I’ve been craving fish tacos, but I don’t deep-fry anything myself because if I do it once (and it turns out well) then I’m definitely going to do it again, and that’s not good for my attempts at eating well, so I leave the frying up to the professionals! I found a great pan-seared fish taco recipe with a twist, it’s got a an awesome avocado, arugula and mango ‘salsa’. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I’ve been eyeing this recipe ever since got Barefoot Contessa’s Back to Basics cookbook, and when I finally made it I was not disappointed! Roasting the tomatoes for two hours really concentrates their flavour, making them rich and the salad delicious. With the festive colours in the salad I thought this would be a great time to share it, hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I am not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination, so anything that is quick and/or easy in the morning is my friend. After picking up many breakfast sandwiches because I was running late, I decided to make my own quick and easy version at home. I like to use bagels (because I love bagels) but it works just as well with any type of toast. Enjoy!
Soup is the perfect solution to the weather getting cooler, especially if you have the good fortune, like myself, to catch a cold that also comes with this time of year. So I’ve said it before, I’m not good with vegetables and am constantly working on adding more to my approved list, and this soup makes me want to eat peas all the time! The spices really set it off, it’s good for you, and it’s quick and easy to make (I couldn’t help myself with the title). I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Continue reading

Pulled sandwiches always look delicious, and, since I don’t eat pork, I was determined to find the perfect pulled chicken…and I think I did! This recipe is great for summer BBQs, and would be a perfect addition to your Canada or Independence day celebrations. Continue reading
Green beans are on the small list of vegetables that I eat, I promise I’m working on expanding it Nana! These green beans are super easy and tasty, and go well with lots. Apologies for the lack of photos, I’ll add more next time I make them but I was focused on the main, the Satisfying Onion and Goat Cheese Frittata. Continue reading
I’m sure the scenario of your grandmother trying to convince you to eat your vegetables when you were little sounds quite familiar. I’m also sure that the thought of a vegetable like Brussels sprouts doesn’t usually produce a mouth watering sensation. Both of these sentiments are grounds for thinking that this recipe is one of the the last things you’d think I would post here, but I promise it’s worth it.
I am the first to admit that I’m not good with vegetables, and, until very recently, Brussels sprouts were definitely on my ‘Not’ list. Continue reading
