Happy New Year! A combination of busyness and laziness has led to an increase in my eating-out/ordering-in over the last year–far too many Wendy’s burgers, Tim Horton’s breakfast sandwiches and rolls of sushi have been consumed. Thus, one of my goals for 2019 is to curb that tendency, and so I’ve kicked off the year with what…
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.
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!).
Slow-cookers are apparently a godsend when it comes to easy, leftover-making meals, so I thought it high time to try my hand at it. I’ve always been a fan of butter chicken, a classic staple in any Indian restaurant, and this recipe seemed like a straightforward one to start with.
While it might not be bright orange like the Indian restaurant style butter chicken, this version is melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
Quick, easy and one of my go-to recipes during the week. Great with salad for lunches or with potatoes and veggies for dinner.
I’m always on the hunt for easy meals that will make good leftovers. Casseroles definitely fit the bill. I realized I hadn’t really ever made a casserole, so I thought it high time to try my hand at it.
Happy New Year! One of the lovely gifts I received this Christmas was Anthony Bourdain’s Les Halles Cookbook from my husband. In looking through the book, both of us spotted this recipe as looking particularly delicious, so we thought that trying it on New Year’s Eve would be a wonderful way to end of the year.
One of our resolutions at the start of the year was to try our hand at making lasagne, which neither of us had ever made. Given the wealth of obscurer dishes we’ve tried, I’m not sure why it’s taken us this long to try it. We had extra ricotta cheese after making our delicious gnudi last week,…
David came across this recipe in the recipe book I gave him last Christmas and was eager to give it a try. I was particularly interested in the gnudi (pronounced [nudi]), which I discovered are a subset of gnocchi from Florence, made with predominantly ricotta and spinach. The recipe looked to be quite an endeavour, so we…
