As I type this, (8:00 am in the morning) the temperature out side is 30 degrees Celsius/about 86 degrees Fahrenheit. It will only get hotter by 4:00 pm. In my neck of the woods that is hot, and it is not due to let up any time soon!
On a positive note, we have had the [...]
This might be my new favorite salad….so good! We have a deli downtown that makes a very good Thai Broccoli Salad, which I will often have for lunch when I am at work. One day, I decided to ask them for the recipe…thinking they probably would not give it to me, however, it never hurts [...]
This past week has been very busy for me at work. Usually I will pack a lunch with me, which I did this particular day. I ended up working an extra 3 hours this day which I had not anticipated, so I stopped by a deli to buy a vegetable salad. Dang….it was awful. Big [...]
Mercy…this was heaven on a plate. Seriously, seriously supreme deliciousness happening here.

In my world this is a thing of true beauty. Then this kind lady also [...]
Oh how I live for summer! This is such a simple, beautiful, and tasty salad to have during the summer. Using yellow and red tomatoes gives this salad such vibrant color. The key to this salad is to marinate for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator, then remove from the fridge to come to [...]
We are in love with this new Garlic Scape Pesto Recipe. I can’t wait to get back to the Farmer’s Market to get more of these delicious garlic scapes. It is a short window, so I am hoping there will still be some available. First we had the Marinated Chicken dinner with this Pesto served [...]
This recipe came about as a result of having leftovers. I can’t bear to throw away food. There were two egg yolks in the fridge, leftover Chimichurri Sauce, a lowly quarter of a cabbage – all needing to be used up. I always said I would never make homemade Mayonnaise or Aioli, because I always [...]
This side dish was delectable…if you love Greek Salad this is for you. I have never done a post on Greek Salad before, firstly, because I don’t make the traditional Greek Salad, and secondly, it is too simple to post. This past week, we have been using up the last of the garden tomatoes, and [...]
I found this delicious sprouted organic bean mix at Costco the other day, and was pleasantly surprised. They are delicious – so versatile too. These would be lovely in soups, or stews….I am thinking up new recipes as I write this! It makes me really happy to see more and more organic, healthy foods available [...]
The first time I made homemade Ranch dressing, it was good, but I still felt the need to tweek the recipe. What a lovely dressing this turned out to be! Most recipes call for buttermilk, I used Kefir milk and it turned out great.
1 Tblsp. finely diced shallot
1 finely minced garlic clove
2 Tblsp. finely chopped [...]
