My Life With Sourdough: Science and Intuition

Maintaining a healthy sourdough culture comes with a responsibility to care and nurture it throughout its’ life. My sourdough culture has been with me for over 20 years. It is a living organism that needs to be consistently fed and cared for.

In My Kitchen: Christine's Greek Style Stuffed Peppers

These are my Greek-style stuffed peppers. It is one of my favourite healthy weeknight meals. It is also a perfect serving for two people which is very convenient for me as I live on my own: I eat one serving and save the leftovers for an easy lunch the next day. You can also really change these up by incorporating many different kinds of flavours. This i are Greek-style, but you can change it up by using Mexican or Italian inspired ingredients or whatever your heart desires! There are also few dishes to clean—which helps keep things simple—and it is also a fun way to get your veggies in.

I probably eat pasta at least 3 days a week. Make a big batch at the beginning of the week and have leftovers for the rest of the week. Today's sauce was a quick and easy veggie sauce with rigatoni

IN My Kitchen: Heather's Allergy-Friendly Cookies

My daughter is currently doing a school project for which she is trying to create an allergy-friendly recipe collection that would suit her brother.  She is finding recipes online, mostly, then altering them to use ingredients that are dairy, nut and egg free and that we have in the cupboard already.

Here is one of her recipes and a picture of the cookies.  This one was already allergy-friendly but we didn’t have any non-dairy milk available so she found a substitute.

Figuring out something quick (and healthy) to have for supper is difficult at the best of times. Add three young kids on top of that and it makes the daily task seem impossible. Not to mention that our appetite for doing dishes in the evenings is pretty low.

Hi there. This is me making Bruschetta.  While you can make this anytime, it's a recipe I love making in the summer when tomatoes are in season. I love Italian cuisine and sometimes I pair this just with a small salad and voila!  Dinner!

This is a decadent breakfast option that is great to make ahead for brunch or Christmas morning. I have definitely skipped the rest time and baked immediately with the same delicious results. I have made many variations including apple/cranberry, apple/pecan and  pumpkin spice!

"For me, my favourite weekend dish is making potato scones for brunch. I'm not much of a breakfast cook but after trying these for the first time in the UK several years ago, I was sold. I had to learn how to make them! After several attempts, I think I finally got 'em right."
