My Fertility Journey

A tad different from my other posts, I wanted to share my personal struggle with infertility. I’m currently 22 weeks and am now confident in my pregnancy to share what it took for us to get here.

I hope to share more about my pregnancy, postpartum, and motherhood on the blog. Continue reading

Miso Pesto Pasta Salad

Pasta salads have their time and place. They flourish when the sun is shining, bathing suits are damp, and friends and family are gathered. Basically, pasta salad is a summer food. Searching for the perfect recipe for your summer gathering? You’ve come to the right place.

Mushroom and Avocado Fresh Rolls with Peanut Sauce

Fresh rolls, also called salad, or summer rolls, are one of my favourite things to eat. They are basically a salad rolled up in a delicious rice wrap.

Vietnamese fresh rolls are delicious but the possibilities of what you can put in a rice wrap are endless. My recipe for Mushroom and Avocado Fresh Rolls with Peanut Sauce are refreshingly delicious and require none of that annoying julienning like you get with other fresh roll recipes.  Continue reading
