I have OFFICIALLY found my favourite way to eat spaghetti squash! I had this idea in the back of my mind for ages, and finally got around to making it. I knew that squash wasn’t going to cook itself, so today was the day.
Pasta – it has to be the ultimate comfort food. It was rather fitting that National Pasta Day fell on a bit of a dreary day, perfect for a warm wool blanket and a bowl of cozy noodles. I’ve always loved a good Carbonara: such simplicity. But also SO many calories. I stumbled upon a recipe on the Bon Appétit … View The Post
Pizzettas (or mini pizzas) are the perfect food for casual entertaining. It is by far our favourite meal to prepare for guests, so laid-back, and who doesn’t like pizza? You can use a prepared store-bought crust if you are pressed for time; there are some great ones out there. I recommend putting out all of the ingredients and let our … View The Post
I’m an 80:20 kind of gal. In fact, I think there are a lot of things in life that this ‘rule’ can apply to; eating is one of them. I’m the first one to take an extra helping of kale, but there are times when I give myself some slack and dig my fork into something slightly more decadent. The … View The Post
Hot weather makes me crave Mexican food. I’ve only been to Mexico once, so I can’t say that there’s any good reason for this association, it just happens. So when summer hits in the Okanagan like a ton of inferno bricks, out comes the BBQ and a truck load of cilantro. I eat cilantro like it is salad, seriously!
I wasn’t sure how my husband, a complete carnivore, would react to me telling him I was making veggie burgers for his birthday barbecue. I mean, I can’t blame him for being a little miffed. After all, it’s HIS birthday, right? So we settled on a compromise with veggie burgers being just one of the options and he was back … View The Post
You know those meals that you cook ALL THE TIME….? Tacos are that meal for us. Now, we’re not talking any regular taco here. We’ve been married for six years now, and seriously, it has taken us that long to perfect this dish (I guess that’s what you can expect when a Hungarian and a Ukrainian set out to ‘master’ … View The Post
There are a million ways to make lasagne, and everybody thinks theirs is the best (of course). Well, I guess I’m as guilty as the next guy! I ADORE Italian flavours. Basil, tomatoes, cheese… I mean, what is there not to love? Pour me a glass of wine, put on some Dean Martin and I’m in heaven! Now, this may not be … View The Post
The older and busier I get, the less time I want to spend in the kitchen slaving away for hours while everyone else relaxes and visits. Call me cranky, but I just want to have a good time! I’ve always marvelled at steamed mussels (when done right), but am embarrassed to say that I have never cooked them as I … View The Post
There is an emerging trend in nutrition called ‘flexitarianism’ that I must say, I’m rather drawn to. I’m a big supporter of a vegetarian diet for the obvious reasons that it is great for our personal health and the environment. However, many people shy away from the idea of forever abandoning that steak or grilled chicken. The concept of ‘flexitarian’ … View The Post
