One Pot Shrimp & Tomato Pasta

By Friday, March 4, 2016

FriYAY!!! I'm celebrating the end of the week with my favourite thing - pasta! As most readers know, Sundays are my big cooking day each week. I typically make 2-3 recipes, photograph them for the blog, and then package them up in individual portions for easy lunches that work week. For whatever reason, I hate preparing lunches ...

Spinach & Ricotta Lasagna Rolls

By Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Psst - thanks a million for all the love on yesterday's post and video. You guys are the best! It's HUMP DAY! And I am loving meat-free dishes lately! When My Other Half is away, I rarely eat meat at home. I just can't be bothered, unless it's a taco salad or a fillet of salmon done ...

Cheesy Pumpkin Pasta Bake

By Wednesday, October 28, 2015

Ahhhh October is almost over!!! I really cannot believe it. Yesterday was my birthday, and it really snuck up on me this year! I cannot believe that one year ago, I was having the time of my life with 18 of my best girlfriends at my bachelorette party. What a memory! And seriously, time is passing way ...

Bacon & Asparagus Pasta

By Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Remember back when I blogged about my hoarding problem? Well, almost three years later... I have news. I'm not a hoarder anymore! I'm the opposite - a minimalist! It all started when I read Marie Kondo's book. I went through my clothes and chucked tons of stuff. Then I went through my books. And my closets. And anything ...

Bacon, Mushroom & Swiss Chard Linguine

By Wednesday, June 10, 2015

PASTA!!! So My Other Half has been pretty impressive lately. He's cut out beer, bread, pasta and potatoes almost entirely. He feels way better and I'm proud of him, but I am missing pasta SO MUCH. There is nothing more comforting to me than a big bowl of pasta! Also, I have a serious love affair going ...

Mushroom & Parmesan Risotto

By Friday, May 15, 2015

This recipe is a staple in our household! We looove risotto. I think it’s the perfect side to completely many meals where meat is the star. We first discovered this Lemon & Arugula Risotto, which is oh so perfect for summer, and even make it without the arugula sometimes. Then we came across this deliciously mouth-watering ...

Pumpkin Ravioli with Brown Butter & Sage

By Friday, January 30, 2015

Okay so PLEASE don’t let the awful photos deter you! This recipe is AMAZING. Long story short, the sage is missing. I forgot to add it before taking the photos. Colossal failure. Oh and it’s night time, so the picture was bound to suck. Moving on… I recently discovered this thing called crispy sage, and OMG I cannot ...

Tuna & Hot Pepper Casserole

By Thursday, November 13, 2014

This is what you make to bring to the new mom or sick friend. It’s also the ULTIMATE freezer meal. I have an old work friend who has me to her home for lunch every once in a while. She knows, having worked with me for two years, how much I love pasta. The very first time ...

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 ...

Goat Cheese & Avocado Spaghetti Squash

By Sunday, November 2, 2014

The spaghetti squash saga continues! Honestly I haven't been eating it as often as I should be, but I have two baby ones in my fruit bowl ready for this week. I am thinking of my buffalo chicken spaghetti squash and then maybe a goat cheese sauce of some sort... And yes, I keep non-fruit in my ...

Spinach Gnocchi with Brown Butter & Parmesan

By Friday, September 5, 2014

This green gnocchi is the BOMB. I see all kinds of gnocchi out there - sweet potato, whole wheat, ricotta, pumpkin... and I want to make them all. But first... GREEN GNOCCHI. People are always put off by green things and I really don't get it. You should see the looks I get when I bring in ...

Sweet Potato Mac & Cheese

By Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I know what you’re thinking. Stop it with the mac & cheese already, right??? Good news, friends – this is the last mac & cheese post in the queue. For now, anyway… I actually made this one forever ago. And then I froze it. Yup – froze it. I almost never freeze meals. You would think a gal like ...

Classic Baked Mac and Cheese

By Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Back to basics today!!! A couple months ago, I was visiting Laura and we were talking about my blog (and I met her gorgeous baby boy, Cooper). Her husband told me he's a fan of The Domestic Blonde, which always makes me so happy, but that the other day he went looking for a recipe that he was ...

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 ...

Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Sauce

By Friday, June 20, 2014

Gahhhh this sauce.   I thought I was done with carbs, but I guess not. Pasta is just so delicious! And the things you can do with it are endless. It's so fast and comforting and I just want it all the time. I realize I sound like a broken record by this point. But this sauce is truly ...

Spinach & Ricotta-Stuffed Jumbo Shells

By Friday, June 6, 2014

My favourite thing about my half-marathon training? Carb loading.   If you have read this blog for, say, 30 seconds, you know I looove me some pasta. One of the most common comments I get (about my blog) is "how aren't you 300 lbs with all that unhealthy food you make???" My answer: I have no sweet clue. ...

Spaghettini with Spinach, Mozzarella & Anchovies

By Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Ohhh my noodle problem.   The other night, My Other Half said it best. “I’ve never known anyone to love noodles as much as you do.” I thought… me neither! I’m allowing myself to eat noodles, like, 10 times more often than normal, because I’m running so much. Which means I am also making My Other Half eat ...

Arugula Pesto Pasta

By Wednesday, April 23, 2014

And I’m wayyy behind in my blogging again! Seriously, because this photo first appeared on my Instagram on March 23rd. Which is a month ago. And considering I make 2-4 new recipes a week… I am way, way, way behind. For example, these posts are outstanding: Homemade naan (I’m sorry – I promised this recipe a long time ...
