Captain’s log, post-date three. As if it was humanly possible, I woke this morning to a lower, more protruding belly. We are attracting sympathetic looks from passers-by. My husband took one look at me this morning and started wondering if we are going to have a baby basketball. I took one look at me this morning […]

OK, OK, so there is no such thing as a healthy cookie. But what about mental health? mine sure improves eating one of these cookies. Especially when I cannot seem to hold one in my hand around my baby boy without him stretching out his little arm towards me, demanding his share. “Do you want some of […]

This is one simple Banana bread to make. It always comes out right. It does not have gazillion pounds of butter in it and it contained 50% whole wheat flour. The crust has almost a crunch to it and it keeps on the kitchen counter on in the fridge for a few days, without getting […]

This jam practically sustained my mother in law through a whole weekend of wrangling babysitting my two little scoundrels treasures, while the hubby and I took off to ogle watch Bon Jovi in Winnipeg. All. By. Ourselves. In the scope of  a mere 72 hours we came dangerously close to missing our plane(s) (and thus loose everything) due to […]

Do you like orange marmalade? the bitter-sweet tangy kind with real pieces of orange peel in it? So do I.  Sooo good on a fresh slice of bread, even better if you sneak in some butter. How about sugar? lots of industrial, processed, white sugar? do you like that? oh, and some Fructose (another name for […]

  I am not vegan. But that does not mean that I cannot appreciate a good pancake when I sink my teeth into one. This recipe was inspired by my good friend T. She is vegan. She also happens to be tall, blond, slim and witty. Who knows, maybe eating more vegan would shake some […]

How often have you tried preparing a muffin recipe boasting 12 or 24 muffins and ended up with several disappointed empty cups? I do that all the time. Even when I (shamefully) tried these ready-made-just-add-water muffin mixes, I still had to leave some of the cups muffin-less. Now that my conscience is clear, I can proceed to […]
