Roasted Rosemary Golden Beet Chips

Roasted Rosemary Beet Chips | Eyes Bigger Than My Stomach

Crispy, savoury beet chips are a perfect, healthy chips snack that’s easy to make with just 5 ingredients! Growing up, my dad was a serious vegetable gardener.  My brother and I were always very aware of where food came from – we picked and shelled peas – eating as many as we could get away with in the process.  We would get lost amongst the

Cheesy Garlic Biscuits – Because They’re Not Scones

Cheesy Garlic Biscuits | Eyes Bigger Than My Stomach

Last weekend, I made cheesy garlic biscuits.  I didn’t start out my day thinking I would make biscuits.  I actually got it into my head that I wanted to make scones.  I’m not really sure why I wanted to do this.  I’ve never made scones in my life.  I’m not a huge fan of scones in general.  But for some reason, I thought I should

Simplicity: Avocados on Toast

Avocados on Toast | Eyes Bigger Than My Stomach

Cupcakes stuffed with Snicker bits topped with peanut butter maple bacon frosting and drizzled with salted caramel sauce. Did I get your attention?  Probably. Scrolling through Pinterest and browsing food blogs lately has started to feel overly indulgent and a bit… stomach clenching.  Why this sudden trend to stuff  more “stuff” into a dish to make it more outrageous?  More decadent? Early in the year,

Zucchini (Courgette) Goat Cheese Tart

Zucchini Goat Cheese Tart |

I bought zucchini in August.  That’s right.  I bought it. Who does that???  Well, apparently, I do. This is the time of year when people are overrun with zucchini and it’s not unusual to find yourself with a few left on your doorstep courtesy of a desperate gardening neighbour who has taken to dropping off buckets full in the middle of the night! But, while

Lemon Roasted Asparagus Wrapped in Bacon with Roasted Cauliflower

Lemon Roasted Bacon Asparagus with Roasted Caulilower | Eyes Bigger Than My Stomach

I am a huge fan of roasted vegetables.  Even in spring.  I have two vegetables in particular that I can eat in massive quantities: asparagus and cauliflower. The other afternoon I was at Granville Island for lunch and all I could think about was going to the market and buying cauliflower and asparagus for dinner.  In fact, that was ALL I wanted for dinner. Roasting

Making Sushi and Gomae!

sushi rolls

Back in January I was feeling a bit sorry for myself.  As I mentioned before, it was Fine Lime’s 3rd birthday, which happened to fall on a Friday and I wanted to go out and celebrate.  Nothing fancy – just a few drinks and nibbles with good friends. I don’t like birthdays and I don’t often do much for them but I do believe that

Curried Blue Cheese Apple Salad

Disclosure notice: I was provided with free product by Castello cheese for the purpose of writing this post.  All opinions stated within are my own. It’s really not a secret around here that I have a weakness for cheese.  Any kind of cheese.  Despite being lactose intolerant, I add it to everything.  It just makes stuff better.  And that’s what those little Lactaid pills are

Multi-Cultural Green Beans (and a give away!)

I am a bit glum this week.  It’s Photoshop World 2011 in Las Vegas and I had really, really hoped to be there this year.  I had to miss last year and promised myself I’d make it up to me this year.   But money and other commitments meant it didn’t get to happen and I’m a bit gloomy as a result.  As a designer

Rhubarb Berry Compote

Can you all stand another rhubarb post??  Last one, I promise (mainly because I’m all out of rhubarb, hehe). Rhubarb Berry Compote is one of my favourite ways to use rhubarb because you can do so many things with it, including freezing it.  I put it on my Cheerios in the morning, mix it with yogurt or cottage cheese for an afternoon snack, add it

Summer Scrambled Eggs and Hockey

I'm only sad that I had to cover Alex Burrows handsome face to take this picture... at least you get Kesler!

Here it is, my obligatory Canucks post.  I want this Stanley Cup wrapped up in four games because… it’s June.  It’s summer. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan.  I’ve shared season’s tickets for the last few years.  I love going to games.  But, it’s time for hot dogs at the ballpark and taking in a Whitecaps game.  Not stale smelling ice rinks and below
