Spicy Thai Vegetable Soup (For the Soul)

You know how sometimes you see a picture of a dish, and you think to yourself “Man, that looks so tasty!”, without even knowing what’s in it? Well, I had that moment this week. I didn’t even look at what the dish was called at first, I just saw a bowl of soup that was…

Apple Pie German Pancake!

Just in time for Thanksgiving, have I got the best unconventional dessert for you (Or, in our case, breakfast)! Alright, so I’m due this week to have baby arrive in the world, so we decided this thanksgiving not to go far from home in case anything happened. Of course, here we still sit waiting, but…

Sourdough Ciabatta (And some bread theory)

First off, I have to ask forgiveness for the lack of pictures for this post. This was my second attempt at the recipe, and I wasn’t sure it was going to work as I had made a lot of changes to the first round. But, I found myself pleasantly surprised and without pictures of the…

Vegan (or Bust?)

Changing your diet can be a difficult undertaking. We tend to stick with what we know, our favourite flavours and textures that we know how to cook with best.

Super Green Salad with Golden Tahini Dressing

Sometimes I feel like I’ve overdone it. Maybe a week of overindulgence, lack of activity, it doesn’t really matter necessarily. Sometimes, I feel like I’m not my best, and I need to refuel myself properly, without overdoing it. That’s when I start buying greens and vegetables and spices in excess. This time around, I grabbed…

Asian Soba Slaw (Or, A.S.S.)

I could have a field day with the title of this blog. Slightly inappropriate, maybe, but it’s too tempting to ignore completely. And frankly, an ass is a donkey. It’s an anatomical part. It’s NOT the worst swear word out there, and it’s a hilarious acronym for a delicious dish. So, putting aside the ass-talk,…

Pureed Cauliflower Soup (with Spicy Roasted Chickpeas)

I don’t eat a lot of soup. I’m sorry. I know this offends some people. When I told my boss that I had been assigned to make a soup, and that I wasn’t looking forward to it, she freaked out a little bit. She admitted she had even been jealous of my liquid diet when…

Chicken Pot Pie Comfort Dish!

Saturdays are a day of “rest”- meaning I don’t leave the apartment much. Maybe for a run, maybe for a meal out, but otherwise I hole up and do my school work in my pajamas. I also tend to make a lot of food. For instance, last weekend, after a few glasses of wine, I…
