MEXICAN CORN CHOWDER

You won’t find a lot of soup recipes on here. I don’t love soup enough to eat it when it’s hot outside and as you know, I live where it’s always hot outside. Whenever I go back to Canada in winter though, I am reminded of the comfort of the warmth of a good soup […]

BRIE SPINACH PORTO FARROTTO

I was introduced to farro a few years ago on a trip to Italy. We were staying with our friends who live just outside of Florence (who doesn’t want friend like that!) for a few days and one day for lunch on their gorgeous deck overlooking those Tuscan hills we were served a beautiful array […]

CRUNCHY MESH POTATOES

These are perfection. And I’m not even a potato girl. Perfection. I’ve used the ‘chopstick’ method on potatoes before when I’ve made Hasselback potatoes. (When you see that name am I the only one who thinks of Elizabeth Hasselbeck who was on ‘Survivor’ all those years ago? No? Just me? Okay fine). This is just […]

BREAKFAST tortilla cup

We typically eat different foods at different times of the day. But why should that be so? Who made eggs best to eat at breakfast? I really don’t know but I’m not really arguing either. Don’t get me wrong, we eat eggs all throughout the day. My latest fav is the runny fried egg that […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
