Baked Rosemary Ricotta Dip

During our last Costco adventure, I bought a massive tub of Ricotta for a lasagna I was making. I ended up using very little of it, and I HATE wasting cheese, that’s just such a tragedy. My mom and her friends (my “aunts”) had their “knitting night”…and I use the term knitting night LOOSELY …at my apartment last night so I had the perfect opportunity … Continue reading Baked Rosemary Ricotta Dip

Cheesecake

Cheesecake is hands down one of my favourite desserts, they’re rich, creamy and seem to be endless in flavours. While I do love a good rich, chocolate cheesecake, it’s summertime and that just seemed like it was going to be too heavy, and there’s such beautiful fruits and berries right now it seemed like a good chance to showcase them, so plain cheesecake it is! … Continue reading Cheesecake

Olive Tapenade (Vegan)

In a brave effort to host eight people for Sunday dinner at my apartment I tried to keep things as easy and make ahead as possible. With the oven full (and not to mention my apartment is 3 million degrees…with the fan on), there was no room or desire to make a hot appetizer. I’m so glad you’re here because the tapenade is good. I … Continue reading Olive Tapenade (Vegan)

Peanut Butter & Blueberry Chia Muffins

These tasty little treats were the result of me trying to perk myself up and get myself organized for the week ahead. The last couple (challenging) weeks have been a write-off resulting in me spending more than I’d like to on food that I would normally prepare myself (along with spending more than I should be on a fun distracting app). So instead of spending … Continue reading Peanut Butter & Blueberry Chia Muffins

Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Quinoa Bake

I’m the proud owner of a Costco size bag of quinoa. I wouldn’t say I “needed” it, but it was right there in front of me and everything at Costco is so tempting (i.e. the massive blocks of cheese). Not to mention a little box of quinoa isn’t always cheap, so it was a pretty good deal…and quinoa is dellisssh. This bake is pretty great … Continue reading Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Quinoa Bake

Olive di Casino Royale (Fried Olives – Vegan)

I know I haven’t posted in a while…I’m sorry all my faithful followers! It’s been crazy lately. I was away on a family ski trip, I was sick, and I’m moving next weekend…so needless to say I have my hands full! My kitchen has been totally packed up ready for the move, so I don’t even have a fork or knife, but thankfully I have … Continue reading Olive di Casino Royale (Fried Olives – Vegan)

Butterscotch Croissant Pudding

Carbs are awesome. Don’t let anyone tell you differently, you do not need that kind of negativity in your life. Bread is definitely one my personal favourite carbs. My favourite dinner? Bread, cheese, and wine. That will woo me over any day. Honestly though bread is SO versatile you can do basically anything you want with it. Even bad bread is good. Stale Panetonne? Toast … Continue reading Butterscotch Croissant Pudding
