This might not look amazingly good, but believe me, it was DELICIOUS! It also smells absolutely awesome. That one is definitely a keeper, but of course, I forgot to weigh and measure, so I can’t write an exact recipe down. It’s a recipe I adapted from my new bible. Initially, I really meant to follow Nicola’s recipe, but I forgot… View Post
Here’s a good old classic revisited. While I have to admit that it was not THE most incredible Shepherd’s Pie I’ve had in my life, it was very good nonetheless and worthy of being referred to as comfort food.The only thing that needs adjusting, I think, is the moist factor. It was a bit on the dry side. Then again,… View Post
I told you this was coming. Just thinking about it the other day gave me a serious craving for a good warm bowl of oatmeal. Well, it finally happened this morning. I traded my usual breakfast cereal for this. I really love my cereal and am always reluctant to skip even a day, but once in a while, I make… View Post
I was cooking for two tonight, and my daughter will be eating later, so I went with something that she could easily re-heat when she gets back home tonight. Again, I went with a little Asian inspiration, very similar to something I’ve shared a couple of weeks ago, only this time I used salmon instead of shrimp and I added… View Post
Another super quick meal! A simple egg white omelet topped with a few crumbles of Blue Cheese, a handful roasted Walnuts and a bunch of Arugula, wrapped in a Multigrain tortilla, served with a green salad and asparagus. A super good meal ready in under 10 minutes!
This dish is so super easy to make, it’s perfect for a quick lunch or for those nights when you are cooking only for yourself. Of course, you can still make them for several people, it’s just as quick! For one sandwich, you will need: 1 large, thick slice of bread (tonight, I chose whole wheat, flax and sesame), 4… View Post
Low fat cream cheese, asparagus, smoked salmon, a few thin slices of red onions, alfalfa sprouts, Boston lettuce leaves, a few capers on a Multigrain bread, served with raw carrots and zucchini, julienned.
That was yesterday’s supper. Again, pizza made healthy. Whole grain pizza dough topped with tomato sauce, low fat mozzarrella cheese, oven roasted butternut squash, sage, goat cheese and walnuts. More pics!
Today, I spent 4 hours getting pierced and tortured by ink filled needles, so comfort food was in order! What better fits the bill than a good old home made hearty chicken & rice soup? So simple and easy to make, all you need is an onion, a few carrots, some rice and some home made chicken stock, from which,… View Post

SIMPLE SEAFOOD PASTA I love pasta! There is nothing easier to prepare than pasta, except for maybe, toasts, or oatmeal…. Hmmmmm, oatmeal! I haven’t had that in so long, a nice, warm bowl of oatmeal, with diced apples and cinnamon. I get the feeling I will be having one pretty soon, though. But enough about oatmeal, this post is about… View Post
Smoked Salmon on Multigrain Bagel Today is my day off! No work-out, no cooking! This is what I had for supper, although it was a platter before it became the sandwich (well, what’s left of it…) that you see above. I can’t believe I actually got up in the middle of supper to grab my camera and snap away at… View Post
Well, I guess you must’ve figured out by now that I am really into Asian food. I take a lot of inspiration in their cuisine. I like how they use lots of fresh vegetables and fruits in their cooking. However, I find that their meals sometimes tend to be heavy on sauce, so I like going for lighter versions of… View Post
VEGETABLE MOUSSAKA OK, so I tried another recipe from my new Vegetarian Bible. That one was a little more extensive than what I usually make, for I tend to cook things that are real quick and easy, but this one was very well worth it! Especially after having spent most of the day outside, freezing my butt off to install… View Post

Chocolate Cranberry and Almond Protein Cookies My second experimentation of the day was cookies. I found this recipe on the Net last week and decided to give it a try (I tweaked it a little, though…). There were no directions, save for “mix everything together”. Well, after I did that, I was left with some sort of a soupy mixture,… View Post
Spinach, Cottage Cheese and Walnuts Savory Muffin Still experimenting with my protein bar replacement; this week-end, I decided to do things a little differently. I started with a savory muffin, for a change. Spinach, cottage cheese and walnuts. I am fairly happy with the results, their taste is really great. However, they still need a little help aesthetic wise. Not… View Post
