Roasted Cauliflower with Harissa Sauce

Cauliflower has always been a difficult vegetable to cook in my house. I am literally the only one who would eat it, until now. I made this cauliflower, and showed it to my husband. Needless to say he was less than enthused to see a large bowl of cauliflower. I asked him to try one…

Orzo Salad

If you are looking for something quick and delicious, then this orzo salad is for you. It is perfect to make year- round. Full of flavor, fresh and light, it is great as a side with any protein or as a meal on its own. Feel free to add more cranberries and feta if you…

Cranberry Salsa

Living in Texas, salsa is always a must. This holiday version is fresh and delicious. It can be served with crackers or tortilla chips as an appetizer or right along with the turkey as part of the main meal. I like to serve it as is, but it is also delicious served over a block…

Spinach Artichoke Dip

If you are looking for the ultimate party dip, look no further! This is a dip that everyone seems to love. It is rich, creamy, cheesy and has a bit of kick at the end. It is incredibly easy to make, just mix it all together and bake! I find that using marinated artichokes gives…

The Best Coleslaw Ever!

The Best Coleslaw Ever! That is a bold statement, but in this case, an accurate one. This is the best coleslaw you will ever have, I promise. Everytime friends invite us over for dinner, they ask me to bring the coleslaw. It is incredibly easy to make. I like to make it in advance and…

Ginger and Honey Glazed Carrots

Then my mother began making them, but with her own personal flair. She added ginger. The combination of ginger, and honey, along with orange juice, gave…

Jalapeño Cheddar Corn Muffins

Another wonderful thing I have discovered since moving to the South is cornbread. I absolutely love cornbread! I love to eat it warm with butter. I love the crispy edges on the outside, and the buttery, tender texture inside. The addition of cheese and jalapeños give this sweet bread just the right amount of saltiness…

Jalapeno Avocado Ranch Dip

When I moved to Texas I had a list of food that I had to try. On the list was both Chuy’s jalapeno ranch dip and the Chick fillet chicken wrap with avocado ranch dressing. The flavours of both these dips/dressings was so good that I just had to try to make a lower calorie…

Cucumber, Tomato, Feta and Pickled Onion Salad

During the summer months, I try to eat a lot of salads and lighter fare. Now, during our time in quarantine, I have found that I keep making the same recipes over and over again. One of my all time favourite salads is a simple greek salad, but I make it often. I needed to…
