Roasted Garlic Butternut Hummus

I love making hummus out of ingredients that are beyond the ordinary. I know it's technically not hummus if there's no chickpeas in it. But for those of us that can't have beans, those types of technicalities don't matter all that much. I figure if it tastes like hummus, and has a hummus texture, that's good enough for me! So ...

Crockpot Applesauce

Ever since I started making applesauce in the crockpot, I've never looked back. It's so easy to put together, and it cooks while I sleep! Waking up to fresh applesauce for breakfast is also totally great. The whole house smells amazing, and applesauce tastes so good warm or even hot, (which was a new concept for me). If you've never ... Read More

Easy Blender Fire Roasted Salsa

There's a local Mexican restaurant we've been going to for more years than I can remember, and they have the best salsa. I've always wondered what makes it so rich in flavor, but I'd never really attempted to figure it out before. I've always made a blender salsa year round when tomatoes aren't in season with fire roasted canned tomatoes. ... Read More

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 ... Read More

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 ... Read More

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 ... Read More

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 ... Read More
