Jalapeno Poppers

Happy Cinco de Mayo! If you received my email newsletter on Monday, I shared a couple of my favourite Mexican recipes there. But there was no way I couldn’t post more Cinco content on my blog! I made such a classic snack today. I guess these are more of a pub food but the main…

“Famous” Brown Bread (Cheesecake Factory copycat)

Is there anything better than freshly baked bread? Few things. Okay, well maybe there are lots of things. But freshly baked bread is definitely up there on the list. I bought a whole pound of yeast at the store (it was a good price) so there is a high chance you will see more breads/other…

General Tso Cauliflower

I don’t have to tell you, but I love battered and baked cauliflower (aka cauliflower wings). I have made them so many times with so many different flavours. I just can’t get enough. My obsession originally began with the buffalo sauce (franks hot sauce + butter/oil) but I have expanded to many other flavour profiles…

Dill Yogurt Dip

I love eating my veggies, but sometimes they can be a little boring on their own. That’s why it’s so fun to make yummy dips! They are also super easy to make in as little as 5 minutes. Using a base of 0% greek yogurt is a healthy way to get a creamy dip without…

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…

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…
