This is the most adaptable fresh fruit cake recipe ever. I’m calling it compost cake, because it is the most delicious last stop for random fruit you have lying around, when you just don’t have the heart to chuck it in the compost.Read More
Mac and cheese is the ultimate comfort food, and butternut squash is your ticket to an easier and arguably better mac and cheese than the original milk-based one.

The smashed cucumber salad is a traditional Szechuan thing, but I’m not claiming that this particular version is traditional. It’s just… good.
A really cool flavour-unlocking thing happens when you smash cucumbers. Basically you’re busting up all the little flavour cells and releasing their cucumbery-ness to the world. It’s great.
There's something about zucchini boats that just kinda ticks every box for me. They're so satisfying, while also being pretty easy on the ol' waistline. That is if you resist dumping a whole block of cheese on top. These stuffed zucchini boats are loaded with a turkey taco inspired mixture of black beans and corn, and they only take about 20 minutes to make. Top them with a variety of fresh toppings and you’ve got a weeknight hit on your hands!
These savoury waffles are a result of me not finding any waffle recipes online that suited my fancy. I’ve made them 3 times with the recipe as it is now, and they are REALLY good and really easy. Loaded with spinach and feta cheese, these waffles are fluffy and melty on the inside and crispy and salty on the outside. These are good enough to eat on their own, no toppings required. They really are a ten out of ten.Read More
This summer corn and zucchini chowder is a great example of that. It’s quick, it’s easy, and weirdly light for a creamy potato-forward dish. It takes around 30 minutes total and it goes very well with a big tall beer and a garden patio! My favourite way to eat this chowder is to bring the whole darn pot outside and stick it on the table with a stack of bowls, some rustic bread from a local bakery, and a few hungry friends or family members.Read More
This simple noodle recipe is so quick and easy. It’s spicy with gochujang, creamy with cream cheese, vinegary with rice vinegar, and fresh with thinly sliced green onions. It makes a perfect easy dinner for one.
In the middle of summer, which is the time of year it is now as I’m writing this, it’s pretty special to bring something that celebrates the season’s bounty. This grilled zucchini salad is a great way to do that, without breaking the bank and without breaking a sweat. Bonus - you can make it in about 20 minutes.Read More
This tomato coconut soup is the exact thing that I want when I have less than 20 minutes to make dinner. It’s perfect for when I want to feel healthyish AND deeply comforted at the same time. This quick and easy creamy tomato soup only takes about 15 minutes to make. It’s flavourful enough to fulfill the adults, and at the same time it’s not too spicy, so kids love it too.
There’s something very awesome about a pie that is so easy to make and rustic, that it’s almost like a dessert pizza. When the berries and stone fruit are just calling out to you to buy them and make something satisfying out of them, a galette is a really good way to go.Read More
