Sweet & Sour Chicken

This sweet & sour chicken can be made with vegan “chicken” pieces or regular chicken breast…either way, it’s perfect for an easy weeknight meal!

Howdy, friends… I realise it’s been forever since I’ve passed along a main meal recipe to you.  I blame this on the hungry people in my house (myself included!)- just when I think I’ve made enough to have for dinner, leftovers for lunches the next day, AND still have some in reserve for the “blog photo shoot,” it turns out I’ve underestimated my household appetite once again.  …

Parmesan Eggplant Bake

Parmesan Eggplant Bake

This hearty parmesan eggplant bake is quick enough for a weeknight supper, oozing enough with cheese for the kids to accept the eggplant underneath… and delicious enough to be at extreme risk of being eaten before the photo shoot is done… gulp!

Did you ever notice I don’t post too many main dish recipes?  Yeah, there’s a reason for that.  For one, despite the best of my Meal Planning 101 intentions, dinner planning still usually begins at 4pm with me…

Chickpea Salmon Burgers with Tomato Chili Jam

Chickpea Salmon Burgers

My Ma used to make “salmon patties” when I was a kid, and the whole family loved them.  You couldn’t help it… they were crunchy, mild in flavour, and Ma always served ketchup alongside in the cutest little pewter pitcher with a lid you could flip up and down with your thumb.  I ate more just so I could use the ketchup pitcher.  I know why she loved them- there were only 3 ingredients (canned salmon, saltine crackers, and egg) that she had on hand all the time.  Plus, they could be whipped up in less time than it took for me and my brother to watch a Star Trek rerun on TV….
