Redefining #LikeAGirl – Giveaway

Always #LikeAGirl giveaway - 4

Whether you like football or not, it’s totally acceptable to attend or host Super Bowl parties solely for the food, commercials and half-time show in my opinion. As you are chowing down on chicken wings this Sunday, this is one of the ads you and about 10 million others in Canada alone will see: Like […]

Downy Makes Me Wanna #RipYourClothesOn Giveaway


I have a confession. I converted my husband. When we started co-habitating, laundry was an issue. He was a scent-free dude and I was a double-up dryer sheet kind of girl. It may have taken 10 years, but now it’s HIM that makes sure that we always have a back-up supply of Downy Unstopables in the […]

Curry Sauce vs Curry Paste – Patak’s Great Debate

Butter Chicken Paste vs Sauce Pataks

When you are picking up ingredients at the market for a delicious Butter Chicken, this is what you’ll be faced with… but what’s the difference between curry paste and sauce? Growing up, the only curry I knew came in the form of the bottle of khaki coloured powder in the cupboard. While it still serves […]

Mini Carrot Muffins – Organized Lunches with Rubbermaid LunchBlox

Another goal I’ve set for our family this year is to spend less (with the expectation that those savings will be spent on travel). One of the simplest ways to save some cash is to pack a lunch. Both Chels and Hubs take their lunches with them, but neither of them brown bag it. Rubbermaid […]

Sandals Foundation – Their Promise

#BeachesMoms Sandals Foundation

Many large multinational companies and foundations are run by faceless entities. Sandals Foundation, the whole Sandals/Beaches brand in fact, are the very opposite. The Stewarts are a family who understand and more importantly value the importance of family and extend their ‘family’ to those who live in the communities their resorts are located. Born and […]

Toonies for Tummies – The Greater Impact of Breakfast

Way back when I was in junior high, ‘mall bangs’ and all, there was one girl I knew who would walk to school with her breakfast. She’d walk with it because she had picked it up on the way to school from the local fast food joint. No biggie, right? These days many of us […]

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup - Landscape

Soups on! Still. Like, all the time lately. There is nothing I love more than a hot bowl of soup on a cold winter’s day. Add some freshly baked bread and it’s pretty near perfect. Chicken soup is supposedly good for the soul, colds and who knows what else. This Greek-inspired soup also incorporates another […]

Steam Frying – The Lighter Way to Stir-Fry

Steam Frying

If you are trying to either eat healthier, lose weight or both, every choice matters. For example, I know that most of the time I would rather have my healthy fats in the form of delicious avocado on my lunch panini than hidden in my dinner’s stir-fry. A combination of frying and steaming, the Chinese […]
