Super Simple Stuffed Peppers

When I first started talking about this website, Ashton insisted that I have a section called “Bro Meals” with super simple, quick recipes that any guy could make. He even enthusiastically said, “If you post recipes like that, even I could cook them!!” Not sure […]

Whole Wheat Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

Whole Wheat Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

Going out for brunch is the best. Breakfast restaurants always have fresh coffee brewing, delicious mimosas and everything from savory eggs benedict to sweet treats like waffles and pancakes. While I’m always tempted to get the banana bread french toast with a mound of whipped […]

Date Sweetened Ketchup

Date Sweetened Ketchup

I’m Canadian, so it’s pretty much a given in that I LOVE ketchup. When I moved down to Oregon from Saskatchewan, I had so many people say to me, “Wow! You put ketchup on everything!” While that’s a slight exaggeration, it is by far my […]

Citrus Juice with Carrots & Sweet Potatoes

Citrus Juice with Carrots & Sweet Potatoes

I’m not a big juice person. Even when I was younger and my mom would make that canned OJ from concentrate that everyone loved so much, I would always pass. I’d rather get my extra dose of sugar from more dessert than a glass of […]
