Spaghetti Squash Carbonara

I don’t even know where to start. It’s been a VERY long time since I’ve spent any time writing, recipe testing and motivating, through my blog! Let’s start with where I left off! I left off with an 11 week old puppy – who is currently sitting at 11 months and 80lbs! I left off…

Dinner Salad

Salad for dinner was something I started enjoying back as a vegetarian. Yes, vegetarian. Was a long time ago and while I feel great not eating meat, that is not something I’m keen to do again. As a kid salad was part of every dinner, it was not the main meal. Salads for any meal…

A long awaited return

Hi everyone!!! I have missed you all so very much.  Hmmm so where have I been?  Why haven’t I written?  Excuses are not in the game plan and therefore I have to admit part of me has just simply not taken the time to write. I’m cooking, yes. Some baking here and there and of…

Tired All the Time?

Ironically on two separate occasions the issue of “feeling tired all the time” came up. This is a feeling that I am not completely familiar with.  While I take my B vitamins (B100 and B12) iron because I’m deficient, have a coffee in the morning and often a green tea in the afternoon, I attribute…

Summer Salad 

Ok so I clearly have a thing for Mexican flavours. I just can’t eat enough cilantro, especially in the summer time.  Today I had the pleasure of meeting up with some friends and checking out Thunderbird (Tbird) Showpark. It’s pre-wedding day and had to get the Farm looking good for the big day tomorrow for my…

Lessons in Gratitude & Moose Ramen

Each day we have things we need to accomplish, things that have to be done in order to sustain ourselves. Working. Eating. Sleeping…but we also have things that we want to accomplish.     One thing I learned several years ago was the difference between ‘wanting’ and ‘shoulding’. You’ll notice that I rarely say things such…

The Biggest Lesson I’ve learned…Being Single

My friend Eddie pointed out that in my post about what I’ve learned since being single (#singlesowemingle), I missed one key point.  He said that when we are single we begin to develope our sense of self and figure out who we are. But the trick is not to lose that when getting back into…

S’more Cupcakes

Often you see “Pinterest Fail” next to a picture of something that looks nothing like what the recipe shows. In this case I have to say Pinterest I kicked your butt! These cupcakes are moist and very easy to make.  My day consisted of a full day at work. It flew by (as it does…

Chicken, Chard and Chickpea Curry

While this recipe didn’t turn out the way I had hoped, it’s still very tasty and easy to make. My friend came over for dinner and I thought this would be a lovely, warming dish to enjoy on a Saturday night in. I made the recipe as per the Pinterest post I found – however…

Flourless Banana Muffins

While I rarely crave sweets, lately with the clean eating I’ve been doing It’s been a bit out of control. Craving sugar and fatty foods but trying to find healthy alternatives has been fun to explore. With my birthday coming up in 4 days and with most of my friends on a cleanse, we are…

Thai Quinoa Salad – Meal planning for the win!

Since I recently went on a Facebook break I have spent more time on Pinterest scoping out recipes and workouts, among other things. I have started to try and be better at only buying a limited amount of food to really avoid throwing stuff out. Isn’t that the worst? The leftovers from my Thai Turkey…

Spicy Eggplant

This Christmas each family took a turn cooking a meal. In the end we had Italian, French, Mediterranean and Malaysian, all delicious! It worked out well that not one person was doing all the cooking not that I would have minded! I did my beef rendang – however I did two different methods and instead…
