This year’s Oscars was the first time in all the years I’ve been covering it (save for my preggo year) that I didn’t put myself on some kind of strict diet beforehand. My post-baby year I logged every single thing I ate into an app for months. Carbs were a hard no. I skipped out on dinners with girlfriends. And I was really unkind to myself if I “slipped.” None of these diets were enjoyable and none of this made me feel good. So this year, I said no more hard restrictions…Read More
While it’s still technically Spring, I know I’m not alone when I say this upcoming long weekend is the unofficial start of summer. Hot, sunny, glorious summer!
We’ll be spending this weekend at our cottage where we entertain a lot of friends and family. Some with kids, some without. Some like to water-ski, some like to read.

I’m a soup person. Like major soup person. From November to March it’s my most favourite thing to eat and make. Soup has endless possibilities and is such a great way to get in your veggies. Bea loves it too. I’m still trying to convince Randall it’s a “meal” but this one is always a winner with him.Read More
This dish reminds me of growing up and lunches spent with my Nonna. She was THE BEST and made the most delicious food. She looked after my brother and I before school, at lunch, and after school. When we’d see her in the mornings she’d ask us what we’d like for lunch. We named it, she made it.Read More
