Spicy Tofu with a Noodle Salad

It is finally here, perfected and ready to share with everyone! Full disclosure, I had a challenging time getting the creative juices flowing to write this one up for you all. For me, this time of year is when I become weirdly obsessed with eating salads, and all the fresh local produce I can. I…

No Bake Cheesecake with Rhubarb

Easy, delicious, make-ahead no bake rhubarb cheesecake is going to be your favourite dessert for this summer. Rhubarb season is in full force, and the days are getting longer and hotter, and sometimes in the summer, you get sick of eating ice cream (I don’t but let’s just say we do). Sometimes you want to…

Homemade Refried Beans

One thing I have mentioned over and over again is that Kodi and I have been focusing on cost savings and zero waste in our house. This month of April, I am going to focus on zero waste recipes, and creating a zero waste kitchen (blog post coming soon). Every morning we make breakfast, and…

Copy Cat Corn Salsa

If I am going to be honest, this recipe came up because I was craving a burrito bowl from Chipotle, and I didn’t want to drive all the way to Langley, or downtown Vancouver. So as I kept opening and closing the fridge, freezer and all the cupboards with not inspiration and not wanting anything…

The Simple Equation for Roasting Veg

Roasted Veggies are one of my FAVOURITE things to make in the winter time. It is easy, you can add any type of seasoning to create different flavours, and usually, winter veg is nice and hearty and can last for a couple of days for leftover lunches. The best thing about roasting vegetables is that…

Garlicky Bruschetta

I will admit that I am a tomato feen. If cherry tomatoes are on the counter, I will eat one every time I walk by them. If there is salsa in the fridge, I will make anything I can to put salsa on, and if there is bruschetta being made, well you better not tell…

Just In Time For Christmas- Amaretto Pudding

HELLO!!! I am back from my three months hiatus from my cooking blog. WOW, what a whirlwind of the three months it has been. Honestly, I haven’t had time to reflect yet, but it was a roller coaster of a ride, and I came out of it feeling like I can conquer anything. I learned…
