Your Weekday Chicken & Broccoli Dish

It’s no surprise that chicken and broccoli are two of my favourite foods. In fact, I’d be shocked if I didn’t at least eat one of the two every couple of days. What’s not to like? You get protein and fiber without even trying. In this “normal” dish, I thought why not throw together something…

Irish Brownies

Admittedly, the last couple weeks have been some of the more busy in my most recent memory. School and extracurricular activities have reached a boiling point, and I have not been nearly as disciplined enough in my healthy eating and exercise routines. Yeah…. I need to fix that. Far too often, I’ve been turning to…

Lemon Meringue Pie (Yum)

If there’s one thing I adore doing – it’s baking for a friend. I think being able to present someone with a creation of sugar and confection that you made with your own bare hands is potentially the best thing in the world. I slaved over this, it says. I want you to eat the…

Stuffed Peppers

Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. If the recipe originally called for ground turkey and all you have is ground beef – that will have to do. If you realise you don’t have half of the ingredients that you need: then that suffice. I’ve been trying to take this strategy out of…

Egged-out Sweet Potatoes

What people often forget about recipes from the internet is that they have the high potential to go “wrong.” Granted, they usually don’t go as wrong as this one recipe did. They certainly won’t look Pinterest official – but there’s nothing wrong with a recipe looking “worn in.” These are things I tell myself at…

Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

Anything sweet at all is better than nothing: says your resident sugar addict. Unfortunately we cannot all eat chocolate every night for dinner, otherwise I would be more than happy to. The issue with that is… well, well there’s really no problem at all with that (in my opinion). But every once in awhile, it…

Toasted Coconut Pumpkin Oatmeal Porridge

If there’s one thing I know for sure about oatmeal, it’s that it carries with it high standards. We’ve all tasted our fair share of boring and flavourless brands of Quaker oats and brown sugar: so when a blog tells me that I’m going to want to eat this all the time, I’m skeptical. But…

Norwegian Porridge

If there’s a way of describing how incredibly delicious and satisfying Norwegian porridge is in one word, I would choose to use that word here. In the process of making the yummy split pea soup from last week, I was tempted (oh so tempted) to eat something thick and warm. Cue porridge. Porridge is incredible….

Danish Split Pea Soup

First things first: I adore soup. I love cold winter nights slurping up delicious broths that are chock full of healthy nutrients, I love spoons, I love heat: it’s just a hole in one for me all of the time. Add in the hygge craze, and I’ve been intrigued about what exactly one eats when…

Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Turkey and Brownies

Sometimes, I’m social and do dinner with friends. Surprise. Shock. Awe. I know! Me?! Social and doing things outside of my comfort zone on occasion. It’s enough to make anyone have a minor heart attack. Though then again, this “dinner” was with one friend, and we sat around drinking wine while I enjoyed myself cooking……

Black Bean, Corn and Chicken Quesadillas

When it comes to making dinner for friends, I tend to opt for the easier dishes. Much as I love coming up with strange and complex recipes to worry my friends with (or to burn their oven), the basic recipes are sometimes the best. That’s why last week when I wanted to see my close…

Lies of “Single Serving Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies”

So let’s clarify things before I explain why single serving oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are a lie. When you’re sitting alone in your apartment, it’s 11pm and you’re having a slight craving for something sweet: it only makes sense that you’d want to google the mysterious single serving recipes that you see online. My original…
