Soft Whole Wheat Pretzels

This soft Whole Wheat Pretzel is vegan and can be made in about and hour. This is not my usual post first thing in the New Year. Typically I go for something cleaner... like a lentil soup or something on the lighter side. Okay - usually a soup. And no, I am not making...

Vegan Cranberry Ginger Snack Cake

I see this cake making an appearance on Christmas morning. Something to throw in the oven while the coffee brews and then share slightly warm after most of the presents have been opened. I would serve as I did here, in generous wedges

Ginger Molasses Cookies

These Ginger Molasses Cookies may very well be the best cookie I have ever made. Three kinds of ginger give these cookies an extra gingery kick!

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Cranberry Salad

This Shaved Brussels Sprout and Cranberry Salad has a decidedly holiday twist with the dried cranberries and walnuts. I’ve used a very basic lemon dressing with a little honey to sweeten things up. Nothing crazy. This is easy stuff to throw together. This is one of my favourite ways to serve Brussels Sprouts — raw.

Balsamic and Garlic Roasted Carrots with Parmesan

This past Thanksgiving (Canadian version) my Sister-In-Law made these garlic roasted carrots and then covered them with Parmesan and I decided right then that it was the best thing ever to happen to a bunch of carrots. So I had to make them. This is my take on her...

Sugar and Spice Pumpkin Butter Muffins

It would not be fall without a pumpkin spice recipe and here is this year's contribution - Sugar and Spice Pumpkin Butter Muffins. I've used pumpkin butter in these muffins (rather than just plain ole'  pureed pumpkin) and it really gives these an intense, creamy and...

Oven Roasted Maple Glazed Carrots

I'm not entirely sure why I ended up with so many incredibly cute and perfect farmer's market baby carrots, but I did. Thank you Costco. And fortunately for you, I've used these lovely little bits of crunchy orange and created a couple of side dishes for your next big...

Caramel Apple Pie Cheesecake

  This might be the best cheesecake I have ever made. I think someone said that. I'm proud of this one. This Caramel Apple Pie Cheesecake is a creamy, lightly spiced cheesecake baked in a gingered graham cracker crust, covered in sautéed cinnamon apples, topped...

Easy Red Lentil Soup

Guys, I'm going to be straight with you here. As much as I love my slow-cooker, most days I am just not together enough at 7am to execute a slow-cooker recipe properly. Nor am I disciplined enough to get such a thing started sometime between dinner clean up and my...

Apple Oatmeal Muffins

A simple cinnamon muffin packed with nutritious oatmeal and fresh fall apples. Pack these in the kids lunch box for a healthy low-fat snack.

Roasted Turnip and Root Vegetable Mash

This is perfect holiday – thanksgiving, Christmas, you name it feast – dish. It covers off the mashed sweet vegetable requirements in a new and unexpected way. I have now decided that the vinaigrette may very well be the best thing to ever happen to a turnip.

Red Pepper and Chili Jam

It’s that time of year when the garden chilis are being harvested and taking over your kitchens. And while I can’t promise you will use up the whole of your bumper crop with this jam, you will get to use a small lot of them. Besides, I’m in love with this stuff.

Chipotle Burrito Casserole

I have to admit that batch cooking is really not much my thing. But recipes like this are meant to be made ahead and socked away for a rainy day.... or a very busy day. So once in a while I will bust out a huge casserole like this Chipotle Burrito Casserole and stock...
