A Lack of Colour

I’ve been feeling heavily uninspired in the kitchen lately. We’ve been eating a lot of pasta, a lot of Marcella Hazan’s 3 ingredient tomato sauce on top of said pasta, a lot of bread-based meals and boring grains. Whether it’s the grey cast days we’ve been having lately or the general lack of colour in […]

Haters Gonna Hate [Caramelized Brussels Sprout + Thyme Mini Scones]

I never understand the hate for Brussels sprouts. Whether boiled whole with no butter and little salt, or simmered slowly in cream until nutty and fragrant, I can’t get enough. They are little green orbs of happiness and seeing them at the market makes my heart sing. I’m hoping these scones, with their sweet and […]

It’s The Holidays – Chill Out! [15-Minute Grainy Sausage Apple & Fennel Stuffing]

If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving today, you’re probably feeling that all too familiar cocktail of nerves, excitement and yes, maybe a little exhaustion.  Planning for the holidays is tough, often prolonged work.

Farmers, Chefs & Markets [Heirloom Tomato Tart w Lemon Ricotta & Cornmeal/Thyme Crust]

We rose, slower than usual, from our slumber Sunday morning, sipped our coffees as we rubbed our eyes, and had a small breakfast. We knew saving space in our tummies would pay off as we were in for a treat later in the afternoon.  As we pulled into the parking lot of Brewer Park, the current home […]

A Thyme Tequila [Lemon-Thyme Tequila Spritzer for Taste of Home]

Oh man! It’s Friday!  You know what that means, right? Time to roll up your sleeves, crush up some ice, and end your busy week with something icy cold and brightly flavoured! Taste of Home asked if I might be interested in submitting a cocktail recipe for their “Cocktail Friday” feature on the blog. Clearly, we […]

Eating. Simply. [Cream of Mushroom Soup]

Every so often I need to be reminded.  That food is to be enjoyed, each bite relished in – not rushed through so I can edit photos and start writing. Meals are to be made because you want them – not because it’s been thismany days since you posted a recipe with thiskind of ingredient. […]
