Well, hello world. Long time no write. 

Long time no see indeed. Since I last blogged, I have  – moved house – started a new role at work – had a complete overhaul of my schedule  – helped my fiancé move – had my computer die – had something happening every weekend – had a death in the family – got concussed […]

No Bake 2 Minute Honey Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bark

Every once in a while I get hit by a desire to have sweets. It doesn’t happen often but when it does, it hits hard. I picked up a small tub of honey Greek yogurt a few weeks ago, seeing that it was on sale at an unbelievable price for Greek yogurt. Then, a few days ago, […]

Vegetarian Noodle Salads

Summer has hit and with it veggies in all the colours of the rainbow. In a desire to have lighter fare (both on the body and budget), here are three noodle salads to concoct: yakisoba, vermicelli, and spaghetti squash. The first one is my fav. A spin on the yakisoba noodle dish, this one uses […]

First Attempt at Rice Paper Spring Rolls

They’re clear as they haven’t been baked or deep fried (I simply took rice paper sheets and rehydrated them in a big bowl of hot water for a few seconds before adding filling).

Tonight’s (Extra) Creamy Cream Cheese Vegetarian Linguine

Ben requested a light meal tonight as his train was late and had to pick up something while waiting to stave off dinner pangs. So I felt quite free to experiment with a vegetarian pasta dish, finishing off leftover tomato sauce and half a bell pepper. The following recipe was inspired by ‘The Photo Vegetarian […]

Eggs and Shrimp (& Vegetarian Quinoa Chili – Adapted Recipe for 1.5 qt slow cooker)

This is an old meal from a couple of weeks ago. Shrimp and scrambled egg stir fry is a comfort food and one of my favourite dishes in the world. All it takes are eggs (I used 4 eggs for two people), shrimp, vegetable oil, sesame oil and a little salt to taste. The green […]

Homemade Mac & Cheese

This easy mac & cheese dish took about 15min hands-on time and 20min oven time. Two friends – Josh and Nathan, and I threw this together as a four person meal, and were we stuffed! It was good stuff – worth the wait, creamy and crispy at the same time. After ogling at several people’s […]
