Edamame & Miso Dip

Last time we talked, life was very hectic to say the least. While I can’t say that everything is back to normal, some things are behind us and I’m grateful for that. Jason and I moved into a new apartment, nearly double the size of our previous place. In the dead of winter, no less. …

Swiss Chard Wraps with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Daylight saving time began yesterday and that’s a reason to celebrate, don’t you agree? Working to this soundtrack, I can almost feel the Spring breeze on my skin and nature coming alive again. I’m grateful for every minute of additional daylight. If you’re like me, you’re craving the return of fresh salads at this time …

Oven-Baked Rutabaga Fries with Honey-Mustard Sauce

The Olympics ended yesterday. Did you watch? I’m always amazed at the performance and determination of these athletes. Years and years of hard training for one quick, “make or break” moment. You have to be made of steel to handle that kind of pressure. Gymnastics was a major part of my life for over 10 …

Avocado-Feta Dip with Spicy Pepitas

I hate goodbyes – they make me nervous. At parties, for example, I never know if I’m doing it right. Am I supposed to say goodbye to every person individually? If I do, what about the people I don’t know and didn’t get the chance to talk to? A global goodbye, you might suggest? Well, that’s …

Hummus with Cilantro Oil & Toasted Pine Nuts

I am curious. I’ve always been curious. In high school, my friends used to call me Marie-Veut-Savoir (Marie-Wants-to-Know). There are so many interesting things to learn about, yet only a finite amount of time on this planet. How’s one to choose? On the other hand, maybe some things are better left unknown. I used to …

Veggie Pâté

So I might have lied to you. Well… not so much lying as withholding some truth. A few weeks ago, I told you that I don’t own a food processor. That was not entirely true. See, I have a mini food processor, but it’s so small that I barely use it. It’s one of the …

Roasted Portobello Mushroom Dip

I was raised vegetarian. Needless to say, I love vegetables. I don’t care too much for fennel and its licorice taste but other than that, veggies and I share a lifelong love story. That’s right. They love me, too. Mushrooms are without a doubt one of my favourite vegetables. I love how their taste and …

Low Sugar Raspberry Jam & Raspberry-Peach Jam

Since I had a pleasant experience with my first canning project, I decided to attempt making jam. Low-sugar jam, that is. I’m always horrified when I read jam recipes that call for 7 cups of sugar. I realize that some fruit can be rather tart au naturel, but for those of us who can’t conceive …
