Curry Roasted Eggplant

Happy Monday! Just like every week, I’m starting mine with a recipe from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. Today’s recipe is one that I did not think I would ever make because I do not typically like eggplant. And it’s funny too, because the little blurb above the recipe even calls out people who claim…

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 Baked Sweet Potatoes

Today’s recipe was these baked sweet potatoes with roasted chickpeas, garlic herb sauce and a fresh tomato-herb salad. The recipe is from Minimalist Baker (recipe here). It might sound like a lot of components, but everything worked so well together and it was a delicious meal. This is a great vegetarian/vegan meal with lots of…

Snickerdoodles

Starting the week with cookies!! If you know me, you know I have been baking and selling cookies – Lindsay Bakes – I started at the beginning of this year. One of the cookie flavours I offer is snickerdoodle. It is a cinnamon dough rolled in cinnamon sugar. It was one of the first flavours…

Quinoa Stuffed Squash

We know that fall is squash season. There are so many ways to prepare squash – roasting, mashing, steaming. Depending on the type of squash, they are perfect for stuffing! Today, I have used acorn squash which is relatively small in size which makes it great for this recipe! This type of squash is also…

Chicken Lettuce Cups

Have you ever had lettuce cups? They’re a cute and fun way to hold delicious fillings. I first saw them made with a Chinese ground meat filling but you could use any variety of ingredients and flavours. One good option would be Mexican-inspired with taco seasoning and then tomato and avocado as garnish. My lettuce…

White Bean & Cabbage Soup

Happy November everyone! I got another soup post because winter is fast approaching. If you didn’t see my last soup post, check that out here –> Squash & Vegetable Soup. Today’s soup is from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. This was another really hearty soup, packed with beans, cabbage and other vegetables. It’s all in…

Squash & Vegetable Soup

You know how much I love soups. This is a really great vegetable soup that I made and had to share with you! There are so many vegetables – carrot, bell pepper, zucchini, butternut squash, corn – so it is quite the colourful soup. When there is such a variety of colours in a dish,…

Fall Baked Brie

Want a delicious appetizer, perfect to serve to family or friends? Baked brie is a great way to go. Brie cheese on its own is fantastic but after baking, it becomes so soft and gooey. Today’s recipe, from Damn Delicious, was fall-inspired. It has brown sugar and a caramel-like topping with nuts (I used walnuts),…

Fattoush

If your favourite part of a salad is the croutons, then fattoush is for you! It is essentially a Mediterranean salad with lots of toasted bread/pita pieces. So you get the goodness of all the veggies but with all the delicious crunchy bread too. This one has a really nice lemon-garlic dressing which was very…
