Roasted Tomato and Basil Soup

Roasted Tomato and Basil Soup

It’s soup season!  This Roasted Tomato and Basil Soup is rich and flavourful with a slight hint of heat from the jalapeño peppers.  When I make soup I prefer thick, creamy textures to the runny chicken noodle types.  This soup is no exception but if […]

Pumpkin Spice Latte & Frappuccino

Pumpkin Spice Latte & Frappuccino

Before I moved to the city, I used to love taking trips in during the fall to get pumpkin spice lattes.  Now that I know whats in them and how they affect my adrenals and blood sugar, I’ll pass.  Instead, I make my own with […]

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Homemade Salsa

I’m feeling sad that summers at it’s end and fall is on it’s way.  It’s not that I don’t like fall, I actually really enjoy it.  Fall is just too short and here in Canada we know that cold white stuff comes shortly after.  In […]

Chocolate, Coconut & Cashew Butter Cups

Chocolate, Coconut & Cashew Butter Cups

I find the easiest way to make homemade chocolates is to use a mini muffin tin and that way I also get to make a tasty filling.  This recipe is for a dark chocolate that’s deep and rich in flavour.  If you’re not a fan […]
