Homemade Bubble Tea

You may know I like to experiment in the kitchen. It’s fun to make things for the first time. Most recently, I made that stunning crepe cake for my dad’s birthday (check that out here). That turned out so well, I wanted to see what else I could make. Over the past few years, I’ve…

Italian Wedding Soup

Did you know that despite how the name suggests, Italian wedding soup is not served at Italian weddings. The name comes from the Italian words “minestra maritata” which means “married soup”. It refers to the marriage of flavours from the meat and greens that go into it. I thought that was pretty interesting. Now that…

Vegetarian McMuffin Sandwiches

I love breakfast sandwiches. They have all the great components of a nice breakfast – bread, eggs, cheese, meat/sausage – but they’re in a handheld version. And you know I always enjoy eating with my hands. We all know which fast food giant created the McMuffin, it’s been around for a long time. But I’m…

Chocolate Crepe Cake

This was a good one. I made a crepe cake. Yes, cake made of crepes (and whipped cream). It’s a beautiful thing. I made this for my dad’s birthday over the holidays and he absolutely loved it. This was my first time making crepes (and crepe cake) and I was super excited. I used the…

Gingerbread Oatmeal

Let’s get into this bowl of goodness so we can end this week on a great note. This is gingerbread oatmeal which I thought would be the perfect holiday breakfast. I’ve always loved the warm flavours of gingerbread – molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger – and I knew it would be delicious for breakfast. I must…

Cream Cheese Alfredo

In keeping with the healthy-eating theme from my last post (Chipotle Caesar Salad), here is another lighter version of a classic. I made alfredo pasta, but you won’t find any heavy cream or butter here. You can happily eat a bowl of this alfredo without feeling heavy or weighed down. Scroll down to see the…

Cauliflower Gnocchi

Before I get into this delicious recipe, I wanted to say that this is going to be my last post of the year. I will be taking the next two weeks off from posting, just to spend time with my family and relax at home. But I am always cooking up new things and I…

Chanukah Sufganiot (Doughnuts)

Happy Chanukah! I did a thing. I made sufganiot (soof-gan-ee-ot) which are filled doughnuts. I wasn’t planning on having this post because my family usually just buys some from a bakery, but 2020 has already been so wild, why not just make our own doughnuts this year! This was actually my first time ever! Found…

Spaghetti Squash Pizza

Is it possible to go wrong with pizza? It’s such a good meal and love mixing up the toppings all the time. Not only can you switch up the toppings, you can do the same for the crust! I’ve tried cauliflower crust before which worked out relatively well. But today, I tried something that I…

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

The holiday season is here. Chanukah starts tomorrow, so I’m super excited for that. I can’t wait to stuff my face with latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (doughnuts). Those are the two most commonly eaten foods on this holiday. If you want to make your own latkes this year, you can check out two of…
