Recipe: Olive and Spinach Pasta

Delicious carbs and pastaaaaaa. What I love most about pasta is that no matter what your diet is, you can usually find substitutes for the pasta or noodles to whatever fits your eating habits. For this dish, since it’s meatless and dairy-free, I like to use a whole wheat spaghetti noodle since it’s more filling…

Recipe: Fish Baked in Foil with Tomatoes and Couscous.

My favorite way to eat fish is baked in a foil pouch. It keeps the fish tender and moist, plus it makes a pretty awesome sauce to go over a starch. I like couscous for this dish since it soaks up the flavor of the sauce. There’s a few components to the dish and several steps,…

Recipe: Fried Zucchini Cakes

I was given the gift of an abundant amount of zucchini (courgettes). So instead of making endless stir-fry with it, I decided to make some pan fried cakes using the shredded squash.
