How do you celebrate Christmas (if it all)? What kind of traditions do you have? Can you still practice these in adulthood? I love the Christmas season. I love the weather, the seasonal produce, and the atmosphere. Most of all, I love celebrating Christmas with family and friends.

Non-Alcoholic Drinks for the Silly Season
As a non-drinker, it’s nice to have alternative party drinks that are a bit more exciting than the usual soft drink options. These drinks also provide an enticing alternative for alcohol drinkers who are usually bored by the non-alcoholic options. You might want to consider some of the following if you’re hosting people over the […]

Leftovers and Student Cooking
My Saturday routine is to go to the central market and buy a ‘magic box’. Five bucks and I get a stack of vegetables and fruit that sets me up for the week, but when you’re living on a student budget and shopping and cooking for one, how do you use up all your food […]

I like to think that I do my part for the environment. I recycle, I put organics waste in the compost bin, and I try to limit using plastics, but my one downfall is food waste. Food gets forgotten in our fridge and, sadly, often has to get thrown out (in the compost bin).

Recipe: Cacao Almond Bliss Balls
As part of my efforts to eat and live more sustainably, I’ve started making what are commonly known as ‘bliss balls’: a mix of dates, nuts, and other good things.
