Spaghetti Squash with Feta and Kale

Spaghetti Squash with Feta and Kale

This. This is how I like spaghetti squash – when it is still spaghetti squash. When we are not really pretending it is something else. But serving it up as it is.

This Spaghetti Squash with Feta and Kale is spot on… if I do say so myself. 🙂

Cauliflower and Tofu Curry

My curry love aside, most curries are veggie filled bowls of healthy goodness making them a smart mom choice for family dinner. This quick Cauliflower and Tofu Curry is no exception. My favourite thing about this dish is its incredible simplicity – hardly more than 5 ingredients (none too exotic) that come together to make something just really good.

Spiced Whisky Pecan Pie Cheesecake
