Chickpea Artichoke Salad

Chickpea Artichoke Salad

For over a year now our daughter has been a vegetarian and since she’s still a growing young woman we’ve stressed to her how important it is to ensure that she is getting adequate protein in her diet. Fortunately she absolutely loves chickpeas, which are very high in protein, and this dish is one of […]

Traditional Potato Salad

Traditional Potato Salad

Spring has arrived and outdoor parties and barbeques are back on the agenda. When you imagine yourself at an outdoor party, what are the food items you automatically think of? For me, two right off the top are hamburgers or sausages on the grill, and of course potato salad. This traditional potato salad is very […]

Healthy Delicious Pâté

Healthy, Delicious Pate

Whoever said you can’t have your cake and eat it too has never tried my pâté! :) Most people I know, they fall into one of two camps. They either love the flavor and texture of pâté, or hate it for similar reasons. It’s also typically very fatty. I wanted to make a pâté that […]

Gluten free Easter cake

Light as air gluten free Easter cake

Here’s another yummy recipe to add to the “gluten free” bucket :) It’s extremely light in flavor and texture. For me it’s perfect just how it is, paired with a cup of good coffee. My husband prefers it with a blob of whipped cream and some fresh fruit.  The idea for this recipe comes from […]

St. Patrick's Day Guinness Stew

St. Patrick’s Day Guinness Stew

Lebanese Grape Leaves

Lebanese Grape Leaves

Similar to the recipe for my Lebanese Chicken Shawarmas, this recipe is adapted from the grape leaves sold at an authentic Lebanese restaurant in Calgary. These are lighter than the most common Lebanese grape leaves which typically have meat such as lamb included. These grape leaves are slightly sour so I recommend pairing them with […]

Tuscan Bean and Kale Casserole

Tuscan Bean and Kale Casserole (with GF option)

Mention the word casserole and most people think of a heavy, traditional food. This Cannellini bean and kale casserole will give you a different perspective of what a casserole can be. It’s vegetarian, loaded with vitamins and minerals, is high in fiber and has a nice mild flavor. (Although my husband spiced his up with […]

Mookies

Mookies

When you combine super healthy ingredients and still make something super delicious, that’s the pinnacle in foods. And when you combine a muffin with a cookie, well I call that a mookie! I made these mookies because my husband eats a lot of flax seed for it’s high omega 3 content. Flax can be tricky […]
