It’s protein-packed, flavorful + hearty, and paired with taco chips…Mmm! It’s crunchy and munchy. :)
So in honour of Prince Harry’s royal wedding tomorrow, we had to start getting in the spirit with some easy, peasy afternoon tea cookies. Each bite is sweet, buttery, and a brilliant compliment to the gentle bouquet of your favorite tea blend.
This tangy, easy made from scratch quick bread is the perfect Spring mid-week pick me up.
Porch parties are my absolute favorite—great friends + conversation, beautiful weather, crisp wine + of course small plates. One of the easiest, yet still elegant small plates (or “acepipes”) I like to serve is a Portuguese-style, warm marinated olives.
So this week I took matters into my own hands and made some super simple, yet satisfyingly delicious garlic knots from my new favorite find—Wholly Wholesome Gluten-Free Pizza Dough!
To me, poutine (pronounced poo-teen) is the purest Canadian comfort food. Rich, warm brown gravy coating each freshly made, crispy fry, then just for good measure topped with chunks of melty, gooey cheese. It’s the ultimate bowl of savory, messy goodness!
I’m never sure what day it is or where half my clothes are, but I do know one thing—I am constantly craving smoothies!
Breakfast is by far my favorite meal and my favorite genre of food. There’s something so comforting about it. Plus it’s delicious any time of day.
Seriously guys!! This smoothie is the bee’s knees and have selfishly been keeping it to myself, but alas—no more!
Juicing has been an OBSESSION of mine over the last year and I’ve loved experimenting with different combinations of all my favorite and some not-quite-as-much (ahem…kale).
I used to be indifferent to olives, but am so glad my tastes have changed!
Sometimes you are just craving something and you don't have the time or patience to make the recipe the original way. Instead you opt for what in our house we call "the lazy version."
I am constantly snacking. Not good when you have a beach vacation coming up, that’s for sure.
My fiancé isn’t usually a breakfast-person, but he will wake up for these bad boys! They are everything bakery-style muffins should be—fluffy, flavorful, and filling.
When I was younger, one of the best parts of Christmas morning was opening my stocking from Santa because I knew there would be a delicious, creamy and tangy chocolate orange waiting for me!
Make entertaining look (and actually be) easy with this warm, creamy, Christmas-colored cranberry & rosemary-topped goat brie.
If there is one recipe I make over and over, it would definitely be these sugar-coated pecans. Sweet and crunchy, these bites are perfect for countless occasions and always a crowd favorite!
It’s the holiday season! Time for party baking and gift giving, just to add another item to your already long end-of-year list.
In October, pumpkins are king and with pumpkin carving season in full swing, don’t let your raw pumpkin seeds go to waste! Pumpkin seeds may be small, but they pack a big, nutritious punch!
There are definitely a few foods/meals/snacks that I associate with my childhood and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins were and are still a staple in my diet.
Time for a truth bomb: I am a snacker! Seriously a major snacker. Thankfully these yogurt-covered blueberries are super simple, sweet and filling.
Remember earlier this year when we upgraded some store-bought hummus to hearty, delicious mediterranean dip? Well we’re about to do the same but taking it south of the border for a little fiesta!
Elotes, more commonly known as Mexican street corn to us English speakers, is a classic street treat. Juicy corn, charred then slathered in a creamy chili-lime sauce and sprinkled with cheese. If that sentence didn't make you want to try some, then I will have to reevaluate our friendship. :)
I’ve never been a fan of hot and humid weather, betting suits, or the lake days that Summer inevitably brings, but what I do love about this season is all the fresh fruit! Berries, peaches, mangoes, cherries, apricots…I could go on and on. The colors alone are FABULOUS!
Cinnamon Buns are one of my favorite breakfast items! Well it doesn’t have to be breakfast, I will take them anytime of day or night. This shortcut version for mini cinnamon buns is one I used often while at uni.
I made this once for fun, but quickly realized how delicious it was and now it’s my go-to for an easy and insanely good sweet treat. Something a little different but with the comfort of apples, cinnamon, and sweet batter. But in a upside-down sort of way.
A shrimp boil is the perfect dish to serve on the 4th as it’s the ultimate one-pot, or in this case one pan, meal. An iconic Southern feast!
I love cornbread. I love making cornbread. I love eating cornbread. Cornbread, cornbread, cornbread. Good ole Southern cornbread is simple and easy to make, tasty with a touch of sweet, and golden brown, crunchy skillet edges. What’s not to love?
There was nothing more exciting than getting to stop for breakfast bagels on the way to school. When you’re a lazy teenager having food magically appear is the perfect start to any day.
It’s a fact of life that dads love beer and what pairs better with beer than a fresh soft pretzel. Truth is, not much! I find myself craving them at fairs, sporting events, and malls, especially since I can’t have them. It makes me want them that much more!
