(Very) Vanilla Persimmon Jam: Toast Topper #59
If you absolutely had to choose, which flavour would you cut out from your life forever - chocolate, or vanilla? I'm solidly in the chocoholic club, and while I'd miss the rich, floral notes of vanilla bean in unadorned ice cream, pudding and cake, it's so ...

Low n' Slow Baked Asian Pears
One of the best things about biting into an Asian pear is their crunchy, almost explosively juicy nature. They're totally unassuming on the surface, unlike peaches which - when perfectly ripe - demand you be over the sink or outside to break into. No, Asian...

Toast Topper #58: Peach-Mango Jam
Even though the warmer weather is starting to arrive around here, it's no secret that Summer is still a long way off. In a way, that's a blessing - I've only just started my heirloom tomatoes (and haven't touched my squash seeds yet), plus the fact that Jun...

Sourdough Chunk Cookies #SundaySupper Picnic!
Happy Sunday! I'm personally astonished that it's almost the end of April now... where has the time gone? All of a sudden the snow has melted away and even a good portion of the mud "ponds" have dried up into mere puddles, and when the forecast calls for pr...

I am a total trivia nut. When I find myself intrigued by a certain subject or hear the mention of something I'm unfamiliar with, I'm almost immediately gripped by the need to find out not just the definition, but to learn everything I can about it. Encyclopedias, compilations of articles or ...

Moroccan Chicken and Saffron Soup
I was really hoping to make it through the rest of the school year without getting sick, but life definitely has other plans! Luckily, we're big soup eaters here, and a bowl of broth is never too far away, ready to be jazzed up with whatever my stomach can ...

Bringing Good Taste to Healthier Food
Introduction
I started my "working life" as a holistic and allopathic nutritional consultant with a love of cooking. Teaching the value of wholesome meal choices to families became close to my heart after I battled a long history of struggles with weight and health, and the passion for teaching led me into where I am now. My blog, which focuses on "bringing good taste to healthier food" through creative use of whole grains, fresh produce and acknowledging the importance of the occasional treat, also features a wealth of "specialty diet" friendly recipes for gluten-, egg-, dairy- and sugar- tree nut-free items that everyone can enjoy without alienating those who need them.

Overall, I want to bring back the desire for good quality, homemade, (mostly) healthy food into the hearts and kitchens of families so that the next generation will be less box-reliant than mine. I firmly believe that any “homemade” food, even when labelled as "naughty", is a more wholesome treat than pre-packaged, cookie-cutter junk. With the knowledge of good food (and how to cook good food) as a base, a healthy lifestyle can follow, and then anything is possible!

Today, my love for teaching is branching out even further - I'm in Montessori training to solidify my love for the system and working with children and families!
