Peach Pistachio Caramel Crumble Recipe

I used to LOVE eating canned peaches. The syrupy sweetness, the strange canned mealy texture, the convenience of those little snack cups – they were the perfect treat for my five-year-old self. I can’t remember the last time I ate canned peaches, but I’m thinking I should definitely go ahead and can some for a taste […]

Sunday Stuff 8.10.2014

The past week I spent a lot of time reading, enjoying the sun, and doing one of what I consider a most indulgent past time – watching movie trailers. Mike and I don’t go to the theatres a lot – I prefer cozying up at home and watching in our living room where the snacks are more along […]

What's in my Kitchen: Utensils Edition

I decided to start a buying guide, just because so many people ask me what’s in my kitchen. This series started out life as “The Best (fill-in-the-blank)” but some people are a bit fanatical about the phrase “the best.” Here I’ll just stick to what I have in my kitchen – it’s what works for me.

Fully Loaded Baked Potato Salad Recipe

Potato salad. Definitely the salad I make a beeline to at all picnics, barbecues and potlucks. Often I’m disappointed so, to negate that, I’m usually the one bringing potato salad to the party. This is a super quick, super easy fully loaded baked potato salad. I baked the potatoes to get that earthy flavour, but you can […]

Taiwanese Meat Sauce and Rice Recipe

Do you guys ever miss high school? Let me clarify – I don’t mean the school part of it, or the cliques or classes, I just mean the after school snacks. Man, after school snacks were the bomb. Snacks were, by far, the best part of a weekday. Sometimes my snack situation would be something […]

Buttermilk Waffle Recipe with Bourbon Cherry Sauce

A couple of weeks ago we had houseguests. One of them wanted to head out for Sunday brunch, but I was feeling entirely too lazy to put on real clothes and head out so the only logical thing to do was to stay in and make waffles. Luckily, I had buttermilk, Greek yogurt and fresh cherries […]

Happy August guys! I feel like I say this every month, but I just can’t believe how fast July has flown by. I’m looking forward to those long, lazy days of the end of summer and dare I say it, maybe even the start of fall? Actually, yes, I’ll just go ahead and proclaim my […]

Pulled Pork Fried Rice Recipe

When I have a bunch of leftover meat I tend to make fried rice. I’ve made it with leftover fried chicken, porchetta and yes, even pulled pork. Pulled pork fried rice is definitely a bestovers kind of thing. You can clean out your fridge and make something that is almost even more delicious than its starting point.

Mini Grilled Cheese Cakes Recipe

If you read this blog regularly, you’ll know that I have a slight obsession with grilled cheese sandwiches. I even threw myself a grilled cheese themed birthday party. It was pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. I had a grilling station, different kinds of bread, a bunch of add-ins and, of course, a […]

Raspberry Mint Julep Recipe

Do you guys like to keep your various groups of friends separate or do you let them mingle? Generally, I like to lump all of my friends together at dinners and parties – I figure all my friends like me, so they already have one thing in common. But, just this past weekend, two very dear […]
