Fried Buffalo Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Dressing

By Wednesday, November 18, 2015

This is the best recipe I've made in a long, long time! Let me tell you a little story... Recently, I started working with Ricardo, who you might know from his Food Network show or magazine. I was asked to make and review one of his chicken recipes from his website, and I was super excited because I got to choose ...

Mexican Macaroni Salad

By Friday, November 13, 2015

I realize barbecue season is over... but YUM! My Other Half and I recently had a mini-vacation in the southern U.S., where barbecues are everywhere. All I wanted was macaroni and cheese (I LOVE PASTA) and when we finally went to get barbecue, they didn't have any. At a barbecue joint. What the what?! Unfair and cruel. Macaroni ...

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Wednesday, November 11, 2015

Before today's post, I'd like to take a moment to mention Remembrance Day and all the veterans who sacrificed so we can live as we do today - especially my Poppy. Lest we forget. Would you like a COOKIE? I have this problem with chocolate chip cookies. You know how I don't really like chocolate, and desserts ...

Pumpkin Pie Squares

By Friday, November 6, 2015

Pumpkin EVERYTHING! I was seriously perturbed and surprised when I saw that Starbucks released its red cups this week. Like... already?! I also have a personal pet peeve when it comes to Christmas stuff before Remembrance Day... but that's probably because Remembrance Day is particularly special to our family. Right now I am still 100% in pumpkin ...

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 ...

Autumn Apple Galette

By Friday, October 30, 2015

Once upon a time, I woke up and decided to make an autumn Apple Galette! Seriously, it's that simple. Although I'm not a dessert person, I LOVE galettes. Especially berry ones, like this one from two summers ago. Or this Butternut Squash Galette with Brown Butter and Crispy Sage. Sooo good. And also perfect for fall! I just ...

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 ...

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

By Friday, October 23, 2015

I am so excited today! About this pizza, but also because... Today I am going to Montreal for the Food Bloggers of Canada Conference!!! In its third year, I've always wanted to go, but the last two were in Vancouver and unfortunately that was just too far for me. But Montreal is just a short drive away, ...

Whole Wheat Blueberry Yogurt Pancakes

By Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Lately I've been going ALL OUT with breakfast! My Other Half is definitely the breakfast maker in our little family, which he inherited from his dad, but I'm the pancake maker (he normally does bacon and eggs and things). Since we stopped buying pancake mix a long time ago (in our effort to cut out processed, ...

Addiction Bars!

By Friday, October 16, 2015

In my language, Friday means TREAT DAY! Today I'm sharing a recipe that my entire family has been making for YEARS. I grew up eating these! As I've mentioned before, my mother gave me hand-written recipe cards of all the family favourites as part of my wedding shower gift. It was super special, and slowly but surely ...

Easy Soft Pretzels

By Thursday, October 15, 2015

Oktoberfest caused this. One lazy Saturday afternoon, I looked at My Other Half and was like "wanna make soft preztels?!" and he was like "Umm, YES!" And so this happened. These were SO easy. And you know how obsessed I am with using yeast (since I learned it's actually not scary at all and is very simple ...

Healthy Buffalo Chicken Rolls

By Friday, October 2, 2015

I save all my best recipes for Fridays! Fridays are my favourite because I give myself free reign to eat whatever treats I want. Which usually means cheese fondue or charcuterie and wine. Or pasta. Or nachos! Any of the good things. You know how I went through a serious buffalo chicken obsession? Well it's still a ...

Corn Flakes Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Wednesday, September 30, 2015

As if I need another chocolate chip cookie recipe?! You might be wondering WHY I decided to put Corn Flakes in them. And in typical Julia fashion, it's because I had an abundance of Corn Flakes left over from making my Wife Saver Breakfast Casserole recently. And I mean, who actually eats Corn Flakes for breakfast?! ...

Marinated Greek Salad

By Friday, September 25, 2015

Big, chunky GREEK SALAD! We don’t eat enough Greek salad. Every time I plan to make it, I use up all my feta in this salad. Which should come as no surprise since it’s my favourite salad of all time. But anyway. I finally splurged on some super gourmet giant Kalamata olives and just HAD to make ...

Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

By Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Zucchini season!!! Have I missed it? I think it's still in full swing. I keep seeing zucchini recipes everywhere, so hopefully I'm not late to the party. I always remember that zucchini season comes right before squash and pumpkin season... and we're dangerously close to that, my friends! I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ...

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 ...

Brown Butter Banana Bread

By Friday, September 11, 2015

I am so excited to review my fav girl Jessica's cookbook today, Seriously Delish! So yes, the cookbook came out a year ago. And yes, I am just getting around to reviewing it now. BUT it's the one-year anniversary of its release... so this post is still timely, right? I was lucky enough to get a signed, advance ...

Grapefruit Green Smoothie

By Wednesday, September 9, 2015

I'm all about smoothies this week! Last weekend I realized I was just not eating enough fruits and veggies. After a trip to Pure Kitchen for lunch (which I adored - had the layer dip, mystical bowl and champion juice) I vowed to have a smoothie a day all week (and hopefully continue longer than that). The ...

Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

By Thursday, August 27, 2015

My morning routine changes constantly. Well, constantly is probably an exaggeration... but it changes every couple months for sure. I get into a habit, and then something comes and interrupts that habit, and then I'm back at square one. I keep trying to get things done in the morning, but I'm just not the kind of person ...

Fudgey Marshmallow Brownies

By Friday, August 21, 2015

Brownies! I know I go on and on about how I'm not a chocolate fan but lately I've been craving brownies. They're one of the few chocolate desserts I'll eat, and I especially love them warm with ice cream. For a while I'd been looking for an easy, fool-proof brownie recipe. A lot of them have too many ...
