peach salad

Every time the weather starts to perk up, a new signature salad generally makes its way to my table.

If you want to make this on a weeknight and don’t have much time, you can […] Read more…

 

Snow Crab with Herbed Mayo and Crusty Bread

Oftentimes, simple meals really are the best. When things get a little hectic — as they tend to in the new school year (whether or not your have kids going back to school!), I turn to good old fashioned simple meals with big flavours and little effort. Whole Foods carries already prepared and cooked snow […] Read more…
