Ruthie Mae’s Superhero Smoothie

  [This post is sponsored by Agropur! I used their products to create a healthy, toddler-friendly smoothie and was compensated in return. Regardless, I only work with brands I trust and buy myself.] If you’re a parent, you know there are plenty of things to worry about (like, all the time). From meeting developmental goals and […]

Toasted Almond Cream Scones with Lavender Honey Butter

  This post is sponsored by OneRoot Honey and I received compensation in some form in exchange for this post. That said, I only work with companies whose products I trust and would use myself. If you’re one of the millions who often look to honey as a healthier sugar alternative, you might be surprised […]

Thai Basil Mushrooms with Jasmine Rice

We love Thai Basil Beef (Pad Gra Prow) in our house but sometimes we can’t justify the price of quality beef. When that happens, we reach for meaty, comforting mushrooms instead. They offer the same savory flavour that beef does but because they absorb the flavour of whatever you’re cooking them with, they tend to […]

Smokey Espresso Rubbed Striploin Roast with Chimichurri Sauce

Does your family celebrate the holidays with turkey in some form? There’s definitely no shortage of it from Thanksgiving to Christmas in our celebrations and the past few years I’ve found myself growing tired of the classic holiday bird. This year, to combat the inevitable turkey fatigue, I decided to try adding a truly unforgettable […]

Charcuterie & Pickle Skewers + Apple Shallot & Apricot Chutney

The Holiday snacking table is one of my very favourite spots to hang out. It’s where the action happens – the good conversation, the sparkly cocktails and of course, the food.  I can spot a charcuterie or cheese board from a mile away – it draws me in like a laser beam. When all else […]

Homemade Orechiette with Wild Mushrooms, Sage & Pancetta

Nothing says cozy like a bowl full of pasta. And if that pasta happens to be homemade… all the better! And if it’s Homemade Orechiette with Wild Mushrooms & Pancetta then things about to get real cozy, real fast. We have been working on some recipes to share with family over the holidays and this one is at the top […]

Za’atar Grissini with Warm Harissa Tomato Sauce

Pizza night is a fairly regular thing around here. It’s quick to make if you plan properly and can be made with literally anything we have in the kitchen and be guaranteed to be delicious. From a pie topped with sauteed greens and a few fried eggs to a slice with hot peppers and pineapple (a personal […]

If you’ve ever read the blog Smitten Kitchen, you’re familiar with Deb Perelman’s particular style of effortless but soul-satisfying recipes, and they don’t come without a healthy dose of humour either. If you haven’t read it, I urge you to come out from whatever rock you’ve been living under and get with the program, man. Over […]

Honey-Thyme Roasted Pear Crostini with Borettane Onions + Brie

I am a big fan of contrasting flavours, finding that perfect balance between salty and sweet, vinegar and salt, fat and acid. When you bite into somthing that hits that harmony, all the tastes aligned, it’s heaven. If something is just sweet, I generally decline. But if it’s sweet with some acid or salt, I’m definitely going […]

Caramelized Onion Dip

Since having our daughter, we spend  a whole lot more time at home. Friends and family, gratiously so, almost exclusively come to us and the days of “hmmm…let’s just go out to eat and see a movie” are not as simple as they used to be. We’re lucky that we love to host and luckier […]
