There was a bit of a mix up in the July issue of NORTH magazine which resulted in the ingredient list of the Parmesan Smashed Potatoes not being accurate. Below you will find the complete recipe. Continue reading
Fresh cranberries slowly roasted in maple syrup and spices until they burst and the juices caramelize into a sticky, tart bite that brings warmth even on the snowiest winter day. Vanilla ice cream is a must. Continue reading
Brown rice flavored with sweet paprika and eggs that have been fried in coconut oil topped with hemp seeds, hot sauce and sour cream — only 10 minutes to food!
I complicate things. I try so hard to come up with good recipes for this blog, that I end up coming up with nothing at all and feel defeated. As soon as I step away and start cooking for myself and my own enjoyment again, things get tasty. I’m really going to focus on sharing the recipes for foods that I like to eat, instead of trying to guess what you like to eat.

I’m always on the lookout for savory breakfast ideas that go beyond potatoes and eggs. There’s more of a challenge for me personally, since my husband doesn’t eat meat.

I contemplated a lot of different fruits in replacement — blueberry? raspberry? blackberry? apple? So many good options! I settled on peach, since they’re in season right now and it was phenomenal. I can’t wait to start playing around with other options too. Continue reading
