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 ...

Chewy Chocolate Peanut Squares

By Friday, August 15, 2014

These are actually the devil. I'm not a dessert person, but peanuts and chocolate? These are practically an Oh Henry bar. That you can make at home. Obviously I did not make these for My Other Half and I to consume ourselves. I made them for book club. I quickly found out they were too decadent to be ...

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 ...

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 ...

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

By Wednesday, October 2, 2013

Snacks! I love snacks. And after almost 9 months, I think I can officially announce I have kicked my chip addiction!!! Not only do I never crave chips any more, I don’t want them even if they’re right in front of me. It took a long time, but I got there! My Other Half and I ...

My Favourite Dips

By Tuesday, January 8, 2013

It’s probably a bad idea to blog about dips, especially since one of my new year’s resolutions is to stop buying chips, but I really can’t resist. While going over my most popular and favourite recipes from 2012, I was reminded of last winter’s “search for the perfect dip”. I looked high and low, tested countless ...

Healthy Energy Bites!

By Thursday, June 14, 2012

Note: This post was updated in January 2014 with new photography! Introducing the most delicious, healthy and addictive discovery of the year…. well, month, I guess. No, they're not meatballs. They're sweet, totally raw, healthy, delicious Energy Bites! I found a similar recipe in the fall on Pinterest. But I didn’t get around to making them until my May ...

Breaking news: The best Jalapeño Popper Dip ever!

By Monday, March 5, 2012

For those of you who are new to my blog, you should know one thing – as a former journalist, I don’t use “breaking news” light-heartedly. I only pull it out for the most incredible, delicious, life-changing recipes. This dip is one of them. I love jalapeño poppers. They are one of my favorite snacks. I have ...

Buffalo Chicken Dip

By Sunday, February 26, 2012

This post was updated in September 2014 with new photography! And so the dip saga continues! As you can probably tell, I am on a bit of a dip kick. I first had this dip at my friend Nicole’s, who is one of the most wonderful hostesses I’ve ever met. Every time she has me over, not ...

Cauliflower Popcorn and Sweet & Salty Chickpeas

By Friday, February 17, 2012

These were a win (but I like to call the recipe “Cauliflower Popcorn” because that’s what it looks like). You can use any combination of spices (and I intend to try all different types), but go easy on the heat if you’re not into spicy things. If I was on The Biggest Loser, I would ...

Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Dip

By Monday, February 6, 2012

Let me start by saying that I am not a football fan, but My Other Half is a die-hard Giants fan, and yes, he was thrilled with the victory last night. I try to be as supportive as possible. Even though I know nothing about the sport, I always take interest in important games. I like ...
