Quiche Lorraine

If you’ve never made a quiche before, don’t worry, it couldn’t be easier. Especially if you’re working with a prepared frozen crust. If not, it’s still easy, it just takes more time and planning. Ingredients 1 prepared frozen pie crust 1/2 pound of bacon (you can use more or less to your taste) 1 cup milk 1/2 cup heavy cream 3 eggs 1/2 teaspoon salt Black pepper to taste (we used about 1/2 teaspoon) 1/8...

Paloma Mocktail

If you go to the right restaurant, the old waiter will light up briefly when you order it – because it’s just not a drink that people order – right before he goes all sadface on you to say that they don’t keep grapefruit soda behind the bar. Instead of grapefruit soda, a simple – and much fresher – combo of grapefruit juice and club soda works even better. At home. Pants optional. Ingredients 1/2 cup...

Lentil Vegetable Soup

This lentil vegetable soup is a favorite of my boys and so easy to make. I think one of the reasons they like it, is because I chop all of the vegetables really small. And, like most of the soups I make, if you don’t have an ingredient, such as carrot or spinach, leave it out or substitute another favorite ingredient. Ingredients 2 small onions, finely chopped 2 carrots, finely chopped 6 small white...

Roasted Strawberry and Feta Focaccia with Balsamic Glaze

Can I just say that this roasted strawberry and feta focaccia with balsamic glaze just might be one of the best things to ever come out of my kitchen?  I don’t think that’s overstating it.  Well, maybe.  I do tend to state that everything is my favourite. But still.  This was incredible. Ingredients 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour plus 2-4 tablespoons for dusting 2 teaspoons instant yeast 2 teaspoons...

Turkey Stuffed Peppers

These stuffed peppers are loaded with flavor and make a great dinner with a salad on the side. Not all stuffed peppers are cooked in tomato sauce. I used ground lean turkey and rice for a healthy, low point meal. Also great with brown rice. Make extra so you can have leftovers for lunch. Ingredients 1 lb lean chopped turkey meat 1 garlic, minced 1/4 onion, minced 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro or...

Sundried Tomato, Spinach and Quinoa Egg Muffins

These are like mini omelettes but better! Filled with complex carbs from quinoa and healthy fats from flax or chia seeds, these egg muffins make a complete breakfast on-the-go or a snack. And I highly recommend making a double batch and freezing. These egg muffins are great for using up leftover quinoa, wilted spinach and old sun dried tomatoes sitting at the bottom of a big Costco jar. You could...
