Peanut Sesame Veggie Noodles

By Wednesday, November 4, 2015

I call this one of my single girl recipes! Not that I am single (you guys know I am happily married), but since My Other Half travels so often, I'm always trying to come up with easy and quick weeknight dinners that are simple to throw together and don't make more than four portions. Because, well... leftovers ...

Crunchy Thai Chicken Salad

By Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Summer salad season! Say that five times fast. It's now been over a month since My Other Half cut out bread, pasta, potatoes and beer and some days it's a struggle to come up with supper ideas. We pretty much always end up at the same decision - a salad! Like a lot of people, our go-to ...

Asian Udon & Spinach Stir-Fry

By Friday, April 10, 2015

NOODLES! It’s been far too long. You know I am ALL about the super-fast weeknight noodle dish. This one is perfect because udon noodles basically come pre-cooked. So fast! And spinach is a staple in our house for smoothies, and so are green onions (not for smoothies, though) so I always have everything for this recipe. You’ll ...

Quick & Easy Thai Red Curry

By Wednesday, March 4, 2015

Dinner for ONE! My husband travels a lot. Yes yes – you know this already. But it means that being alone and cooking for one has become my specialty! Honestly, when My Other Half is away, I stay very busy. I have all my extra-curriculars, I see friends… typically I am out every work night. Sometimes I ...

10-Minute Peanut Noodles

By Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Finally! I first Instagrammed this recipe two months ago and promised I would blog about it soon. I often test recipes a few times before I properly photograph them and blog about them, though... and that was the case with this recipe. I made it three times before I took the photographs you see here! There are many ...

20-Minute Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps

By Tuesday, November 4, 2014

When did people start saying “nom nom nom” when it comes to yummy food? What does it even mean? Is it the sound you make when chewing? I have no idea, but I say it just because everyone else. It sounds silly and cool enough. It’s always a good idea to blindly and ignorantly follow fads, right? “Nom ...

Curry Shrimp Tacos with Bell Pepper Salsa

By Friday, October 31, 2014

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! How often is Halloween on a Friday or Saturday? Not very often, at least in my recent memory. But then again it was probably last year and I am completely oblivious and have the attention span of an ant (or so My Other Half says). As I’ve mentioned pretty much every year since I began ...

Chicken & Avocado Eggrolls

By Friday, October 24, 2014

I saved the best for last this week! So remember on Tuesday when I told you I was going to share two AMAZING recipes from the past with you? Well here’s the second one, and it’s BAD A$$. I will warn you in advance – you need a food processor with a grating/slicing function or a mandolin ...

Ginger Pork Wontons

By Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Follow my blog with Bloglovin THESE ARE THE BEST. So I am still going through this project where I go back into the archives and dig up all the amazing recipes I blogged about eons ago, and re-photograph them. At least that’s my intention, or what I’m trying to do. Sometimes I fail, like with this recipe. ...

Tangy Thai Cucumber Salad

By Wednesday, October 1, 2014

English cukes. I used to eat them like apples. Seriously! A cold, crispy English cucumber is delicious all on its own. No dressing or dip required. But I reckon if I had people for dinner and served them half a whole cucumber on a plate as their “salad”, I might get a few weird looks. So this ...

Chicken Coconut Rice with Sweet Potato & Bok Choy

By Friday, September 19, 2014

Another one of my favourite recipes! I love love love this recipe. I love one-dish meals, because they’re easier, and because there is less opportunity for me to get distracted than if I’m cooking a main and three sides all at once. Or something like that. My Other Half would say it’s impossible for me to NOT ...

Sweet Bourbon Chicken with Rice

By Wednesday, September 3, 2014

Put bourbon in ANYTHING and I automatically want it. Seriously. I don't care if it's breakfast. I want it all the time. But really, there are perfectly acceptable and desirable ways to have bourbon for breakfast. Like this Bourbon Banana & Walnut French Toast. Or these Bourbon Bacon Pecan Sticky Buns. Or these Pumpkin Bourbon Pancakes. To name a few. And ...

Sesame Sriracha Guacamole

By Friday, August 22, 2014

Guac on steroids!!! Avocados + me = true love. They somehow actually make every single dish better. They’re a staple in our house, always kicking around. I buy the bags of five large ones from Costco. And then we put them on everything – salads, burgers, soups, sandwiches… do you put them in smoothies? My friend Laura ...

Classic Pad Thai

By Wednesday, July 2, 2014

This is probably the 20th Pad Thai recipe I've made. Honestly, I have tried countless versions of this staple Thai dish, and I never really found one version that was as good as my favourite Thai restaurants. Most recently, I made spaghetti squash pad thai, which was unreal. I highly recommend it, especially if you're a recovering ...

Vietnamese Caramel Pork

By Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Food with ALL the colours!   This is a massive step up from what I blogged about on Friday. Looks-wise, at least. I know they say "don't judge a book by it's cover" but I always always do. It's in my nature. I have so many freakin' recipes on Pinterest that it's overwhelming. I'm now divided them into ...

Honey-Sriracha Chicken with Quinoa

By Wednesday, June 4, 2014

I am BEYOND excited to share this recipe with you!!! When I made something amazing, I get so excited to blog about it. I just want to share all the delicious foods of the world with everyone! This is definitely one of those dishes. My Other Half and I went NUTS over it, and it's so easy. And ...

Shrimp, Mango, Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash Curry

By Friday, March 21, 2014

Ol’ faithful. I think Nigella Lawson is a huge reason why I fell in love with cooking in the first place. Yeah, I had my days at the Rose & Kettle Tearoom, but after school in second year university, I would always watch Nigella Express (her TV show). Like most people, I was totally seduced by ...

Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

By Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Pad Thai is my FAVOURITE. I always feel silly ordering just Pad Thai at a restaurant because I should really be trying something new. But it's Old Faithful to me. It never disappoints. But really, I prefer to go for Thai with a group of people so we can share everything. It's only at lunch that ...

Udon Noodles with Spicy Pork & Bok Choy

By Friday, January 24, 2014

Last iPhone food photo on the blog ever? I hope. I hope. But this was taken on a beautiful sunny afternoon, so it's not that bad. And let's be honest, it's not like my Instragram photos will ever stop showing up on the blog. And a lot of them are food. It's not like I can ...
