Strawberry, Feta & Spinach Salad with Candied Almonds

By Friday, March 7, 2014

Good luck getting me to make and eat a salad at home. I need one of three things to do it: Wicked awesome dressing. Some of my favourites include this Greek one, this amazing Japanese one from Costco, or the dressing in this recipe. Cheese, period. Goat cheese is my favourite on salads, but feta turns my crank ...

Avocado, Chickpea & Feta Salad

By Friday, February 21, 2014

I LOVE THIS SALAD. I'm not kidding - it was incredible! And SUPER healthy, so it's My Other Half-approved. Thank goodness. Do you see what I'm trying to do here?

Summer Carrot & Feta Salad

By Wednesday, July 31, 2013

I love unconventional salads. That's probably why so many salads like my broccoli one or this buffalo chicken quinoa one show up on the blog. Lettuce can just be... boring. Why not switch it up? This salad is terrific for summer - light, refreshing and delicious. The perfect companion to any BBQed meal. I love shaving carrots. That's ...

Marinated Greek Salad

By Friday, September 25, 2015

Big, chunky GREEK SALAD! We don’t eat enough Greek salad. Every time I plan to make it, I use up all my feta in this salad. Which should come as no surprise since it’s my favourite salad of all time. But anyway. I finally splurged on some super gourmet giant Kalamata olives and just HAD to make ...

By Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Summer salad season! Say that five times fast. It's now been over a month since My Other Half cut out bread, pasta, potatoes and beer and some days it's a struggle to come up with supper ideas. We pretty much always end up at the same decision - a salad! Like a lot of people, our go-to ...

How To Perfectly Cook Quinoa

By Wednesday, March 11, 2015

I still remember the day I first discovered quinoa. There were so many rumours about it floating around... it's like rice that's good for you, it's an ancient grain that has just been re-discovered by the Aztecs, it's a superfood that can replace meat... and some of it was true. Just some. Being the noodle/rice/carb-aholic that I ...

By Wednesday, January 14, 2015

So last week, I shared the 10 most popular recipes on The Domestic Blonde in 2014. Today, I am sharing MY favourite 10 recipes. Because, you know, what I crave, salivate over and subsequently devour is completely different than what you people are interested in. Apparently. BUT I would not write this little blog if it wasn't ...

Five Quinoa Salads Perfect for Lunches

By Thursday, August 28, 2014

It's back to school next week!!! Or at least I think it is. Neither of us are in school and we don't have children, so I'm really just guessing. I cannot believe it's basically September! That's nuts. Even though I am excited for fall, I'm sad summer is practically over too. We haven't even made margaritas yet! Maybe we'll do ...

Spinach & Goat Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

By Friday, March 14, 2014

I stuffed a chicken breast! With ALL the good things. Caramelized onions, goat cheese and my favourite veggie – spinach. Can you tell I’m on a goat cheese kick? A few weeks ago it was roasted red peppers, then feta… and now goat cheese. So sue me. This is what I do. I find someone I like, and ...
