Predictably Perfect: Roasted Squash with Whole Wheat Pasta

Roasted Squash with Whole Wheat Pasta

We all have our favourite flavours, right? The ones that keep tempting us, year after year, and become mainstays in our home cooking. Also the ones that as food bloggers we have to watch ourselves on, lest we become known as “the girl who writes that goat’s cheese blog“. Read more…

We got boring: Roasted Beet, Walnut and Goat’s Cheese Salad

Roasted Beet, Walnut and Goat's Cheese Salad

“We got beets!”

Does anyone else remember that Simpsons line? Marge and Lisa are coming home from the grocery store, and an enthusiastic Lisa calls this out to Homer and Bart?

What’s the worst possible thing you could find in your kitchen? If you’re like me, your answer will probably be “a mouse”. I have a dehabilitating fear of the disgusting little things, and would probably rather deal with any number of bug infestations than see one scurrying around in my favourite room.
