(Easier than Pie) Soda Bread

I’ve never done much bread baking, I just don’t have the patience to wait for dough to rise or energy for kneading. But, when a quick bread or something similar comes up, I’ll happily make it. This Easier than Pie Soda Bread from Thug Kitchen cookbook seemed pretty easy and approachable to make. The recipe…

Gingerbread Oatmeal

Let’s get into this bowl of goodness so we can end this week on a great note. This is gingerbread oatmeal which I thought would be the perfect holiday breakfast. I’ve always loved the warm flavours of gingerbread – molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger – and I knew it would be delicious for breakfast. I must…

Cream Cheese Alfredo

In keeping with the healthy-eating theme from my last post (Chipotle Caesar Salad), here is another lighter version of a classic. I made alfredo pasta, but you won’t find any heavy cream or butter here. You can happily eat a bowl of this alfredo without feeling heavy or weighed down. Scroll down to see the…

Chipotle Caesar Salad

Happy new year! We made it to 2021. I hope we all have a good year and continue to stay safe until we can get to the other side of the pandemic. Like with any new year, most people create resolutions. Often times, one of those resolutions is to eat healthier. My blog is loaded…

Cauliflower Gnocchi

Before I get into this delicious recipe, I wanted to say that this is going to be my last post of the year. I will be taking the next two weeks off from posting, just to spend time with my family and relax at home. But I am always cooking up new things and I…

Chanukah Sufganiot (Doughnuts)

Happy Chanukah! I did a thing. I made sufganiot (soof-gan-ee-ot) which are filled doughnuts. I wasn’t planning on having this post because my family usually just buys some from a bakery, but 2020 has already been so wild, why not just make our own doughnuts this year! This was actually my first time ever! Found…

Cinnamon Kettle Corn

If you know me, you know I will always say yes to popcorn. It’s one of my favourite snacks. I could easily give myself a stomach ache from eating too much but it’d be worth it haha. I’m also not very picky when it comes to popcorn – I like it plain, with salt, cheesy,…

Spaghetti Squash Pizza

Is it possible to go wrong with pizza? It’s such a good meal and love mixing up the toppings all the time. Not only can you switch up the toppings, you can do the same for the crust! I’ve tried cauliflower crust before which worked out relatively well. But today, I tried something that I…

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

The holiday season is here. Chanukah starts tomorrow, so I’m super excited for that. I can’t wait to stuff my face with latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (doughnuts). Those are the two most commonly eaten foods on this holiday. If you want to make your own latkes this year, you can check out two of…

Turmeric & Sweet Potato Soup

I’ve made a lot of soups in my life. And I feel like every time I post about soup, I tell you how much I love soup. Well I’m here today to keep that streak alive! Since it’s Monday, this soup is another recipe from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. The name of it only…
