This colourful bowl is a replica of a salad I ordered earlier this summer in a fancy restaurant in North Vancouver. We’ve met some really cool people here in BC and we enjoy hanging out with them because we share the same passion for delicious food. But we also like it when the portions being served are satisfying! When my mango & kale salad arrived, I was quite shocked….it was not even a quarter of what you can see on the pic below!
Starting the new season with a smoothie detox is always a great idea! I’ve tried a lot of funny smoothie recipes in my life, most of them I haven’t posted on the blog because they belonged to the green monster category (and could be barely swallowed). Anyhow, this kale + pineapple combo WAS a success: both super tasty and refreshing!
Kale is so much more than this green piece of frilly lettuce that gets even greener once you cook it. Raw or cooked, I love this veggie so so much because the taste is quite unique. And when you know how packed with all the good vitamins and minerals (manganese, calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium) it is, you love it even more.
Every year around Thanksgiving, there is a festival of pumpkin taking place in my kitchen. And that’s because I want to taste each sort before the season is gone. Today was the acorn squash’s turn to make an entry in my kitchen and the recipe I’m about to give you more details about did not disappoint!
The food blogger community is so inspiring! I was looking for fresh salad ideas the other day and landed on Kathryn’s beautiful blog “Cookie and Kate”. For the anecdote, Cookie is the name of her cute dog who happens to enjoy eating raw kale like me! Kate, your dog and I should meet!
Since I added miniature cookie cutters to my cooking utensils, I'm having so much fun. Playing around autumnal colour, I've created this salad to remind me that summer time is always around the corner. Although I love preparing delicious soups when the cold season arrives, I will always prefer summer and eating salads!
