Cheddar & Onion Pierogi

Pierogi are delicious. They’re creamy, carbie, cheesy, and super versatile. You can do so much with them. One of my favourite ways to eat them is when we eat them for breakfast while we’re camping. They’re delicious with eggs, bacon and ketchup. Although, when we make that, we’re using frozen pierogi’s, not these delicious hand crafted ones! These aren’t complicated to make. It’s a simple … Continue reading Cheddar & Onion Pierogi

Zucchini “Meat”balls (Vegetarian)

Oh my gosh guys – the stores are insane. I’m not ashamed to say that I had a full blown melt down in the middle of the store yesterday (tears and all) when I had to scrounge to find a can of crushed tomatoes for my weekly grocery shop in the midst of a sea of people trying to get that exact same can. But … Continue reading Zucchini “Meat”balls (Vegetarian)

Curried Sweet Potato Fries & Cucumber Raita

The grocery store has got me all confuzzled. When I went to develop this recipe and play around with it the other night, I bought what I believed was a sweet potato. I got it home, started peeling it, and there it was. White flesh. Excuse me, sir? I mean they still tasted really good. It tasted like…well…sweet potato. I was incredibly confused and a … Continue reading Curried Sweet Potato Fries & Cucumber Raita

Vegetable Broth

It’s soup season! I gifted myself a new dutch oven just in time for the cold/snowy hit we’re getting here in Vancouver! It was a pain to bring home on the train with me, but I couldn’t wait to use it! With soup season, having stock or broth on hand is a necessity. There is actually a difference between stock or broth that I believe … Continue reading Vegetable Broth

Citrusy Curry Tofu (Vegan)

One of the things I love about going to Maui is the familiarity and feeling of home. I’ve been spoiled and have grown up travelling there…a lot (thank you gramma and gramps for smart investing!) and we have our own routine…or traditions when we’re there. One of our traditions is our Maui breakfast. Fresh fruit, cottage cheese, toast and maybeee a mimosa or two. Buttttt … Continue reading Citrusy Curry Tofu (Vegan)
