Energy Balls with Dates

Energy Balls



We love to snack during the day. In between meals we need something to give us energy to last a couple hours. Those bite-sized Energy Balls with Dates are not only delicious, they are also packed with nutrients. They taste much better than a snack bar that you buy at the store. They are easy to make, even your kids can make them. They like to roll these in coconut. When you start making your own snacks, you will stop buying the expensive packaged ones at the store.

Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips and $250 TARGET Giveaway #ThankFALL

Banana Bread


We spent Thanksgiving weekend at my sister's cottage in Orford, Québec. We had a nice view on the lake. It is so peaceful. In the summer her family spends hours on the lake fishing and canoeing. During the weekend she also invited my parents for two nights. We don't get the chance to see them often because we live three hours away from their hometown. Friday night I prepared a nice homemade pasta sauce and then we played cards all night.

hummus

You all know how I like to talk about food, share pictures of my meals and inspired you to cook for your family. As a Sabra Canada Tastemakers I had the chance to try different kind of hummus and I eat it everyday. I even bring hummus when we go camping, visit family or go for a picnic. This Greek Salad Hummus Pizza is a winner in my house. We could eat it couple times a week. For family gatherings this Hummus Dip with Pita Chips will disappeared in no time. It's healthy and so good. Sabra also makes delicious fresh salsa and dips.

Can you believe it's already week 4 of the Subway Canada #CommitToFit challenge? Last week we had to recruit someone to exercise with us. My husband and I walked, every day, for 45 minutes. This week's challenge is to think fresh. We are challenging you to get out and enjoy the fresh air. We like to walk outside all year long. We feel so good afterwards. In the winter we also enjoy skiing and snowshoeing. Even when it's snowing or raining we go. That does not stop us.

Old El Paso goes Gourmet with Restaurante

Do you find yourself dreaming of beautiful beaches, sombreros and Mexican food? I do! In my second life I could be a #MexicanChef. We have Mexican nights at home and we love Nachos, Enchiladas, Burritos, Fajitas, Quesadillas. Olé!

I love to cook from scratch but some nights time does not permit me to spend countless hours in the kitchen. I have to make sure my family is well fed under 30 minutes without sacrificing flavour. This is when Old El Paso Restaurante comes into play. How does Steak Carne Asada, Baja Fish or Chicken Tinga sound to you? Play La Macarena and have fun making dinner for your family!
