I’ve been on a major sweet potato kick lately! I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I go through phases with food — and right now I can’t seem to get enough sweet potatoes. My Roasted Sweet Potato Fries with Lemon Tahini Sauce couldn’t be easier to make and it can be on your table in less than 45 minutes! Ever since my New Year Detox Salad with Pink Tahini Dressing recipe I’ve been experimenting with tahini-based sauces and dressings and really enjoy them with roasted veggies and pepitas. Today’s recipe combines all of those things with one of my favourite spring herbs, thyme! The sweet potato fries are infused with fresh thyme and oven roasted — they come out crisp on the outside and soft and velvety on the inside. My Lemon Tahini Sauce combines tahini paste with lemon, maple syrup and a touch of cayenne power for a little kick, resulting in a bright, protein packed sauce. It’s incredible drizzled overtop of the fries and sprinkled with pepitas for some extra crunch! Try this recipe next time you’re looking for light, spring side dish with a fresh, citrusy twist!

My good friend Kelsey got married on Kootenay Lake at the end of August, so a couple of weeks before the wedding, the bridal party threw Kelsey a wedding shower inspired by a beautiful Tuscan soirée! Kelsey is half Italian, has traveled to Italy, and really loves good food and wine (let’s be honest — we all really love good food and wine)! Today I’m sharing her shower details; complete with decor inspiration (and lots of sunflowers!), an authentic Italian menu, my White Citrus Sangria recipe, a cute kitchen-themed shower game, and a fun guest favour DIY.
I get together with my college friends once a week for dinner. Each week we alternate who hosts, and if you’re not hosting, you bring a bottle of wine for everyone to enjoy. Pretty sweet deal, right? I absolutely love our little tradition and look forward to catching up with my girls each week.
Last time I hosted dinner, I made basa fish tacos with all the fixings — and today I’m sharing the recipes for my favourite 3 Fresh & Festive Taco Toppings! I really enjoy authentic Mexican food, and could happily eat it everyday for the rest of my life. The flavours are so fresh and festive!
