Speedy Summer Hemp Power Salad

powersalad

One of the things I love about summer is that I can eat like a Queen without much effort. Mid July, our crisper is now overflowing with farmer’s market vegetables, none of which need much fuss or strategic planning in order for a memorable meal. Life gets a bit simpler (yet busier) in the summer […]

Here’s a fun summer square that highlights two of my favourite foods – summer cherries and almonds! I don’t know what it is, but I just love the combination of almonds and cherries. Add a touch of almond extract and it puts me over the edge in bliss. I adapted my Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies […]

Every morning for breakfast while in Calgary, I made my favourite hot oatmeal for Diane and I. It was so chilly and rainy during our stay, the only thing on my mind was something hot. I had no desire for anything cold like vegan overnight oats or Green Monsters (except for the amazing peanut butter […]

Before we left for our trip, I found myself with a couple pints of blueberries and a few spotted bananas to use up. I’ve been meaning to make my strawberry chia seed jam for a while now, so I ended up adapting my recipe using blueberries, all-natural sweetener, and a touch of vanilla. It turned […]

All of these warm spring mornings have brought back my cravings for no-cook parfaits. Parfaits are one of my favourite summer foods because they are virtually effortless, don’t require a stove, and are different every time I make them. Lately, I’ve been enjoying this breakfast quite a bit and it only dawned on me recently […]

Layered Raw Taco Salad for Two

If you ever find yourself in a salad rut, this raw taco salad is a great way to break out of it. Hearty and flavourful, every bite is a fiesta in your mouth. It’s a bit (ok, a lot) different from the taco salad of my youth, but certainly no less tasty! My inspiration comes […]

IMG_0494

Eric thinks I’m getting senile. I would have to agree…when it comes to certain things. Like limes. We were unloading groceries the other day when he came across a huge stash of limes buried deep in the crisper. "Why on earth are you hoarding limes?"  he asked holding up this huge bag of limes as […]

Last week, I had a meeting downtown and it was the perfect excuse to grab a bite to eat at Fresh restaurant. Whenever I’m in the city I try to pop in for a meal, even if that means eating an early dinner at 4pm and hitting rush hour traffic on the way home. It’s […]
