Jul 30, 2017 - taste of nature chocolate pecan brownie granola

You know I’m not much of a chocolate fan but I was intrigued by these Taste of Nature granola bars because they’re organic and non-GMO. They also happened to be on sale so it was a good excuse to test them out.

Questions in my head as I picked up the box – would they be too sweet, would they taste good, would they be worth the money I spent (even on sale)?

Well, let’s just see, shall we?

Apr 30, 2017 - pacific-organic-pumpkin-puree-pumpkin-loaf

For the record, I love Pacific Food’s organic Pumpkin Puree. It is my absolute pumpkin puree. I discovered it at my local health food store. It was on sale and I decided to pick it up and try my hand at making my own pumpkin loaf. My entire family loves eating pumpkin loaf but I never dared to make it. I mean, pumpkin puree? I had no clue how to use it.

Armed with this box of Pacific Organic Pumpkin Puree, I tried it and made the best pumpkin loaf ever which I promise to share one day soon. For now, let me focus on this delectable pumpkin puree because quite frankly, it deserves the attention! – Continue Reading

Apr 25, 2017 - lancetre organic le port royal cheese

Once upon a time, I used to think all cheeses were alike. See cheese on sale, buy cheese on sale. Eat cheese, enjoy cheese, yummy yummy in my tummy.

As it turns out, eating and enjoying food isn’t quite that simple or that easy. Over time, I learned to read labels and pay attention to the ingredients that went into my body. Sure, I don’t always choose the healthiest options but I’m at least more mindful of what gets consumed.

Then, one day, I discovered L’Ancetre cheese and I’ve been hooked ever since. Recently, L’Ancetre has come out with even more options for us conscious consumers. Check out their Le Port-Royal cheese, an organic cheese made with 50% less salt and a hit of garlic and parsley!

Chicken broth, cool? No way.

Yes, way.


Well, if you’re Pacific Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth, you’ve got a few reasons to feel cool.

Why is that cool you ask? Well, let’s start with the ingredients, shall we? – Continue Reading

Feb 7, 2017 - lets-do-organic-organic-cornstarch

Allow me to introduce you to my first ever batch of chocolate pudding. It’s not something I’ve ever considered making until I saw the recipe on the back of the Let’s Do Organic Cornstarch box. As it so happened, I had all the needed ingredients in my home so I decided to try something new.

Not bad, right?

Here’s the original recipe off the box of Let’s Do Organic Cornstarch: – Continue Reading

Jan 9, 2017 - lets-do-organic-organic-cornstarch

I have moments when I’m convinced I must live under a rock.

For the longest time I’ve wanted organic cornstarch to cook with but I didn’t want any old organic cornstarch. I wanted organic cornstarch that was also non GMO.

Now, some people might say, ‘Really? Organic non GMO cornstarch? Do you not have anything better to do with your life than lament for organic non GMO cornstarch?’ and they’re right. I’ve got plenty of other things I could be doing with my life (including cleaning the home but you know, that’s a chore that never ends holiday season or not). At the same time, things get stuck in my head and I end up pondering about life’s little wonders like…organic non GMO cornstarch.

And then, I spot it at my local health food store. Let’s Do…Organic Cornstarch. There it sat unassuming as ever on the store shelf and I had to pick it up to take a better look.

Yep, there it was. – Continue Reading

Dec 9, 2016 - martelli-organic-cornmeal-polenta

I’m not the best baker and I’m certainly not the best cook on the planet but I do like to try new things (within reason). Recently, my adorable neighbour/pal called me over to get food. She’d made too much polenta and lovingly insisted that I take some home.

Well, how could I resist?

Best part: the polenta was delicious and she convinced me that it was easy to make. In theory, all I had to do was get some cornmeal, add it to boiling water, and by the magic of cooking, it’ll make polenta that I can cut into chunks, fry up and pair with whatever I so please.

Hey, it sounded easy (in theory) but the first task was to find the cornmeal.

Enter my local Italian grocery store. I browse the aisle and all the different brands of cornmeal that are available. My eyes land on the Martelli Organic Cornmeal Polenta.

Why? – Continue Reading

Sep 12, 2016 - l'ancetre organic applewood smoked cheddar

Confession: I do love cheese. Cheese doesn’t always love me but I do love cheese (well, most cheeses. I still haven’t figured out brie yet). L’Ancetre however, is one company that never ceases to amaze me.

I’ve had the pleasure of testing out quite a few of the L’Ancetre cheeses and they never disappoint. However, I have to say, the L’Ancetre organic applewood double smoked cheddar is one of my favourites. So much flavour, so much personality, and so much really good quality cheese.

Mar 26, 2016 - l'ancetre organic half salt cheddar cheese

Am I picky about my food? I don’t think so. Certainly, there are some foods that I just can’t eat. Spicy foods are a no-go for me and I prefer not to eat foods from a tin can but for the most part, I’d like to think I’m pretty easy going (granted, I’m not overly adventurous but still…).

I also happen to be a big cheese lover but I’ve come to realize that not all cheeses are equal. I mean, there’s cheese and then there are all the cheeses made by the amazing folks at L’Ancetre. In the past, I was fortunate enough to test out some of their cheeses and just recently, they reached out and I learned about their organic half salt cheddar cheese. With 85mg of sodium in 30g of cheese, this L’Ancetre Le St-Grégoire organic half salt cheddar cheese is significantly lower in sodium than a lot of the cheeses out on the marketplace. - l'ancetre organic half salt cheddar cheese

Well, what can I say? L’Ancetre never ceases to amaze me. – Continue Reading

Feb 23, 2016 - camino milk chocolate with sea salt

In my last post I talked about making chocolate bar cookies but I never did mention which chocolate bar I chose to use. I wanted to make sure I gave credit where credit was due. Allow me to introduce you to a delicious chocolate bar made by the folks at Camino: the Camino milk chocolate bar with sea salt.

One word: Yum. – Continue Reading
