Sunday problems – baking disasters

Last night I got the brilliant idea of baking something at 9:00 pm at night. I was craving chocolate cake of all things. I looked online for a bit to find some easy recipes. But you know, most of the recipes are all the same after awhile. People just word it a bit differently, or…

Easy Rice Cooker Recipes

Though I haven’t felt much like cooking this past month – life kind of got in the way of that – I’m slowly getting back into the kitchen. I’ve been going through some older photos I took last year and decided that I should start sharing them here with you. When lockdown first began in…

Comfort food: Creamy Asparagus Soup and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

I’m feeling a little sick to the stomach after the emotional turmoil we faced saying goodbye to the house. I’m also really missing my mum more than ever. Especially with Thanksgiving coming up this weekend and our family is not allowed to get together to celebrate. COVID cases are on the rise here and the…

Apple Crumble Recipe – easy to make and delicious

Last night, I made the best apple crumble I’ve ever tasted. I’m honestly amazed at how good it turned out. I ate a second helping before bed – bad I know – but man. It’s tasty. I’m going to make another batch this week with the crab apples my sister gave me. Maybe it’s the…

Dinner with Friends – Quiche & Apple Crumble

There is a massive pile of dishes currently sitting in my sink that I should put away but I don’t care. I am finally catching up with friends that I haven’t seen since before COVID hit in March. The world went into isolation and we couldn’t see each other. But we finally found a night…

Shrimp Fried Rice (rice cooker edition)

I was feeling a little inspired last night as I started to clean out my fridge for my weekly shopping trip. I decided to get out my new rice cooker and whipped up this dish. It was during this process that I realized my rice cooker is just too small for casseroles and Asian inspired…

What’s Cooking: Bean and vegetable chili

I didn’t know what to call this recipe. It’s more chili like – but this recipe contains vegetables. It’s my “end of the week” fridge clean out day – and I wanted to break in my new instant post / rice cooker with a great meal. And it was delicious. I was super stoked to…

Banana and strawberry breakfast loaf

When I got my groceries delivered last week, the store had given a package of 1 kg of fresh strawberries. This is more than one person should ever need in a given week. I washed and cut them into slices right away and froze about 1/4 of the package. I love strawberries – but not…

Lazy Omelets

Eggs for dinner on a Friday night? Absolutely. I was flipping through Skip the Dishes on my phone when my fingers lingered over the Denny’s logo. I was hemming and hawing over whether I should order in a Lumberjack meal or have an omelette. I realized what a waste of money that would be when…
