Honey Sriracha Wing & BBQ Sauce

By Wednesday, January 22, 2014

We're ALMOST done with the bad photography. I promise. Actually, these photos were taken with my new camera, but they were taken at night. Ask any food blogger and they'll tell you that light is their biggest issue. And for me, where I work in an ...

Pork & Brussels Sprouts in Black Bean Sauce

By Friday, January 17, 2014

Lately, I've had a serious thing for ground pork. I blogged about two other ground pork recipes - Spicy Peanut Noodles with Ground Pork and Asian Pork Lettuce Wraps (Larb). I really like the flavour and have always loved all ground meats. We mostly only buy ground pork for our ...

Larb (Asian Pork Salad Wraps)

By Wednesday, January 8, 2014

Believe it or not, but it was this exact dish that made me fall in love with Thai food. I remember the first time I had it. My high school student council went out for dinner at the end of the year and one of my ...

Spicy Peanut Noodles with Ground Pork

By Friday, January 3, 2014

I'm taking a break from the awesome year-end round up posts to tell you about how I could eat a whole bowl of peanut sauce. That’s probably an exaggeration, but when I go for Vietnamese and get salad rolls, I always want more peanut satay sauce. ...

Wasabi Caesars

By Friday, November 1, 2013

Happy Friday. You're welcome. I have zero idea what I would do if I lived in the States and couldn't get Clamato juice. Like honestly, how could I exist with caesars? Personally, if I can toot my own horn here, I like my own caesars. I made ...

Thai Butternut Squash Soup

By Wednesday, October 16, 2013

The perfect fall soup. Things that mean fall to me: Soup Squash Pumpkin Chrysanthemums Fall colours/leaves Did I miss anything? I decided it was an appropriate time to make a delicious squash soup. Normally I gravitate towards my go-to soups, like my Mama’s spicy squash soup or the carrot squash soup I tried ...

Thai Shrimp Pizza

By Friday, August 23, 2013

Basically, if the title of a recipe has the word "Thai" in it... I'm sold. You might think I'm exaggerating, but I am not. I am hopelessly in love with all things Thai. One of my favourite staple items are pre-made, frozen pizza crusts. They're just so ...

Asian Mandarin Quinoa Bowl

By Friday, August 16, 2013

Yeah... it looks as good as it tastes. Forget quinoa fried rice. This is a lighter, healthier and more refreshing cold quinoa bowl. And, my friends, it's faster to make. So this recipe is all-around just winning at life. Personally, I love sesame oil. My cousin Denise ...

Potluck Sweet & Spicy Cucumber Salad

By Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Some you of might remember me mentioning my sweet & spicy cucumber salad before. Heck, some of you may have tried it (especially if you were at our housewarming party or if you read my 10 favourite recipes from 2011).   But I have never shared the recipe ...

Sweet & Spicy Chicken

By Friday, March 22, 2013

Quick and easy. That's all I want some nights. It's hard juggle food prep (breakfast, lunches and dinner) as a working woman. I'm very lucky that My Other Half is always willing - and quite able, unlike many men - to pick up the slack, but ...

Healthy Snack #1 – Spicy Kale Chips!

By Thursday, February 28, 2013

A little while ago, I revealed that one of my new year's resolutions was to stop buying chips. I must confess that I have failed, twice... but for two very good reasons. Reason I accidentally bought chips #1 My Other Half and I were grocery shopping together ...

Udon Noodles with Shiitake & Chicken

By Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Mushroom haters, be gone. Seriously though, you people drive me nuts! Do you know how many times I’ve found a recipe I was dying to try, but haven’t been able to because a friend doesn’t eat mushrooms? Hundreds of times. Okay, maybe just dozens. But you know who ...
