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,…

Pasta Piselli

It’s Monday, who’s ready for this week?! I feel like some Mondays (but really any day), I just have no energy to make an “exciting” or “interesting” dish for dinner. But since doing this cookbook challenge, I no longer have to worry about what to make. I can just flip through the book and pick…

Creamsicles

Is there a better summer treat than a popsicle? I don’t think so. Sure you can go out and buy a pack from the store, but they are pretty easy to make yourself too. In addition to simplicity, they are also very customizable. You can make a popsicle out of almost anything. Basically if it…

Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is one of those things that I’ve thought about making for a little while. I always add chia seeds to my overnight oatmeal so I figured it was time to make some pudding. If you’ve ever had tapioca pudding, this is quite similar. The recipe I used is from Feel Good Foodie (link…

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…

Japchae

I’ve eaten japchae a couple times so I was excited to make it myself. This is a delicious Korean noodle and vegetable dish, similar to a stir fry. I think what distinguishes japchae is that it is made with glass noodles (made of sweet potato or mung bean starch), which give a great chewy texture….

Taco Salad Bowls

Is there anything more summery than a super colourful and fresh salad? Today’s recipe is from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. You know I love Mexican food so having all the flavours of a delicious taco in the form of a salad is a perfect way to go! This was one of the most colourful salads…

Pot of Collards

Have you ever eaten collard greens? Before this, I had not. I always like cooking with new ingredients, as long as I know what to do with them. I do like my greens like kale and spinach but I’ve just never tackled collards. I’ve watched cooking shows where they make collards, and it usually contains…
