Ramen w/ Homemade Broth

Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of chicken noodle soup? To me, this is just the ultimate food to warm me up. Today, I decided to take its classic comfort and add some Japanese flare to make ramen. I have made ramen before (post here) and it was delicious. That time, I used…

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…

Homemade Bubble Tea

You may know I like to experiment in the kitchen. It’s fun to make things for the first time. Most recently, I made that stunning crepe cake for my dad’s birthday (check that out here). That turned out so well, I wanted to see what else I could make. Over the past few years, I’ve…

Vegetarian McMuffin Sandwiches

I love breakfast sandwiches. They have all the great components of a nice breakfast – bread, eggs, cheese, meat/sausage – but they’re in a handheld version. And you know I always enjoy eating with my hands. We all know which fast food giant created the McMuffin, it’s been around for a long time. But I’m…

Cream Cheese Alfredo

In keeping with the healthy-eating theme from my last post (Chipotle Caesar Salad), here is another lighter version of a classic. I made alfredo pasta, but you won’t find any heavy cream or butter here. You can happily eat a bowl of this alfredo without feeling heavy or weighed down. Scroll down to see the…

Cauliflower Gnocchi

Before I get into this delicious recipe, I wanted to say that this is going to be my last post of the year. I will be taking the next two weeks off from posting, just to spend time with my family and relax at home. But I am always cooking up new things and I…

Tahini Fudge

I am not a big fan of tahini but my mom loves it so she wanted me to make this recipe. So I made it for her but I tried to keep an open mind for myself too. Also, I’m not a big fudge eater, it’s just usually way too sweet and I can only…

Empanada Eggrolls

Get ready for this recipe. This is sort of my own fusion creation and I’m really proud of how they turned out. Let me explain what I’ve made here. So my dad’s family is from Argentina, I mentioned this in my Alfajores post, and empanadas are another common food there. Empanadas are traditionally a turnover…

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…

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…
