Coconut Carrot Thai Soup

My garden has truly been a garden of plenty and I am amazed every time I go out there. Zucchinis are like baseball bats, cherry tomatoes by the truck load and once dug up my carrots are lovely bunches of orange goodness. They are not long leggy ones like you [...]

Giant Grilled Stuffed Zucchini

I know we have already discussed this but my garden never ceases to amaze me. The fruits and vegetables that I am harvesting are beautiful, full of colour and absilutely massive. The zucchinis are the size of a small baseball bat so naturally stuffed zucchini are the fist thing that [...]

Coconut Curry Lentil Soup

Ok, so we have already established that I love curry and I love soups. This soup is just another addition to my "MUST MAKE THIS AGAIN!" list. It is bursting at the seams with flavour and it makes enough that you are guaranteed to have lunch the next day. I [...]

Fast Fry Beef and Kale

This meal is so easy and so fast you wonder how it can satisfy your hungry crew. That is precisely the beauty of this dish. I used the kale from my kitchen garden and threw it in a little at a time so some bits were cooked but still a [...]

Low Carb Cauliflower Cheddar Soup

It has been a rainy couple of days in our neck of the woods so I figured a thick creamy soup and a protein packed sanny on low carb bread was in order. Cauliflower is a humble little bumpy vegetable. Its creamy white flowrettes pack more of a nutritional punch [...]

Ham and Egg Spinach Salad

After work today I spent and hour and a half mowing our new sod for the first time. It was looking like a little bit of a jungle. Birds were getting lost in the luscious vegetation and our poor Boston Terrior Nico has to bound like Bambi to get from [...]

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 Tex-Mex Casserole

My kids gave me an excellent vegan cook book for Mother's Day and I have been looking forward to trying them out. It can be difficult to find low carb vegan or vegetarian foods as they are all high in carbs because most of the meat alternatives are beans and [...]

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 [...]
