savory zucchini feta pancakes

Our toddler absolutely loves pancakes (honestly, who doesn’t!?). I always make sweet healthy pancakes for breakfast on Sunday mornings, but yesterday I wanted to make a savory version for Gabriel’s lunch full of veggies. I decided to grate zucchini — one of his favorite vegetables […]

The apricots this year have been extra-juicy and sweet, making them the perfect fruits to turn into a sweet cake for brunch or dessert. I’ve been buying buckets and buckets of apricots since they are one of Gabriel’s favorite fruits and have been turning them […]

roasted eggplant tomato and arugula gratin

Whenever I’m craving cheesy pasta but want something lighter, I make a vegetable gratin. Less caloric (because there’s no pasta) but cheesy and full of flavor nonetheless, vegetable gratins make great lunches with a light salad or can also be served as a side dish for dinner. […]
