Usually I am most impressed with the savoury challenges of the Daring Bakers and less impressed with the sweet ones. Well, I think I am slowly learning the ropes of this group, because I feel like I totally got this recipe. For one thing I only made half of the icing and for another I […]

I totally have burger fear. Usually it is the fear of dry burgers but when it comes to poultry it is also fear of killing people. I actually planned to make a homemade veggie burger last night but then I went to Whole Foods. My first experience at Whole Foods, and really I couldn’t just […]

You can real feel that the winter is almost here, it is so chilly! Which is why you need soups like this one. This will warm you all the way to your toes with it’s creamy, spicy, deliciousness. I always kinda thought cauliflower was low on the nutritional scale. Sure it is low carb, but […]

After the race on Sunday I took J out for lunch and he ordered this fabulous looking macaroni and cheese, I was really glad he did because real mac and cheese is so good but so rich. However, I always regret ordering it halfway through and then a few hours later… So the other day […]

This soup is truly a 15 minute meal, and barely needs a recipe but it really was quite comforting and delicious and there were enough leftovers for quality lunches the next day.  These flavours also work well as a pasta.  Kale is just so good in soups because it doesn’t fall apart like spinach, though […]

This month the Daring Bakers made pizza. I don’t think I need to comment on this post, the picture says it all. Fantastic, absolutely fantastic. I did try tossing it once but I decided once was enough, plus the dough was very pliable. For my toppings I used pesto, spinach, feta and fresh tomatoes. Delicious. […]
