Asparagus Quiche – without the crust

The other night I made dinner for a friend and I made the most delicious asparagus quiche. I just polished off another serving for lunch and it tasted even better today. I’ve made plenty of crustless quiches before but never with asparagus. I forgot how amazing asparagus can be. This is a pretty easy recipe…

Living Well: September is PCOS Awareness Month

It’s after ten at night on Monday and I’ve been sitting here most of the evening wondering what to write for my weekly health article when I saw an article trending on Twitter. I know. Twitter. It’s not my favorite place to pick up ideas from – but there it was. An article from Pop…

Searching for the perfect blueberry scone recipe

Here we are at Monday morning again. The weekend flew by! Yesterday was a quiet day. It was so cold outside and inside my condo. This morning – it’s PLUS SIX degrees. I refuse to turn my heat on based on principle. My diet was terrible this weekend. I felt tired and didn’t have much…

Tomato and kale pasta casserole (rice cooker edition)

I went a little overboard with purchasing tomato products this shopping trip. I got about a kilo of grape tomatoes, two cans of tomato paste (small) and two cans of stewed or crushed tomatoes. Oops. I didn’t realize it until I went to stock up my cupboard. Then I also added some ketchup and beans…

Roasted Veggies & Chicken

Fitness Tips: measuring progress – without a scale (repost)

Reposting as a reminder to myself since my scale is out to lunch. Well, that was a huge disappointment. I finally bit the bullet today purchased a replacement battery for my Weight Watchers scale. I’m inclined to think that the scale is not accurate. I know I’ve lost weight. I can feel it in my…

Daily tracker: I love kale!

Okay, I’m having a serious beef with wordpress. That’s now three posts that I’ve scheduled to post automatically at 11:00 am only to find out that no – these posts did not post as planned. Because somehow the time changed to 11:00 pm! Who the heck other than me, reads posts at 11:00 pm WordPress?…

Fitness Tips: the no bread challenge

Okay, okay. I know. I’m spamming your feed. But I just had a great idea while cooking up some lunch before heading out for the evening. I wanted to use my left over kale but didn’t have any chicken to go with. And I’m kind of tired of chicken this week. So, I opened my…

Baked Pork Chops with Veggies

This is an original recipe that I made for a friend the other night and she loved it. But tonight. I’ve got the meat marinating in the fridge and tonight, I’m going to bake the dish instead of frying – for something different. This is a great dish to make on a cold wintry day….
