LEMON SODA

LEMON SODA

I was a big soda drinker a few years back. I sadly admit I was drinking at least one diet soda a day. Back then, I thought if it were calorie-free or sugar-free then it was fine. I now know better and if I’m going […]

KALE CHICKPEA SALAD

KALE CHICKPEA SALAD

There is a restaurant in Toronto called GUSTO 101. They have this kale salad that is absolutely amazing. It’s one of their signature dishes. Their Cavolo Nero has kale, currants, pine nuts, pecorino, and a lemon vinaigrette. Every time I go there I order it. […]

SRIRACHA DEVILED EGGS WITH CRISPY SERRANO HAM

SRIRACHA DEVILED EGGS WITH CRISPY SERRANO HAM

Deviled eggs are a classic appetizer that never gets old. Especially when there are so many variations to try. I wanted these eggs to be spicy, mixing sriracha with the yolks gives it a nice bite. And with an extra hit of heat from a […]

STRAWBERRY ROSEMARY COCKTAIL

STRAWBERRY ROSEMARY COCKTAIL

I love making summertime cocktails. This year I am obsessed with using sparkling wine and herbs. Strawberries are in season and can be used, but I tend to buy the frozen ones and use them as ice cubes in the drink.
