Fritters with Haskal Berry Sauce

October 30, 2019

Once autumn descends on our little town it puts me in the mood to fry things and one of the easiest things in this category is fritters. But there is a story to go with the recipe. Our local co-op One Big Table issued a challenge to submit recipes using two or more ingredients from the store. OBT is unique co-op dedicated to offering local produce and artisanal products from the Okanagan and surrounding area... View Article

Roasted Carnival squash with crispy lentils and cashew cream

October 29, 2019

    So I am trying to keep up with my instagram posts and post them on the blog with a recipe at the same time. This can be a problem as I often have more than one Instagram post a day. I’ll have to figure out a happy balance but the problem is the followers on Instagram are asking for the recipes and I feel that I need to provide. We’ll see how it... View Article

Cranberry orange cinnamon cakes

October 29, 2019

  So I had leftover cranberry sauce from Canadian thanksgiving and thought I’d make little cakes with some of it. Rather than bake them in muffin tins I scooped the batter into these little autumn inspired mini cake pans and they turned out rather cute. The flavour is tangy with the orange juice and cranberry sauce, and the cakes are light and airy. When I removed them from the tins the underside was a little... View Article

Zucchini fritters with spiced yogurt

October 28, 2019

The minute it feels like fall I feel like frying things. Fritters are usually what I turn to and these zucchini fritters with a few variations make an appearance in my kitchen this time of year. The key to making fritters is to drain the vegetables of any residual moisture by squeezing the water out of them using a towel or your hands. It’s best to let the shredded sit for a while, lightly salted... View Article

Lemon cake with yogurt, thyme and lemon glaze

October 24, 2019

  Funny how the season dictates not only the ingredients we cook with but also the type of cooking we do. I don’t tend to bake too much in the summer but comes autumn and I am happy to be in the kitchen baking all kinds of things. Since it’s only the two of us at home on a regular basis I don’t bake a lot of big, rich cakes as we’ll never get through... View Article

Lasagna with Ricotta, Mushrooms and Marinated Artichokes

October 18, 2019

  I used to cook large quantities of everything for years but lately I have been scaling things down because first, there is only the two of us at home, and second, I cook so much every day so I don’t really want leftovers. This lasagna is a case in point. I made small recipe, enough for 4 servings, something we can go through quickly and move on to other culinary adventures. I made this... View Article

Sweet Potatoes and black beans with Chili Lime Dressing

October 17, 2019

    My kind of salad, with sweet potatoes, black beans, pomegranate seeds and chopped pistachios combined for a  spectrum of textures and flavours. I make this salad all year round and change it a little with every season. In the fall I add pomegranates or even firm, ripe pears for a touch of fruity flavour. In the summer I add fresh corn, roasted on the grill and scraped off the cob into a waiting... View Article

Matcha soaked steel cut oats

October 6, 2019

      For me breakfast is cereal but sometimes I like to switch things around, especially in the summer when a hot cereal may seem heavy. On those occasions I would soak oats overnight in plant based milk, orange juice or apple juice, and have it for breakfast cold with topping of seasonal fruits. This time I soaked the oats in cashew milk and decided to add a little matcha for colour, flavour and... View Article

Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches

September 28, 2019

  I recently bought a Breville ice cream maker and have been having fun experimenting with a few flavours and ingredient. The first one i made was salted caramel ice  cream, one of my favourite flavours, the second was this chocolate ice cream to be sandwiched between two soft chocolate cookies. If you don’t want to make the ice cream just use any store bought ice cream and use it instead. the cookies making the... View Article
