Butternut Squash Lasagne

We are constantly feeding a crowd at our house, and one-pan dishes that we can make ahead like lasagne are life-savers for entertaining!   Nature’s Fare Market had the most gorgeous squashes on display the other week, and the butternut squash were calling my name.  I usually make soup with the squash, but I wanted to make something a little less … View The Post

Rainbow Roasted Veggie Sandwich

Happy National Sandwich Day!!!  Sandwiches have become a bit of a staple in our house since having a baby: they are the ULTIMATE grab and go food (and anything that I can eat with one hand these days is pretty much perfect).

Razor Clam Lemon Capellini

Never heard of razor clams?  Neither had I prior to ordering them through Haida Wild.  And am I ever happy I did! In truth, I didn’t grow up with a lot of seafood.  After all, I spent the first part of my life in northern Alberta.  Beyond locally caught walleye fish, there wasn’t a lot of fresh seafood to go around.

Cedar Plank Salmon Burgers

Typically speaking, by the time August wraps up I’m completely over burgers of any kind. That was until we made these Cedar Plank Salmon Burgers. Where have these been all of my life? Now, I’ve had salmon burgers before, but they all pale in comparison next to these (if I may be so bold).

Tomato Goat Cheese Tart

I’ve been eyeing up tomato tarts on Pinterest for some time now.  But I will admit, the thought of making my own pastry is just too much for this busy mom to handle some days, especially something as delicate as puff pastry.  I’ve reached the conclusion that life is simply too short for somethings; like making my own puff pastry!

Portabella Freekeh Veggie Burgers

I strongly debated whether or not to include the ingredient ‘freekeh’ in the title of this post.  It’s not exactly a mainstream ingredient, and I’m embarrassed to say that I actually just learned how to pronounce it, let alone cook with it!  I decided to throw caution to the wind and throw it in there.  What a rebel.
