Strawberry & Goat Cheese Spring Salad

I want to start out by saying that this salad is delicious! Not to mention it’s super easy to make (it takes all of 10 minutes), and is a perfect accompaniment to any main. Or, if you’re like me and need a no-hassle snack, this is your go to. The combination of sweetness from the strawberries…

Fried Eggs & Sweet Potato Hash Browns

I’m all about quick and simple breakfasts that don’t skimp out on flavour. This one fits the bill because I prepare the sweet potato hash browns the night before. Having them in the fridge ready to go when needed is a godsend, especially when you only have so much time in the morning.   For…

Red Thai Beef Curry

  This is probably the easiest curry i’ve ever made, and it really packs a punch. If you don’t already have a slow cooker, I recommend that you invest in one because it will easily become a staple in your busy life. Don’t be alarmed by the long cooking time for this bad boy. The…

Fiery Fish Tacos

I was fiending for fish tacos a few weeks ago, so I looked for a recipe I could use as a base to create my own. I followed this one but adjusted according to my own flavour preferences. I recommend making these with at least one other person, to divide up the labour as there are a…

Chorizo & Goat Cheese Crostinis

I catered the New Years party I was at a few weeks ago. It completely escaped me to take photos of all the appetizers I was making, but luckily a friend caught a couple snaps of these chorizo & goat cheese crostinis. These are really easy to make, and are sure to be a fan…

Huevos Rancheros Made Easy

A friend found this recipe and we decided to make it for brunch one day, with some key additions. This recipe is delicious and absolutely no hassle to make – all you need aside from the ingredients is one frying pan and 15 minutes of your time (unless you make your own salsa, which I…

Tomato Basil Soup

My roommate just got her wisdom teeth out and there isn’t much she can eat right now, so a friend and I decided to make her some homemade tomato basil soup. It’s much healthier than any canned variety you would find at the grocery store – a lot less sodium and much more wholesome, fresh…

Thai Inspired Shrimp & Noodles

I have been craving noodles for some time, and I had this vision in my head of a sweet, spicy and gingery Asian dish. I like to play around with my flavours a lot through taste-testing, so sometimes it’s hard for me to quantify my measurements but I managed to pull through on this one. This recipe  turned out to…

Sweet Potato & Pomegranate Winter Salad

A couple of my girlfriends and I get together a few times a month to make dinner, and we most recently made this salad found from Love and Lemons. I’m not the biggest salad person because oftentimes when I eat one i’m left itching for something more, but I have to admit that I fell in love…

Not So Traditional Shepherd’s Pie

The title basically says it all. This was my first time making Shepherd’s pie, and i’ll definitely be making it again. I will warn you that this recipe is a bit labour intensive compared to what I usually post, however the time spent will really pay off as you’ll have leftovers for days (unless you’re sharing,…

Moroccan Inspired Chickpea Soup

Hayley and I decided to try going meatless on Mondays, and with the weather getting much colder it was a good a time as any to make some hearty, flavourful soup. I must admit that the photos I took this time around aren’t the greatest as I was feeling under the weather when making this….

Om-Nom-Nomlettes

I make omelettes on a weekly basis. They’re a great vessel for getting a couple servings of vegetables into your body first thing in the morning. Anddd they’re om-nom-nom good! Prep time: ~ 5 minutes Cook time: 6-8 minutes Total time: < 15 minutes Ingredients 2 eggs, whisked with your desired seasonings – I usually add paprika, salt…
