Back to Normal & a Recipe for Caprese-Inspired Linguini

So that day came and went; we visited with family and friends, ate amazing food, and danced until we could dance no longer. Now, it’s back to real life. I’m still getting back into the groove of things, so until life is back to normal, we’re eating simply. There’s no time for frivolous foods – […]

Ripe Ingredients & a Recipe for Peach and Avocado Salsa

There was a bowl of little yellow cherry tomatoes sitting on my counter the other day. They were deliciously ripe, softening slightly, but the skin held firm when I’d squeeze the little fruits between my fingers… it was time for them to be eaten. With the heat of the last week or so, I wasn’t […]

Italy Mode & a Recipe for Garlic-Rosemary Focaccia

I’m in Italy mode. It may be because C and I took an Italian cooking class a few weeks ago. Or, it could be that impending trip to Italy {this autumn}. Whatever the reason, I feel like food isn’t sufficient unless it is doused in olive oil and covered in tomatoes and basil… or unless […]

Spectacular Storms & a Recipe for Fresh Bruschetta

It was mighty humid the other day. The air was so thick it I could practically feel the steamy substance flowing into my nose, and down into my lungs. The scent {oh, the scent!} of all the delightful plants permeated the condensed air; a natural perfume of lilacs, pine needles, and grass. The strangeness led […]

Lazy Days & a Recipe for Lemony Green Pasta

As we get closer to summer and the sun makes itself present in my life a little bit more each day, I get lazier and lazier. Well, sort of. I become a lazy cook. I don’t want to spend hours preparing dinner when I could be out riding my bike. I don’t want to stand […]

Revisiting Europe & a Recipe for Spaghetti Squash with Beef & Vegetable Sauce

A few years back, I went to Paris. During Paris Fashion Week. “Why didn’t I do my research?” I thought, as I wandered through the stunning Jardin des Tuileries, where the telltale tents were set up. I suddenly felt short {which doesn’t happen often}, clumsy {probably because I am}, and poorly dressed in comparison to […]

Citrus, Rosemary-Lavender, and Roasted Garlic Finishing Salts

A sprinkle here, a dash there, a white plate dotted with colourful granules – finishing salts are a beautiful addition to any dish, especially when you make them yourself. Last January I was given some flavoured sea salts from Sea to Sky Seasonings, a mouth-watering array that, naturally, I used as soon as possible. They […]

A 60’s Housewife & Slow Cooked Bolognese Sauce

I bought a slow cooker a few weeks ago, and now I’ve got mixed feelings about it. On one hand, it’s fantastic, as it does all the work for me. On the other hand, I feel like a 1960’s housewife who should be radiantly smiling while cooking instant mashed potatoes, and, of course, donning a […]

Sweetly Spicy Salsa

It’s easy to see that fall is on its way. The produce at the market is changing; summer treats are giving way to autumn goods, and almost too-ripe fruits are being sold quickly by the caseload. It’s the perfect time to preserve the season, don’t you think? Over the weekend I dropped by the Crossroads […]

Creamy, Spicy Avocado Salsa

Sometimes, you just need a little avocado. Mashed up to make guacamole, sliced and scattered on a salad, spread on a sandwich… you can eat it however you want. Nutritionally speaking, avocadoes are a kind of a big deal. Not in a Ron Burgundy big deal way, but in a contains healthy fats, lowers your […]
