Mama’s Ginger Cookies

By Friday, December 18, 2015

These cookies are my childhood! I can remember my mother making these cookies countless times. Seriously! At least every Christmas, if not a couple more times throughout the year. They were always one of my very favourites. These are chewy, chewy, chewy! My favourite kind of cookie. ...

Vanilla Butter Meltaways

By Tuesday, December 15, 2015

Christmas baking!!! I've seen a billion recipes for "meltaway" cookies on Pinterest lately, so I decided to see what all the hype is about! I made a few versions before I found a really good one, that seriously melts in your mouth. Basically, all the recipes are ...

Rocky Road Brownies

By Thursday, December 10, 2015

Brownies... on steroids!!! Do brownies classify as Christmas baking? Maybe not, but whatever. These are festive enough for me. And twice as good as some of the dry baked goods you can find lurking around this time of year :) You get me?! Most Christmas sweets do ...

Gingerbread Muffins

By Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Well... I'm obsessed. Honestly, I'm not a huge gingerbread person. I couldn't care less about gingerbread cookies or houses (although building them is fun!) and normally would pass them up. But a moist, chewy muffin that melts in your mouth? I'm all over it. I guess I'm ...

Dark Cherry Italian Sodas

By Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Non-alcoholic beverages for the win! I've had to get creative with this whole pregnancy thing. I've mentioned my obsession with SanPellegrino, but a few weekends ago I was craving something a little more... complex. I love making cocktails at home with My Other Half, and I've been ...

Sahlab (Creamy, Hot Middle Eastern Drink)

By Thursday, November 26, 2015

You might be wondering - what the heck is sahlab? I thought the same thing when a friend of mine, Evelyn, contacted me and asked me to try it out. For one of her classes at Carleton University, she and some classmates launched a non-profit online store, ...

Spinach & Ricotta Lasagna Rolls

By Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Psst - thanks a million for all the love on yesterday's post and video. You guys are the best! It's HUMP DAY! And I am loving meat-free dishes lately! When My Other Half is away, I rarely eat meat at home. I just can't be bothered, unless ...

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. ...

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Wednesday, November 11, 2015

Before today's post, I'd like to take a moment to mention Remembrance Day and all the veterans who sacrificed so we can live as we do today - especially my Poppy. Lest we forget. Would you like a COOKIE? I have this problem with chocolate chip cookies. ...

Pumpkin Pie Squares

By Friday, November 6, 2015

Pumpkin EVERYTHING! I was seriously perturbed and surprised when I saw that Starbucks released its red cups this week. Like... already?! I also have a personal pet peeve when it comes to Christmas stuff before Remembrance Day... but that's probably because Remembrance Day is particularly special ...

Peanut Sesame Veggie Noodles

By Wednesday, November 4, 2015

I call this one of my single girl recipes! Not that I am single (you guys know I am happily married), but since My Other Half travels so often, I'm always trying to come up with easy and quick weeknight dinners that are simple to throw together ...

Autumn Apple Galette

By Friday, October 30, 2015

Once upon a time, I woke up and decided to make an autumn Apple Galette! Seriously, it's that simple. Although I'm not a dessert person, I LOVE galettes. Especially berry ones, like this one from two summers ago. Or this Butternut Squash Galette with Brown Butter and Crispy ...

Cheesy Pumpkin Pasta Bake

By Wednesday, October 28, 2015

Ahhhh October is almost over!!! I really cannot believe it. Yesterday was my birthday, and it really snuck up on me this year! I cannot believe that one year ago, I was having the time of my life with 18 of my best girlfriends at my ...

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

By Friday, October 23, 2015

I am so excited today! About this pizza, but also because... Today I am going to Montreal for the Food Bloggers of Canada Conference!!! In its third year, I've always wanted to go, but the last two were in Vancouver and unfortunately that was just too far ...

Whole Wheat Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes

By Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Lately I've been going ALL OUT with breakfast! My Other Half is definitely the breakfast maker in our little family, which he inherited from his dad, but I'm the pancake maker (he normally does bacon and eggs and things). Since we stopped buying pancake mix a ...

Addiction Bars!

By Friday, October 16, 2015

In my language, Friday means TREAT DAY! Today I'm sharing a recipe that my entire family has been making for YEARS. I grew up eating these! As I've mentioned before, my mother gave me hand-written recipe cards of all the family favourites as part of my wedding ...

Easy Soft Pretzels

By Thursday, October 15, 2015

Oktoberfest caused this. One lazy Saturday afternoon, I looked at My Other Half and was like "wanna make soft preztels?!" and he was like "Umm, YES!" And so this happened. These were SO easy. And you know how obsessed I am with using yeast (since I learned ...

Healthy Buffalo Chicken Rolls

By Friday, October 2, 2015

I save all my best recipes for Fridays! Fridays are my favourite because I give myself free reign to eat whatever treats I want. Which usually means cheese fondue or charcuterie and wine. Or pasta. Or nachos! Any of the good things. You know how I went ...
