Eggplant Parmesan- baked not fried- sooo good!

I love eggplant!  I really love eggplant parmesan... breaded eggplant slices, baked in the oven and cooked in a homemade marinara sauce, layered with assorted cheeses.  So good!

I make extra breaded slices of eggplant, freeze them, ready for a quick dinner.  Just add sauce and I am ready to go.

White Bean, Kale and Roasted Vegetable Soup

This soup hit all my high notes: beans, kale and a medley of vegetables.  Lots of flavour and so easy to pull together.

I began with a recipe from and made it my own.  Half the batch I keep in the fridge and the other half is frozen in 500ml canning jars.  There are perfect for bringing to the office for lunch.  Or, for a quick, delicious supper.

Jeon- Korean pancakes- this one is vegetarian

My first taste of a traditional Korean pancake was in a little Korean restaurant in Kelowna BC.  The Korean owners prepared their traditional dishes and were always ready with samples.  Delicious. Their jeon were made with shrimp and vegetables.

Jeon is easy to make.  You can include whatever vegetables you have on hand.  It is worthwhile making the dipping sauce, spicy or not, to serve alongside.  Can be served as an appie, a side dish or a main.

Thank you to Bren at for the inspiration for this dish.

Korean jeon served with a spicy dipping sauce and homemade kimchi.  

This recipe serves four.
