Hummus is one of those snacks that is easy to pack and fills you up before you know it. Chick peas, the key ingredient in hummus, is packed with protein, fibre, iron and so many other awesome nutrients, making it such a great snack for the work day! In my early days I used to […]

Lemon Butter Sauce

Spring is finally in the air here in the city, even though it doesn’t feel like it just yet. It is supposed to snow this Easter weekend, but I’m not going to let it bring me down. I already stored my socks away and am wearing my spring flats! When Spring arrives, it’s time to […]

Avocado Dressing

We all know how good avocados are for us. These green powerhouses are full of potassium, fibre, healthy fats, antioxidants, and much more. Avocados are so creamy and rich in texture that it is a great choice in adding to a variety of recipes. In the mornings I like to add it onto my eggs […]

Pear and Feta Wreath Appetizer

During the holidays, we always want to prepare something special, but realize we can’t do it all at once. We need to find ways to create dishes that we can prepare ahead of time and then just defrost or warm up before serving. Let’s face it people, we aren’t a restaurant, although sometimes that’s what […]

Holiday Avocado Dip

If you’re anything like me, your diet lately consists of pretty much Ferrero Rocher chocolates all day. This is the issue around the holidays. Friends and family are showing up for holiday visits, which is great, but that means we always have little snacks and treats ready for them. My cellar is full of chocolate […]

Festive Cheddar Crackers

Crackers have always been that quick snack to keep the kids quiet and hold them off until the next meal. I wasn’t always a huge cracker fan, unless there was a wheel of melted brie next to it, then I would indulge. Now with Emilia, I’m always looking for homemade healthier alternatives to keep her […]

Juicy Turkey Meatballs

Growing up my mother made the best meatballs, hands down. I know I am biased because she is my mother, but feelings aside, I cannot find anyone else who can make a more softer and tastier meatball than her. My mother has always been the type to mix minced meat to get the best flavours. […]

Roasted Pepper and Squash Soup

The weather in the city has changed dramatically overnight. That’s one of the things about Canada, you can be wearing shorts one day and the next you need to dig out your parka. I really love our four seasons. I know a lot of people can’t stand the cold, but I embrace it. While others […]

Sweet Potato and Squash Croquette

Lately it’s been hit and miss with my 10 month old daughter. There are days where she will eat a bowl full of pasta and others where she refuses to be fed by anyone and only wants pieces of bread. She’s also not ready to eat just anything in small pieces. For her to eat […]

Cheesy Cauliflower Bites

I have a love/hate relationship with cauliflower. It’s not my favourite vegetable to eat on its own.  When I bite into them my palette’s reaction is nothing short of ‘meh’. Growing up, cauliflower was only allowed to be made one way, boiled then sautéed with potatoes. It’s good, don’t get me wrong, but I end […]
