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…

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…

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

I love fall because of all the squash! I have made so many pumpkin/squash recipes over the years! If you’re looking for some recipe ideas, you can click the links here –> PUMPKIN recipes or SQUASH recipes. The awesome thing about squash is that they come with a bonus inside – the seeds! When roasted,…

Cheese & Caramelized Onion Pinwheels

I love puff pastry because you can make so many different things and the result will always be delicious and super flaky. I had a sheet leftover in my freezer from when I made pigs in a blanket so I decided to use it up. This time I went in a cheesy direction. I made…

Pigs in a Blanket

Sometimes, easy recipes are the best ones to make. Here is an incredibly simple snack/side dish and I can hardly believe I have never made them before. So like the title says, and as you can see in the picture, I made pigs in a blanket! Pigs = hot dogs, blanket = pastry dough. The…

Cheese Nachos

To me, nachos are the perfect weekend snack. They great to get at a restaurant patio while drinking a cold beverage. Since most of us are still staying home because of the pandemic, making your own nachos is the way to go for now. Today, I’m sharing a super simple recipe for cheesy nachos. These…
