Creating classic yet healthy all time favourite mashed “potatoes” recipe, I had a few things in mind: Thanksgiving is upon us. If you don’t know, Thanksgiving in Canada is celebrated in the 1st half of October vs. at the end of November in the US. Every time I start looking for pumpkin in American stores at the end of August, I get weird blonde looks. I hate peeling vegetables. I wanted the mashers to be yellow. I was going after light, airy and fluffy texture. That’s why I…

Today is not a story day. Today is super awesome Thai turkey meatballs day! I got my new dishwasher that can even make Thai meatballs.:) In all seriousness, we have a deal: I make the meatballs and he does the dirty job. And he knows his job really well.

Can’t believe it’s August 1 already?! On a good note, it means zucchinis are in full bloom and are available super cheap at your local market. A couple of nights ago we stopped at a local fruit & veggie stand and I grabbed 5 lbs of these imperfectly perfect zucchinis. $1 per 1 lb. Love local non-GMO food! I’m a fan of Eggplant Parmigiana, but love zucchini so much more (hi, Parmesan zucchini sticks). A couple minutes of thinking and Light Zucchini Parmigiana Recipe was born – layers of…
