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…

Chocolate Bark

I think I’m in a chocolate mood. It’s funny, I don’t even have such a sweet tooth, but recently, I’ve been indulging a little more than usual. Nothing wrong with that though, as long as you don’t go overboard with anything, everything is good in moderation! If you missed my last post – PB &…

PB & B Bites

Tomorrow (December 16) is Chocolate Covered Anything Day. I’m celebrating with a super simple and healthy snack! These are cute little peanut butter and banana sandwiches that are dipped in chocolate. You can dip the whole thing in chocolate but I liked the look of having it half/half. I don’t even know if I can…

Chocolate Overnight Oats

If you’ve been here a while, you may know that I eat a lot of oats. I make myself oatmeal (most of the time overnight oats, like this) once a week. It’s such a great breakfast because it takes minutes to prepare and you can flavour it however you like! Today, I added a little…

Oven Roasted Okra

How often do you find yourself trying new foods? For me, this happened earlier this week with the Jicama-Corn Salsa. I had never tried jicama before and I really enjoyed it. And now, here I am again, with another new food. As you can see by the title, today’s new food was: OKRA. Okra is…

Lemon Coconut Cheesecake

I love cheesecake. It’s so creamy and rich and just the perfect dessert. I’ve made this specific recipe a couple times before, from the Just a Taste blog (link here). I made it originally as the bars and then I made them again, dipped them in chocolate which was incredible! Today’s cheesecake was lemon coconut…

Pickled Radish

Happy December everyone! Crazy that we are almost finished with 2021. It’s really feeling like winter here because it snowed quite a bit a few days ago. I love the snow, as long as I don’t have to go outside in it, so I guess it’s time to start my hibernation! Anyways, my post today…
