Cheese Blintzes

If you’re looking for a good breakfast/brunch idea, you should make some blintzes. I’ve grown up eating these, and I loved them. We would buy them frozen and we just pan fried or baked them. When we were feeling fancier, we would make a blintz soufflé where you bake the frozen blintzes in a simple…

Jalapeno Poppers

Happy Cinco de Mayo! If you received my email newsletter on Monday, I shared a couple of my favourite Mexican recipes there. But there was no way I couldn’t post more Cinco content on my blog! I made such a classic snack today. I guess these are more of a pub food but the main…

Cheese & Caramelized Onion Pinwheels

I love puff pastry because you can make so many different things and the result will always be delicious and super flaky. I had a sheet leftover in my freezer from when I made pigs in a blanket so I decided to use it up. This time I went in a cheesy direction. I made…

Cheese Nachos

To me, nachos are the perfect weekend snack. They great to get at a restaurant patio while drinking a cold beverage. Since most of us are still staying home because of the pandemic, making your own nachos is the way to go for now. Today, I’m sharing a super simple recipe for cheesy nachos. These…

English Muffin Tuna Melts

Do you ever have those days when you just don’t know what to make for lunch or dinner? Well this recipe is for you! I made delicious little open faced tuna melts, which were a great meal with some salad. These have very similar ingredients to the tuna melt panini that I made a little…

Cheese Platter

I know a cheese platter is more of a dish to serve to guests/for a party, but since the pandemic, it’s just been my parents and I. We decided to make one anyways as a nice snack on the weekend. A cheese platter can be as simple or elaborate as you wish, but you need…

Recipe #74: Crispy Kale Pizza with Marinara Sauce

I’m continuing the final stretch of cooking with this kale pizza. I’ve never thought of putting kale on a pizza, but it works surprisingly well. Combining delicious cheese pizza with crispy kale chips, which are both good on their own, somehow taste better together. This pizza uses the same dough as the heirloom tomato pesto…

Recipe #72: Taco Party

I can’t believe that it is the end of February and I only have 9 recipes to go. This cookbook flew by and I’m just so happy with this journey. Using this book has really broadened my mind to the expanse of vegetarian cooking. I also just want to mention that my march newsletter is…

Recipe #59: Roasted Eggplant Lasagna

As you probably know from other recipes I’ve made, I do not like eggplant. Any recipe that calls for it, I would typically substitute with zucchini. I just don’t like the texture and flavour of it, so I’ve stayed away. Upon seeing this recipe, I was going to make the same substitution, but I had…
