Holiday Soup For The Soul

20101116-IMG_0547

Before we get to this incredible soup, there are a couple things I need to get off my chest. 1) Eric and I have lots of nicknames for each other. Two of our favourites are: ‘Pinky’ and ‘The Brain’. Remember that show? Depending on the day, we fight over who is Pinky and who is […]

Yesterday, a few of you expressed interest for the Creamy Sweet Potato Bake recipe, so I thought, why not kick off the Meal Planning Week with this casserole dish? The rainy and gloomy weather suited it well too. Sadly, it was a bust! It turned out bland and the flavours were just off. It had […]

Gazpacho

IMG_5959

I went 27 years of my life never making Gazpacho and in the past 2 weeks I’ve made it 3 times.  I blame hot yoga and my crazy water cravings. ;) “Gazpacho is a cold Spanish tomato-based raw vegetable soup, originating in the southern region of Andalusia. Gazpacho is widely consumed throughout Spain, neighboring Portugal […]

Chilled Strawberry Almond Butter Soup

I wait all year long for local strawberries to make their brief appearance and when I finally see them at the market and in the grocery stores I tend to go a bit crazy. I hoard them. I freeze them. I go to Strawberry festivals. I make Strawberry Banana Soft Serve. I make Strawberry Shortcake […]

Being a gardener in August is a wonderful thing. Even for a Former Black Thumb! [Can I call myself a Former Black Thumb if I still kill indoor plants? I guess that is debatable…] I now have enough organic kale to supply Whole Foods. ;) The sweetest tomatoes I’ve tasted! We’ve been enjoying toasted tomato […]

Untitled-3

Last week, a blog reader, Mary, asked me if I could put together a post on healthy lunches that could be made ahead of time. I thought it was a great challenge for back to school, so I got to work planning! I spent a few days coming up with different lunches that could be […]

It’s the first day of Fall and I know exactly what you need. A Snuggie, so you and your family can snug on the couch watching all your new favourite Fall shows. That poor dog. Why do I get the feeling that you are all sitting at your computer right now with one on? Don’t […]

Mushroom Millet Soup with Cheezy Garlic Bread

IMG_4015

Imagine this scene: Last night, Eric and I got dressed up (me as the Queen of Hearts, him as the Scream character) and we stuffed 40 treat bags for the trick or treaters. They were bursting with candy and small toys like leap frogs and mini games. Last year we got around 20 kids, so […]

Broccoli & Cheeze Soup

IMG_5660

I have scary memories of all of those “Cream of” canned soups. Anyone? For some reason my dad used to love those canned soups. Depending on the day it could’ve been Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Broccoli, or Cream of Chicken. He’s probably eating one right now, actually.  I’d watch in fear as he cranked […]
