Quick & Easy Spicy Peanut Noodles

0 comments

I’m always looking for quick and easy lunch or dinner ideas – especially ones that use ingredients I already have on hand. I spend a lot of time cooking for the camera (and for my family), but when it comes to myself, I often reach for something simple and satisfying. […]

Bubbie’s Split Pea Soup

0 comments

It’s fall in Ontario, which means brightly colored leaves (most of which are on the ground now), shorter days, and blustery, chilly days (and nights!) In other words, it’s soup season. There’s a famous kosher-style dairy restaurant here in Toronto that’s been owned and operated by the same family for […]

Smoky bbq brisket with onion jam

0 comments

Weekends are for slow cooking. Especially rainy weekends like we’re having today. Since Mother Nature isn’t interested in outdoor BBQs right now, I’m bringing the outside indoors with this vegan take on a Smoky BBQ Brisket. Smoky BBQ sauce, brown sugar, spices and caramelized onions give this seitan-based roast a […]

Cauliflower “cheese” pasta

If you’re like me, you’ve almost always got parts of a cauliflower hanging around your fridge by the end of the week.  I’m the only real fan here, so anytime it gets added to a dish, it’s in small quantities just for me. And I’m always looking for ways to […]

Loaded Baked Potato Soup with Kale

We woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning – not enough to really stick (it’s all gone now), but enough to remind me that winter is on its way.⁣⁠⁣⁠Of course, as I’m typing this, I’m seeing the weather forecast will hit 60F again by Friday, but it’s […]

Summer Asian Chick’n Salad

0 comments

This is my on-repeat-all-the-time summer salad.  It hits all the right notes: it’s light, fresh, crispy and tangy, and so satisfying.   When I was in university, there was this restaurant halfway between my house and school called Dr. Deli and the Salad Queen, and aside from slinging traditional deli […]

Not Your Mom’s Passover Brisket

If you celebrate any Jewish holidays, or even Shabbat dinner, it’s pretty much a given that you are familiar with the ubiquitous beef brisket that your mom learned to make from her mom (who learned to make it from her mom…) After all, it’s pretty much required eating at the […]
