I often wonder how many brilliant culinary creations are the result of neglected ingredients for which someone had no other use.

Living in the most multi-cultural city in the world certainly has some advantages. Most obviously, we are blessed with the myriad perspectives of different people from all corners of the globe who come together in Toronto to work, live and play.

Yes, it is currently almost a week after Valentine’s Day (did you see the lovely flowers the HH got for me, after my oh-so-subtle prodding?), and I’m just posting my recipe from New Year’s Eve. Sure, you might think, “Wow, that Ricki is really slow at posting her recipes!” But what […]

Here’s today’s “Flash in the Pan.” (For other FitP recipes, see “Categories” at […]
It’s been months in the making, but I’m thrilled to announce that my latest ebook, Good Morning! Breakfasts without Gluten, Sugar, Eggs or Dairy is finally here!
