Tofu Scramble

I’m a firm believer that those who claim that they don’t like tofu, just haven’t found the right recipe. One of my favourite breakfasts on Sunday mornings is this tofu scramble. It tastes just like scrambled eggs, and is super easy and quick to make, which makes it perfect to serve for brunch to a…

Classic Mulled Wine Recipe

What better way to end a cold winter day than a warm boozy beverage with your best friends? Of course, you can’t go wrong with Bailey’s and hot chocolate on a cozy girls night in, but mulled wine just sounds that much more sophisicated; especially for a couple of 21 year olds living in a student…

5 Journal Prompts to Start the Year

I love journalling. For me, it is a self-care practice. I cannot put into words the importance of journaling in my life; it honestly saved me. Whether you simply need to brain-dump or are exploring a deep topic, you will never regret documenting your innermost thoughts. Rereading your words, you might see it as an…

Soft Gingersnap Cookies

Gingersnaps have never been my family’s favourite, but, this year, they were on my winter baking bucket list. They’re a classic cookie and I can’t believe I’ve never made them before! The holidays bring so much joy and gratitude into my life, but the following days are difficult. Cleaning the house and taking down decorations,…

Christmas Morning Playlist

The title says “Christmas Morning Playlist”, but we all know that is code for “All Day Every Day From November 12th to December 25th Playlist” to my Canadian readers. The latter is a bit of a mouthful, though… Regardless, with five days until Christmas, I thought it appropriate to share my playlist. Run Rudolph Run…

Vegan Pumpkin Lasagna

Technically, it’s still fall, which means it is acceptable to incorporate pumpkin into every meal. This vegan pumpkin lasagna is super easy and a nice variation from the typical lasagna dish. I can’t take credit for the recipe though; that goes to Liv B. Her YouTube channel is my go-to for meal inspiration. Serve this…

Easy DIY Holiday Decor

Decorating my house according to the season is probably what I look forward to most when thinking of owning my first home. I can just picture myself replacing garlands of leaves with garlands of pine in a flannel pyjama set with peppermint hot chocolate warming on the stove… Until that day, I have a little…

F-All Time Favourites

It’s been a hot second since I’ve posted a monthly favourites. School got crazy and I got stressed. So, it goes; I had little new favourites to share, so I thought I’d wait until the end of the season and compile them all into one post. Since December is rolling in and, though it’s technically…

With finals approaching, it is hard to ignore the tense and anxious energy engulfing the entire campus.

One Ingredient Sweet Potato Topper

I LOVE sweet potatoes. No doubt, they are the perfect side dish. Potatoes in general can be made in so many different ways that it is scientifically (I use that term loosely) impossible to tire of them. In the autumn and winter months, sweet potatoes sometimes become a go-to snack. A baked sweet potato topped…

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte (Vegan)

I’m surprised that all the Canadian vegans have not petitioned for Starbucks to make it’s pumpkin spice latte vegan-friendly yet. Seriously, c’mon Starbs… Even though prime PSL season is over, I still like to treat myself to a homemade pumpkin spice latte on lazy mornings. Heck, I will probably be treating myself to these year…

I love writing notes out by hand. It helps me retain the information and, by personalizing the pages, makes it more interesting to study. Here are some general tips to writing out fun, but effective notes. SUPPLIES: black pen highlighter coloured pen marker (a FTP looks a lot nicer, but you certainly pay for it)…
