Cold Brew Coffee

i have always loved iced coffee & iced tea. so usually, I brew a cup of coffee, put it over ice…if the coffee isn’t too strong, I will drink it black or sometimes I add milk. Last year I started making Cold Brew Coffee. I don’t know if the craze started before I noticed or…

Dasha’s Cottage Cheese Pie

An old family recipe for a cottage cheese ‘pie’ baked in a square pan…so not really a ‘pie’ but not a square either! This recipe has a cake like bottom, cottage cheese filling & cake like top… slightly sweet but not too much sugar…baked to a golden brown. But it isn’t really a cake either!…

Vegetarian Burgers with Mushrooms & Black Beans

I saw this recipe on Bon Appetit, it is one of their BA’s Best. There are a lot of ingredients in this recipe & I had most of them at home. I did have to substitute some things. Full of vegetables & black beans, this burger is delicious & even a die-hard meat-eater would like…

Vanilla Sprinkle Cake

I have always loved sprinkles.. you know what I am talking about! Those colourful crunchy little, sweet, perfectly straight, all the same size ice cream sprinkles?

Brussel Sprout & Kale Slaw

Brussel Sprouts are not my favourite vegetable by any means. Sometimes if they are roasted & seasoned with maple syrup….haha….I can eat them! But I do like them raw in this salad. Paired with Kale, this is so healthy & fresh.

Homemade Almond Butter

Cheese &Crumb Cake by Carine Goren

Beef Meatballs in Tomato Sauce with Spinach

Meatballs are pretty versatile in terms of flavouring them! I love Sweet & Sour meatballs, here is a link to a post with a recipe for that…. & I have a really good recipe for pineapple meatballs I will do another time.

I have a craving for Butter Tarts! 

I love butter tarts! I know spring is here & that  these sweet tarts are kind of a winter holiday treat but I don’t know why I can’t make them all year round! So here is the recipe I posted awhile ago. I am going to have mine with a tall glass of unsweetened iced…

Chicken Casserole Topped with Cauliflower

I found a bag of cooked shredded chicken in my freezer from a chicken soup I made recently. Since I love chicken pot pie & shepherds pie, why not combine the two but making it healthier by omitting the pastry shell from the potpie & the potatoes from the shepherds pie? Good idea? I think…
