Tostones Eggs Benedict with Mango Salsa and Avocado Hollandaise

It all started with an all consuming need for Eggs Benedict! It was super early on a Sunday morning in Fernie B.C. and I just couldn't get the thought of hollandaise out of my head. I mean... is there a better sauce? I don't see how it's possible with all that velvety texture, and supreme richness! We walked into what ...

Caramelized Pineapple Salsa

I think my favorite thing about Pineapple Salsa is that it tastes amazing year round. Decent pineapple is pretty easy to find these days, (I get mine at Costco) and even if it's a little underripe, caramelizing it brings out its natural sugars, and makes it taste fantastic. Even my husband who isn't a huge fan of pineapple likes it ...

Slow Cooker Spiced Pear Sauce

Ever since I found out you could make applesauce in a slow cooker, I haven't looked back. Not that it takes very long on the stove top, but it does require attention and stirring. Not so with the convenient slow cooker, you just have to put everything in and it does all the work. I usually put a batch in ...

Pumpkin Spice Pancake Syrup

I just spent most of an entire day planning out our trip to Zion National Park, and I feel like I just skimmed the surface, (i.e. I'm feeling overwhelmed with the sheer amount of amazing things to see in Utah)! So just to make it official, I'm now accepting all suggestions about what to do and see, specifically in Zion ...

Andouille Marinara over Zucchini Noodles

One of my favorite ways to make a fast and flavorful spaghetti sauce is to use sausage in place of the usual ground beef. It has all it's own spices and flavors built right in, which means way less ingredients without compromising on flavor! Normally I just use Italian sausage, but it finally occurred to me to change it up ...

Fruit and Yogurt Cups with Granola

These fruit and yogurt cups have been a real lifesaver lately! They are so easy to make, and I love the convenience of having pre-made breakfasts all ready-to-go in the fridge. Picture creamy Greek Yogurt, topped with a homemade Triple Berry Sauce, with a sprinkling of Maple Cinnamon Granola and you'll see why I just can't get enough of these! ...

Rosemary Chicken Ragu with Butternut Noodles

Butternut noodles are a surprising thing - somehow the spiralizer totally changes the texture of butternut squash, leaving behind some of the squashy-ness and transcending into wonderfully sweet noodles! You're going to love them with all sorts of toppings, but today I'm giving you my favorite pairing yet - Rosemary Chicken Ragu. The savory sauce has an almost velvety texture, ...

Rosemary Garlic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

You probably know by now that I'm all about simplicity, and never more so than in the summer! When produce is at it's peak, it tastes amazing all by itself, so I've been guilty of eating tomatoes plain right off the vine all summer long. But... last weekend we went to this phenomenal Italian restaurant in Calgary (it's called Mercato ...

Double Coconut Salted Caramel Sauce

Everyone needs a good caramel sauce - it's a basic like chocolate sauce or aioli, these things are essentials! Don't be fooled by the double coconut in the title, because it doesn't really taste like coconut, just a deep caramel flavor. The coconut part of this recipe comes from the coconut sugar and coconut cream, which is what makes this ...
