Cinnamon Applesauce

In the fall, when apples are in peak season, I always make a giant batch or two of applesauce and freeze it. It’s one of my favourite things to do in the kitchen with my son Gabe. Then, all winter long, we’re reminded of our favourite season.

This is one of my favourite salads! It’s loaded with bursts of Asian flavour that give it a ton of fusion character. It tastes exotic but its flavours are still very comfortable.

Salt & Pepper Watermelon

The first time I tossed a perfectly good watermelon with olive oil people thought I was nuts - until they tried it. The combination may sound a bit odd but once you taste it you’ll be hooked too.

Caesar Salad with Lemon Parmesan Dressing

This classic salad has come a long way since its 1924 invention by Caesar Cardini at his Tijuana restaurant. It’s now found on virtually every menu in the country - at home and in restaurants. Since there are as many ways to make it as there are cooks, I don’t spend a lot of time worrying about authenticity, just flavour. Here’s my version.

Vegetable Power Protein Soup

Who says vegetarian food has no flavour? My family enjoys vegetarian style meals several times a week and we love the rich healthy flavours. This soup features complementary legumes - the peas and lentils - and grains - the corn and rice. Together they form a complete vegetarian protein. You may use water but a quick vegetable stock will add much more flavour.

Whole Grain Pancakes

This favourite flavour is often our first heat, the first cooking of the day for my family. A batch of these pancakes is a great way to spin a strong dose of whole grains into a get-out-of-bed treat and to kick-start a nutritious day.

Asian Cucumber Mint Salad

This is a salad of contrast and balance. The sweetness of the cucumbers is sharpened by the sourness of the spicy dressing, which in turn is cooled by the refreshing mint.

Italian Basil Salad

Italian Basil Salad

I really enjoy tossing baby salad greens with tender basil leaves. Together, they flavour the salad with bright bursts of flavour and a jazzy herb twist. The rest of the salad picks up the theme and runs with it!
