Haddock Filet and Ratatouille Vertical Style

This was an experimentation. I got the inspiration while at a restaurant the other day, although their version was simply stacked aubergine with a balsamic reduction and bocconcini cheese. I wanted to try it, but figured it would be absolutely drenched in oil, so I figured I would make my own version at home. Then […]

Curried Red Lentil Soup with Chickpeas and Quinoa

Tonight I decided to try this recipe from Kevin over at Closet Cooking.  I have to admit that while making it, I was pretty skeptical at one point. Mind you, I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, so I was a bit afraid that I had messed it up. For instance, I didn’t cook the quinoa […]

Seafood Pizza

You probably guessed by now that home made pizza is one of my favorite foods and one that I will have on a regular basis. I think that as long as your crust is made with whole grains, that you keep the toppings healthy and that you go easy on the cheese (go low fat […]

Coquilles St-Jacques

I love Coquilles St-Jacques. It’s definitely right up there on my top 50 list (didn’t I say that not long ago about something else?) Anyhow, I really do love that dish, but don’t find it to be extremely healthy, with the usual bechamel and wine, butter and cream that goes in them, so I tried […]

Peasant Soup

My daughter made this tonight while I was out visiting my dad. When I got home, she was all desperate and said she had ruined it, that it tasted like dish water. She always does that, but her food is always super good. I just thought it smelled incredibly good when I stepped in the […]

Salade Niçoise

This has got to be one of the best salads I have ever had. If I owned a restaurant, it would definitely be on the menu. I would’ve eaten it without end. I just didn’t want to ever get to the last bite. It was that good. Really! A little extensive to prepare, for a […]

Red Lentil and Sole Soup

Tonight’s supper was Red Lentil Soup, to which I added some nice big chunks of Sole fish. Again, a quick and easy meal, perfect for a cold winter night. Here’s how to do it: Ingredients(for 2-3 servings) 1 small onion, diced 1 cup red lentil 4 cups vegetable broth 150g Sole Fillets, in large chunks […]

Stuffed Acorn Squash

I am soooo back on track! And that feels absolutely terrific. Seriously, I never thought that I liked eating healthy so much. I missed it a lot. And I missed experimenting new stuff. Tonight’s meal was a first. I had never tried acorn squash before. I LOVED IT! LOOOVED IT! It’s absolutely delicious. My favorite […]

Raclette – The Leftovers

We had a lot of leftovers, as usual, and my son was working on New Year’s Eve, so he didn’t get to enjoy the traditional raclette. We kept the leftovers for today and had a quick lunch together, my daughter, him and I. I had a lot of vegetables today, and shrimp, so I don’t […]

New Year’s Eve – Raclette and Chocolate Fondue

This is it! Last meal of the year. This should conclude the decadence period and I should resume posting healthy meals as of tomorrow. It’s a tradition here to have raclette for supper on this day, every year. This year was no exception. Only this time, I invited my mom, who had never had raclette […]

Instant Noodles

Tonight, we went to see the final chapter of Harry Potter’s story, to conclude the “marathon” that we had started 4 days ago. I have now finally seen all the HP movies, in the right order, one immediately (or almost…) after the other. When I got out of the movie theater, I was starving (it […]

Lasagna – Fail Squared!

I had a bunch of (not so anymore) fresh tomatoes that I needed to use quickly, some zucchinis and a load of cottage cheese that will expire at the end of the week. I didn’t have to think very long to come up with a plan… Vegetable Lasagna! Alas, it looks like lasagna isn’t my […]

Sweet and Salty Cake – Christmas Edition!

Last but not least, this is the cake I elected to make for Christmas night at my mom’s with the whole family. I had spotted it a few months ago, again, on Jennifer’s site (looks like she is my inspiration for all things decadent!) This cake was no deception. It is absolutely divine. Decadently sweet […]
