SPICY THAI-STYLE PUMPKIN AND BUTTERNUT RAMEN

Mornings have been rough. Really rough. I’m not a morning person at all by nature, so it’s hard enough for me to get up as is, throw in the fact that those early hours have become increasingly darker with each passing day, and I’m pretty much still in a coma come 7:30 am. It also […]

Marinated Kale And Whipped Ricotta Pizza

How weird would it be if my new favorite pizza included something GREEN? I mean, usually I wax poetic (HA) about how I am the most boring-est pizza eater on the planet, forcing any and all around me to order their delivery box completely PLAIN with just cheese because toppings are for fools. Okay not […]

Roast pumpkin, herb & walnut pasta bake

A pasta bake’s always a welcome, comforting dish.  I made a pumpkin pasta & walnut bake a few weeks ago, threw in some fresh herbs and roasted the vegies beforehand to give them that sweet, caramelised taste.  The roast pumpkin slightly breaks down into the pasta and cream, making this dish super creamy and delicious […]

GARLICKY KALE SALAD WITH CRISPY CHICKPEAS

Sometimes a girl just needs a hearty kale salad. There’s no explaining why; she just does. So move out of the way and give her that kale salad. She deserves it. That and the chocolate. Give her all of the chocolate. Since my first few experiences with kale, wherein I couldn’t figure out how to […]

ONE-POT CREAMY PUMPKIN PASTA

I first posted this pumpkin pasta recipe just about two years ago, on September 9, 2014. On its (almost) two-year-anniversary, I thought I’d share it again! It’s been a huge favorite of readers (and us!) ever since I shared it. I had to curtail dairy shortly after creating this recipe, so about a year ago, […]

THAI COCONUT CURRY BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

Right now, I’m sipping hot coffee, trying desperately not to burn my mouth. I have my coat on (inside the office), a sweater, and a t-shirt, and I’m still cold. I had to warm up my car for 10 minutes this morning. Hello, freezing Fall weather. I’ve been anticipating your arrival. There are two ways […]

Crispy Kale Grilled Cheese With Fried Eggs

I made you a vegetable today!! With cheese and eggs. And bread. (and butter.) It was in between watching Down to You (ummm please tell me you remember this, the best movie of my high school life) and eating a pan of brownies one sliced off sliver at a time (no calories that way, don’t […]

CRISPY POTATOES WITH GARLIC LEMON AVOCADO AIOLI

Today I want to talk to you about some of my favourite bright and shiny NEW and awesome things. First of all, the obvious: We’ve got a new month starting and it just so happens to be the brightest and shiniest of the year! December, aka “Christmas month”, starts tomorrow! And in just 31 days, […]
