MANGO CASHEW SUNSHINE BITES

I made it. My bean dip and everything else has officially passed through security on all three legs of my journey to Kauai. I am writing this 30,000 feet above the blue ocean, about two hours (out of the thirty eight!) from our final destination. I have never been so excited to get off a plane in. …

SWEET PEA & PEARL ONION PESTO SMOTHERED ZUCCHINI NOODLES

I have such a special treat for you today. Since I am in the final stretch of writing my manuscript (!!!), I’ve asked Julie from the Alkaline Sisters to take over this week.

GREEN GIANT CILANTRO PESTO

Needing an infusion of brightness as we head into the darkness of winter? Here’s your fix: Green Giant Cilantro Pesto. I call it giant because the flavour of this luscious sauce is so enormous it will knock your wintery woolen socks off. Promise. And the bonus is that it’s totally versatile: I fold it into …
