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…

Cream Cheese Alfredo

In keeping with the healthy-eating theme from my last post (Chipotle Caesar Salad), here is another lighter version of a classic. I made alfredo pasta, but you won’t find any heavy cream or butter here. You can happily eat a bowl of this alfredo without feeling heavy or weighed down. Scroll down to see the…

Cauliflower Gnocchi

Before I get into this delicious recipe, I wanted to say that this is going to be my last post of the year. I will be taking the next two weeks off from posting, just to spend time with my family and relax at home. But I am always cooking up new things and I…

Spaghetti Squash Pizza

Is it possible to go wrong with pizza? It’s such a good meal and love mixing up the toppings all the time. Not only can you switch up the toppings, you can do the same for the crust! I’ve tried cauliflower crust before which worked out relatively well. But today, I tried something that I…

Homemade Tortillas + Fish Tacos

If you haven’t seen my last post, the Lemon Butter Tilapia (link here), I highly suggest you do. It was such a good fish preparation. I had a couple pieces leftover the next day so instead of just eating it as is, I made some tacos! You can use any proteins in tacos, it’s a…
