Eating Poké in Maui

  Aloha! I’ve recently returned home from a 2 week stay in Maui with my husband and could not wait to share my experience on this beautiful island. What did I love about it? Everything! The tranquility of the ocean, the melody of the waves that I fell asleep to every night, the west Maui…

I scream for ice cream

Yes, it is summer and we all scream for ice cream. Typically I cook based on what ingredients I have in the fridge or pantry. This time I decided to try a recipe because I had the equipment to do it. I am the recent owner of a Kitchen Aid ice cream maker so of…

I’m back!…With Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats

It’s been a number of months since my last post. Almost 8 months to be more precise. Why haven’t I written? Well, I could say it’s been life getting busy…work, family, friends, I got married! (it’s true…on July 9th). But really it’s been me not having the courage to keep on writing and sharing my…

Smashed Avocado & Tomato Toast

Christmas dinner hasn`t happened yet, but the gluttony of Holiday eating has definitely started for me. The past few weeks I`ve indulged in Christmas baked goods, daily chocolate from the advent calendar, cheese and charcuterie boards from pre-holiday get-togethers and more than my fair share of red wine. To top it all off, I haven`t…

Gluten-free Biscotti

The house is decorated, the Christmas tree is lit and the television is always set to the Yuletide Fireplace channel, blaring Holiday music. I’m always inspired to bake for friends and family during Christmas. This year however I was challenged…

Here’s why? – They bring together the flavours of many ingredients, cooking together in one easy to clean pot or dish. – They are cover tonight’s dinner and  a few days of leftovers. – They are freezable. – They take the stress out of making a side dish. – They…

Penne with Tuna and Tomato Sauce

This one’s an oldie, but a goodie. I have been making this recipe for over 10 years as my go-to weeknight meal. This recipe requires no pre-washing, no chopping, no pealing or pre-making. Just boil water, cook the pasta and mix a few staple ingredients with tomato sauce (homemade or store bought) to kick up…

Quinoa Zucchini Fritters

The weekend is when my weekday routine is pleasantly turned upside down. I don’t have to wake up when my alarm goes off, I can just keep hitting snooze. I don’t have to rush out of the house to beat morning traffic so I can get to work on time. And, I don’t have to…
