CAPRESE BREAKFAST TOAST

CAPRESE BREAKFAST TOAST

  On weekends my favourite thing to do is go for brunch. To me, it is like an event. I want to go somewhere with delicious menu items, whether it’s a signature dish or a classic, good coffee, maybe a mimosa and of course my […]

BANANA COCONUT MUFFINS

BANANA COCONUT MUFFINS

  As with most banana muffin or bread recipes, it starts with you having a bunch of bananas sitting on your counter that you were going to eat or make a smoothie with. But the days went on and now they’re black so your only […]

WEEKLY MIX

WEEKLY MIX

  When I get really busy during the week, I have to have something that is quick and easy to make. And though a big pot of chilli or a casserole can make a fast dinner or a lunch to go, I found I got […]

GREEN SMOOTHIE

GREEN SMOOTHIE

  Smoothies are my favourite everyday dessert. I use kefir for its probiotic properties. It’s a fermented milk drink that has lots of good bacteria. Coconut oil has so many health benefits and when I first heard of adding it to a smoothie, I was […]

SUGAR-FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

SUGAR-FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

  I love jams with berries. Whenever I’m in the grocery store I see all these wonderful jams made with fresh local berries. Then I turn the jar over and see how much sugar is in it and put it back. One of my favourite […]

ORZO FRITTATA WITH SMOKED TURKEY

CHAI SPICED GRANOLA BARS

CHAI SPICED GRANOLA BARS

  To me, granola bars are the perfect snack. They carry well, are sweet and tasty, and you can make a batch of them and they last for two weeks in the fridge. I always have one in my bag, and I keep a container […]

ROSEMARY PARMESAN HERB MUFFINS

ROSEMARY PARMESAN HERB MUFFINS

  I’ve been testing low-carb recipes lately. If you’re someone who wants to do a low-carb diet but really misses having something like bread with your meals, then these muffins are for you. What I love most about them is how many things you can […]

SUNDRIED TOMATOES & ASIAGO MUFFINS

SUNDRIED TOMATOES & ASIAGO MUFFINS

  Happy New Year! With the start of a new year, we tend to start something new, a new workout plan, a new diet, a new set of something or other. For me, it’s low-carb recipes. For the next 3 months, I will be featuring […]

TEX MEX CASSEROLE

TEX MEX CASSEROLE

  This dish makes me so happy. It has all my favourite flavours and lots of spice. It’s a low carb take of chili with corn bread. The “chili” part doesn’t have beans, but is packed with peppers and ground beef. The “corn bread” is […]
