Loaded Morning Muesli

People are constantly asking me how they can incorporate more veggies into their diets, and breakfast is the answer. When we nibble on toast and bagels and pancakes, we’re missing an opportunity to load up on nutrient-rich vegetables. That’s why I’m a huge fan of non-traditional breakfasts. Soups, savory porridges, kale and broccoli bowls, this […]

Salted Caramel Pecan Swirl Ice Cream

Do you dig the sweet ‘n salty treats? I used to think these were opposing flavours that could never be best friends. Flakes of sea salt on my chocolate? Nah, I’d rather just flick ‘em off. As many of you already know, adding a bit of salt enhances sweetness, especially in baked goods. Given that […]

Quick Pickled Radishes

  My grandparents had a tiny apartment kitchen with only a couple of feet of counter space. How my grandmother managed to cook voluminous holiday dinners, including matzo ball soup, gefilte fish, brisket, kugel and honey cake, is beyond my comprehension. A thin drawer next to the fridge pulled out to reveal a worn, built-in […]

Homemade Sesame Tahini

Jars of tahini used to last a long time in my house. I’d use a daub here, a spoonful there, but overall it was a condiment that was plucked out of the fridge sparingly. This is no longer the case. I use heaps of tahini in smoothies, dressings and sauces. I slather it on toast […]

Collard Wrap Cucumber Sushi Rolls

Last year, I made these tasty Greek-inspired collard wraps and promptly forgot about them, until this fabulous lady brought veggie collard wraps to a potluck party at my house. Suddenly I was struck with the thought that collards might make an incredible substitute for nori sheets in sushi. And I was right. Can you still […]

Rhubarb Orange Chia Jam

I created this recipe using ingredients from SPUD, who supplies me with an online credit. As always, any opinions I express about the products are my own. I am certainly not the first person on earth to make a batch of chia jam, but boy, whoever dreamed up the idea is a genius. Chia seeds […]

A Salad for Salad-Haters with Creamy Basil Dressing

I created this recipe using ingredients from SPUD, who supplies me with an online credit. As always, any opinions I express about the products are my own. As you may or may not remember, I’m not a fan of salads. There aren’t too many salad recipe ’round here, except for ones with roasted veggies, beans, […]

Lemon Lover’s Smoothie

I recently visited Toronto to spend some much-needed quality time with family, as well as play in Meghan Telpner’s pink kitchen. When I lived in Toronto, Parkdale wasn’t a trendy neighbourhood. I probably would have been scared to wander its streets even if I’d heard of it. After spending the winter in Meghan’s Parkdale oasis, […]
