Mini Banoffee Pies

Banoffee = banana + toffee. If you love bananas, caramel, and cream, then you’ll love banoffee pie. I don’t remember where or when I first had it, but I do remember it was love at first bite. This recipe is SUPER easy to make but it does take some time waiting around for the dulce de leche to caramelize. Grab a book or put on a movie while the oven does the work for you!… Continue reading →

Currywurst (A Curry Ketchup Recipe)

This is a recipe for curry ketchup – Berlin style. Currywurst is a street food dish originating from Berlin that is essentially just sausages served with curry ketchup. Sounds simple enough, but the curry ketchup is much more than just adding curry powder to ketchup. It’s got a much richer flavour that I just can’t get enough of! Serve it over sausages, fries, or fancy up a burger!… Continue reading →

Chicken Marsala

I discovered this dish accidentally when a friend and I were looking for a recipe for chicken MASALA, the Indian dish, not chicken MARSALA, the Italian dish. It was the best accident we made in that kitchen. The chicken is so tender and wonderfully smothered in a creamy mushroom wine sauce that is just so addicting.… Continue reading →

Mushroom Sausage Risotto

Warning: This recipe is slow, painful, and requires constant attention, but the end result is a beautiful creamy risotto, made the traditional way. It’s not difficult but it is time-consuming. I’m a fan of versatile recipes and this recipe fits right into that category. I’ve written it as a ‘mushroom and sausage risotto’, but you can add in whatever meat or veg you want. Just keep the methods of making the rice the same and at the end just stir in whatever cooked meat or veg you like.… Continue reading →

Babička’s Svíčková (Beef with Vegetable Cream Sauce)

This is Toby’s babička’s (grandmother’s) version of a svíčkova. It’s his all time favourite Czech dish – and I can see why! In its simplest terms, svíčkova is a steak dish served with knedlíky (Czech bread dumplings) and smothered in the most addicting creamy vegetable sauce made of parsnip, celeriac, carrots and onion. There’s a slight lemon-y tang to the sauce that balances out the heaviness of the cream.… Continue reading →

Knedlíky (Czech Bread Dumplings)

Knedlíky is a traditional Czech bread dumpling that is commonly served in many traditional Czech foods, especially in those dishes that have a lot of sauce or a soup/stew to soak up the delicious flavour. They’re fluffy and ever so slightly sweet. Although they’re like bread, you don’t bake or steam them – you boil them! … Continue reading →

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

This isn’t any ordinary creamy mushroom soup – in fact, there isn’t any heavy cream at all. The creaminess comes from a flour/milk mixture that thickens the soup and the addition of sour cream makes it even richer. Paprika adds a smokiness to the soup that pairs well with the fragrance of dill which are the two dominant flavours of the dish along with the tang of the sour cream. This soup can be served on its own as an appetizer or a side dish, or you can bulk it up with some diced potatoes or add in nokedli (Hungarian dumplings) for a full meal. … Continue reading →

Spicy Basil Chicken Stir-Fry

Get ready for a quick and easy, healthy, low-calorie, and flavourful stir-fry! This recipe is super versatile – you can add just about any veggies you want to this dish, perfect for clearing out the fridge at the end of the week. The flavourful sauce is just oyster sauce but when cooked in all the released juices of the chicken and the liquid from the veggies, it becomes damn delicious and magical. Serve over a warm bed of rice or toss in some noodles.… Continue reading →

Favourite Roasted Pumpkin Spinach Soup

Of all the soups I make, this is probably one of the top go-to soups that Toby and I put together the most often. Why? Because it’s damn delicious, damn easy, healthy, low calorie and and filling. It even makes for an easy clean up. Sounds too good to be true, eh? The best part is that you don’t need to follow this recipe to a tee. You can add whatever veg you like to the roasting pan – which is a perfect way to sneak in extra veg for picky eaters or an even better way to clear out the fridge.… Continue reading →

Insanely Good Mushroom Cream Sauce

You will want to swim in this, guaranteed. The great thing about this sauce is that it’s super versatile. You can put it over just about anything – think: schnitzel, french fries, grilled chicken, baked potatoes, pasta…etc. The possibilities are endless! This sauce is super easy to make, the hardest part is the waiting game for the sauce to simmer down until you can dive right in.… Continue reading →

Warm Pumpkin Kale Pesto Bowl

This is my recreation of a delicious brunch plate I had recently. The feta and pesto flavours dominate this dish but are contrasted well by the sweetness of the warm roasted pumpkin and the juiciness of the sautéed mushrooms and tomatoes on a bed of soft massage kale. This hearty healthy dish is satisfying, filling, and a snap to put together. Serve it warmed or cooled.… Continue reading →
