Pickled Radish

Happy December everyone! Crazy that we are almost finished with 2021. It’s really feeling like winter here because it snowed quite a bit a few days ago. I love the snow, as long as I don’t have to go outside in it, so I guess it’s time to start my hibernation! Anyways, my post today…

Roasted Delicata Squash

I’m eating all the squash that I can before the season is over! Last week I made Quinoa Stuffed Squash and today I’m cooking with delicata squash! I love this squash because they are relatively small in size which makes them easy to cut through. Also, unlike some other squashes, you can actually eat the…

Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice

Happy Friday! I’m back with my second cauliflower rice recipe. If you missed my first one, earlier this week, I made Mexican cauliflower rice – definitely check it out! Today’s cauliflower rice recipe is more of a side dish, rather than a main course. However, you can easily serve it with your protein of choice…

Smashed Potatoes

Potatoes. One of the most versatile vegetables. I have used potatoes in countless ways before, but this is one I have never tried. Smashed potatoes are made by a two step cooking process: first boiling, then baking. After the potatoes are boiled, they get “smashed” which increases the surface area and allows for them to…

Pumpkin Spice Roasted Carrots

Well it’s officially fall! That means it’s pumpkin spice time! Now you may be thinking, “isn’t that more of a dessert and coffee thing?”, and you are right.. usually. But putting a little pumpkin spice on some vegetables before roasting is so incredible. Trust me. My go-to seasoning for roasted veggies is typically just olive…

Colourful Rice Salad

On Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), it is tradition to eat certain foods, called simanim (see-ma-neem). For the most part, these are sweet items because you want to start the new year on a sweet note. The foods that I am using today – from the selection of simanim – are apples, honey, beets and…

Cucumber Salad

Do you ever buy an ingredient for a recipe that you don’t usually use when you cook? That’s what happened to me. I bought a bunch of dill for my last post (Shredded Apple Polenta) but I wanted to use up the leftovers before it went bad. So I went with the obvious choice –…

Cold Peanut Noodle Salad

I love pasta salad, I’ve posted quite a few on my blog over the years. It’s just such a great dish to make for any occasion really – BBQ, picnic, birthday. Part of why it’s so great is that it can be made ahead of time and can be served cold or at room temperature….

Greek Chickpea Salad

Since this summer has been pretty hot and sticky so far, I have been trying to make as many “cooling” recipes as I can. This has been mostly a variety of salads and sandwiches, using many fresh ingredients and bright flavours. Some of the recent cool summer recipes I’ve made include Strawberry Crostini & Fruity…

Fruity Spinach Salad

I’m loving the summer recipes I’ve been making recently. My last post was crostini with fresh strawberries (link here) and this post is also featuring the beautiful berry. This recipe is a delicious and very colourful spinach salad. I’ve used a base of spinach but you could use romaine lettuce or mixed greens instead. The…
