Creamy Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup

Looks like I’ve been craving all sorts of comfort food lately, and when it comes to comfort foods, cream of mushroom would without a doubt come pretty high on my list of most comforting foods. However, who says cream of something usually says “high in fat” and “calorie dense”, so if I was going to […]

Pan Fried Whole Tilapia

There’s something wrong with this picture. I mean, this photo shouldn’t be here. Why? Because I really don’t care for fish served that way. At all! First off, I just hate the fact that it is staring at me. I mean, come on, food with a face? Not a big fan… And secondly, I hate […]

Cabbage (and red lentil) Soup

I had leftover cabbage in the fridge. It was just laying there, all sad and lonely, and if I hadn’t done anything to save the poor thing, it would’ve just gone to waste. I hate letting perfectly good food go to waste, so I had to think of an idea quick, before it was too […]

Fresh Fig and Cendrillon Pizza

One of the foods I have the most fun experimenting with is pizza. I like creating flavours that are miles away from the usual meat and veggies we are so used to seeing and eating. Since I am a big advocate of the fruit, cheese and nuts combination, this is something I just love throwing […]

My favorite snack of the moment

This has become a big favorite of mine lately. I would say I have this snack at least 5 times a week, although I often replace the toast with a few unsalted peanuts. The taste of the apple mixed with that of the almond butter and cinnamon is really interesting. I find Red Delicious or […]

Baked Egg and Spinach

The title for tonight’s post should’ve been “Olive and sun dried tomatoes polenta” but silly me realized earlier today that I totally forgot to make my polenta yesterday, so that I could leave it in the fridge to chill overnight. Sooooo, I had to swap things around a bit and decided to have tomorrow’s supper […]

Coconut Crusted Shrimp and Spicy Pineapple Salsa

It must be that I am really fed up with winter. Or maybe that tropical fruits are in season? I can’t tell for sure, but all I know is I seem to crave foods that have a tropical twist to them lately. Pineapple, coconut, mango… I think I’ve eaten more bananas in the past weeks […]

Another Quinoa Inspiration

It’s a good thing I was cooking only for myself tonight, for I wouldn’t have made many friends if my kids had been at home. Both of them hate rapini and quinoa and my daughter literally gags on sun dried tomatoes. It’s too bad really because rapini would be one of my favorite vegetables. Probably […]

Barley and Lentil Soup

Tonight, I had planned on making this soup. However, I felt extremely lazy today and decided to put off grocery shopping until tomorrow. I thought I would stop on my way back from work instead of making a special trip today. Now I just know that I will regret this tomorrow, but it’s a decision […]

Oatmeal with a tropical twist

I am being true to my word and have been eating oatmeal at least once a week now for the past month. I am truly enjoying this, really! By changing the flavor combinations, it just never gets boring. However, I’m about to start experimenting not only with flavors but also with combining / using different […]
