Poached Chicken Breasts with Leek Sauce and Baby Beets

Leek is a great Winter vegetable. It goes really well with chicken. The beets, while optional, bring a zest of sugary goodness.

Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken With Olives and Capers

The flavours here are clean, crisp, just a wee bit salty. The textures are varied. It's a really good dish that is simple to make.


Aioli is a glorious sauce, if you like garlic. Basically a garlic mayonaise, it originally comes from the South of France. Making your own is worth it.

Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche

Quiches are a tasty and affordable quick meal. This one doesn't have meat in it - but we don't always need meat.

Raspberry and Oat Bran Muffins

These muffins aren't too sweet. The sharp tang of the raspberry is very nice.

Leek and Potato Soup

Perfect for a cold Winter night - leek and potatoes are a classic mix for soup.

Panfried Chicken with Orange, Ginger and Coriander Glaze

Reducing liquids to make sauces make for intense and rich flavours, while keeping the sauce light. Orange, ginger and coriander work really well together here.


I was a vegetarian until I started leaning toward the sunlight.
