Thai Red Curry Zucchini Boats

I’m keeping with my #ThaiTuesday theme. If you haven’t noticed, we really like our Thai spices around here; a couple of weeks ago, I posted one of our favourite Thai dishes. Although today’s recipe doesn’t have quite the same standing in our dinner rotation, with all the zucchini I’ve been harvesting […]

saskatoon cherry galette

Saskatoon Cherry Galette

Meet my newest lazy friend – the galette. Maybe not new for many of you, but new to me. It’s terrific! It’s like a pie without all of the work – plus – how cool does it look!? You can impress your people when they come over for dinner, being all “no […]

Zucchini Pizza

When I started the blog, I aspired to share all of my favourite go-to recipes and staples with the world. I’ve gotten a few of them out so far, like my creamy vegetable casserole, my favourite side dish of prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, my every day breakfast cookies, and of course – the star […]

Blueberry Breakfast Skillet Cookie

Blueberry Breakfast Skillet Cookie

Blueberry Breakfast Skillet Cookie. YES – breakfast. Cookie. In a skillet. You guys, this is one of those recipes that I just know I am going to make again and again. I am in love with it!! I can feed my family a giant cookie for breakfast, and feel good […]

Walnut Basil Pesto

You know how there’s some things you keep buying, even though you know it’s ridiculously easy to make? Pesto, friends. Pesto. Sidebar – for some reason the word pesto makes me think of Harry Potter.  If you yell it really loud, doesn’t it kind of sound like the beginning of a spell? […]

Roasted Corn and Chickpea Salad

Roasted Corn and Chickpea Kale Salad

Hooray! The weekend is here. I’m happy to say that I’m going to spend the evening making, and then likely photographing (depending on the success of my recipe) some birthday cupcakes. Not just any birthday cupcakes. Birthday cupcakes for a group of 3 and almost 3 year olds! When your group […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

1.  Zucchini. So much zucchini!! I love having an excess in the summer, so every year we’ve been planting 3 zucchini plants. Keep your eye out for LIMO zucchini recipes coming soon! 2.  Recipe fails. We’re currently eating our way through a lot of frozen something that didn’t work out quite […]

Healthier Double Chocolate Muffins

So, Sunday night was the much anticipated season premiere of Game of Thrones!! If you’re not a GOT fan I apologize for my enthusiasm but I have been waiting over a year for this season to kick off! It did not disappoint. So good. The opening scene with Aria!? I […]

Thai Green Chicken Curry

I’m so happy to introduce you all to what is legitimately one of Etienne and I’s favorite dinner dishes. We’ve been making this for a few years now, slowly tweaking it along the way. You might have heard me mention a while back that one of our little traditions is to […]

portugal

Chapter Five – Portugal

Portugal! Wow, what a country. Totally underrated, in our humble opinion. Etienne and I did not really know what to expect when we went, just that it was somewhere that always seemed like a neat place to go. It was amazing!! We only had 7 full days, but we made the […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Biscotti

It feels a bit odd to be posting a recipe that requires a warm oven when the average temperature lately is 27 C – BUT – these are so light and summery that they felt like the perfect July recipe. Also, I owe Etienne biscotti from a very loose “deal” that we […]
