Raw Cauliflower Salad

Raw Cauliflower “Detox” Salad

So there was this one night last week when I got a bit caught off guard and didn’t have any plan for supper. Or rather, I had one, but didn’t feel like eating what was on the menu. Alright, I admit… I was gonna have leftovers, but I was NOT interested. Sometimes, eating the same […]

Fall Harvest Salad

Fall Harvest Salad

This is a variation on a salad that my ex used to make a lot at this time of year. I’m really glad that he introduced me to that beautiful salad, because, frankly, it would’ve never occurred to me to cook all those veggies, dress them up and let them cool completely before eating them. […]

Sweet Potato Oven Baked Frittata

I know, I know, this was not part of my menu plan of the week. But I didn’t expect to be cooking for 5 in the middle of the week and on real short notice. I had to think fast and make do with what I had on hand! Frittatas are always a good alternative […]

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 […]

Soba Noodle Soup

I finally went and bought some Soba noodles. I ended up spending $37. I told you there was no way I could set foot in that Asian market without spending tons of money. To my defense, I had the best of intentions this time. I didn’t even grab a cart when I got in. I […]

Grilled Vegetables Panini

I’d been in the mood for a good grilled vegetable sandwich for a little while now. You know, the kind of sandwich that is loaded with all sorts of veggies that you’ve thrown on a hot BBQ grill after brushing them with a little bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, fresh basil, thyme, garlic. You […]

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 […]

Teriyaki Experience – Home Made Version

This has got to be my favorite food to eat when spending a day at the mall. So simple, so quick, so full of flavor, so affordable and so very healthy (when you go easy on the teriyaki sauce, that is!). I recently decided to try my hand at duplicating the “experience” at home. I […]

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 […]

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 […]


Rice in the making

Enoki mushrooms and other fresh vegetables (ok, ok, the baby corns aren’t fresh, I admit, but they’re hard to come across in the fresh form, you know…) All ready to go into that fried (without the fried part) rice.
