Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Yay! Pizza that isn’t loaded with carbs! ( and tastes good too!)
This cauliflower crust pizza is incredibly easy to make, just top with your favourite pizza toppings and enjoy! It’s also great for anyone with a gluten allergy.

I first heard about using cauliflower instead of pizza dough from a colleague who told me that he and his fiance had tried it and thought it was really good. I was a bit skeptical but still wanted to try it out. We followed a recipe that I found online (see below for link) and both agreed that it tasted really good. The only thing to watch out for if you try this out is the crust thickness. It doesn’t stay together like pizza dough, so try not to spread the crust too thin.

Tiramisu Cupcakes

After posting pictures of tiramisu Keith made on Facebook, a friend commented and said I should make that my next cupcake flavor. Instantly we started looking up recipes and coming up with the best way to make these cupcakes taste like tiramisu. We tried one recipe, but thought it could use some tweaking, so after making changes to the recipe, we were pretty happy with the end product.

Juicy Lucy Burgers

What is a Juicy Lucy? Basically it is an inside out cheeseburger, where the cheese is stuffed between the meat patties, that oozes cheesy goodness when you bite into it. We have seen it featured several times on different food network shows, and wanted to give it a try. We actually came across a place near us with a Juicy Lucy on the menu, but they turned out to be dry, flavourless disappointments and we realized if we wanted a good juicy lucy burger, we should just make them ourselves.

Tangled (Rapunzel) Birthday Cake

A while ago, Keith suggested that we make the cake for his nieces 6th birthday party. Once we found out that the theme was going to be “Tangled”, we started planning out different ideas and finally decided on the very popular Tangled Tower. It started off as a small cake….but we quickly realized that we were planning a 2- ft tower and transporting this thing seemed more and more terrifying! Thankfully everything went smoothly and Hailey loved her Tangled cake.
Happy 6th Birthday Hailey! xo Continue reading

BBQ Chicken Wings, Drumsticks and Thighs

BBQ chicken is a classic go-to meal for anyone that likes to BBQ, but with a very simple change in the cooking method I make the best chicken I have ever had from a BBQ.  This will make the chicken very moist and the flavour of whatever marinade you use will really sink in  instead of just coating the outside.  Continue reading

BBQ Pineapple Dessert

Pineapples were on sale so I wanted to pick some up and make a dessert. We had recently made a Pineapple Upside Down Cake, so I was looking for something different to try. The grilled pineapple we used for the Hawaiian Pizza was really juicy and delicious, so I decided to go back to the BBQ. I came up with a nice, sweet dessert that pairs nicely with ice cream or is great by itself.  Continue reading
