Rustic Fig & Honey Goat Cheese Tart

The earth is quietly opening up around here. Today I looked at the teeny buds on the lilac bush in the front yard, and on the apple and plum trees behind the house. Tentative first steps of the beauty that lies ahead. It's been a warmer than usual spring. Typically there should still be snow ...

Le Sandwich: Croque Madame with Dijon Béchamel Sauce
Sometimes a sandwich can make your life.  True story.  And it doesn't have to be a particularly fancy one, piled high with vegetables and herbaceous spreads.  Honestly, just give me good meat and good cheese, tucked between good bread with a little bit of b...
Sometimes a sandwich can make your life. True story. And it doesn't have to be a particularly fancy one, piled high with vegetables and herbaceous spreads. Honestly, just give me good meat and good cheese, tucked between good bread with a little bit of butter and mustard.

Coconut Chia Pudding with Bluberry Ginger Compote
"One could not get enough of the nimble air.  Every morning I wakened  with a fresh consciousness that winter was over."  ~ Willa Cather Well my friends, we made it.  Another winter finished and into the books.  I know, I know, there's still snow on the gro...
Well my friends, we made it. Another winter finished and into the books. I know, I know, there's still snow on the ground and flannel sheets are still on the bed, but for all intents and purposes, spring is here. Hallelujah praise the lord. And I just did a few jumping jacks, ...

Braised Lentils and Chickpeas with Kale & White Wine
I love me a good challenge.  It seems like every so often I take a deep breath and do something tremendously brave that both excites and terrifies me, and no doubt keeps my mother awake at night.  Sorry mom!  I've gone and done it again, and fingers crossed...
I love me a good challenge. It seems like every so often I take a deep breath and do something tremendously brave that both excites and terrifies me, and no doubt keeps my mother awake at night. Sorry mom! I've gone and done it again, and fingers crossed I'll land on my feet like I always seem ...

For the Lovers: Meyer Lemon & Lavender Polenta Cake
"Love is a fire.  But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house,   you never can tell."  ~ Joan Crawford   Oh, that Joan.  But isn't it the truth?  When we fall in love we never know how it's going to turn out.  Perhaps it will only la...
Oh, that Joan. But isn't it the truth? When we fall in love we never know how it's going to turn out. Perhaps it will only last 5 days, or if we're one of the lucky ones, 50 years. All those butterflies and gushy smiles at the beginning often end with painful wails on the bathroom floor.

Chocolate Pistachio Energy Bites
Energy balls, bites, bars, whatever you call them, are everywhere.  And rightly so.  They are full of protein, fibre and other healthy nutrients that make the body run just that much smoother.  If you have a food processor, you can make your own in no time ...
Energy balls, bites, bars, whatever you call them, are everywhere. And rightly so. They are full of protein, fibre and other healthy nutrients that make the body run just that much smoother. If you have a food processor, you can make your own in no time flat, well, maybe just 5 minutes.

Rose Pavlova with Raspberry Pomegranate Sauce
"And the Spring arose on the garden fair,  Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;  And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast  Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest."  ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley Springtime in Saskatchewan.  You never know what you're g...
Springtime in Saskatchewan. You never know what you're going to get. Yesterday, as I was photographing this pavlova, the windows were open, furnace was off, sandals were on - showing off my freshly pedicured toes, and the cats were roaming the perimeter of the place, no doubt scouting for any ...

On the Cusp: Grapefruit & Olive Oil Pound Cake
"Just say yes and you'll figure it out afterwards."  ~ Tina Fey Cusp.  I like that word.  It's defined as the point of a crescent, like the moon, and a point that marks the beginning of a change.  Like, Renée is on the cusp of a new era.  Holy shit.  The pa...
Cusp. I like that word. It's defined as the point of a crescent, like the moon, and a point that marks the beginning of a change. Like, Renée is on the cusp of a new era. Holy shit. The past couple of weeks, well, the past month really, have been really terrifying and exciting.

Searching For Saskatoons
If you ask anyone who grew up in rural or small town Saskatchewan about Saskatoon berries, they have a story to tell.  I'm not talking about the conveniently cultivated U-Picks, where you park your car, grab your basket and head towards your allotted row.  ...
If you ask anyone who grew up in rural or small town Saskatchewan about Saskatoon berries, they have a story to tell. I'm not talking about the conveniently cultivated U-Picks, where you park your car, grab your basket and head towards your allotted row. Oh no. I'm talking about wild Saskatoons ...

Start Me Up: Smoked Salmon & Goat Cheese Quiche
"For last year's words belong to last year's language And next year's words await another voice.  What we call the beginning is often the end And to make an end is to make a beginning."  ~ T.S. Eliot Happy New Year! I hope 2015 is off to a grand start for a...
I hope 2015 is off to a grand start for all of you. It's only been six days, but I can feel it's going to be a good one - I hope you do too. I've been in full-on reflective mode. A new year always does that to me; thinking back to what all transpired within the last twelve months.
