Portobello Mushroom Burgers (in the oven)

How great to cheer up this rainy day than portobello mushroom burgers! I’m not dedicated enough to flip these babies on the BBQ so I’m grilling the burgers in the oven. Quick Tuesday night dinner with a mouthful of flavour and freshness! Portobello Mushroom Burgers (in the oven)   Print Prep time 10 mins Cook

Pesto Pasta with Shrimp and Tomatoes

I made pesto!!! You have no idea how long I have wanted to make pesto. I was blessed with a food processor this Christmas, so I was overjoyed to give this a whirl. For some reason I thought pesto was made with parsley…..but to my surprise when I got home to look up the recipe,

Baked Eggplant Parmesan-less Casserole

I got home from work, looking at the fridge thinking what can I make? I found the eggplant in the fridge and found the recipe I planned to make a week earlier. Whipping it together in less than 5 minutes (those are the best kind of meals to make after work) When I told Kenny

Thai Shrimp Noodle Soup

I am on a mission to work my way through the 1000 (literally) recipes that have been copied in the past couple years and collected from family members. Recently I have started writing the new recipes I discover in cookbooks on recipe cards to help me actually make them. The key is to keep a

So Good Lentil Soup

Spinach Lasagna

The great thing about a lasagna is it is quick, easy and lasts a few meals (depending on how big your family is). This spinach lasagna is a great alternative to the meat lasagna which can sometimes be heavy. WARNING there is a lot of garlic in this recipe! YUM I like using whole wheat

Tex Mex Tomato Rice Soup

I LOVE this soup! I actually follow the recipe on this one because it is SO good. It’s hearty and packed with a good balance of spice, veggies and carbs. As a side weight loss tip, to promote digestion and fat-burning it is best to avoid mixing too much protein with carbs. Give your body

Vegetarian Chilli

I can’t count how many times I brewed a solid batch of vegetarian chilli when in college and living on my own now. It is near impossible to make it the same twice – especially if you don’t follow a recipe like me. Go on a good raid of your freezer, spice rack, vegetable drawer, and

Save Money Eating Healthy

Eating healthy can be expensive if you are buying too much for too much. Think about healthy eating as quality and quantity. You get more for your money. A $2 box of Kraft dinner will fill up 2 kids. Their blood sugars will soar and will leave them hungry shortly thereafter. So they will grab
