CHIMICHURRI CHICKEN

CHIMICHURRI CHICKEN

  A few years ago I went on a South American adventure with my cousin Danielle. Our first stop was Buenos Aires. We drank a bottle of Malbec every night with dinner, and dinner was always grilled meats with sides of veggies. I really loved […]

CROUTON SALAD WITH ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

CROUTON SALAD WITH ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

  This is the salad I made to accompany the Citrus Herb Chicken for my friend’s birthday dinner. It’s light but filling and was a great side for this summer meal. Croutons: 1/2 a loaf of rosemary bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes Olive oil, for […]

ROSEMARY PARMESAN HERB MUFFINS

ROSEMARY PARMESAN HERB MUFFINS

  I’ve been testing low-carb recipes lately. If you’re someone who wants to do a low-carb diet but really misses having something like bread with your meals, then these muffins are for you. What I love most about them is how many things you can […]

MEATBALLS STUFFED WITH MOZZARELLA

MEATBALLS STUFFED WITH MOZZARELLA

  This is a great appetizer for the holidays. It takes a little work to make, but the end result is totally worth it. These can be made in advance so the day you’re entertaining you can warm them up and concentrate on other things. […]

ROASTED RED PEPPERS & GOAT CHEESE SALAD WITH BASIL DRESSING

ROASTED RED PEPPERS & GOAT CHEESE SALAD WITH BASIL DRESSING

CHARRED BROCCOLI KIMCHI SALAD

CHARRED BROCCOLI KIMCHI SALAD

  When it comes to salads I only like them made fresh. Having a prepacked salad for lunch doesn’t work for me. I’m always trying to find different ways to get more veggies into my lunches. I want something that carries well, can be eaten […]

FIGS WRAPPED IN PROSCIUTTO

FIGS WRAPPED IN PROSCIUTTO

  These little jewels of flavour were absolutely delicious. The figs are soft and sweet, wrapped in crispy, salty, prosciutto. When you bite into them, it’s almost like candy. The figs get caramelized in the oven and the prosciutto crisps up. The honey and the […]

CHEESY CHIVE BISCUITS

CHEESY CHIVE BISCUITS

  These are similar to my other biscuit recipes but I wanted mini ones that were cheesy. They’re not red lobster biscuits, but are pretty close. They’re also low carb and are the perfect compliment to a soup or stew. They’re also perfect on there […]
