Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks.

Lamb, although not super popular here in Canada, has to be my favourite.
The ads in Australia are pretty funny too however one recently caused quite a stir.


What do you make of it?

Regardless of your opinions on the advert. This recipe will be a favourite in your house hold, if you eat meat… that is :/

Healthy Christmas Pies.

Ok, so in our newsletter It was mentioned this would be as easy as a sugar cookie… I may have been telling a white lie BUT shopping for these ingredients will be worth the result.
I am not usually even a fan of the mince pie and could never understand how some people can’t go a Christmas without them being served but these, these were delicious!

The recipe was given to me and I am so thankful to have tried them. They will be making an appearance on my family dinner table this Christmas.

Baked Zucchini Balls.

Sometimes I feel like I have the fussiest eaters on earth, for children. I legit wonder how they have the endless energy they do, fueled by nothing but a few dried, plain cheerios for breakfast. My 7 year old daughter likes to tell everyone how she’s a vegetarian, when in reality she won’t eat meat unless it’s been processed to the point where it no longer tastes like meat. Then there’s my 3 year old son; he cries when i make him a meal he doesn’t like, but then will also cry if i tell him I’ll eat it. Yes friends, I’m an asshole parent.
So I decided to try something different in an attempt to please them, Baked Zucchini Balls. They appealed to 1.5 out of 2 kids, I say 1.5 because my boy decided 2 zucchini balls in that he suddenly didn’t like his meal and proceeded to regurgitate it onto the plate and surrounding areas….he consumed half his meal so I’ll call that a win.

Detoxifying Chopped Salad.

I don’t know about you but if you have children who recently went Trick-or-Treating and returned home with a bag full of chocolates, it takes every bit of will power (in me, at least) to not sneak a few after they’re in bed. It’s really tough. I have to inspect and shuffle through a mountain of these full size cookies and cream and Kit Kat bars and all i can think about is “Which one will they not notice is missing?”

Roasted Red Pepper Prawns with Chickpeas.

Last week I spoke briefly about my intense denial about summer being over, nothing has changed… You see, I grew up taking summer’s for granted, I grew up by the ocean.
Almost all of my most favourite memories involve the beach. As a kid, most of my shoes carried sand in them, camping was always by a beach, I chose beach fitness for school sport on Thursdays and I was practically a marine biologist by Grade 3, able to rattle off the name of any crab or sea creature lurking in the rocks.  When I moved to Canada I shook the sand from my shoes, but it never left my soul. “Fish and chips” will always fit my macros, actually ANY seafood will and this is how I got to making a prawn (or shrimp as it’s called here) dish. I’ve been missing the heat, got all nostalgic and craved seafood.
With that, I bring you…
