Blueberry Basil Moscow Mule

This slightly sweet, spicy and refreshing beverage will be in my cup all summer long. It’s the ginger beer for me, y’all. You know when you go to a bar, or your parent’s house, and it’s drink o’clock and you want something a bit different?! You want taste without the bloat of beer, flavour without…

Dark Chocolate Protein Nuggets

Oh hi! I didn’t see you there. I was too busy snackin’ healthy. I was in Costco the other day and I found these Keto Nuggets and decided to give them a shot. I’ve been looking for something that I can eat post-dinner that isn’t too terrible for you. I really just can’t get behind…

Vegan Mocha Buttercream

If someone were to ask me to choose between coffee and chocolate I just couldn’t do it. Those are my absolute two favourite things on the planet, so let’s put them together and plop it on a cake. Sound good? This recipe has the word “vegan” in front of it, but if you aren’t vegan…

I’m obsessed! Trends are trends for a reason, people. If you haven’t heard about these baked oats from your social media platforms, you are in for a treat!

Nasca, Huacachina & Paracas

Along the southern coast of Peru are three small towns – Nasca, Huacachina and Paracas. Each one of them unique from the other, they all have something special that draws tourists to them. Nasca I made a quick stop in Nasca on my way to Huacachina, and I’d say that’s all you need. The major…

Simple Beetroot Pasta

It’s pasta o’clock and I’m switching it up today with this tortiglioni in a creamy beet sauce. It’s pink, so you know it’s going to be good! I’m always diverting from traditional pasta sauces because life is too exciting to do boring things. The method this recipe follows is the tried-and-true method I use for…

Arequipa & the Colca Canyon

The White City – another stunningly unbelievable location in the south of Peru. Full of the most beautiful architecture and natural landscapes, Arequipa needs to be on your list of cities to visit while in Peru. Sitting at 2,335 metres above sea level, it’s the perfect place to take a (slight) break from the higher-altitude…

Easy Peanut Butter Coconut Cake

The other day, one of my students told me that he had a peanut butter cake for his birthday. I was all… “Whaaaa?! That exists?!” Life changing news. I immediately knew I needed to try to make my own version. Since Easter is around the corner, it seemed like the perfect cake to test out…

Puno on Lake Titicaca

I spent one single day in Puno, so I don’t have too much to offer, but what I do know is that hitting up Lake Titicaca is something that you should definitely do. We explored the floating islands here, and let me tell you, I have never witnessed such an interesting way of life! The…

Sumac Roasted Cauliflower

Give it up for cauliflower, the most versatile vegetable! Hey-yo! There’s no easier recipe, I promise you that. This whole-roasted cauliflower head is simple to prepare but complex on the palate! It’s vibe is very Middle Eastern – sumac, currants, pomegranates, pistachios. It’s visually stunning and a perfect side to go along with the rest…
