Chicken & Lychee Green Curry

I learned a few very important things while in Thailand last year, 1) I absolutely love green curry and 2) contrary to popular belief, it’s an incredibly simple dish to prepare. Following these exciting discoveries, green curry has now become a permanent fixture on my weekday dinner rotation. This dish takes the basic green curry…

Dried Cherry & Macadamia Cookies

Developing cookie recipes is always a struggle for me. Chocolate is the primary ingredient in 99% of my favourite cookies, so coming up with delicious variations that don’t leave the chocoholic in me feeling deprived is a pretty big challenge. I figured it was finally time for a change after making over 15 batches of…

Roasted Pepper Sauce

All of the pasta sauce recipes I currently have on rotation take between 2 and 4 hours to make. They are hearty and full of delicious slow cooked meat, but unless I have a container frozen in the freezer, it’s not a meal I can quickly throw together for a midweek dinner. This pasta sauce…

This salad contains two things I am currently addicted to, cauliflower couscous and Asian salad dressing. Combine these two ingredients in one dish and you have a healthy and very addicting salad that I can’t stop eating (seriously, 6 lunches in the past week!). Look at how gorgeous this salad is! I absolutely love the…

I have been pining for a waffle maker for quite a while now. Unfortunately due to the size of our tiny flat, I have to be very selective with kitchen gadgets (going completely against my hoarding instincts) and a waffle maker just doesn’t make the cut. That hasn’t stopped me from accumulating a long list…

I love when a meal which you expect to be like every other, becomes a memorable experience your thoughts linger on for years to come. It can be something as simple as a smell, a dish or the décor that just sticks with you. I had an experience like this at a tiny hole in…

Cherry & Tahini Energy Balls

One of my closest friends who has saved me from many a recipe rut, recently mentioned that her mom made an energy ball with tahini. I am a big fan of tahini and the flavour combination of tahini, dried fruits and nuts sounded too good to pass up. I’ll admit that there was a moment…

Thai Beef Salad

This recipe is inspired by the two weeks SA and I recently spent in Cambodia and Thailand. It was one of the best trips we have been on to date (which has included over 20 countries). Everything was perfect. Beautiful beaches, amazing hotels, kind people, incredible sites and the food….oh the food. I had heard…

Roasted Red Pepper Dip

I have developed quite an addiction to dips, rarely going a day without eating some with veggies, crackers or just by the spoonful. Even in my pre diet restrictions days I preferred to make dips from scratch rather than go the store bought route. I am always amazed by the ingredient list of hummus and…

Cranberry, Orange and Pecan Muffins

Cranberries are a great fruit to stock up on during the few short weeks between late October and mid December when they are available fresh in stores. I buy bags of cranberries and store them in the freezer to use throughout the year in a variety of dishes. I have always found cranberries to be…
