Salsa Fresca

Jamie and I were at the Farmers Market this past weekend, and my eyes went wide when I saw that farm fresh field tomatoes were available.  I love tomatoes, and when they are in season, I can’t stop myself from indulging in a large variety of tomato treats;

Spicy Hummus

Now that the weather is nice, it is time to start to think about BBQ’s, picnics and the many types of food that go along with these outdoor events. Fresh vegetables are always a favourite of mine, but sometimes just eating raw vegetables gets a little boring. I find myself scouring the picnic table looking for something to dip my cucumber slice into. Then I see it – Hummus!

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

I was standing at a supermarket check-out when a Canadian Living magazine featuring Slow Cooker recipes caught my eye.  As I picked up the magazine and started flipping through it, a Butter Chicken Recipe peaked my interest.  Then the dilemma set in; do I need to purchase another cooking magazine, or do I try to find a similar recipe on-line?  My pocketbook won the internal debate, and when I arrived home, I started searching for a Slow Cooker Butter Chicken recipe on the internet.

Chili Chicken & Peppers

Well, I am back with another super easy chicken recipe 🙂

Roasted Carrots and Brussels Sprouts

I find something very comforting about roasted vegetables.  I love how a hearty, meaty vegetable turns soft and luxurious when it has been roasted to perfection in the oven.  It really represents the winter months when you turn on your oven and find yourself roasting or baking most of your meals.

Madras Beef Curry

My New Year’s Resolution this year was one new recipe a week.  I have a lot of cookbooks, and I often look through them as if they were novels, but I have a hard time following recipes.  I always add a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Not that it is a bad thing, but I thought maybe I should try to follow some recipes as they are written this year 🙂
