Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter and chocolate. What could be better? Well adding jam puts it up there. Those 3 things together are fantastically beautiful. I recently saw a video of making homemade peanut butter cups and they put jelly in it and I thought it was a great idea. I had like 2 lbs of chocolate chips…

Quinoa Salad

I was in the mood for a light dinner, so I made a nice and healthy salad with quinoa. I cooked it up then added some frozen corn and edamame afterwards and thawed them with the residual heat. I let that cool down then added olives and cucumber. I made a little dressing of olive…

Salmon Tacos

Yummy yummy tacos. Soft tacos > hard tacos. This one had salmon which I simply baked in the oven. I have a plain flour tortilla, iceberg lettuce, sriracha, mayo, avocado and mango salsa (mango, cilantro, honey, lime juice, chili flakes, salt). All together, it just works. So many good flavours and it was pretty guilt…

Spicy Tuna + Veggie Sushi

Sushi sushi sushi. I made a lot. I love sushi cause it’s pretty easy to make once you have all the ingredients ready. I made 3 varieties with just different combinations of ingredients. I used red pepper, cucumber, avocado, and spicy tuna (tuna, mayonnaise, sriracha).  It turned out really well and I enjoyed it very…

Falafel Bowl

I made a super awesome dinner that had a complete theme today. It was kind of a big deal. I made these falafels (recipe from minimalistbaker.com) but I baked instead of fried them cause I hate frying. They were softer than they should be but still delicious. To go with them, I made roasted potatoes (olive oil,…

Ethiopian Platter

I obviously did not make this food. I honestly don’t really know what I was eating but it was so good. You basically get this “bread” called injera, you rip a piece off and grab some food with your fingers. You scoop it up and just eat it. No cutlery, no plates. It’s quite different…

Forgotten Cookies

Honestly, these cookies are magic. Well first of all, I guess they aren’t even really cookies, they’re meringues. Either way, they are my favourite treat to make during passover even though there are no special passover ingredients in them. They are probably one of the easiest things to make but they technically take a while…

Sauteed Kale, Apple and Edamame

This meal actually started out as a salad from last night’s dinner (without the edamame). It was the kale, chopped apple and a simple dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. There was quite a bit leftover and I didn’t want to eat the exact same thing again. So I just put everything…

Colourful Roasted Veggies

I just want to start my mentioning that I know I have a lot of vegetarian/vegan posts, but it’s just a coincidence. I do eat meat but sometimes it’s just more convenient and easier to not use it. But for all you carnivores, you could likely very easily incorporate meat into any of the things…

Greek Avocado Pizza

Avocado is awesome on a pizza, you should try it! I have a pita base with smashed avocado, feta cheese, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, olives and hot sauce. It was really really good.
