WEEKNIGHT GNOCCHI

WEEKNIGHT GNOCCHI

Not everything has to be made from scratch. There are some great products on the market that are healthy and made well. So for those nights when you don’t feel like spending time creating a homemade dish, just go to your pantry and grab a […]

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 […]

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 […]

KALE CHICKPEA SALAD

There is a restaurant in Toronto called GUSTO 101. They have this kale salad that is absolutely amazing. It’s one of their signature dishes. Their Cavolo Nero has kale, currants, pine nuts, pecorino, and a lemon vinaigrette. Every time I go there I order it. […]

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 […]

BREADED CHICKEN

BREADED CHICKEN

I love breaded chicken. Whether it’s a burger, strips, nuggets, I love them all. So when I decided to try making a low carb breadcrumb I was skeptical. Could I could achieve that desirable crunch or get that tasty coating that keeps the chicken moist? […]

BREAKFAST BREAD

BREAKFAST BREAD

I took my low carb biscuit recipe and made it into a meal. This is my new go-to breakfast. It has everything in it; spicy sausage, veggies, cheese, all nestled in between a savory herb filled biscuit. I bake it on Sunday and package it […]
