Walleye Rice Cakes | Leftover Makeover

One of my “fridge struggles” is finding something to do with leftover food, especially with the common left over items like rice and pasta. The other night I had two items on hand: left over wild ancient grain rice and fresh walleye from a fishing trip with my dad. So off to the kitchen I went and concocted this recipe. It was also a crowd pleaser even to the most difficult to impress (aka. our dad who calls everything we make “hippy food”, loved these cakes).

Healthy and Easy Chickpea Coconut Curry

One of my best and longterm friends is a registered dietician and she always takes about making chickpea curries, so after some googling, I’ve settled on this recipe. The perfect balance between spicy and savoury, this dish is packed with goodness, thanks to the chickpeas, fresh herbs and coconut milk. Considering you can make it basically out of canned food (which is great if you are in a time crunch), it’s surprisingly easy too. You know the drill BS’ers, let’s get to this recipe.

Shrimp Pho

While other people crave chocolate, fast food or other types of sinful dishes when they are sick or stressed out, mine is definitely Vietnamese food – specifically cold rolls and pho. I love the light and fresh flavours that leave you feeling full and happy. I usually order it from my favourite restaurant in town, the Asian Wok, but tonight I decided it was time to learn to make my own – especially with finances being strict with the new house and being sick and not wanting to be out in public…. So I made the dive and made my own shrimp pho. Continue reading

Angel Food Cake with Lemon Whipped Cream Frosting and Citrus-Berry Compote

Well I must be honest… I tried to make an angel food cake from scratch last week and I failed… like not even failed a little bit… failed miserably. The whole thing didn’t even rise – but I blame the recipe since it said to combine the flour right to the eggs – and I shouldn’t have known better but hey…. learn from your mistakes right? So if you don’t find success, try, try, try again…and then made this beautiful recipe for angel food cake from the liner from the Wilton Angel Food Cake Pan.

Homemade Chicken Nuggets with a Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

If anyone has ever had a mentor, they know they are completely invaluable and probably the best thing since sliced bread (Capital G, L & K if you’re reading this – this means you!!). I’ve never really had a cooking mentor (if you don’t count my grandma), but I’ve recently met one. But he’s more like an Iron Chef – always pushing innovative ideas for food and makes you want to cook fancy food all the time. So this post is for you Beets – or is a Iron Chef CB a better blog name? Either way, let’s get to these chicken nuggets!
