Summer Snapper (with Tomatoes, Onions, and Oregano)

When you are in the middle of a move or renovation, simple is best. But the simplest form of food (albeit not the healthiest) seems to be eating out or takeaway. Seems okay right? Well, after a week or more, home cooking and fresh tastes are what the palate craves. So, I went to the market, picked up a couple of ingredients, and made an amazing, easy snapper. Summery and fresh, it hit all the right notes.

Oh, and dinner on the deck? Priceless.

Cookies for a Cause! Cranberry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Our company is riding for Juvenille Diabetes in September and is looking for support. To help the cause, we hosted a bake sale at work to raise money for our team. Help our cause by DONATING NOW.

For this occasion, I thought it was really important for me to create amazing cookies that people would just snatch up and that would also have some healthier, more substantial elements for those who would normally shy away from the regular cookie.

So, I made these Cranberry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies. They were just sweet enough for those that like them that way, but didn't scare the health addicts away. They were a hit and sold out in record time!

For those of you that were not around to buy these Cookies for a Cause, your support is always appreciated. Please click HERE to donate as every dollar counts and even just a small amount can change lives.

Salmon with Easy Dill Sauce

My extended family is visiting from France at the moment. That combined with the moving and our house renovations has contributed to my sparse postings recently.

But I wanted to share this one because it is quick, easy and delicious.

First of all, what could be a better marriage than salmon and dill? Especially to showcase the beautiful wild sockeye salmon available in beautiful British Columbia.

Secondly, what could possibly be easier that this recipe? The ingredients are straight forward and the salmon is baked in the oven. You need a baking dish or sheet for the salmon and a bowl to mix the sauce. The result? Easy clean up and a fantastic meal!
