Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

I love fall because of all the squash! I have made so many pumpkin/squash recipes over the years! If you’re looking for some recipe ideas, you can click the links here –> PUMPKIN recipes or SQUASH recipes. The awesome thing about squash is that they come with a bonus inside – the seeds! When roasted,…

Chocolate & Caramel Dipped Apples

For my last post of October, I wanted to make it a festive one! A few days ago, the 28th, it was national chocolate day and tomorrow is national caramel apple day, as well as Halloween. So I thought I would make a cute little snack that would be perfect for all these occasions. Typical…

Sticky Garlic Chicken

I love takeout chinese food. One of my favourite dishes is honey-garlic chicken because it’s a little crispy but soft inside and it’s coated in delicious sweet and sticky sauce. I just adore it. One thing I don’t like as much though, is that most of the dishes are battered and fried, making them a…

Today is a good day because I’m sharing another yummy meal with you! This is another recipe from the Thug Kitchen cookbook – see the whole collection here 🙂 . I’ve made all sorts of pasta sauces – using lentils, real ground beef, other vegetables – but I’ve never tried using chickpeas. I’m pleased to…

Alfajores (Sandwich Cookies)

I realized this week, that I haven’t baked a lot recently. I’ve been making mostly dinners and easy breakfasts/snacks. But today, I changed that. I made a treat called alfajores (pronounced alfa-hor-es) which are sandwich cookies. I believe they originated in Spain, but they are very popular in South America now. The actual cookie is…

Asian Salmon in Foil

After the last couple weeks of fall apple and pumpkin ingredients, I am back to posting regular yummy foods, like baked salmon! The last time I posted about salmon was way back in June, with the Maple Dijon Salmon (link here), so I am due for another recipe sharing. Today I made Asian Salmon in…

Pumpkin Pancakes

I’ve saved the best recipe for the last of pumpkin week! I made these vibrant pumpkin pancakes. The recipe is from Once Upon a Chef (link here). There is no food colouring in these pancakes, the colour comes solely from canned pumpkin puree. Aside from colour, the pumpkin also adds lots of moisture and helps…

Pumpkin Meatballs with Cinnamon-Sage Tomato Sauce

Monday’s pumpkin spice latte (link here) was a great way to start pumpkin week. To continue on with pumpkin posts, I made the perfect fall dinner. I saw this recipe for pumpkin turkey meatballs with a cinnamon-sage tomato sauce and it looked incredible. I knew it would be a wonderful meal and great for this…
