Kale Rainbow Salad

Kale Rainbow Salad

Alright! Are you guys ready to take your salad game up a notch??  This Kale Rainbow Salad came about one day when I decided to experiment a little and combine different fruits that I love.  One flash of inspiration, a little bit of tinkering, and voila, a salad was born!  It’s definitely been a hit, and has become my ‘go-to’ salad for dinner parties and potlucks (somehow I’m always the one they put in charge of bringing the salad... go figure!).  I’ve been asked for the recipe every single time I’ve made it, so I definitely think I’m onto something here!

"Kid Approved" Salmon Patties

"Kid Approved" Salmon Patties

I’ll admit it, I’ve got it pretty good when it comes to my kids being good eaters. They’re not super picky (in fact, they're pretty adventurous), they eat a wide range of veggies and both of them could literally eat fruit all day! They also enjoy a lot of the healthy meals I cook for them… with one exception... I've found it a bit of a challenge to get them to eat and love fish.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, they’ll gobble down fish & chips and they’ll even try a small piece of salmon now and then, but a number of my fish meals have been greeted by some impossibly huge eye-rolls.  ;)

Skin Resolutions

Skin Resolutions

Sure I know, resolutions may be cliche, but let’s face it, they can also be incredibly helpful. Many of us make resolutions to work out more or eat healthier, and those are definitely important, but I’ve got a resolution that I’m sure you’ll have little trouble getting behind.  Here it is.  In 2017 I want to take better care of my body and pamper it more. Not only is this a resolution that’s fun & easy to keep, it also makes a ton of sense. I’m so incredibly grateful to my body for all that it does for me, so I also want to make sure that I take the best possible care of it, starting with my skin. In the past few years as my skin, umm, ‘matures’, I’ve noticed that it isn’t quite as resilient as it used to be, and it’s not uncommon to have dry patches, a few spots here and there and the early sign of some wrinkles as we get older.

Citrus Curry Lentil Soup

Citrus Curry Lentil Soup

It’s really hard to not fall in love with Morocco. From the intoxicating sights, sounds and smells of the bustling souks, the beautiful decor and amazing textiles (I literally wanted to cram every rug back in my suitcase to take home with me!) to the warm hospitality of the people, it really feels like you’ve been transported to a completely different world.  As we travelled the country exploring the ancient cities, epic mountain ranges and sweeping deserts, one constant was the delicious, rich and hearty foods and I especially fell in love with their lentil soups.

Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Fall is in full swing and I’ve got soup on my mind. This roasted Butternut Squash and Pear Soup is a perfect mix of full rich flavour with a little bit of sweet. I’ve made it a few times this season already and it hits the spot each and every time.  It’s also a win with Zee and the kids like to dunk their grill cheese sandwiches in it;)
