Vegetarian French Onion Soup

Vegetarian french onion soup. One of my all-time favorite soups. Probably because it includes cheese and bread… Also because it reminds me of our trip to Mexico two years ago (has it really been two years!?). You may be wondering why I think of Mexico whenever I have French onion soup? It’s not exactly a Mexican dish… Let me explain. Shaun won a trip from work two years ago and we treated ourselves to a beautiful resort in Mexico. At our resort, we had a few restaurants to choose from every night, all of them included in our stay. Of course, we tried them all (except for the sushi place… Sorry, I’m not a fan of sushi). There was an Italian, a French and an American restaurant, all of which were amazing. Our favorite dish was the…

Curried Roasted Carrot & Cauliflower Soup

The past two days have been gray and wet and I’ve been craving some cozy soups – This curried roasted carrot & cauliflower soup was just what I needed.  Soup has been a big part of my diet over the last few stressful weeks. I’m feeling more and more anxious with my dietetic exam coming up in exactly one month now. There’s something comforting about soup and I’ve been turning to this easy meal now more than ever.  I honestly haven’t felt this anxious in two years and I did not miss this feeling. For this reason, I’m trying to prioritize self-care a little more – Something that I sadly ignored over the last few months. It’s sad how we need to feel…

Lemon Sweet Pea Hummus

Today I’m sharing the recipe for this delicious spring-inspired lemon sweet pea hummus.  When I’m not trying a hummus recipe from one of the few cookbooks I own, I usually just throw all the ingredients in the food processor and hope for the best. It’s one of those recipes that I made so many times that I can just guess the amount of each ingredient needed. It helps that hummus is a very simple dish that can be made many different ways, while still tasting great. Don’t get me wrong, it is possible to make bad hummus (been there!), but today, I’m sharing a good one. Like most hummus recipes, this one is very simple. Just throw all the ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender…

Creamy Mushroom and Dumpling Soup

I’m exhausted.  Who can relate? It probably doesn’t help that we lost an hour of sleep last weekend, but to be honest, this internship is getting the best of me. With only a few months left, I feel obligated to give it all I have. It seems however that the more this internship goes on, the more tired I’m getting and the busier I get. I have so many recipes to share with you guys, yet so little time to write a post. I suppose there’s something about working over 40 hours a week, spending a few hours every night studying, then taking some time to exercise and develop some recipes that can make a person exhausted. So instead of being the perfectionist that I’ve always been, I&#8217…

Cheezy Whole Wheat Spiced Garlic Flatbread

It’s the Super Bowl weekend and I’m sharing a last-minute recipe for the occasion.  The truth is, I couldn’t care less about the Super Bowl (sorry, it’s true). I’m not one to watch sports and honestly, I don’t even own cable. My television time is limited to a couple of Netflix shows, so owning cable felt like a waste of money for us. Shaun however, is a big football fan. He did play football in high school and unlike me, he will be watching the Super Bowl.  So for those of you who are planning to watch the big game, I have a great healthy recipe for you to try! I know that people don’t usually care about anything being healthy during the…
