Recipe: Ratatouille- Clean, Easy, Healthy, Yummy!

Posted by: on Feb 16, 2016 | No Comments
Last week I shared a photo on social media of the Ratatouille I made, and I got a TON of requests for a recipe. Ha! If you know me, you know I tend to make these things up as I go along without paying much attention to measurements or silly things like that. Hmmm. I don't want to disappoint, however, so I have made my best attempt at estimating exactly what I used/did to create this absolutely scrumptious dish! I was looking for a new way to get in all my veggies (green containers for all of you Read more [...]

I don't know about where you live, but it's pretty dang chilly here already! Too chilly for October, if you ask me! I can't even think about how I'm going to convince my daughter to bundle up properly for Trick-or-Treating this Halloween weekend. Brrr... For those who don't know, I do love fall. I love the colours. I love the change in seasons. I love comfy sweaters and slippers. I also love the change in diet from light, cool meals to beat the summer heat to warm, thick soups to warm up on a Read more [...]

Making homemade food for my babies is something that is very important to me. I like knowing exactly what is being put into their little bodies as I introduce "solids". There will be plenty of time for quick, processed meals and junk food later in life. For the earliest meals, however, I like to feel like I have some control, and I've made making my own baby food a priority. Fortunately there are some really amazing resources out there to help in the process of preparing and coming up with new Read more [...]

For whatever reason, while I was growing up, Brussels sprouts always got a bad rap. On tv or in movies, there was always some kid lamenting being forced to eat his Brussels sprouts. Why one vegetable was so demonized, I will never understand. Especially because they've always been one of my absolute favourites! Until recently my husband wouldn't touch them. It wasn't that he knew he didn't like them, but he thought he didn't. I blame the bad press. When I made these balsamic roasted Brussels Read more [...]

Ahh November- the greyest month of the year. (At least it seems that way.) The days are shorter, colder and it's the start of cold and flu season. Blech. That's enough to get anyone down! In our house, the germies have been going 'round and 'round, and we're all taking turns coughing and sneezing. Sigh. Thank goodness for some awesome comedy titles on Netflix to keep us cuddled up in bed, resting and laughing off the sickies! After all, laughter is the best medicine. :) In case your household is Read more [...]
