Sweet Meets Spicy

I love having a large family. I love spending days getting my five kids to and from school, chasing after my toddler all day long, and then making sure everyone gets a full belly before the nighttime routine begins. The days are long, that's for sure. But, I truly wouldn't have it any other way.At the end of every day, I wholeheartedly look forward to a few minutes of "me time." I slip into my pajamas, go to the kitchen, prepare a warm mug of TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods in my Keurig®, and sit down for a nice quiet evening with The Bachelorette or a good book. There’s something about the rich, creamy taste of an authentic TAZO® Chai Latte, with every sip providing a spicy and sweet escape. And, goodness knows, I'm looking for an escape at the end of each and every day.What is a … [Read more...]

Chickpea vegetarian burgers

I think that burgers are one of the most satisfying foods on earth, even when they are not made out of meat and can be called healthy. My favourite thing about vegetarian burgers is the extra add-ins, and this recipe surely doesn't miss any: grilled cheese, guacamole and caramelized onions (of course any extra would just make these burgers even more delicious). I would have liked to use a heartier bread, but I couldn't find any at my local shop this morning! I think that any wholesome home-made or store bought bread would pair very well with the chickpeas. The burgers themselves taste like falafel and can be flavoured with any spice mix and seasonal greens. These burgers are perfect for a spring/summer weeknight dinner or for a vegetarian option at a barbecue along with some roasted sweet … [Read more...]

Buckwheat crepes with caramelized bananas

I have always considered myself more of a pancake person than a crepe person, maybe for the simple fact that when I wake up on a lazy morning making pancakes seems the easiest and fastest delicious thing to make. However, when I am craving a pancake at 9 pm, crepes are definitely fancier than pancakes and more appropriate to eat for dessert. Buckwheat crepes are a little bit heavier than ordinary crepes but they also have a nuttier and deeper flavour, in my opinion, in France they are usually eaten with eggs and ham for a savoury snack, the sweet version is quite difficult to find in restaurants but I think that buckwheat pairs very well with caramel. The batter is pretty easy to put together, the tricky part of making crepes is the cooking: a good nonstick skillet and a rubber spatula are … [Read more...]
