Berry Love & a Recipe for Blueberry Soba Noodle Salad

Guys, I don’t know if you know this, but it’s blueberry season. Has been for a while now. Okay, of course you know – if you’ve been in a grocery store or to a farmer’s market {and haven’t been living under a rock or in a cave}, it’s pretty clear to see. There are blueberries […]

Potato Math & a Recipe for Warm Roasted Potato Salad with Kale

If you know me at all, you know that I’m a meat and potatoes kind of girl. No, that’s a lie. I am neither of those things. In fact, I am everything but a meat and potatoes kind of girl. I grew up in a meat and potatoes household {and, apparently, am trying to reach […]

A Healthy Switch & a Recipe for Quinoa Tabbouleh

Sometimes you just need a good, healthy side. Or a salad. Or, say, a side salad. Tabbouleh is a classic, but it doesn’t offer a whole lot nutrition-wise. Don’t get me wrong; it’s good for you, but what if it was even better? That’d be pretty awesome. Enter: Quinoa Tabbouleh. Switching out the bulgur or […]

A Healthy Boost & a Recipe for Winter Cabbage and Kale Salad

I don’t know what the weather has been like where you are, but here it’s been gross; as in arctic temperatures, tons of snow, and ice covering absolutely everything. It’s the kind of weather that inspires an impromptu move to a tropical island {who’s in?}. It’s also the kind of weather that inspires comfort eating. […]

Salsa Love & a Recipe for Black Bean Salsa Salad

Last week I picked up the current issue of Food Network Magazine, and inside there was a little booklet with fifty different variations of salsa and guacamole. Need I say more? I feel like the only appropriate reaction to such a thing would be impersonating Saturday Night Live’s Molly Shannon as Sally O’Malley saying, “Fifty!” […]

Sunny Winter Days & a Recipe for Spelt Berry Salad with Pistachios & Blood Oranges

I’m tired of wearing pants. I know it’s still winter and all, but I’m positive that I’m destined to live my life somewhere hot and sunny. Somewhere that will allow me to forever wear sundresses and sandals, and never have to utter the words “pants” or “closed-toed shoes” because the items are simply unnecessary and […]

Spring Vegetables & a Recipe for Greek Quinoa Salad

The produce at the market is changing. Root vegetables and winter squashes are slowly being replaced with a rainbow assortment of colourful goods; bright yellow, orange, red and green bell peppers, juicy heirloom tomatoes, and thistled artichokes now line the shelves and fill my basket. It’s an exciting change, a sure sign of spring. An […]

A Warm January & A Refreshing Spinach-Egg Salad

Every morning, upon waking, I look outside the window expecting to see telltale signs of a Canadian winter; arctic-like winds blowing snow off the pine boughs, not a sign of life in the freezing forest {as  the animals are in hibernation or hiding}, and high drifts of snow against trees, fences, and houses. Instead, I […]

A Healthy Side: Wild Rice and Citrus Salad

As much as I adore this season and all of the deliciousness it has to offer (Pumpkin Pie! Cranberry Upside-Down Cake! Cinnamon buns!), I feel like it’s a bit of a test on the strength of my will power. Don’t get me wrong, I’d happily sit down to an entire Apple Pie (my mom makes […]

Grilled Peach Salad with Grilled Beef and Goat Cheese

My, how I’ve evolved. In the past few months, I’ve gone from being a timid, terrified, non-barbecuing lady to being a lean, mean, grilling machine. Well, I’m not that lean… and I’m actually pretty nice… but I’m definitely a grilling machine. So now I am a somewhat lean, not so mean, grilling machine. Anyways, when […]
