Chocolate Pudding Breakfast Bowl | A Dash of Compassion

I don’t know where the last few weeks have gone but here we are at the beginning of April, one of my favourite seasons of the year (next to early fall) when the snow melts away, the flowers are about to bloom, and everyone is happy and energized as we welcome warmer weather. But with a big snow fall over the weekend we seem to be welcoming winter instead!

Despite how mild the winter weather here in Toronto has been over the last few months, it is back this week but hopefully not for long. I am so ready for spring.

Chocolate Pudding Breakfast Bowl | A Dash of Compassion

Life has been a whirlwind of fun times lately, as hubby and I work on making our new house a home with new furniture and paint colours, dust off our outdoor patio furniture, celebrate birthdays and baby showers with friends and family, and make last-minute trips to New York. With all that’s been going on, there hasn’t been much happening on the cooking front. I’ve been happily enjoying quick yet nutritious meal options at home, like overnight oats, stir-fries, veggie-packed soups and stews, and lots of huge, colourful salads.

This chocolate pudding breakfast bowl is one easy and ultra-delicious breakfast I’ve been enjoying a lot over the last couple of weeks, and I knew it would be a good one to share with you. Besides, who doesn’t love dessert for breakfast? All you have to do is throw a few ingredients in a blender and you’ve got a creamy, chocolatey pudding to enjoy. You can eat it as is or gussy it up with fresh fruit, coconut flakes, nuts and seeds, and maybe a drizzle of maple syrup.

Magical chocolate chip cookie cake

The first dessert I ever made for my husband was a batch of chocolate chip cookies, delivered to his doorstep in a little red gift bag with a note that said, “Happy Valentine’s Day from one singleton to another.” That was eight years ago and just a couple of weeks after our first date,...

Tal Ronnen’s warm kale and artichoke dip

I’m abhorrently against new year resolutions—to lose weight, get fit, eat better, do better, be better. January 1st means the start of a new diet, phase one of a “new you” plan, or a 5 a.m. wake-up call to go to the gym as part of a get-fit resolution that likely won’t last. I’d rather stay in bed a little...
