Summer Green Vegetable Salad

Posted in Brunch, Gluten Free, Salad, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

Some of the best dishes I have ever created have were developed, not because I followed the recipe correctly (I am really not good at that) but rather because I didn’t have all the ingredients listed, and had to just wing it.  For all you recipe followers, I know that is a tough concept – just call me… Continue reading

Creamy Ricotta Pasta with Broccolinni

Posted in Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Pasta, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

My daughter was home from university last weekend and noticed a small container of ricotta cheese in the fridge.  Lately, I have been spreading it on toast, then showering it with lemon zest and capers, adding few slices of smoked salmon, and finishing with tons of fresh chopped dill for a fabulous and easy lunch….

Cherry Banana Bread with Toasted Almonds

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

  Today, I had planned on sharing a chicken and wild rice soup recipe, however I didn’t love the picture I captured at all – that happens, quite a bit judging by all the snaps sitting on my desktop screen that probably won’t get imported.   Instead, seeing that it’s well into the new year,… Continue reading

Charred Broccoli Soup with Herbed Croutons

Posted in Brunch, Gluten Free, Sides, Soup, Vegetarian by Pamela

In these dwindling December days filled with endless parties full of punch bowls laden with egg nog, bacon wrapped scallops on fancy trays, and entire tables devoted to artistic cheese displays, I thought you might appreciate something a bit lighter to ingest between Fêtes. This one simple soup may be the thing we all need… Continue reading

Key Lime Ricotta Cheesecake

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

I am in the fortunate situation of celebrating Thanksgiving twice every year.  Once in October with my Canadian side, and again in November with all my American friends and family. Some years it is exactly the same dinner both times.  Other years, we vary it slightly to reflect the food allergies or aversions of our… Continue reading

Crispy Shrimp with Asian Coleslaw

Posted in Appetizers, Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Seafood, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

I certainly have developed a newfound respect for cornstarch.  It usually hangs out way in the back of that cabinet that houses the baking powder and various exotic spices rarely used – until today that is. Sure, most of us already know it can be used to thicken soups, sauces and stew.  But used alone… Continue reading

Chopped Greek Salad with Quinoa and Lentils

Posted in Brunch, Gluten Free, Salad, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

I have noticed that every summer I seem to gravitate to a go-to salad, one I can quickly whip up for a impromptu BBQ at a neighbors,  a dish to pass for a picnic, or maybe just for a quick fix dinner here.  Last year it was this Summer Squash with Feta and Herb Salad, the… Continue reading

Broccolini Frittata with Crispy Potato Crust

Posted in Brunch, Gluten Free, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

I am sure I have mentioned before, that we eat a lot of eggs for dinner here.  Sometimes it’s a quick and easy frittata – like this Broccolini Frittata today, or maybe eggs Benedict with blender hollandaise, always a hit. And, my all time favorite – toast with smashed avocado, a sprinkle of lemon juice,… Continue reading

Blueberry Lemon Quick Bread

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegetarian by Pamela

Usually, I have this crazy notion that the baked goods I post here should be over the top, drool worthy, confections. When really, sometimes you just want a nice little loaf.  A basic recipe that doesn’t involve sourcing hard to find ingredients, especially those you have to order online, and then wait for delivery. Nope, this… Continue reading
