Crock-Pot Chickpea Stew With Balsamic Caramelized Onions

The U. S. is having one of those long holiday weekends and many people on the East Coast are snowed in, which I think translates into a perfect weekend to break out the slow cooker! Of course, it's no secret I'm a huge slow cooker fan, and I'm also a member of the Chickpea Fan Club, so you can see how this Crock-Pot Chickpea Stew with Balsamic Caramelized Onions from Cookin' Canuck would appeal to me. ...more

Kale Salad with Citrus, Avocado, and Spicy Almonds

I had a version of this salad last summer at one of my favorite restaurants in Pawtucket, the Garden Grille. I love this restaurant because the menu is proudly vegetarian with a number of vegan options. You’d think this would limit the crowd, but almost every time I’ve visited there has been a wait.

Chocolate Raspberry Heartcakes

Valentine’s Day is tommorow but the lovey-dovey recipes have been popping up in the blog world for weeks now. Well I am jumping on the bandwagon and posting one of my own today. I revived a heart-shaped pancakes mold for Christmas and well, I thought it would be the perfect inspiration for a Valentine’s Day recipe. I made these pancakes “heartcakes” the first time in December and then had to hold myself back from posting them so I could use it as my V-Day surprise for you!...more
