For some reason, I thought this year would be easy.

This year I would be solely focused on teaching. No tutoring on the weekends, and spares during my school day to prep at school. But we all know how it goes. Lessons to write, class websites to set up, tests to create and then mark.. the work never ends.

Especially since if you do finish a week's worth of lesson planning.. well, there is always next weeks that can be planned out.

Healthy Potato Soup

Hearty potato soup that is very easy to make. Made without butter or cream to make it healthier than your regular potato soup recipe.

Does it feel like September yet? With the increased humidity and the grey, rainy days, I am craving more soup than I have in a looooong time.

And by taking a look into my pantry, I knew right away that the first soup of the pre-fall season will be potato soup!

Pumpkin season is here folks!

Okay, technically it is not fall, but the abundance of pumpkin spiced drinks in coffee shops I think it's safe to start cooking up some pumpkin treats in my own kitchen, don't you think?

Pumpkin spice and everything fall! This is my favourite season for its flavors, and I intend to make the most of it.

Hi, favourite dish!!!

Have you two been acquainted? I present to you a healthy (-er) version of your favourite Chinese dish.

I have been looking for something healthier to make at home after coming back from vacation. Is it just me, or is it that every time I go somewhere new I only eat junk?

School is next week!! Is everyone excited??

I just started my new job at my new school today and I couldn't be more excited. But with the days getting busier, and my to-do list getting longer and longer by the hour, it is hard to find time to make healthy snacks for the school year. My hand will start to wander towards the salt and vinegar chips.

Good thing Secret Recipe Club is having an extra reveal day completely dedicated to back to school dinners and snacks. If you want some truly amazing suggestions on what you should try for back to school, just scroll down past the recipe to see what all the other members of Secret Recipe Club are cooking up.
