Easy Pecan Butter Tarts!

By Thursday, March 24, 2016

I'm baccckkk!!! You know, I thought for sure I'd started food blogging maternity leave, but I woke up this morning with an itch to share a recipe, and I thought "food blogging has no rules!"... so here I am! Let's be honest - there is no way ...

Tater Tot Casserole

By Thursday, March 10, 2016

Did you have tater tots as a kid? I definitely did. For us, they were a side dish, along some frozen vegetables and fish sticks... or something like that. Doesn't sound very appetizing to my adult, food-blogging self. I actually never really loved fish sticks but ...

One Pot Shrimp & Tomato Pasta

By Friday, March 4, 2016

FriYAY!!! I'm celebrating the end of the week with my favourite thing - pasta! As most readers know, Sundays are my big cooking day each week. I typically make 2-3 recipes, photograph them for the blog, and then package them up in individual portions for easy lunches ...

Crispy Parmesan Edamame

By Wednesday, March 2, 2016

Snack time! One of my favourite things to make, when I'm craving salt but don't want to down a bag of chips, is edamame. I buy from frozen, in the shell, and heat them up just like at Asian restaurants. Then I toss them in some ...

The Best Vegan Mac & Cheese

By Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Vegan, eh? I know you might be skeptical... But I promise you, this is a vegan recipe you DON'T want to pass up. Especially if you're overlooking it only because it's vegan. No, I'm not vegan, or going vegan for lent, or anything like that. I'm actually actively ...

My Go-To Chocolate Cupcakes (Dairy-Free!)

By Friday, February 12, 2016

Valentine's Cupcakes!!! I know the "holiday" has many haters out there, but I'm a total sucker. My nails are painted with Essie Fiji, with a couple little red hearts on accent nails in Essie A List. Clearly I love any excuse to get flowers and chocolates ...

Cream of Carrot Soup

By Wednesday, February 10, 2016

I am sooo excited about sharing this recipe today!!! Lately I've been working hard to cut down on the amount of food waste in our household. Shopping at Costco is awesome (and it's still my favourite store), but for two people, it can sometimes be a ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, February 8, 2016

If we were chatting over a cup of tea, I'd be telling you (again) about my favourite beauty products lately! It's been 7 weeks since I last rambled about this stuff, and I've been holding off talking about a few things especially for today! First on the ...

Amaretto Butternut Squash Soup

By Friday, February 5, 2016

SOUP! It's been far too long. My love affair with soup began long, long ago. As a kid, it was my go-to order at any restaurant. And then, when I started my first job, I learned how to make soup from scratch, which probably sparked my ...

My Homemade Taco Spice!

By Friday, January 29, 2016

Today we're going to make our own taco spice! I'm going to preach for a minute, so brace yourselves. Guys, please stop buying taco seasoning! Store-bought taco spice contains all sorts of nastiness, including gluten, MSG, preservatives, artificial colours, sodium and other things. It's much healthier to make ...

Cinnamon Sugar Pop Tarts

By Wednesday, January 27, 2016

One day I woke up and said "I'm going to make homemade pop tarts today"! Seriously. It was that random! I loooved pop tarts as a kid. Heck, I still do! My favourite were the strawberry ones with white icing. My mother rationed them though (one at ...

Slow Cooker Madras Beef

By Wednesday, January 20, 2016

This is the first meal I ever mastered! Rewind a decade. I was living with my best friend in an apartment in Ottawa and was in second year university. It was a big transition from living in residence on campus, but I was figuring it out. ...

Over a cup of tea…

By Monday, January 18, 2016

If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I'd tell you about two new David's Teas I'm obsessed with - Sweet Almond Green and one I've mentioned before, Spiced Apple. So good! I am normally either a black tea or herbal tea ...

Easy French Onion Soup

By Friday, January 15, 2016

Cozy soup for winter! I've got to start making more soups. It's been far too long and the weather is finally making feel like they're exactly what I need. On my list is some sort of butternut squash/amaretto combo, seafood chowder, more of my favourite chicken noodle soup ...

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

By Tuesday, December 29, 2015

These SERIOUSLY melt in your mouth. Last Easter, my step-mother-in-law (whose name is Daphne - I never know exactly what to call her... but step-mother-in-law is better than My Other Half's father's girlfriend, right?) got up early and announced she was making Apple Cinnamon Muffins. I'm not ...

Cheesy Dill Pickle Rolls

By Wednesday, December 23, 2015

Get ready for the easiest, most delicious pub food of LIFE. Apparently pickles are a common pregnancy craving (or at least that's what I've heard). I've always liked pickles, and this summer I became a big fan of ordering deep-fried pickles with a pint of cider as ...
