Plum Salsa

The last recipe I made was the roasted corn salsa which you should definitely check out, and today I have another salsa recipe. This is a plum salsa so it is fruity, but it is super fresh and perfect for the warmer weather. There are not too many ingredients in the salsa which makes it…

Blackberry Sage Oat Bars

You already know I love oats and oatmeal so making oat-based bars is also right up my alley. These are the Blackberry Sage Oat Bars from the Brave New Meal cookbook. Right off the bat, I could see this recipe is similar to the blueberry thyme preserves from a few recipes back, where it has…

Orange Cinnamon Morning Rolls & Maple Kumquat Preserves

It is a new week and I am excited to continue along with the Brave New Meal cookbook and get back on track with a good recipe. Today I made the orange cinnamon morning rolls. Because my last yeast dough experience went quite well with the blueberry thyme marble rolls (link here) I was excited…

Blueberry Thyme Marble Rolls

Bread. I love to eat it but I do not have that much experience making it. Today’s recipe is these blueberry thyme rolls which isn’t a bread per se but it’s still involves a yeast dough so that’s close enough for me. I think the main reason I don’t usually make bread is because of…

Colourful Rice Salad

On Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), it is tradition to eat certain foods, called simanim (see-ma-neem). For the most part, these are sweet items because you want to start the new year on a sweet note. The foods that I am using today – from the selection of simanim – are apples, honey, beets and…

Baked Peaches

Peaches might be my ultimate summer fruit. When they are in season, my family always buys a whole bunch of them… weekly. And they do not go to waste! Mostly, we just eat them fresh but sometimes, it’s nice to bake with them. I love making crisps/crumbles but sometimes you want a dessert that’s easy…

Almond Cake with Peach Caramel

This Monday’s Thug Kitchen recipe was such a good one. It is an almond cake with a delicious peach caramel. This may be my favourite dessert from this cookbook to date. Let’s start with the cake. When you think of an almond cake, you expect it to be made of almond flour/ground almonds or at…

PB & Fruit Smoothie

I’ve been eating quite a lot of berries recently, specifically blueberries. They’re just so good – taste-wise and nutritionally – and they’ve been on sale recently so I like to always have them on hand. A few weeks ago, I posted the incredible Blueberry Cheesecake French Toast and today I’m back with another blueberry recipe!…

Creamsicles

Is there a better summer treat than a popsicle? I don’t think so. Sure you can go out and buy a pack from the store, but they are pretty easy to make yourself too. In addition to simplicity, they are also very customizable. You can make a popsicle out of almost anything. Basically if it…

Fruity Spinach Salad

I’m loving the summer recipes I’ve been making recently. My last post was crostini with fresh strawberries (link here) and this post is also featuring the beautiful berry. This recipe is a delicious and very colourful spinach salad. I’ve used a base of spinach but you could use romaine lettuce or mixed greens instead. The…
