Sesame Salmon

I was born and raised on the west coast of Canada where salmon is practically its own food group (and not maple syrup or seal like many stereotypes would have you believe). Salmon is not only delicious but its also one of the most nutritious fish you can eat. One of the most well known…

DSC_0906

I have eaten more than my fair share of cupcakes over the years and consider myself to be quite the expert. Full disclosure: I primarily eat cupcakes for the icing and have been known to cut the top off the cupcake and just eat the icing. This is usually because the cupcake has a delicious…

Lamb Collard Wraps with Tzatziki & Hummus

There are so many delicious components to these wraps; rich lamb meatballs, creamy dairy free tzatziki, zucchini hummus and crunchy cucumber all wrapped up in a collard leaf!

I can’t believe I haven’t posted a cauliflower recipe in over a month!

Shepard’s Pie

I have always assumed that Shepard’s Pie and Cottage Pie are the same thing, merely referred to differently depending on which side of the Atlantic you are from, similar to aubergine and eggplant or courgette and zucchini. Fun fact, that’s not true. The dish dates back to the 1700’s when it was primarily eaten by…

As promised, here is the first of two savoury muffin recipes. When most people think of muffins they think of the sweet classics including Lemon & blueberry, Cranberry or Banana. Truthfully, I am more of a savoury muffin kind of girl, which is why I can’t believe it has taken me so long to finally…
