Spicy Tofu with a Noodle Salad

It is finally here, perfected and ready to share with everyone! Full disclosure, I had a challenging time getting the creative juices flowing to write this one up for you all. For me, this time of year is when I become weirdly obsessed with eating salads, and all the fresh local produce I can. I…

No Bake Cheesecake with Rhubarb

Easy, delicious, make-ahead no bake rhubarb cheesecake is going to be your favourite dessert for this summer.

Turnip and Potato Kabobs

As we are heading into BBQ season, but not quite everything grill-able in season. Why not grill some starch! Wait, what?

Spicy Tofu Lettuce Wraps and Peanut Sauce

A little over 9 years ago, I was in Vietnam. I was never a HUGE fan of Vietnamese food, but after that trip, I LOVE Vietnamese food. And not just pho, but spring rolls, salad rolls, banh mi sandwiches, lemon grass anything and the list can go on and on. Over the past few years,…
