Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’ with Ranch Dip

Chicken wings are firmly on my list of favourite foods, spicy buffalo ones occupying the top spot. This recipe is a vegetarian version of them.

So good!

I was inspired to cook up something like this after my recent visit to Ottawa’s Pure Kitchen which serves amazing cauliflower wings (I fell in love at the first bite). After browsing the internet and a few stabs at the recipe, here is what I came up with and it is very good, if I say so myself. Continue reading “Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’ with Ranch Dip”

Easy eggplant

This eggplant dish will surprise you, as when you are eating it you will wonder if this is actually an eggplant. Or maybe this is mushrooms?

So good!

Anyway, it will be gone in no time as you will find yourself reaching for more. If you manage to have some leftovers, this dish is great on the next day as a deeper flavour will develop in the fridge. Continue reading “Easy eggplant”

Custard Tarts and Cooking Lesson

Have you ever had a Portuguese custard tart? They are among my favourite desserts and I spend way too much money on them in the nearby Portuguese bakery.

Amazing evening spent at Just Be Cooking class :). And you don’t leave empty handed!

As is customary with me, I decided to get my hands on a good custard recipe so I could make them at home. Enter my good friend Maria Rozynska, the founder of Just Be Cooking cooking school that teaches a variety of ethnic cooking classes accompanied by live singing from that particular heritage. I signed up for a Portuguese class taught by lovely Carla Ramos from Table to Share in Toronto. Continue reading “Custard Tarts and Cooking Lesson”

The Best WP Posts I Read In July 2018

My post was mentioned by the marvellous Hunida! I’m beyond flattered! 😁

Hunida's Blog

Hey all, welcome to the second edition of The Best WP Posts I Read! I tried to make the list a little shorter this time so I strayed away from posts falling under these categories: Favorites, Monthly/Weekly Updates, Coffee Chats, Journal Entries, Tags & Awards, Travel Diaries, OOTDs, MOTDs, HaulsWishlists, and Unboxings because honestly, I love when each and every one of you post any of the aforementioned and this list would be way too long if I included all of those I enjoyed throughout the entire month.

Instead, here’s a list of some other really entertaining posts I read in July 2018 that don’t fall under any of those categories:

Curried Tofu with Cauliflower and Chickpeas

I love tofu and can actually eat strait out of package, but am always on a lookout for a new recipe. I had some cauliflower and a can of chickpeas kicking around and decided to add mix it all with some curry and see what happens.
