I am obsessed with this creamy tomato tortellini soup. It hits every spot on a cozy evening at home. It’s also really easy to make, and feeds a decent sized crowd pretty easily. Make this on those nights when you want your food to hug you.Read More
Crispy salmon skin is my favourite. There are lots of close competitors, other fish have great crispy skin too, like mackerel and trout, and actually this method can be used on any of those. Choose the fish you desire, or even better, the freshest one you can get.Read More
Spinach walnut pesto for the win! In the past few weeks, this bright green multi-purpose magic sauce has made its way onto things like roast chicken, (dry brined of course) sweet potatoes, french lentils, salads, a delicious pan roast of cubed paneer, fennel and peppers, and an ultimate bagel sandwich that I’ll be talking about in the next post (It’s so good that I need to work up to it).Read More

Tahini is a wonderful pantry staple to have around, but often we only use it for hummus and then we end up with a half-full container of tahini sitting around. So I’m showing you how to use tahini. Here are some recipes with tahini as alternatives to hummus. We’re making 3 recipes for dressing and dips.

These custard tartlets are the perfect little treats to bring to a party, or to entertain guests at home. Because they’re not too sweet, so they would be welcome on any table alongside cocktail snacks or desserts.
If you don’t have leftover cranberry sauce to fill them with, you can use any homemade or store bought jam or marmalade instead.Read More
I know. Kale Caesar Salad? What is this, 2015? Well, as far as ‘good uses for kale’ goes, this happens to be one of the applications I totally endorse.
