I started writing this blog a few days ago and opened with “I think the jet lag is finally wearing off” HA! What a tease. 2 nights ago I went to bed at 6PM and slept 14 hours and last night I went to bed and here we are now, at 5am! I’ve been back… Continue reading Eating My Way Through Thailand: Chiang Mai
HELLO HELLO HELLO! I’ve been neglecting my beautiful little blog lately. How rude! But I’m back, BAYBEEE! I spent a month in Canada where I absolutely destroyed my body, eating nothing but poutine and late night jerk chicken and beef patties. Not to mention the libations I’d treat myself to whenever the mood struck! Needless… Continue reading Breadless Sweet Potato, Sausage and Veggie Stuffing
Cinco De Mayo was yesterday! Lots of people think it’s Mexico’s independence day but it’s actually a date to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Not that I need an excuse to eat Mexican food, but it definitely inspired me to try something I haven’t done… Continue reading Chicken Al Pastor
Now that Canadian Thanksgiving has passed, it’s time to prep for AMERICAN THANKSGIVING. I love an excuse to eat multiple thanksgiving dinners, so why not celebrate both? Despite the current political climate, we still have a lot to be thankful for. Usually for Canadian thanksgiving I’ll celebrate with family or a big group of friends.… Continue reading Thanksgiving For Two
Every once and a while it’s fun to ditch what you’re familiar with and try something completely new. About a year ago my friends and I got together and had a Peruvian themed dinner party. We all made a dish and got to taste some food and flavours that we didn’t get a chance to… Continue reading Banh Mi, Baby!
Happy belated national pizza day! I didn’t even know that february 9th was a special pizza day until I saw the hashtag trending on Twitter. When it comes to food, I am very easily influenced so I just HAD to make have for NPD! Considering I didn’t anticipate on making pizza, I used the ingredients… Continue reading Pesto Chicken Pizza
I love pasta. I love meat sauce. I love it so much that I decided to make TWO completely different dishes using the popular “pasta and meat sauce” combo. Spaghetti squash & ground chicken boats Spaghetti & meatballs in red sauce Let’s start with the lighter option. Spaghetti squash is one of those neat veggies… Continue reading Spaghetti and Meat Sauce, Two Ways!
Last week was a rough. Cancer took the lives of a ton of celebrities (and a ton of other people who aren’t famous so it wasn’t in the news. F*&# CANCER). The one that affected me the most was David Bowie, probably because I thought he was immortal. Obviously I know he’s not immortal, I’m… Continue reading Star Anise Chicken with Mars Bar Mole
I MADE SO MUCH SOUP LAST WEEK. Monday morning felt about -20 and I was NOT having it. Fortunately, I had a few soup recipes that I was just dying to try. I have a tub of miso paste in my fridge that I barely use. Aside from being loaded with salt it’s actually very… Continue reading Soup, there it is!
Seriously. I have been craving chicken ALL week. The past few days have been pretty hectic and it seemed like every other minute I was heading to a holiday party and gorging my face on cheese and Swedish meatballs. That being said, I defrosted a whole chicken and I needed to cook it before it… Continue reading I feel like Chicken!
