We are lucky ducks who got an espresso maker as a gift, and I use it ALL the time. Well, I’m pretty good about moderation, so really I use it about 2-3 x per week on myself. I love making different flavoured, healthy oatmeal, and I love lattes, so I thought “why not latte flavoured […]

Easy-Over Egg with Nettles

Easy-Over Egg with Nettles

Mar 11, 2016 | No Comments

An easy over egg atop sautéed nettles with pesto, cheddar & spices on a multi-grain bagel. I think I could eat this organic vegetarian recipe daily!

3 Ingredient Skin Clearing Face Mask

Jan 26, 2015 | No Comments

For those without “perfect” skin, you are always on the hunt for that next product to right all wrongs. Maybe it’s a cream, or a pill, or a detox. Whatever it is, it usually doesn’t last, and we are left searching & wondering all over again. We are our worst critics, and the stress of […]
