Baked Leek Chips

This is one of my favourite simple salty snacks. The crunchy little leek rings remind me of onion rings, minus all the unnecessary breading. I’ll just caution you in advance… while these little nibbles are nutritious, they are also highly addictive! The only thing about these little dynamo’s is that you need to make them […]

Pumpkin Coconut Latte (Sans Coffee)

Move over Starbucks!

While your hot drinks are brilliant creations of flavours, the ingredients leave me, well… a little under-satisfied.   If […]

Seared Scallops in a Spaghetti Squash Boat

While I was being efficient (some may say “lazy”, but I’m okay with that) making this dish by combining the basil pesto right in the spaghetti squash skin rather than scooping it out into a bowl first, it seems almost gourmet served this way. Spaghetti squash is such a great alternative to nutrient deficient pasta. It’s […]
