Figgy Oatmeal Cookies

Quite often in the past couple of months I have heard the question, “Do we have any cookies in the house?” My response has always been negative but on more than one of these occasions I’ve thought to myself that I should make some type of healthier cookie than I could buy in most stores.…

The Goodness of a Killer Tuna Sandwich

Change is a good thing and now is the best time for change in order that I refocus, and in doing so I want to share my recipe for a Killer Tuna Sandwich. Last weekend after the first long walk of 7.25 km that I’ve taken in over a year, I took a look around…

Cinnamon squash and tomatoes for pasta

Nearly a year ago I had a hankering for something different, some type of comfort food. I wasn’t sure what I wanted. I looked around the kitchen and I could see some tomatoes left from the garden, I figured I would cook up something different with them, but I wasn’t certain what. Then I recalled…

Not your standard breakfast: Lentils, roasted garlic and broiled avocado

I was up before the sun this morning and I had a hankering to do something different in the kitchen. I could hear the rain beating against the window pane and I knew that I had no desire to head outside until it got a little lighter, but would have to get out and get…

Apple, Potato and Egg Bake

Last night as I was getting ready for bed I realized I wanted to try a different mix of flavours. While I know russet patatoes are better for baking than white patatoes, it was the latter  which I had on hand. I had just seen a recipe for carmalized apples as a filling for crepes…

Went out for my walk this morning and it is very clear to me that autumn is definitely here to say, and what follows this season is the one many of us dread, while others make the best of winter. As I returned home I walked around the back of the house, picked some of…

Hummus with a bit of a bite…

Yesterday as I was writing up my long story about how to use what was on hand I had a number of different types of beans cooking. The black turtle beans were to be used for dinner this evening, but the chick peas and white navy beans were going to experience a different fate. They…

Making good with what’s on hand!

Yesterday I took a quick look in the refrigerator to see what I had on hand, in fact I kind of felt like Old Mother Hubbard felt when she opened her cupboard, though I wasn’t looking for a bone for my dog, but something to put to use before for it would spoil and I…

Pasta Tomato and Sardines Bake

Today is UN International Food Day, and with that being so, why not share something simple I whipped up yesterday after being out for my second walk of the day. I was feeling a little peckish and I wanted to make sure I was going to be getting my protein that along with other nutrients…

Helping out a friend… and Grandmothers everywhere!

As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts I made a decision on a life style change a year ago from the day I started this blog. It wasn’t easy, but it was a choice I had to make. Along the way I have found a number of ways of staying motivated, but there…
