It's summer and strawberries are everywhere. I've had a punnet sitting in my refrigerator for a few days and I didn't know what to do with them. Instead of using them in some guilty pleasure dessert (like, say, a strawberry cheesecake), I decided to incorporate them into my new breakfast favorite: pancakes.

I have been on a shrimp and noodle kick the last few days. It falls under the 30 minute meal mark for me because noodles and shrimp cook pretty fast. I decided to revisit one of my favorite noodle dishes from the past, Singapore Noodles.

This dish was inspired by my craving for macaroni and cheese, having no actual macaroni in the house, and wanting to make a dish that would coincide with the theme of the month–spices. Use your chili or chile powder of choice!

Corn bread is a weakness for me, but I don’t eat it enough for sure. My hubby is weird, and doesn’t like corn bread-corn flour-corn cake…….you get the picture. When I made this recipe, I wanted to add in anything you can find at a farmers market.

A silky puree of zucchini, onions, fire-roasted chiles, oodles of cilantro, a touch of mint, a corn tortilla, and a generous squeeze of lime, this soup tastes greater than the sum of its parts. It's complex, lively, refreshing, nourishing, and green, green, green.

Anyhow, I know how popular cupcakes are at parties. Are they not super popular at parties? So for a house party yesterday night, I decided to make up a delicious cupcake combination.

We are having some real nice weather. People are flocking to beaches or camping to take advantage of the well deserved sunshine. And those who are not lucky enough to take some time out, pitch up their tent in backyard and feel like a camper.

Chef PickyKid actually tried this recipe and said, “It’s kind of okay!” which is quite a compliment coming from her!

I think there’s a misconception that quesadillas are plain and humdrum. Does THIS look plain or humdrum to you?

They aren't kidding around with this name. It's gooey. Ooey gooey. The middle is gooey, the crust is even a little gooey.

Beef Korma is a delicious curry dish slow cooked to perfection. This is best served on a bed of fluffy rice, and with poppadoms.

Tomatoes.I seriously love my tomatoes. I wait in anticipation for tomato season like no other produce season. I savor the first bite of the vine ripened tomato, I can in order to save that flavor throughout the winter, and when I occasionally need a tomato fix (to make guacamole) during the winter, I make sure I’m purchasing slave free-tomatoes (usually from Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods.)

Because of the insanely oppressive heat wave that has washed over Ontario this summer, I decided that a cool and refreshing salad was in order. And not knowing exactly what types of dietary needs the guests had, I thought that taking the gluten-free, nut-free, vegan route would be the most considerate.

I love the pairing of beef with broccoli in this dish! With only 20 minutes of marinating time for the meat, this meal is a great choice for a night when you’re a bit pressed for time.

In case you want to know what I’ve been eating every day this week, it’s this Skinny Garlic Fried Rice. I doubled the veggie amount and still loved it! It just depends on how much rice you want in with the whole thing.

I remember cafeteria lunches.In elementary school, I probably just threw most of the food out. But the real gem, when it was available, was apple crisp. Sure, you had to order it with all the not-so-great “real” food, but it was worth it for the apple crisp.

I combined unsweetened coconut flakes with some breadcrumbs and curry powder for a crunchy, sweet and spicy treat.

You may be familiar with the version using cream of mushroom, celery or chicken soup. Not my style–although I’m not averse to keeping a few cans of soup in the pantry for emergencies. I wanted a recipe that was fresh all the way.

Everyone who has seen or heard about our garden, is always so impressed that we even put one in this year. It was the first thing on my to-do list and this green bowl is the first proof that it was definitely worth our efforts.

In the summer, all the area around Naples (I grew up in Sorrento) makes fritto misto, a mixed fried antipasto that can include a variety of seafood, vegetables and herbs, deep fried in a yest batter, which goes under the name of pasta cresciuta (pastetta or pastella).
