asparagus + gruyère strata

I have a vague memory of asparagus growing in my parents’ back yard in Vancouver. Not a lot of it, just a handful of spindly stalks poking up each spring in the raised garden bed beside the garage. Asparagus is a perennial crop, so I’m sure it was planted at some point in ancient history…

swiss chard and gruyere strata

A savoury and comforting make-ahead dish with layers of whole grain bread, swiss chard, and gruyere cheese baked in an eggy custard. Somehow the equinox slipped past me this year. Maybe because the weather in Stockholm has been somewhat autumny for a while now. Or maybe because I’ve had other things on my mind. But…

egg salad with celery and dill

A simple egg salad with celery and dill. Perfect for a quick, easy, and nutritious packed lunch.  I went for my first outdoor swim of the year this morning. Stockholm has had a less than pleasant spring, so the air was cold and my feet went painfully numb on the barefoot walk from the pool…

Spicy harissa paste, chewy halloumi cheese, and salty capers come together in this quick and easy one-pan frittata that’s perfect for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

kale and white bean tortilla

A riff on a Spanish-style tortilla featuring ribbons of Tuscan kale and replacing the traditional potatoes with heart-healthy cannellini beans. Five years ago today I said a tearful goodbye to my husband as he walked through the gates of the Vancouver International Airport to board a flight to Minneapolis, then Amsterdam, then Stockholm. I returned…

baked eggs with spinach and ricotta

Our clocks changed yesterday. I kind of forgot it would be happening, and of course the clock I keep by my bed is actually my phone, and that changes automatically. So I thought I was getting out of bed pretty early yesterday morning, and it wasn’t until I was going to make my second cup…

sweet potato strata with smoked gouda and leeks

“The way sunset is to the day, October is to the year” A friend of mine posted this quote on Facebook recently, and I thought it was both lovely, and true. It does seem that the sun is well and truly setting on the year now. These days I’m waking up in darkness, and finding…

toast for dinner – smashy smashy

Lately I’ve been making lists of various things I could put on toast and reasonably call dinner. This is what one does when one is one-week from thesis deadline, right? Make lists of terribly important things. Much more important than working on one’s thesis, right? So we’re in a toast-for-dinner situation, and I thought I’d share…

kale and black bean breakfast tacos

I read today that all any good, nutritious, and budget friendly meal needs is a grain, a bean, and a green. I couldn’t agree more. There are few things I find as comforting as having a big ol’ pot of beans cooked up and on standby in the fridge. Except maybe a big ol’ pot…

curried devilled eggs

Have I told you before that I hate Easter egg hunting? Like, for real hate it. Am traumatized by it. Why? Because I can’t find the dang eggs. Can. Not. Find. Them. In my house Easter egg hunting was a colour coded thing. My Dad would hide eggs in the living room, then each child would…

white bean tortilla with piri piri

By the time you are reading this I will have gallivanted around the Cinque Terra, and have probably eaten and drank my own body weight in olives, bread, pasta, and wine. Ahhhh. Did you follow along on Facebook? We’re spending one night back in Stockholm before we head to BC, to the place where my soul lives,…

quinoa crusted mini quiches

I’ve had grain salads on the brain lately, and I’ve been trying to come up with a jazzy new quinoa salad to share with you all. Greek style quinoa salad? Quinoa salad with grilled veggies? Quinoa fruit salad for breakfast? I dunno, it isn’t coming to me. But! While I was trying to brainstorm quinoa…

thursday night fry

I conducted a bit of a Friday-night-in-the-kitchen-with-a-bottle-of-wine kind of interview with my  husband before I wrote this post, and I’ll say, it never ceases to amaze me (in a good way) how much I still don’t know about that man. I’ve known Paul for a little over eight years now, and he’s been eating the…
