I'll be spending some time in the kitchen this weekend working on testing some new recipes. I've got a few great ideas that I'm looking forward to testing out!
I'm hoping to have all 3 recipes tested and rewritten by the end of the weekend. Stay tuned for updates as well as next week's menu and a recap of the week's posts!
Happy Friday y'all!
I love ravioli. They're like, little pillows of deliciousness filled with cheese. I have yet to master the art of pasta making at home although it is something I'm gradually moving towards. In the meantime, fresh, store bought ravioli will suffice.
Here's a brand I enjoy and recommend - http://happyveggie.weebly.com/products--facts/feature-olivieri-pasta
I've been so bloody busy working I forgot to celebrate my 2nd anniversary! I can hardly believe it's been over 2 years since I began the blog and I definitely couldn't have done it without the lot of you. My blog has come so far in 2 short years and I am so excited to see what years to come have to offer.
Thank you all so very much for visiting, commenting, and following on twitter / facebook. I truly appreciate all of the support and want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support! Three cheers to two years and many more to come!
There's something so enticing about simplicity. In this day and age, it's so easy to overcomplicate things that we forget how simple and delicious food can really be.
I spotted this recipe online and I was enticed by how wonderfully simple it was. Featuring only two ingredients allows both of them to be the star flavours in the dish. I've got tender mini potatoes, fresh peas, and a delicious cream sauce to accompany them and it's simple as that. The cream sauce is rich and wonderful and drapes the potatoes and peas so very well. It's a fabulous side dish that is as easy as it is tasty!
Head on over to the RECIPES tab and get your hands on this super simple and super satisfying recipe!
I stumbled across this article this morning and felt like I should share it with all of you. The Holidays are notorious for being bad for our waistlines and this is because we let go of our inhibitions and enjoy all of the sweet treats layed out before us. Growing up. my mother spent weeks leading up to Christmas preparing baked goods, cookies, tarts, and chocolatey treats for us to dig in to. Harmless as they may seem, the culmination of goodies is definitely not good for our health!
What items found themselves on the list?
I think the moral of the story this Holiday season is to be mindful of how much of the good stuff you consume. I am a firm believer of enjoying naughty things in moderation and you can bet your arse I'll be having a slice of cheesecake or two this holiday, but it's important to make a conscious effort to omit some of the sugary treats associated with this time of year. Avoiding a lot of these treats will definitely help your waistline over the holidays and leave more room for that fabulous Christmas dinner!
Make sure to follow the link at the top of the page to find out exactly what was on the list of things to avoid this season!
I can't lie and say this idea just "came to me", I've thought about a potato stuffed with macaroni and cheese since the day I was born. The concept really gave me such a great feeling, two comfort foods kind of intertwined in to one seriously fabulous appetizer.
Scratch made mac is so, so easy and a million times better than anything you'll find in a box. This creamy mac recipe is rich, melty, and cheesy, all of which contribute to its amazingness. Now, stuff that luxurious mac inside a hollowed out, crispy potato skin and you've got magic!
Cream soups are some of my favourite soups. I love how simple they are and how the focus is generally on one vegetable / flavour but the soup is always so delicious.
My creamy cauliflower soup is rich, smooth, and delicious. A simple garnish of shredded cheddar cheese and sliced green onions is all this soup needs to make every bite fabulous. It's a wonderful dish to enjoy for lunch or dinner so grab a spoon and start eating!
I've finally got some time to start working on the final details of my sauces. Tonight I'll be working on figuring out pricing, batch size, and, taste. I'll be preparing a big ol' batch of sauce tonight and making sure I've got the flavours just right for sale. I'll also be determining the size of jar, jars per batch, and total cost of one batch of sauce. I am so excited to get things going and look forward to sharing updates on my sauce's progress!
