What I’ve been making lately – May 3

Shawarma We have been craving one of our favourite take-out dinners lately – Shawarma. We thought maybe we could take a stab at making it. We more or less followed this recipe for the chicken. For the garlic toum we used this recipe. For the […]

Souped Up Trader Joe’s Miso Ramen Soup Whenever I make the trek to Trader Joe’s, I pick up a couple of these soups. I love them for lunch. I was a little hungrier this day, so I add some more ramen noodles, frozen corn, and […]

What I’ve been making lately – April 4

Shakshuka I love making Shakshuka. I make it for any brunch I’m hosting, and often for dinner when we’re not sure what else to make. It’s easy, tasty, and decently inexpensive. For mine, I used a jar of tomato sauce (but obviously feel free to […]

I tried out Chef’s Plate for a week

I tried out Chef’s Plate for a week

A friend of mine had a code for Chef’s Plate, a meal subscription service here in Canada. I was able to get 3 free meals for 2 (thanks Natalie!!) It felt like the perfect time to try something like this out. We’re trying to limit […]

I love a good party mix. How could you not with the delicious combination of salty goodness. The only thing I don’t like in the mix is pretzels. I always take them out. It’s not that I am vehemently against pretzels. I just don’t want […]

2020 Resolutions

I like to make resolutions and goals for myself. And I like putting them out there on the internet so people can share their experiences, give tips, and it keeps my accountable. It also helps me look back on my previous goals and see how […]

A Taste of Iceland

A Taste of Iceland

Iceland isn’t necessarily known for being a food destination. Because it’s an island, and there’s not much arable land, they have to ship a lot of food in. That’s reflected in the prices. It’s not super cheap to eat dinner out, that’s for sure. Here’s […]

All of the things we ate at The Ex 2019

All of the things we ate at The Ex 2019

The Canadian National Exhibition, more affectionately known as “The Ex” is akin to State Fairs in the USA. There’s wild food, carnival games, rides I mostly refuse to go on, and so much more. It takes place over the last few weeks of the summer […]

Summer Steak Salad

Summer Steak Salad

It’s a great time to be enjoying the bounty that Niagara has to offer. The local farmers markets are stocked up during the summer. It’s a great place to pick up ingredients for an easy summer salad. I know you know how to make a […]
