Crispy Spaghetti Pie

We all know that one of my favourite things is a big bowl of pasta, but this was something new. This is the Crispy Spaghetti Pie from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. This was a wedge of pasta. This was baked in a springform pan and gets served in slices. I bet you’ve probably never tried…

Sweet Potato Soup

With the recent hit of super cold weather, what’s better than a hot bowl of soup! Honestly any kind of soup is good but I really like thick and creamy soups – those just hit a different spot. The star of today’s soup is the humble sweet potato. This is one of my favourite ingredients…

Creamy Goat Cheese Pasta

You know I love pasta, it’s such a great meal for any day of the week and you can go in so many different directions with it. Today’s pasta is super creamy made with goat cheese which is such a delicious ingredient. I love traditional cream sauces like an alfredo but making a roux can…

Chocolate Bark

I think I’m in a chocolate mood. It’s funny, I don’t even have such a sweet tooth, but recently, I’ve been indulging a little more than usual. Nothing wrong with that though, as long as you don’t go overboard with anything, everything is good in moderation! If you missed my last post – PB &…

PB & B Bites

Tomorrow (December 16) is Chocolate Covered Anything Day. I’m celebrating with a super simple and healthy snack! These are cute little peanut butter and banana sandwiches that are dipped in chocolate. You can dip the whole thing in chocolate but I liked the look of having it half/half. I don’t even know if I can…

Polenta Puttanesca

When it’s cold out, all you want is a nice comforting meal that will fill you up. This was definitely one of those meals. The base is a creamy polenta with a delicious tomato sauce on top. This is another recipe from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. Starting with the polenta, since the recipe is in…

Chocolate Overnight Oats

If you’ve been here a while, you may know that I eat a lot of oats. I make myself oatmeal (most of the time overnight oats, like this) once a week. It’s such a great breakfast because it takes minutes to prepare and you can flavour it however you like! Today, I added a little…
