Friends with salad

I know. Not only has it been forever but I come back with a salad? And you’re all thinking…you put shit in a bowl and that’s a recipe? Yes. That’s exactly what a recipe is. It is throwing shit into a bowl and seeing if you like it. We did. INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup of peas…

Homemade Hummus Quinoa Bowl

So I’m a big fan of the quinoa bowl at freshii, but I’m not a big fan of paying 12 dollars for it. This quinoa bowl had a lot of ingredients but it was gooood, the ingredients worked really well together, and if you’re not into making everything from scratch that’s cool too! If you…

THE COMEBACK: DOUBLE DUTCH BABY

It’s been a while, so when suddenly dutch babies were everywhere (even Bob’s Burgers…my fave.) I figured I had to make one. The ingredients are all pretty standard, it’s the way you cook it that makes it good! The most nerve-racking thing about the whole process is that you can’t open the oven to check if…

Parmesan Fries with Garlic Aioli

I don’t care who you are or where you’re from…fries are SO good. Fries with a little extra flavour and a dipping sauce? Winner. So whenever we’re feeling like we need a little side to something (usually for burgers) I love making our own fries, and I especially love sneaking a couple while I’m in…

Sandwich: Green + Eggs + Ham

While winter this year wasn’t particularly bad, it still feels like it’s been long.  And even though I’m sure we’ll get some more snow before it’s actually spring for real, we have had some awesome warm sunny days. After lots and lots of hearty, warm, winter meals it’s time to lighten it up, and this…

The Great Dane

So a while back ungava sent me some gin and I’ve been experimenting with drinks to find my favourite.  Any gin dubbed ‘spirit of Canadian North’ is the gin for me, and it’s super flavourful so it’s a double win. This drink is THE BEST drink for brunch.  It’s a small twist on a Greyhound,…

Too Corny? Polenta + Rainbow Chard + Shrimp +Bacon

You know when you’ve had something somewhere and it was really good, but you’ve never made it so you feel a little scared?  This is how I felt about polenta UNTIL this weekend happened and I realized how easy it was. Polenta is an AMAZING gluten free alternative for pasta or for rice, it’s an…

Quick Chicken Noodle Soup

It’s been cold the last few days, minus 30 degrees cold, which makes sense since it’s February in Canada.  We took the pup for a long walk yesterday and when we got home we decided we needed soup, this quick recipe is super easy and ready in about 45 minutes. INGREDIENTS: 3 boneless skinless chicken…

Oatmeal Nutty-Scotch Cookies

Something about oatmeal cookies always makes me think about being warm and cozy, so when I was trying to think of something special to make for my Valentine, this was it! Now I am not a HUGE lover of butterscotch, but the boy is, so we usually have butterscotch chips in the house, they made…
