Easy & Delicious Bruschetta

20100822-IMG_0855

Good morning! Look what little prince was asleep before we were last night! He was out cold. We poked him and he didn’t move, lol. Very rare for him! We slept well until about 4:30am when the cats decided they wanted to turn the bedroom into an all night rave! Awesome. We are such animal […]

In The Food Lab

20100821-IMG_0791

Greetings! Today turned out to be one of those days, but chickpea salad makes it all better. And dried mangos. Lots and lots of dried mangos. But first, confession time. My TJ’s dried mangos are gone. I hid them from myself last Wednesday night when I got home from Chicago and then I couldn’t find […]

Muhammara Roasted Red Pepper Walnut Dip

20100907-IMG_2607

Several years ago I was served Muhammara at a restaurant. It was some life changing dip, let me tell you. My taste buds were overwhelmed with pleasure as I tasted the complex flavours of the roasted red pepper, toasted walnuts, garlic, and spices. Since that day, I have wanted to create this dip at home […]

Hockey Nuts In Canada

20100930-IMG_3780

This time of the year makes me all warm and tingly inside. And no, it’s not just because my hands and feet are starting to return to their habitual winter-like chill or because I am consuming so much cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger my intestines just might bleed. Well that too, but there is another reason […]

Good morning! This weekend is our Canadian Thanksgiving, which seems strange to me after the weekend madness, but I am just happy that I am not the one preparing the entire meal this time. ;) I have been thinking of something that I could bring for my in-laws that would make a fun Thanksgiving hostess […]

High Protein Sweet Potato Dip

20101014-IMG_6147 - Copy

I’ve been on a real bean kick lately. Specifically, a navy bean kick. I know, yawn. However, navy beans are quite the versatile bean! They actually blend wonderfully into almost anything they touch without the faintest hint of beany taste. The little black dress of beans, right here. For example, my High Protein Garlic Mashed […]

20101017-IMG_7464

Good morning!   Can we just bottle Fall up, and not let winter come? I went on a frigid 4 mile run this morning! It was -1C outside which is colder than it has been lately. I thought I might turn into an ice cube. I did 4 miles in about 34 minutes. The hot […]

Any Way You Like ‘Em Crackers

20101019-IMG_7662

‘There are two types of people: Those who bake their own crackers and those who do not.’ I read that quote the other night and it made me chuckle! And then I thought, ‘Pfffft…Cracker snob.’ as I reached into my box of Mary’s Crackers. ;) However, I want to be that person who makes her […]

What could be better than French Press Coffee?   Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes! When I made these for our hiking road trip on Sunday, I was really pleased with the outcome. To my surprise, they were really fast to throw together and tasted incredible. I was able able to cut down the sugar and it […]
