Penne Alfredo and Tuna Patties

This was a really awesome, almost nostalgic dinner.  I really wanted a nice alfredo pasta but I wanted a lighter version. I found a recipe online (from gimmesomeoven.com) and I barely made any changes. Since I didn’t have any parmesan (sadly), I added a bit more salt but also some chili flakes, parsley, black pepper and…

Buddha Bowl

Buddha bowl: bunch of yummy things put together to create a bowl of deliciousness! (Very accurate definition) This one has chickpeas, cooked sweet potato, cucumber, parsley and a pesto dressing. Couldn’t be easier!

Peanut Noodles

Another super easy meal, brought to you by me! This meal was kind of a cross between peanut noodles and a regular stirfry. Just sauteed some onions, carrots and peppers, then add ginger and a few chilis for flavour. Once that’s all blended nicely, add cooked spaghetti (you can use real asian style noodles instead)….

Pita Pizza

Pita pizzas are one of my favourite and easy lunches to make. You don’t need to use real pizza dough to have an awesome meal. I just put some great toppings on a pita and popped it in the oven. I used pizza sauce, sliced olives, tomato, cheese, oregano, basil and chili flakes. It got…

Spaghetti Squash Bowl

This was a super awesome and kind of cheating way to make a nice noodle bowl. So the base is actually spaghetti squash flavoured with soy sauce, honey, sriracha and sesame oil. This is a really nice alternative to real pasta, so much healthier too. On top, I have some roasted asparagus, edamame and these…

Chili and Cornbread

It’s been really cold here recently so I made a really nice and warm dinner. Chili and cornbread is one of my favourite combinations. The cornbread is based on a recipe I found online (joyofkosher.com), but I added some corn kernels and diced jalapeño for extra flavour and texture. The original recipe makes a big…

Couscous Salad with Beans

I love couscous. This will be my 6th couscous recipe on my blog now. I just had some leftovers in the fridge, so I made a simple, mexican inspired salad. I used blackbeans, edamame, parsley, lime juice, honey, salt and pepper, and sriracha on top. I know it is so easy, but I thought it…

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

For some reason, there were like 8 bell peppers in my house so I thought ‘why not make some stuff peppers’. So I did. I found this recipe online (minimalistbaker.com) and it looked really good and I was super happy cause I had pretty much had everything it called for. I did make a few…

Jam Hamantaschens

The Jewish holiday called purim is coming up and I did a little baking for the occasion. These are called hamantaschens and they’re essentially a cookie that can be filled with whatever you want – lemon curd, jam, chocolate chips. I got this recipe online (toriavey.com) and I’ve made it a few times in precious…

Baked Tofu, Roasted Vegetables and Asian Coleslaw

This dinner started off my having an asian theme but then it kinda turned I guess a little american. Either way, it all tasted pretty good. For the tofu, I just cut one block into thin-ish squares and laid them on paper towel just to dry off a bit. Then I put them on a…

Banana Bread Muffins

I love muffins. I’ve had these muffins a few times now and I finally made a post about them. It’s a recipe from cookieandkate and I love them. I feel like they are much healthier than some other recipes that you find online and they are so delicious. Lots of banana flavour and I put…

Chicken and Sweet Potato Ragout

This is just an awesome meal, super filling. I guess you could say it’s in between a soup and a chowder.  Pretty simple and healthy, which are two things I love. Start by sautéing chopped onions then add chopped sweet potatoes (and carrots) and start to cook them. Then add chicken broth, shredded cabbage (I…
