Goat Cheese & Avocado Spaghetti Squash

By Sunday, November 2, 2014

The spaghetti squash saga continues! Honestly I haven't been eating it as often as I should be, but I have two baby ones in my fruit bowl ready for this week. I am thinking of my buffalo chicken spaghetti squash and then maybe a goat cheese sauce of some sort... And yes, I keep non-fruit in my ...

Arugula Pesto Pasta

By Wednesday, April 23, 2014

And I’m wayyy behind in my blogging again! Seriously, because this photo first appeared on my Instagram on March 23rd. Which is a month ago. And considering I make 2-4 new recipes a week… I am way, way, way behind. For example, these posts are outstanding: Homemade naan (I’m sorry – I promised this recipe a long time ...

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? I've giving you a healthy recipe and a not-so healthy recipe each week. Aren't I thoughtful? I would say I'm trying to convert the blog to ALL ...

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup with Avocado

By Friday, January 10, 2014

One-pot wonders. My favourite. Newsflash - I am a busy person. My parents are quite possibly the busiest people ever, so I come by it honestly. I want to do everything and be involved in everything, and that means I often I am out of the house Monday to Friday with very little time to cook. ...

Super Simple Quesadillas

By Friday, June 7, 2013

I’ve always been pretty independent. For the most part, I don’t mind doing things on my own, and I really enjoy my alone time. It’s when I am most productive and relaxed. This is a good thing, especially since My Other Half travels so much. I am often home without him and that means I have ...

Avocado Pasta with Spinach & Basil

By Tuesday, February 26, 2013

I pinned this recipe over a year ago. A YEAR AGO. That's how many delicious recipes I am overwhelmed by every single day. Hundreds. Still, I'm super surprised it took me this long to try making pasta with a creamy avocado sauce because, well... I am addicted to pasta and absolutely love avocados. So often I ...

Crab & Avocado Salad with Wasabi Dressing

By Thursday, December 27, 2012

First of all, I am totally over-the-moon to be writing this blog post from my brand-new MacBook Pro! I got it for Christmas from My Other Half. Isn't he great? Perhaps it will motivate me to blog more - especially about the things I've been procrastinating, my like my organization projects, decorating and gardening. This recipe ...

Shrimp & Avocado Cucumber Bites

By Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Hors d’oeuvres are difficult in the summer. I typically think of them as being hot finger foods served by waiters dressed as penguins. But when you’re hosting a dinner party in 40 degree heat, that’s not really going to fly, is it? Let’s be honest – there will never be waiters dressed as penguins serving anything ...

Chicken & Avocado Egg Rolls and Ginger Pork Potstickers

By Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Even though today was rainy, I can’t help but feel happy, relaxed and above all, blessed (and not just because my lawn needed the rain). I just had the most amazing weekend. There was lots of cooking, talking, relaxing, reading, wine and quality time spent with My Other Half. It was just us, all weekend long. ...

Broccoli & Blue Cheese Soup

By Tuesday, May 10, 2011

This post was updated in February 2015 with new photography! I am writing this not long after my parents have hit the road and are off to Toronto where my Dad has some speaking engagements. It’s very sad to see them leave, but I am happy and feeling really satisfied with their visit. We did everything ...

Wasabi Salad with Carrot, Grapefruit & Avocado

By Friday, November 12, 2010

I have previously confessed to my obsession with Thai and Asian foods. It really can be a problem, especially when I want it every single day for every meal. There’s something about the flavours, spices and textures that is intoxicating to me. It’s just downright mouth-watering and delicious. My Long Lost Friend enjoying Asian Night I ...

Pea & Avocado Hummus

By Friday, September 10, 2010

It’s amazing to me that I haven’t mentioned her before, but I have a bit of an obsession with a certain very beautiful British chef: Nigella Lawson. There are many reasons why I love her. I discovered her TV show “Nigella Express” about a year ago, and was completely taken with it. Her recipes are simple, ...
