Oven Fried Pickles

Last week I made those delicious jalapeno poppers (link here). They were cheesy, crunchy and a little spicy. They were so tasty. Now I’m here to make another classic pub snack. Breaded pickles. I feel like this is quite the polarizing recipe because pickles themselves are either loved or hated by people. But I think…

Birthday Cake Oatmeal

If you’ve been here a while, you may have heard me mention that I started my own cookie business called Lindsay Bakes. I currently have 7 flavours available, one of them being Confetti, which is packed with colourful sprinkles. It is in my top 3 favourite flavours. That got me thinking, why are sprinkles only…

Argentinian Chicken Thighs

I eat a lot of chicken. It’s probably my most consumed protein source and I’ve eaten it so many different ways. Because of that, I’m always looking for new ways to cook/flavour it. I was at the store and I was looking at the seasoning mixes – down the Ethnic/Mexican aisle – and I happened…

Jalapeno Poppers

Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

So a few weeks ago I made PB & J cookies which were delicious – nothing better than peanut butter, banana and jam together. This recipe today is actually from the same person (@nataliesnaturalfood on Instagram). These are blueberry oatmeal bars (link here). There are only a few ingredients in these bars, the main one…

Sweet Potato Muffins

It’s Friday! We’ve made it to the weekend. It’s time to relax and take it easy. Why not do a little baking. How about some muffins? I made these sweet potato muffins, recipe from Feel Good Foodie (link here). I’ve made all kinds of muffins before with a variety of fresh ingredients like apples, bananas…

Coconut Crusted Sole w/ Mango Salsa

Two things I really enjoy: fish and coconut. I’ve heard of coconut crusted proteins (most commonly fish or chicken) before but I’ve never tried it. I saw this recipe for coconut crusted fish from Spruce Eats (link here) and I knew it was time. The recipe calls for any firm white fish. I used sole…

Chicken Romanesque

For those days when you want a warm and comforting meal, this is a dish you have to make. It is called Chicken Romanesque and the recipe is from the cookbook 365 Ways to Cook Chicken. This is a delicious meal of chicken and pasta, baked in a rich tomato sauce. It makes enough to…
