Go-to stir fry

For me right now, simple = the best, and the only choice for family meals.  With no time to find inspiration, this is what I threw in the wok based on what I had on hand – broccoli, peppers, carrots (julienned, thanks to my lovely cooking course! and my sous-chef :)) garlic, ginger and red […]

Massaged Kale Salad

Have you ever tried to eat raw kale?  The taste is a little bit bitter, the texture is chewy – not the most pleasant experience.  Enter a technique I just discovered (Thanks Rouxbe Plant Based Cooking Course!) — “Massage Your Kale.”  You can do it with a plain ripe avocado, or with the juice of […]

Thai-style Butternut Squash Soup

This might be one of the best soups I’ve ever made.  And it was ridiculously easy to make!  Delicious, easy, good for you = sold.  Butternut squash is in season right now, so I stock up at the market weekly and try to make something new.  Last week it was a curry/ rice dish… this […]

Inspiring Provencal Lentils & Vegetable Tian

Provence!  The gorgeous weather, the bustling markets, the beautiful FOOD!  Crack open a(nother) bottle of Rose and you’re so relaxed, you’re practically asleep.  You open your eyes for a second and wonder where your kids have gone, only to find them running around playfully (or, poking each other’s eye’s out, whichever), and go back to […]

Kids Mixed Plate Surprise

This one was a surprise because I really didn’t know what it was going to be (or if it would get eaten) until it was done!  Got lucky, I think…  There was no real meal plan/ idea for the kids tonight, and no time to cook a big meal, so I needed to improvise.  I […]
