Sweet and Spicy Roasted Acorn squash

  Tired of the same-old sides? When planning our weekly menu, I typically start by jotting down our favourite proteins.

Although, I really wish I could have brought some of the hot, sunny weather back home with me (how can it possibly be this cold and grey in August?!).  Instead, I’m sharing something with you that comes pretty close. During my…

Mini cauliflower crust margherita pizzas

Mini cauliflower crust margherita pizzas

Cauliflower Power Earlier in January on Global Montreal I spoke about the mighty cauliflower and how it was one of the foods to watch in 2014.
