Leek and Potato Soup

There are two things that I miss about Estonia. All of my wonderful friends, and predictable seasons. Saturday it was 23 degrees. Then 5cm of snow and 0 degrees on Sunday with the rest of the week looking to be about the same. Having grown up here, I'm used to not really truly getting a... Continue Reading →

Lemon Pepper Chicken Thighs

I'm extra excited about this meal! Not to date myself, but many, many years ago, as a young woman with a serious lack of cooking knowledge, I decided to give chicken thighs a go. They're cheap and a great source of protein so I figured I would be able to eat well and also save... Continue Reading →

Chicken Tikka Masala

With our COVID numbers holding steady here in the province, the government has unsurprisingly extended their provincial health measures. This means another two weeks where I will have nothing but time on my hands. With this extension, I would be lying if I said that this second lock down wasn't starting to get to me....

Beef and Barley stew

Old man winter has come and settled over us finally. The days are short and my inspirational urges to write, even shorter. The only reasonable way to make it through these long winter months is to make soup and stew, and a lot of it. Beef and barley stew is usually a hit or miss... Continue Reading →

Banana Muffins For the Soul.

Apple Crisp… A Lazy Man’s Pie?

Say, do you remember when I wrote that I would get back to this blog and back to what I was doing in a previous life? Yea, me too. Life however, as I've so spectacularly learned, doesn't go according to plan. Between renovating the new place and starting working again, I haven't had much time... Continue Reading →

No More Boring Chicken (NZD #20)

Lately I've been working on adjusting my diet to better suit my increased activity level as well as my increased age. Along with that, I made a very important decision. I decided that I was worth spending the extra money on chicken for meals during the week. The issue with chicken, at least for myself,... Continue Reading →

Spicy Black Bean Soup (NZD #11)

Yesterday I didn't have time to post because I was busy making.... Soup! Continuing on the theme from last week that was "I have too many odds and ends foods" in my fridge and pantry. It's probably good to clear some of it out before my mom loses it. I decided to make a soup.... Continue Reading →

Falafel Friday (NZD #3)

It's Friday today. And that means that it is a day for me to make a new recipe that I would like to try. I feel as though I am not the only one that goes through this, but I'm starting to find that my cupboards are getting full with left overs from other cooking... Continue Reading →
