Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Do you have any special plans? While dinner, chocolate and flowers are great (I DO love some beautiful flowers!), I think Valentine’s Day should be more about your connection with your loved one than the material things. My ultimate V-day is spending quality time with my love, cooking dinner and appreciating each other. I’d swap a pre-arranged fixed menu any day for a home cooked meal, made together over a good movie or bottle of wine. Although you should celebrate love every day of the year, let’s be real – life is busy. We don’t always have time to dedicate towards our relationships and I like that there is a special day of the year dedicated to just that! A nice little pause in our day-to-day to spend with our loved ones. 

Ok, so on to the good stuff…. the food!! This year, I’m really excited about our menu! For dinner, we will be making this Chick’n Fettucine Alfredo with Artichoke Hearts, and for dessert, we will be making these Chocolate Cookie Cakes and my favourite Vegan Vanilla Cake with Raspberry Jam and Buttercream Frosting (recipe below).

Memorial Day, Vegan, Gluten Free, Child-friendly

This Monday is Memorial Day, a day to remember those who served to protect the United States of America. Now, while I may be Canadian, I do spend quite a bit of time in the US, and have many friends and family there – so this holiday has quite a bit of significance for me as well. I know I’ll never truly understand its significance being Canadian, but I still love to honour our southern neighbours and those that fought for such a great country. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the families who have lost loved ones.

Baileys Peppermint Hot Chocolate

What better way is there than to start Christmas morning than with some Bailey’s Peppermint Hot Chocolate? Lets be real, when Baileys came out with their dairy-free almond milk version, our entire lives changed. And if you haven’t heard of or tried this version yet, you seriously need to (if you’re legal drinking age, of course). Your life will change too.  Waking up Christmas morning and sipping on some warm Baileys Hot Chocolate while you open presents with your loved ones is the most perfect way to share the moment together.
