Fancy (but easy) Mushroom Nest

This week-end I went to Blanc de Gris which is an urban farm specialized in oyster mushrooms. How fun! I was so excited I actually did a cooking test before cooking the whole batch to make sure I would do it right… Well, I’m glad I did because this looked really nice, and it wasContinue reading “Fancy (but easy) Mushroom Nest”

Homemade Granola: Why didn’t I make some of this sooner?

Since I discovered that Bob’s Red Mill was making gluten-free oats, I have been enjoying my overnight oats every morning. But then, I went to Aux Vivres for brunch with a friend and tried out their granola bowl. This was so good! It really made me craving granola and its delicious crispiness. I was veryContinue reading “Homemade Granola: Why didn’t I make some of this sooner?”

Fruit Salad for Lazy Suppers

When I am home alone in the evening my first instinct is just to lounge around with my computer, let myself die of hunger until it is unbearable, and then just grab whatever is available. Tonight, I had a lot of fruit on hand, so I made myself a lazy fruit salad with bananas, strawberriesContinue reading “Fruit Salad for Lazy Suppers”

Corn Chowder, the ultimate comfort soup?

The weather over here has been a little bit moody: rain, snow and fog. Spring is clearly waiting to make a grand entrance. Any day now! (I really hope!) So, with this going on outside, I really felt like some comfort food. And what is more comforting than some chowder? This soup does the trick!Continue reading “Corn Chowder, the ultimate comfort soup?”

Easy Jicama Pasta

I really like jicama! It is great raw in salads: crunchy and fresh, it really adds a lot of texture to any salad. Guess what? It’s also great cooked! Paired up with asparagus and pasta, it creates a very easy and fresh recipe for spring, while still being filling and deliciously flavourful! Cooked jicama hasContinue reading “Easy Jicama Pasta”

Spicy Bean Purée, a nice sub for hummus!

I love hummus! It goes great with everything:  bread, veggie sticks, salads, soups, by the spoonful… I really like adding hummus everywhere as it adds great flavour to any dish: it makes a nice substitution to salad dressing, adds protein to vegetable soups and is (of course) great in sandwiches. However, sometimes it gets old,Continue reading “Spicy Bean Purée, a nice sub for hummus!”

Vietnamese recipe:Che Chuoi, Banana pudding

Another dessert! Again with bananas! This is a little bit different, but definitely in the same flavour combinations. I really enjoy this because, again, it is so easy to make and so delicious too! It is also very comforting as you can eat this warm. Perfect dessert for a cold day! As a kid, IContinue reading “Vietnamese recipe:Che Chuoi, Banana pudding”

Organization tip: Bullet Journal!

A few weeks ago, I came across a video on bullet journals. I was instantly hooked and wanted to start one right away. I still did a little bit of research, mainly here and here, before heading to my go-to paper store. There, I found a on-sale notebook and some ink for my fountain pens.Continue reading “Organization tip: Bullet Journal!”

Vietnamese Recipe: Banh Chuoi, Banana Cake

I think it is about time we talk about desserts! This one is one of my mom’s favourite, and I remember her making huge batches of this. I would then bring slices of it as a snack for school: yum! It is very simple, but the lime flavour is super refreshing and light, which goesContinue reading “Vietnamese Recipe: Banh Chuoi, Banana Cake”
