Summer Chickpea Salad

This is the perfect salad for summer. Tomatoes, basil and parsley are straight from the garden. All you need is to pull the chickpeas, olive oil and red wine vinegar from the pantry. Very refreshing and boyfriend-approved! Great for lunches, pot luck, and addition to  dinner. Summer Chickpea Salad   Print Prep time 10 mins

So Good Lentil Soup

I am a cookbook-aholic. When I go to the library, I rent about 5 at a time, taking my time to look carefully at all the recipes. I am pretty dedicated that I even carry post it notes in my purse so I can tag the pages I like to copy down later. Oh ya

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

Spicy Eggplant Rigatoni

Eggplant is a bit of an oddball vegetable. Not many people buy or cook with it simply because it’s an eggplant.

Old Fashioned Tomato Soup

This is my favourite soup! It has been made and passed down for decades by my dad’s family. The Dutch are commonly health-conscience, frugal and interested in self-healing so their recipes and cooking is generally low-fat and wholesome. I had only discovered this recipe for old fashioned soup this past summer and didn’t waste any time making it

Baingan Bharta – Indian Egglant Dish

This is the first Indian recipe I have ever attempted and perhaps first times a charm is the word because it tasted exactly like the takeout I had the week before. I skimped on the fresh herbs using ground so this would probably make another world of difference in taste. You would never search Baingan

Vegan Chocolate Cake

This Vegan Chocolate Cake has been shared on two top rated vegan recipe sites – fatfreevegan.com and veganconnection.com – and I understand why. I made these vegan cupcakes the other day for a holiday party and they got rave reviews! They taste just like the cake mix you buy in store – with no eggs

Coconut Chai Inspired Breakfast Cake

I brought this chai-inspired breakfast cake to a pot luck last week for dessert- absolutely delicious! Technically it is a “breakfast” cake but it worked perfect as a satisfying dessert after a big supper. Tastes like you are eating something rich in calories but your tummy and butt don’t feel it after. This recipe was
