Winter Detox Salad

Happy 2017! Excited to kick off the New Year with an easy, fresh and tasty recipe. Last week, one of my besties Jill brought over a delish salad from her local Farm Boy market, and as soon as I tried it I knew I had to create a copycat. This easy broccoli-cauliflower salad is crunchy…

Baked Potato, Ham & Cheese Frittata

It has been pretty hot here in Southern Ontario for the past couple of weeks, so for a quick and easy summer dinner I love making a frittata (basically a crustless quiche). What’s great about a frittata is that you add in leftovers to make an amazingly delicious meal. This time I had a leftover…

Cheesy Chimichurri Garlic Bread

A year or two ago we tried some really fantastic cheesy garlic bread topped with chimichurri at our local Milestone’s restaurant.

It…

Easy Classic Basil Pesto

Kara’s Perfect Tiramisu

I have been making this Tiramisu recipe of mine for years, and recently re-tested it to ensure its deliciousness and accuracy, and indeed still perfect and a dessert that is perfect as a Mother’s Day treat!

Tutti Frutti Pancakes

These delicious fruit filled pancakes are inspired by my cousin’s husband and his awesome “fruit pancakes” he makes for us when we visit. Bob’s secret is a waffle and pancake mix and some malted milk powder, my secret weapon is my go-to buttermilk pancake recipe. What is the same, is that I follow his lead by filling…
