Gingered Carrot Oatmeal Cookies

Here is my adaptation of Heidi Swanson’s Carrot Oatmeal Cookies. Whole wheat pastry flour, coconut oil instead of butter, oats, and carrots? Dare I say it, a “healthy” cookie (at least as far as cookies go). They were sweeter than I would have expected from a cookie that involved carrots. I added flaked coconut, candied ginger, and hazelnuts […]


Garlic-Pepper Grilled Chicken & Roasted Veggies

This is a pretty typical meal in our house, which I’ve modified to make Whole30 compatible. Although there’s some prep work, it’s just cutting veggies and marinating the chicken – the last steps are super easy and can be done quickly in the evening rush. I used to marinate my grilled chicken in store-bought caesar dressing, but […]

Beaver Tails: The All-Canadian Winter Treat

Have you ever heard of Beaver Tails? If you’re not Canadian, the chances of your familiarity with them drops by about 80%.

Yeah, I feel you: I’m not alone in having children who would rather go hungry than eat a plateful of vegetables. I’m aware that our plight is far from unique. Lorelei is at that troubling phase […]


Thirty-Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Family Day is a recently implemented holiday in Ontario, and I’m incredibly grateful for a long weekend smack in the middle of February. Both Mr. O and I have our families close by, and it is the perfect opportunity to get together. Since family gatherings (at least at our house) revolve around food, I was […]

Almond Crusted Tilapia

I started the Whole30 this February for the first time – I’m 1/3 of the way done, woo hoo! Although I’m pretty late to the bandwagon here on HB, this is all new for me. Mr. T joined me in solidarity but quit after day 6. Our meals were getting pretty repetitive (eggs for breakfast, salad […]


12 Things to Do With Leftover Chili

Making (and eating) chili is one of my favorite things about winter. Not only is it ridiculously easy to throw everything in the crockpot in the morning, but it makes a ton of food on the cheap, and it tastes so good! We recently made a batch of chili, and when I was about to […]
