General Tso Cauliflower

I don’t have to tell you, but I love battered and baked cauliflower (aka cauliflower wings). I have made them so many times with so many different flavours. I just can’t get enough. My obsession originally began with the buffalo sauce (franks hot sauce + butter/oil) but I have expanded to many other flavour profiles…

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…

Creamy Coleslaw

If you are looking for a break from traditional lettuce salads, coleslaw is a great alternative. I’ve made several coleslaw recipes on my blog, you can make it as simple or complex as you like. The recipe I made today was on the simpler side, funnily enough, from a website called Simply Recipes (link here)….

Corny Corn Muffins

Is there a difference between cornbread and corn muffins? According to the internet, corn muffins are usually sweeter and cornbread more savoury. I’m not that much of a connoisseur on the matter, so they’re pretty much one in the same for me. I usually make cornbread/ muffins as a side for chili or soups, it’s…

Recipe #79: Pineapple Pico de Gallo

Pico de gallo is a fresh salsa, traditionally made with tomatoes. This pico, made with pineapple put a tropical twist on that classic. This was a very summery salsa which almost took my mind off the cold winter outside. Fresh salsa is just leaps better than jarred stuff. If you can, you should always try…

Recipe #12: Thai Style Mango Slaw

I want to start by by saying that I know my picture looks very different from the one in the book for this recipe. I used a couple different ingredients that made big colour changes to the final result but the flavour was pretty much the same. I guess I can just continue on that…

Recipe #5: Tahini Kale Caesar Salad with Whole-Grain Croutons

Caesar salad. It’s the salad that makes you think you’re being healthy when you order it at a restaurant. It’s lettuce slathered with creamy dressing, plus cheese and croutons. There’s nothing really healthy about it. However, THIS caesar salad recipe is a whole different story. This salad has romaine lettuce and kale for tons of…

Simple Bean Salad

It is a new week and a new month! Welcome to July! This week I’m using black beans. I used canned in all my recipes, but you can always use an equal amount of cooked dry beans. For the first recipe of the week, I made a black bean salad. It is similar to the…

Sticky Cauliflower Bites

Hi there! If you’re new here, I just wanted to say welcome 🙂 I’m currently doing a cooking challenge where I post recipes using a certain ingredient each week. I’m in the middle of my cauliflower week, yesterday I made delicious fried rice (link here), and today I made these sticky cauliflower bites. I found…
