Neapolitan Pizza

I could faceplant into these pizzas – Friday has finally rolled around and I’m SO happy about it. Not only is Friday ALL about easy tasty eats, but I’ve been itching to get out into the woods for the weekend. On route! We take pizza very seriously in my family – I may have mentioned…

Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup – skipped the tortillas and went for BBQ Corn instead. This soup  is FULL of flavour…roasted tomatoes, onion, carrot, jalapeños, and bell peppers. A perfect way to warmup on a cool day. What I love about soup is you can make a BIG pot and either share it or store it. It’s also a great way…

MaplePecan Squares

Autumn. My favourite. MaplePecan Squares seemed appropriate (& delicious). Laid the chocolate on pretty thick & tossed in some cacao nibs. I know, AND that creamy centre – yum. This one makes a great treat to store in the freezer for when company stops by, or a craving strikes. SO autumn. The trees just seem…

BeerBatter Cauliflower

Time to switch up those CauliWings for some BeerBatter & Tartar Sauce – a super simple, surprisingly healthy, & tasty snack for Game Time! Hockey season is HERE. Although I don’t have cable, and don’t bother with live streaming – I still enjoy a good hockey game when I have a chance to watch. My…

Peanut Satay Bowl

It’s all about the peanuts…& a few other things! A craving led me to make this oh SO tasty Peanut Satay Bowl. It’s topped with my Ginger & Maple Glazed Tofu (salivating). The season for a warm hearty meals is upon us – yes, please. I took the leftovers to my parents thinking I would…

Blackberry Thumbprint Cookies

Blackberry Thumbprint Cookies – 2ways. The perfect additions to these chewy cookies…fresh Rosemary & dark chocolate. During our run this morning, Max caught the scent of a fox. I saw it first, and managed to keep my cool – can’t say the same for him. Anyone know what it’s like going for a  ‘jog’ with…

Salsa Verde Potachos

Who knew?!…”potachos” is actually a word. I’ve heard of pachos before. Thought I was onto something original – meh, still fun to say! SO it’s Friday – yeah, it is. AND what are Friday’s for?? SHARING! When I get together with friends & family, it’s all about multiple dishes – bruschetta, spinach dip, pickle tray,…

Romesco Bowl

Everyone needs a GOOD Romesco in their life!…for me, a good Romesco sauce is all about balance. Grilled peppers pack a TON of flavour and are slightly acidic, so the right amount of nuts and herbs can make all the difference. I actually added raw sunflower seeds & hemp hearts  for an additional boost of…

Stewed Rhubarb

Breakfast! After dinner…I ponder brekkie – timesaver during the morning RUSH. Stewed Rhubarb & I go WAY back. Not only can it be whipped up in minutes, but is has this slightly sweet tartness that leaves me craving more. I can just feel my cheeks puckering now! It’s been a favourite on cereal since I…

AppleSage Perogies

AppleSage Perogies (pirogies/pierogies) – can’t you just taste fall!? It’s a coming. Happy Friday, all! Just dicing up freshly picked apples, heating up some plant-based butter, and tossing in a few perogies to kickoff the weekend festivities. Ahh, and that buttery crunch. Yum. Cabbage seems to be finding its way into a few of my…

Organic PuffedWheat Squares

AND some days just call for a childhood favourite…Organic PuffedWheat Squares. Nothing like a much needed break (& snack) to get things going strong again – packing away the summer toys & garden goodies. The healthy-ish sugars accompanied by the more healthier addition of goji berries, pepitas, and flaxseed seem to do the trick. I…

Roasted Potato + ZucchiniCakes

What a weekend! I always go into the weekends with the intention of getting some R&R, especially when it’s a long weekend (that extra day can make ALL the difference). Well, it rarely happens. Does that ever happen to you?…I just can’t sit still. First frost of the season on Saturday morning and it had…
