How do you start your morning? I'm still working on putting 15 minutes aside to meditate every day (work in progress) but you can bet that my mornings start with a latte and just before I head to crossfit, a smoothie.
What's the best falafel you've ever had? For me that has to be the ones at a Middle Eastern shop on the east side of Toronto where they make them to perfection. Golden brown on the outside, spiced with cumin, and never dry. I usually have about 2 or 3( actually make that 4 or 5) with tons of spicy hummus, a garlicky tahini sauce and tabouleh. That dish my friends, sums up my idea of heaven. True food for the soul.
Besides waffles on Sundays, one of our favourite traditions at home is our weekly pizza nights. The girls and I have kept it for years, and usually includes a movie too ( isn't that combo the best ?)
I remember being pregnant with Isabella and having ALL the cravings for veggie hotdogs. Back then I keep it simple with ketchup and mustard. Later on I would add caramelized onions, a bit of feta and avocado (just typing this makes me want to have that exact combination;)
Hard to believe this is the first frittata that has made it to the blog! This is after all, our go to at home and one that we love having for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
It starts by opening the fridge and seeing what could be used for ingredients. This is by the way, how I cook at home. Stocking up on essentials that help me put a meal together in no time. The perfect example of this food philosophy would be this Summertime frittata.
I've created this list of tips to set you up for success on your frittata endeavours :)
BBQ Season brings many get togethers and for someone who doesn't eat meat this always brings up the question of what should we make for you? We could have veggie burgers? Don't get me wrong, I love a good veggie burger, but when I became a vegetarian and hadn't figure out my cooking skills, I lived on soy burgers. Eventually I started experimenting with recipes, and once I started including fish in my diet ( thanks pregnancy cravings!) I gave my trusted veggie burgers a pass and fish burgers became my thing.
