They’ve brought me health, happiness (who doesn’t love a GOOD kitchen party?!), and have conquered some…

Roasted Bruschetta Orzo

July has welcomed regular thunder showers! Therefore opportune moments to fit in some BBQ time are well treasured. This humidity though – apparently I’m ‘glowing’ and rocking some serious beach hair…in Northern B.C.!? Ok, so I love bruschetta – especially the ‘garlicky slurry’ my dad adds to his recipe. Watch out though, major dragon breath…

Thai Rice Bowl

Welcoming SUMMER like…! The temps have dropped for June (as usual), and I’ve been craving foods to warm my core.

Lemony Basmati Rice + Cumin Soup

Just one of those days soup is tasting REAL good!…brrr. This soup was inspired by one that my sister use to make except with potatoes. Seeing as we haven’t made it in years, and I don’t actually have a recipe for it – I forged this Lemony Basmati Rice + Cumin Soup from my memory…

Topped off with a couple Crispy Tempeh MeatBalls + some walnut parm, and you’re left…

Grilled Veg Sammie

Grilled (fully loaded) Veg Sammie on homemade ciabatta. The only complaint I received about this sandwich…it’s a little too BIG. Ok, I can live with that. Packed with caramelized onions, roasted eggplant, red pepper, portobello mushrooms, zucchini, and house feta – there’s definitely no lack of flavour here! That ciabatta grilled up perfectly soaking up…

Cabin Cobb Salad

Breakfast, lunch, dinner – this salad can pretty well fit in ANYWHERE. Cabin Cobb Salad. I tacked on ‘cabin’ simply because I eat a few variations of this salad, and brekkie at the cabin is usually (scrambled tofu) eggs + smart bacon. Thanks LightLife! This salad is always a favourite as it sports ALL of…
