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…

Easy Peasy Lemony Bread

In addition to the Easy Oatmeal Bread I made on Saturday night, I decided to whip up a second batch of bread. Sometimes it’s just that much easier to bake two loaves at the same time when you have all the ingredients out already. I was going to make two batches of oatmeal bread but…

Easy Oatmeal Bread

I ran out of bread tonight and bagels too and was craving something crunchy – so I decided to whip up one of my favorite recipes which I call Easy Oatmeal Bread. It’s a cross between a loaf and a muffin but tastes delicious. I just love the crispy topping. This recipe is so easy…

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…

Delicious Coffee Cake

Two weeks into my little to no bread challenge and I’m already slipping. I am getting my groceries delivered tomorrow. Once upon a time, I used to order in things like cupcakes and would eat a whole package myself. Not anymore. Most everything I eat these days – I tend to make with my own…

Creamy Tomato and Vegetable Soup (updated)

Update: I just had some left overs for lunch. This was, hands down, the BEST soup I have ever made!!! I’m definitely making this again. But next time, with real tomatoes. So amazing. Add a bit more cream or milk to really thicken up the soup base. So. Yum. While putting stuff away from this…

Slow-cooked beef stew

While waiting for my morning coffee to brew, I hopped onto youtube. I was still contemplating on going back to bed, when I remembered that I had some vegetables that I needed to do something with. I scoured through my freezer and found some beef cubes. I’ve posted several recipes for stews in the past,…

Broccoli and Chicken Casserole

Last night was a really lazy night. I heated up some of that barley soup but the microwave barely heated it up and I was eating luke warm soup. Not that appetizing. I just received my bi-weekly grocery order and all the food has been put away. I really need to pay more attention to…

Cooking Tips: staple ingredients every aspiring chef should own

Today, I wanted to talk about cooking basics. The more I learn about cooking, the more excited I become and want to share everything with you. I’m far from being a professional chef. The reason I wanted to become a better cook was for health and financial reasons. I realized how much money I was…

Ukrainian Sausage Recipe

I found some sausage in my drawer that I forgot I had. This is a common problem as a single person living on her own. It’s also why I refuse to store vegetables into the proper vegetable drawer. I use it so rarely, that great food often gets forgotten down there. Did you know potatoes…
