Coleslaw goes hand-in-hand with barbecues, so this is the perfect time of year to share this recipe – especially with this being a long weekend! This coleslaw is tangy and creamy, and the longer you let it sit, the better it gets. Hope you enjoy!
I don’t often post salads, so when I do you know it’s good! I got a sneak peak of some recipes of dishes that will be at Taste of Toronto this week, and this one stood out. I tweaked it just a bit to better suit the home cook. It is a great, garlicky Caesar salad with a twist that will make you want seconds. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I’m a baker first and a cook second. I grew up with flour and butter, and will always feel more comfortable working with them than meat and vegetables. The great thing about a quiche is that satisfies my inner baker while helping my inner cook make dinner! It does take time, since you need to make the crust, but it’s definitely worth it. Scroll down for more pictures, hope you enjoy! Continue reading
Spring has sprung and so had salad season! Well, not that salad has a season, but I find that when Spring comes I’m just more excited about vegetables and salads (as excited as I can be about them, salads have nothing on cookies). This is a great salad, it’s got the right combination of flavours and textures, and makes very tasty leftovers. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I love gnocchi, it’s my favourite pasta. Years ago, I ate my way through Italy and had to have gnocchi every single day; if I didn’t have it at lunch, I had to have it for dinner. There was a bit of a disaster a few years ago when I tried to make gnocchi from scratch, but when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try again. The gnocchi and the sauce are delicious, but I also use this recipe just for the gnocchi and switch up the saucy component. Hope you enjoy!
As I’ve said before, I’m not great with vegetables, so I’m always trying new dishes in hopes that that way will make me want more of that vegetable. I discovered fried cauliflower with tahina and loved it, so when I found this recipe for a baked version I was really excited. It’s super simple but really delicious, hope you enjoy!
I saw this table online and had to share it, two of my favourite things! Wine and cheese are so good together it sometimes seems like they were made for each other. This guide is a great help for all seasons, tastes, and preferences, hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I love Middle Eastern food! Give me falafel, shawarma, hummus, anything, and I’m a very happy camper. While lots of the side dishes can be made at home, many of my favourites require frying or special equipment, so I was very excited when I came across this recipe. I kept it simple and put hummus, cucumbers, and tomatoes in a multigrain pita with the shawarma, but you can throw in anything. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I’m always looking for new recipes and trying to find different ways of getting enough protein and vegetables, so I decided to find a good (and easy!) tofu stir fry recipe. This one is simple and basic, great to serve over rice, and a good one to start off with if you’re not familiar with cooking tofu (like me). Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I’ve been working on My Nana’s Kitchen for just over a year and a half now, and there are a lot of lessons I’ve learned from it. These lessons come up in conversation enough that I realized that you might want to know about them too, so here they are: Continue reading
