Tuscan Bean and Quinoa Salad

Blood, sweat and tears went into my dinner on Monday night. For real. Picture this: It's the last day of the Thanksgiving long weekend. I get home from a coffee date with a friend, toss my keys on the counter, take of my shoes, change into my PJs (#priorities), and open the fridge to figure [...]

Quinoa Trailblazer Salad + 6 hacks for make-ahead salad success

For as long as I can remember, my younger sister and I have always been responsible for making our school lunches. It was something my mum established as a norm for us growing up - a non-negotiable. To this day, I've always been more of a lunch packer than someone who eats out. You might [...]

Baby Heirloom Tomato, Cucumber and Quinoa Salad

Yesterday morning I set out on what should have been a lovely sunrise run along the sea wall. The beach was on my left side, the park was on my right, and a few fellow early morning enthusiasts shared the path with me. About 15 minutes in, I was just getting into my meditative running groove when [...]

Summer Bliss Salad

Lately it seems that a large influx of travel-related promo emails have been landing in my inbox. I don't open many, but skimming the subject lines has been triggering thoughts about epic vacations, exotic beaches and luxurious resorts. Add to this the fact that Wanderlust Whistler happened this weekend, plus the stream of Facebook photos that give me a glimpse into all of the [...]

Shrimp and Quinoa Paella

Ever since I moved out of my university dorm and had a place to call my own, one of my favourite things to do is host friends for dinner. I think the origins of this interest comes from watching one of my aunts, who has been the definition of hostess with the mostest for as long [...]

Spring Pea Quinoa Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

It's getting to be that wonderful time of year again. The sun is up longer and the temperatures are rising. Shorts and flip flops are coming out of hibernation, and in my case, so are my shockingly white legs. The prospect of unwinding after work on a patio, lying on the grass in a park, or going [...]

Twice-Baked Stuffed Butternut Squash

This past weekend it rained - like, a lot. I had a bunch of ingredients ready in the fridge for recipe creation, but even with floor-to-ceiling windows in my condo, no amount of white foam board reflectors and Lightroom post-processing was going to create a decent setting for food photography. Luckily, there's been a really great recipe waiting in [...]

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

Over the weekend, I made the decision to put away my portable air conditioner for the fall and winter. Earlier this summer, I caved and decided I absolutely NEEEEEEEDED an air conditioning unit because I was waking up in the middle of the night, sweating like I'd just run a marathon. The kind I bought is [...]

Tuna and Quinoa Tabbouleh

Happy humpday! Today’s actually more like a Thursday for me because tomorrow I’ll be jet setting alllll the way over to Calgary. 1 hour flight = totally not jet setting, but let’s pretend. It’s been over 5 years since I last visited my home province of Alberta, and about 10 since my last trip to [...]

Summertime Quinoa and Greens Salad

There's way more to this week's recipe than just quinoa and greens, but I'll tell you all about it in just a second. First, picture yourself melting into a warm cushioned lounge chair in the most beautiful, spa-like backyard you've ever seen. The sun is soaking into your skin, but there's just the right amount of breeze [...]

Recap: Try Something New Tuesday 172

Hey there! How's your day going so far? I'm super excited for 5:30 to come tonight because I've got a date with one of my besties at David's Tea and they've recently launched their fall collection. If you're a tea-a-holic like me, I'm sure you're just as thrilled to see Pumpkin Chai back in the lineup! Although [...]

Coconut Lime Quinoa Salad

Originally posted May 2013, updated September 2017. No matter what the time of year, I'm always into a multi-coloured, massive salad full of textures and flavour. If you've been hanging around here for any length of time, I'm sure you've probably caught on to that by now! You know when you come back from a [...]
