Savory Sweet Potato Casserole with Rosemary Pecan Parmesan

This holiday season, I decided to make us a savory sweet potato casserole with rosemary pecan parmesan.  I can’t really compare it to the traditional sweet version, but guys, this casserole is incredible! Believe it or not, but even Shaun, who dislikes sweet potatoes, loves this recipe. I know, it’s a Christmas miracle.  I tested this recipe over the weekend, along with a few other holiday recipes for the blog. While we had our first snow of the season, I stayed cozy inside, testing new recipes, listening to Christmas music, wrapping presents, binge watching This is Us on Netflix and doing some cleaning. Not to mention going on a hike the day after the snow. There’s nothing better than a walk in nature after having some fresh snow on the ground…

Chocolate Orange Fudge Cake (With a Secret Ingredient!)

Are you getting tired of desserts yet? I know I am. But before we get into all the healthy January recipes, I wanted to share one last sweet treat with you guys! I promise, it’s SO worth it. And it’s a great dessert for any New Years Eve party. This will be our dessert for sure! <— We’re having an introvert party at home, eating fancy pasta with cake and wine while playing board games. Yup, that’s my kind of party. Hah! All I have to say is that this has to be the healthiest cake ever. The secret ingredient? Sweet potatoes! It’s also made with dates, olive oil, coconut and almond milk, cocoa powder, cashews, spelt flour, orange juice… Not only…

Sweet Potato & Toasted Bread Winter Salad

Finally a savory recipe!!! Have you noticed that all of my recipes were desserts lately? Chai-Spiced Cut-Out Cookies, Dark Chocolate Mint Truffles, Easy Holiday Truffles, Creamy Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate… I’m not sorry about that at all, but it would probably be a good idea to share a healthy salad recipe once in a while. I suppose. This is actually the first salad recipe I share on the blog, so it was about time! And I think it’s a great one to start with. 🙂 Being a few days away from Christmas, I still wanted to share a holiday inspired recipe. So to make this a winter salad, I decided to add warm roasted sweet potatoes, pecans, dried cranberries and a white wine vinaigrette. Those are all winter salad ingredients in my opinion. Am…

Spiced Root Vegetable Soup

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend? We had a quiet weekend at home which was a nice change. Friday night, Shaun and I went for a small hike, then we had popcorn and wine while watching a movie. My idea of a perfect fall Friday night! Saturday, I stocked the fridge, did a bit of university work and baked some pumpkin cookies (the recipe is coming to the blog SO soon!). Finally, I spent most of Sunday cooking and cleaning. I love starting a new week with a clean house and a fridge full of prepared meals. I can certainly say that it was a productive weekend!   I don’t always take the time on Sundays for meal prep, but now that I’m busy with my internship from Monday to Friday, the weekend is the…
