I hate mushrooms, but this recipe actually makes them edible. Being diabetic, I was trying to develop recipes that make the foods I hate edible and came up with this one. Both my wife (who loves mushrooms) and I like this stew.
This is a twist on a simple Peruvian ceviche. The avocados add some bulk and a creamy texture, while tortillas make it quick and easy to eat. Save leftover juice as an excellent hangover cure.
This is a really great cucumber salad that’s light and flavorful and makes a great starter! Tastes fine as it is, but can be salted and peppered to taste, if desired. Just remember to add all ingredients and mix before adding in the tomatoes, as they are extremely delicate and do not withstand stirring very well once they are cut.
I am always looking for ways to add herbs from my small garden to my foods. I was so delighted to find that lavender and mint go well together in this mix. Happy eating!
I created this healthy recipe from scratch a few years ago, and it has always been a hit at parties. Now I am happy to share it and I hope you will enjoy it too! Garnish with cilantro sprigs and lemon wedges to serve.
This is made with callaloo leaves in the West Indies, but in Canada we often have to use spinach leaves, which is just as tasty.
We had this at my Grandmother’s house. She’s from Germany. If you like salt on your watermelon you’ll like this.
While this fruit salad won’t get you tipsy, it is so delicious you might not stop eating it! Variety of fruit in a light margarita-inspired dressing. Will keep chilled for a couple of days. Mango or jicama can be added if you don’t feel stuck to the original recipe.
This is a great way to use sweet potatoes and other staples you have laying around. Cooking for a Crohn’s husband, we’re always trying to find ways to cook vegetables down so he can still enjoy them. If necessary, thin with additional milk. Serve hot with a sprinkling of pepitas, if desired.
Greek-style lentil soup, popular during fasting times.
This is a tangy soup that my mother used to make. I couldn’t find another recipe like it, so thought I would write it down for my own sake and share it for others.
A lovely, fresh and spicy salad.
A sweet and tangy Caribbean summer fruit salad.
So fresh, crisp, inviting, and full of flavor. Tastes best using fresh organic ingredients. I always get rave reviews for this refreshing salad. Everyone loves the dressing and it’s just fresh lemon.
This meat is so good for sandwiches. I like to add a little fiber to it with some carrots and cut out some sugar by using mesquite sauce.
This is a great recipe for whatever fresh fruit you may have on hand and a good cheap white wine. It’s cool and refreshing and just complicated-looking enough to leave your guests wowed!
With its seasonal red and green, this salad is perfect for a summertime Christmas in Australia.

A very simple and quick way to cook plantain. The great taste and texture of the plantain is complemented well by the raisins.
This is a healthy and simple soup I whipped up for the Vitamix®. Can easily be made vegetarian or vegan by substituting vegetable broth and/or non-dairy milk. You can reserve some of the microwaved broccoli and potatoes and add them after blending if you like more substance to your soup. Enjoy!
