Creamy Hidden Salmon Pasta

I’m starting to think that my salmon suffers from excessive shyness. Bummer! I was so looking forward to showing him off. Looks like he had other plans… You see, this salmon was given to me by one of my coworkers, who happens to be an avid fly fisherman. Strangely enough, though, he doesn’t care much […]

Go Green – Have Some Soup!

The last couple of days have been absolutely crazy for me, and you know what they say, work always comes first! So that’s what I did! I worked, worked, worked. That, combined with my the fact that I made poor Mr. Salmon look like he had seen a ghost or something the other night and […]

Home made chips

Nofish & Chips

You guessed it allright! You SHOULD in fact be looking at a mouthwatering plate of this English classic we refer to as Fish and Chips. But, you see, Mr. Cod here had some very important business to attend to and had to send his regrets when he got invited to this photo shoot. Boooh! Seriously? […]

Stuffed Zucchini Boats

I must admit that I am fairly new to the world of grains. Up until recently, I would only eat white rice and well… more white rice. Basmati, Jasmine, Arborio, shushi, or the very popular guy known as Uncle Ben’s. All of them white! Then I’d throw the occasional barley in my soup… and I’d […]

OMGIDITGLIFO – Easter Extravaganza!

Wondering about all those letters? They stand for Oh My God I Did It Thank Goodness Lent Is Finally Over! To me, Lent this year meant 46 days of eating clean, 100% of the time. No processed sugar, in fact, no sweet treats at all. The only exception was a teaspoon of honey here and […]

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie has always been one of my favorite comfort foods. It’s one of those dishes that I used to always go back for seconds. I just couldn’t help it. And even now that I have pretty much succeeded at eliminating this bad habit, Sheperd’s Pie would still be one of the dishes that I […]

Falafel Pita

For some reason, I always thought falafel was extremely hard to make. Pfft! Not at all! I guess it’s only because I’m not familiar with them, for they were never really a part of my diet growing up. But really, they are extremely easy to make: just throw everything in the food processor and process […]

Buckwheat pancakes with Apples and Cottage Cheese

I love buckwheat pancakes. I remember when I was a kid, my dad used to make huge batches, like millions of them, and as soon as he’s have a few ready, he’d call us: “Y a des galettes de prêtes!” (meaning: some pancakes are ready) We’d all come running and sat down to devour them […]

No Knead Country Bread

Remember this guy? This bread was so good, even though it was technically a fail, I had to give it another try. So a couple of weeks after my initial try, I went at it and gave it another shot. While that time the dough actually did rise, the end result was pretty similar, although […]

Squash Coconut and Wild Rice Curry

The weather has been so crappy this week-end. Depressingly crappy. It was awfully cold and windy, plus we got rain, hail, snow and everything in between. I went out for my first run on Saturday and it was so cold, I thought I was going to pass out. Seriously, I had a harder time dealing […]

Tofu Balls and Mint Yogurt Sauce

Soy is one ingredient that I want to eat a lot more of. The only problem is, I don’t really know how to incorporate it into my diet. Plus, up until recently, soy, to me, basically equalled tofu, and I didn’t care much for tofu. I’m learning, however, that soy really does not equal tofu. […]
