Muffins for my Muffin

Quickly whipped up these muffins thank to my girl, Amy. She discovered this insanely fast and healthy muffin recipe and adapted it by using gluten free oats, adding chia seeds and swapping chocolate for carob chips. Now I’m a bit under the weather this week, so I treated myself and kept the chocolate chips in there but I swear this took 10 minutes to blend together (you actually use a blender or food processor which makes it SO fast)! I would…

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…
