RADICCHIO SALAD

RADICCHIO SALAD

I went to this restaurant in liberty village. They claim to serve authentic southern Italian specialities but really what it was, is the chef going to the grocery store close by and buying prepackaged foods and assembling them – but charging for authentic good quality […]

SESAME SUGAR SNAP PEAS

SESAME SUGAR SNAP PEAS

Lately, I have been trying to get more veggies into my diet without eating salads all day. These sugar snap peas did it for me. They are raw, crunchy, sweet, and salty. The sesame oil gives them a wonderful nutty flavour. They are so quick […]

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 tired […]

LEMON SODA

LEMON SODA

I was a big soda drinker a few years back. I sadly admit I was drinking at least one diet soda a day. Back then, I thought if it were calorie-free or sugar-free then it was fine. I now know better and if I’m going […]

CHIMICHURRI CHICKEN

CHIMICHURRI CHICKEN

A few years ago I went on a South American adventure with my cousin Danielle. Our first stop was Buenos Aires. We drank a bottle of Malbec every night with dinner, and dinner was always grilled meats with sides of veggies. I really loved the […]

CITRUS HERB ROASTED CHICKEN

CITRUS HERB ROASTED CHICKEN

My friend Jessica and I have a birthday tradition. Every year for our birthdays we make each other dinner. Given that Jessica and I are both foodies these aren’t your average dinners. Last year Jessica made me homemade ravioli and she always has the best […]

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 berries. Then I turn the jar over and see how much sugar is in it and put it back. One of my favourite snacks is […]

ORANGE ALMOND CAKE

ORANGE ALMOND CAKE

I’m always looking for low-carb snacks and this cake it great for that mid afternoon treat or tea time. Since there is no flour in this, the key to getting it to rise are the egg whites. I use apple cider vinegar to stabilise them […]

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 do […]

MEATBALLS STUFFED WITH MOZZARELLA

MEATBALLS STUFFED WITH MOZZARELLA

This is a great appetizer for the holidays. It takes a little work to make, but the end result is totally worth it. These can be made in advance so the day you’re entertaining you can warm them up and concentrate on other things.
