Friday Wine Down!

Happy Friday!

Another week gone! Well another two weeks since I last posted a Wine Down.

What a busy few weeks it has been. Long weekends, car crashes, TWO Game of Thrones episodes and some wonderful times spent with family and friends.

I'm staying close to home this weekend to get some personal projects done (hopefully) so I'll be glued to my computer until Monday... Not the best way to spend a weekend but it needs to be done.

So lets Wine Down this week and talk about happier times!

Wednesday Pinspiration: Barbecue Recipes!

I'm so excited. 

This weekend is the Victoria Long Weekend (or "May 2-4") in Canada. The first long weekend of the summer and the unofficial kick off to Cottage Season up north.

Well, as unofficial as a unanimous weekend choice can be.

Barbecue, Beers and hopefully no Bears; my whole family is driving up north to kick off the season together.

With the May long weekend only a few days away, and Memorial Weekend happening next week for our American friends, today I wan't to offer you a little "Pinspiration" in the form of awesome barbecue recipes!

Friday Wine Down

Happy Friday!!!!

Another week over, another week closer to hot summer weather and I just cannot WAIT!

My impatience is building, and my flower-budget to bring warm weather into my apartment is starting to get a little out of control...

Let's hope for a gorgeous weekend to relax!

Before we kick that off though, lets Wine Down this week.

5 Up And Coming Instagram Accounts To Follow!

My 2 year blogiversary is coming up!

This is totally insane to me. Blogging is a wonderful hobby of mine and I don't know where I want to take it, but for now I love putting out new content, trying new things, posting new recipes and updating my social media.

Mostly, I love connecting with fellow bloggers!

Wednesday Pinspiration: Badass Salads

With Spring well under way and Summer right around the corner, lately I've been finding myself craving low maintenance, fresh tasting meals.

I've been craving badass salads!

A badass salad is a salad that goes above and beyond social convention. It has veggies, fruits, nuts, meat, potatoes, grains, fresh dressings. A badass salad makes your wilted garden side salad look pathetic.

A badass salad is a full meal, not a side.

Friday Wine Down

Happy Friday!!!

It's hot and sunny out today, and I'm so excited because tonight Kris and I are planning to hit a local patio for dinner and drinks.

Eating! Outside! Sunshine!

Before we get to that though, lets Wine Down this week!

Salmon Sushi Plate

Coming home from vacation is always so bitter sweet.

I miss the sun, the lazy days, the wild nights and the joys of being unconnected from the internet... but I am so happy to snuggle down in my own bed, wash my clothes, see my family, friends and get back to work in my kitchen!

Grand Champion Veggie Burgers

Hey everyone!

I'm away this week (check the details!) but I wanted to leave you with at least one Kick Ass recipe to enjoy while I'm gone! I've asked my bestie Rebecca to write a guest post for me, to talk about our new FAVOURITE vegan burger recipe from oh she glows that we are just totally obsessed with. 


I am not a blogger, but I am a blogger-BFF, so when Laura asked me to write a guest post I was more than happy to oblige. Especially since it means sharing this particular recipe.

I am a fairly new vegetarian (well, really pescatarian) and my favourite part so far has been trying amazing recipes from vegetarian and vegan blogs and cookbooks that I never would have tried before. 

One of the best blogs that I go to all the time is Oh She Glows, and that site is the source of the best burgers of all time. Not the best veggie burgers, the hands down, grand champion best burgers ever.
