Broiled Grapefruit & Hazelnuts

Do you like desserts? Uh, duh. Do you like healthy desserts? Uh.....maybe? Well friends, this quick, sweet and healthy treat is my answer to the raging sweet tooth I on occasion battle. You too?  I know it's a struggle. I've been replacing fruits and natural sweets in place of more traditional (read: processed and full of refined sugars) treats for awhile now, and while sometimes nothing can truly replace a glorious donut or chocolate bar, the addition of these natural sweet snacks has actually lessened my sugar cravings.

Dumpling Squash & Baked Eggs

Well my friends, the season of the squash continues on in my kitchen. I currently have no less than 3 different varieties of the veg sitting on my counter at this very moment. But I'm not complaining, it's simply one of the "side effects" of trying to eat mainly local produce..in Canada..in the fall/winter. 

Zucchini + Herb Slaw

I threw this recipe together deep in the throes of a summer heat wave as a refreshing side dish. However, I have come to realize that it is an awesome side/condiment/ salad no matter the time of year! Zucchinis are also still (sorta) in season in Toronto so every weekly farm share delivery I get usually has about a pound of zukes.
