Tropical Mango, Banana, & Pineapple Kale Salad with Creamy Pineapple Lime Coconut Dressing


As I type this post, we’re getting a snow storm. It’s so beautiful out, but I can’t help but dream of the summer. I can barely remember what the forest looks like all green and full of life. Right now, it’s stark white and eerily still. I don’t know about you, but I‘ve got a […]


Whole Foods Inspired Layered Salad with Orange Ginger Dressing


Remember this fun layered salad I had from Whole Foods while in Arizona?   I believe I said, “Mark my words, this will be the first thing I make when I’m on Canadian soil.” Ok, so it wasn’t technically the first thing I made (not even close if you could see all the recipe testing […]


Dinosaur Dill Crunch Salad with Salt & Vinegar Chickpeas


The healthy dinner recipes continue… I’m happy to report that as of December 30th, I finished off my cabbage that haunted me for almost 2 months in my fridge. 2 months. I think I’ve discovered the fountain of youth because cabbage just won’t die! Plus, I really didn’t want to bring this “cabbage baggage” with […]


Top 5 Salad Recipes of 2011


      Last night, as I was eating my 4th holiday cookie in a row dunked in Holly Nog, I started to think about salad. and Green Monsters. Funny  how that works, eh? and then my thoughts drifted back to more holiday cookies. So I ate the last Chocolate Chip Cookie with toasted pecans (sorry Eric) […]


Over The Rainbow Cabbage Salad with Tahini-Lemon Dressing


Hello, beautiful. I have a secret to share with you about food photography. Don’t eat all the food before you photograph it! I’ve been there before. It usually involves Holly nog smoothies and Chocolate Cake Batter Smoothies. Want to know another secret? Photograph an easy subject, like fruit and veggies. They do all the work […]


Holiday Salad with Cranberry Apple Orange Vinaigrette


Pop Quiz: Shredded Coconut or snow? Answer: Shredded coconut ……just joking! It’s snow. We had our first dusting of snow today and it made for a nice backdrop for a few photos. The snow also made for a near-death experience while carrying the camera, tripod, plate, and salad dressing across the slippery deck. This may […]


Vegan Holiday Dinner Ideas + A New Recipe


One of my frequently asked questions around this time of the year is always, “What vegan recipes can I make for my upcoming holiday meals that will impress the skeptics?” Eating vegetarian, vegan, or other special diet can be challenging, especially around the holidays. It doesn’t help matters when “Uncle Joe” is ranting and raving […]


Top 10 Recipes This Fall


So how do I put this nicely……..biscotti season is going to be slightly delayed. Well, this is a bit awkward now isn’t it. The biscotti recipe that we fell in love with and made twice already turned into a dry piece of junk when I attempted to make it for the third time last night. […]


Detox Salad


One of my favourite things to do after visiting Whole Foods is to re-create salad bar foods or specialty products at home for much less money. Or at least, that’s my good intention until I get home and I can’t remember the ingredient list! Not last night. :) Thanks Eric! After we dined – Eric […]
