Pumpkin Spice Almond Bread

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

Although fall has arrived, I feel it is not my job to bombard you with all things pumpkin.  We can thank Starbucks for starting the Pumpkin Latte craze.  Although it certainly doesn’t stop there, at the grocery store today I spotted Pumpkin Spice Instant Oatmeal, Pumpkin Spice Cheerio’s, Lucy’s Pumpkin Patch Cookies, I draw the… Continue reading

Vegan Blueberry “Cheesecake”

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

I have posted a lot of cheesecake here – mainly because I love them,  also because you can adapt them to so many occasions.  Dinner party?  This Meyer Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake or Key Lime Cheesecake marry well with any menu. Holiday? Try this Pumpkin Pie Ricotta Cheesecake or equally as festive Pumpkin Cheesecake with Candied Nut… Continue reading

Chickpea Flatbread with Crispy Shallots

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

I picked up a tin of Za’tar Za’tar while traveling a while back, such a while back that I don’t remember where.  It seemed like serendipity when I found a recipe for Socca – a grilled chickpea flatbread made frequently in the south of France. A Middle Eastern spice blend of marjoram or thyme, oregano, dried… Continue reading

Charred Corn Salad with Tomatoes and Feta

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

Every summer there seems to be a salad that I gravitate to, and tend make again and again.  The criteria is usually that it’s super easy to whip up, no ingredients that are strange or hard to procure. Extra points if it contains local, in season produce, doesn’t need extended refrigeration, can pair well with most… Continue reading

Blueberry Corn Muffins

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

I am not going to pretend that I haven’t posted these muffins previously, I have.  The reason to share them with you again is because they are so versatile.  I made them the first time because I was traveling and needed them to be hearty enough to last in my carryon without being squashed too… Continue reading

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…. Continue reading

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

Anniversary Chicken

Posted in Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Meats, Paleo, Poultry by Pamela

The hubby and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago.  Normally, you would think that necessitated a evening out in a dimly lit restaurant with a fancy dinner and exorbitantly priced wine. Truth be told, I am usually all over the super expensive restaurant experience.  Banquette seating and thick napkins.  Swoon.  Michelin… 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
