Oasis Hydrafruit: a new beverage to try #oasiscanada #hydrafruit

I think I’ve found a juice for our home to have on hand! Yes, I am that mom that doesn’t really give store-bought juice boxes.  I do more so if friends are coming over and a special treat.  Also, I  normally use my juicer and for those days I don’t feel like it, I tell the kids to go…

Tangled in Blue Gin Smash

I love entertaining.  Do you host more or tend to go out more?  With the Holidays quickly approaching you might be inclined to try a signature cocktail to welcome guests as they nibble on appetizers.   Have you ever thought to use wild blueberry juice to give your cocktail a “je ne c’est quoi?” for a fresh taste of wild…

The Juice Fountain Cold XL from Breville is fabulous!

Do you juice? If you don’t, would you juice if you had a Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL?  Sometimes we need to do a reboot and with the Fall weather coming next month, they say Fall and Spring are the best times to do a cleanse.  I’ll be doing the Breville 5 Day Fresh Planner juicing cleanse and checking in daily with delicious recipes…
