Cheesy Cauliflower Bites

I have a love/hate relationship with cauliflower. It’s not my favourite vegetable to eat on its own.  When I bite into them my palette’s reaction is nothing short of ‘meh’. Growing up, cauliflower was only allowed to be made one way, boiled then sautéed with potatoes. It’s good, don’t get me wrong, but I end […]

Banana Oat Muffins

The first week of school has come to an end and being home it’s been really slow here at home.  If I were at work, I’d be in bed by 8 up by 6 and always on the go. With Emilia around I need to start thinking about snacks I can prep ahead of time, […]

Baked Beaver Tails

As I devour my maple flavoured marshmallows from last night’s s’mores(I definitely need to head to the gym after this weekend), I think about how all these Canadian inspired dishes I’ve been making are so rich and high in fat. There’s a reason for it all, it’s because of our long cold winters we have […]

Nutella Nanaimo Bars

Today’s dish is a decadent one and a Canadian original. I am talking about the infamous Nanaimo bars that originated in Nanaimo, BC. Dating back in the 1950’s, this ultra rich dessert has evolved into a variety of variations, making that much more yummy. It starts off with a crumbly wafer bottom, followed by a […]
