This is my last semester of classes before I finish my Masters degree. While I still have a practicum to finish and thesis to write I am beginning to feel like I am close to the end. In honor of this ending, I wanted to really celebrate the student life this summer, by this I mean not working full time. One of the many activities I have scheduled is volunteering at the farmer’s market for a small certified organic farm called Klippers Organic Acres!

Halibut Steaks with Sour Cherry and Arugala Salad
June 5th, 2012
Oh man this dish is so delicious too bad my image doesn't really do it justice! I can't wait until we have fresh local blueberries and cherries again. The salad is delicious on its own as well. For the tarragon mustard use my probiotic-rich Date-Mustard recipe and just add tarragon to it. ...
Nectarine and Rocket Salad
June 4th, 2012
This is one of my all time favorite salads. Very simple. Slightly under-ripe nectarines make a great substitute for tomatoes--sweet and sour with just enough firmness not to turn to mush when you mix it. The sweet-sour flavor of the nectarines goes just divinely with the peppery rocket leaves. A ...

I had a great time reworking the menu to use local produce and really got to know the markets of Rangoon. This was one of our favorite appetizers--it even got written up in Conde ...
Hemp Hearts Salad
January 21st, 2011
I have a couple friends that are doing detox or cleansing treatments after the holidays, to set their bodies on a healthy course for the next year, and perhaps lose some weight gained through all the holiday feasting. I hadn't given much thought to doing one myself, since I feel I generally keep a h ...

HD 204 – Urban Antipasto
September 8th, 2010
I am fortunate to have a long and narrow balcony that gets good sun and has a fantastic view of downtown Vancouver as well as the mountains. Mishka, our hungry cat, just loves to sit on the balcony and feel as if she owns the world. Homegrown tomatoes, eggplant, mozzarella and herbs make an e ...
