Good old comfort food!

Over Christmas I was in sunny Palm Desert (Southern California)...and when I returned it was cold, dark, and rainy in beautiful BC!

Upon my return I was greeted with a little baby cold/flu. Which means is not as bad as I make it out to seem, but I still complain.

I find myself attracted to the many comfort foods that I love:

Check out some of my new favourite winter time recipes I have found and made. They are delicious and taste even better!

#1. First off is my version of a Cream of Broccoli soup. Being dairy free I often find myself missing that good creamy taste, however this version what I lacked in cream, made up for in spices and flavours. DELISH!

From the gluten free goddess Karina (love her)...

#2. Next on the list are Beet Chips.

I was eating an incredible Beef Carpaccio at Beecher Street Cafe in Crescent Beach Surrey BC and found these Beet Chips on top to be a yummy, healthy, and added flavour and texture to the dish. Sweet from the beet juice these are a must try and would go nice with the Soup above or as a healthy snack.

#3. GOOD OLD Bean Dip!

This comes from the Pioneer Woman blog. I first ran into this blog a while back and then a friend of mine kept bragging about the food she blogged. She said her parents are even addicted to the blog and I knew I had to keep my eye on it. Good thing I did... because this looks yummy! 

Bean dips are my ultimate comfort food. Paired with a simple salad this is an example of my dinner. Maybe not as healthy as it should be...a nice Friday night treat.
