One Bowl Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 180 views

I’m pretty sure that banana bread is 50 per cent of the reason why bananas exist. The thousands of banana bread recipes out there is proof of this. I’d wager 25% is allotted to other baked goods, 20% firmly in the smoothie category, and maybe 5% to eating a banana by itself (people actually find that appealing? I digress). While there are a lot of good recipes to be found in the black hole that is Google, this one is my favourite.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini Soup

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 205 views

This tomato soup is perfect for those chilly fall and winter evenings. Here is why I love it:

It is quick. From start to finish, it takes about 20 minutes to make and you will have enough for lunches the next day (and the day after that).
It is easy, requires little prep, and uses ingredients you likely have in your pantry.
It is versatile- for example: instead of cheese tortellini, use beef, chicken or whatever catches your eye at the grocery store, or try substituting spinach with a heartier green like kale.

Little Northern Bakehouse – Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 185 views

French toast can be a challenge for vegan eaters, with its egg- and milk-based batter. After all, it is that very batter that makes the dish so delicious. But as it turns out, a plant-based alternative is not impossible.

This Pumpkin French Toast Casserole is amazing for many reasons. The star of the dish is the gluten free Cinnamon & Raisin Loaf from Little Northern Bakehouse.

Little Northern Bakehouse’s breads are gluten-free, non-GMO and 100% plant-based, meaning they are egg and dairy-free. In addition to the cinnamon & loaf, they also offer a millet & chia loaf and a seeds & grain loaf. If you are buying gluten free bread, you will be hard-pressed to find better tasting bread than Little Northern Bakehouse.

JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District

By Posted on 0 Comments 3 min read 239 views

I love hotels. Opening the door to your hotel room is like opening a bicycle-shaped present at Christmas. You know what you are going to get, but the fun is in the details. There are many options for travel accommodations nowadays – Airbnb, motels, hostels or the more traditional bed and breakfasts. You can crash with a friend or a relative or even camp. The list goes on. I have used all of these at one point or another, and have nothing against them but I prefer hotels. I love hotels. I had the opportunity to check out the new JW Marriott in Edmonton’s ICE District. From the moment you step in the lobby, you know that this is not another generic box hotel. It is shiny, new and absolutely beautiful. With two lounges, two restaurants and the possibly the fanciest gym I have ever seen, the hotel is an attraction …

Jollibee!

By Posted on 0 Comments 3 min read 181 views
On a warm summer day in Edmonton, a line of people has formed, neatly herded by a rope under the cover of several tents, in front of an unassuming building in a southside shopping centre. A man stands guard at the front of the line, asking individuals how many people per party and ushering in just a few at a time. No, this isn’t the scene outside some hot, new Edmonton nightclub. It’s dinnertime and the crowd is waiting to eat at Edmonton’s first Jollibee – suddenly, it’s the place to be. The first time I heard about Jollibee was after Anthony Bourdain’s visit to Manila in Parts Unknown, where he called it “the wackiest, jolliest place on earth.” Founded in the Philippines, the fast-food chain has become an absolute sensation across the globe. Store openings attract crowds days in advance – the first person in line for the Edmonton opening waited three days to be exact. So what is all the hype about?

Credit Unions of Alberta

By Posted on 2 Comments 3 min read 152 views
For most Canadians, financial institutions come in two forms: a brick-and-mortar bank or the online version of the same thing. But for over 10 million Canadians (and counting), there is an alternative option – credit unions. Credit unions look like a bank, walk like a bank and talk like a bank, so what makes them so unique? We answered this during our conversation with Mr. Burns and learned how credit unions have paved the way of banking innovation in Canada to become a niche in the financial industry. Here are 8 things you need to know about the Credit Unions of Alberta.
