Sweet Potato Fritters

Turning vegetables into crispy pancakes* has been one of my new favourite things recently. I mean, yes it is fried in a little oil, but it’s still healthy right? They aren’t heavily processed and it is just shredded vegetables, so I’m going to say it is definitely more healthy than not. *I will refer to…

Sweet Potato Fries (w/ Spicy Mayo)

Before I get into this post, I wanted to explain why I didn’t post anything last week. I had my posts for the week all drafted and ready to go because I don’t like to do anything last minute. But over the weekend (end of May), with all the protests and violence happening in the…

Potato-Onion Knishes

This post today is about something I have only made a couple times in my life: potato knishes. It’s been 2 years ago since I last made them, you can see that post here. I don’t know why I don’t make them more often, they’re so tasty. A knish is a potato (but can be…

Meat & Veggie Hash

Do you ever have a bunch of random leftovers in your fridge and aren’t sure what to do with them? That’s what happened with me the other day. I had quite a few things remaining from a couple dinners this week: chicken, corned beef, and roasted vegetables – potatoes, asparagus and carrots. I didn’t just…

Recipe #55: Black Bean Tortilla Soup with Sweet Potatoes

I’ve never had tortilla soup but it sounded pretty good just reading through the recipe. It’s a tomato based soup with beans and tons of veggies, as well as yummy toppings, including homemade crispy tortilla strips. I couldn’t wait to make and eat it. It did take a bit of time to chop all the…

Potato Latkes

I love latkes (potato pancakes). Along with sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts), they are a traditional dish to have on chanukah. It’s classic to make them with regular russet/yellow flesh potatoes but I also like using sweet potatoes for something special. They are so easy to make too. The actual mixture is just a few ingredients –…

Recipe #42: Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Stuffing vegetables is such a great meal idea. You can stuff potatoes, peppers, zucchini, tomatoes and onions. So there are lots of choices for the vessel and even more for the filling. You can use ground meat, cheeses, more veggies, grains, rice. You can even mix and match items. If you would like some inspiration,…

Sweet Potato Gnocchi w/ Sauteed Spinach

Mmm gnocchi. When you get it right, gnocchi are such a delicious meal. They are super light, fluffy and delicate little dumplings. They can take a little practice to make, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll love it. Plus, everyone will be so impressed when you say you made them from scratch….

Edinburgh: Baked Potato Shop

Before I get into this post, I just wanted to say I meant to upload this while I was away but between bad internet and just being busy enjoying my vacation, I didn’t have a chance (sorry). But I’m doing it now, and I’ll be making 2 more similar travel posts shortly after this one,…
