Mexican Chicken Fajita Bowl

I know yesterday was grilled cheese day but I was kind of craving mexican food. I made this awesome chicken fajita bowl with sauteed peppers and onions, rice and beans and a little lettuce and tomato. I used cooked rotisserie chicken and mixed that with peppers and onions in my pan then I seasoned all that…

Coconut Macaroons

No these are not fancy french macarons, these are delicious classic coconut macaroons. I was tired of just being sick and I got back in the kitchen, like I mentioned in my last post. If you like coconut, you will love macaroons. They are a classic passover treat but homemade is waaaaayy better than macaroons that come…

Sick Days: Tea and Puzzles

I know my blog is all about food, so I realize that this post is a little different. As you can read from the title, I am currently sick which is such a bummer. The weather here has been so weird (super nice and sunny one day, then rainy and cold the next). So I…

St Pattys Pinwheel Cookies

I’m going to a saint patrick’s day party this weekend so I wanted to do a little baking for the occasion. I’ve always wanted to make pinwheel cookies because I’ve never done it before. I knew it would be a little time consuming because of the rolling and freezing between stages, but I’m pretty happy with…

Chicken Curry and Aloo Gobi

I didn’t really create the recipes for these things but I wanted to share because they were delicious. The chicken curry was from onceuponachef.com. I followed exactly as the recipe said but didn’t put the yogurt or cilantro at the end. The aloo gobi was from the instant pot website. For this recipe, the only…

Tomato and Chickpea Salad

I have a lot of chickpea recipes (mostly sslads) on my blog – if you go to the bottom of my site and type chickpea in the search box, you will see the whole collection.  So this salad had chickpeas, tomato, green onion and a simple olive oil and lemon based dressing. I mixed the…

Potato Knishes

I’ve made these once in my life (around 10 years ago). My grandma taught me how to make them and for some reason, I haven’t made them since. But I finally made them on the weekend and I’m sure she would be proud of me – she passed away a couple years ago. If you…

Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

Winter is the time for frozen treats – I love the irony of cold things in cold weather. This recipe was super simple with only 4 basic ingredients, then you can add whatever mixins/other flavours. All you have to do is mix plain greek yogurt, milk, honey and vanilla in a bowl then toss it…

Biscuit Avocado Toast

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love avocado. This was a little twist on basic avocado toast.  Instead of bread, I used homemade biscuits. So obviously it wasn’t crunchy like toast would be, but it was equally delicious. I put mashed avocado, cucumber, feta cheese, chili flakes and oregano….

Curried Carrot and Chickpea Salad

I love salads. I’m sure I’ve said that before, but this salad was better than I thought it would be. My dilemma is usually trying to figure out what kind of dressing to put on my ingredients – what actually goes in the salad is easy for me. This time, I had some shredded carrot…

Cheesecake Brownie Squares

Sorry if the title started to make your mouth water. Cheesecake and brownies are two of my favourite desserts and when combined, they go to a whole other level of yumminess. I actually got this idea from a video I saw on facebook for oreo cheesecake brownies. I didn’t have oreos but I thought I could…

Asian Tofu and Cabbage Bowl

When I started making dishes with cold tofu, I was pretty much doing it because I didn’t want to cook anything. But now, I’m doing it because I really like how it tastes. So today, for my bowl, I started with some shredded cabbage and almost made an asian hoisin coleslaw with it. I made a…
