Roasted Curried Cauliflower

I’m not a side dish person. I don’t mind eating them, I just never cook them. Since I typically chop heaps of vegetables for a vegetarian entrée, I rarely have the resolve to do the same for a secondary dish too. This recipe was just begging to be made, but as much as I adore […]

Mini Quiche with a Sweet Potato Hash Brown Crust

Don’t you hate it when sick people refuse to stay at home? I do. Like when you’re on public transit and a rider is sucking back mucus, or you’re at work and hear a colleague hacking up a lung. (Um, perhaps I shouldn’t be using these lovely images in a food blog…). That’s why I’m […]

I was immediately intrigued by them, but hesitated to purchase some since I wasn’t quite sure how I would use them. Then, earlier this week, […]

Kale Chips

Making kale chips has taught me two important lessons: 1. Kale chips are awesome. 2. Kale chips are extremely flammable. In my eagerness to scarf down these crispy, paper-thin nibbles, I tipped them into a bowl before letting them cool completely in the pan. After snacking for a few minutes, I left the chips in […]
