Buffalo Cauliflower Poppers

By Thursday, November 27, 2014

I've got a snack for you! It's been far to long since I blogged about something buffalo-flavoured, right? Personally, I don't think you can ever get enough buffalo ANYTHING. But you knew that already. Sometimes I just crave the flavour and cannot get it out of my mind. Like I keep going to the pantry and fridge and ...

Jalapeño Popper Fries

By Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Do you remember when I made these Buffalo Chicken Fries? My life changed that day. They are still my most favouritest football food. I make them without the chicken all the time. And extra blue cheese because I get down like that. My second favourite football food? Jalapeño Popper Dip. So naturally I had this brilliant idea ...

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 ...

The Easiest Buffalo Chicken Fingers

By Thursday, October 30, 2014

I’ve finding all kinds of tricky ways to make my favourite foods healthy! And now that I’ve made them, I’m wondering… why would anyone ever buy breaded chicken fingers when you can make them so easily at home? I have no idea. It seriously takes an extra 90 seconds. And as I’ve said before, ever since ...

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 ...

Chicken, Avocado & Tomato Quesadillas

By Thursday, October 23, 2014

Dinner for one! Basically. So as I've mentioned, My Other Half's job requires him to travel a lot. Way more than he used to. So most weeknights I am cooking for one. Part of the joy I get from cooking is feeding and pleasing others, so I generally keep things pretty simple when it's just for me. ...

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 ...

95 Recipes for Football Season!

By Thursday, September 4, 2014

Updated for Super Bowl XLIX (January 2015)!  Last year I shared my best 40 recipes for football season and you guys LOVED it! Well, today the NFL starts (at least I think it does…) and my big bad list is back and better than ever. As I’ve said before, I don’t get football… but I am totally on ...

Slow Cooker Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Avocado Crema

By Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Our new favourite weeknight dinner!!! Okay okay, I realize I get excited about all food, so this is kinda like "the boy who cried wolf", but this recipe is actually knock-your-socks-off amazing. I’ve told everyone I know about it. Four times. It tastes like it involves hours of labour and a bajillion ingredients but it’s shockingly so ...

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 ...

Goat Cheese-Stuffed Mushroom Caps

By Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Meet my new favourite appetizer. I am in L-O-V-E. These are perfection. And don't burst my bubble if you don't like mushrooms. Let's talk about that for a second, actually. So My Other Half and I are heading home to Halifax for vacation in August and we're going to the Lord Nelson (our reception venue) for our ...

Buffalo Turkey Meatballs

By Friday, July 11, 2014

These are like buffalo chicken wings.. without the calories. Or at least that's what I heard. They have GOT to be less than restaurant chicken wings, right??? So the buffalo chicken obsession is back in full swing. Or it never left/ended. I still want to drink buffalo chicken sauce every bit as much as the day I ...

Grilled Pear, Goat Cheese & Raspberry Salad

By Friday, July 4, 2014

THIS SALAD! Ages ago (like actually three years), some friends had us for dinner and it was unreal. Especially since when we last had them over, we served them raw pork by accident. My Other Half blames me, but he carved the tenderloin so, well... it was totally his fault. Anyway, this salad was one of the ...

Baked Jalapeño Poppers

By Friday, May 2, 2014

I need a LOT more jalapeño and cheese things in my life. I had a proud moment recently at Costco. The huge frozen box of jalapeño poppers was on sale. And I walked. right. by. Yup. I said NO to a sale AND to jalapeño poppers. I am not sure where the self-control came from, but let's hope its ...

The Best Beer-Battered Onion Rings

By Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Pub food is best in pubs, right? Yeah, that's what I thought too. Until I made these bad boys. At the same St. Patrick's Day party where I served my Green Melon & Lychee Martinis, I decided to make Guinness-battered onion rings. I'd never made onion rings before, but I'd made lots of calamari, so I figured ...

Strawberry, Feta & Spinach Salad with Candied Almonds

By Friday, March 7, 2014

Good luck getting me to make and eat a salad at home. I need one of three things to do it: Wicked awesome dressing. Some of my favourites include this Greek one, this amazing Japanese one from Costco, or the dressing in this recipe. Cheese, period. Goat cheese is my favourite on salads, but feta turns my crank ...

Baked Chicken Taquitos

By Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Sometimes I make Mexican snacks as supper. Especially when My Other Half isn't around, because, well... most Mexican food it's up to his healthy standards. But there are vegetables in this. So it's okay. Mexican is probably my second favourite type of food on the planet (after Thai, of course), and as I've ...

Killer Pulled Pork

By Friday, February 14, 2014

Happy Valentine's Day lovers!!! <3 Remember way back when I started the Football Sunday Recipe Challenge? I know, it was forever ago. And it's obviously over now. I don’t actually watch football. Well, sometimes I do, but most of the time I’m reading a book for my book club while My Other Half watches it. I don’t fully ...
