Weekly Roundup: Kugel & Burrito Bowl

Wow I can’t believe October is pretty much finished, it really feels like it just started. Before we know it, it’s going to be new years, it’s crazy how fast time is flying. Anyways, I got two savoury dishes today – one is a side and one is a main. – Zucchini Kugel: I love…

Burger with Roasted Sides

This week was not very a good cooking week. The only post I have of food is my meal from Monday which You can see and I will talk about shortly. The rest of the week was sort of a blur, I was very busy and also the fast of Yom Kippur happened so obviously…

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…

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…

Roasted Delicata Squash

I’m eating all the squash that I can before the season is over! Last week I made Quinoa Stuffed Squash and today I’m cooking with delicata squash! I love this squash because they are relatively small in size which makes them easy to cut through. Also, unlike some other squashes, you can actually eat the…

Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice

Happy Friday! I’m back with my second cauliflower rice recipe. If you missed my first one, earlier this week, I made Mexican cauliflower rice – definitely check it out! Today’s cauliflower rice recipe is more of a side dish, rather than a main course. However, you can easily serve it with your protein of choice…

Smashed Potatoes

Potatoes. One of the most versatile vegetables. I have used potatoes in countless ways before, but this is one I have never tried. Smashed potatoes are made by a two step cooking process: first boiling, then baking. After the potatoes are boiled, they get “smashed” which increases the surface area and allows for them to…

Pumpkin Spice Roasted Carrots

Well it’s officially fall! That means it’s pumpkin spice time! Now you may be thinking, “isn’t that more of a dessert and coffee thing?”, and you are right.. usually. But putting a little pumpkin spice on some vegetables before roasting is so incredible. Trust me. My go-to seasoning for roasted veggies is typically just olive…

Colourful Rice Salad

On Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), it is tradition to eat certain foods, called simanim (see-ma-neem). For the most part, these are sweet items because you want to start the new year on a sweet note. The foods that I am using today – from the selection of simanim – are apples, honey, beets and…

Cucumber Salad

Do you ever buy an ingredient for a recipe that you don’t usually use when you cook? That’s what happened to me. I bought a bunch of dill for my last post (Shredded Apple Polenta) but I wanted to use up the leftovers before it went bad. So I went with the obvious choice –…
