Thai Slaw with Peanut Dressing

You know I love coleslaws. You can find many recipes on my blog – just search “coleslaw” in the box at the bottom of the page. The coleslaw I made today was from a website called Cooking Classy (link here). It had lots of Asian/Thai flavours so it was right up my alley. I also…

Recipe #35: Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

No bake desserts? Uh yes please! If you want a nice treat in a pinch, you should try these cookies. This no-bake snack reminds me of the trail mix granola bites I made a little while back (recipe #20 here). These types of desserts are just so great to make and keep in the fridge…

New Cookbook Challenge + Recipe #1: West African Peanut Soup

When I finished my first cookbook challenge for the Yum & Yummer book by Greta Podleski (all recipes here), I told myself that I probably wouldn’t cook through another book. It was just a lot of work to organize all the recipes and be on such a consistent schedule of cooking, drafting and posting. It…

Creamy Peanut Curry

As opposed to my other coconut recipes that used coconut meat, this last recipe used the milk. I love coconut milk because it’s a nice dairy free option that adds so much creaminess to whatever you put it in. I also wanted to make something was a complete meal since I’ve been making lots of…

Banana Oat Bars

You know when you have so many bananas and they’re going bad and bruised? That was me yesterday and I didn’t want to just throw them in the freezer. So I looked up recipes. I found the obvious – banana bread and banana muffins – but I wanted something different. Then I found it. Banana…

Peanut Ramen

I’ve made noodles with peanut sauce so many times for one simple reason – it’s delicious. And super easy. Okay, so maybe it’s two reasons. I made this the other night and it looked too good not to post about. I started with making the sauce in a bowl – natural peanut butter mixed with…

Recipe #31: Peanutty Sesame Noodle Bowl

One of my favourite easy meals is instant noodles in a 4 ingredient peanut sauce (peanut butter, soy sauce, sriracha, maple syrup). This recipe was pretty similar but a little more complex and healthier. Maybe the whole wheat linguine made the dish a little less authentic but it still tasted delicious! For one, the addition…

Thai Spiralized Zucchini Salad

I almost forgot that I had a spiralizer cause I haven’t used it in so long. I made a really nice thai dressing to put on my zucchini noodles. It had peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, ground ginger powder, lime juice and sriracha. I added some carrot slices for extra crunch, but also some…

Asian Chicken Meatballs, Roasted Veggies and Salad

I haven’t made a full meal like this in a long time. The main protein was these chicken meatballs which turned out really well. The actual meal mixture was just ground chicken, an egg, panko bread crumbs, grated ginger and sriracha. I made meatballs and baked them for about 15 minutes. After that, I brushed…

Peanut Noodles

Another super easy meal, brought to you by me! This meal was kind of a cross between peanut noodles and a regular stirfry. Just sauteed some onions, carrots and peppers, then add ginger and a few chilis for flavour. Once that’s all blended nicely, add cooked spaghetti (you can use real asian style noodles instead)….
