Montreal Eats: Aux Vivres

One of the pioneers of vegan restaurants in Montreal is Aux Vivres, circa 1997. This eatery serves up some of the best plant-based brunch, lunch and supper in town, and does so in a cute 50’s diner-style decor. The red-leather booths and metallic accents remind me of a classier Nickel’s. On the menu, you will…

Montreal Eats: Sushi Momo

Best YouTube Yoga Channels

Hiya peeps! Thought today I would share with you my favourite YouTube yoga channels, as these days I find myself doing yoga at home (like a next-level homebody โ€“I call it hibernation yoga ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) instead of heading to a yoga studio. I must say, I’m impressed with a lot of the great teachers I’ve…

Ginger Cinnamon Cupcakes

Ginger isย my jam, for so many reasons. More than anything though, its flavour is beautifully unique and aromatic and lends itself to so many types of cuisine and baking. Today’s recipe is for puffy, filling and festive cupcakes.ย ‘Tisย a sophisticated twist on traditional cupcakes with bursts of assertive crystallized ginger speckled throughout these beauts. These tasty…

Copenhagen Foodie Life

One of my hubby and I’s favourite places in the world is Copenhagen! This is why we decided to go back for a 2nd time in 2015 (#addicted? #yes!). Copenhagen is exactly what we look for in a city – which is probably why we half-jokingly talk about moving there every other day. Its citizens…

Maple Spiced Nuts

My mother in law makes the best candied nuts, and therefore she inspired me to try to make my own. My experimental nut candying has yielded nuts that are holiday-ish (but also year-round-ish, let me tell you). I very well could have used solely maple syrup, nuts and sea salt,ย but if you want to get…

Minty Nanaimo-Ish Bars
