Quinoa Salad

One of my go-to recipes to take for lunch for school/work is a quinoa salad! It’s very simple, easily customizable, and very nutritious. I typically make all my lunches for the week on Sundays (what some would call “meal-prepping”), and this is great to make in a batch! You can have it on its own…

3B’s – Banana Bundt Bread

The other day we had some brown bananas at home, and I decided to make a banana bread! I normally use Laura Vitale’s recipe for banana bread, but this time I changed it up. I know I always talk about her (she does have some killer recipes!), but this time around I decided to try…

Follow me Around – Paris🇫🇷

In February 2017, I visited one of the most recognizable cities around the world – Paris, France. This was my first time to Europe and my brother’s (who I went with) second, but neither of us had been to this city before. I will let the photos do the talking but in short, it is a…

“Cravings” Series Pt. 2 – Potato/Broccoli Cakes

For part 2 of the Cravings series (click here for part 1), I’ve decided to try Chrissy Teigen’s recipe for potato and broccoli cakes. I try to incorporate some vegetables into around 90% of my meals, but everyone knows that the best veggies are the ones you can’t taste. SO, keeping that in mind, I…

New Orleans – A Food Story🍛🍤🍴

If any place tells the story of food well, it’s New Orleans. I spent a week there in 2016 and ate some of the best food I ever have abroad. The cuisine in this city is highly influenced by creole, cajun and soul food – everything is super flavourful. You can’t leave this lively city…

Mayan Ruins – Tulum

Last month, I was in Mexico with a couple of friends, and we had the chance to visit some ancient Mayan Ruins. Having never been to Mexico or to any ruins before, this was very exciting to me. We were staying in the Riviera Maya meaning that we had some options as to which ruins…

Antojitos Appetizer

If you’ve ever been to Montana’s and had their Antojitos appetizer, this is a close second. For whatever reason, I was craving this last week and decided to look up a recipe for it. It turns out they are super simple to make! All you need is tortillas (I used whole wheat), cream cheese, cheddar…

Oscar’s 2018 – Best Dressed

Ahh that time of year again. The Oscars have always been a big event in my family, we’ve been watching them together for years. I personally have always loved the red carpet interviews and the fashion. Like I did for the Grammy’s, I’ve decided to round up a list of my favourite looks of the…

Healthy Creamy Broccoli Cheddar Soup

I know we all love a hearty, creamy bowl of broccoli cheddar soup. And yet, a lot of us also struggle to eat a little healthier, and to be honest, sometimes you just don’t want to stuff your body with heavy cream, butter and flour. The other night I was craving a nice, warm soup…

Anguilla Through My Eyes

While staying on the island of St. Martin, we decided to hop over to Anguilla for a day trip (30 min ferry ride), as we had heard that their most popular beach – Shoal Bay East – has been named one of the best in the world by multiple sources. Considering we were so close,…
