Chicken Tacos

Ever since visiting Chipotle for the first time when I was down in Arizona last month, I have been craving Mexican food. Specifically, I have been craving Chipotle, but as there isn't one here in Edmonton I thought I should check on-line and see if I could find some copy cat recipes. Well, lo-and-behold there…

Skinny Taco Dip

For some reason there is something so delicious and wonderful about dip. I'm not sure what it is that I love about it....the dipping action itself or the fact that dips are almost always wonderfully creamy and unhealthy. Either way, I love a good dip. So, when I was browsing through one of my favourite…

12 Posts of Christmas – Lauren’s Shortbread

Although one of the great things about Christmas is having long standing family rituals and traditions, it's also wonderful to gain new traditions and family. There is nothing like sharing the love at Christmas. :) This Christmas, my brother's wonderful fiancée, Lauren, was kind enough to share one of the recipes that has been a…

My brother's girlfriend, Lauren, has been going to school down in the States for the past four years. She is now back in Edmonton and we all couldn't be happier to have, the now, Dr. Lauren, home! To celebrate Lauren's homecoming, Nick and I decided to throw her a surprise welcome home party. Surprise parties…

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know I sure I did! This Christmas was full of good food and family. My family spent Christmas Eve with some of Lauren's family, which was a lot of fun. And the evening was made even better, because we got to enjoy food straight from…

Crab Cakes

I love crab cakes. Like, I really love crab cakes. I don't know why, but they are probably one of my favourite things to eat. Some of the best crab cakes I have ever had were at Mama's Fish House in Maui, but I would love to go somewhere on the East coast of the US (Maryland,…

12 Posts of Christmas – Nick’s Eggnog Martini

My brother, Nick, is a really good cook. He's pretty comfortable in the kitchen and doesn't seem to have any qualms about trying new recipes. When I asked if he would share a recipe for my 12 Posts of Christmas, we both thought maybe a drink recipe would be fun. He sent over this Eggnog…

Melon Patch

I am on my way to being caught up on the champagne cocktails. It's August now (where did the summer go?) and I'm halfway through all the cocktails! I think all of them have been pretty good, however there have definitely been some stand-outs. I think my favourite so far is the Sweet Tart. This…

Passion Fruit Spritz

Well, I guess today is a good day to do another Champagne Cocktail post because.... it's my birthday! For some reason 25 seems like a really big deal to me. I'm not sure if it is because 25 is a quarter century, it's halfway to 50, it's only 5 years until 30 or because at…

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

If I had to pick a favourite cookie recipe, without a doubt, this is it. My mom has been making these cookies for my family for as long as I can remember and this very well might be the first cookie recipe I ever baked. I absolutely love these cookies and they are my go-to recipe when…

Tuscan Kale Salad

Kale is one of those foods that I know is very good for me, but I just haven't found many preparations that I have particularly enjoyed. I don't know that I have ever tasted a kale chip and said "wow, this is so delicious" and even kale in smoothies doesn't seem to work that well…

Cute Caprese Salad

A couple of weeks ago I went to Massimo's, the new restaurant beside the Italian Centre Shop on 51st ave, for a work lunch. A few of us split the Caprese salad to start and it was so fresh and delicious! It inspired me to make my own version of it when I was out…
