Guinness & Mushroom Stew With Herbed Soda Bread Dumplings

Mar 17, 2019

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Rather than drinking green beer to celebrate let's eat some good food!

This recipe is easy to make for Sunday dinner and it's a perfect example where you can have the plants shine and use the meat as an enhancement. The star in this dish is definitely the mushrooms. I use an assortment of what I picked up at the Farmers Market and it's worth it to get a mix so you...

Your Spring Pantry Capsule

Mar 15, 2019

Spring is here! Well almost anyways. I’m so excited to hear the birds chirping in the mornings, longer days and don’t even get me started on all the fresh produce that’s coming to the Farmer’s Market. And because the change of season is always a good time to de clutter and reset in the kitchen I thought it’d be fun to talk about pantry staples for Spring. If...

You know my philosophy - homemade always tastes better than the boxed version (plus it’s instantly better for you) and it really doesn’t take any longer, I promise!

The best part is you can adjust it to your own taste. A few easy tricks I use to make the most...

Cooking Can Change the World.

 

I know this is a bold statement, but I believe it to be true right down to pinky toes. 

 

If you’ve been around here for a while you know that I am super passionate about teaching people the power of good food and if I’m honest when I started my business a lot of it was about giving people meal plans and all kinds of structure on how to...

Jan 11, 2019

Is one of your intentions for the New Year to get in the kitchen but you feel like you can't even boil an egg? And the few times you try you find you fall back to your go to frozen meals, pasta or the Chinese take out on speed dial?

Beef Enchiladas

Dec 19, 2018

Tacos get all the attention these days. And believe me I could eat tacos everyday but if you're looking for a different option, one that you can make ahead and serve a crowd without a ton of effort, enchiladas are the way to go.

These are perfect for an impromptu dinner party. Make them the day before, and just pop them in the oven on the day of, add a salad and you're good to go! It's also a...

Thai Curry Chicken Soup

Nov 16, 2018

Thai flavours are one of my favourite things to make. It's the perfect mix of sour, sweet, salt and spice. It's the perfect thing to warm you up on a cold day - high vibe food as I like to say. 

And even better when it's super simple to make! 

You can have this soup put together in no time and even easier if you throw it in the crockpot (see the notes at the bottom). 

This soup...

Coconut Chocolate Granola

Who else loves chocolate for breakfast?
Did a little experimenting with this coconut chocolate combo because which was inspired by a granola we packed on a camping trip in the summer.
Store bought granola can be tricky because even though it claims all the goodness there’s often more sugar and sometimes lots of unpronounceables depending on the brand. The easy solution is to make it at...

Especially if you make individual pies which I've noted at the bottom. This way you can freeze them and pull out whenever you...

African Peanut Stew

Sep 11, 2018

It's that time of year again. Fall is just around the corner which means cozy socks and warm, comforting soups and stews. There's something about having great smelling food coming from the kitchen. It always makes me feel good. Now just because we're talking slow cooking doesn't mean it has to take alot of effort. Totally the opposite actually. Low and slow means you let the heat do the work...
