Spiced apple chutney

This chutney is just the right amount of sweet and spicy and can be stored in a refrigerator for up to 3 months. One of the very best things I like to do is make large batches of this chutney in the winter and store it for the summer, when guests we have over for…

The best chili!

Everyone has a chili recipe they swear by. Everyone has a chili recipe they insist is the best. But this recipe right here? I insist is the absolute best! But first, let me take you through what qualifies as the best chili in my books. I dream of a bowl of hot and spicy chili…

Chicken Garlic Pizza

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is one of the very first desserts I ever made. I remember growing up and gathering around the table at thanksgiving. I’d get through dinner in a hurry, only because I knew what was waiting for me at the end of the meal: mom’s pumpkin pie. I always got the first slice and…

Butterscotch Apple Crisp

Give me apple anything and I’m one happy camper. Particularly, this delicious and decadent butterscotch apple crisp. Mmm-mmm. This dessert is love in a bowl. That’s the best way to describe it.

Baked Dijon Chicken Breasts with a Twist

There’s never any end to what you can do with chicken breasts. You can stuff them, roast them, bake them, or add them to a stir-fry or soup. Whichever way you make them, there’s hardly any going wrong with them. Personally, I always have a couple of chicken breasts handy for when I want to…

Roasted Leg of Lamb with Rosemary Potatoes

Today I’m going to show you one of my favourite go-to recipes for when I’m entertaining guests.

This leg of lamb is just bursting with flavours and has very little…

Charred Corn, Tomato and Avocado Salad

Deliciously charred corn, creamy bites of avocado, a burst of tomatoes and salty bits of mozzarella come together in this fresh spring salad, drizzled in a light cilantro-fresh lime dressing.

Hot Buffalo Wings

Oooh baby, it’s cold outside. And that can only mean one thing- comfort food, warm socks and movie marathons. Ah winters, how I’ve missed you. That beautiful nip in the air, the crisp, cool breeze. Bliss! Not only is this my favourite season of the year, but it’s also the perfect time to dish up…
