Over a cup of tea…

An oldie but goodie! I first made this soup in second year university, and blogged about it way back when I first started blogging. And since I'm going through all my recipes and re-photographing them (so my readers like you have pretty pictures to look at), ...

Spinach & Artichoke White Pizza

By Wednesday, December 3, 2014

DECEMBER. Every time I look at the calendar I am reminded. Mostly that the wedding is so soon. I will say, though, that while I'm glad we had a 13-month engagement, it's not necessary. You really need about six months max to plan everything... and even ...

By Friday, November 28, 2014

I've got a snack for you! It's been far to long since I blogged about something buffalo-flavoured, right? Personally, I don't think you can ever get enough buffalo ANYTHING. But you knew that already. Sometimes I just crave the flavour and cannot get it out of my mind. ...

Mexican Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers

By Wednesday, November 26, 2014

I made these at least three months ago. And then I lost the recipe. I just found it and was SO excited. I hate losing things! You see, when I develop recipes, I write down everything I do as I do it (i.e. temperatures and portions and ...

Jalapeño Popper Fries

By Wednesday, November 19, 2014

The Best Homemade Pancakes

By Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Pancake Tuesday! Well, not really, but it's a Tuesday and I made you some pancakes. You know how I stopped buying ready-made pizza crust? And store-bought naan bread? Well I stopped buying pancake batter too. They're so easy and quick to make, why bother? We don't eat pancakes ...
