Especially when this recipe for Mongolian Chicken is better than any takeout Mongolian Chicken I’ve ever gotten….

Chicken Teriyaki

Sweet and savory sauces have my heart. It’s like when you take that first bite and all the flavours just explode in your mouth with tantalizing deliciousness, hitting all the right spots at the same time. This recipe for chicken teriyaki is just that. A delicious sweet and savory chicken dinner, perfect for large crowds…

Honey mustard chicken breasts

There she goes again with yet another chicken breast recipe. Somebody stop her! People, hear me. I might have a problem. But it’s only a problem if you consider hassle-free, lip-smacking weeknight dinners a problem. I hear nobody complaining! Now this is what I tend to do every Sunday. I prep for the week ahead,…

Courgette and parmesan soup

Nothing soothes the soul better than a steaming bowl of creamy soup on a cold winter night. This soup is one of my favorites. Right up there with a tomato soup and chicken noodle soup. The reason for it is simple, it tastes like a million bucks, all rich and creamy, but is fairly guilt-free….

Thai Fish Cakes with Cucumber Salad

If you were to ask me what I’d like to eat on any given day, “THAI!” would come my very quick, very emphatic response. Kind of like a knee-jerk reaction. As you already know, I adore recipes that pack a punch and this, right here, is one such flavor-filled recipe that has come to be…

Weeknight Chicken Roulade

As you already know, there are a few things in life, I always take for granted. Like chicken breasts. Chicken breasts are my go-to choice for quick and easy weeknight dinners and you’ll always get a delicious meal that required little to no prep. Now, this here, Chicken Roulade? Absolute winner. It doubles as a…

Mini Chilli Beef Pies

I love mini anything. Because mini things mean they can fit into my mouth in one bite and that can only mean one thing: eat everything! These mini chilli beef pies are exactly the kind of perfect party appetisers you came looking for. The recipe calls for store-bought puff pastry and the rest of the…

Chicken tortilla soup

Like all good things in life, there’s only two things I ask for from the soups in my life. That they be packed with flavour (the spicier, the better, if you ask me) and be hearty enough to be a meal in themselves. What’s not to love about soup dinners? What’s not to love about…

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…

Steak Au Poivre

Possibly my most favourite steak recipe in the whole wide world. Because it combines two of my favourite things: steak and a sauce that is so ridiculously delicious, it’s just wrong. Look, I don’t mean to go out on a limb here, but this really is one of the best steak recipes you’ll ever make…

Chicken Garlic Pizza

Friday night, AKA Pizza Night has got to be my favourite night of the year. I mean, I wholeheartedly believe is the best food ever made. If someone asked me what my favourite food in the entire world was, I’d have to say pizza, only because of the million ways in which you can make…

Lemon and Rosemary Pork with Chickpea Salad

I love suppers that look gourmet, sound gourmet, taste gourmet, but come together in under 30 minutes. Can you imagine coming home to meal like this after a long, hard day at work? I don’t know about you, but dinner is the meal I most look forward to on weekdays. The fact that I don’t…

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. There’s nothing more soothing than softly stewed, bubbling apples under a crisp and crunchy oat topping. Served with a generous scoop of vanilla…
