This taco pie is hearty and packs a punch for those nights you crave comfort food but without all the heavy carbohydrates.

Mexican food lovers in Canada all know what fast-food restaurant I’m TACO’ing about! These days Mexican style franchises are popping up all over Ontario from Mucho Burrito to Quesada Buritos and Tacos to authentic mom and pop kitchens. Mexican restaurants are popular because they are full-flavoured and typical of a meal prepared at home such as tacos, burritos, rice dishes, chicken dishes, nachos etc. The other reason is Mexican food is far different from your typical burger and fries joint.

All the wonderful elements of a classic turkey meatloaf but without the breadcrumb fillers but loaded with Salerno mozzarella which oozes gooey when baked. Just look at the photo once again…yes, it is THAT GOOD!     Characteristics of an amazing meatloaf recipe   A meatloaf recipe has to be moist, flavourful and paired up with a nice homemade sauce or gravy. If I had it my way a nice side of buttery mashed potatoes but these days we opt for something healthier such as a garden salad. These days most people are looking to cut the carbs and opt for smarter choices such as vegetables, fruits and proteins. Do you ever just have one of those days where you come home and the last thing you want to do is cook a big meal? We have them often especially with an almost 3-year-old running around the house.

Low Carb Baked Stuffed Zucchini Egg Roll

Wow your guests with this simple to make low carb baked stuffed zucchini egg roll that takes no time at all to prepare.   It’s time to harvest zucchini and many of you might find that you have an abundance of it since it grows so beautifully in Ontario. Organic produce is best when you can grow it yourself but if you don’t have the option visit a local organic farm or shop the grocery store. Some of the best zucchini recipes such as my low carb baked stuffed zucchini egg roll boast simple ingredients such as eggs, parmigiano cheese, fresh chives, Asiago and sliced ham or Mortadella. If you’re not a fan of the deli meat you can leave it out for a simple, delicious baked stuffed zucchini egg roll that’s perfect for low carb or keto fans.   Is zucchini a fruit or vegetable?   I’ve been asked this a few times so let’s break it down for those who are curious.  What I found out was interesting because like most people I thought zucchini was a vegetable when in fact it’s a fruit. This is probably why it tastes so good in either baked goods or savoury […]

Flaky Corned Beef Puffs A Taste Of Home

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO TO THE UK TO TASTE THE FLAVOURS OF CORNWALL   They say that you haven’t had a proper pasty unless you’ve been to Cornwall, UK. I grew up on Corned beef pasties as we call them in the UK and if you ask anyone they will tell you the history behind pasties and Cornwall, hence the name. Corned beef pasties (Cornish Pasty) were common meals for those who worked in the Cornwall mines because they were considered a meal-in-one. The pasties are short crust pastry stuffed with meat (typically beef) and vegetables, sealed then baked in the oven. My version of the UK Cornish pasties are Corned Beef Puffs which are savoury flaky and sure to fill hungry bellies. Don’t let corned beef in a can (also known as salt beef) scare you away because it’s delicious and certainly a staple in many homes around the world. Another popular recipe you might be familiar with is corned beef and cabbage. My corned beef pastry can be eaten hot or cold which makes them perfect for an on-the-go meal instead of stopping off for fast-food. If you double the recipe you can pack extras in your […]
