Zucchini, Basil, Almond Pad Thai

Friday Night date night and I decided to surprise Colin with Thai food… I had been craving Thai for awhile BUT… since we’re going to be going on a juice cleanse shortly I’ve been trying to simplify the diet and start a pre-cleanse regiment.  That means no flour, no sugar (althoughRead More

Sri Lankan Dhal Curry

Autumn is my favourite time of year.  I love the colours  – burnt orange, rusty red, chocolate brown and deep purples.  Sweaters, colourful scarves, tall boots, long jackets, chai tea, good books read under warm blankets… Funny that one of my most favourite autumn recipe actually comes from Sri LankaRead More

Green Curry Coconut Soup

This paired with the Pad Thai Recipe is delicious! It’s light and frothy and has enough heat to keep you warm in the cool winter months.  This is one of the few winters in the last 7 years that I have not spent working in Sri Lanka… I miss my infusion ofRead More

Vegan Gluten Free Pizza

You know that game when you ask someone if they had one food to pick to have forever if they were stranded on a deserted island? Well pizza has always been my choice. I just naturally assume that there will be plenty of mangoes and coconuts too!  I have finallyRead More

Roasted Root Vegetables

Gotta love this time of year when root vegetables are ready to been pulled. I love the medley of flavours that remind me that Autumn is here again. Turnips, parsnips, sweet potatoes, yams, beets, carrots – you get the idea. This recipe is great as a side or a feature inRead More

Pumpkin Seed Pesto

Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc which is one of the nutrients responsible for healing, metabolism regulating and blood sugar stabilization.  I’m not a big fan of nuts but I do like seeds.  Toasted pumpkin seeds have a more subtle flavour than when they are raw – but raw pumpkin seedsRead More

Thyme Infused Mushroom Gravy

This Thyme Infused Mushroom Gravy stands on it’s own. It’s not about trying to fool carnivores it’s about lovingly splashing a touch of red wine at the mushrooms as they simmer with thyme.  Will taste delightful over Roasted Root Vegetables Ingredients 4 cups vegetable broth (low-sodium from Pacifico is great) 1 cupRead More

Sage Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts are a staple in most family’s Thanksgiving feast.  As a child I turned up my nose at them at the table only to seem ‘cool’ to my two older brothers.  They would grumble about the ‘no-thank-you’ portion that my mom insisted that they haveSecretly I’ve always had aRead More
