Goat Cheese Panna Cotta

Some weeks are better than others. This week, though, I was killing it in the kitchen. Sometimes, I feel like I can be a culinary genius but then I quickly get off my high horse after an episode of Chopped. Although, a TV show or a professional would not be able to strip me away from…

Goat cheese, parsley and cauliflower soufflé

This dish is an airy and puffy single portioned goat cheese soufflé recipe. It fluffs up when its removed from the oven. If you are a cheese enthusiast, you will love the hint of goat cheese in this dish. The cauliflower provides a hearty side to this light appetizer. It looks beautiful and is an impressive course…

Funfetti Pronuts!

  As I am looking at , hopefully, our last snowfall in Montreal, I am just trying to find enough Springtime glee to be able to muster up enough joy linked to Easter menus to proudly scream that Spring is finally here. But instead, I am cringing at the site of another snowfall. On a…

The BEST Hollandaise Sauce

I have probably made the “by the book” traditional Hollandaise for years as I am a fan of brunch, spiked orange juice, a fat platter of funky styled Benny eggs with a heaping  dollop of Hollandaise sauce dropping down your poached eggs like hot lava. What if I said I have come up with a…

Clean Crab Salad

I crave simple recipes for lazy days and other times where I am rushing with time before having to get to work. Moreover, with this crappy weather, I have been craving summer dishes. Lobster rolls to be specific. Since it is not the season and I am not yet balling out, I have opted for…

Baked Mussels + Hard Liquor

This post is likely just long overdue. Last Christmas, everyone was ready to eat something different. My mom is a seafood fan while my father’s a whisky fan. My siblings and I are mix and matching type of people. I decided to take care of the appetizers this year, while my sister hosts, my brother…

Black Bean Brownies

When I first stumbled on this recipe, I thought it would be interesting to try. I am a fan of finding the right substitutes to our favourite munchies. After months of reluctance, (likely due to not being quite sure how beans can replace flour) I gave in and played around with a few recipes and…

A taste of Morocco: Spicy Veal Tagine

I am unsure if I should call it a tagine since I did not use the tagine. A tagine is a clay pot used predominantly in North Africa in order to make Stews. Now, I did not use a tagine but I did make a hell of a stew. Usually served with couscous, I was lucky…

Clean Loaded Tostones

I have made this recipe over and over again but only a my house. I have yet to to test these babies on my Caribbean and/or Hispanic friends. For sure I will not tell them these were not fried because I will get dissed right away. Therefore, I will have to trick them. Yes, lie….

Turkey Sausage Rutabaga Pie

Mi amigos! I am proud to introduce to you a breakfast, a lunch, a dinner or a snack (if you’re freaky) which will blow your low carb minds. It is a fairly fast and easy recipe that is immersed with much flavor as the natural aromatics in the dish compliment each other greatly. It is a rich meal for…

Tomato and Olive Tapenade

The moment I felt the sweet kiss of pinot grigio, my toes curled, my eyelids got heavy and my knees got weak. I was smitten by the aromatic and the bitter side of grigio. It was like my interpretation of fifty shades of grey if I read the book or saw the movie. On a serious…
