Bourbon Banana French Toast

By Friday, April 17, 2015

This is a newlywed breakfast. What I mean by that is… I made it the first week we were home after getting married. We were still in this completely head-over-heels with happiness bubble. I am not the breakfast maker in our household (My Other Half and ...

Doughnut Muffins (Duffins!)

By Wednesday, April 15, 2015

So let me tell you about how I develop my recipes, and choose which ones to blog about. At this point, I’d say 25% (maybe as much as a third) of the recipes I blog about are my own creations – things I came up with ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, April 13, 2015

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd tell you that lately, I am... Eating / At Oyamel in Washington, DC! Any everywhere else in the city. Drinking / Happy Hour cocktails! Washington is known for its Happy Hours. Mastering / Flying. I don't love it, but I have ...

Asian Udon & Spinach Stir-Fry

By Friday, April 10, 2015

NOODLES! It’s been far too long. You know I am ALL about the super-fast weeknight noodle dish. This one is perfect because udon noodles basically come pre-cooked. So fast! And spinach is a staple in our house for smoothies, and so are green onions (not for ...

Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies

By Wednesday, April 8, 2015

So remember how I don't really like chocolate? Yeah, I kinda ruined chocolate for myself as a kid. But my dad doesn't like it either, so maybe it's genetic? Every now and then, though, I get a craving. It's really, really rare. I still would never order ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, April 6, 2015

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd tell you all about our amazing Easter weekend in Halifax! It was a short trip so we packed all our favourite things in. To name a few highlights, I spent tons of quality time ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, March 30, 2015

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd want to talk about books! After a terrible 2014 (I only read 17 books and just five - FIVE! - book club books), I am determined to step things up. I mentioned I ...

Crispy Sour Cream & Onion Fries

By Wednesday, March 25, 2015

This recipe is the spawn of my popcorn addiction! That doesn’t sound very appetizing but it’s hump day so… it is what it is. My favourite popcorn flavours are completely polar opposite from my favourite chip flavours. I looove sour cream and bacon chips, and jalapeno chips. ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, March 23, 2015

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd be excited for a busy work week with my first business trip at my new job, and My Other Half home from almost four weeks straight of work travel. We're super excited for ...

Creamy Classic Hummus

By Friday, March 20, 2015

What’s your favourite day of the week? I’ve been thinking about this. When people ask me if I’m a morning person, my instinct is to say yes… but for different reasons that you might think. Do I like waking up and getting out of bed? Well… ...

Tandoori Carrot & Apple Bisque

By Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Soup crammed with veggies... and an apple! A colleague was watching me eat my delicious cream of mushroom soup recently and was saying how much she loved cream-based soups. I do too, especially cream of mushroom, but realized at that moment that most of the soups ...

Can’t wait to make…

By Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Photo via Blogging Over Thyme. Spicy Grapefruit Margaritas. And basically anything everything grapefruit, until the end of time. Bacon Jalapeno Meatloaf. I think I'll stuff it with cheese, which is the answer to everything, by the way. Coconut Oil Apple Crisp. As if I really need another killer ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, March 16, 2015

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I’d complain about winter again. Spring is being a tease and I’m not into it. Last week was warm and gorgeous and my driveway is finally completely clear and I can actually see GRASS ...

Southwestern Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

By Friday, March 13, 2015

Another spaghetti squash recipe for you all! It was just this week I was having lunch with girlfriend and talking, again, about how difficult it is to cook for one. I am sure I have rambled on about this in past spaghetti squash recipe posts, but ...

How To Perfectly Cook Quinoa

By Wednesday, March 11, 2015

I still remember the day I first discovered quinoa. There were so many rumours about it floating around... it's like rice that's good for you, it's an ancient grain that has just been re-discovered by the Aztecs, it's a superfood that can replace meat... and some ...

Memory Lane

By Tuesday, March 10, 2015

In March 2011, four years ago, I was... Making these peanut butter & jam cookies. Discovering the amazingness of Inside-Out Chicken Pot Pies. Devouring pineapple-glazed ribs like these. Loving the heck out of this Chicken & Coconut Vegetable Rice.  

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, March 9, 2015

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd be all about Bachelor finale day! I always read spoilers so I don't care so much about the outcome, but I always enjoy the live After The Final Rose hour. This season, things ...

Photo an Hour

By Thursday, March 5, 2015

It's been far too long since my last post like this. This was a short, lazy Sunday in January, spent at home with my husband! For the previous Photo an Hour posts, click here. Lazy mornings. Tea in my weekend mug. Winter red mani. Quick lunch - tomato & bocconcini ...

Quick & Easy Thai Red Curry

By Wednesday, March 4, 2015

Dinner for ONE! My husband travels a lot. Yes yes – you know this already. But it means that being alone and cooking for one has become my specialty! Honestly, when My Other Half is away, I stay very busy. I have all my extra-curriculars, I see ...
