Lemon Bars

I was craving something lemony and sweet, and decided it was time I threw together some lemon bars. This is a super simple recipe that anyone can make, so give it a try! Not pictured here is the rest of the pan I fumbled with and broke into a million pieces, which is now a very delightful…

Best Granola Bars EVER

This took some serious testing but I’ve finally got a great recipe for perfectly chewy and customizeable granola bars! Adapted from this recipe that I really wanted to love but they were a little too hard and kind of uncomfortable to eat. You can absolutely make this your own, feel free to swap out ANY of…

Spicy Maple Korean Fried Chicken Pancakes – Pancake Day

It’s Pancake Day! Apparently Canadians are supposed to celebrate this as well but I’ve never <_< I make and eat pancakes pretty often so I wanted to do something different. Since chicken and waffles are a thing, as are chicken and pancakes. I thought I could bring my own twist to this 😀 Fluffy pancakes…

Eggs in a Pizza Basket

We don’t need a recipe for this. You just need to see this and know it exists. Those of you that follow my instagram know that I have a thing for eggs. Straight up #yolkporn. If I can put an egg on it, I will. Two, even. This was just one of those cases 😀…

Almond Biscotti

I’m not a fan of overly sweet cookies or dessert, so these were perfect. Crunchy, subtly sweet, perfect with a tea or coffee! Recipe adapted from: Nonna’s Biscotti Ingredients: 1 cup sugar 1 stick unsalted butter, melted 3 tablespoons brandy (didn’t have brandy, used scotch, couldn’t tell) 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1 cup whole…

Sesame Miso Soba with Crispy Tofu

  Let’s pretend summer is here already so we can eat all of the cool, refreshing and light foods, okay? OKAY?! I’ve also been making a lot of unintentional vegetarian meals lately, not sure why, not unhappy about it though. As long as it’s delicious, no complaints! Feel free to sub out any of the…

Mom’s Pierogi

Perogie? Perogi? Pierogi? I still have no idea how to actually spell it but it’s been an important part of our family for years. You cannot have a family dinner or visit anyone without them being there. Everyone loves them, and they’re gone in an instant. As with every passed down family recipe, I have…

Holla for Challah

Braided loaves can be daunting, but they’re really not that difficult and absolutely worth the effort (and the french toast afterward <_<). I’m a messy, impatient, lazy cook. But in order to make great bread, all you have to do is follow the directions. If I can somehow manage, so can you! What You Need:…

Matcha Blondies (greenies?) 

We recently got a bag of matcha to play around with and I’ve been having a lot of fun trying random experiments with it. I’ve got a few other ideas in the works, but this recipe went well so we’ll start with that! What you need:   1/2 cup of butter, melted 1 cup white…

Gyoza

As you may have figured, I love Asian food. Any of it it. All of it. Dumplings are a staple, easy to make and so fucking good. I love making gyoza because they’re pretty quick to throw together, but you can also use the meat for a bunch of different things if you get fed…

Sushi Bowls! 

This is one of my fave easy dinners to make when I’m feeling like sushi but don’t want to fuck around with nori and rolling mats. It’s also great for using up miscellaneous bits of leftovers or veggies on their last legs the fridge. What you need: Sushi rice Some form of protein (or nah,…
