Meatloaf is a staple in a lot of families and a great way to stretch bucks with simple ingredients.
I got my hands on a nice bag of frozen prawns and decided to pre-marinate them in teriyaki sauce so that they can simply be removed from the freezer at a moment’s notice, sit in[…]
Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni is a super simple easy winner at our house.
A French Onion Soup recipe, part of #FilltheFreezerDay.

Like a richer, buttery-er, heftier version of a pizzelle, lukkens are a traditional Belgian waffle cookie usually made on a lukken press or lukken iron (Lukijyer).
This soup comes to me by way of Miss N, the nanny we had working for us two summers ago. She is from the Ukraine or maybe Russia, I’m not totally sure as she said[…]
How was your Christmas, friends? We ate a giant smoked turkey with barley stuffing, maple roasted acorn squash, mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry blueberry pecan orange sauce, and shredded brussel sprouts with bacon and pine nuts.[…]

This salad is fresh and unassuming and is easy to adapt to bigger or smaller groups. It has a nice, warm sesame flavour and lots of great textures, and is dairy free. It’s a great[…]
Cilantro is a love it or hate it kind of fresh herb. I personally adore it. It’s common in a lot of Thai cooking, and it’s the leaves from the coriander plant. This coming growing season,[…]
My brother doesn’t like eggs and won’t eat them scrambled or fried or in an omelette. He makes exceptions for French toast (which both he and I eat with salt and pepper and none of[…]
