You can never get enough of this killer combo of ingredients!!
It’s been a looong day, kind of one of the longest!
We all need a little Nutty in our life right??!?
Lets just say this recipe and my life lately are both the nut in Nutty!
These Little Patties are the Apple of my Eye!!
Who doesn’t love sausage? Not me that’s for sure! If I had to chose one thing that I secretly could eat with wild abandon it would be fabulous tasting sausages. But come on, let’s be honest most of it really isn’t that great for you!!
So of course the mission was set…. make a healthy low fat sausage that the fam and I could eat for breakfast!
A Tomato Twist!
When summer starts to feel like it’s around the corner, my mind always goes to Spring and Summer produce… especially tomatoes!! Come on people….is there really anything better than the taste of a locally farmed summer tomato?? The other thing that motivated this dish was a new book I’ve been reading… this Donna Hay cookbook. Her books always look so vibrant and healthy! This in fact isn’t in her book but I feel it could be! 🙂
Those are some Sweet Peas you got!!
One of our first bounties in the Spring are Sweet Peas! I love the bright green colour of them and the giant pods full of beautiful round goodness. I know they say the little ones are the sweetest but I always get a thrill when these giant big fat peas reveal themselves. To me the texture and flavour of these are the best!!
The Irresistible Flavours of Spring!!
It’s March break here in Ontario and being a big ski family, for us that usually means a week at the cottage skiing! There really isn’t anything better than those Spring ski days. We wait all year for them. Warm, sunny days that make us feel closer to nature and happy to the core. We call them Blue Bird Days! Well, this year it’s warm alright, so warm that it’s raining and the snow has pretty well vanished. Which leaves us more excited for Easter! It’s early this year which could have meant a very wintery looking Spring holiday but luckily it looks like my favorite holiday will be as I imagined, full of colour and the hopeful anticipation of summer to come!
I’m Officially ADDICTED to this Soup!!!!
So a few weeks ago I decided it was time to get my rear in gear and lose a few pounds that had snuck up on me over the winter. Like most of us, I wanted a quick fix! My mind went straight to that cabbage soup diet from when I was young.
No need to be Chili with this little number around!!
What a crazy winter we’re having in Toronto this year. Can anyone say extremes! One week it’s 15 degrees above zero and the next it’s 15 below. Maybe that’s why everyone I talk to is sick!! Last week that was me too!!
Always Look on the Sunny Side of Life!!
The sun is shining today and that made me want to cook sunny side up eggs! Ok so it’s minus 20, BUT SUNNY…come on that’s gotta count for something!
I’m feeling a Little Flushed!!
The holidays have come and gone AGAIN! What a whirlwind they were too. I really expected lazy days with no real plan and lots of family time. Well some of that happened but not nearly enough. Slightly later sleep ins but otherwise I was pretty darn busy!
