I made Lentil Shakshuka the other day and found I cooked way too many lentils.  Decided I’d make another batch and when I started the sauce I got creative adding a few other spices, then I decided I was in the mood for curry with a Thai twist.  Next thing I know I’ve got this gorgeous bubbling, thick, rich […]

Shakshuka has always been one of my favorite go to “one pot wonder” meals.  After all, how can you go wrong with a lovely warm, satisfying savory sauce of red peppers, tomatoes and loads of seasoning topped with perfectly poached eggs?!

I love using seasoned ground meat as a main dish in a myriad of ways. Once you’ve decided what kind of seasonings you’d like to use – in this case I like the South Western flavors – you can use this as a filling for taco shells, fajitas, […]

One Walk Toronto – Sept. 10, 2016

I was thrilled when approached by The Huffington Post to write an article about why I decided to join the Rexall OneWalk Toronto in support of Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.  Even more thrilled when they accepted & published it!!

Just think…if 100 people donated the equivalent of a “short” coffee (the least expensive of all drinks) […]

Ricotta Protein Pancakes

I’ve been obsessed with pancakes lately!  Not sure why, but I’ve been making them in every conceivable configuration without using flour in the last few months.

Forgot all about a fabulous recipe I used to make years ago that was just ricotta cheese, eggs and some flavoring.  Dairy was omitted from my diet for quite some […]
