Charred Corn Chowder

Alright. Before I get started on today’s post, I want to send out MUCHO love. Not sure if I say it enough, but I’m SO grateful for you all and SO appreciate hearing about your success with my recipes. They’ve brought me health, happiness (who doesn’t love a GOOD kitchen party?!), and have conquered some…

Roasted Bruschetta Orzo

July has welcomed regular thunder showers! Therefore opportune moments to fit in some BBQ time are well treasured. This humidity though – apparently I’m ‘glowing’ and rocking some serious beach hair…in Northern B.C.!? Ok, so I love bruschetta – especially the ‘garlicky slurry’ my dad adds to his recipe. Watch out though, major dragon breath…

Rhubarb Oat Crumble Squares

Gotta love a low maintenance herbaceous perennial! THESE Rhubarb Oat Crumble Squares – BIG fan of their tart and slightly sweet side. Rhubarb is, and continues to be, in FULL bloom in my yard. I love it! It didn’t take much to introduce this crumbly duo…oats, meet freshly stewed rhubarb.

Crispy Curry Potatoes

I can smell the LONG weekend approaching – nope…its these Crispy Curry Potatoes I roasted last night. AND that CilantroCream (drool). Alright, the first thought I had this morning when waking up – I can STILL smell those potatoes. SO fragrant and delicious, this recipe is simple and comes out looking like a million bucks!…

Thai Rice Bowl

Welcoming SUMMER like…! The temps have dropped for June (as usual), and I’ve been craving foods to warm my core. This Thai Rice Bowl is one that I chowed down on just the other day – brown basmati rice topped with tomatoes poached in a creamy/slightly spicy peanut sauce (packing cilantro + jalapeƱo) AND a…

French Toast

As kids, my parents would make us anything we wanted for breakfast (with restrictions) on Sunday mornings. It usually came down to pancakes, waffles, or french toast. Clearly we loved our carbs. There was just something about french toast that always felt ultra special. Fancy, really. SO, seeing as it was a special Sunday yesterday,…

Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’

What a GAME last night! Congrats Toronto & Oakland – both were super entertaining to watch. In spirit of yesterday’s festivities, I’ve decide to post some Buffalo Cauliflower Wings – nom, nom. SO…I finally gave into the Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’ craze! After making the rounds at a few favourite eateries to try this stuff out,…

Glazed Coffee Donuts

Coffee break! Cleary I can’t get enough these days. Just like my coffee, I like my donuts strong!? These glazed gems are lightly sweet, simply baked, and super tender. They’re best when eaten the same day, so all the more reason to share. Want to surprise your crew with a simple (fancy-ish) morning treat?!…try these…

Iced Coffee

Feeling the LOVE today, so I wanted to pay it forward by sharing one of my favourite ways to welcome the warmer weather – Iced Coffee. I know…nothing new, BUT the simple combo of ingredients in this cup has pulled me through the last few (crazy busy & warm) weeks. It’s both thirst quenching and…

Mediterranean Zoodles

Coming at you with this HOT MESS – Mediterranean Zoodles…ok, mixed in with some (rice/quinoa) spaghetti noodles. Have to have some pasta in there! This is one of our go-to pasta dishes for the warmer months. Just look at ALL of those flavours!…AND simply dressed in a mixture of garlic, fresh lemon juice, sea salt,…

Spiced Green Beans

Long days like the ones during this long weekend call for some simple fresh eats. Rather than take off and escape to the lake, I’ve been spending every available moment getting caught up on some much needed yard maintenance. Next, the exterior of my house is receiving a total facelift – oy. To keep spirits…

Daikon Salad w/ Miso Dressing

THIS Daikon Salad is quickly making its way up our ‘favourites’ list. Perfect for summer (first tan lines of the year are here! but only on the back of my neck:(, this refreshing simple salad is one that has been on repeat in my house for the past few weeks. Simply dressed with a mouthwatering…
