Lentil-Walnut Loaf

It has been very hot here in Southern Ontario over the last week or so and I have to say this is one of the driest springs I can remember. Normally I would be doing a happy dance but this is the year we laid sod and re-seeded at least [...]

Vegan Quinoa Burrito

This lovely little wrap was a delicious and filling dinner. A perfect balance of creaminess from the cashew cheese and a little bit of crunch from the broccoli. You can opt to use soft tortilla wraps if you want a more traditional wrap but I love these pitas. They are [...]

Cornish Pasty

My husband was born in Manchester, England so I think the desire to eat English style pub foods pumps through his veins. The only thing with traditional pub grub is that it is generally high in fat, carbs and salt. Although I did use a traditional pie crust (I used [...]

Tilapia in Tomato-Saffron Broth with Broccoli

I eat a fair amount of fish so I am always on the hunt for different dishes. This dish is somewhat like a soup but is really more of a fish stew. I also chose to use broccoli but you could also add cauliflower or a combinations of both cauliflower [...]

Meatless Feta “Meat”balls

When I can find a meat substitute that doesn't necessarily include soy products I get very excited. Sure I eat Tempeh and Tofu from time to time but I was very excited to eat these meatless meatballs. They have a very similar look and texture to real meatballs. Fairly easy [...]

Asparagus-Chicken Roulades

This is a fancy little dish but is quiet easy to prepare. I paired it with sauted rutabaga and fresh snap peas and grilled the remaining asparagus. The family enjoyed theirs with the flattened chicken breast and I substituted my meal with Tilapia. If you prefer, you can also use [...]

Baked Keralan Fish Curry

Keralan, regionally referred to as Keralam, is a state in the south-west region of India on the Malabar coast. Coconuts grow in abundance in Kerala, and consequently, coconut kernel, (sliced or grated) coconut cream and coconut milk are widely used in dishes for thickening and flavouring. Kerala's long coastline, numerous [...]

Parmesan Tilapia

We eat fish at least once a week in our house. Although the rest of the family eat meat of all kinds I only eat fish so it is nice to be able to make one dish and not have to make any substitutions. Tilapia is a very mild white [...]

Beef Marrakesh

I love to cook in my Tagine that was given to me by a good friend a while back. This hearty meat dish will fill your home with a tantalizing smell. A perfect dish for a cool Sunday evening dinner with family.
