First off, let’s all welcome Carlene back from a blogging hiatus with her Cherry Scones, hopefully she’ll stick around for a while!
We took a bit of a break from CTV appearances the last month, but wanted to come back for a timely garden cooking segment. Trying to figure out what I was going to cook, I ventured into a garden full of tomatoes, carrots, peas, beans, beets, zucchinis and more! After picking several different vegetables, I decided Zucchini was the way to go. There is tons of it every year and it usually just ends up in the typical zucchini breads or cakes, so I figured I would try something new – Zucchini Fritters!

Now maybe Ratatouille doesn’t need that many exclamation marks, but I was excited to make it and finally find out what it tastes like! After watching (and thoroughly enjoying) the Pixar film, I’ve always been curious what it was like! Well I wasn’t disappointed! All the vegetables melded together into some wonderful flavours. My only issue with this dish was the texture, but to combat some of the “mushiness” I chopped up some more fresh peppers and added it. This gave it another layer of flavour and added that much needed crunch (in my opinion).

Since we had a frost warning yesterday, I went out to the garden in my backyard to help my Mother pick all of the tomatoes, peppers and zucchinis so we had plenty of fresh vegetables in the house! After picking a few massive zucchinis I figured it was necessary use them in my lunch somehow, and thus this recipe was born!

I’ve been looking at a few roasted vegetable soups and been debating what to try and I settled on this hearty and healthy mix of veggies. So sit back, relax and enjoy a lovely cup of soup!
I think we’ve chatted about this on the blog before, but sometimes us foodies (aka. nickname for food bloggers out there), just don’t have the time or creative energy to make a huge dynamic & showy meal, well that’s where these quick and easy ones come in. Below is a quick (maybe 5-10 mins to make) pasta that’s healthy, light and full of protein.

I was recently craving chilli, but I’m not the biggest fan of ground beef, so when I stumbled upon some ground turkey at Wal-mart I knew this could satisfy my craving! I wanted to make a chilli that was filling, healthy and had a nice sweet warmth to it, so off into the kitchen I ventured.
