Tourtiere

Maple Brushed Tourtiere

Happy 150th Birthday, Canada!! I originally posted this recipe over 3 years ago, as one of my first ever blog posts.

Natalie Browne Absolutely! I like the idea of adding fennel. I'm going to do that next time.

Mango Ginger Smoothie

Mango Ginger Smoothie

Looking for a healthy kickstart to your day? Smoothies can be a great place to start. But, not all smoothies are created equal.

Jef Play around with the veggy additions as they can add great colour. Today I tried a bit of Beet; a little goes along way with beet, but it had such great colour. Chard instead of spinach works and I've added Purple Yam a few times too. Great way to sneak raw veggies into your diet!!
Natalie Browne Thanks, Dana! There's nothing wrong with a spinach, banana and PB smoothie, but it is fun to play around a little. The mango and ginger go together so nicely and makes for a nice, tropical taste.

It All Begins With Food

Chocolate Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie, a cookbook review and a giveaway

Anyone who knows me, knows I love to get my hands on a new cookbook.

Justine | JustineCelina.com This seems like such a lovely recipe and a great cookbook! I love cooked sweet potato in smoothies -- it works so well to add creaminess and nutrition at the same time.
Jen Freese I would love to win this because due to medicines I need to take I have gained quite a bit of weight. I am always on the look out for healthy recipes; this looks amazing!

French Lentil and Quinoa Salad

Quinoa salad always makes a lovely light lunch. Combined with French lentils, this salad becomes a little heartier.

Jhuls I haven't tried cooking with quinoa or lentils, though I have tried eating them from friends... and they taste really nice. This looks so delicious and indeed a light meal to enjoy. Thank you for joining this week's Fiesta Friday party. I hope you are having a good time. :)
Natalie Browne Thank you!!

Natalie Browne Thank you! I always love asparagus and lemon together, but I really like the idea of candied lemon in this recipe. And, of course, the truffle zest :)
