Photo: Kelly Rossiter We are into the final days of our Provincial election and it’s been a daily challenge for me to provide some healthy, easily grabbed food for the people working on the compaign (including my son) for our local candidate. Their diets consist mainly of take-out falafel, which one of them runs out to get for everyone, because nobody gets a lunch or even a dinner break during their 12 hour days. One young woman said to me the other day that the only fruits and vegetables she has eaten for the past month is wh… Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on Weekday Vegetarian: Moroccan Stuffed Tomatoes

Photo: Kelly Rossiter We’ve been eating tomatoes at pretty much every meal for the past two weeks, except last night when my husband cried “enough” and I made a Chinese stir fry with nary a tomato in sight. No doubt a lot of you are feeling the same way, but as I said to my Parentables editor who was bemoaning the glut of tomatoes from her garden , just think about January for a minute. Don’t those tomatoes look absolutely delicious now? … Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on Is The Bank of America Tower "The World’s Greenest Skyscraper"? (Video)

Images credit Ryan Browne Cook + Fox’s Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park in New York was the first skyscraper to attain LEED Platinum, and is loaded with green gizmos from high-tech glass to slag concrete to co-generation to a giant Calmac icemaker that makes ice at night and cools by day. About the only thing it doesn’t have is parking. It has been called the greenest skyscraper ever built, although I previously wondered Can an All-Gl… Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on Baked French Toast with Honey-Poached Blueberries

Photos by Jaymi Heimbuch This is my secret weapon when it comes to breakfast in bed. It is simple to make, tasty and it looks like you put in a lot of work. Honey-poached blueberries just melt in your mouth. They are so divine and so delicate, you will want to add them to everything. Of course, this dish is best enjoyed with a mimosa and your honey. … Read the full story on TreeHugger

Photo Credit: Steven DePolo , Flickr Creative Commons Attribution License. D. Landreth Seeds is America’s oldest seed company. It was founded in 1784 in Pennsylvania, and carries over 900 heirloom, non-GMO seed varieties. Many of the plants and vegetable varieties we now grow in our gardens are there thanks to Landreth introducing them to this country. For example, Landreth introduced the tomato (then known as “love apple”) to home gardeners, and later went on to develop yellow tomatoes. Many of us grow ‘Bloomsdale’ spinach — this variety is also… Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on Weekday Vegetarian: Curried Lentil, Wild Rice and Orzo Salad

Photo: Kelly Rossiter My husband and I attended a wedding this past weekend of a young woman we have watched grow up, year after year, at our cottage. Her wedding was the antithesis of what now seems to be the modern wedding. No expensive or exotic locale, the service was held in the tiny country church in our tiny town and the reception was held in her father’s building shop, transformed into a beautiful party room by her cousins. No expensive caterers, the cooking was done by her mother, her sister, her aunt and her cousin and the flowers, potatoes, tomatoes and garlic all came from her

And then we export it, raking in $1.9 billion annually. We export $5.6 billion worth of goods, and import $3.7 billion.

Comments Off on Weekday Vegetarian: Indian Butter Chickpeas

Photo: Kelly Rossiter One of the things I hear from people who have become vegetarian is that they miss some of their favourite dishes from their meat eating days. If you are missing the taste and texture of a big rib-eye steak, I can’t help you out, but if you miss particular sauces or rubs or marinades, you can usually make them and use a different source of protein, often tofu . I found this recipe for Butter Chicken Schnitzel which already treated the sauce as a dip rather than putting the chicken straight into it as it i… Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on Weekday Vegetarian: Breakfast Tacos with Pico de Gallo

Photo: Kelly Rossiter Even though I’m an early morning person, I don’t like to get cooking too soon in the day. I’m a devotee of toast , and that is what I have to eat most mornings. It’s different during the summer though, when my days aren’t so hectic and I can take a bit of time to develop an appetite and make an appetizing and slightly more ambitious breakfast. I especially like making breakfast when we have company, as we have had for the past week, when everyone gets up at their own time and breakfast usually turns into something closer to… Read the full story on TreeHugger
