in pursuit of more

living with just a little less

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…

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! 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…
