Chia Seed Jam

This last week we have finally been hit with winter in Niagara. For months we knew it was just around the corner but we have had days and days of blue skies and mild weather. I think we were all getting a little too confident. Knowing it is only a few weeks left until Spring, …

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Every Spring pork goes on sale for a ridiculously good price. Often 1/10th the regular price or even less and this is the time of year that I fill up my deep freezer. Last year I scored 7 pork shoulders that were marked down to 78 cent a pound. This is a LOT of pork …

High Protein Pancakes (gluten free, paleo)

Wow, so I really love pancakes. When I went gluten free I thought I would never eat another pancake again but it has really opened up the world of possibilities to me. I have tried quite a few gluten free pancake recipes including my Buckwheat Pancakes that I am a huge fan of but I was …

Raw Chocolate Avocado Pudding

At first it may seems strange to puree avocado into a smooth, decadent pudding but I promise you it is the best idea ever. Avocado is so rich and creamy that it makes an amazing base for pudding. Use a banana that isn’t too ripe or the flavor will overwhelm the chocolate. Or you can …

Garden Vegetable Soup

The last few weeks I have been crazy visiting with an endless amount of nights out which I am beginning to feel too old for. I need a rebound. I need something healing, energizing and low-calorie. And ideally something hydrating to help me recover from the extra drink or two I have had. We have …

Mini Salted Caramel Cheesecakes

Have I ever told you how I feel about cheesecake? I have a special place in my heart (and a separate stomach) dedicated to cheesecake.     I love it any way with just about any flavorings. It is so quick to make and always gets such amazing reviews. There is a cheesecake recipe for …

Texas Fudge (Egg Appetizer)

There is this super upbeat woman I work next to at my office who told us all that she was bringing Texas Fudge to the work potluck. This conjured up images of sweet, sugary dessert but that is not at all what it is. Texas fudge is an egg-based appetizer served at room temperature and …
