Cool, crunchy cucumbers, juicy ripe tomatoes, spicy chickpeas, olives, Italian parsley & a lemony avocado dressing are the stars of this simple, throw-together, nourishing bowl. 

Smoky Bacon Squash Noodles

You’ve seen veggie noodles haven’t you? They’re made using a spriralizer gadget. More often than not it’s zucchini that’s used to make endlessly long strands of noodles in the hopes of being a stand-in for traditional pasta. Butternut squash is perfect for spiralizing: not only because of its girth – the wider the vegetable the better…  [Read More]

seed & nut bread

Have you ever tried gluten-free bread & thought: oh this is pretty awful? Or been shocked at the cost of a tiny loaf? I have. Over the years I’ve tested countless recipes I’ve found in cookbooks & online as well as developing my own recipes in search of a good gluten-free breakfast bread. My parameters:…  [Read More]

the green salad with pistachio lime pesto

This super crunchy, fresh green salad is the first in a salad series I’m working on. The Green Salad with Pistachio Lime Pesto was the perfect meal after completing a five-day juice fast. And, after not eating all week, it was the best thing I’d ever eaten.                 …  [Read More]

citrus jalapeno shrimp salad

Have you ever timed yourself when you eat? Mostly like you haven’t. I have. Next time you’re eating something warm & comforting notice how fast you wolf-down your meal. Then time yourself consuming a salad. The resulting time between the two meals is quite different – the salad taking more than twice as long to…  [Read More]

And it’s blueberry season & I had to share with you a gorgeous chipotle salmon, blueberry & corn salad I made a few weeks ago. Reminiscent of Tex-Mex flavors, this…  [Read More]

chicken & noodle larb

Larb – one of my all-time favorite salads. Originating in Laos, larb is vibrant & lively. A delicious, exciting salad of ground chicken, lots of garlic, fiery chilies, noodles, peanuts, crunchy bean sprouts, mint, cilantro, lime juice & fish sauce – all ingredients typical to Southeast Asian cuisine. Not always served with noodles, I think…  [Read More]

roasted cherry chutney

A homemade chutney can elevate an ordinary piece of grilled or roasted meat to pretty darn sensational status. Especially when the chutney is my roasted cherry chutney. Perfect with pork, ham, wild boar, duck & beef. And cheese. It’s very good with an aged white cheddar or a creamy blue. And wine of course. 

cherry, pecan & goat cheese salad

Cherry season is in full swing here in the northern hemisphere. Apart from the obvious – being good to eat, cherries are exceptionally nutritious. These juicy beauties are loaded with antioxidants; melatonin to help you sleep better (send a truckload to my place please); can help with high blood pressure (make that two truckloads) & they…  [Read More]
