St. Patrick’s Day Diet

It turned out to be a surprisingly busy week and because of that I literally didn’t bake or cook a thing. My tummy hurts and it’s only going to get worse after a few green beers this weekend (and the subsequent drunk eats that occur afterward). I am hoping to get some treats under my belt this afternoon and in the meantime, I’m hoping you get inspired by my favorite flavors of the season from some of my favorite online…

Greek Lemon Soup (Vegetarian + Chicken)

The weekend is here and I’m back in the city and colder than ever. Seriously, my knees are in pain because they’re not used to the cold! So instead of complaining about it, I am choosing to embrace it with a little love from the kitchen. I made this Greek Lemon Soup before I went to LA and it was a hit on my Stories. Why such a hit?! Well it was pretty delicious and looks gourmet but it also can…

So I’ve teamed up once again with Stella Artois and Water.org to show you how to throw a Super Bowl party that matters. How can you make your…

In an effort to share more detox-friendly recipes with you guys, I whipped up a one of my favorite snacks – hummus. And not just any hummus. EASY HUMMUS. Hummus that you would make and bring to a party and people will be all, “You made this yourself?” And you’ll be like, “What like it’s hard?” and life will be perfect, and…

Chickpea Smash

Ok guys, I apologize for the one photo, but I got a bunch of requests for this recipe when I posted it on Instagram that I just decided to share it ASAP. I love this recipe because it’s clean and healthy, and I can eat it while on my wild rose detox. It’s vegan, vegetarian and you can eat it as a meal in a bowl over a bed of rice or as a side with a protein like chicken breast…

The One with Phoebe’s Cookies

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! I whipped these chocolate chip cookies up over on my Instagram Stories but wanted to share the link here since so many of you DM’d me. Did you ever see the episode of Friends, “The One with Phoebe’s Cookies”? Basically Monica is trying to replicate Phoebe’s Grandmother’s famous cookies only to discover they’re actually just NESTLÉ® Toll House cookies. It is H I L A R I O U S and I highly recommend you watch it…

Canada’s 150th with Amazon

We are headed in to the Long Weekend and I for one can’t wait to kick things off! I was feeling a little festive so I decided to what better way to get in the spirit than some red & white donuts. Canadians loveeee their donuts – I am not 100% sure but I feel like it’s debatable that they were invented in Canada…so let’s just stick with that fact for the purpose of this post HA! Getting prepped was…

leftover lobster spaghetti

For Father’s Day it’s our family tradition to have a giant Sunday feast with all the fixings. Asparagus, salad, mashed potatoes and the main event, LOBSTER. We love seafood in my house. It’s like a serious obsession. I think it’s partially because it’s so delicious but also because it’s so fun to eat. Nothing beats working for your food and it makes for great dinner conversation (ahem, and competition). So we treat Father’s Day as a big event and when…

So I took full advantage and woke up Saturday feeling refreshed and inspired by my 10 PM TGIF bed time and decided…
