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 […]

Colorful Grilled Corn Salad

Welcome to August! Wow, where on earth is the summer going? We’ve been having a fantastic summer so far, I just can’t believe how quickly it is flying by.

Quinoa and Black Bean Salad

We had this Quinoa and Black Bean Salad for supper last night, together with Salsa Chicken and let me tell you, I’m really looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch. Before this past summer, I’d never had quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is like a gluten-free super food. It is loaded with protein and other vitamins […]

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing

Alright, I know, it’s a lot of words in that one, but the flavours are worth saying all of that. I have made this Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing twice in the past week. Once for a family gathering, where it was entirely devoured with everyone giving it two thumbs up, and […]

Russian Salad

This recipe for Russian Salad was submitted by my Mom. It is a fantastic twist to a regular jello salad. The flavours are really great, and the sour cream layer  doesn’t make it sour, but rather, makes it very creamy. Delicious!
