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…

Traditional Osso Buco

I am always looking for new and exciting dinner ideas. I saw beef shanks at the store and immediately I thought to make ossobuco. This is a dish I have never made (or eaten) before but was excited to try! If you like beef stew, you will like ossobuco. It has the same rich and…

Mexican Poutine

Canada may not have too many national dishes, but poutine is definitely one of the most iconic. It is a great combination of crispy fries, cheese curds and a rich gravy. That is the basic level of poutine, but you can add other toppings like veggies or meats. Whenever I go to Montreal, Quebec, I…

Ramen w/ Homemade Broth

Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of chicken noodle soup? To me, this is just the ultimate food to warm me up. Today, I decided to take its classic comfort and add some Japanese flare to make ramen. I have made ramen before (post here) and it was delicious. That time, I used…

Challah (Egg Bread)

I love challah. Being Jewish, I’ve eaten a lot of challah growing up. Can’t get enough of it. Funny though, I’ve never made it from scratch before. I should have gotten into the bread baking back when everyone else was doing it. Oh well, better late than never to get in on the action. I…

Big Macs

I know recreating fast food menu items has been around for a long time. You could watch probably hundreds, if not thousands, of videos online of making all sorts of different things. I hadn’t really taken part too much in that, but ever since I made the McMuffins last month (link here), I wanted to…

Sushi Pizza

National pizza day was yesterday (February 9) and I had to celebrate. I eat regular pizza all the time, so I thought it would be fun to go a little out of the box. Are you ready for this? I made sushi pizza. There is no dough, no tomato sauce and definitely no cheese here….

Zucchini Pesto Pasta

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I love a really easy meal every so often. This pasta dish was definitely one of those occasions. There were only 3 main components to this dish: pasta, zucchini, pesto. Simple recipe is what lead to the straightforward recipe title. Let’s get one…

Italian Wedding Soup

Did you know that despite how the name suggests, Italian wedding soup is not served at Italian weddings. The name comes from the Italian words “minestra maritata” which means “married soup”. It refers to the marriage of flavours from the meat and greens that go into it. I thought that was pretty interesting. Now that…
