Ginger Molasses Cookies

I’ve made these cookies many times before, but not recently. This is the season of gingerbread and warm spices so I wanted to make these cookies again. It’s a recipe from Kathy Patalsky’s blog (Kathy’s Cookie Recipe). I love using this recipe but I always make a couple changes to it. I never put the…

Festive Toast

I love toast (including this one Sweet Potato Avocado Toast). This morning I made 2 different kinds of toast. The first one with avocado and sliced cucumber was delicious and I knew it would be since that’s my go-to variety. The other one had ricotta cheese (leftover from my Lasagna Rollups) and pomegranate arils. This one was…

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

I wanted a nice pumpkin pie, but at the same time, I wanted it to be healthyish. I was successful in finding a recipe! Chocolate Covered Katie (Crustless Pumpkin Pie) made this crustless pumpkin pie and I had to make it too. It was pretty easy to make and I followed the directions exactly as…

Lasagna Rollups

Who thinks lasagna roll ups are better than regular lasagna? I do!  I made them for dinner last night and they were delicious. They’re probably as intensive to make as regular lasagna but much easier to eat and serve. I got 12 rolls in my dish which would serve 4-6 people.  So I simply spread…

Dehydrated Kiwi and Strawberries

I’ve made apple chips before but I’ve ways wanted to try to make other dried fruits. I had so many kiwis in my house so I sliced those thinly, and I also sliced a couple strawberries for variety. I put them in a 170 degree oven for 2.5 hours at first and at that point,…

Almond Biscotti

I love biscotti. They’re such a good cookie and perfect for the holidays coming up soon.  I’ve made this recipe many times before from Canadian living recipes. The only changes I made to the original recipe was using slivered almonds instead of whole; and cooking them on their side (and flipping halfway) for the second…

Berry Pancakes

I love eating fruit but I’m not such a fan of it in pancakes – I just don’t like when you bite into it and it kinda explodes in your mouth. So I thought it would be a good idea to blend the fruit first then mix it into the batter. It added sweetness and…

Cold Tofu Bowl

I’m kinda digging cold tofu since I made it yesterday and really liked it (Veggie Stirfry with Cold Tofu). Today, I again just cut it into cubes but this time I made a little dressing out of this delicious spicy/sweet pepper sauce that I got and olive oil and a touch of maple syrup. I…

Veggie Stirfry with Tofu

It was a hot and cold thing going on with this lunch. I had a hot stirfry with bokchoy and leftover roasted asparagus and squash. Then I had a cold tofu that I just cut up into small cubes and pressed for a couple minutes. I seasoned both components with just teriyaki sauce and sriracha,…

Carrot Pulp Muffins

My dad loves to make juice and there’s always so much pulp that usually gets thrown out. This time, I wanted to use it. He made a carrot apple juice, so I used that (but any variety of fruit/vegetable pulp will work, but you could also just use the freshly grated things too).  I used…

Salmon and Veggie Bowl

This meal started off as leftover salmon and roasted veggies and became a delicious couscous bowl with added boy choy and corn. I just threw the veggies in a pot to warm them up then I added the book choy, corn and broke up the salmon into bit sized pieces. To season it all, I…

Penne with Bolognese

I love making my own pasta sauce. It’s so easy to just grab a jar in the grocery store, but homemade it healthier and tastes so much better (in my opinion). I made the easiest meat sauce to go with pasta, for dinner tonight. I started off by sautéing onions and celery in a splash…
