ONLINE COOKING CLASSES

What a year of change 2020 has been. Jobs changed, social interaction changed, it seems everything has changed. However, just because we are living in a time where social distancing has become the norm, doesn’t mean we can’t brush up on a valuable skill that will save money and help us meet new friends or […]

FENNEL FRONDS PESTO ORECHIETTE

Who doesn’t love pesto. The colour. The versatility. The fact that it gives me an excuse to have more pasta for dinner. Mostly, I love that it makes fantastic use of things that might otherwise get tossed out. For example, the other day I went to get some fennel for one of my other recipes. […]

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE ALMOND ICE-CREAM

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This is my new favorite ice-cream flavour. I renounce all previous claims stating otherwise. I’m not much of a sweets gal, but this hits all the right spots. Helping me get through those bad days. Those days when we wonder if the pandemic is over. Those […]

roasted strawberry buttermilk ice-cream

When my good friend in Edmonton suggested this flavour, I was anxious to try it. I had never roasted strawberries before, only vegetables. I just couldn’t seem to process how they would turn out. But I knew I had to try. It was super simple, just tossed the beautiful berries in a little sugar and […]

Bananas foster ice-cream

Making a new ice-cream flavour every week is fun. It’s probably the only area I really enjoy inventing. And the options are endless! Plus, it’s forcing me to work on my ice-cream photography. Not fun, but hopefully eventually helpful in producing mouth-watering pictures. This scoop may not look any different than most regular ice-creams, but […]

mixed berry cheesecake ice cream

So…. funny story. I made Rocky Road ice-cream the other day. I found about a cup of Canadian mini-marshmallows in my fridge and knew I had to make one of my favorite flavours of ice-cream to put them to good use. Marshmallows here in Mexico aren’t of the greatest quality. I haven’t seen a bag […]

Chicken & wine

Our noses have a way of sniffing out nostalgia. Smell goes into the emotional parts of the brain and the memory parts, whereas words go into thinking parts of the brain. This could explain why memories sparked by smell feel nostalgic and emotional. I often say that we didn’t have a lot of food traditions […]

Chicken zucchini poppers with creamy garlic dip

This is the first recipe I ever published on this blog. I went to edit it the other day and somehow got lost in a foreign and scary editing world from which I could not return. The post had to be trashed and I had to start all over again. So here we go. A […]

Bacon & Cheese Waffles

I love the sitcom Parks & Rec. I love the character Leslie Knope. Probably the only thing I don’t get about her is her obsession for waffles. Nor anybody else’s obsession with waffles, frankly. The only meal of the day I do not prefer carbs at is breakfast. I would much rather have eggs, bacon, […]

Chipotle Garlic Potatoes

Last weekend, my husband was smoking a huge pork butt on the smoker. Before the quarantine, he would use the smoker or barbecue at least once or twice a month, but now, with more free time on his hands, we get treated to some delicious meat a little more often.  In between the hours he […]
