Corn Flakes Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Wednesday, September 30, 2015

As if I need another chocolate chip cookie recipe?! You might be wondering WHY I decided to put Corn Flakes in them. And in typical Julia fashion, it's because I had an abundance of Corn Flakes left over from making my Wife Saver Breakfast Casserole recently. ...

Marinated Greek Salad

By Friday, September 25, 2015

Big, chunky GREEK SALAD! We don’t eat enough Greek salad. Every time I plan to make it, I use up all my feta in this salad. Which should come as no surprise since it’s my favourite salad of all time. But anyway. I finally splurged on some ...

Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

By Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Zucchini season!!! Have I missed it? I think it's still in full swing. I keep seeing zucchini recipes everywhere, so hopefully I'm not late to the party. I always remember that zucchini season comes right before squash and pumpkin season... and we're dangerously close to that, ...

Bacon & Asparagus Pasta

By Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Remember back when I blogged about my hoarding problem? Well, almost three years later... I have news. I'm not a hoarder anymore! I'm the opposite - a minimalist! It all started when I read Marie Kondo's book. I went through my clothes and chucked tons of stuff. Then ...

Grapefruit Spinach Smoothie

Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

By Thursday, August 27, 2015

My morning routine changes constantly. Well, constantly is probably an exaggeration... but it changes every couple months for sure. I get into a habit, and then something comes and interrupts that habit, and then I'm back at square one. I keep trying to get things done in ...

Fudgey Marshmallow Brownies

By Friday, August 21, 2015

Brownies! I know I go on and on about how I'm not a chocolate fan but lately I've been craving brownies. They're one of the few chocolate desserts I'll eat, and I especially love them warm with ice cream. For a while I'd been looking for an ...

Tasty Little Bastards (Pub Italia Copycat Recipe)

By Wednesday, August 19, 2015

I'm a creature of habit. My Other Half and I love eating out (obviously), but we try (emphasis on TRY) to reserve expensive suppers out for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, work accomplishments and other milestones. More often than not, we'll treat ourselves to a weekend ...

My Go-To Classic Cinnamon Buns

Loaded Supper Nachos

By Wednesday, August 12, 2015

Now THIS is my kind of supper. I like suppers I can get excited about. I cannot stand boring suppers. If someone is like... we're BBQing chicken and having a salad for supper, I'm practically asleep. I wanna be pumped about my suppers! Plain old chicken ...

Salted Marshmallow & Peanut Squares

By Wednesday, July 29, 2015

These are decadent. Almost as decadent as these squares... but instead of caramel, it's marshmallow. I looove marshmallow. And I love peanuts. And salt. So these squares have been in the works for a lifetime. I don't know what's up with me, but it's like I have ...

Vegan Dark Chocolate Macaroons

Crunchy Thai Chicken Salad

By Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Mama’s Broccoli Salad

By Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Remember my bridal showers? Specifically, the one in my hometown of Halifax? I was so grateful and overwhelmed to receive so many wonderful, thoughtful shower gifts, but my mother's really stood out. She is one of the most thoughtful people I've ever met. Her gifts and ...
