TAHINI FLAX HEARTS

TAHINI FLAX HEARTS

These are the perfect snack to pop in your mouth. Even though they are small, they are quite filling.

MEATLOAF STUFFED PORTOBELLOS

MEATLOAF STUFFED PORTOBELLOS

This recipe can also just be a meatloaf. That’s originally what it was. I made meatloaf for my cousin and put the slices of pancetta all over the top. The result was a moist flavorful meatloaf. We each had a thick slice with veggies on […]

CUCUMBER & SALMON BITES

CUCUMBER & SALMON BITES

Anyone who knows me knows I hate cucumbers. You will rarely find a recipe of mine that includes it. I won’t even try to make something with cucumbers. So how did this come about? My friends and I had a ladies luncheon and one of […]

SPINACH FETA OMELETTE

SPINACH FETA OMELETTE

I love omelettes, they are the perfect breakfast and this one packs well for a lunch at work. It can be eaten hot or cold. This makes 4-8 portions depending on how many eggs you want to eat. I make it 4, so it ends […]

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 […]

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 […]
