Arugula Beet Salad

My go to lunch is fast, easy and satisfying… Arugula, beets, walnuts and goat’s cheese tossed with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil and cracked sea salt. This is as simple as it gets. Including this post 😉 Diane Advertisements

Raw Gingerbread Cookie Balls

Fall is upon us and Halloween is right around the corner so is it okay to start indulging in our gingerbread obsessions? As soon as anyone utters gingerbread, thoughts of the holiday season come to mind and I want to head on over to the kitchen and start baking. Instead I’m going to have to…

Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Bites

Its that time of year when the nights are getting cooler, the leaves are changing and the days are getting shorter. I just love this time of year (except for the shorter days). There are so many holidays and celebrations on the way I can’t help but feel the excitement in the air building up….

Zucchini Boats

Happy Friday everyone! Another hot and steamy day here in the Capital and I’m not complaining. Yesterday I had another successful walk and clocked in at 6.9K or 13,968 steps. Love monitoring how many steps I do in a day. The idea is that if you can do 15,000 steps a day the pounds will…

Zucchini Crostini

I can’t believe we’re halfway through September already! We’ve had amazing weather this summer and it just seems to be continuing into the fall. Today was one of those perfect fall days-sunny and hot but with a refreshing breeze just at the right moments. I’m not sure if I’ve shared with all of you my…

National Dog Appreciation Day and our Samson

One last post for the day and it’s completely non food related. Yesterday was National Dog Appreciation Day and sadly our home still has no fur baby in tow. I really do miss having a dog in the house and when days like yesterday roll around I feel it even more. So, this post is…

Tomato Keftedes Santorinian Style

Don’t you just hate it when you work away on a blog post, save it and return to finish it off only to realize that it’s not saved?!?! This is what happened to me this week with my post on these delicious Tomato Keftedes. Sigh… With our garden and the food markets overflowing with fresh…

Friday 13th & breakfast tomorrow …just for you!

Today is Friday the 13th and I’m feeling a little superstitious. Especially since while I was out today I came across a black cat trying to cross my path. I’m not kidding…I thought really? on Friday the 13th ??? Now, I’ve heard that it’s bad luck if they cross to the left of you but…

Orchid Won Ton Wrappers

You don’t have to be perfect in the kitchen to create a beautiful looking dish. Sometimes they even find you by surprise. The other weekend I was looking for a special appetizer to make and I came across a lot of sites making roses from won ton wrappers. They were just beautiful! and they looked…

Cracked Sea Salt & Semi Sweet Chocolate Popcorn

Need I say more? Seriously…Just add a movie and fireplace and you’ve got an afternoon to remember. If you haven’t tried making your own home made popcorn yet then I suggest that you add this one to your New Year’s resolution list. Don’t have any New Year resolutions? Well now you do! And here’s the…

How to make THE best chicken fingers EVA!

Boy do we love our chicken cutlets. Not only are they a family favourite they are always hit where ever I bring them. They are great for EVERYTHING…lunches, dinner, picnics, golf games, snacks…you name the occasion and I can guarantee you these cutlets will fit right in. The most tedious part of making this meal…

Roasted Chickpeas

Hello my friends. I know it’s been awhile and I apologize. Life has been busy…good…but busy. I’ve missed my little spot here in the blogoshpere and it always feels good when I make it back here. Much like coming home at the end of a long day and being greeted by the warmth of my…
