Colourful Stirfry (using LEFTOVERS)

This week started with Rosh Hashanah and since we cooked a whole bunch of food for that, we’ve just been eating the leftovers the past few days. For the most part, we’ve just been eating the dishes as they are. But for today’s post, we got a little creative. This was a delicious stirfry with…

Weekly Roundup: Muffins & Barley Soup

Hello everyone, hope your Fall is off to a great start. The weather where I live has dropped significantly in the past couple of days so all I want to do is curl up on the couch in comfy clothes. It’s also just been a busy week for me between work and life, so my…

Weekly Roundup: Soup, Rice Rolls & Stirfry

It’s been a little weird not posting several times this week, but let’s see how this goes. Please let me know if you like this new format of posting! Like I said in my last post this is a big experiment for me, so any advice is greatly appreciated! But here I am, ready for…

Agua Fresca

I am finishing off the week with a drink because who doesn’t want a nice refreshing beverage to celebrate the weekend! There were actually a couple other drink recipes before this one but I skipped them due to personal preferences. This is agua fresca which just means fresh water (or cool water). It is made…

Banana Date Shake

So here we are at the final section of recipes in the book – drinks and desserts. This shake is a nice start here. This could be a dessert or even a morning beverage. I have had smoothies similar to this one before, it is just made with banana, nut butter, dates, cinnamon and non…

Simple Sesame Noodles

I have made it to the final main dish recipe of this cookbook!! That’s pretty wild to me that I only have one more section of recipes to go. This was quite a good ending though I’m so happy with how is cookbook has gone so far. So today’s recipe is these sesame noodles with…

Toulatos-Style Stuffed Bell Peppers

I have made it to almost the end of the main dishes section of this cookbook. This book is flying by and then I only have desserts and drinks remaining. But for now, let’s focus on today’s recipe: stuffed peppers. Well, the recipe says you can use large tomatoes or peppers but I much prefer…

Zucchini Blossom Pasta

My last post was a super summery tomato tart (check it out) and today’s recipe is another perfect summer dish. This was zucchini (blossom) pasta which was a great weeknight meal. I put blossom in brackets before because the recipe is supposed to have them, but unfortunately, I had to make do without them. Apparently,…

Coconut Green Curry with Avocado

I know it’s the middle of summer so you wouldn’t think that a Thai curry would be a good meal, but it actually is. This is a green curry which is pretty mild, especially compared to red, and it is packed with fresh veggies. It is quite a bright and flavourful dish. This was really…
