Guys, I'm going to be straight with you here. As much as I love my slow-cooker, most days I am just not together enough at 7am to execute a slow-cooker recipe properly. Nor am I disciplined enough to get such a thing started sometime between dinner clean up and my...

FRESH SALADS

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Cranberry Salad

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Cranberry Salad

This Shaved Brussels Sprout and Cranberry Salad has a decidedly holiday twist with the dried cranberries and walnuts. I’ve used a very basic lemon dressing with a little honey to sweeten things up. Nothing crazy. This is easy stuff to throw together. This is one of my favourite ways to serve Brussels Sprouts — raw.

Orange and Cilantro Slaw

Orange and Cilantro Slaw

I ran 10 miles this weekend. Farthest I have ever, ever ran. I thought my knees were going to fall out. I hear Ottawa is a hilly place and I understand hills are hard on the knees. There are no hills where I live. It's as flat as a pancake. So I can't practice hills....

Mom’s Cucumber Salad

this recipe, slightly, otherwise this is the same salad my mom has been making since I was shorter than the countertops. Mom always adds sliced onion to the cucumbers. It is really good.
