Happy 2017! Excited to kick off the New Year with an easy, fresh and tasty recipe. Last week, one of my besties Jill brought over a delish salad from her local Farm Boy market, and as soon as I tried it I knew I had to create a copycat. This easy broccoli-cauliflower salad is crunchy…

Roasted Fall Vegetable Quinoa

One of my Fall favourites is roasted vegetables. I love collecting an assortment of farm fresh Fall veggies and roasting them up in the the oven with some olive oil, salt and pepper.
