I endeavoured to make gnocchi last weekend. How could it be that difficult, I thought. It wasn’t really. What else would I be doing with that time, I wondered. And so I set off to find a seemingly easy to follow gnocchi recipe. I did find one, by googling “Jamie Oliver gnocchi recipe”. You can […]
I’ve never had much luck with recipes requiring yeast. Either the dough didn’t rise, or I over-proofed it and it collapsed. Recipes calling for yeast always seemed very science-y to me. You know, requiring you adhere to the recipe exactly. I will say that this recipe does require you follow the steps to the letter, […]
Possibly an exaggeration, but ultimately, that’s the kind of dinner I’m looking for during the week. Today’s recipe came about somewhat haphazardly when wandering through the aisles of our new local grocery store. You know you live in a small town when the opening of the grocery store leads to near riot type of excitement. […]
I’m quite open about my love of cookbooks. In fact, when we recently renovated our house, I was very concerned with finding a spot in our kitchen for those books. Having them on a shelf in a room far away from the kitchen was just not working for me. Now, they’re easily accessible to me […]
Salads in the summer appeal to me for a couple reasons: I don’t like heating my house any more than I have to and I don’t often feel like having a heavy meal when it’s hot outside. Enter this salad.

In fact, I had big plans to make my own tortillas too, but the motivation ran out after several hours were spent in the kitchen. I searched for ages, trying to find a recipe for carnitas that didn’t involve using […]
I’m not eating eggs that often. I love eggs and this is very upsetting. In fact, I had blood taken for a food sensitivity test and it let me know that I shouldn’t be eating any dairy, egg whites, corn, peas, or food or drink made using brewer’s yeast. Essentially, all of the things that […]
Happy New Year! It’s the 6th, so I guess we’re getting to the point where it’s no longer necessary to mention that it’s 2018. I have several new cookbooks to share recipes with you this year. Today’s recipe is for Mango Apple Ceviche and it’s really good. It’s from the new Smitten Kitchen cookbook, which […]
Is this the best pasta bake I’ve ever had? Quite possibly. There was a lot of flavour and it was really filling. Oh look! Another NY Times gem: Here! Start by heating your oven to 425F. Cut your 1.5lbs of broccoli (or cauliflower, if that’s what you have!) into florets. Toss your florets with a […]
