Cauliflower and Tofu Curry

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

Spiced Whisky Pecan Pie Cheesecake

This cheesecake may be the best cheesecake ever. And I would know, because I have made so many cheesecakes. Once upon a time I cooked my way through the Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese calendar. For real. I made every.one. For every occasion I’d whip together a...
Creamy Tomato Mac and Cheese Bake

Creamy Tomato Mac and Cheese Bake

One of my favourite things about the cold weather is that I feel like I have all the reasons to make creamy and cheesy pasta dishes – like this one – also a February recipe. I have permission. It’s expected and needed. It’s cold and we need...
Almond and Cherry Granola Bars

Almond and Cherry Granola Bars

Today we are paying homage to a granola bar that has saved the day more than once this past month. I am very serious. This will save you from yourself.. As in save you from the vending machine in the lunch room, fries at the arena kiosk, from another bowl of cereal, from near starvation when mom has not made it to the store yet….

Cinnamon Sugared Pecans

These sugared pecans are deliciously spicy. They are impossible to leave alone. In fact, batch two is getting dangerously low. You may want to double this recipe.

Sweet Potato and Kale Tortilla Soup

Sweet Potato and Kale Tortilla Soup

This soup is fun to eat and sweet with a little bit of a kick (very little, just enough) and full of beautiful, colourful veggies. I’m just so please about this. And then you can top your bowl like a taco or a heaping plate of nachos! Seriously, best soup ever.

Cranberry Apple Muffins

Cranberry Apple Muffins

Because, because, because it’s Monday and I have apples and the holidays are around the corner which means I also have cranberries. So I made Cranberry Apple Muffins. Just because. And because a certain puppy needed her orientation… I spent a little extra...
Freezer Black Bean Fajita Burritos

Freezer Black Bean Fajita Burritos

What I do like to have in my freezer are single serve things. Things that I can grab on my way out the door when I don’t have time to put together a lunch for myself. Because a day without lunch is just not a good day.

Roasted Sweet Potato Frittata

Roasted Sweet Potato Frittata

Frittatas are one of my favourite ways to do eggs for dinner or for a late lunch on the weekend. I find them less fussy than omelets and easier than Quiche since there is no crust to deal with. But still impressive and satisfying. They also do just as well served at...
