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….

Broccoli Salad

How does everyone feel about raw broccoli? I feel like most people (including me) aren’t big fans because it’s just so dry and boring on its own. However, when it’s mixed with yummy ingredients and a zippy dressing, it’s way more enjoyable. I mean, I was a little skeptical about the idea at first, my…

Sweet Potato Fries (w/ Spicy Mayo)

Before I get into this post, I wanted to explain why I didn’t post anything last week. I had my posts for the week all drafted and ready to go because I don’t like to do anything last minute. But over the weekend (end of May), with all the protests and violence happening in the…

Creamy Coleslaw

If you are looking for a break from traditional lettuce salads, coleslaw is a great alternative. I’ve made several coleslaw recipes on my blog, you can make it as simple or complex as you like. The recipe I made today was on the simpler side, funnily enough, from a website called Simply Recipes (link here)….

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Buffalo cauliflower is one of my go-to appetizer/side dishes to make. I love everything about them – tender cauliflower, crispy batter and spicy buffalo sauce. I’ve made them several times and I always use the same recipe from Tasty (link here). I make a couple adjustments to the process: Reduce the oven temperature to 425หš…

Corny Corn Muffins

Is there a difference between cornbread and corn muffins? According to the internet, corn muffins are usually sweeter and cornbread more savoury. I’m not that much of a connoisseur on the matter, so they’re pretty much one in the same for me. I usually make cornbread/ muffins as a side for chili or soups, it’s…

Korean Scallion Pancakes

Not sure what specifically about these pancakes, but I’ve wanted to try them for a little while. I just love green onions and thought it would be so tasty in a savoury pancake. The Korean name for them is ‘Pa Jun’ or ‘Pa Jeon’. They are supposed to be served with a soy dipping sauce…

Crunchy Edamame Salad

TGIF! Wait who am I kidding? Every day since being in quarantine has felt like Friday for me. However, I know there are still all the essential workers who are out there doing what they do, so I hope they get some time to relax this weekend. I also just want to say thank you…

Potato-Onion Knishes

This post today is about something I have only made a couple times in my life: potato knishes. It’s been 2 years ago since I last made them, you can see that post here. I don’t know why I don’t make them more often, they’re so tasty. A knish is a potato (but can be…
