Tabbouleh Style Salad

Why I give my kale the rubdown.

If you’ve noticed, there are a few staple items in my kitchen (ahem, sweet potato). Kale is one of them. We usually eat this leafy green about once a week. When I first tried kale, I didn’t care for it at … Continue reading

Margherita Pizza

22 hours ago we started a pizza. This pizza uses the techniques from this post, but with a new cooking method! We tried something different from Serious Eats. We found we could never get the char we wanted on top. … Continue reading

Black Bean Burrito Bowls

So, you may notice I have a bit of an affinity for Mexican style cooking. We usually do something with this sort of flavour profile every week or 10 days. Despite this familiarity, I could not eat this fast enough. Let’s … Continue reading
