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),…

Veggie & Pesto Flatbreads

I got a great weekend recipe for you! These are delicious vegetable & pesto flatbreads. I used whole wheat pitas which were the perfect base for this. These would be good to serve to guests or just to have as a lunch for yourself. Don’t get me wrong, I love super cheesy pizza, but sometimes,…

Tortilla Pinwheels

Hope everyone is doing well! This week has been super hot and humid where I live and I know people on the West Coast of Canada/USA have been experiencing crazy heat waves. I hope you’re finding ways to stay cool. In a previous post, I mentioned one strategy to dealing with hot temperatures is by…

Strawberry & Mint Crostini

I love summer for many reasons, but a big one is all the fresh produce that comes in season. Right now, strawberries are peaking so I had to take advantage. I made these super colourful (and a little Christmassy looking) crostini. They are quite simple to prepare and are the perfect little appetizer or snack….

Zucchini Corn Fritters

It’s really been feeling like summer the past couple of weeks and I’m loving it. I’ve wanted to make more “summery” foods and I feel like these fritters are an awesome start. Zucchini and corn are two foods that I commonly associate with this time of the year. They are super fresh and bright. I…

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…

Jalapeno Poppers

Happy Cinco de Mayo! If you received my email newsletter on Monday, I shared a couple of my favourite Mexican recipes there. But there was no way I couldn’t post more Cinco content on my blog! I made such a classic snack today. I guess these are more of a pub food but the main…

“Famous” Brown Bread (Cheesecake Factory copycat)

Is there anything better than freshly baked bread? Few things. Okay, well maybe there are lots of things. But freshly baked bread is definitely up there on the list. I bought a whole pound of yeast at the store (it was a good price) so there is a high chance you will see more breads/other…

Dill Yogurt Dip

I love eating my veggies, but sometimes they can be a little boring on their own. That’s why it’s so fun to make yummy dips! They are also super easy to make in as little as 5 minutes. Using a base of 0% greek yogurt is a healthy way to get a creamy dip without…

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…
