Baked Sockeye Salmon with Cucumber, Corn, + Basil Salad

It’s the first sunny day in what feels like F O R E V E R, and sunny weather always makes me want either tacos or a salad. I decided early this morning that I would make a salad for lunch and it was all I could think about until I got home! This salad…

Kitchen Sink Pizza

Sometimes it seems like you have nothing in your kitchen, despite doing a big grocery shop only a few days ago. Today was one of those days. However, knowing I had a bit of pizza dough in the freezer, I have a belief that just about anything can go on a pizza, and sometimes the…

Chipotle Cauliflower Tacos + Chipotle Yoghurt

Taco Tuesday is always a good idea, as is Meatless Monday. Do both with this recipe! It’s easy, versatile, and fast – everything a taco should be. This can also be easily made vegan with some substitutions. I found a cauliflower at my local Independent grocery store that was bigger than my head (and my…

Tortellini Soup with Mushrooms + Kale

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday filled with turkey, laughter, family, friends, and too much booze. I know I did! Coming home today, I knew I needed a comforting and hearty soup, and this twist on an Italian classic was the result. It’s earthy, savoury, and perfect for a Boxing Day when it’s…

Winter Pizza – Pesto +Butternut Squash

A long time ago, I promised seasonal pizza recipes. And while I make pizzas all the time, I don’t usually post them. Today, that changes! Here is the first of what I’m sure will be many seasonal pizzas. I always use Mom’s Pizza Dough, and while the dough is resting, prep my other ingredients. Making pizza is…

Rigatoni + Sausage + Chilies

I have a tendency to base recipes around the weather – stews and hearty root vegetables in the winter; spice and bright colours for the summer. For me, this pasta recipe is one of those summery recipes, likely because of the charred corn and cilantro. Today’s sunny weather combined with my school term ending (!!!),…

Grilled Chicken + Charred Corn Salsa

Today was an awesome day. The weather in Vancouver right now is amazing – it really feels like spring has arrived! Eric got off school early, so we rented bikes from nearby Cycle City Tours (best bikes, best services, and the nicest guys), biked through the city and then went around the sea wall. It was the…

Cauliflower Steak + Romesco Sauce

I love steak, and I love cauliflower. When I was in Squamish last week with my family I found these ENORMOUS cauliflowers for less than $3! It was a steal so I picked one up. Since then, it was only a matter of time until I made cauliflower steaks. I originally thought about doing a…

Mom’s Pizza Dough

I’ve always been intimidated by the thought of making my own bread and dough, and my mom was too for a long time. It wasn’t until a trip to London and Berlin over the holidays in 2014/15, where one of our old family friends, Lea, showed us how her family does it. Lea is German-Italian,…
