Perfect Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hiiiii friends! It’s me, your resident when-fall-actually-seems-like-early-winter lover*! It has been cold here in Edmonton (as in temperatures have been hanging out in and around zero degrees celsius pretty consistently lately), and as such, the perfect excuse to bake. * also known as your resident rage-baker because have you SEEN THE  NEWS THIS WEEK AND BASICALLY EVERY…

Sage & Garlic “Brown Butter” Pasta w/Roasted Cauliflower

It’s a rainy summer Saturday, and I’m happy to say I’ve spent the better part of the evening making pasta & listening to podcasts. I’ve only recently discovered Food Psych and really enjoyed the episode I listened today on “Emotional Eating and Diet Culture”. I definitely recommend listening if you’re interested in the psychology of…

Sunday Baking: Cozy Fall Apple Cider Donuts

Fall is generally my favourite time of year. However, this past October was quite difficult for a myriad of reasons, which meant I needed to take some time away from my blog, and even step away from the kitchen (baking gig) a few times to deal with a few things. However, the dust is starting…

(Probably Inauthentic) Panang Curry

Hi friends! Over the weekend, my mum was visiting me here in Edmonton, and we stopped at a fantastic little Thai spot (Numchok Wilai if you’re interested- check out their vegetarian lunch menu especially, what a great deal!) for dinner. It will probably be one of my go to spots after such delicious noms, I…

Falafel as Frik

Holla folks. After a few weeks of barely having time to cook for myself ever, I finally picked a gloomy-ish day to stay in and spend the better half of the afternoon in my kitchen at home. After a brief disaster wherein I broke a jar of coconut oil then stepped on the glass like…

Adventures in London Fog Meringues aka. *~AQUA WTFABA?!*~

If there is anything I resent about GETTING MY PROTEIN more than anything in the world, it is totally the gross chickpea water that comes out of a can all vile and thick, and smells disgusting, and I seriously rinse those things for like 15 minutes straight in a colander and peel off the skins…

Vegan Ginger “Beef”

Weirdly enough, we are kind of spoiled here in Alberta with vegan western-ized Chinese food. Even while in Vancouver last week with a ton of vegan options available to me, I still found myself pining for all of my favourites. One of my favourite places growing up in our small town happened to double as a Chinese…

Roasted Vegetable Skillet Lasagna! PASTA PUNX PREVAIL!

My obsession with my cast iron skillets continues! After a long week, I decided I would like to spend my Saturday evening in, alone, eating pasta. As one does. I had half a box of lasagna noodles in the back of the pantry just waiting to be enjoyed, but I haven’t had the patience lately for…

Things I Love Thursday: C.R.E.A.M (Chocolate Rules Everything Around Me)

Oh hiiiii pals! It’s time for another THINGS I LOVE THURSDAY. I have sung high praises about chocolate for TILT before, but this is a super special one. My friends over at Cococo Chocolatiers, owners of Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut® recently contacted me, and hooked me up with some awesome treats. My little parcel of chocolate joy…
