Curry Squash Soup

Amazing curry squash soup.

Curry Squash Soup



3 pounds of butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
10 cups of liquid
1 medium onion, diced
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
!/2 teaspoon tumeric
1 cup coconut milk

1. Peel, seed, and cube your squash. Make sure cubes are the same size so that they cook evenly. Add squash to your liquid. Cover and bring to a boil. You can use any type of squash. I usually use butternut squash.


Coming Full Circle

One of my favourite childhood desserts.


Isn't it funny how life comes full circle!

Like many of you, we didn't have a lot of money growing up. Soup was a popular way for my mom to stretch the family food budget. Plus, we always had a huge vegetable garden to draw from!

To encourage us to suffer through Day 3 of soup for dinner, my mom would promise us aebleskiver for dessert. Dessert was a rare thing indeed. Aebleskiver? Heaven on earth. 


Season's Changing Gears

Cooler nights call for soup!


With the recent change in weather, comes the craving for a comforting bowl of soup!

While out and about the other day, my mom announced out of the blue, "I want soup for dinner."

With no time, what's a girl to do? Fortunately, here on the West Coast, we are surrounded by an abundance of hard working farmers producing a delicious bounty to choose from. I pulled in to a local farm stand on the drive home.

My brain is going, "Soup, soup, soup!" I spotted some beautiful butternut squash. Hmm. I seem to recall I had a recipe for that. 


Oatmeal Cookies

Rainy days call for cookies and milk.


There is just something about stormy days that draws me to the kitchen to bake.

My modified oatmeal cookie recipe ( which translates to things I ran out of ), is now my new favourite!

Besides, with the coconut oil, almonds, oats, cranberries, and walnuts, they are good for you, right?! They taste like they are good for me.

Better eat two. Okay, maybe three.

Crustless Kale Quiche

Russian red kale.


Volunteering in and of itself is rewarding. I also believe that what you give, good or bad, comes back to you tenfold. I must have done something right, because I really scored this past weekend!

I was selling carnations on Saturday for the MS Society and was teamed up with a delightful lady, Joyce Measor. In between the selling and the thank yous to everyone, we enjoyed quite a varied discussion. One subject of particular interest, to me anyways, was our discussion of kale.


Chicken Curry Soup

Delicious chicken curry soup.

One of my favourite White Spot dishes is their Chicken Curry Soup. Unfortunately, more often than not, when I am there for a meeting, my fav soup is not on the menu! I finally decided to just make it myself at home. I have played with and adjusted this recipe about three times now. It's much chunkier than the soup at the White Spot, but still delish.
