As May comes to a close, it’s really starting to settle in that I’m moving in a month. I am SO excited, more happy than not happy, to be sure, but June is beginning to look like it’s going to be, quite frankly, a shit show.

Egg Salad Sandwiches with Fresh Herbs

For example, on June 24th everything from my apartment is being moved to British Columbia. This does not include me.

I have had the craziest couple of days, and after a long weekend in Houston, Texas, I am back and ready for alllll the healthy breakfast options! Starting with overnight oats.

Blueberry Overnight Oats with Chia and Flax

This version for overnight oats is super simple and delicious. I based it off of my banana and chia recipe and changed it up a bit by removing the banana, adding ground flaxseeds, and topping it with almonds and blueberries.

Guys, this is SO GOOD! And really perfect for the warmer weather. I live in a tiny apartment and when it gets hot, I simply have to get over my hotness and deal. Smoothies and overnight oats are my everything right now.

May-Produce

Every month that brings us closer to summer means that we get more and more selections to choose from in the produce department. My local farmers market is really beginning to blossom with choices like asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, Spring greens, herbs, leeks, mushrooms, peas, mango, rhubarb, and soooo much more.

Like every month, below I’ve highlighted the in-season produce for May plus links to five recipes for each fruit or vegetable. Enjoy!

Three cheers for Cinco de Mayo!! It’s quickly approaching and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this fine holiday than with a fancy-pants margarita!

Strawberry Rhubarb Margaritas with Muddled Lime

Actually, a bunch of us food bloggers have decided to celebrate in a HUGE online party that we’re calling MARGARITA WEEK. This whole deliciously fun event is hosted by Kate at ¡Hola! Jalapeño and you can click HERE to see all of our favorite margaritas (with more recipes to come over the next couple days). So wonderfully exciting!

I’m back in Montreal after a looooong weekend away and it feels GREAT! Paul and I have a date night booked at our favourite wine bar for this evening and I can’t wait to sit back and sip some serious red.

Best Banana Muffins

After months and months of planning, the bachelorette weekend that I planned for my best friend is completed. We dressed her up in ’80’s gear, got our make up done, did yoga, ate too much cake, played a whole whack of games and danced our hips sore. It was such a fun weekend to plan!

It’s here! It’s here! You know that bachelorette weekend that I’ve been planning for months? Well, it starts tomorrow! And I can’t say a thing about it just in case the bride-to-be happens to read this. I’ll fill you in after the weekend, but what I CAN tell you is that I bought fluorescent pink tights and a tutu for it. Totally reusable, right?? 😉

Seedy Sourdough Bread

About three weeks ago I decided that it was absolutely imperative that I make my own sourdough bread. Besides challah, it’s my favourite, and now that I know I’m moving away from the city in a few months I absolutely needed to know that making good sourdough bread at home could be done.

These past few days have FLOWN by. Paul and I got back from British Columbia on Friday and we’ve been dreaming about what our lives will be like living out West ever since.

Coconut Almond Breakfast Quinoa

We had a great vacation! We looked around the Fraser Valley for where we’d like to live, did quite a bit of hiking, and drove around the area looking for microbreweries and picnic spots. We also stayed at the cutest little mountain cabin without any internet and really enjoyed some “time away”.
