Recipe: Zucchini Quinoa Cakes

Zucchini Quinoa Cakes

You wouldn't believe it, but taking a really nice picture of food for Instagram photos is a lot of work! And that's why I don't do it :p

My food is made in every day life without fun lighting effects, or special plates, it's literally plated, photographed, and then eaten immediately after.

I digress. I haven't made these in ages but they are SO good! Hearty and filling with a delicious dip, and they even taste delicious cold.

If you want to hide your zucchini even more for those picky eaters, blend up the zucchini first instead of just shredding it. Enjoy!

Oh yes you guys, I found it, and I'm in love with it! I'm so thrilled about my little find that I went so far as to make a video about this! I've been on the hunt for the perfect pinky-nude lipstick and I came across the new Urban Decay Vice lipsticks, the color Naked is one of their best selling colors and it's because it's the perfect pinky-nude! 

The only issue I have with this lipstick is it's $21 a pop. And I use it every. single. day. Which means this would probably last me a month and it's too rich for my blood! 

So I stumbled across the perfect dupe at the drugstore and it only costs $3.49, YES.

Click on image above to watch my YouTube review.

Yup, I'm still alive, I know it's hard to believe! I do this every time I return to work from mat leave, it becomes months and months in between posts. As much as I love putting out content, it's hard finding a balance between doing that, or doing something around the house, or you know...sleeping :D

Today I'm doing a little review on hnybaby.com's Sippy Strap. In a world of unnecessary baby items to have...this isn't one of them! I've found this extremely useful and durable, and for only $8 + free shipping, you really can't go wrong.

Keep on reading after the jump for my full review.

What is MONAT and how do you say it?? MONAT stands for Modern Nature (maw-nate) and we are an anti-aging hair care line that is new to Canada. We were founded in the United States in 2014 but saw such great response to our unique hair care line that we launched in Canada in October 2015.


All of MONAT's ingredients are naturally and botanically based, we don't use any harsh chemicals like DEAs, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, etc. so there won't be any adverse skin reactions. Not only do we have high quality ingredients, our products are also scientifically and clinically proven to grow hair, thicken it, strengthen it, protect it, and help reduce hair loss!
