Sausage Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Sometimes the best-tasting dishes end up being thrown together with what you have on hand or from ingredients needing to be used up in the fridge. I had bought a spaghetti squash on sale and had a purpose for it a few weeks ago that never transpired. The other day I decided to take some sausage I … Continue reading Sausage Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Olive and Herbes de Provence Bread

Is there anything better than fresh bread coming out of the oven? The whole experience is worth the effort: the yeasty scent that fills the house, the texture of the bread dough as you knead it, the satisfaction of making something yourself from scratch, the anticipation building as it bakes in the oven, and finally … Continue reading Olive and Herbes de Provence Bread

Food Prep for Success – Going Beyond Chopping

I have a confession to make: I love food. I love eating it, I love cooking and baking, I love making healthy choices, I love planning out what I am going to make, and I love being adventurous and trying new things. I even love to prep....sometimes....if there is time. Okay, the difference between the … Continue reading Food Prep for Success – Going Beyond Chopping

Enchilada Chicken Lasagna

What do you do when you've got a fridge/pantry/freezer full of food, but not sure what to make? You start throwing things together and see what comes out of it! They do say, necessity is the mother of invention...  While I know I wasn't the first one to come up with the concept of fusing the … Continue reading Enchilada Chicken Lasagna

How To Have A Maritime Christmas

I've been thinking lately how everyone celebrates this time of year a little differently:  some celebrate, some do not, some have traditions set in stone, while other things might change things up from year to year, and some traditions vary from place to place.  So I thought I would share a glimpse of what Christmas looks … Continue reading How To Have A Maritime Christmas

A Little (or a lot of) Thanksgiving Stuffing

There seems to be a great debate on whether it is called Dressing or Stuffing depending on where one lives. I grew up familiar with both terms and I'm not too concerned as to what people call it, as long as I get my fair share of it. 🙂 It is my favourite part of a … Continue reading A Little (or a lot of) Thanksgiving Stuffing

School Days and School Bread

The heralding of September always brings to mind the starting of school. It is a new beginning full of potential for good intentions. A clean slate, if you will. 😉 The chaos of summer falls away for the comfortable routine where order reigns. It might not last long, but it always starts out good. Traditional school … Continue reading School Days and School Bread

A Cannoli Kind Of Day

While visiting the United States I came across a dairy-free ricotta cheese made by Tofutti.  I was quite excited to find a dairy-free substitute and my mind started going in all kinds of directions as to what sort of treat to make with this.  I was a little hesitant about what it might taste like as … Continue reading A Cannoli Kind Of Day

Product Review – Chao Dairy-free Cheese, Tomato and Cayenne flavour

One of the most difficult things to substitute when living dairy-free is cheese. It is hard to find something that tastes good, melts, and gives you all those feel-good memories from your childhood. I've tried a few different brands from the grocery store and most have simply been a waste of money. I'll eat most … Continue reading Product Review – Chao Dairy-free Cheese, Tomato and Cayenne flavour

Saucy Reuben Breakfast Sandwich

This morning for breakfast I was in the mood for something special (since it IS almost Christmas) and yet different. I was thinking Eggs Benedict would be nice, but I wasn't prepared for that (no bacon thawed, and I would have to find a recipe for dairy-free hollandaise sauce...I didn't really want to go that … Continue reading Saucy Reuben Breakfast Sandwich
