Strawberry Mango Avocado Salsa

This recipe came about entirely by accident. I was trying to picture what sort of topping/salsa I might want on top of my Jalapeno Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken, (pictured below) when it occurred to me that mango salsa would be really awesome. But of course I was running short on mangos, so I added what I did have, which happened ...

Savory Vegan Cashew Cream Sauce

If you're in need of a good dairy free cream sauce, today's your lucky day! But even if you're not dairy free, hang with me for a moment to revel in the lusciousness of this incredible sauce. When I posted my family's special occasion recipe for Life Changing Rosemary Mushroom Cream Sauce around the holidays, I received lots of requests ...

Life Changing Rosemary Mushroom Cream Sauce

This sauce is going to come into your life and envelop you in it's incredibly creamy embrace. It's quite simply the number one recipe we make at family holidays, and birthday occasions. I know the title is a little over the top, but I do save the truly outrageous claims for my family's all time favorite recipes. I mean the ...

Saté Turmeric Chicken with Creamy ‘Peanut’ Sauce

These saté chicken skewers are the partner recipe to the Asian Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad I posted last week. The combination of flavors lights up your mouth, and the creamy 'peanut' sauce takes this dish right over the top. In fact I almost made a recipe out of just the 'peanut' sauce because it's both easy and versatile, along with ...

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 ...
