in pursuit of more

living with just a little less

This burger was a major hit in a lot of ways and I just had to share it with you all here. Judging by the recipe list here on the blog, it's clear that burgers are not a major staple in the house, but anytime I can get my husband to eat quinoa, then I consider the recipe to be a major winner.

First of all, I can honestly say I've never met a bowl of lentils and rice I didn't like. Last year, I spent quite a bit of time thinking of new creative ways to cook rice and lentils together, which culminated in this delicious meal that has been a popular one on the blog (even if it is just for that delicious sauce).

Every time I visit her, I realize once again how good this recipe is - and…

Ah, this salad. This is one of my favourites that I've literally been making for years. So many years in fact that you (those dear readers of mine who have been with me from the start) may have even seen it here before - as I had posted this recipe in the early days and it was removed when I shuffled posts around and removed…

This salad is the result of last week's trip to the Farmer's Market here in Vancouver, where I was pleasantly surprised by the haul I got for the seemingly very little money I spent. The produce this year is just incredible, from the berries and cherries to the greens and veggies that are overflowing everywhere. We're still eating tidbits from the market trip almost a week…
