Pickled Radish

Happy December everyone! Crazy that we are almost finished with 2021. It’s really feeling like winter here because it snowed quite a bit a few days ago. I love the snow, as long as I don’t have to go outside in it, so I guess it’s time to start my hibernation! Anyways, my post today…

Salmon Rice Paper Rolls

Remember back in the summer, there were those viral Rice Paper Dumplings that everyone was making on Tiktok. And then, a little while after that, came these salmon rice paper rolls which is what I made today. Yes I know, I am way behind in the trends but it’s alright. These have a similar result…

Cauliflower Alfredo

I love pasta alfredo. It usually isn’t the healthiest choice because the sauce classically contains a lot of heavy cream and butter. There are many healthier alternatives out there that are equally delicious. Two varieties that I have made are Cream Cheese Alfredo and Pasta Alfredo with Squash & Broccoli. Today I made a different…

Roasted Delicata Squash

I’m eating all the squash that I can before the season is over! Last week I made Quinoa Stuffed Squash and today I’m cooking with delicata squash! I love this squash because they are relatively small in size which makes them easy to cut through. Also, unlike some other squashes, you can actually eat the…

Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes

Today’s recipe was these baked sweet potatoes with roasted chickpeas, garlic herb sauce and a fresh tomato-herb salad. The recipe is from Minimalist Baker (recipe here). It might sound like a lot of components, but everything worked so well together and it was a delicious meal. This is a great vegetarian/vegan meal with lots of…

Quinoa Stuffed Squash

We know that fall is squash season. There are so many ways to prepare squash – roasting, mashing, steaming. Depending on the type of squash, they are perfect for stuffing! Today, I have used acorn squash which is relatively small in size which makes it great for this recipe! This type of squash is also…

Chicken Lettuce Cups

Have you ever had lettuce cups? They’re a cute and fun way to hold delicious fillings. I first saw them made with a Chinese ground meat filling but you could use any variety of ingredients and flavours. One good option would be Mexican-inspired with taco seasoning and then tomato and avocado as garnish. My lettuce…

Squash & Vegetable Soup

You know how much I love soups. This is a really great vegetable soup that I made and had to share with you! There are so many vegetables – carrot, bell pepper, zucchini, butternut squash, corn – so it is quite the colourful soup. When there is such a variety of colours in a dish,…

Fall Baked Brie

Want a delicious appetizer, perfect to serve to family or friends? Baked brie is a great way to go. Brie cheese on its own is fantastic but after baking, it becomes so soft and gooey. Today’s recipe, from Damn Delicious, was fall-inspired. It has brown sugar and a caramel-like topping with nuts (I used walnuts),…

Classic Apple Crisp

Looking for a classic and always delicious dessert? Apple crisp is the way to go! To me, there are two keys to a great crisp: Large chunks of apples. If you cut your apples too small, they will be overbaked and mushy by the time it comes out of the oven. I like when they…
