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…

Easy Baked Salmon

This is a quick and versatile baked salmon recipe that you can take to work for lunch, or save for dinner. I’ve been buying boxed brown rice from President’s Choice that’s already half cooked, which really reduces the amount of time spent in the kitchen. I’ve accounted for this reduction in time in my guidelines…
