Baked Peaches

Peaches might be my ultimate summer fruit. When they are in season, my family always buys a whole bunch of them… weekly. And they do not go to waste! Mostly, we just eat them fresh but sometimes, it’s nice to bake with them. I love making crisps/crumbles but sometimes you want a dessert that’s easy…

Dan Dan Noodles

I feel like I say this every month, but August has flown by! I have made so many delicious things and I can’t believe this is the last one. Not to worry though, I have lots coming up in September, so be on the lookout for that! Also, with a new month coming up, that…

Chocolate Cherry Blondies

I’ve been loving the summer fruits that are in season right now. But sometimes I go a little overboard at the grocery store and I can’t eat them fast enough, so they start to go bad. When that happens, the best option is to bake with them! Today, my fruit was cherries. I had so…

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 –…

Shredded Apple Polenta with Dill

If you have never tried cooking through a cookbook, I would highly recommend it! Thug Kitchen 101 is now my 3rd cookbook that I’m going through and it’s just so much fun. One big reason why I love doing this is because it gets me to try new things – whether that’s a new recipe…

Rice Paper Dumplings

You know I am always looking for fun food trends. I saw this on TikTok a couple weeks ago and wanted to try it. These are called Rice Paper Dumplings (video here and full recipe here). This is a great vegetarian/vegan recipe to try. Essentially, these have a spring roll filling made with cabbage, carrot,…

Chicken Fajitas

I know I just made tacos last week (check them out – Buffalo Broccoli Tacos) but today is National Fajita Day and I had to celebrate! I just love Mexican food so I will use any excuse to cook some up. I decided to make a relatively traditional fajita with some chicken breast. There was…

Almond Cake with Peach Caramel

This Monday’s Thug Kitchen recipe was such a good one. It is an almond cake with a delicious peach caramel. This may be my favourite dessert from this cookbook to date. Let’s start with the cake. When you think of an almond cake, you expect it to be made of almond flour/ground almonds or at…

Buffalo Broccoli Tacos

Happy Friday! Let’s end the week with some tacos! These are a great vegan/vegetarian recipe to enjoy tacos in a healthy way I know you’ve probably heard of buffalo cauliflower – I’ve made it so many times. It is always delicious and packs such a great punch with the hot sauce. I wanted to take…

Chicken Parmesan

Chicken parmesan is such a comporting Italian dish. You have the crispy breaded chicken, rich tomato sauce and then beautifully melted cheese. It’s so delicious. With that being said, I’ve never made it myself because of religious dietary restrictions. I eat chicken and cheese but not supposed to eat them together. However, over the past…
