Blackened Tilapia

I love cooking (and eating) fish. My fave is salmon, but I like white fishes (tilapia, haddock), and of course tuna too. Incorporating fish into your diet is a great protein option if you’re trying to cut back on meat/poultry. Want some kitchen inspiration? Click the links to see yummy dishes I’ve made –> SALMON…

Sticky Garlic Chicken

I love takeout chinese food. One of my favourite dishes is honey-garlic chicken because it’s a little crispy but soft inside and it’s coated in delicious sweet and sticky sauce. I just adore it. One thing I don’t like as much though, is that most of the dishes are battered and fried, making them a…

Asian Salmon in Foil

After the last couple weeks of fall apple and pumpkin ingredients, I am back to posting regular yummy foods, like baked salmon! The last time I posted about salmon was way back in June, with the Maple Dijon Salmon (link here), so I am due for another recipe sharing. Today I made Asian Salmon in…

Pumpkin Meatballs with Cinnamon-Sage Tomato Sauce

Monday’s pumpkin spice latte (link here) was a great way to start pumpkin week. To continue on with pumpkin posts, I made the perfect fall dinner. I saw this recipe for pumpkin turkey meatballs with a cinnamon-sage tomato sauce and it looked incredible. I knew it would be a wonderful meal and great for this…

Veggie BLT Sandwich

You already know that I enjoy sandwiches. I posted the crispy tofu sandwich last week (link here) and I’m about to share another delicious one with you. Here I’ve made a BLT. Obviously I didn’t use real bacon because I don’t eat pork but I found these veggie bacon strips (brand: Yves Veggie Cuisine) at…

Quinoa Pasta Salad

Have you ever tried quinoa pasta? I hadn’t before I made this pasta salad. I won a contest from a brand called GoGo Quinoa and they sent me a big box of some of their products, including quinoa pastas. I thought a nice use of the pasta would be in a pasta salad. I love…

Crispy Tofu Sandwich

I love a good stuffed sandwich. Today, I made my version of a crispy tofu sandwich. I had some tofu, lettuce, tomato and a little spicy mustard for a punch of flavour. One of my fave ways to prepare tofu is to coat it in breadcrumbs so that it’s like a cutlet. Once it’s coated,…

Spanish Rice

Buckle up because it’s dinner time. I haven’t been posting many full meals recipe – most recent was the INCREDIBLE cashew chicken from a couple weeks ago – so it’s time to change that. I made spanish rice! This is typically a side dish made with rice, diced tomatoes, onions and seasonings. What I made…

Cashew Chicken Stirfry

To me, cashew chicken always seemed like a dish not worth getting from a restaurant. Since it’s pretty much just a stirfry, I felt like I could easily make it myself so it would make more sense for me to get something different (ie. more difficult to make) instead. I don’t know if that makes…

Kung Pao Meatballs

After my very sweet series of posts last week (Almond Blondies, Brown Sugar Blueberry Polenta Scones, Mini Peach Crumble Pies, I thought it would be a good idea to make some savoury food now. I’m starting this week off with some meatballs! These are made with ground chicken (super lean and healthier than ground beef)…
