Easy Naan Bread

Although not authentic, we all can’t be expected to have a tandoor blazing in our kitchens at all times, this is the next best thing. There’s one semi-weird thing with this recipe. It uses brown sugar. The original recipe I had iterated on called for honey, which I did not have, so I just did…

Easy Customizable Granola

Just a quick little recipe that you can make your own! I wanted to make my granola bar recipe but I have no brown sugar so I thought a simple, light-er granola would be good. This is mildly sweet, warmly spiced and crunchy! Feel free to sub out any of the nuts/seeds/dried fruit/fat with anything…

The BEST Lentil Meatballs

I’m trying to eat more plant-based food lately. I know I know, ew. But I’d like to live longer and maybe have a slightly less detrimental impact on the environment, so maybe eat a bean sometime. (Legume didn’t work well with the joke) This recipe is shockingly delicious, easy enough, and can be turned into…

Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I don’t remember the last time I actually ate a banana I bought instead of turning in into banana bread. It’s just meant to be. Make sure your bananas are super bruised and black, the longer you wait the sweeter they will be. What you need: 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted 1 cup sugar 2 large…

Leftover Chicken Lentil Taco Soup

I know the obvious answer to “what to do with leftover taco ingredients?” is to make more tacos, but sometimes I like to switch it up. I’m a huge fan of challenging myself by trying to find something entirely different I can make up with whatever ingredients I have on hand. I had made burrito/taco rice…

White Sandwich Bread – Single Loaf

I love baking bread and do it often. I rarely ever have the 5-8 billion cups of flour required for most bread recipes, not to mention different flour types, so here’s a simple recipe to make ONE loaf of bread. Not two, not three, not whateverthehell amount of bread people keep developing recipes for. What…

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…
