My first waitressing job during university was at an eclectic little bistro called the Tomato Cafe, nestled in the Cambie neighbourhood of Vancouver. Originally owned and founded by Diane Clement (cookbook author and previous Olympic athlete), it was true serendipity that they hired me. The Tomato Cafe has had a profound influence on my perspective…
This Confetti Kale Salad is so colourful and absolutely packed with vibrant seasonal ingredients and nutrients to help keep you healthy and well-nourished as we move into cooler weather!
Acorn squash is cut into pretty slices, tossed with a few simple ingredients and roasted to perfection for an easy, showy and delicious side dish in under 30 minutes!
This Summer Squash Pasta Salad is the perfect lunch or dinner side dish to help beat the heat. The mix of yellow and green zucchini really makes the colours pop and is oh-so-pretty to look at!
Pasta – it has to be the ultimate comfort food. I’ve always loved a good carbonara: such perfect simplicity. But also SO rich. I created a lighter, healthier version here with a Butternut Squash Carbonara that is so satisfying and flavourful!
