Big Macs

I know recreating fast food menu items has been around for a long time. You could watch probably hundreds, if not thousands, of videos online of making all sorts of different things. I hadn’t really taken part too much in that, but ever since I made the McMuffins last month (link here), I wanted to…

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…

Pesto Spaghetti Squash

Happy October! I know fall technically starts September 21 but I feel like once we get to October, that’s when it really sets in. So in honour of that, I made a recipe using a fall-ey ingredient – squash! To be more specific, I used spaghetti squash, which is one of my faves. Not only…

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…

Zucchini Banana Bread

I always seem to have overripe bananas at home. I get a bunch of bananas at the store and a few days later, they’ve passed their prime for me to eat. My favourite thing to do with them is bake! The obvious (and delicious) choice is to make banana bread/muffins. What I’ve made isn’t just…

Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Here I am with another recipe from the Thug Kitchen cookbook! This one was a really easy one and I had no doubts that it would turn out well. This was a really simple preparation of sweet potatoes. They are coated with maple syrup, chili powder and smoked paprika, then get roasted in a pretty…

Pigs in a Blanket

Sometimes, easy recipes are the best ones to make. Here is an incredibly simple snack/side dish and I can hardly believe I have never made them before. So like the title says, and as you can see in the picture, I made pigs in a blanket! Pigs = hot dogs, blanket = pastry dough. The…

Cashew Chicken Stirfry

To me, cashew chicken always seemed like a dish not worth getting from a restaurant. Since it’s pretty much just a stirfry, I felt like I could easily make it myself so it would make more sense for me to get something different (ie. more difficult to make) instead. I don’t know if that makes…

Kung Pao Meatballs

After my very sweet series of posts last week (Almond Blondies, Brown Sugar Blueberry Polenta Scones, Mini Peach Crumble Pies, I thought it would be a good idea to make some savoury food now. I’m starting this week off with some meatballs! These are made with ground chicken (super lean and healthier than ground beef)…

Cheddar & Green Onion Scones

I know I just posted that egg & cheese breakfast sandwich the other day (link here), which was super tasty, but I wanted to share another yummy breakfast idea. I’ve also been on quite a cheesy/dairy streak recently – my last posts were Cheesy Nachos, Chocolate Covered Cheesecake and now here we have cheese in…
