It’s time to celebrate! We’ve partnered with The Keg Steakhouse + Bar and Meiomi Wines Canada to give one of Instagram follower a $100 Keg gift card.
Pre-pandemic, there were a few dishes that I would never attempt to make at home. For example, sushi or ramen, or mashed potatoes. There was no reason for this, other than those dishes being out of the culinary comfort (or patience) zone. But it’s a new world, folks. Despite 2020 seeming like a dumpster fire sometimes, one good thing that came about from social distancing and stay-at-home orders was having more time to learn new things (in my experience, anyway). So, I set out to create a ramen recipe. I’ll leave sushi up to the professionals a little while longer. I’m proud of how this recipe turned out and am excited to share it with you.
Shakshuka is a one-pan egg and tomato dish perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s comforting, easy, and downright delicious.
If you’re not familiar with Dan Dan noodles, or if you are aware but have never made it yourself, this, my friends, is for you. Find out how to make my mushroom version of the classic dish, and why the whole family will love it.
I love Indian food. In fact, when I die, you can bury me in a vat of paneer masala. Indian food is categorically delicious: the flavors oscillate between sweet, spicy, and savory, and it melds creamy sauces with soft bread, tender meat, and vegetables to make something incredible. It’s a divine synthesis that is aromatic and sophisticated without being bougie, yet has something for every dietary inclination.
Recently, we were invited to the new Guru Kitchen + Bar downtown for their Date Night Experience. Almost equivocal to my love for Indian food is my adoration for date nights so you can imagine my excitement. Walking into Guru, you are instantly hit with that enticing aroma we all know and love, and you know you’re in for a treat. We did not leave disappointed.
Do you know that saying “on good days, work out, on bad days, work out harder”? Replace “work out” with “bake cookies”, and you have an accurate reflection of my life. Baking cookies is a slight obsession of mine. I am always trying to make the next batch better than the last. In an alternate life, I’d have a sweet (pun intended) job as a Cookie Developer – that exists, right?
My latest iteration is in the form of a chocolate chip cookie- a cookie that tastes like sunshine and happiness. Yes, that’s some high praise, I know. But aside from a ton of chocolate chips, there are also toasted hazelnuts, Skor bits, and oats – that’s right, it even has healthy things. Here are other reasons why you’ll love this recipe.
Spinach and artichoke dip might be one of my favourite things to order at a restaurant. Moreover, if its constant presence on restaurant menus is any indication, I’m not alone on that opinion.
Until recently, I had never considered making my own spinach and artichoke dip. However, when restaurants aren’t available (a snow day, a pandemic..), you have to satisfy that craving for bubbling hot spinach and artichoke somehow.
In almost any baking aisle, next to the chocolate chips, you will find Reese’s Pieces Mini Baking Chips. I am a big fan of these. You can stir them into cookies and brownie batter, use them on top of cakes and cupcakes, or enjoy them by the handful (seriously, no judgement). This is recipe for Reese’s Pieces Oatmeal Cookies is your the whole family will love.
The COVID 19 pandemic has impacted nearly every aspect of society in the past few weeks, and the food world – restaurants, bars, catering companies, delivery services, and all the workers that power them – has felt the impact acutely.
In an effort to encourage people to support our local businesses during this time, here is a list of places in Edmonton offering pick-up and/or delivery services.
I’m pretty sure that banana bread is 50 per cent of the reason why bananas exist. The thousands of banana bread recipes out there is proof of this. I’d wager 25% is allotted to other baked goods, 20% firmly in the smoothie category, and maybe 5% to eating a banana by itself (people actually find that appealing? I digress). While there are a lot of good recipes to be found in the black hole that is Google, this one is my favourite.
