White Bean & Chorizo Soup

White Bean & Chorizo Soup

I love pureed soups.  Much much more than chunky soups actually.  It’s something about the smooth, silky texture that’s comforting for me.  Thanks to last year’s new kitchen addition of mine (thank you Christmas 2013), pureed soups are easier to make than ever.   Read More

Brussel & Sweet Potato Stir Fry

Veggie Thai Stir Fry

Thanksgiving is coming and I am BEYOND excited for it!  The classics are awesome – turkey, mashed potatoes, sausage stuffing, etc – and it just isn’t the holidays without them.  Every year though, I like to try something new….something non-traditional.  So with this post, I made a stir-fry/hash to show some love for the non-meat-eaters.  They should eat delicious food on turkey day too!   Read More

Irish Coffee Glazed Banana Cake

Banana Cake with Irish Coffee Glaze

You may or may not already know that I do not have the merits, nor the patience to be a baker.  Bakers are a whole separate breed of super humans that I have total respect for.  That being said, I decided to take on the feat of making my very own cake recipe from scratch.  Thanks to a handy little guide I found on ratios (link below) and the heavenly angels that answered my prayers as I stared at the oven hoping the whole thing wouldn’t overflow, I HAVE A CAKE OF MY OWN!  Let’s make it happen for you too, mmm k?   Read More

Chopped Kale Salad with Candied Walnuts

Chopped kale candied walnut salad

Balancing, developing, and layering flavors.  All very important skills to have when making delicious food and it isn’t discussed nearly enough.  I remember craving knowledge on this topic when making the switch from following other people’s recipes to making my own.  There just wasn’t as much out there as I thought the topic deserved.  Read More

Fall Vegetable & White Sauce Lasagna

Fall vegetable & white sauce lasagna

I would never really eat lasagna as a kid.  It was the red sauce that I didn’t like.  Who knows why – probably too much texture and/or vegetables for a pre-teen to get on board with.  This lasagna, however, is something that I always was and always will be a fan of.  Enter: The White Sauce.  Read More

Crab Rangoon Poutine

Crab Rangoon Poutine

When I first heard of poutine, I didn’t understand the concept.  You mean to tell me that you take hot, crispy, wonderful french fries and pour gravy all over them? Don’t they immediately turn soggy and gross?

Turns out…..   Read More
