Cooking a whole fish is pretty easy.  If you told me 5 years ago I would regularly cook whole fish I would think you were crazy.  It seems so intimidating to buy and then cook – how to even cook it?  Well this next post will give you an easy way to cook a wholeRead more

Clean out your fridge Stir-Fry with Crispy Noodles

As my fridge starts clearing out and it is probably a day past when I should have gone grocery shopping I start getting creative how to use up the bits of food which remain.  I hate throwing food away.  This particular day I made use of the bits left in my produce drawer: half an onion, part ofRead more

Crave worthy roasted crab

Sadly, this next post I only have one photo.  I make and come up with a lot of recipes during the course of the week.  Many of which even though they are good I only make one time.  It is the great recipes which I choose to blog about and make again.  I was expecting this next recipeRead more

Love in a bowl <3

One of the things I loved growing up was the nights we would have breakfast for dinner.  It was always nights my dad had a meeting or something keeping him from being home for dinner.  I don’t think he enjoyed breakfast for dinner as much as the rest of the family.  One of the things I love asRead more

Indian Spiced Potato Cakes

I love potatoes.  I could eat potatoes for every meal.  There are so many things you can do with them. I would start listing idas off but I think it would start to sound like Bubba from Forest Gump.  When I opened up my next cookbook on my shelf I was excited to see I’d beRead more

Duck Confit – Easier than you would think!

Confit means to cook meat in it’s own fat.  The meat is seasoned and then cooked in fat at a low temperature.  Then it can be preserved in that fat for a long period of time.  Confiting is very easy to do, it takes very little hands on time and produces a very delicious cookedRead more

Crispy Chicken Wings with Caramel Sauce

The Superbowl is coming this weekend, no I don’t watch sports, yes I had to Google to see when the Superbowl was, but I do enjoy a really great chicken wing.  So I thought it was the perfect time to share this recipe which goes way beyond the expected chicken wing.

Gremolata Stuffed Pork Chop

I am recently re-discovering pork chops.  I never really cared for them growing up.  But now as an adult I am finding them tastier than I remember them ever being.  So I decided to try out stuffing a pork chop with gremolata – a parsley and lemon condiment.  The results were VERY tasty!

Bacon Kimchi Fried Rice

A while back I made kimchi.  I had been thinking of ways to include the kimchi – a staple in Korean cuisine – made from fermented vegetables, typically mostly napa cabbage. A new cookbook I bought was able to help me find a way to use that kimchi in a delicious way!

Quinoa Bowl

I feel like I am a bit late getting on the quinoa train.  I never really had much exposure to eating it and until recently I have never really cooked it.  But now that I have “discovered” quinoa I see a wide range of possibilities to incorporate it into my cooking.

Roasted Vegetable Soup

Winter is the worst.  Right around now every year (mid-January) the frigid weather starts to feel like it’s dragging on and on.  Cabin fever starts to set in.  It gets dark out so early that leaving the house past 6 is a struggle.  Warm comforting foods are all I want to eat.  This next recipe,Read more

Break up Winter

When the weather starts to get colder I typically find I want to eat warming comfort foods.  But as winter drags on and on I am tired of those foods and want to break it up with something bright and fresh.  I decided to throw together a simple yet satisfying ceviche to break up theRead more

Grilled Zucchini and Salmon with Kale Pesto

As the weather is turning colder I find myself wanting to use my grill a few more times before it requires putting on boots and a coat to do some grilling. I picked up some salmon, which happened to be on sale and put together a delicious dinner!

Tasty easy weeknight pasta

One of the dishes my mom made pretty regularly growing up was a copy cat recipe for Olive Garden’s Capellini Pomodoro, a pasta dish with a sauce consisting of olive oil, garlic, diced tomatoes and basil. It was a great summer pasta dish, not to heavy with a nice light flavour. Since yesterday turned outRead more
