I thought so. Let's begin with the dough. The ingredients come together nicely with minimal effort and almost no… Continue reading Two-Ingredient Biscuits
So, I ran into the store to get tomatoes, and I came out with this magazine. It's been quite a while since I bought a magazine on impulse. But dang, those salads looked amazing! And there were 30 of them, each with their own glossy, food porn, full-page photo. It was difficult deciding where to… Continue reading Chatelaine’s 30 Days of Delicious, Dinner-in-a-Bowl Salads
I have a theory that Friday evenings are Universal Pizza Nights. At least that's been the case for me...even when I lived in Beijing. Instead of always ordering pizza (as I once did), Richard and I now include various homemade (or at least home assembled) versions. Some of our favourite pizza ingredients Richard doesn't mind… Continue reading Friday Night Pizza (aka ‘Hello Donna’)
It started with this hot drink that my friend, Deb, served me after a cold and wet hike. Blume's Rose London Fog Latte (à la maison de Widow Badass) Not only was this beverage delicious, it was also caffeine-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, organic, low in calories and high in antioxidant rich vitamins. This power packed cuppa… Continue reading What’s On Your Plate: Blume
Deny it as I may, the Northern Hemisphere has firmly slid into autumn. With that, I've found myself craving casual, carefree, comfort foods that are quick and painless to prepare. These longings don't end at the main course but include desserts (especially ones that are company-impressive, without the drama). Enter 3-Step Mini Cheesecakes. Topped with… Continue reading What’s On Your Plate – October – Mini-Cheesecakes

If you have followed my past few posts, you know that for me, the month of August has focussed on friendship.

Here's a small sample of what this past month looked like under that… Continue reading What’s On Your Plate? The Friendship Edition.

Inspired by Janis's link-up recommending Hello Fresh, I decided to give them a try. I had always been curious about this type of meal service...and a tad skeptical. I had imagined too much package waste, too expensive, too much meat, too many calories and too similar to processed food. When our first box arrived, I… Continue reading What’s On Your Plate: Cantonese Noodles – 4 Ways!
This month’s ‘What’s On Your Plate’ will go live on Wednesday, July 7. Below are a few of my food photos from the last few weeks.
