pizza sauce and pizza dough

Late summer, here in Montréal, our markets, and backyard and community gardens alike, are overflowing with tomatoes; all ripening at once that it’s nearly impossible to keep up with nature by merely consuming them at the usual weekly consumption rate. They are sold dirt cheap, by the bushels, to anyone who is brave enough to venture into a little forward-thinking sauce-making.  I may not always be so forward-thinking but I’m a sucker for cheap so this is the time of year when I turn a fairly inexpensive bushel of tomatoes into a healthy supply of pizza sauce.homemade pizza sauce and whole wheat pizza dough | conifères & feuillus Continue reading

One of my son’s closest friends happens to be of Lebanese descent. The first time he went over to his house, he returned home and exclaimed rhetorically “Why can’t you make food like theirs?” I didn’t have much a choice; this one question set into motion the quest to add a few more recipes to our arsenal.grilled lamb kafta & tahini yogurt sauce | conifères & feuilllus Continue reading

indian spiced kale roti and kale chickpea patties

Two kale recipes today! Both are kale versions of recipes that I have been making for quite some time now. These ones, though, provide perfect opportunity to use up any extra kale that I may have lying around in the fridge (if you saw my last post, then you can imagine that I had some!), as well as, to sneak a bit more kale into my children’s diet. kale | conifères & feuillus Continue reading

cheddar & onion scones

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain. -Vivien Greene

At this time of the year, I get really impatient with my herbs, checking every morning for signs of life on the surface of my herb garden. Despite my impatience though, they only come up when they they are good and ready to do so. My chives are always the first to make their debut and when they do, I am sure to make cheddar & chive scones to mark the long-awaited arrival. But while I wait, I make these cheddar & onion scones instead. They are equally delicious and loaded with the same allium goodness!

chicken fajitas with pico de gallo and salsa verde

When I started blogging, I had only one objective in mind: recording my recipes for my children to use someday. I didn’t expect to reap any other rewards for myself. But as always, life brings unexpected surprises along the way. In this case, I am rewarded with this amazing blogging community. I had been so busy working in a tiny cubicle all these years that I had no idea such wonderful places existed. Furthermore (but not limited to), I get to learn about and try new recipes as I go along. Much appreciated, not only by myself but my young, very-healthy-appetite-eaters as well!chicken fajitas with pico de gallo and salsa verde | conifères et feuillus food blog
