Strawberry Peanut Butter Cup Cake

Strawberry Peanut Butter Cup Cake

What up, ya’ll. Happy Friday (or Saturday, if you’re in Australia). Today I made a cake. In the great divide between sweet and savoury, I always lean towards the more savoury things in life. Always have. But regardless of my natural tendencies, every now and then you need to bang out a wicked dessert and […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Do you have a kitchen vice? Something that, if left in your kitchen, will basically taunt you until you eat it. Something with the tractor beam pull so strong it should feature in the next Spielberg film? I do. Hi, my name is Dennis, and I have a problem with ice cream. If there’s ice […]

Maple Carbonara

Maple Carbonara

I am a huge believer in date night. Life is busy…arguably too busy for most of us. And it’s important to take the time to enjoy things like eating together, drinking great wine, having long ‘what’s going on in your life’ conversations etc. Sans cell phone and no TV in site. (a hard but necessary […]

Quick Hoisin Chicken with Ginger Scallion Noodles

Quick Hoisin Chicken with Ginger Scallion Noodles

I could eat noodles every day. Seriously. I love em. So fast, so diverse – you could literally eat a different noodle dish every day for weeks. This recipe may seem intense based on the long ingredient list, but it’s really easy, and quick. Perfect week night meal. 8 ounces Chinese egg noodles 2 1/2 […]

Dutch Baby.

Dutch Baby.

Dutch, Baby. I love pancakes. I mean, who doesn’t.  The first time I made a Dutch Baby (or German Pancake) it seriously blew my mind. So simple to make, but super cool. The curbside appeal of this pancake is fantastic. Brunch guests will love it, and you’ll love how easy it is.  I’ve probably made […]

Maple Curry Pumpkin Soup with Candied Pumpkin Seeds

Maple Curry Pumpkin Soup with Candied Pumpkin Seeds

Fall is here. In Atlantic Canada, that means the leaves are starting to turn from green to a gorgeous deep red and orange. Hoodies can be seen as far as the eye can see. And pumpkins, squash, and apples are finally making it to the local market. I’m always slightly bummed when fall comes because […]

Hoisin Pulled Pork

Hoisin Pulled Pork

Travelling is amazing. A few years ago, I travelled to (and ended up living in) Nashville, Tennessee. Home to country music, fantastic coffee, and most importantly, home to some of the best bbq I’ve ever eaten. I was absolutely done. I’d arrived in heaven, and was immediately spoiled for anything slow cooked and covered in […]

Chocolate Coffee Cake Doughnuts

Chocolate Coffee Cake Doughnuts

I love coffee. Admittedly, I may have a problem. But as I see it, there are far worse things to be addicted to than a good cup of joe. I’m also coffee spoiled. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to hang out at an amazing coffee roaster and café in Dartmouth, NS. Anchored […]

Honey Garlic Noodles

Honey Garlic Noodles

We eat a lot of noodles at home. A lot of noodles. They’re so quick to make, filling, and you can make so many dishes with noodles as a base. Also, I’m convinced that eating with chopsticks makes everything better. Of all the noodle dishes we eat, this is the recipe that is most requested […]

Cherry Tomato Pasta with Red Pepper Chili Pesto & Goats Cheese

Cherry Tomato Pasta with Red Pepper Chili Pesto & Goats Cheese

For me, there is nothing more comforting than a big bowl of pasta. Maybe coffee on a rainy day. We’ll call in a tie. This is a super simple, delicious pasta – fantastic when local tomatoes are in season. You can definitely mix and match the veggies, depending on your tastes and what’s available at […]
