Parsnip Mini Loaves or Muffins (with GF option)

Well, I suppose it had to happen eventually. . . winter has finally arrived in Toronto. *Sigh*. I really, really would love to live somewhere that I don’t have to don at least 4 layers of clothing (that would include torso, head, hands, and feet) in order just to walk out […]


All About Stevia*

* with apologies to Bradley Cooper and Sandra Bullock (though from what I hear about the movie, they should be apologizing to us).

[Stevia-sweetened giant baked apple pancake]

How did it get to be Sunday already, and five days since my last post? Well, I haven’t been lounging around […]


Habit-Forming Raw Nori Rolls with “Salmon” Filling and Spicy Ginger-Miso Paste

Dogs really are creatures of habit, aren’t they? I mean, every morning at precisely 7:02 AM (about 1-1/2 minutes after the HH slams off his alarm), Chaser bounds into our bedroom and lays a wet sloppy one on the HH’s ear (translation: “Dad, it’s time to get up! Get up, Dad, […]


Flash in the Pan: Gingery Beet Salad

[Sometimes, you just want to eat something now. I’ve decided to offer a mini-post every once in a while, for a dish that comes together incredibly quickly or else is so easy to make that no recipe is required.

When’s the last time you stayed up past midnight? (Oh. Right–forgot. Discounting New Year’s Eve, that is).

Back when I was a freshman at university, I […]


Lighten Up: New Year Musings and Crimson Mousse

So. Are we sick of giveaways yet? 😉

Okay, I guess that the chance to win something you like–especially if it involves food you like–never becomes stale (even if the aforementioned foodstuff does). Still, with 2010 barely upon us, I’ve decided it’s time to give the giveaways a break. I love […]


Chocolate Giveaway Winners

Thanks to everyone–all 104 of you!–who entered the Chocolate Baking Kit and Bar giveaway!

As promised, I chose two random winners, one for the kit (from Canada) and one for the bar (from anywhere) by using Random.org–the first name to appear from my Home and Native Land won the kit, and […]


Yin for Yang: My Mother’s Marble Cake

I hope everyone had a rockin’* New Year’s Eve on Thursday night. The HH and I enjoyed a very relaxed, casual dinner at our place with my friend the Nutritionista and her husband (more Indian food, Caesar salad, and bubbly: the boys drank champagne; the gals had sparkling water and cranberry […]
