The best salad dressing EVER!
I actually really love salads.  Only if they have LOTS of great stuff in them (cheese and fruit and avocados really do it for me!) and only if the dressing is REALLY good! If salads are not your thing, I promise you that this recipe for my homemade salad... Read more
Meal planning to help keep us on track (& two yummy recipes!)
I go through phases where I am so on-the-ball and organized for a couple of weeks and then I am literally scrambling to keep my head above water for the next little while.  My biggest struggle is dinner time.  Figuring out what I feel like making, while taking into... Read more
Date night: Dinner at Vij’s
My husband and I don’t get out very often, just the two of us.  With a 3 year old and a 9 month old… you know how it goes! 😉  When we do go out, we choose our restaurants carefully and really make a night of it! I’m participating... Read more

To be perfectly honest, I’ve been scrambling lately.  ‘Everything’ seems to be on the back burner except for warm healthy meals for my family.  I had a few weeks where I was out at events/dinners 2-3 nights every week and I feel like I’ve fallen behind on all things... Read more

Valentine’s Brownies with Buttercream Frosting & Heart Sprinkles
I am not a big baker.  I love to eat baked treats, but I prefer if someone else makes them for me :). I like to cook and try new recipes, but it feels like there is more ‘flexibility’ when it comes to cooking.  When I decide to bake... Read more
