She Cooks Macro Featured on The Kind Life!

featured-peachsorbetSoooooo super excited to be featured on Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Life today!! It’s a huge honour and if you haven’t already, I highly recommend reading both of Alicia’s books- The Kind Diet and The Kind Mama. Hubs and I are currently chillaxing at a cottage on a little island near Pointe au Baril in the middle of Georgian Bay and it is bliss. We’ve seen eagles, loons (even a baby loon!!), beavers, muskrats, tons of shooting stars, been to a sacred island to stand quietly and place our hands on a giant stone that seriously looks like a huge turtle, and watched gorgeous sunsets. Today we canoed through water as smooth as glass and it was so quiet you could hear the crickets from shore. As you can tell from my extended absence here, it’s been busy times for us so having this time in nature is really, truly appreciated.

Enjoy these last few weeks of summer- and if you haven’t already, make this peach sorbet!! It is sooooo easy and simple. And delicious too!!

See you soon!! And thank you again to Alicia Silverstone and TheKindLife.Com for sharing this recipe. If you’re a new visitor, welcome!! Here are a few more treats you might enjoy!!

Friday Quickie


Hello Friends. Whew- it’s been a while!! The Universe really is so amazing- you just never know what’s around the corner waiting for you. I have some recipes to share (lemon pudding, anyone?) and more to talk about. In the meantime, while going through some images for a current project, I found this pic from last spring and wanted to share. Hope it brightens your day a bit… Spring will be here before we know it. Hurrah!!! Happy Weekend!!


Friends. I’m neck deep finishing up a huge work project this week with plans to resume regular posting next week. In the meantime, I came across this link today on one of my favourite blogs and had to immediately pop on here and share it with you. It is so apropos to my life- to all of our lives, really.

Body Scrub + Day 12 + Friday Link Love


Happy Friday!! Hope you’ve all had a great week doing the body scrub. It’s already starting to feel like part of the routine. After taking such a long break from doing it regularly, it feels amazing to be back on track- and my skin is also feeling noticeably smoother. ALREADY!! So. Awesome. I’m going to keep it up and report back on occasion over the rest of the project! Okay- gotta run. I’m taking some hours away from the computer screen this afternoon to meet my friend Karin (the gorgeous red-head in the photos this week) for some yummy vegan Indian lunch, and then I’m off to pillage the burdock at the grocery store. Have  a great weekend everyone!

Body Scrub – Day 11

scrub gently

It’s just been a few days and already I feel a difference. Tell me, why is it so easy to neglect something that is so simple and has such an amazing result? It really is all about developing good habits- and being kind to yourself in the process. Sure, there are going to be days where you don’t do it. The thing is to just get back on the train and keep on going- no guilt required. Have you been doing the body scrub this week? I’d love to hear how you’re making out with it (hehe, making out…)

It’s funny how true it is that we neglect such simple things as the body scrub. It did it this morning and I felt amazing and ready for the day afterwards. It is the most simple and life changing practice I could recomend. It is truly AMAZING!

I am loving my body rubs! I’ve missed one day this month. I’m hoping to do two today to catch up. :) My skin is in the dry phase, especially this morning. I hope to get to the fresh, vibrant, glowing phase in the next few days.
