Steamed Vegetables with Herb and garlic butter

This dressing really makes the steamed vegetables taste super tasty. It is inspired by a  freezer meal I got from a supermarket in Jasper, Canada. I thought, ‘this combination of flavours is yum! I must try recreate this when I get home’ (minus all the preservatives and artificial flavourings!)

When my husband tried it for the first time he enthusiastically exclaimed

Due to the high fat content, they are a bit of a

I love chocolate! It’s definitely my favourite sweet food, so I’ve tried a lot of different chocolate cake recipes!  Here are my favourite three. Enjoy!

  1. Mr I’s “Far Too Easy” Chocolate Cake.

What I like about it? It tastes amazing and is so easy! I can’t imagine how it could be any easier or quicker to make a cake from scratch. I always serve it without icing, but with cashew cream (see the link on the recipe page).
