What a better way to welcome spring that with a creamy asparagus and goat cheese quiche. A wonderful vegetarian, breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.

Asparagus & Goat Cheese Quiche

A good friend of mine posted a funny meme recently that read “When life gives you lemons, pray they’re Lulu”. I just had to shake my head and smile at her impeccably timing. Because when it’s 10 degrees outside and your brand new heater dies on you, you have no choice but to grab those […]

Chickpea & Wheat Berry Soup

Vacations are awesome. They allow you to relax, to take a break from your routine, to recharge your batteries. They are good for your body, for your mind and for your soul.  We all love them. And we most definitely need them. The downside? At some point, they have to end. And normally bouncing back […]

Vegan Cream Cheese & Beet Tart

“Ever since we were kids, we’ve always loved beets. Our mom used to serve them with just a drizzle of olive oil, lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt, usually as part of our festive Friday night meal. So when we moved here and learned how many people  absolutely despise them, we were truly shocked! […]

Date, Cocoa & Hazelnut Bars – No sugar Added!

I was recently in Israel visiting my daughter who is spending a year abroad.  Needless to say,  I went there with a whole bunch of presents…. but I also wanted to bring her something from home, something more comforting.  What to do? What to bring? Since she is one of our biggest fans and loves […]

Small Bites For The Big Game – Cheese, Spinach & Quinoa Bites

After blogging and creating recipes for almost 3 years now, we’ve discovered a very interesting fact: people LOVE bite size foods, especially when they’re made in muffin tins. And quite frankly, what’s not to love? Portion controlled, easy to eat, and best of all, super easy to prepare! You can pretty much make a “muffin” […]

Vegan Cauliflower Gratin

The “New Year’s Resolution Phenomenon” is quite interesting to watch. Especially from a fitness and nutrition perspective. We all know this is the time of year when  gyms are completely packed, and grocery stores can’t keep up with the demand of “cleansing” products like cayenne pepper, maple syrup and lemon juice. I wish people would […]

3 Bean & Sweet Potato Chili

 A couple of nights ago I had a pretty frightening nightmare: I was back in high school. And no, it wasn’t the typical I-realized-people-were-staring-at-me-cause-I-was-naked kind of nightmare. Even worse than that. I dreamed I was back studying for finals. History, Chemistry, Geometry… All of it! Just when I thought I had left it all behind […]
