I've posted the veggie spots I'll be checking out while in Kingston. Make sure to visit their websites to really see what I'm walking in to before I arrive. I'm looking forward to my trip across Ontario looking for some happening veggie hot spots!
I've got some exciting news everyone!
I was pondering some new ideas for the blog a few nights ago and came up with a wonderful idea that I think will take things to the next level!
I am planning on combining my love of dining with my love of travelling and sharing it all on the blog! I will be visiting various cities throughout Ontario over the next several months looking for vegetarian and vegan restaurants that have it going on! I'll spend 3 days in these cities taking in the sights and eating fabulous food all while blogging about my trip. I think this will be such a fabulous way to showcase all the wonderful vegetarian and vegan restaurants out there paving their way and it will also help to inspire me in the kitchen. There are so many wonderful restaurants across Ontario and so many wonderful dishes just waiting for me to come and enjoy that I couldn't be more excited!
I'm planning my first trip to KINGSTON ONTARIO and once I have everything booked I'll fill you guys in on the restaurants I'll be visiting!
Potato soup is actually one of my favourite soups and it is such a treat in the fall and winter. It's so comforting and hearty like a giant, delicious hug. This potato soup is special because I've folded in some delicious pesto which adds a completely new set of flavours to the soup not to mention the green colour the soup takes on. The pesto really shines in this soup as the star ingredient, you'll be smearing pesto on everything after this!
Head on over to the RECIPES tab!
Keep in mind.....
After blending, if your soup appears too thick for your own preferences, thin it out by adding additional milk / stock and re blend until the consistency is what you desire.
CREAMY PESTO POTATO SOUP
I've paired creamy sauces and pesto before and the combination is delightful! Just in time for the cooler temperatures, I've got a potato soup you're going to love! I've blended pesto in to the soup which really works it in to every creamy bite. The resulting soup is luxurious, rich, and so delicious!
Fall is here and I couldn't be happier about it! I love everything about the season; the warm sweaters, boots, and the food!
All of the dishes we avoided throughout the summer because of running the oven in the heat or worrying about being too hot while eating are back on the menu. Soups, chilis, and pasta bakes I'm especially excited for along with all of those delicious hot beverages including hot cocoas, teas, and cappuccinos. I love the feeling of being bundled up and warm and I love that feeling when it comes from a comforting dish.
I'll be taking some time away from salads and smoothies and playing around with heartier, more comforting dishes. I've been practicing some new techniques and flavour combinations so I'm very excited for the upcoming months. There will be some super delicious recipes this fall / winter so make sure to be checking back often to find out what's coming up!
Are y'all summer lovers or do you get excited about the colder months like I do?
Three cheers for pumpkin spice everything and bundling up!
