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…

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…

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…

Honey Sesame Bananas

This dessert is absolute easy. It is a great, clean and natural quick sugar fix. Simple ingredients make the best dishes. In Montreal, most of our Asian restaurants or Sushi Spots have a small dessert menu which most will include a deep fried in tempura battered banana. May I add that it is awesome. I…

New Year, NEW…

Cheers to my first post of 2016 As I kick off the New Year, it is fairly easy to simply put 2015 behind me as I attempt to take my leaps forward. This past year has been a whirlwind of changes that life has forced me to undergo for reasons that took time for me…
