Joining the Anti Anti-Sweat Movement

Joining the Anti Anti-Sweat Movement

I have a confession to make.  I’m sweating again… and I kinda like it. I know that I have just made my girlfriends cringe.  Shudder.  Consider an intervention.  JUST LET ME EXPLAIN! Although the National Cancer Institute denies conclusive evidence about aluminum contributing to cancer, deodorants and antiperspirants contain other nasty ingredients like parabens and fragrance.   … Continue reading

Adult Problems and My Natural Medicine Cabinet

Adult Problems and My Natural Medicine Cabinet

When Morgan and I were young, we marveled at adults.  They always had their stuff together and knew everything.  Well, imagine our surprise when we become adults ourselves and realized it was all just a hoax.  Adults don’t have their stuff together… we’re just really good at pretending we do! Realistically, though, our lives are fairly … Continue reading

Good Grief!  Homemade Peanut Butter

Good Grief! Homemade Peanut Butter

So if you’re like me, you don’t understand the title.  Shoutout to my husband for this gem… apparently Charlie Brown would often say “good grief”, and he was in the cartoon “Peanuts”.  I think I’ll be asking him to name all of my future posts… We are nutty about our peanut butter (ha!), but not … Continue reading

I Am a Yogurt Wizard

Cam and I eat a lot of yogurt.  A lot.  We started buying plain greek for the protein, so things started getting a little pricey.  So what’s a budget-conscious girl to do?  Why, consult her good friend Google, of course! I researched yogurt makers, but they looked a little finicky for my tastes, plus the … Continue reading

Its Baaack!

Well, hello again! It has been a long time, has it not? Many things have happened since our last post on May 3, 2012.  I got married and my dear partner-in-crime moved out to the beautiful city of Calgary. It has been a fast and furious time for both of us… but now we’re back! … Continue reading

Cozying Up on a (Briefly) Rainy Day

Man, I love cappuccinos.  The smooth texture, the fluffy foam, the hint of coffee.  What I don’t love are the unpronounceable ingredients listed on my beloved Tim’s French Vanilla Capp canister.  Sigh. Homemade cappuccinos are surprisingly easy to make.  There is a lot of flexibility with flavours, toppings, and level of sweetness, so adjust the … Continue reading

Beauty in the Kitchen

Beauty has been a passion of mine for many years, but I have recently turned my attention to streamlining my routine and choosing more natural products… or as natural as my super-sensitive skin will allow.  I must carefully balance this new-found, potentially disastrous search for a new skincare routine with a wee bit of consideration … Continue reading

Tasty / Crispy Pita Bread Dippers

As you may have guessed from the rambling title, I had trouble coming up with a name to adequately describe what these little numbers are. Tasty / Crispy Pita Bread Dippers are quite simply pita bread cut into triangles, glazed with an olive oil/oregano/salt/pepper concoction, and baked in the oven on broil until golden brown. … Continue reading
