Cauliflower, Kale & Red Lentil Coconut Curry

Hello everyone!  How’s your week going so far?  Did you make it through Monday without totally falling asleep in the middle of the day?  Daylight savings time is great ’cause the days are longer, but I really missed that freaking hour.  Girl got to have her sleep, feel me?

Luckily we have copious amounts of coffee in our household.  And this past weekend hubby and I  got a new kitchen toy.  Yay!  We bought a Nespresso coffee machine.  Hubby had one at work and raved about it; it went on sale for like $80 bucks off so we decided to pick one up and so happy we did.  If you love coffee like hubby & I do, then you’d love this machine.  You’ve probably seen all those commercials with George Clooney and Danny DeVito going around making a big deal about the coffee that this machine makes.  I know, I know, like ‘what the heck, it’s only coffee; what’s the big deal, right?’ I dunno, they must infuse some kinda magic Continue reading

Lemony Arugula Pesto

Lemony Arugula Pesto

I don’t know about you, but I love pesto AND I love arugula.  Arugula is so fresh and peppery and its flavour profile is so unique.  The thing is, though, that I find that the life of arugula is not very long, especially when we buy one of those huge Costco tubs.  Even if I cover the leaves with some brown kraft paper to absorb excess moisture, it’s freshness disappears faster than Continue reading

Seafood Dip

Seafood Dip

This Seafood Dip is super super easy!  I’ve made this dip so many times before and it is always a winner, plus it takes literally minutes to assemble.  There is no cooking required and the taste is awesome.  You can certainly lighten up this dip by using light cream cheese and light mayo, or lighten it even further with Greek yogurt instead of the mayo.

Chard, Sun-Dried Tomato & Artichoke Dip

ChardSundriedTomatoArtichokeDip

I love buying local produce!  On a recent trip to a market, I picked up a whole bunch of vegetables, including some wonderful Swiss Chard.  Over the past year or so, I have really increased my use of/eating of greens – Chard, Kale, Spinach, all of that good stuff.  I really enjoy them now, plus they are so good for you!

I remember when I was a kid and we would have Sunday Dinner, affectionately know as ‘cooked dinner’ in Newfoundland.  Like you would have it any other way, right?  The pressure cooker would be used to cook  salt beef and then veg would be cooked on the side in the salt beef broth  – potatoes, turnip, carrot, parsnip & greens. The broth would infuse the veg with delicious salty goodness. Oh, what flavours!   Everything would be piled up on the plate, maybe with some gravy or some mustard pickles and beets.  One thing, though, I would not eat. You guessed it – greens!  I would secretly try to stick them under my plate.  Oh, man, I could not stand  them.  I would suffer to get those down.  No problem now!

Lemony Sundried Tomato and Pistachio Hummus

Tasty & healthy, this Lemony Sundried Tomato and Pistachio Hummus is perfect with corn chips or as a spread on a sandwich or wrap.  For me, the lemon zest is the icing on the cake.  The lemony flavour brings this hummus together.  Obviously, this is delish right away, but even better the next day – if you can wait that long 🙂  You’ll never buy pre-made hummus again!
