Classic Apple Crisp

Looking for a classic and always delicious dessert? Apple crisp is the way to go! To me, there are two keys to a great crisp: Large chunks of apples. If you cut your apples too small, they will be overbaked and mushy by the time it comes out of the oven. I like when they…

Pan Fried Cabbage with Mustard Seeds

I feel like cabbage is one of those really underrated vegetables, and it sometimes get a bad reputation. It’s super good for you – raw or cooked – and you can put so many different flavours on it. Today’s recipe is one from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. This was a really simple cabbage side that…

Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice

Happy Friday! I’m back with my second cauliflower rice recipe. If you missed my first one, earlier this week, I made Mexican cauliflower rice – definitely check it out!

Smashed Potatoes

Potatoes. One of the most versatile vegetables. I have used potatoes in countless ways before, but this is one I have never tried.

Borracho Squash & Bean Burritos

I love burritos so I was very excited to make this one. This was the Borracho Squash and Bean Burrito from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. Can we talk about the name for a second. I had to look this up but the word ‘borracho’ actually means drunk, typically used to refer to a person. But…

Happy Friday! I am fully embracing the fall and hitting you with another fall recipe. This is pasta with a creamy pumpkin marinara sauce. I found this recipe on Cookie & Kate website (link here).

Well it’s officially fall! That means it’s pumpkin spice time! Now you may be thinking, “isn’t that more of a dessert and coffee thing?”, and you are right.. usually. But putting a little pumpkin spice on some vegetables before roasting is so incredible. Trust me. My go-to seasoning for roasted veggies is typically just olive…
