Coffee Cake Muffins

TGIF! Got any plans for the weekend? Why not do some baking? I have the perfect recipe for you! I made these coffee cake muffins and they are the perfect afternoon snack! They are also a good light breakfast with tea or coffee. I got the recipe from damn delicious (link here). It’s been a…

Spanakopita Triangles

Cooking with pastry is great if you want a quick meal/snack idea. You can use it with savoury things but also sweet ones too. I’ve used puff pastry several times for different occasions – some examples are Cheese & Onion Pinwheels and Pigs in a Blanket. Another pastry that is also popular but I haven’t…

Tahini Fudge

I am not a big fan of tahini but my mom loves it so she wanted me to make this recipe. So I made it for her but I tried to keep an open mind for myself too. Also, I’m not a big fudge eater, it’s just usually way too sweet and I can only…

Empanada Eggrolls

Get ready for this recipe. This is sort of my own fusion creation and I’m really proud of how they turned out. Let me explain what I’ve made here. So my dad’s family is from Argentina, I mentioned this in my Alfajores post, and empanadas are another common food there. Empanadas are traditionally a turnover…

Thai Slaw with Peanut Dressing

You know I love coleslaws. You can find many recipes on my blog – just search “coleslaw” in the box at the bottom of the page. The coleslaw I made today was from a website called Cooking Classy (link here). It had lots of Asian/Thai flavours so it was right up my alley. I also…

(Not Terrible) Lentil Soup

Yes, it is Monday so this is another recipe from Thug Kitchen 101. The name of this really is “Not Terrible Lentil Soup”. I guess it’s pretty common to have bad lentil soup, I fortunately have never experienced that. But I can say that this soup was quite delicious. I liked that it was a…

Blackened Tilapia

I love cooking (and eating) fish. My fave is salmon, but I like white fishes (tilapia, haddock), and of course tuna too. Incorporating fish into your diet is a great protein option if you’re trying to cut back on meat/poultry. Want some kitchen inspiration? Click the links to see yummy dishes I’ve made –> SALMON…

Banana Nice Cream Bars

I don’t know why, but I love eating frozen treats when the weather gets cold. I guess it is along the same lines as people drinking hot coffee in the summer? Either way, I made this delicious dessert and had to share! I follow this account on instagram (@nataliesnaturalfood) and she made these banana nice…

Southwestern Pasta Salad

It’s Monday so I have another Thug Kitchen 101 recipe to share! Today I have the Southwestern Pasta Salad. I love pasta salads because they are a great make ahead dish so they’re perfect for parties or weekly meal planning. Another reason to love them is that you can use up so many ingredients in…

French Toast with Apples

Mmm french toast. In my house, this meal was usually saved for a special occasion or weekends. Maybe that’s why I love it so much. Hopefully you will make it this weekend and love it as much as I do 🙂 . This is a very easy recipe with some nice fall flavours. I kept…
