A few days ago, I celebrated my 31st birthday (ouch). The idea of making my own birthday cake felt a little bit lame but I still wanted a healthy treat to come home to after a dinner at my favourite restaurant. Continue reading “Strawberry “Cheesecake” Jars (Raw-Vegan)”
Summer is coming to an end (sigh)! I realize that for a lot of people it’s summertime all year long, but for us folks in the Northern hemisphere, it’s a very short season that always seems Continue reading “Grilled Cajun Prawns with Jalapeño Cilantro Sauce”
These days there’s a ton of tomatoes, fresh herbs and chili peppers growing in the garden. And since I have been trying really hard to buy and cook with fresh local produce I have been using tomatoes in a lot of recipes lately.

Let’s be clear, I am in no way pretending that this is going to taste like spaghetti or any type of pasta for that matter, and I wasn’t intending on creating a substitute when making this recipe. If anything this dish would fall more appropriately into the salad category. Continue reading “Sun-dried Tomato Pesto Zucchini Noodles”
I really wish I had an exciting story to tell about this salad but the truth is, this is a pretty classic Tuna Nicoise. I did make a few changes but the essence of the traditional French salad remained 😉 I used asparagus instead Continue reading “Ahi Tuna Nicoise Salad”
