Wellness Weekend May 31-June 4, 2012

Welcome to this week’s Wellness Weekend! So glad you decided to stop by. 🙂

We just got over a mini heatwave here in Toronto–which is just fine by me! To paraphrase Cher (or was it Mae West?): I’ve seen winter, and I’ve seen summer. Summer is better. 😀

Seems like many of […]


Chocolate Chip Cheesecake-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes

So here’s a scenario from my an imaginary 20-something woman’s life:

Let’s say this woman just got a job teaching as a sessional instructor at a large college in a large North American city. She’s very keen to do well on the job and practice all she’s learned about pedagogy.

Her […]


[Flash in the Pan] Summer Refresher: Watermelon-Basil Cooler

[Sometimes, you just want a dish that’s quick and easy–no fuss. I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so simple to make that no recipe is required. Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at […]


Wellness Weekend May 24-28

Hello and Happy Wellness Weekend! And Happy Memorial Day Weekend to all my American readers and friends!

I’m happy to report that last week’s Wellness Weekend hit an all-time high number of 50 submissions! Thank you all, so much, for continuing to play along each week and for regularly linking up your fabulous […]


Chai Ice Cream (No Ice Cream Maker Required!)

[Smooth, creamy. . . and oh so easy!]

I’m so glad it’s ice cream season again, aren’t you? Not because it coincides with climbing temperatures (though the 25C (78F) and sunny days are certainly welcome). Not because it means the HH and I can bring The Girls down to […]


Wellness Weekend, May 17-21

Hello and Happy Wellness Weekend!

Honestly, I don’t know where the times goes these days. It truly seems to fly between Thursdays (and being out of commission with a nasty cold for 4 days didn’t help)–I’m still breathless over all the fantastic recipes y’all shared last week! I had meant to post […]


Dog Day: Mum, This is Your Day

“Chaser, today is the day we tell Mum what she means to us.”

“But Elsie, Mum is never mean to us!”

“Really, Chaser, you are too, too outré. I said WHAT she means to us, not THAT she is mean to […]


Grilled Romaine with Sweet and Smoky Dressing–and Sayonara, Dole Summit

Along with my final recap of the Dole Summit festivities, I decided to share this Grilled Romaine with Sweet and Smoky Dressing recipe today because, well, I’ve been pouting about it for days now (which can really make your lips tired after the first 7 or so hours).

Okay, so I […]


Wellness Weekend May 10-14

Happy Thursday, all! And Happy Wellness Weekend. 🙂

After a jam-packed week last week with 3 days in California (I want to move there), I came home. . . and promptly caught a cold! So tonight WW will be the condensed version. We won’t forget any of your fabulous contributions from last […]


Chocolate Hazelnut Breakfast Smoothie

I know I promised a final installment to the Dole Summit recaps (and I’ll be posting that one next), but I just had to share this amazing smoothie that I guzzled created this morning!

After spending the past three days with a miserable cold (damn you, recirculated airline air), I woke […]
