Growing up, there was nothing better than coming home to a warm batch of chocolate chip cookies.
And when I had my daughters some 20 years ago, I loved making them my favorite cookie.
Today, for my boys (7...well almost 8, and 6...yup I started all over again) I made my favorite (and theirs too) cookies...but I give them a little makeover.....
Spring has sprung...the grass is ris....I wonder where the birdies is....
When I was a kid I remember reading that line in a Garfield Comic strip in the weekend newspaper that my parents would get (They loved doing the word search and reading the obituaries - don't ask...)
But every spring I always remember this comic haha. It just makes me giggle.
I love spring, the mornings are still cool with fog, sunrises are beautiful, the air smells so fresh. And the food starts to get lighter it seams. More relaxed.
I do love a good salad all year round, however, spring just gives that freshness to the salads with more flavors. And this quinoa salad does just that!

One of my favorite things to do is make treats. There is something I just love about having sexy little morsels of food around that is healthy. A big bowl of berries or cut up veggie platter with delicious dips is right up my alley. But at the top of that alley....well next to a Vegan Donut....is chocolate!
There was a time where I would only eat milk chocolate...you know...the Areo Bar...yeah that kind of chocolate.
But now my taste buds have matured, along with my knowledge of ingredients, and no I will not eat an Areo Bar any more.
Do you love your breakfast? Do you have a short list of “go-to” recipes? Do you need a bit of inspiration to start eating breakfast again?
Getting some protein at each meal can help with blood sugar management, metabolism and weight loss. This is because protein helps you feel fuller longer and uses up a bunch of calories to absorb and metabolize it. So I'm going to show you how to get the protein, as well as some veggies and healthy fats for your soon-to-be favourite new “go-to” breakfasts.

I love chicken wings...believe me...any flavour, any kind. But they do not like me!
Lately meat just does not sit right with me...or should I say sits too long with me...
Yup once again my digestive system decided to reject meat of any kind, causing huge disruptions in my daily life!
So I needed something to fill the void!
Now I have had Cauliflower "Wings" before...but these ones are the bomb!!
Believe me everyone will love these little gems!
