in…

Welcome to Food Bloggers Against Hunger, a call to action for changes to our food system from over 200 participating food bloggers! Whenever the topic of child hunger comes up I can't tell you the reaction that my body produces. Anger, sadness, more anger, and then an unrelenting feeling that something must be done. And not later, and not by someone else. But by me, right…
