My Ritual

As you all know, I have an increasingly busy schedule and if you follow me on Snapchat (@lexniko) you know that I am constantly going from A to B to C! While I lurvvve to cook, lately I’ve had very little time to dedicate to meal prep, food runs and my beloved coffee! I simply hate food going to waste, and with my lifestyle, let’s be honest, groceries have become a bit of a struggle. I’m lucky to be spoiled with meals at…

#FerreroMoment

I have died and gone to dessert heaven! Ever since I was little, I have been addicted to Ferrero Rocher and I was so honored when they sent me a bunch of delicious chocolates to share my holiday #FerreroMoment. I knew with the holiday parties coming I would have to make something beautiful but also richly decadent (because when else is a better time to splurge on dessert?!) so I quickly found this recipe and whipped it right up. I love…

Homemade Rice Bowls

Had a few people asking about my brown rice bowl recipe I posted on Instagram last night. I just boil brown rice with a mix of water & consommé. I then take shrimp, de-shell it and marinate it in a mixture of 2 chopped garlic cloves, a handful of chopped parsley, salt, pepper and the juice of half a lemon (for about 10-15 shrimp — this sounds like a lot but the flavor gets sautéed with the veggies once cooking).…

Apéro with Lillet Blanc

How was everyone’s weekend?! Mine was super busy but productive and after a few months of being insanely on-the-go, I finally got some work done around the new(ish) condo. I felt extremely proud of all my weekend accomplishments that I decided to host a couple friends over yesterday for a little apéro to break in my little patio nook! A popular custom in the south of France, an apéro is more than a drink; it’s a healing ritual like kicking off…

Simple Chicken Soup

I discovered this Simple Chicken Soup recipe c/o The Everygirl, which is an excellent little lifestyle read that I’d recommend for any 20-something looking to add a little sparkle to their life! You’ve heard me yammer on about how cold it’s been here in the city and any excuse to whip up and fast & easy soup recipe is fine by me. While this favourite is my usual go-to, I put today’s recipe together in under 30 minutes on Sunday,…

Mealspirations x I’m A Little

As someone with a schedule such as mine, sometimes the first thing to go is my need for healthy eats. When you’re constantly on the go it’s super simple to throw a proper diet to the wind in favour of treats, sips and late night delights. So when I got a ring from Mealspirations, offering me a chance to test out their weekly meal delivery service, I eagerly said yes please! It was all so simple: I arrived home from the…

Holiday Challah

Happy Happy Monday! I am so sorry for the lack of posts last week. I was having a serious programming glitch but hope it’s all straightened out now. The blog has been so fashion-centric lately that it was truthfully a bit liberating to not be able to post over the weekend. With all the craziness of the last few months, it was amazing to get back in the kitchen and I took the opportunity to attempt a new recipe from…

Weekend Unwind

I feel as though the days, weeks, months have been flying by! Between blog life, work life, family & birthdays, I have barely had a chance to sit. Now, I’m not complaining but I do have to express the complete and utter happiness experienced this past weekend when on Saturday night, after a long day of shooting an up-and-coming secret project with Covergirl, I made no plans and came home to cook a delicious dinner for one, had a glass…

Sliced Gourmet

If you live in the city of Toronto, you absolutely have to pop in to Sliced Gourmet. I was fortunate enough to enjoy an incredible lunch here a couple weeks back and I seriously fell in love. Sliced Gourmet is the one stop shop full of homemade, organic and local treats for every dietary need. I sampled a selection of sandwiches, salads and bites. From a nutritious quinoa & kale salad (in the cutest little mason jar) to a light and…

Stlto Wine x Brix Chocolate

As I get a little break these next few days (before the madness that is World MasterCard Fashion Week), there’s nothing more I plan to do than relax at home with a good book, my little pup and some yummy treats. With perfect timing, I happily received a sweet surprise from my friends at Stlto Wine and Brix Chocolate to kick off what I hope to be a long, slow week. This delicious duo teamed up to spread the word about one…
