Squash Gratin

Spaghetti Squash Gratin

I love spaghetti squash. Unfortunately, it’s never really inspired me to create anything, per se… I seem to always be eating it the same way: as a replacement for pasta, topped with tomato sauce, or as a side dish with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Nothing much to it. I’d even […]

Pumpkin Pie Instant Baked Oatmeal

Long week-end wrap up and Instant Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Bake

What a great fantastic long week-end it has been for me. I had packed my agenda with so much stuff that I didn’t even have time to write my scheduled post yesterday… so you’re getting it today instead. Sorry about that! I just had to make the most of the last long week-end of the […]

Crazy Good yet Unbelievably Healthy Pumpkin Pie | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

Crazy Good yet Unbelievably Healthy Pumpkin Pie

*EDIT: While absolutely delicious, this pie isn’t your typical Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin pie. It’s more like a cross between a cheesecake and pumpkin pie, so it does have a bit of a tangy taste to it and isn’t really all that sweet. If a “traditional” sweet and spicy pumpkin pie is what you’re after, […]

Roasted Chickpeas | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

Roasted Chickpeas and an update on my new ride

Remember how, a while ago, I said that I was the proud new owner of one of these? And remember how I also said that mine would be white and that I wouldn’t be getting it for another 5 weeks? Well, that was over 10 weeks ago!!! Believe it or not, up until today, I’d […]

All Natural Hazelnut Butter meets Dark Chocolate

Now that I’ve realized just how easy it is to make nut butter at home, I get the feeling that I will be experimenting with many flavors and combinations. Already, my batch of Vanilla Almond Hazelnut is pretty much ancient history, so I thought I better get busy making a fresh batch before I completely […]

Mango Green Monster-2

Mango “Green Monster” and other smoothies

When I came back from Cuba, I was unbelievably bloated and literally felt like I had gained 10 pounds. 10 pounds in one week is A LOT! Now, I don’t know whether I had really gained that much, as I refused to step on the scale to find out. All I know is I’d *ahem* […]

Fennel and Pear Salad

Fennel, Pear and Cranberry Salad

Do you like fennel? I know I do. I really, really do! However, I don’t eat it as much as I’d like to. Why? Well, because frankly, I lack the inspiration as to what to do with it. Apart from this classic “Paper Thin Fennel Salad” which I’ve made and enjoyed on a few occasions […]

Pear and Fig Bran Muffins-

Fresh Pear and Dried Figs Bran Muffins

You guys already know this. I have a thing for muffins. I have an even bigger thing for bran muffins. I will flip over backwards, then forward and sideways, and then backwards again for a bran muffin. The problem is, most bran muffins, although one might believe are healthy and good for you since they, […]

Pear and Fig Instant Bran Bake

Fresh Pear and Dried Fig Instant Bran Bake

I can’t believe it took me that long to come up with this bran version of an instant bake. I mean, if there is one thing that I can absolutely not resist in life, it’s a bran muffin. Ever since I was a little girl, I always considered them to be the ultimate muffin! In […]
