We are definitely creatures of habit. Every morning my darling hubby makes me a delicious breakfast of Greek yogurt with fresh fruit, nuts and flax meal. It is filling and full of protein. Sundays however is my day to make breakfast and I figure if he goes to all the [...]

Lemon Blueberry Tea Cake

I remember as a kid I would often spend the weekend at my grandparents and my Granma loved to take me to "The Club" for afternoon high tea while my brother hung out with my Grandad and putzed around the garden. My Granma and I would dress up in our [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Sambal Telur

This Malaysian egg curry is my obsession right now and it requires only steamed (basmati) rice to serve. Traditionally, the eggs would be hard boiled, but this dish is far more delicious when they are a little soft inside. To soft boil the eggs, cover them with cold water in [...]

Bitter Melon Relish

You are probably looking at this recipe and wondering why anyone would want to cook something that is bitter. Well stay with me for a second and give this funny little veg a second chance. It is a tropical and subtropical vine of the family Cucurbitaceae, widely grown in Asia, [...]
