Because sometimes you just need a little cake in your life. Like this morning at 9am for instance.

Mug cakes are genius, whoever figured this trick out deserves an award!  You know when you just want something sweet but don't also don't want to have an entire batch of cookies or an entire cake keeping you company while you spend your days working from home - yeah, I know that...

Really Caitlin!? More tacos? Is that all you're eating!?

Yeah! This is who I am now. I have an abnormally large stack of tortillas to get through and I intend to put them to good use.

I bring you another delightful taco recipe. You won't be disappointed by this mixture of colours, and flavours, and textures. For all you onion haters out there, you can not skip the lime marinat...

Fifteen minutes. That’s all the stands between you and these delightful tacos. I'm not feeling very verbose today, so I'm just going to leave it at that.

The original recipe encourages the use of your oven’s broiler to cook the salmon. Apparently, depending on the thickness of the fillet, the salmon will take about six minutes for a thin fillet and eight minutes for a th...

These tacos are my new favourite thing in life. Yeah, you read that correctly, in LIFE! I know, the bar is low at the moment, but even if I wasn't alone and talking to myself for days on end, I'm pretty sure these tacos would still make the highlight reel. They are incredibly quick and easy to make, while still delivering on texture and flavour. Also, they are vegetable-base...

This time, baby, I’ll be bulletproof.

In need of a little morning motivation? Something to get you amped for another day at the home office or that 6km run when it’s -5, real feel -10? What I’m about to say might be a little controversial in some households but hear me out. What if you only needed one cup of coffee?! I know I know, need and want are two totally different thin...

If you’re reading this, you’ve made it through another day of isolation and social distancing. Cheers to that!

I adore happy hour and deeply miss enjoying a drink at the end of the day with someone whose company I enjoy. I know it’s not the same, but virtual happy hour is still a great option. Wind down your day by shaking things up a little. This negroni can be shaken or sti...

This pan of gnocchi is all the things; crispy, buttery, salty, incredibly comforting. It’s the kind of dish that'll make you feel okay about the fact that restaurants are closed. I’m telling you, it is swoon worthy and you will undoubtedly think about it on the regular henceforth. Plus, check out that ingredient list, it is basic! You. Can. Do. This!

If you’ve...

These scones are undoubtedly a small glimmer of pleasure and hope amid a world of chaos. Maybe I'm getting a little stir-crazy, maybe I'm not quite thinking straight and am being a little naive about deriving such pleasure from something that goes into my mouth, but I've always maintained that small pleasures are the key to life. That it is essential to find joy in small and...

I dislike cooking for one. In an ideal world I'd cook for two or more, we'd eat something different each day and I wouldn't have to deal with leftovers. But we live in interesting times, when leaving the house for non-essential reasons isn't encouraged and social distancing is. So cook for one, I must.

As you might have guessed, there are very few leftovers in this world that...

In the dead of winter this dish provides the fresh flavour and colourful abundance that my soul craves. It is no surprise that it tastes like something you’d get in a high-quality restaurant, as it comes from none other than Ottolenghi. He has a number of beautifully crafted cook books, including, Plenty More, where this recipe can be found.

If you’re not into cilantro try sw...

This tart recipe takes a bit of planning, but I promise you it is so worth the effort. It is easily my most favourite recipe from all of 2019. It is light and refreshing, savoury and sweet, the texture is incredible, it’s all the things.

A few special tools/ingredients are recommended. First, a tart pan with a removable bottom, this will ensure your beautiful tart can put its...

An uninspiring title, I know! But it's also the truth. What the title doesn't tell you is how incredibly delicious this zucchini pasta is. Seriously, it's so very good! Pasta and fried zucchini, how can you go wrong? After thinly slicing the zucchini you quickly fry it in oil, in batches. Then you blend 1/3 of the zucchini with some pasta water to make a creamy sauce. Then t...

Fall has officially arrived. For those of you who don't know, Fall is my favourite season. I adore the crisp air, the beautiful leaves, and an excuse to begin to slow down, get cozy.  Plus Thanksgiving, Halloween, and my birthday are all sprinkled in there too! 

Back to the recipe though, I could eat this Every.Single.Day. The texture of the crisp tofu wit...

Something is undoubtedly off when I'm uninspired to cook. You've likely noticed that I've not been around these parts much at all this summer. Occasionally the planets will align and I catch a glimmer enthusiasm, but mostly this season has been a succession of missed opportunities.  What's more - you should see my garden. Let's just say that my neighbours and the food bank a...

According to Smitten Kitchen this the best, nay the ultimate zucchini bread recipe. A zucchini bread recipe to end your search for any other zucchini bread recipes. Stop searching now! What a declaration. I don't disagree.

What's more, the recipe is simple, straight forward, and produces an exceptionally moist loaf. 4 days later it was still lovely and moist! I skipped the ex...
