    BLT Pasta Salad

    It’s a week til the Super Bowl. Do you have plans for it? If you’re hosting or if you’re attending a party where you want to bring something, then I have a food idea for you! Normally, people think of cheesy, hearty things for Super Bowl foods. Think, buffalo dip, layered bean dips, etc. And then football party foods like subs. As I was going through my food photos of things I had on my camera roll to share with you on here, I saw this BLT Pasta Salad that I made last year and thought it would be a great party dish. I found this recipe on Pinterest last…

    Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

    I love butter chicken and I found the best slow cooker recipe for it. It is so good that I’ve made it multiple times since I found the recipe last year. I think the key is that it’s a slow cooker recipe because it really allows those flavors to develop. I follow this recipe that I found via Pinterest. I follow the recipe exactly, except I don’t garnish with cilantro cause yuck! I’m one of those people that can’t stand cilantro. I tell this to everyone who asks me about it, but there have been studies that show that for some people they just genetically cannot stand cilantro and it…

    Greek Steak Salad

    Just a quick food post from me this afternoon! You know when you have a mix of leftovers in your fridge and you decide putting them together would actually taste amazing? I don’t mean some weird concoctions, but a real meal. One day I looked in my fridge to see what I had to make for lunch and I saw I had arugula, feta, beets, and steak. This made me think of a delicious salad I had at my friend’s house last summer. I call it a “Greek” steak salad, because it has feta and a greek salad dressing. This is seriously the easiest thing to put together if you’ve…

    A Beginner’s Guide to Getting Into Coffee

    To many people, coffee is a bitter (or acidic) drink that tastes horrible unless it’s mixed with plenty of sugar and milk. It tastes horrible otherwise, but it’s essential to have some every day to keep yourself awake. However, for people that are in the know, coffee is a deep and complex drink that takes a lot of preparation, love and care to really extract those delicate flavours. Because of its reputation, coffee drinking, tasting and preparing can all be very challenging to pick up. So to help you out, we’ve put together a useful guide that will show you exactly how you can get into coffee, enjoy it for…

    Kimchi Fried Rice

    Years ago I tried kimchi fried rice for the first time at Mogo, a Korean fusion taco place, and it was amazing. Since the place isn’t very close to me, I wanted to try to make it myself. I found this recipe last year and while when I make it it’s not as pretty as in the photos of the original recipe or when I’ve gotten it at Mogo it’s still tasty. When I took these photos (last year) I followed the recipe, but I had extra rice so I just increased the ingredients by a little bit. The only other thing I changed was I kept the kimchi pieces…

    December 2019 Favorites

    Every month seems to fly by and I pretty much always say that, but I can’t believe we’re at the last day of 2019! Not just the last day of December, but the last day of the year and decade. It’s so crazy to think about. A lot has changed in the past 10 years and some things have stayed the same. The way 2019 started is really different from the way 2019 is ending. This year I moved out of my townhouse that I had bought with my brother and bought a condo of my own. Spent almost 3 months getting it renovated and just recently moved in. It’s…

    Hershey at Christmas

    The last time I went to Hershey, Pennsylvania I was probably around 10 or 11. Needless to say it’s been a long time and it’s only about 2.5 hours away from me. My hopes of going somewhere tropical this winter vacation were dashed by semi last minute planning and the very high prices of warm weather destinations during the winter. So when thinking of places nearby for a quick getaway, my family and I decided to go to Hershey since I’d heard it’s supposed to be nice for the holidays. We went for 2 days and it was a nice time and not too jam packed, which offered time to…

    Christmas Chicken Pot Pie

    I really thought I had shared a post on here before on chicken pot pie, but after a quick search on here I found out I haven’t! The reason I thought I’d shared it on here before is because my mom has been making this chicken pot pie recipe for as long as I can remember. At least 20 years. Let’s flash back to my childhood. I have family in Canada and have been to visit many times (Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa). When I was young, my aunt and cousins lived in a small town near Montreal and near where she lived was a shop that sold pies. One of the…

    Cozy Gift Guide

    I am all about being cozy. As much as I like going out adventuring and doing things, I also love staying home, being on the couch with a blanket, and watching a movie. So it was a no brainer for me to put together a cozy gift guide. Sweatshirt: Pink Lily Boutique (here) | Blanket: Abercrombie & Fitch (here) | Mug: Anthropologie Is there anything better than being cozied up under a plaid sherpa blanket with a hot drink, in comfy clothes, in front of the Christmas tree? I think not! I love my new Christmas sweatshirt – the Christmas tree in the red truck is so classic. My plaid…
