Scallop Ceviche

I ate raw scallops and survived! 🙂  Well, okay, they weren’t really raw but they were “cooked” with lime juice in the fridge. Zero-heat cooking!

I was flipping through a recent copy of the LCBO magazine, and saw a beautiful, bright picture for TikiTiki Ceviche Scallops in Half Coconut Shell. It looked so appetizing that I immediately showed it to Jamie and put it on our kitchen chalkboard as a must try.

Raw Coconut Cherry Ball Pops

I know it was only a couple of weeks ago when I posted the Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ball recipe, but I came up with another creation this weekend, and I just couldn’t wait to share it with you!

My friend, Kerri, and I were talking about how great raw cookies are and that she had shared the link to the cookie ball post with some of her friends. The feedback was that we might be in the middle of a bliss ball revolution! (bliss ball being a raw cookie ball)  I heard their battle cry and was determined to come up with a new bliss ball creation 🙂

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie? It really is the cookie that all other cookies are compared to. It makes a lot of sense. Chocolate, butter and sugar, well, it is pretty much perfect.

Everyone has a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe that they stand behind. I have mentioned before that my favourite cookie recipes involve rolled oats, but this recipe isn’t my tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe. I tried this one after my Mom gave me a pile of cookbooks when she cleaning out her kitchen.

Maple Bacon Crème BrulĂ©e

OK, you all know how much I love bacon. It is true; in fact, I think I might be addicted. You know you have a problem when your friends and co-workers comment that your recent blog entries have been lacking that element of bacon. Well, hopefully this post will right the wrong that I have been avoiding my bacon quota 🙂

Beef Wellington with Mushroom PâtĂ©

If you have been following along on my blogging journey, you have likely picked up on the fact that one of our favourite restaurants is The Keg. We really enjoy their steaks, they are always perfect, and not having a BBQ is a great excuse to go out for a delicious steak dinner.

One weekend, we decided to try to do steaks in the apartment. Now, we could have used our grill pan, but we wanted to try something different. So, to the internet I went, looking for steak dinner ideas. When I saw Beef Wellington turn up in my search results, I saw this as a real possibility.

Lemon Baked Chicken

Chicken.  You can cook it so many ways.  It is delicious and healthy, but it is easy to fall into a routine when cooking this on a very regular basis.  I came across this recipe on the Kraft website and immediately book-marked it and sent the link to my sister.

Jamie and I eat a lot of chicken (as you already know) so another recipe for our weekly repertoire is always good, but what caught my attention with this preparation was lemon.  Yum, I love lemon, so I knew I had to try this one out 🙂

Chocolate Mocha Cookie

I love coffee!  This wasn’t always the case, and I feel that it definitely is a flavour that you start to appreciate as your tastebuds mature.  I tend to lean towards flavoured coffee, which is what makes up my entire Keurig collection.  In fact, my favourite coffee flavour combination is mocha (half coffee/half hot chocolate) Yummy!
