The Fig Tree: Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Apples + Cranberries. Hello and happy Thanksgiving weekend to my fellow Canadians! Xo Hope you are all having wonderful celebrations with family and friends.

Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch: Skinny Mashed Yams. Skinny mashed yams! I received 2 yams the other day in our veggie box that is delivered and I thought hmmm what should I make with these? Then I realized I haven't shared a favorite staple in our house when we have yams. These are amazing, it's really the only way I like yams.. I always thought I hated yams until I realized there was just way to much sugar added to them every time I tried them.

I still persisted in hopes that one day I would enjoy yams. While that day has come and the secret I found was yams are sweet enough with out a bunch of extra sugar if cooked the right way... I didn't even add milk or cream..Total deliciousness...Sometimes at the holiday's I will add a little crunch topping or marshmallows just to make them feel traditional but truth be told we prefer them naked! Peel and chop yams. Add yams,sea salt, cinnamon and water. Cover and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Do not drain allow yams to sit for 3 minutes without the lid and then add butter. Enjoy! Skinny Mashed Yams. Shrimp & Vegetable Quinoa Fried Rice | Queen of Quinoa | Gluten-free + Quinoa Recipes. It’s been a while since I posted a quinoa recipe. It feels like I’m depriving you or something. Like I’m not doing my job. But to be honest, it isn’t that I’m not eating it (because I eat quinoa practically everyday), it’s more that admittedly, I’ve been a little lazy.

Instead of whipping up fun, new quinoa recipes, we’ve been by having rerun dinners lately. And by rerun dinners, I mean that we’ve been turning to some our of favorites, like Korean Bibimbap and Summer Squash & Currant Quinoa Salad and Cajun Quinoa Stuffed Cabbage, not brainstorming and creating like we should be. So enough was enough. It was time to push myself out of that little rut and come up with something new and delicious for you. And since I love all things Asian flavored, it only made sense.Why not convert a classic totally unhealthy Chinese dish and turn it healthy?

This lasagna is layer, upon layer of decadent flavor. The polenta itself is infused with lemon thyme who’s fresh bright flavor contrasts with the woody mushrooms and the salty , yet sweet, gorgonzola. For a surprising crunch, toasted pine nuts finish this dish. A change of pace from my usual recipes that are cooked 100% in the pressure cooker. Though without one, I would have spent all day making polenta instead of multi-tasking and sauteing while pressure cooking!

The very first time I ever had Gnocchi was at a small Italian restaurant in Pretoria and I had absolutely no idea what I was ordering. All I knew was that I liked the sound of the Gorgonzola sauce that came with it. I think I must’ve been about 14 or 15 at the time and I know that I was probably the only teenager who was willing and eager to eat rotten cheese.

Even now, 10 years later, most of my friends don’t like the idea of Gorgonzola, or anything stronger than Cheddar or Gouda. I am very fortunate in that regard. I am so thankful that my parents raised me that way. I’ll never forget the scene in “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” where a young Toula Portokalos eats Moussaka. I really hope that I can raise my kids with that same adventurous spirit and mind-set. This Gnocchi is really just the easiest thing (especially when you buy the Gnocchi ready-made) to make and I added some Walnuts to add extra texture and flavour and it was absolutely delish. Serves 2. Espresso and Cream: Salmon Salad Pizza. Hey everyone! How was your weekend? Joe and I had friends over on Saturday night to watch the Broncos game and eat chili. And as an added surprise, my mom joined us for the weekend.

And although the Broncos lost, it helped to have company (and ice cream) around to keep us from feeling the pain of the loss too much. And since my mom was around this weekend, we took advantage of having her snap a photo of us that wasn’t taken with my computer. Almost every week, Joey and I have homemade pizza for a weekday meal. Inspired by our favorite dinner, salads topped with salmon and feta cheese, Salmon Salad Pizza was born.

I was a tad bit skeptical about serving this pizza to Joe. Instructions*Preheat oven to 375°F. Happy Cooking! Market Matters- Conchiglioni with Balsamic Glazed Sweet Onions & Gorgonzola. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon salt. Add pasta, and cook for about 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Be sure and check as this pasta can take a bit longer than most to cook. As the pasta cooks heat 2 tablespoon oil in a medium-sized skillet set over medium-high heat. Add half the garlic and cook gently for about 1 minute. Add the breadcrumbs and cook until nicely toasted. Heat the remaining 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. In a large bowl, combine pasta with a little bit of its water, breadcrumbs, onion mixture, and Gorgonzola.

Gorgonzola Two Ways. March came and went. It was an unusual month. Apart from the devastating events around the world, for me, there may have been a lot of dreaming as well as dealing with the fear of decision making, changes and a case of unclear signs. April signals that we are quarter way through the year (yikes!) And it's time to get serious about the goals set otherwise there will be nothing to show for in the passage of time.... April is also going to be filled with fun things like celebrating birthdays (thankfully not mine), walks in the park to greet my favourite four-legged friend (with a gorgeous nose), snapping more photos with my memory-keeper, wine sipping to accompany dinners (to work my way through the collection from those winery tours), and catching up with friends and books.

So I set a goal few months ago about getting to know different types of cheese (and thought I'd document part of that journey here!) Why on earth did I choose this cheese to start with? Anyways, some facts I've learnt: a. Meatless Monday Spinach, Ricotta and Asiago Quiche. This here, folks, is my first installment in the Meatless Monday series on the blog. I’m fairly bursting with excitement about this! I have long wanted to talk with you about the absence of red meat in our diet here at the Circle B Kitchen, and, well, now the cat is out of the proverbial bag. There are a couple of reasons why we don't eat red meat that I've explained here. But the upshot is that I have pledged my support to the Meatless Monday movement and every Monday hereafter I will be posting meatless.

Sounds possibly risqué, eh? And I’m very excited about this quiche. The ricotta cheese created a super creamy, cheesy custard that we just loved. We should maybe take a moment to talk about pie crust. Perhaps it’s a bit of cliché to offer a quiche as a meatless entrée, but I will make no apologies here.
