Gluten-free Spicy Chicken Taco Salad

Gluten-Free Spicy Chicken Taco Salad

  My favorite dinners are the kind that are quick to prepare, yet full of flavour. Pasta dishes are always a good option, but as the weather gets warmer and the sun shines longer into the evening, it’s nice to have a repertoire of lighter, healthier salads as well. This Spicy Chicken Taco Salad is […]

Southwest Chicken Mango Quinoa

I love quinoa. Ask me 2 years ago, and I’d never heard of it. Weird how 2 years ago, one hadn’t ever heard of an ancient grain before, but so it goes! I love how quick it cooks up (perfect for those “What’s for supper today” days). I love the nutty flavour it has behind […]

Creamy Quinoa Stuffed Tomatoes

These tomatoes are stuffed with the super healthy, gluten-free, grain-like seed called quinoa. Most of the flavour comes from using the Garlic and Herb flavoured cream cheese. Super simple to make, yet impressive looking and most importantly, delicious! This dish goes great with steak, chicken, or fish.

Creamy Asparagus Soup

I know this Creamy Asparagus Soup may not look like much, but it is so delicious. The adults loved it, the kids loved it, what more do you need to make a great soup? This soup did have the asparagus tips in there, but you know what? They sink. So, although they were there, they […]
