Banana Puff

Super simple dessert idea today.  This is another creation made due to the fact we had a leftover sheet of puff pastry in the fridge, and didn’t know what to do with it.  Did we want to make another Chicken Pot Pie?  Maybe some more Crab Cake Tarts?  Nah, we wanted dessert!  On the fly,…

Chicken Biryani

In my previous post about Trini Roti and Channa Masala, I noted that I had made it for my work potluck.  At the same event, my colleague from India made a Chicken Biryani dish that we all absolutely loved!  Asking him for pointers, I decided to try and make it myself.  All in all, it…

Trini Roti & Chana Masala [Vegetarian/Vegan]

One of the first posts on this blog when I was just filling it up with content was making Trini Roti.  This is a more indepth version, along with a review of a store bought Masala mix! Recently at work, I had setup a potluck with my team members for American Thanksgiving lunch.  Of course,…

Can’t Eat Pasta? Have Spaghetti Squash!

So as most of you know by now, CS has a white flour allergy which has led to some interesting food substitutions.  The most significant one I’ve been on a search for is pasta, which I loooove.   We’ve tried quinoa spaghetti, brown rice lasagna, 100% whole wheat linguine and, surprisingly, the list goes on….

Leftover Chicken Mushroom Bacon Pot Pie [Vegetarian option]

We always seem to have a lot of random food in our house.  Whether it be frozen meat that we’ve set into individual portions bought from a rather large warehouse style retailer, or random veggies in the fridge that are starting to show their age, there’s always something that isn’t quite enough for a full…

Drunken Maple Turkey

For years now, I’ve been following a recipe I found online to make a maple-glaze for when I roast a turkey, however I’ve been tweaking it every year to suit my taste.  What I’ve come up with is a sweet and robust flavour for the turkey and gravy.  Once you try it, you won’t be…

Crab Cake Tarts

Everyone has a go to dish when it comes to potlucks.  For some people, it’s cookies, for others, it’s chips and pop.  For Jax, her go to is an appetizer crab cake tart dish! Ingredients needed: 1/2 package of king crab flavoured Pollock (aka Imitation Crab) 1 can of crabmeat 3 cloves garlic 1/2 white onion…

Garlic Parmesan Wings

One of the things my friends and I always used to do back in our younger days was go out for ‘Wings Wednesday’ at pubs.  We also used to eat at various establishments that specialized in wings, such as Wingnuts (my all time favourite place for wings, RIP), and Wings.  Growing older, I realized I…

Char Siu Udon [Vegetarian/Vegan Option]

We always have a lot of leftovers in this house.  We purposely buy or make enough food to last for the next few days for lunches, and general laziness.  One such item that we always have too much of is BBQ pork.  Both when we buy it from a Chinese BBQ shop, or when we…

Asian-esque Cola Spareribs

I love ribs.  All kinds of ribs.  Short ribs.  spare ribs.  baby back ribs.  side ribs.  pork ribs.  beef ribs.  you name it, I love it.  When I buy a pack of side ribs to throw on the Barbie, there’s always that end piece that doesn’t quite grill well.  Being Asian, I can’t just throw…

Avocado Shake (Sinh To Bo imitation) [Vegan Option]

I love avocadoes.  In sushi, in in guacamole, in sandwiches, plain … they are an awesome fruitegitable (I have no idea if its a fruit or veggie).  One way that I REALLY love them is as a smoothie.  Combining avocadoes and condensed milk together? I’M IN! This recipe is easily made vegan friendly (which I…
