Eating Clean: Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

Meatloaf muffins: blueberry muffin’s distant cousin. Kind of. Sorta. Not really. I remember telling my roommates back in university that making meatloaf muffins was the best thing in the entire universe! A serving you can bring anywhere! Perfection. Who could ask for more?! They were thoroughly disgusted. Little did they know, I make the best…

The Way to a Man’s (or Bacon-Lover’s) Heart

The way is via Maple Bacon Cupcakes with Bacon Buttercream and Candied Bacon Garnish.   I had this urge to be adventurous and try these out — and let’s be serious here; I had a craving for bacon. This was probably the most complex and hardest recipe that I have ever attempted.  I made everything from…

Super Garlicky Potato Soup

Last week I had this insatiable craving for potato soup, but I didn’t exactly know where one bought potato soup. I knew my old faithful, Sky Blue Sky Sandwich Company would probably have it, but that’s all the way in the Annex…likely worth it, but by the time I found out that they did have potato…

Every year, I meet up with my old…

Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Banana Flax Muffins

Mmmmmm muffins. They come in so many different mouth-watering flavours: chocolate chip, blueberry, and those pumpkin spice ones from Starbucks with the cream cheese filling in the middle — drool. But, like every other scrumptious food out there, they are not friendly to the hips and thighs area (at least, that’s how it is for…

Triple-P Shake

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian followers! I’ll have you know that I gained two pounds from my Thanksgiving yesterday. But in my defense, I had two thanksgiving dinners…and I have another today! It’s not my fault that I love squash, potatoes, turkey and sweets! So in honour of my glorious weight gain, I have…

Pear & Brie Salad with Sweet Mustard Dressing

Today I’m going to share a recipe for the most delicious salad I have ever made! I’m the type of person who likes to experiment with new recipes (a.k.a. improvise). Sometimes it doesn’t work out too well (like the time I made salad dressing with extra hot olive oil — ouch), but most of the…
