Kabocha squash slices are coated and roasted with a miso based sauce, then topped off with a hit of fresh lime juice, cilantro and sesame seeds. So easy! So tasty! So deliciously addictive!
Crunchy almonds, warming cinnamon and a hint of coconut… this pear crisp just might be the most delicious crisp E V E R. As it bakes and bubbles in the oven, the most delectable scent permeates through the entire house. I can’t even describe how good it smells… so make it for yourself and see!
Our maple tree has officially been stripped naked of it’s leaves and more water has fallen from the sky than I ever thought was possible. We are definitely in the middle of fall! Cabbage has been making it’s way into nearly every meal along with all of it’s seasonal companions. At this time of year this is my go to hash… the sweetness from the apples compliments the bitterness of the cabbage and it’s all cooked up with tender potatoes and sautéed onions. The perfect fall dish that can be eaten for any meal!
If you plant one thing in your garden, I think it should be garlic. A cool season crop that is easy to grow, low maintenance and immensely rewarding. Once you grow your own garlic, you’ll have a hard time going back to the store bought (often bleached and shipped from who knows where) varieties. There’s some kind of magic when it comes to growing garlic… you put a single clove in the ground and 9 months later you have a fully formed head with the most juicy and delicious cloves you’ve ever eaten!
Our first autumn on the east coast has welcomed us with all sorts of vivid shades of oranges, reds and yellows. And as the cool fall weather is setting there is nothing more comforting than a warm breakfast. The first time I had dutch baby was a little over six years ago, when my partner and I took a trip to the Kootenays to visit some of his family. Adrian and talked of dutch baby stating that it was one of his favourite breakfasts, but I didn’t quite understand what all of the fuss was about. What is a dutch baby anyways? Adrian’s step-mom, Jill, whipped one up on our first morning with them and I have been hooked ever since. The crispy edges, puffy and eggy texture makes the dutch baby somewhere between a waffle and a pancake. Simple to make, requiring only a cast iron pan and a blender, means that dutch baby the perfect dish for weekend brunch.
