Black Bean, Sweet Potato, and Red Quinoa Soup

black bean and sweet potato soup-8161

Can winter fare be both vibrant and comforting? I think this colourful soup is proof that it can. Sometimes it feels difficult to pack in as many bright coloured vegetables and fruit into one’s diet this time of the year, but it’s certainly possible. Just think of all the bright colours in season right now […]

Herb & Cheese Drop Biscuits… with a secret ingredient!

drop biscuits-7978

Last week, I set on a mission to create a quick and easy biscuit recipe free from shortening, butter, or lard. In terms of easy biscuit recipes, I knew a drop biscuit would fit the bill. When I’m making a meal around the holidays the last thing I want to add to my list is […]

My Go-To Kale Salad

kale salad-7942

Lately, I’ve had a few requests to blog about some of my favourite quick and easy lunches. This made me laugh at first because many of my lunches involve standing over a stove sampling the recipes I’m testing that day and then inhaling the cold food that’s left on the plate after a long photo […]

Spiced Red Lentil, Tomato, and Kale Soup

red lentil tomato soup-7710

This is the kind of soup with broth that tastes just as good, if not better, than the actual add-ins. Is it normal to want to guzzle the broth? Well, it is now, my friends. It’s actually a miracle I have any taste buds left because I’ve burned my tongue so many times since dedicating […]

Creamy Orange Sunshine Soup (aka…Frankensoup!)

creamy cashew carrot orange ginger soup frankensoup-7579

Frankenstorm. Earthquakes. Halloween parties. It has been quite an active weekend out there. I hope you’re all keeping safe! Nothing too crazy is happening (yet) weather-wise in Southern Ontario, just days of relentless windy rain and many more looming ahead. Between the quake on the coast of B.C. and Hurricane Sandy on the east coast, […]

Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts with Rosemary and Garlic

roasted brussels sprouts and fingerling potatoes with rosemary-6793

I absolutely adore brussels sprouts, but this wasn’t always the case. Growing up, I despised them as most children do. In my early twenties, I gave them another shot and they slowly grew on me over the course of many holiday dinners. I’d place a few on the edge of my plate “just to try” […]

2-Minute Apple Cinnamon Peanut Butter

apple peanut butter-6650

I have yet another way to feed the fruit and nut butter addicts of the world. That would be me. And possibly a few of you! Aside from slathering apple butter on toast and muffins, swirling it into oatmeal, baking with it, and eating it with a bog ‘ol spoon, this recipe today takes it […]

Creamy Avocado Spaghetti Squash Pasta + How To Roast Spaghetti Squash

how to roast a spaghetti squash-6663

Somehow, I managed to live the first 25-26 years of my life before trying spaghetti squash. Actually, I could add many, many foods to that list. When I first came across spaghetti squash, I didn’t quite know what to think of it. Stringy strands of squash? How the heck do I get that to work? […]

Slow Cooker Naked Apple Butter

apple butter-6597

Last year, I dusted off my slow cooker and made my first batch of apple butter. While it tasted incredible, I realized (after the fact) that I cooked the apples way too long. I was left with a mere cup of apple butter from 5 pounds of apples. That sure was some thick, concentrated apple […]
