Blueberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

***Since posting this recipe, it has come to my attention that blueberries contain solanine, which is one of the glykoalkaloids responsible for nightshade allergies. If you are on a nightshade free diet, please proceed with caution unless you are certain that blueberries are okay for you! You can find more information here.***   Mornings are hard. There’s no…Read More

Week 16

Happy Friday! I hope this week finds you well, and staying cool. I think the stupid heat wave we brought to NYC with us from Louisiana is finally nearing its end. I'm not a fan :( Here's your Lunch of the Week! Snack:  Celery with peanut butter for dippin'. Lunch: Salad! Easy Lemon Garlic Marinated…Read More

Cobb(ish) Salad

I have a confession to make. I. HATE. Leftovers. With the burning passion of one thousand flaming suns. Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration. Some things get better the day after, like beef stew, or chili, you know, something where the flavours get even more time to marinate and mingle. Everything else though? Not…Read More

Easy Lemon Garlic Chicken Marinade

Since arriving in New York I’ve had to think about food and groceries differently. Instead of just ‘what do I need?’ and ‘how much will it cost?’, a third variable enters the equation: ‘how much can I carry?’ It’s been easy to just drive my car to the store, load up the back with whatever…Read More

Week 15

  Aaaaand we're back! We're finally moved in and settled in fancy New York City and Mr. Nomato has resumed his school, so lunches are back! You'll also notice that there was a bonus weekly recipe yesterday, Tidepool Jello Cups. This is because I have way too many recipes waiting in the wings to share…Read More

Tidepool Jello Cups

Okay, so sometimes I go a little mad scientist in the kitchen. I get an idea in my head, and gosh darn it all, I'm going to try it and try it until it works. I was partly inspired by these adorable Gone Fishing Cupcakes on Three Kids and a Fish, and I really wanted to…Read More

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Best part about nomad life? The second strawberry season is here!!! BEST. YEAR. EVER. Our first strawberry season in Louisiana was wonderful, but can I say there ain’t no strawberries like home strawberries? (‘cause the strawberry party don’t stop.) Nova Scotia strawberry season is upon us. And I seriously can’t stop eating them. I may…Read More

How To Cook Spaghetti Squash in the Crockpot

Where would I be without my Crockpot? The crossroads between Sad-ville and Hungry-town, that's where! Mr. Nomato and I are trying to eat healthier, and part of that is cutting down the carbs, and the calories. Spaghetti squash is a fantastic alternative to regular spaghetti, with only a fraction of the carbs. Now, I know…Read More

Italian Wedding Soup

Okay, I’m officially in denial. I admit it. Summer is here, and here I am, making soup. I could make some sort of excuse, like drinking hot liquids makes it seem not so hot outside… or that I had leftovers in the fridge that I needed to get rid of… And while both of those excuses…Read More

Whole Wheat Pretzel Rolls

Let me be very clear: whole wheat is my nemesis. Now, I have nothing against whole wheat made by other people. In fact, I prefer it because it’s so much healthier. But when it comes to my own baking, it leaves me completely stumped because it’s so dense. I just cannot, CANNOT make it work,…Read More
