Don’t you just love when an idea and a plan of attack come together at once? I was reading an article by Sam Worley on Epicurious about baking with citrus, and how to use the whole fruit for extra flavour. Worley recommends soaking or simmering slices of orange (rind and all!) in simple syrup… so […]
Tonight was veggie roasting night around here — I did up a big batch of parsnips, carrots & sweet potatoes and then also had some Brussels Sprouts in the fridge. Seeing as I had the oven on anyway, I thought I’d roast them too. There’s a little bit of alchemy that happens when you roast […]
I did a really good clean out of the fridge today — and realized I didn’t have any ready-to-go healthy food in there. So I immediately put a pot of water on the stove and cooked up some quinoa. I’ve really been enjoying grain salads lately, and quinoa salad is one of my favourites. So […]
The lovely Ash and I were getting together today for some much deserved tea time and a celebration — and as such I totally needed to make celebratory mini muffins. Or “Celebration Muffs” as we are now calling them. I went with banana nut as my flavour of the day, as I had some bananas […]

You know you’ve got a best friend when she demands a birthday post… so in her honour I present Cranberry & Chocolate Banana Cookies of Birthday Celebration!

So earlier this week, I picked up a bag of kelp noodles (the Sea Tangle brand, if you’re wondering), and stuck them in the fridge. “What the heck are kelp noodles????“, you may be asking? Well, they are just like they sound. They’re made from kelp (seaweed) and have no taste of their own, so […]
Ok, ok. I know, enough with the holiday food! But I’ve got just one more holiday recipe for you, and this one’s good enough (where good = tasty & nutritious) that you can use it all year ’round! This was our family dessert for Christmas Eve (our big holiday meal), and it was a special […]
