Orange Endive and Blue Cheese Salad

Orange, Endive and Blue Cheese Salad

Oranges are in season. But not just any oranges. Navel oranges. Big, HUGE, gorgeous, juicy, sweet oranges. Oh, I love when that happens.  I get the feeling that I’ll be doing a lot of things “orange” in the upcoming days and weeks. Mind you, I like oranges so much, I tend to eat them “plain”, first […]

Quick Spelt and Buttermilk Bread | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

Quick Spelt Buttermilk Bread

As soon as I saw this recipe on Anja’s Food 4 Thoughts, I just knew I had to give it a try and sooner than later! This gorgeous bread was calling my name so, so loud. I just HAD to have a slice. Plus, I was way overdue for some home made bread. I’d been […]

Sweet Potato and Golden Beets Salad

Oven Roasted Sweet Potato and Golden Beet Salad

OK, let me start by saying that this salad looks absolutely nothing like what I had in mind. For some reason, I’d imagined that there would be more of a contrast between the color of the sweet potato and that of the golden beets. Maybe if I had steamed the beets instead of roasting them, […]

Chestnut Fruit Cake

Healthy Chestnut Fruitcake

According to my daughter, this is the best cake that’s ever been made by anyone, anywhere, at any given time on the surface of this earth. Not even the best “healthy” cake. The best cake, period. That’s what she said EVERY SINGLE TIME she ate a piece. And apparently, she really means it. She seems […]

Fava Bean Soup

Fava Bean Soup

Whenever I come across fresh Fava Beans, or “gourganes” as we call them here in Québec, I can’t help but get super excited, for this can only mean one thing: I will get to eat one of my favorite soups in the entire world… La soupe aux gourganes, or Fava Bean Soup is seriously warm and comforting, […]

Quick Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Super Quick Greek Style Salad

Sometimes, life gets in the way. It just throws so many things at you, there’s just no time to handle everything. Week-ends end before you’ve even had time to realize that they had started. To-do lists remain untouched, or at best, half completed… There’s no time to clean up the house… No time to take […]

Almond Bounty Chocolate Spread

Almond Joy Chocolate Spread

Of all the nut butters that I have made thus far, this one HAS to be my ultimate favorite. Funny thing is, though, when I first tasted it, I thought it was a total failure. I didn’t care for it at all. I came THAT CLOSE to chucking it. BUT, I decided to let it […]

Avocado Grapefruit Parfait

Avocado and Pink Grapefruit Parfait

I’ve really been on an avocado kick lately. Avocado and pink grapefruit, to be more precise. I don’t know where I got the idea that the two would work real well together, but one day, my brain went something like “Hey, I’m in the mood for avocado and pink grapefruit. Fix me something, will ya?” […]
