Roasted Squash with Shallots and Pomegranate Molasses

I’m still savouring the wonderful Thanksgiving dinner we had Sunday evening. The food, the company, it was all just perfect. I proclaimed this morning that we should celebrate American Thanksgiving as well, just so we can do it again next month. Michael did such a wonderful job as our host. We all had individual place […]

Corn & Kidney Bean Casserole

The lovely folks at Thomas Allen & Son were kind enough to send me a review copy of a new vegan cookbook — Vicki’s Vegan Kitchen by Vicki Chelf. And so I had a cookbook to curl up with by the fire when we spent a week at the cottage.  While we were up there, […]

Roasted Acorn Squash & Pear Soup

Dear Soup, How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways. 1) You are magic.  Somehow, soup as a whole is always better than the sum of its parts.  You put veggies in a pot with some water, and they come out tasting incredible.  Magic. 2) You make me love winter.  Because who doesn’t […]

Butternut Squash Tortellini in a Sage Butter

As delicious as the Chanterelle Tortellini Aglio e Olio were, Louise and I decided that we wanted a second stuffed-pasta option.  And so, Butternut Squash Tortellini in a Sage Butter were born: This is a very traditional combination of flavours, and for very good reason.   Butternut squash + sage = heaven.
