Smoothie Popsicles

If you ever make too much smoothie, and don’t have anyone to drink it, why not turn it into popsicles! This is a great way to repurpose your drink and turn it into a super refreshing summer treat. The best thing about this is that you do not need any extra ingredients – just need…

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!…

Veggie & Pesto Flatbreads

I got a great weekend recipe for you! These are delicious vegetable & pesto flatbreads. I used whole wheat pitas which were the perfect base for this. These would be good to serve to guests or just to have as a lunch for yourself. Don’t get me wrong, I love super cheesy pizza, but sometimes,…

Sheet-pan Salmon Dinner

Looking for an easy sheet-pan dinner? Here’s a delicious salmon and vegetable meal you can make on any weeknight. I used salmon for this meal but you could use chicken thighs or legs instead. (Note: if using bone in chicken, you will need to increase cooking time. I would suggest cooking the chicken alone on…

Red Cabbage Slaw

My posts last week were all on the sweet side – Pineapple Slush, Banana Snickers, Birthday Cake – so I’m starting this week back on the savoury side! Since it’s Monday, this is another recipe from Thug Kitchen 101. Side note before I get into this post: I have almost made 40 recipes from this…

Banana Snickers

Like some of you out there, I spend part of my days watching videos on TikTok. One of my favourite types of videos on there is the cooking videos (for obvious reasons). I have made some in the past and posted about them – Tortilla Wrap, Peanut Butter Dip & Ramen – and today I…

Pineapple Cucumber Slushie

Who doesn’t love a cold beverage? They are perfect to keep cool in the summer, especially with the recent heat wave that has impacted many areas. This is the Pineapple-Cucumber Slushie from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. I haven’t had a slushie in so long, I used to get them at the gas station when I…

Tortilla Pinwheels

Hope everyone is doing well! This week has been super hot and humid where I live and I know people on the West Coast of Canada/USA have been experiencing crazy heat waves. I hope you’re finding ways to stay cool. In a previous post, I mentioned one strategy to dealing with hot temperatures is by…

Greek Chickpea Salad

Since this summer has been pretty hot and sticky so far, I have been trying to make as many “cooling” recipes as I can. This has been mostly a variety of salads and sandwiches, using many fresh ingredients and bright flavours. Some of the recent cool summer recipes I’ve made include Strawberry Crostini & Fruity…

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…
