Crispy Cauliflower Buffalo Wings With Sour Cashew Cream Sauce And The Philips Airfryer XXL

One of my new favourite things to experiment with in the kitchen is the Philips Airfryer. I remember when they first came out in 2010, they were the talk of the town. Deep frying with air? Not oil? It was a mind-blowing concept that really worked. Using their patented Rapid-Air Technology that circulated hot air to create a tornado effect, the Airfryer mimicked deep-frying without the use of oil. It allowed people to fry using 80% less fat* –... Read More >>

Spinach And Feta Gozleme

A quick Spinach and Feta Gozleme is one of the most requested and well received after school snack at our home. Made with my trusty gozleme dough recipe. I grew up in a home where roughly about 30-40 chapatis (or rotis or flatbreads) were rolled and cooked on an open fire everyday. In fact, making chapati dough and rolling them into perfect little thin rounds was one of the first things I learned in my mum's kitchen. I must have been 5 years ... Read More >>

Homemade Gnocchi Puttanesca

I love watching cooking shows that are not contained within the kitchen. Shows that follow the host around a new country or city, while they explore the gorgeous local produce and famous dishes to later re-create in their kitchens.

While I have many favourites on Food Network, I am particularly ex... Read More >>

Zucchini And Sweet Potato Slice

  When my boys were little and eating well (or even eating for that matter) was the farthest things from their minds, friends with older kids would always encourage me to have hope because they had older boys that single-handedly demolished their fridges and pantries every month. I used to smile indulgently wondering  how that could even be possible with my two. And then my first born went through a growth spurt and arrived at the thr... Read More >>

Roasted Cauliflower And Ricotta Grandma Pie

What the heck is a Grandma Pie? I know you are thinking it, because that was my very first thought when I came across a Cauliflower Grandma Pie recipe on Bon Appetit that I HAD to make. So I decided to research. I went to Google. Google told me that a Grandma Pie was a deep dish pizza of sorts from Sicily that was made by stretching dough in an oiled, shallow, rimmed baking tray and dotting it with mozzarella, tomato sauce, garlic and olive. It w... Read More >>

Chocolate Marble And Mayonnaise Celebration Cake With Dark Chocolate Ganache

I made a big mistake yesterday. The first in 11 years of blogging so I am hoping to forgive myself (and hope you do too!) but I am appalled nonetheless. Let me tell you what happened. I posted a spectacular layer cake recipe yesterday that I made for Rish's (younger boy) birthday in January. An amazing chocolate Star Wars cake that I said had mayonnaise in it. It didn't! It had a sticky chocolate cake for the top layer and orange chocolate ch... Read More >>
