easy huevos rancheros

Easy Huevos Rancheros

Brunch is my absolute favourite meal of the day, and my favourite meal to dine out for. There is something about the morning and endless cups of coffee that always keeps me coming back for more. I am totally a sweet over savoury person when it comes to breakfast, so eggs always seem to be on the menu for me, especially when they are Mexican. Add salsa and avocado to basically anything and you can count me in. A classic Mexican breakfast, huevos rancheros are fried eggs served on corn t […]

Peaches & Cream Smoothie

Peaches & Cream Smoothie

Peaches are my favourite summer fruit. Fresh, plump, juicy and sweet, they are perfect summer ingredient for a sweet or savoury recipe.

Gluten-Free Morning Glory Muffins

Gluten-Free Morning Glory Muffins

Legend has it, the Original Morning Glory Muffin &nbsp […]

Green Breakfast Bowl

Last February John and I went to Australia for a glorious 2 week vacation. I was really excited about going for a little sun, fun, activity and relaxation, but after visiting I can say that the trip blew my expectation out of the water. (No pun intended, it is an island after all.) I figured it would have a healthy vibe; you know fit surfers walking around drinking Foster’s and BBQ’ing,  but still somehow managing to have a 6-pack!?! Well, it turns out that is only partially true. People we […]
