Roasted Bruschetta Orzo

July has welcomed regular thunder showers! Therefore opportune moments to fit in some BBQ time are well treasured. This humidity though – apparently I’m ‘glowing’ and rocking some serious beach hair…in Northern B.C.!? Ok, so I love bruschetta – especially the ‘garlicky slurry’ my dad adds to his recipe. Watch out though, major dragon breath…

Crispy Curry Potatoes

I can smell the LONG weekend approaching – nope…its these Crispy Curry Potatoes I roasted last night. AND that CilantroCream (drool). Alright…the first thought I had this morning when waking up – I can STILL smell the potatoes. SO fragrant and delicious, this recipe is simple and comes out looking like a million bucks! LOVE…

Thai RiceBowl

Welcoming SUMMER like…! The temps have dropped for June (as usual), and I’ve been craving foods to warm my core. This Thai RiceBowl is one that I chowed down on just the other day – brown basmati rice topped with tomatoes poached in a creamy/slightly spicy peanut sauce (packing cilantro + jalapeño) AND a side…

French Toast

French Toast *PlantBased – as kids, my parents would make us anything we wanted for breakfast (with restrictions) on Sunday mornings. It usually came down to pancakes, waffles, or french toast. Clearly we loved our carbs. There was just something about french toast that always felt ultra special. Fancy, really. SO…seeing as it was a…

Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’

What a GAME last night! Congrats Toronto & Oakland – both were super entertaining to watch. In spirit of yesterday’s festivities, I’ve decide to post some Buffalo Cauli Wings – nom, nom. SO…I finally gave into the Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’ craze! After making the rounds at a few favourite eateries to try this stuff out,…

Taco Salad

One look at this Taco Salad and my mouth is watering – yum! Can you see the crisp fresh romaine lettuce peeking through all of those toppings? Yep, it was tossed in that JalapeñoCilantro Salad Dressing I posted the other day. That’s what takes this Taco Salad to the next level – tastefully dressed greens….

JalapeñoCilantro Salad Dressing

If you haven’t tried this salad dressing yet, you’ll want to jump on it! *Now I can’t get that song out of my head. You’re missing out on a VERY good thing – I literally drench my greens in this stuff. In the coming days I’ll also be sharing a favourite summer salad that includes this…

Mediterranean Zoodles

Coming at you with this HOT MESS – Mediterranean Zoodles…ok, mixed in with some (rice/quinoa) spaghetti noodles. Have to have some pasta in there! This is one of our go-to pasta dishes for the warmer months. Just look at ALL of those flavours!…AND simply dressed in a mixture of garlic, fresh lemon juice, sea salt,…

Spiced GreenBeans

Long days like the ones during this long weekend call for some simple fresh eats. Rather than take off and escape to the lake, I’ve been spending every available moment getting caught up on some much needed yard maintenance. Next, the exterior of my house is receiving a total facelift – oy. To keep spirits…

Daikon Salad w/ Miso Dressing

THIS Daikon Salad is quickly making its way up our ‘favourites’ list. Perfect for summer (first tan lines of the year are here! but only on the back of my neck:(, this refreshing simple salad is one that has been on repeat in my house for the past few weeks. Simply dressed with a mouthwatering…

Tasty TVP Tacos w/ Smashed Avocado

Weekend Edition!…I’ve been M.I.A. this week, and have definitely NOT been setting a good example. Spring is getting the best of me (supes busy), and I’ve had to resort to copious amounts of flaxseed crackers, peanut butter, and watermelon to get me through the week. BUT if I’m being honest, I would have ate all…
