So dust off the tequila and pull out the blenders and make yourself a margarita to celebrate Thursday! Grapefruit Margarita!  Ingredients: 2 cups of water…

Mango Salsa

  Sometimes, you want something different on your tacos than just Pico de Gallo .  This Mango salsa recipe is super easy and quick to make. Perfect for my countdown to our Mexico trip and can be used on a variety of foods (not just tacos). You can double the recipe for a big party or cut…

Low Carb Skillet Chicken Parm

Since the countdown to Mexico is on for Kodi and me, I have been trying to get bikini ready by cutting down on carbs. I will say that this is not my thing, and I am the WORST at sticking to anything. My motto with food is: you only live once, eat what you want…

Warm Spinach Salad

Sometimes all I want in the winter months is a salad, but something about a nice fresh salad in the winter does not make sense to me. Many years ago, my grandpa would make this spinach dish, not too sure what it was, but it was always tasty, and I never knew what was in…

Mushroom & Pea Risotto

I have been making risotto for over 15 years with my Dad. Not only was it one of my favorite meals, it was also one I have learned many different ways, not only from Dad but also a few crazy Italians I have come across in my life and grade 11 home economics class. Risotto…

Chocolate Coffee Cake with Bailey’s Butter Cream

Sometimes all you crave is a moist piece of chocolate cake. My grandma makes the best chocolate cake, and I can never completely recreate it. After many tries, I think I finally have it. This chocolate coffee cake is so sweet and moist with the perfect balance of Bailey’s buttercream frosting is perfect with a…

My Perfect Pico de Gallo

I love chips and salsa. At parties, I am the person who stands by the food table with no self-control with the chips and salsa. That is how much I love chips and salsa! There could be worse things to love that much. Because of my love from salsa, I put it on everything: eggs,…

Happy National Strawberry Ice Cream Day!

When I think of strawberry ice cream I get flashbacks of summer time, walking around at Steveston at sunset with a cone of double stacked ice cream. Is summer here yet??? Just because it is Strawberry Ice cream day, I have compiled a few of my favourite recipes for you all to try out! Now,…

Butternut Squash Soup

Fall is the time of squash, red wines and for me, colds. Unfortunately I seem to always get sick during fall just before Christmas right after Halloween. No matter what, soup always makes you feel better, but over time I get bored of the same soup over and over again. This soup is creamy without…

Kodi’s “PINA COLADA” Chocolate banana bread

For about a year, Kodi has been on a mission to re create his mom’s banana bread recipe she made when he was a kid. It was one of those recipes that are glued to the inside of the kitchen cabinet that was many, many years old. He always talks about how moist and yummy…

Vegan Veggie Curry!

As some people may know, I have taken an online university course, so I haven’t really been cooking or experimenting a lot lately. That explains my hiatus a bit. The other day, I was taking a break from work and school and scrolling thru Pinterest while staring at my cupboards and fridge trying to find…

Simple Pesto!

Pesto is typically made out of basil, garlic, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese and olive oil. But because K is allergic to pine nuts I have gotten creative with different pesto recipes. Sometimes I substitute another nut, like an almond or a sunflower seed (technically not a nut but shh.) Before, I use to throw all…
