Chocolate Avocado Cake-Like Brownie

I have been seeing a lot of recipes showing up that call for the use of avocado.  The only way I have ever had avocado is in guacamole or tossing it in a salad.  I was intrigued by the possible versatility of this ingredient.

Roasted Beets with Shallot and Orange Dressing

I have never really thought of eating beets.  I normally pass by them in the grocery store.  However, one night when I was out for dinner at The Keg, my side seasonal vegetable was roasted beets.

Pretzel Burger Buns

It started out as any other Sunday.  Jamie and I were planning out our meals for the week, and we were getting ready to spend another fabulous day in the kitchen.  Then Jamie made a suggestion to make some home-made hamburgers for dinner.  This was a great idea, since we haven’t had home-made burgers since Super Bowl Sunday when Jamie whipped up a batch of sliders.

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

When my nephew, Sam, comes to Ottawa for a visit, I want to make sure that his visit is filled with yummy treats.  While his parents entice him with healthy fare like veggies and chicken, I feel it is my duty as Auntie Connie to present him with fun food options like cookies, cake and ice cream 🙂

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Jamie and I eat pizza at least once a week.  It is my one true vice.  I could eat pizza every day, for every meal, and be quite happy.  We love pizza so much, that we even ordered it for our wedding rehearsal dinner 🙂

Lemon Meringue Pie

I love lemon.  Our apartment is filled with lemon scented candles, I wear lemon scented perfume, I love lemon.  It is amazing that I love this fruit so much, yet I have never, ever made a lemon meringue pie.  Actually I have made very few pies, I am a bit nervous about pastry (and as you will see, I still haven’t made it) but that will change this year, I promise!

Chili Chicken & Peppers

Well, I am back with another super easy chicken recipe 🙂

Chicken is our go-to dish for any night of the week.  We grill it (on an indoor grill), bake it, pan fry it, stuff it, or even throw it in the slow cooker.  But, as I am sure you can appreciate, when you eat chicken almost daily, you really need to experiment with flavours or else you will get bored.

Coconut Almond Cookie Sandwich

I have mentioned before how I love getting supermarket check-out cooking magazines.  Well, I once again gave into my impulse and grabbed the January/February issue of The Food Network Magazine.  The cover featured a delicious bowl of chili that caught my eye.

Bacon Wrapped Almond Stuffed Dates

These are little bites of heaven, and I thought that they would be the perfect recipe to share leading up to Valentine’s Day.  You may be asking yourself why, and the answer is simple, I love bacon, so this is kind of like a Valentine’s treat for myself 🙂
