Lemon Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Breakfast

No need for an explanation here.  Fluffy buttermilk pancakes infused with lemon, a touch of vanilla, and studded with juicy blueberries.  Is there any better way to start a Sunday morning? I think not!

Spring Vegan Salads

Salads, Vegan

I don’t usually post two days in a row, but I’ve had a busy week already in the kitchen and couldn’t wait to share these recipes: I LOVE a good salad! (Charlie even listed it as my favourite food on my Mother’s Day card, he knows me well). I remember the first time that I went to France and ordered … View The Post

Lime Capellini with Seared Scallops

Main Dishes, Sides

I was thrilled to do a cooking demo at the Okanagan Eats Food Show today, and decided to make this pasta for the crowd.  It was hard to settle on what to make but I chose this dish as it embraces a lot of what I ‘stand’ for: moderation and balance (among other things).

Breakfast, Gluten-Free

Quiche is one of those things that I make for special occasions, and my Quiche Lorraine recipe is always a hit.  I wanted to make a more ‘springy’ version without the crust to lighten it up a bit more (I use lighter cream and far less bacon than a traditional version does as well).  Of course make sure that your … View The Post

Vegan Shepherd’s Pie (gluten-free, vegan)

Gluten-Free, Main Dishes, Vegan

Now that we’re edging into some warmer weather, thoughts of cable knit sweaters, warm cups of tea and cozy dishes like Shepherd’s Pie are soon to become a distant memory.  But before you pack up your fluffy slippers for the year (I can’t be the only one who owns a pair of these amazingly comfy and oh-so-unattractive footwear), pull out your … View The Post
