This soup turned out to be a little bit of sunshine in a bowl. The colour is very springy and the pureed texture is smooth with hints of liquorice, mild onion and a nice balance of acidity and sweetness. I use fennel frequently in stirfrys and even raw in salads. [...]
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.
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 [...]
I am all for fast and nutritious when it comes to days that are non-stop. Today was no different. It was the first day of March Break and it was go, go, go from the second I opened my eyes and it still hasn't stopped. I knew how ever that [...]
Its the Saturday before March break and I am finally starting to wind down to enjoy my week off. I have planned to run some errands, get some appointments out of the way and do some baking. It is supposed to be +12 Monday so I thought instead of spending [...]
I love meals that are hearty, delicious and easy to make. This potato skillet is a lovely addition to a supper or even as a breakfast. you could add some breakfast sausage or bacon and you have a great one pot meal. This dish is 26.7g net carbs and only [...]
I make many curry dishes but this is the first green curry I have made and it was a hit! Its has subtle hints of coconut milk and spice. A co-worker a while back gave me the basics of making a good green curry and it was the best suggestion [...]
We went to a local food market in Hamilton today called Nation's. It is an eclectic collection of some of the most random things with everyday grocery items thrown in. It has items from every corner of the world and I find browsing through the isles fascinating. It took us [...]
Every weekend we go to Tamp our favourite coffee shop in the village square. They have the best Americano in town and wonderful treats. One of our favourites is a chocolate chip blondie which came highly recommended by one of the Baristas. She gave me a short synopsis of what [...]
I adore Indian food with the deep hues, intense flavours and the tantalizing aromas. I think my apron is permanently stained with turmeric and curry. Oh, and as a side note, if you sprinkle a little turmeric on your toothbrush during your morning clean it is great for whitening your [...]
My son decided to take up snowboarding this year. Considering the winter we are having in Southern Ontario, the conditions have been great. Cold, (actually more like bitterly cold) but great! He has been going with 3 other friends so we have been taking turns driving (only 1/2 hour away) [...]
I love to make soups. They make a great quick meal with grilled cheese and there are always left overs for lunch. If you don't own a pressure cooker you can still make it in a large pot but it will take double the time to soften up the squash. [...]
Vietnamese food is so fresh and full of a huge combination of flavours and textures. Unfortunately it can also be loaded with carbs due to the use of rice and rice noodles so I substituted the rice vermicelli noodles for high protein, high fibre Adzuki Bean spaghetti. It is thin [...]
We have many different dietary needs/wants in our house. T1.5D, pescetarian, and two picky teens. Because of this I am very familiar with making subtle changes to recipes to satisfy everyone's needs. Whether you are vegan/vegetarian or simply don't like fish, you may pass over a terrific dish because it [...]
I love salads for dinner and this one filled me to the top!
I love breakfast and I also love breakfast for dinner. This Frittata is a nice twist on a boring omelet and instead of regular breakfast I used salmon sausage. I found the salmon sausage at my local grocery store but it you are unable to find them breakfast sausage, Italian [...]
