Goat cheese, parsley and cauliflower soufflé

This dish is an airy and puffy single portioned goat cheese soufflé recipe. It fluffs up when its removed from the oven. If you are a cheese enthusiast, you will love the hint of goat cheese in this dish. The cauliflower provides a hearty side to this light appetizer. It looks beautiful and is an impressive course…

Funfetti Pronuts!

  As I am looking at , hopefully, our last snowfall in Montreal, I am just trying to find enough Springtime glee to be able to muster up enough joy linked to Easter menus to proudly scream that Spring is finally here. But instead, I am cringing at the site of another snowfall. On a…

Clean Crab Salad

I crave simple recipes for lazy days and other times where I am rushing with time before having to get to work. Moreover, with this crappy weather, I have been craving summer dishes. Lobster rolls to be specific. Since it is not the season and I am not yet balling out, I have opted for…

Black Bean Brownies

When I first stumbled on this recipe, I thought it would be interesting to try. I am a fan of finding the right substitutes to our favourite munchies. After months of reluctance, (likely due to not being quite sure how beans can replace flour) I gave in and played around with a few recipes and…

Clean Loaded Tostones

I have made this recipe over and over again but only a my house. I have yet to to test these babies on my Caribbean and/or Hispanic friends. For sure I will not tell them these were not fried because I will get dissed right away. Therefore, I will have to trick them. Yes, lie….

Tomato and Olive Tapenade

The moment I felt the sweet kiss of pinot grigio, my toes curled, my eyelids got heavy and my knees got weak. I was smitten by the aromatic and the bitter side of grigio. It was like my interpretation of fifty shades of grey if I read the book or saw the movie. On a serious…

Zucchini Crust

I just know that I have so many that are skeptical on how tasty this recipe can be. Let’s face it. It is a substitute for a super junk food. Pizza dough without the flour and unnecessary fillers make quite the difference to persons with health or fitness goals. When I was first introduced to…

Caprese Pasta (Zoodle) Salad

I really cannot believe I grew up not being a big fan of the American/Italian meals and had thought that Italian meals are exactly just that: Cheese crust stuffed pizza or spaghetti and meatballs. I was not to be taken to an Italian restaurant until I grew up and out of that phase quick. Now…

Orange and Beet Salad

Something I am loving right now is obviously the weather but even better is the different food that we have access to this time of year. Produce taste that much sweeter and richer.  Beets and oranges are food that we commonly have an exuberant supply of during the winter season. This month, right in between…

Kale, Radicchio, Grapefruit Salad

This weather sucks and feels like winter is lasting forever. Working night shifts can influence your eating habits. I am in an office with 3 or 4 guys that order pizza, offer me cookies and chocolate during my shift which I politely decline although my palate is craving otherwise. I am on a journey of…
