I was in the mood for some comfort food and realized I’d never made this classic. Meat in one hand, mashed potatoes in the other. Put your hands together! My two favourite food groups in one dish.
Breakfast for dinner calls for both savoury and sweet, and these scones marry those together in one buttery, delightful mouthful.
Our lab manager, Lisa, is a big fan of raspberry pie, and so for her birthday, I couldn’t imagine bringing anything else. Since I’d made a straight raspberry pie relatively recently for the lab, I wanted to find a variation. Enter: raspberry crumble.
A post-American Thanksgiving treat. I realized I’d never actually made a traditional pecan pie and thought it was high time to give it a try.
Sweet and savoury is such a classic combination, but I particularly enjoy it when it comes in a dessert format. So when I came across shortbread cookies with basil, my tastebuds perked up. Recipe from Bon Appetit magazine 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup powdered sugar plus more for dusting 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into 1/2″…
Anyone who knows me knows I love all things pie, so I’m always curious what people’s favourite pie flavours are. Lunchtime discussions with Lisa, our lab manager, determined hers to be raspberry, which (for some strange reason) I’d never tried. I can’t say I’d ever even heard of raspberry pie, as it seems to play second…
A good ol’ tomato soup, despite being ubiquitous on most restaurant menus, is something I’d never actually made myself. It’s a classic pairing with grilled cheese sandwiches and other delightful comfort foods, so it seemed high time I give it a try.
Sometimes a little bit of comfort food is necessary, and a good tuna melt fits the bill. This was the first recipe I tried out of Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings cookbook, given to me before I left Chicago.
One of the perils of living alone is the tendency to avoid dessert-making. It’s an understandable avoidance (eating an entire cake by oneself seems a trifle extravagant and would likely have regrettable consequences on the waistline). However, my love for pie overcame any reservations I may have had about solo pie consumption. I came across…
I’m always a fan of meat inside meat. This is a classy riff on a dish that my mom used to always make–chicken stuffed with ham and cheese, with a bit of “healthy” sauce thrown in (there are mushrooms in it!).
