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,…

Pork Bao – First Try!

I love bao, really any type of steamed bun, but the bbq pork type you get at dim sum are my absolute favourite. I grew up in Vancouver where Asian food is cheap and readily available, but life has led me to places where that is no longer the case. So if I can’t get…

Bibimbap

I am ALL about Korean food and gochujang right now, and if you know me well enough, you’ll know that ANYTHING with an egg on it is the best thing that ever happened. So this is how I make my version of bibimbap. What is bibimbap? Basically a bowl of warm white rice topped with miscellaneous…

Spicy Tomato Crumble 

This is one of my absolute favourite recipes, you can eat it as is or serve it with pasta, chicken, fish, really whatever you want to add some amazing flavour. I found it years ago in a lovely little recipe book filled with unique savory dishes. And I haven’t really seen this recipe posted anywhere….

Pantry Panic –  Chicken Mushroom Meatballs

I’m going to start a small series, these may not be recipes you can follow but they may provide some sort of inspiration. This is my first “Pantry Panic” post. I don’t like to waste food, or buy too much, so I often have to throw random meals together with what I can find. Plus…

Herb & Garlic Roast Potatoes

This recipe takes a tiny bit more effort than just throwing potatoes into the oven, but it results in super crisp on the outside, and feather light fluffiness on the inside. It really showcases how simple ingredients can incredibly delicious, and the effort is absolutely worth it. Taters gonna tate. What you need: 2 large…

Half-Baked Pecan Brownies

This is a slightly tweaked version of the basic baker’s brownie recipe. Smaller pan and a touch of salt. If you like a dryer brownie, either cook them longer, or use a 13×9 baking pan. What You Need 4 oz. Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate, chopped. 3/4 cup unsalted butter. 2 cups sugar. 3 eggs. 1 tsp….
