Kale Rainbow Salad

Alright! Are you guys ready to take your salad game up a notch??  This Kale Rainbow Salad came about one day when I decided to experiment a little and combine different fruits that I love.  One flash of inspiration, a little bit of tinkering, and voila, a salad was born!  It’s definitely been a hit, and has become my ‘go-to’ salad for dinner parties and potlucks (somehow I’m always the one they put in charge of bringing the salad... go figure!).  I’ve been asked for the recipe every single time I’ve made it, so I definitely think I’m onto something here!

"Kid Approved" Salmon Patties

I’ll admit it, I’ve got it pretty good when it comes to my kids being good eaters. They’re not super picky (in fact, they're pretty adventurous), they eat a wide range of veggies and both of them could literally eat fruit all day!

Citrus Curry Lentil Soup

It’s really hard to not fall in love with Morocco. From the intoxicating sights, sounds and smells of the bustling souks, the beautiful decor and amazing textiles (I literally wanted to cram every rug back in my suitcase to take home with me!) to the warm hospitality of the people, it really feels like you’ve been transported to a completely different world.  As we travelled the country exploring the ancient cities, epic mountain ranges and sweeping deserts, one constant was the delicious, rich and hearty foods and I especially fell in love with their lentil soups.

Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Fall is in full swing and I’ve got soup on my mind. This roasted Butternut Squash and Pear Soup is a perfect mix of full rich flavour with a little bit of sweet. I’ve made it a few times this season already and it hits the spot each and every time.  It’s also a win with Zee and the kids like to dunk their grill cheese sandwiches in it;)
