6 Summer Recipes You Need To Try from Female Foodies

Labour Day has come and gone, but I’m refusing to let go of summer just yet! We still technically have another two weeks before fall begins. So what better way to let the season live on than in the kitchen with some summer recipes? As you know, I’ve been doing a home food series with a unique recipe each week on the blog. As part of my food series, I want to draw attention to other talented female creatives. As if trying to curate the perfect Instagram feed isn’t hard enough, try creating recipes, cooking the dishes, styling and photographing…

Challah French Toast with Grilled Nectarines and Plums

Today’s the Friday before Labour Day weekend and therefore the perfect time to post this new recipe to the blog! This week’s recipe is for a super indulgent breakfast dish that the whole family can enjoy. My Challah French toast with grilled nectarines and plums is a real treat. And since it’s a long weekend, you’ll technically have one more day to burn off all the calories from eating it, haha! Or just treat yourself without guilt – trust me, you’ll loaf this one! The inspiration for this recipe actually came from leftovers in my fridge! If you follow me…

Lextle Ties The Knot Part One: Favourite Wedding Day Moments

Hi Friends! I know it’s been almost 2 months since we said “I do” and I still haven’t shared a single blog post on our wedding day with you. My apologies, but we wanted to take a looong break from anything wedding related after we got married. The months leading up to the big day were some of the busiest and craziest of my entire life; and needless to say, we were suffering from (over-)exhaustion afterwards. I was also trying to think of the best way to share our wedding story and moments with you, and have been going back…

Pork Carnitas with Mexican Street Corn and Homemade Crema

This past weekend, we celebrated my husband’s birthday with a bunch of friends at his family’s cottage in Parry Sound, Ontario. We usually go once or twice every summer, and we started making it a tradition to prepare some pretty killer meals while there, rather than just throw hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill! A couple years ago, I made a barbecue pulled pork in the oven. I remember waking up (hungover) on Sunday morning at 7 a.m. to make sure I got the pork in the oven, so it could bake low and slow for hours and hours….

Coconut Blueberry Popsicles

You would not believe how incredibly easy it is to make your own popsicles at home. In fact, the most difficult part about making popsicles at home is having enough patience to allow them to freeze for long enough! That was certainly the most difficulty I had in making these coconut blueberry popsicles. Ever since my husband and I served ice cream sandwiches and popsicles as a late night snack at our wedding, I’ve been obsessed with popsicles. I feel like I’m cheating on my first love (ice cream). After being inspired by the Happy Pops popsicles at our wedding…

Getting the VIP Treatment at the 2017 Rogers Cup

Last Wednesday, I was given the VIP treatment at the Rogers Cup, courtesy of National Bank, the presenting sponsor. I had the absolute pleasure of being able to host my very own VIP party for myself and 8 of my closest friends on the rooftop of the National Bank Booth! I love going to the Rogers Cup – it’s always so exciting and entertaining! Every year, I attend as a regular spectator. But this year’s experience was obviously extra special. The Rogers Cup was held this year between August 7th and 13th at the Aviva Centre at York University, which…

Brussels Sprout and Pancetta Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese is the ultimate comfort food – can we all agree?! So, you might be wondering why I’ve decided to post a comfort food recipe in the middle of the summer. Well, if you live in Toronto, then you’ll know how rainy this summer has been. I can’t think of a single week that we’ve had consistently good weather. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I actually need more comfort on rainy summer days than during the winter, when we all expect to have bad weather! So, I reserve a bowl of mac and cheese…

Coconut and Chia Seed Smoothie Bowl

I must admit, I was a little intimidated by smoothie bowls at first. I had no idea what the heck they were when I started seeing them pop up all over the place. I used to think they were just a ‘trend’, and that you could only get them from healthy restaurants, like Kupfert & Kim or Impact Kitchen. In terms of making them at home, I thought that was only for health nuts and nutritionists because I didn’t think the average person would have a stash of chia seeds and all the superfoods necessary to execute one of these…

Guide to Ontario Lavender Fields

A bouquet of dried Lavender, could there be anything more fragrant and pretty? Yes, actually. How about ENTIRE FIELDS full of Lavender?! Rows and rows of the gorgeous purple plant in full bloom – it’s probably one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen, and a total Instagrammer’s paradise! It’s been on my bucket list for a while to visit the bountiful Lavender fields in Provence or England. But I never realized that we have so many Lavender fields right here in Ontario! I discovered that there are actually more than 20 Lavender fields within driving distance of Toronto!…
