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 ...

Mexican Macaroni Salad

By Friday, November 13, 2015

I realize barbecue season is over... but YUM! My Other Half and I recently had a mini-vacation in the southern U.S., where barbecues are everywhere. All I wanted was macaroni and cheese (I LOVE PASTA) and when we finally went to get barbecue, they didn't have any. ...

Marinated Greek Salad

By Friday, September 25, 2015

Big, chunky GREEK SALAD! We don’t eat enough Greek salad. Every time I plan to make it, I use up all my feta in this salad. Which should come as no surprise since it’s my favourite salad of all time. But anyway. I finally splurged on some ...

Crunchy Thai Chicken Salad

By Wednesday, June 24, 2015

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 ...

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. ...

Tangy Thai Cucumber Salad

By Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Chickpea, Corn & Tomato Salad

By Friday, August 8, 2014

This salad is ADDICTIVE! I'm actually going nuts over it and want to make it again and again. I think it's the dressing. Because you HEAT IT UP. I never use heat when I make dressings but this totally changed the flavours. For the better. I would ...

I'm the worst. But this naan is the BEST. Seriously, though - how long ago did I make this naan bread? A long time. And I promised I'd blog about it ASAP. And here I am, a month later. Oooops. Hopefully you can forgive me. So there's ...

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 ...
