Sweet Potato Al Pastor

I love when you can make a recipe and then use that prepared food in another recipe. That’s what happened for me. I made the delicious Pineapple Salsa last week (link here) and used the leffovers as a toppings for these veggie tacos. It was great double duty and nothing went to waste! So just…

Creamy Squash Mac and Cheese

Wow it’s already the last week of January! This Monday’s Thug Kitchen recipe was a creamy one. This is the Creamy Squash Mac and Cheese with Hot Sauce Bread Crumbs. As you know, this cookbook is vegan, so there was no cheese or milk in the pasta dish. The sauce was made by blending up…

Lemon Butter Tilapia

Since my blackened tilapia from a couple weeks ago was such a success, and I had lots of fish leftover in my freezer, it was time to make another fish dish! This time, I made lemon butter tilapia from Food.com (link here). This was such a simple recipe with so few ingredients. You just coat…

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…

Chickpea Bolognese

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ . 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…

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…

Crispy Tofu Sandwich

I love a good stuffed sandwich. Today, I made my version of a crispy tofu sandwich. I had some tofu, lettuce, tomato and a little spicy mustard for a punch of flavour. One of my fave ways to prepare tofu is to coat it in breadcrumbs so that it’s like a cutlet. Once it’s coated,…

Spanish Rice

Buckle up because it’s dinner time. I haven’t been posting many full meals recipe – most recent was the INCREDIBLE cashew chicken from a couple weeks ago – so it’s time to change that. I made spanish rice! This is typically a side dish made with rice, diced tomatoes, onions and seasonings. What I made…

Korean Beef Bowl

You already know how much I love Chinese and Korean flavours when I cook. I probably eat something in those cuisines at least once a week. This korean beef bowl is one of my faves. The original recipe is from Damn Delicious (recipe link) and it is so tasty. I have made the recipe as…

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…
