Sweet Potato Soup

With the recent hit of super cold weather, what’s better than a hot bowl of soup! Honestly any kind of soup is good but I really like thick and creamy soups – those just hit a different spot. The star of today’s soup is the humble sweet potato. This is one of my favourite ingredients…

(Leftover) Chicken Tacos

Are you one of those people who likes to reinvent leftovers instead of just eating them as they were originally? I definitely feel that because it can be a little boring to eat the same thing several times. A great way to transform any sort of roasted vegetables or chicken is to use them in…

Creamy Goat Cheese Pasta

You know I love pasta, it’s such a great meal for any day of the week and you can go in so many different directions with it. Today’s pasta is super creamy made with goat cheese which is such a delicious ingredient. I love traditional cream sauces like an alfredo but making a roux can…

Sweet & Spicy Cold Tofu

I eat tofu probably once a week and I’m always looking for different ways to prepare it. Most of the time I will either saute or bake it. But today, I wasn’t in the mood for much cooking, so I made this delicious Sweet & Spicy Cold Tofu. When cooking with tofu, I prefer the…

Salmon Rice Paper Rolls

Remember back in the summer, there were those viral Rice Paper Dumplings that everyone was making on Tiktok. And then, a little while after that, came these salmon rice paper rolls which is what I made today. Yes I know, I am way behind in the trends but it’s alright. These have a similar result…

Cauliflower Alfredo

I love pasta alfredo. It usually isn’t the healthiest choice because the sauce classically contains a lot of heavy cream and butter. There are many healthier alternatives out there that are equally delicious. Two varieties that I have made are Cream Cheese Alfredo and Pasta Alfredo with Squash & Broccoli. Today I made a different…

Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes

Today’s recipe was these baked sweet potatoes with roasted chickpeas, garlic herb sauce and a fresh tomato-herb salad. The recipe is from Minimalist Baker (recipe here). It might sound like a lot of components, but everything worked so well together and it was a delicious meal. This is a great vegetarian/vegan meal with lots of…

Quinoa Stuffed Squash

We know that fall is squash season. There are so many ways to prepare squash – roasting, mashing, steaming. Depending on the type of squash, they are perfect for stuffing! Today, I have used acorn squash which is relatively small in size which makes it great for this recipe! This type of squash is also…

Chicken Lettuce Cups

Have you ever had lettuce cups? They’re a cute and fun way to hold delicious fillings. I first saw them made with a Chinese ground meat filling but you could use any variety of ingredients and flavours. One good option would be Mexican-inspired with taco seasoning and then tomato and avocado as garnish. My lettuce…

Squash & Vegetable Soup

You know how much I love soups. This is a really great vegetable soup that I made and had to share with you! There are so many vegetables – carrot, bell pepper, zucchini, butternut squash, corn – so it is quite the colourful soup. When there is such a variety of colours in a dish,…
