Mussels with Pasta in Tomato Sauce

Mussels are inexpensive, elegant, delicious, and easy to cook. If you have a  bag of mussels, some butter, a little garlic, shallots, and a bottle of wine, dinner is on the table in 15 minutes. But why stop there?

There are infinite ways to cook mussels. You serve them steamed, sauced up, added to a seafood stew or paella, or tossed in pasta. One of my favorites is mussels in rich, perfectly seasoned tomato sauce with pasta *chefs kiss*.

Oreo Donuts

These two donuts are the inspiration behind these Oreo donuts. It combines the best parts of my two favourite donuts – a soft, dense chocolate cake donut with a vanilla cream cheese glaze topped with crushed Oreos. Oh, and I folded some crushed Oreos in the batter as well. Yes – there are Oreos both IN and ON the donut (YOLO).

Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls

There is something magical about homemade cinnamon rolls. I love making them as much as I love eating them (well, almost). I mean, what’s better than a gooey cinnamon bun fresh out of the oven? I know you’re probably saying “nothing, that’s what,” and I agree. But, hear me out. What about trying something a little different in the realm of holiday flavours? Leftover eggnog can be put to excellent use in non-beverage items, too, like these eggnog cinnamon rolls, for example (brilliant, I know).

Vanilla Crème Brûlée Recipe

There’s something about crème brûlée. Even the words sound fancy. It’s the sort of dish you expect to find at swanky French restaurants.

What if I told you that you could make crème brûlée at home? It’s true! And it tastes just as good as the ones at those fancy restaurants. All it takes is five simple ingredients – cream, vanilla, salt, egg and sugar.
