Viral Salmon & Rice

I know you’ve probably seen that viral salmon and rice recipe online. It all started from a girl named Emily Mariko, who posted it on Tiktok and since then, it seems that everyone has been making it. And now it was my turn! I had to put my own twist on the recipe though. I…

Mexican Cauliflower Rice

I am a big fan of cauliflower. It is such a versatile vegetable and I have many blog posts that feature it! Probably my favourite preparation is making CAULIFLOWER WINGS. Check out these posts: Maple & Sriracha Cauliflower or Buffalo Cauliflower Bites. My cauliflower now was starting to go bad so I had to cut…

Pasta Alfredo with Squash & Broccoli

So last week I posted those delicious Zoodles with Chicken and Tomatoes (link here) which was a nice, light dinner (check it out if you didn’t see it). And today, I am sharing a pasta recipe that is equally delicious but definitely not on the lighter side. This is a rich pasta dish with roasted…

Zoodles with Chicken & Tomatoes

Happy October everyone! Squash season is here and I can’t wait to get into those recipes! But today, I am cooking with summer squash – zucchini. Remember when spiralized veggies were super popular? I still love making them. Today’s recipe uses zucchini noodles aka zoodles. This meal was a real throw everything together and use…

Pasta with Pumpkin Marinara

Happy Friday! I am fully embracing the fall and hitting you with another fall recipe. This is pasta with a creamy pumpkin marinara sauce. I found this recipe on Cookie & Kate website (link here). The sauce recipe has the basis of a regular marinara by using onion, bell pepper, crushed tomato, garlic and oregano….

Ground Orange Chicken

Orange chicken is such a great Chinese takeout dish. You have pieces of battered and fried chicken that are coated in a sweet and sticky orange sauce. It’s so delicious but I always feel a little guilty eating it because I know how unhealthy it is. However, today’s recipe is a lightened up spin on…

Fish Piccata

Have you ever had chicken piccata? It’s a classic Italian dish made with sliced chicken breast in a lemon, butter and caper sauce. It is so delicious. It’s a nice light meal because there is no heavy tomato sauce like many other Italian dishes and there is so much lemon juice which brightens everything up….

Homemade Pizza

Apparently it is National Cheese Pizza Day on Sunday (September 5). I don’t need much of a reason to eat pizza, but obviously I had to celebrate this special day. I thought about making cheese pizza but I didn’t want plain cheese pizza. I like having toppings, so that’s what I did. I definitely had…

Rice Paper Dumplings

You know I am always looking for fun food trends. I saw this on TikTok a couple weeks ago and wanted to try it. These are called Rice Paper Dumplings (video here and full recipe here). This is a great vegetarian/vegan recipe to try. Essentially, these have a spring roll filling made with cabbage, carrot,…

Chicken Fajitas

I know I just made tacos last week (check them out – Buffalo Broccoli Tacos) but today is National Fajita Day and I had to celebrate! I just love Mexican food so I will use any excuse to cook some up. I decided to make a relatively traditional fajita with some chicken breast. There was…
