Three-Bean, Bell Pepper & Corn Salad

By Wednesday, August 6, 2014

HEALTH. Last week, I told you my big long "trying to be healthy" story. And now I'm trying to prove to you that I actually AM trying to be healthy (not just faking it like I normally do). I mean, this salad HAS to be healthy, right? ...

Margarita Mousse with White Chocolate

By Wednesday, May 21, 2014

This would have been the perfect Cinqo de Mayo recipe! Alas, I am the LEAST timely food blogger and totally dropped the ball. Whoops. We're not dessert people (we normally skip it), but when we have a dinner party, odds are one of our guests lives for ...

Chicken Enchilada-Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

By Wednesday, May 7, 2014

There's a new favourite meal in town. Yup. In an effort to stop eating so many noodles (let's be real, that's never actually happening) I decided to stuff a spaghetti squash with all the deliciousness that is Mexican food.   We loved these so much, we threw our complicated ...

Baked Jalapeño Poppers

By Friday, May 2, 2014

I need a LOT more jalapeño and cheese things in my life. I had a proud moment recently at Costco. The huge frozen box of jalapeño poppers was on sale. And I walked. right. by. Yup. I said NO to a sale AND to jalapeño poppers. I am not ...

Shrimp & Quinoa Skillet Casserole

By Wednesday, April 9, 2014

I love love love love LOVE this meal! Yeah, that's a lot of loves, but I really really do. I want to eat it EVERY DAY. Along with perogies and popcorn and buffalo chicken dip. And noodles. These are a few of my favourite things. Most people think ...

Jalapeño Cheese Tea Biscuits

By Wednesday, March 26, 2014

This recipe is exactly the same as The Best Cheese Tea Biscuits Ever... but the REMIX! Before I get into this recipe, I should say two things – first, I’m sorry it’s Wednesday you’re not getting a cookie recipe. C’est la vie. Secondly, no, I am ...

Avocado, Chickpea & Feta Salad

By Friday, February 21, 2014

I LOVE THIS SALAD. I'm not kidding - it was incredible! And SUPER healthy, so it's My Other Half-approved. Thank goodness. Do you see what I'm trying to do here? I've giving you a healthy recipe and a not-so healthy recipe each week. Aren't I thoughtful? I ...

Baked Chicken Taquitos

By Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Sometimes I make Mexican snacks as supper. Especially when My Other Half isn't around, because, well... most Mexican food it's up to his healthy standards. But there are vegetables in this. So it's okay. Mexican is probably my second favourite type of food ...

BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad

By Wednesday, February 12, 2014

There's a LOT going on in this wicked salad. Flavours galore. I’ve added this to my ever-growing list of delicious quinoa salads, including my Go-To Quinoa Salad and my Chipotle Roasted Vegetable Quinoa Salad. Actually, for a complete list of all my quinoa recipes, ...

Super Easy Beef Enchiladas

By Wednesday, January 15, 2014

I'm making terribly unhealthy things again. I can't help it. Cheese and spice and carbs and sour cream and AVOCADO. These foods are the GOOD foods. The foods I need. Since I'm going to be a bride and all, you'd think I'd be... cutting back? Watching what I ...

Fish Tacos

By Wednesday, November 6, 2013

Taco MANIA!!! Is it just me, or is there a taco phenomenon out there lately? Tacos are to 2013 as cupcakes were to 2010. Fad food. And, obviously, I love it. I am a bandwagon-jumper so I love a good fad. And, I can whole-heartedly jump on the ...

Chipotle BBQ Cocktail Meatballs

By Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Wishing a very happy 91st birthday to my Poppy today! Love you! Everybody likes a good meatball. And no, I’m not referencing Snookie and Deena from Jersey Shore (but yes, I admit to watching that show). I’m talkin’ about the best hors d'œuvres ever! I love it when ...

Super Simple Quesadillas

By Friday, June 7, 2013

I’ve always been pretty independent. For the most part, I don’t mind doing things on my own, and I really enjoy my alone time. It’s when I am most productive and relaxed. This is a good thing, especially since My Other Half travels so much. I ...

Easy Spicy Chicken Enchiladas

By Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Ok, so these are not authentic Mexican enchiladas… more like an Americanized version. Or Canadianized, in this case. I should know because I worked at a truly authentic Mexican restaurant for four years (Feleena’s in the Glebe – it’s the best). But, authentic or not, these ...
