Pesto Chicken Salad with Tzatziki

Other than the Packed Lunch Series, I have not posted any salads. As a “health[ier] food blog”, that is a tragedy.  My only excuse is that I throw together so many salads, that I rarely consider posting them. For this salad, the pesto chicken and the tzatziki sauce stand out.  I made chicken gyros the… Continue reading Pesto Chicken Salad with Tzatziki

Vegetable Pasta with Turkey Kielbasa

Simple and satisfying. That is the perfect explanation for this dish.  Truly, it could be even simpler, because the pasta in this dish is superfluous.  Savory sausage, juicy brussel sprouts, crunchy carrots, soft beans…it really is enough.  However, if you love pasta, you can add it if you must. The only other thing I would… Continue reading Vegetable Pasta with Turkey Kielbasa

Homemade Garlic-Dill Wheat Crackers

Remember last time? Last time I made Rosemary Wheat Crackers.  They came out more like Rosemary Wheat Pillows. This time I was determined to do better.  Still using this recipe as the basis, I added a generous sprinkling of dill and garlic powder for flavour.  I rolled the dough out much thinner this time. The… Continue reading Homemade Garlic-Dill Wheat Crackers

Recipe in Progress: Homemade Rosemary Wheat Crackers

Why is it so exciting to make everyday items from scratch? I’m talking about things that people buy at the store without even thinking about it.  Bread.  Crackers.  Cereal and granola.  Hummus.  Salad dressing.  My guess is that people are so used to buying these items that they do not think about or maybe even… Continue reading Recipe in Progress: Homemade Rosemary Wheat Crackers

Sesame Edamame Salad {Packed Lunch Edition}

My favourite colour is red cabbage. Ok, it could have a prettier name, but I do not think it could have a prettier appearance.  I have to confess that I took more pictures of the red cabbage than I did of my salad, while photographing this recipe.  My inexperience and lack of photographic knowledge and… Continue reading Sesame Edamame Salad {Packed Lunch Edition}

Healthy Carrot Spice Muffins

I have been excited about this recipe for awhile. I love the moisture, and how the oil and butter are not missed at all.  I love the cinnamon and ginger.  I love the amount of carrot.  I love the total lack of raisins.  I love the walnuts. What took me so long to post this… Continue reading Healthy Carrot Spice Muffins

Recipe in Progress: Peach Souffle with Wild Raspberries

The idea of this recipe is perfect. After making lovely banana souffles, peach sounded like another great idea.  However, the result was not perfect.  I believe I know what changes I need to make for next time. Peel the peach.  I know, I know, most people probably would have done this in the first place,… Continue reading Recipe in Progress: Peach Souffle with Wild Raspberries
