Empanada Eggrolls

Get ready for this recipe. This is sort of my own fusion creation and I’m really proud of how they turned out. Let me explain what I’ve made here. So my dad’s family is from Argentina, I mentioned this in my Alfajores post, and empanadas are another common food there. Empanadas are traditionally a turnover…

Thai Slaw with Peanut Dressing

You know I love coleslaws. You can find many recipes on my blog – just search “coleslaw” in the box at the bottom of the page. The coleslaw I made today was from a website called Cooking Classy (link here). It had lots of Asian/Thai flavours so it was right up my alley. I also…

Vegetable Couscous Fried “Rice”

I can’t believe it’s already the last week of October. These months are just flying by, I can’t wait for the new year to come. But before that, I have some yummy recipes coming up this week. I also have my next email newsletter going out November 2nd. If you have not yet subscribed, you…

Creamy Apple Slaw

As a finale to apple week, I wanted to go in a slightly different direction with a savoury recipe. The apple here is more of a support character rather than the main act, but it still has its time to shine. You may not think to use apples in things like salads and coleslaws but…

Maple & Sriracha Cauliflower

Sweet and spicy might be my favourite flavour combinations. I mean, sweet and salty is up there too but the spice has the slight edge to put it at the top of my list. I love cooking with sweet and spicy, it’s very common in many Asian cuisines. A great vehicle for these flavours is…

Quinoa Pasta Salad

Have you ever tried quinoa pasta? I hadn’t before I made this pasta salad. I won a contest from a brand called GoGo Quinoa and they sent me a big box of some of their products, including quinoa pastas. I thought a nice use of the pasta would be in a pasta salad. I love…

Quinoa & Cauliflower Salad

I was looking for some new salad/side ideas and came across this recipe from Budget Bytes (link here). It’s a delicious salad made with quinoa and roasted cauliflower, and seasoned with some warm spices. There were a few parts to this salad but they come together quite well. This was so yummy and I was…

Cucumber Avocado Salad

To me, summer is the time to have great salads. I’m not just taking about boring lettuce with dressing. There are so many fresh vegetables in season and you can make a delicious side in minutes. The salad I’ve made today is a cucumber-based salad from Cookie & Kate (link here)*. There are lots of…

Green Salad w/ Dijon Dressing

Most of the time, when I cook, I follow the KISS principle – Keep It Super Simple. Great food doesn’t have to be complicated so I usually try to use as few ingredients as possible. Something I have been making for a while is salad dressing. I have never been a big fan of store-bought…

Curried Cauliflower Soup

Hot soup might not be the first food you think of to eat on a summer day, but I love it. I just really like making and eating soups so I enjoy them all year long. This was a creamy cauliflower soup with a little sweetness from apple and kick of flavour from curry powder….
