Cold Shrimp Salad

Tonight’s supper is already done, photographed and in the fridge marinating, letting all those flavors mingle and develop. I already had a sneak taste (shhhh, don’t tell my daughter…) and I have to say I soooo can’t wait for supper time, for this should be good! Here’s what you’ll need if you want to try […]

Vegetable Barley Soup

If you read my previous post, then you already know that today was a cold and snowy day, exactly the kind of day for a hearty meal such as this one. A good old vegetable soup. I’ve had vegetable soup countless times in my life, but I have to say that this particular one was […]

Another Afternoon Snack…

I was really looking forward to that one! Allright, I can hear you say: there’s not much to it, it’s nothing but a multigrain toast with some almond butter and a banana… But on a day like today, where it’s so cold out and been snowing all day, it became a nice warm, crunchy, yet […]

Mac ‘n Cheese Experience!

I’ve been dying to eat a good Mac ‘n Cheese for months now. I needed to find recipe for a healthy alternative. Funny thing is I was sort of “offered” 2 options last week. Once, while watching “Eat, Shrink and be Merry” and the second flipping through the pages of one of my favorite cookbooks, […]

Roasted Winter Vegetables

I always plan my meals ahead of time. Way ahead of time. Every Friday, I make the list of all the meals that we will eat for the next nine days. Sometimes, during the course of the week, meals swap days. Sometimes, meals get bumped for a variety of reasons, and other times the last […]

Morning Cereal

I’ve often told you just how much I love my morning cereal. I could just eat them without end, really. I love them that much! Well this, is them! My daughter thinks I am a freak, really, because frankly, there isn’t much to them. It’s just a bunch of grains that I mix together, namely […]

Sushi night!

Here is one thing that I cannot do that my daughter excels at! I think she likes it so much that she’s a natural. She finds the patience that is required to make them. I just don’t have it. She spent the entire afternoon in the kitchen preparing tonight’s feast. And I do mean feast. […]

Quick Afternoon Snack

Well, I haven’t been able to post for a couple of days, real sorry about that. In fact, I just wasn’t in a position to cook, or move much for that matter. No cooking, no photos. No photos, no posts. It might be a few more days before I can start cooking again, but I […]

Orange Ginger Tilapia Fillet with Almond Bulgur

I realize that I have been pretty plain and boring with my choice of fish in my life. I seem to always eat the same. Yet, there are so many varieties that I have never tried. So tonight, I decided to give Tilapia a try. While it’s very good, it wasn’t my favorite. Its taste […]

Chicken, Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Sandwich

Another take on a chicken sandwich, another half hour spent in chewing heaven! This time, I revisited one of my classics: chicken, pear, walnuts and blue cheese. To me, this particular combination is simply a winner, taste wise as well as texture wise. You get a nice balance between sweet, salty, tangy and soft, creamy […]

Chicken, Avocado and Oyster Mushrooms Grilled Cheese Sandwich

  This sandwich you are looking at, yeah, that sandwich right there… it was… total bliss! Absolute heaven! The warm crispiness of the pan toasted bread, the creaminess of the avocado, the gooeyness of the gouda cheese, the chewiness of the oyster mushrooms , and the chicken, so tender and full of flavour. It’s like […]

Pizza Night – Party!

  Tonight was another fun pizza night! We’re thinking of turning that into a monthly thing. Making pizza is so much fun, so interactive. We all get to make our own, choose our own toppings, but most of all, we all get to be in the kitchen at the same time and share some quality […]

Spaghetti Chicken Meatballs

Another classic made healthy! This is not your quick and easy weeknight meal. A good spaghetti sauce demands time, there is no real way around it. I’d say the more time, the better. But I managed to make this one in less than 3 hours, and it turned out pretty good. For the ground chicken […]

Miso Soup

This is what was for [very late] supper tonight. Too tired to write at this time. I just finished eating and I am going to bed now. I shall update this entry tomorrow. Next day update… OK, so here is how to make this soup. Really easy, this will takes pretty much only as long […]
