I’ve got quite a sweet tooth and love food, which means that I’m often snacking on chocolate, cookies and other sweet things that aren’t exactly great for me. When I made my Nana’s Date Square recipe, I discovered that I really like Medjool dates, which is awesome because they’re a great and natural way to sweeten recipes – they’re even a great source of antioxidants! I set out to make a healthier snack and created these awesome, no-bake, Medjool date bars. The Medjool dates and apples hold the bars together, and the coconut, puffed quinoa and Marcona almonds really add great flavour. They’re perfect for any time, anywhere – hope you enjoy!

As I’ve said before, I’m not great with vegetables, so I’m always trying new dishes in hopes that that way will make me want more of that vegetable. I discovered fried cauliflower with tahina and loved it, so when I found this recipe for a baked version I was really excited. It’s super simple but really delicious, hope you enjoy!
I saw this table online and had to share it, two of my favourite things! Wine and cheese are so good together it sometimes seems like they were made for each other. This guide is a great help for all seasons, tastes, and preferences, hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I’m always looking for new recipes and trying to find different ways of getting enough protein and vegetables, so I decided to find a good (and easy!) tofu stir fry recipe. This one is simple and basic, great to serve over rice, and a good one to start off with if you’re not familiar with cooking tofu (like me). 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
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
This is my favourite vegetable soup, and it’s so good at this time of year with fresh, local, field tomatoes. It’s easy to make, and super rich and delicious with very few ingredients. Enjoy! Continue reading
Every year I do a cooking class with my mom as a present for Mother’s Day, and, if you want to copy my idea, I would definitely recommend it because it’s a lot of fun, a great bonding experience, and you learn how to make new things! We normally do it around the actual holiday, but her favourite soup is French Onion Soup, which is a winter dish, Continue reading
I thought that it’d be fitting to end 2013 with a savory breakfasty recipe, perfect for international hangover day, also known as January 1st. This recipe is great for any meal of the day, and leftovers hold up very well. I made it for dinner the other night with a side of these Tangy Lemon Dijon Green Beans, which went really well together.
