GRILLED CHEESE WITH BRIE AND PASSIONFRUIT JAM

GRILLED CHEESE WITH BRIE AND PASSIONFRUIT JAM

  I made these for my cousin Danielle’s bachelorette party and they were a hit. I got two marriage proposals that night because of them. And people were still talking about them for a week after. When entertaining, taking something simple and making it special […]

CHAI SPICED GRANOLA BARS

CHAI SPICED GRANOLA BARS

  To me, granola bars are the perfect snack. They carry well, are sweet and tasty, and you can make a batch of them and they last for two weeks in the fridge. I always have one in my bag, and I keep a container […]

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. […]

VANILLA ALMOND COOKIES

VANILLA ALMOND COOKIES

  These cookies were a happy mistake. I had made them before with just egg whites and they were hard. This time when I went to separate the egg whites I dropped and whole egg in the bowl and just went with it. The result […]

SPICED WALNUTS

SPICED WALNUTS

  This cafe I used to go to for lunch would make a salad with dried fruit and candied walnuts. They were sweet and spicy, they used curry powder for the spice and sugar. I wanted to try the sweet and spicy mix but without […]

SEED & SPINACH BISCUITS

SEED & SPINACH BISCUITS

  Saturday mornings I meet up with a friend to go swimming. I usually roll out of bed and make my way there picking up a coffee and a bagel on the way. In my attempts to be healthier and lower my carb intake, I […]

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 […]
