This is one of the hardest posts I’ve had to write. Yeah, yeah I know it sounds dramatic but to me it really is.
 
If you know me at all you know my obsession with cookbooks. I read them like novels. I love to get inspired by the recipes, learn a new trick or two, and most importantly read the stories behind the food. So you can imagine me trying to pick my top ten is my version of...

Fall Pantry Capsule

Sep 13, 2019

Can you feel fall in the air yet? Cozy sweaters, slippers, a warm drink and something cooking low and slow on in the kitchen. Fall is always that time to retreat and hermit a little. Well for me anyways.

I love lazy Sundays reading, listening to the rain outside and cooking a good stew or braised short ribs, or roast chicken.....or......my list could go on but I won't ;)

It's cooler...

Prawn Ceviche

Jul 19, 2019

Whenever I travel somewhere I’m always inspired to recreate a specific dish at home. My brother lived in Costa Rica for a period of time and when we would visit the first stop would be to hit the beach (of course). There was a sweet man who would sell ceviche in a little cup for nothing and it came to be one of my favourite parts of the day because not only was the food amazing but it was...

Citrus Olive Oil Cake

Jun 14, 2019

Citrus Olive Oil Cake to celebrate Tuesday! Because, why not??

I shared in my stories when I was testing this that baking is definitely more of a science than cooking so it’s where you need to be a little more precise but that doesn’t mean it has to be hard. A few simple ingredients and you’ve got something special in no time.

A little pro tip, rather than one large baking...

But seriously, I talked about this before and I’m telling you if you make one dessert make this! It only takes a few ingredients and the whole point is it looks imperfect. I promise you’ll impress your family and friends when you make this one….and might I say the perfect Easter dessert. Top it...

Guinness & Mushroom Stew With Herbed Soda Bread Dumplings

Mar 17, 2019

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Rather than drinking green beer to celebrate let's eat some good food!

This recipe is easy to make for Sunday dinner and it's a perfect example where you can have the plants shine and use the meat as an enhancement. The star in this dish is definitely the mushrooms. I use an assortment of what I picked up at the Farmers Market and it's worth it to get a mix so you...

Your Spring Pantry Capsule

Mar 15, 2019

Spring is here! Well almost anyways. I’m so excited to hear the birds chirping in the mornings, longer days and don’t even get me started on all the fresh produce that’s coming to the Farmer’s Market. And because the change of season is always a good time to de clutter and reset in the kitchen I thought it’d be fun to talk about pantry staples for Spring. If...

Macaroni & Cheese My Way

Feb 21, 2019

It's been a Mac & Cheese kind of month. Lots of snow and chilly temperatures means something warm and comforting 

You know my philosophy - homemade always tastes better than the boxed version (plus it’s instantly better for you) and it really doesn’t take any longer, I promise!

The best part is you can adjust it to your own taste. A few easy tricks I use to make the most...
