Butternut Squash Soup with Cider Cream

Tis the season for comforting and warm soups. It's always good to eat produce at their freshest and in season.

Dinner time is the most important time of the day in my house. The family comes together after a full day of school, work, activities etc. It's a time when we can all share what's on our mind and reconnect.

Fricassée of chanterelles in a coconut cream sauce with pasta

I love the fall as it brings to us so many wonderful and healthy things, for free!! We love to forage for mushrooms this time of year and this is a great recipe to try if you have any type of mushroom. In this recipe I have used golden chanterelles but you can use your favourite mushroom. Mushrooms are truly magical as they are a superfood that provides us with cancer fighting properties. They are considered to be anti angiogenic, which means that they prevent the formation of blood vessels that tumours need to grow. So, include mushrooms in your diet whenever you can! Ingredients 1 1/2 cups of mushrooms of your choice 1 onion, chopped 3 garlic cloves, minced 1/4 white wine or vermouth 1

Indian lentil soup

If you like a little spice in your life, you will love this easy lentil soup recipe. Place the ingredients in your slow cooker in the morning, throw in some spinach and coconut milk when you get home from work and there you have it!
