This banana pancake recipe is going to change the way you view gluten free and vegan eating (if you have some reservations about it). The first time I had the pleasure of eating this wonderful breakfast was when my roomie and fellow yogi friend Frances made them for us at Wanderlust last summer. The smell […]

Aubergines, sauce babeurre et pomegrenade

plenty, yotam ottolenghi, vegetarian, végétarien, recettes, recipe

J’adore cette recette d’aubergines de Yotam Ottolenghi car son apparence est plutôt impressionnante mais elle n’est vraiment pas compliquée à faire. C’est une belle option végétarienne à servir en petite portion comme entrée ou en plat principal. Si jamais la pomegrenade est un fruit qui vous intrigue mais que sa préparation vous intimide, je vous […]

I had an image of this awesome chocolate cake in my mind for two weeks before I finally caved and decided to make it. I chose a Mary Berry recipe because, well, I simply adore Mary. Not that many people know her in Canada but after watching all five seasons of The Great British bake […]

The first product that attracted me to the Crawford Street skin care line was their lemon deodorant cream ($14). I have tried COUNTLESS natural deodorants in the hopes of finding one that actually works and so far none have made the cut. That was, until this one! I did three test runs with the Crawford […]

In addition to making my grandmother’s gingerbread cookies with my favourite cousins, it’s been a tradition of mine for the last few holiday seasons to make these delicious chocolate-peppermint Christmas cookies. This year, as a gift to friends and family, I decided to make a batch and distribute them along with my new Red Fairy […]

If you enjoy food (who doesn’t really?) you are going to have some major moments thanks to the amazing restaurants in Barcelona. The city is known for its restaurants but because of the sheer quantity of them it can be hard to sort out the tourist traps from the true gems. We did get caught […]

Chocolate banana almond butter bites

We all know by now that chocolate is the best invention ever. We must also acknowledge that if we start eating it as much as we would really like to, we are going to have to wear stretchy pants full time. This is when healthy substitutes to the traditional high calorie (and often unhealthy) chocolate […]

Avant, lorsque je manquais d’inspiration dans la cuisine, repas classique était le saumon en croûte de Josée di Stasio. Je l’ai faite tellement souvent que Robert la nomme maintenant “saumon à la Geneviève”. Signe qu’il était peut-être temps de varier mes recettes de poisson… Un peu de créativité s’imposait alors j’ai fait quelques recherches. C’est […]

Barcelona Day 3: stunning Sitges

You can tell by looking at the clouds in this first photo that it was a very moody day when we visited Sitges. Mother Nature was kind enough to hold off the rain until we headed back to the train station so we actually didn’t mind the dramatic skies. It created a certain mysterious atmosphere. […]

Hi guys! I am settling back into a certain routine after spending the last two months in Europe, but if there is one place that I don’t like routine it’s with my meals. Who wants their breakfast to be the same old same old boring cereal and toast? Quinoa allows me to keep things exciting […]

Day 2 in Barcelona was so inspiring. We saw Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, Parc Güell as well as Plaça d’Espanya and Montjuïc. We took one of those hop on hop off double decker tour buses to see as much of the city as we could and then decide where we would allocate more time […]
