Za’atar Spice Blend

Za’atar is one of my most favorite condiments, it lends well to almost any type of cuisine but particularly Middle Eastern as that is it’s place of origin. It’s subtle flavors enhance without overpowering. Try it on any meats, in some toasted large pearl couscous, […]

Poppyseed Cupcakes with Poached Apple Roses

I have nothing much to say today other than the fact that I’m cooking and baking summer-like things today, due to a saddening negative-numbers weather forecast for March. You’re a wishful thinker if you’re a Torontonian expecting any kind of spring. We’re still donning our […]

Banana Bread Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve had a couple of mushy old bananas sitting in the freezer for quite some time, and since banana bread’s a little boring – these cookies have put them to much better use! Sorry for the nonpareils sprinkle overload, what else am I going to […]

Old Fashioned Apple Pie

Last year I made a ton of pie. Pies for days. It’s still -20 degrees outside though it’s nearing the end of February, so a good old fashioned apple pie seemed like a good fit for a Sunday afternoon. Besides, I’ve been missing the pie […]

Red Thai Coconut Curry

Last night’s dinner was a quick red Thai coconut curry, definitely share worthy. Minimal ingredients and minimal preparation time – the perfect any-night-of-the-week dinner. There’s no right or wrong amount of heat or acid in this dish, it’s really just up to you to adjust according […]

Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are a slight variation of the ones I posted here, but the sugar has been altered, creating better spread and crispier edges. In my opinion the perfect cookie (chocolate chip or otherwise) is crispy on the edges and slightly soft in the center. A cookie […]

Preserved Lemons

Preserved lemons are something I keep wishing I had on hand, especially a few weeks ago when I made chicken tagine. I can’t bring myself to go pay some fancy grocer for something this simple that I could just learn how to make myself. These […]

Citrus Cornmeal Syrup Cake

  Well, winter is here! It’s official now! Winter makes me want to hole up in the house and cook hot, heavy meals. This is the time of year that good ‘ol waistline worry creeps in. I’m not craving salad anymore, but the selection of […]

Persimmon Bread

    This is my first time trying persimmon believe it or not! They lend quite well to baked goods, especially this moist quick bread. I haven’t had much to share here lately, as I received a big promotion at work recently and my work […]

Tarte Aux Pommes (Apple Tart)

  This week I finished reading a book. Sounds minimal, I know. But it’s been a long while since something’s caught my attention enough to finish it, and in record time too. Cea Person writes of her rollercoaster ride childhood living in and out of […]

Spice Cookies for Autumn.

  Sugar rolled spice cookies and a pot of Chai tea. The perfect accompaniment to this grey October afternoon. I have no interesting stories or opinions to share today, as we’re too busy marathoning Lost (my first time watching, it’s crack), and later: a giant pan of […]
