With only 8 ingredients and minimal prep time, this bread is great for when you want homemade bread quick. The crust is crunchy and the centre is soft – just perfect for butter slathering!

This is my recipe for what I consider to be the best vegetarian chili out there. It’s made with both black and kidney beans, is perfectly spiced, and has bulgur added to the mix for a more classic “meaty chili” texture – this is such a wholesome dish.

I’m smashing in all-the-fun-stuff this week. Next week I start my new job where pancakes aren’t going to be a mid-week reality but for now, they TOTALLY are!

This British Columbia rain that I keep hearing about has begun. Looking out from my balcony right now, all I can see is the fog and not even a hint of any mountains behind it. I like it. It makes getting up and going in the mornings a bit slower, but that’s ok! And the showers always stop at least a little bit during the day for a puppy walk.
