After having spent the day out shopping, I was glad that what was on my list for tonight was a quick and easy meal. My mom ended up staying the night yesterday, so she came shopping with us and stayed for supper again. I wish she could stay one more night and do the Christmas cooking with me tomorrow, the… View Post
Tonight was another pizza night. Again, I had my mom over for supper and my son, his girlfriend and my daughter. Believe it or not, we each had a different pizza! Mine was a little different, it was more like a salad on a crust, but I really liked it. I started by brushing the dough with a little bit… View Post
While eating my oatmeal last week, I thought I should try cooking my usual cereal. I mean, since I like it so much I am reluctant to skip days, but I also rediscovered oatmeal and remembered just how good it was, I thought maybe I could kill two birds with one stone and cook my cereal to turn them into… View Post
Not sure this qualifies as “clean”, but flap is by far my favorite cut of beef and I just as to have it every now and then. My second favorite would be a good rib steak. I refrain from eating any of them too often as their fat content is quite high. But hey, I have officially entered Holiday mode… View Post
Breakfast for supper! I like that! So simple, quick and easy. A buckwheat pancake, stuffed with spinach and cottage cheese, topped with an egg, served with a bowl of home made porkless beans! OK, the beans are kinda loaded with molasses, i.e. sugar, so not THAT healthy, but still, not that bad either.All in all, a good vegetarian meal.
Can’t say I’m too happy with this picture. I find Quesadillas are very hard to make it so they look nice.They just look so boring just lying there in the plate. I’ll definitely have to work on that because it’s too bad, really. I think they are such a great dish! So very easy to prepare, I’m not even going… View Post
Join the 2 together, and this is what you get! Tonight, I made a vegetarian couscous and decided to serve it in half Bell Peppers. I had a lot of fun cooking and taking pictures. I’ll share some of those with you for now, and retrace the recipe tomorrow. For now, it’s time for my post workout snack! The kids… View Post
This is what was for supper tonight. Chickpeas made into a patty, served in a half pita with tahini/yogurt sauce, sweet potato french fries and brussel sprouts. I really really enjoyed this, but I don’t think the kids were big fans. My daughter thought it was OK, but she wouldn’t have this every week. My son didn’t even bother to comment…. View Post
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
