My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hello all. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. You may remember last week I confessed my undying love for chocolate. Well, I managed an entire week without chocolate (or any other sugar, for that matter) - except one teeny tiny bar on Wednesday. And I didn't even miss it! Amazing what you can do … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Early Spring Seasonal Produce Guide

Spring in my neck of the woods means the return of the Farmer's Markets.  Home-grown vegetables taste oh so much better than store bought, especially at this time of the year when the store-bought produce looks and tastes like it's been in a cooler for 6 months. It's so much fun to visit our local … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Early Spring Seasonal Produce Guide

Hello Almost Vegetarian readers. I must confess that in the past few weeks I have fallen desperately off the sugar wagon. I have a long-standing love affair with chocolate, but that's not the problem. The problem is that, when I buy a bar of chocolate, I have to eat the entire bar! It doesn't matter … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi everyone. I just noticed that my last post was almost a month ago! I can't believe it's been that long. Things have been quite hectic here lately and I had a very stressful 2 or 3 weeks at work to the point where I almost made myself ill. I've been down this road before, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hello all. How are you doing? We're doing fine here. I missed the last couple of weeks as we went into Vancouver to see my 3 year old grandson who was visiting from Edmonton and got behind in household stuff and it's taken me until now to catch up! Well, we survived an entire week … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

HellOooo. I hope you've all had a wonderful week. It's been raining a lot here, but the temperatures have been 10 deg. C above what we normally get here. We've even had some double digits! I can live with that. I lost the 3 lbs that I put on over the the Christmas holidays - … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

It's back to work for me today after 10 lovely days. I must admit, I'm having a little trouble getting back into it. Typing, spelling and, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Cheesy Enchiladas, Rattatouille and More

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

HellOoo Vegetarian lovers (and some meat lovers too). I hope you've all had a good start to the week. Are you all ready for Christmas? I can finally say that I am. Christmas is a pretty low-key event in our house focused around food, drink and relaxing. This weekend I finished off my Christmas shopping … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Cheesy Enchiladas, Rattatouille and More

HellOooo vegetable lovers (and the occasional meat lover)! I must admit that this week's menu has more meat in it than I'd like, but my Jamie Oliver cookbook showed up on Friday - Jamie Cooks Italy and I just had to incorporate some of his meals into the menu. I just luuurve Jamie Oliver's food … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Winter Warmers – Hot Toddies and Other Classics

Hot Toddies

There's no better way to ward off winter chills than with a hot toddy. Hot toddies were my mother's go-to when we had a cold. But have you ever wondered where the term - and the drink came from? Some say the British brought it back from Colonial India, while Americans insist it was their … Continue reading Winter Warmers – Hot Toddies and Other Classics
