Tempeh Toast


I’ve had Tempeh in my freezer forever.  Whose Line Is It Anyway’s Jeff Davis told me to marinate it and make a sandwich, so I did.  Just marinate the tempeh in some olive oil and soy sauce (or whatever marinade you love), fry it up, and toss it with some salted avocado and tomato on […]



…are amazing! I had no idea. Just pop these tangy little suckers in your mouth and eat them whole; zest, seeds and all – lots of fibre and vitamin C. That’s it, no recipe, just sour, citrusy, natural candy that I felt the need to make you aware of. (Kathy)

Butter Tarts


Every 3rd person in Canada says they make the best butter tarts. But I’ve got news for you, and I think you know where I’m going with this, they’re wrong. I make the best butter tarts. I don’t say this lightly. I love butter tarts, and I’ve tasted some great ones that almost win, but […]

Mairlyn’s Frozen Yogurt


This is SO easy, SO delicious, SO healthy and SO kid friendly it’s ridiculous.  Our friend Mairlyn Smith writes wonderful cookbooks, and this quick breakfast/snack/dessert is worth sharing.  Ready?   Take 2 cups of frozen fruit and 1 cup of vanilla yogurt and blend it all in a food processor.  You’re welcome.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds


Yum.  Possibly my family’s favourite part of Hallowe’en, Put your pumpkin seeds in a bowl, melt some butter, pour it over the seeds, add salt, stir, spread on a baking sheet, and bake at 300 for about 45 minutes.  So good. (Kathy)

Sally’s Broccoli Casserole


I’m re-posting this because I’ve already started to cook for Thanksgiving dinner, (Canadian), and this is now in my freezer waiting for the weekend.   Embarrassing recipe, awesome dish. Okay, this is as white trash as it gets. This is for all of us who grew up in the suburbs and were weaned on meals […]



Just a few edible flowers to go with our blueberry- mint lemonade after a lovely lunch at Killarney Lodge in the middle of Algonquin Park.  Another day in the life of Women Fully Clothed.   (aaaand back home to order pizza).  (Kathy)

Dumplings in Chicken Stock


This is, by far, the most requested lunch in my house. My kids come home and ask for it almost every day. Of course, we live in Canada and we’re still dealing with ice storms, so it’s understandable. My mom was in the hospital recently and she also requested that I bring it to her […]
