Recipe #12: Cinnamon Bun Oatmeal

Oatmeal is one of those things that I find people either love or hate; I am part of the former group. I know mushy oats alone doesn’t sound too exciting, but when you add ingredients like nuts and bananas, it makes things more delicious and gives the well-needed texture. So made this cinnamon bun oatmeal…

Recipe #11: Cauliflower, Chickpea and Sweet Potato Curry

I was really looking forward to this recipe because I love curries but to be honest, I was kinda let down. There were so many spices and yummy vegetables that went into the pot, but when eating it, I still felt like it was missing something. Adding a sprinkle of salt to my bowl of…

Recipe #10: Melon Mojito Salsa

At first, this salad did not sound very appetizing to me. I’m not really a huge fan of fruit salad, and with the addition of cucumber, mint and jalapeno pepper, I didn’t have my hopes too high that this would be a winner. But yet again, I had another successful dish. The combination of the…

​Recipe #8: Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps are one of those things that make you feel like you’re being healthy. This recipe actually was pretty darn healthy though, so it’s alright.

​Recipe #6: Greek Yogurt Lemon Raspberry Scones

I haven’t made a scone in a long time so this was a nice breakfast. I love anything with lemon and raspberry, but together, those flavors combined to make a delicious scone. And the citrus pop in the glaze made things even yummier – even though it got a little melted because the scones were…

Recipe #5: Roasted Asian Salmon Fillets

Another amazing recipe! The salmon was super moist and flavourful. I love the pungent flavour of hoisin and ginger. It was a good combination of sweet, salty and citrus. The only change I made was using lemon juice/zest in the marinade, instead of lime. I served this fish with a stir fry of cabbage, peppers,…

Recipe #4: Guac by Gretz

You can’t really go wrong with guacamole. My version is usually just mashed avocado with lime, salt and pepper, but this recipe was so good! It was a bit of chopping with the tomato, onion, cilantro, garlic and jalapeno, but all those things really make it taste super good and fresh I used green onion…

Recipe #3: Winter Grain Salad

I’m really happy with how this recipe challenge is going! This salad was so good! There are so many different ingredients which all combine to make a super yummy dish. I quite enjoyed the freshness that came from all the citrus and fresh herbs. I used brown rice as the grain and roasted sweet potato…
