I’m not sure if I like quiche better for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Quiche is great because you can throw in whatever you have in the fridge! This combination is one of our favourites, but feel free to use what you love….no meat, extra cheese, extra veggies….go nuts!
Enjoy a beer with dinner? How about a beer in your dinner? We made our version of a traditional English “steak and ale pie”, and it turned out really nice! It is a great, filling meal to make during these colder months. Continue reading
Left over risotto? Looking for something different to make for dinner? Try arancini!! It’s easy to make, and you can make it your own by switching up the ingredients you put in the middle. Try mozzarella or your favourite veggies. Yum! Continue reading
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.

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.
Shepherds pie, with a twist! We took a basic shepherds pie and tweaked it a little just to add something different and make it a bit healthier We added sweet potato to the mashed potato, and used ground chicken instead of beef.
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
Quick, easy and awesome! One of the best salads, stuffed into chicken! And the best part is that you don’t have much of a recipe to follow. You can make as much or as little as you need.
This ravioli is light and delicious, and is a great idea for a summer meal. We got an awesome deal on the KitchenAid pasta attachment, and had recently bought a ravioli maker so we really wanted to test them both out.
I decided to try out something I normally don’t make, meatloaf. I generally find meatloaf boring and just overall not that appealing, but since I had all the ingredients, I thought I would try to change it up a bit and make it more interesting. In the end, I created a cross between meatloaf and sheppards pie.
