Honey Cake

I know I have posted about this honey cake before. It is made every year in my house for Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year). It is just such a delicious cake because is light and fluffy, and nicely sweetened, which is perfect for the occasion. This cake has 3 forms of sweetness – white sugar,…

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….

Colourful Rice Salad

On Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), it is tradition to eat certain foods, called simanim (see-ma-neem). For the most part, these are sweet items because you want to start the new year on a sweet note. The foods that I am using today – from the selection of simanim – are apples, honey, beets and…

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…

Baked Peaches

Peaches might be my ultimate summer fruit. When they are in season, my family always buys a whole bunch of them… weekly. And they do not go to waste! Mostly, we just eat them fresh but sometimes, it’s nice to bake with them. I love making crisps/crumbles but sometimes you want a dessert that’s easy…

Chocolate Cherry Blondies

I’ve been loving the summer fruits that are in season right now. But sometimes I go a little overboard at the grocery store and I can’t eat them fast enough, so they start to go bad. When that happens, the best option is to bake with them! Today, my fruit was cherries. I had so…

Cucumber Salad

Do you ever buy an ingredient for a recipe that you don’t usually use when you cook? That’s what happened to me. I bought a bunch of dill for my last post (Shredded Apple Polenta) but I wanted to use up the leftovers before it went bad. So I went with the obvious choice –…

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…

Buffalo Broccoli Tacos

Happy Friday! Let’s end the week with some tacos! These are a great vegan/vegetarian recipe to enjoy tacos in a healthy way I know you’ve probably heard of buffalo cauliflower – I’ve made it so many times. It is always delicious and packs such a great punch with the hot sauce. I wanted to take…
