By Friday, October 3, 2014

Man oh man it has been a busy week! I am so excited it's Friday and the work week is almost over. Tonight, something unusual is happening - My Other Half is cooking! He's making his famous spaghetti sauce with ground beef and we're having spaghetti and garlic bread! We've both been having some weird food cravings ...

Stuffed Breakfast Pastry Shells

By Friday, April 11, 2014

Before you laugh, you need to know - my dad named this recipe "Breakfast Surprise"!   Also, yes - I made you breakfast!   My Other Half is the true breakfast master. Well actually, his dad is, but he learned from the best. On the weekends, when we actually make a real breakfast (not a smoothie or bowl of ...

Roasted Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Alfredo

By Friday, February 28, 2014

This is the kind of food I make when My Other Half is out of town. I'm serious! I've already mentioned that he's on a serious health kick. Pasta, unfortunately for this noodle-lover, is therefore out of the question. But when Roomie (yes, Roomie!) came for supper recently, I seized the opportunity and made something NOT ...

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 ...

Seafood Basil Pasta

By Thursday, August 8, 2013

I probably could call this post "what to do with leftover small amounts of uncooked seafood", but that doesn't sound very appetizing, does it? No, I think I'll stick with Seafood Basil Pasta. And this glorious photo. Yum. Before I get to the recipe, I have some great news - I have managed to keep my basil ...

Pecan & Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I have made many chocolate chip cookie recipes in my day. There's a handful of them on the blog, like these: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Mama's Chocolate Chip Cookies Toffee Chocolate Chip Toonies Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies While the oatmeal ones are my go-to (they're easily and quick), the recipe I'm debuting today gives them a run for their money. My ...

What To Do With Leftover Mashed Potatoes

By Friday, April 12, 2013

Some of you might have caught this picture on Instagram a few weeks back: Yes, I was teaching myself to make gnocchi for the first time! I decided to try it out because I had an obscene amount of potatoes to get rid of. I know what you're thinking - I'm hoarding again. But you're wrong! ...

Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts

By Friday, January 13, 2012

Because we went to New York to celebrate My Other Half's birthday, when his actual birthday rolled around on the following Monday, I didn't have a whole lot planned. The celebration was the trip, but I figured I would make him a nice supper with some drinks and the birthday cake he requested - mint ...

The Perfect Roasted Rack of Lamb

By Monday, August 30, 2010

I wasn’t going to blog about this (because I didn’t actually cook anything myself), but My Other Half pointed out that I never said this blog was strictly about ME cooking. It’s just about ME and FOOD. So here we go: the first post about me NOT cooking. One of my favourite movies is How to ...
