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,…

Blueberry Cheesecake French Toast

I don’t think you’re ready for this one. Blueberry + Cheesecake + French Toast = AMAZING MEAL. Yes you could eat those components separately and be happy, but eating them together makes everything better. And all the parts are very simple so you have no excuse not to make the whole dish! Let’s start with…

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…

Cold Peanut Noodle Salad

I love pasta salad, I’ve posted quite a few on my blog over the years. It’s just such a great dish to make for any occasion really – BBQ, picnic, birthday. Part of why it’s so great is that it can be made ahead of time and can be served cold or at room temperature….

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…

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…

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….
