I used to think that making great food required a lot of brain power, research and long lists of ingredients. And although I am not saying all these things can’t amount to a good recipe, Continue reading “Coconut Dusted Cod with Heirloom Tomato Sauce”
Well hello dear readers, it’s been a while hasn’t it?….For those of you who wonder where the heck I’ve been and why I haven’t been posting, my most sincere apologies. Continue reading “Cedar Plank Salmon”
Oh fish tacos, how I love you guys. I don’t have a massive story to tell about these, actually I may not have a story at all. I made the mayo, made the slaw, ate half of the slaw before dinner, made pico de gallo, munched on that too, and by the time we sat down for dinner, I was full. This happens a lot. Especially when I spend a while prepping. But I ate my tacos anyways, oh yes!
Some days I just don’t know what to eat anymore. We’ve all been there. You open the fridge, and basically stand there for a few minutes, hoping that something amazing will magically appear right in front of you. When that happens to me I know it’s time for a new recipe.

It’s spring time everybody! How freaking exciting is that?! I love season changes. Except for winter. I could definitely live without winter. But spring means no more snow, it means a lot more fresh local produce, means summer is coming and salads are on the menu again! Not that you can’t eat them in the winter but I think you know what I mean. Continue reading “Vietnamese Chopped Salad”
I’ve had my eye on this breakfast idea for a while. Although I had never tasted this before making it myself, I had heard of it and thought it sounded delicious. I recently ended up in an Israeli ran restaurant called Greengos in Guatemala, and I saw the word ‘Shakshuka’ on the menu and actually had no idea what it was.
Have you ever had the Creole Chicken at Cactus Club? Best chicken I’ve ever had, by far. As soon as I tasted it for the first time, I knew I would be on a quest to find the recipe or at least something similar. Well, I couldn’t get my hands on Chef Fernie’s original recipe, but this comes pretty darn close! It is just so freaking juicy and full of flavours it will literally blow your mind.
