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!
Kale Caesar Salad
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
Broccoli, Cheddar & Goat Cheese Quiche
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
Kale, Feta & Quinoa Salad
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
Olive Garden Breadsticks Copycat Recipe
I’m a ‘carbivore’ (yes I made that word up), I love carbs and will eat them any way possible. So when I found this recipe that claimed to be as good as the restaurant version, I had to try it – and I’m glad I did! Bread can be tricky to make, but this recipe creates a fluffy and versatile breadstick that is definitely worth your time. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
Bananas are great, but I can never seem to finish a bunch. I always end up having a few that are too brown to eat, but yet they’re perfect for baking – what a shame! I call these BOD muffins because their standout ingredients are: bananas, oats, and dates. The recipe produces light and fluffy muffins with a great texture from the oats, and the sour cream makes it not too sweet but works perfectly with the dates and bananas. Hope you enjoy!

Ricotta Gnocchi with Greens and Cream
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!
Chewy Chocolate Macaroons
I love chocolate and I love coconut, put them together and I am very happy. This recipe is not only simple and delicious, it is dairy and gluten free, so it’s a crowd pleaser for everyone. Hope you enjoy!
