Artichoke & Sun-Dried Tomato Tapenade

Family life settled back to a calm pace. Call me a terrible mom, but at the end of the vacation I am so ready for the kid to go back to school and get some peace and quiet around here. Domestic chores seemed to have settled down as well; within 5 minutes, tops, he can make any size living room look like it’s been hit by a tornado. It’s a talent,…

Sizzling Asparagus & Bacon Kabobs

This this this this this! Did I say ‘this’ already? I hate repeating myself, but I really need you to know you have to make these kabobs! You need them in your life. Everyone does. You take everything good in this world and you put it on a stick, grill it and then you eat it. It cannot possibly be any easier. They are so simple, but so delicious. I…

Now here’s the deal; like any other food blogger, I too had…

So I stick to what I know and I run with it. Beige. Boring. Plain. Call it whatever you want, but it works for me and it makes…

Avocado, Chicken & Walnut Salad

As often as I eat avocado and chicken salad, I somehow never eat them together. And actually filling the avocado with the chicken salad is such a novel idea that never would’ve crossed my mind had someone in my twitter timeline not posted a photo of this dish while eating it at a restaurant. I really thought it a brilliant idea! It’s quick and easy, especially when you use leftover…

Apple, Radish & Carrot Salad

It looks as though autumn is setting in here, so I figured I’d give you an amazing salad for these last few days of summer. It’s crunchy, fresh, mildly sweet and really tasty. The finely sliced vegetables are lightly drizzled with an Asian-style dressing that gives it the perfect finishing touch. I’ve always served salads as a side dish, but this is my new favourite appetizer; full of flavour and…
