Kale Caesar Pizza

September 16, 2016 Dinner
kale-caesar-pizza

Alright, this isn’t so much a ‘summer dinner’ as a ‘dinner I made in the summer’, but it’s so incredibly good I have to share it. A good caesar salad is one of my joys in life, and if you’d like to read approximately 5,000 words on why, you can click here. I wrote that […]

Chorizo Chili + Cheesy Beer Bread

Chorizo Chili

Ever so slowly, we’re creeping our way toward Spring over here. I’ve downgraded from my DEFCON 1 parka to a lighter coat, and have shoved my winter boots to the back of the closet. I still wanted to get a couple more cold weather dishes in, so I busted out this chili last weekend. Five […]

Classic Bolognese

February 24, 2016 Dinner
Classic Bolognese

It was a cold, wet, miserable snowing/hailing/raining mess today, so it’s time to talk about comfort carbs. Bolognese has always been something I thought best left to the pros. My friend Jenn taught me to order it at old school Italian restaurants, and that you know it’s legit if there’s a hint of nutmeg. I […]

Butternut Squash Risotto with Balsamic Drizzle & Fried Sage

November 16, 2015 Dinner
Butternut Squash Risotto with Balsamic & Sage

I made risotto for the first time back in 2011, and was so excited about it that I waited almost five years to make it again. That’s just what happens in my kitchen though. There’s always something new to make, so I forget about the things I made that I loved. Risotto also has such […]

Samosa Galette

May 7, 2015 Dinner
Samosa Galette

Samosas are something that I always thought were best left to the pros. Two jobs ago, I had a lovely friend on my team that would bring me samosas and a trio of dipping sauces from her local Indian restaurant/bakery/store. She was the best, and those samosas were a joy in my life. She moved […]

Frito Pie

Frito Pie

It’s Cinco de Mayo today, so it’s a perfect excuse to log this Frito Pie that I made a couple of months ago. Although who really needs an excuse to cover chili with corn chips and cheese and call it dinner? Certainly not me. I can’t think of where I first heard about Frito Pie, […]

Sloppy Janes

Sloppy Janes

Sloppy Joes have a bad wrap, right? They’re messy, meaty, and just not cute. But it turns out that when you make the sauce from scratch and stuff the filling inside fresh soft buns, they’re totally delicious, not to mention quick and satisfying. I saw this recipe on A Cozy Kitchen a couple of years […]

Thai Chicken Fajitas

Sometimes “professional” food bloggers take themselves a little too seriously for my liking. By professional, I mean those who blog full-time, while I maintain my amateur status so I can blog in the Olympics (Bonus points if you get that Friends reference). I was trolling on a few of my favourites to my friend Jenn […]

Creamy Bow Tie Pasta with Sausage, Kale & Sundried Tomatoes

January 12, 2015 Dinner
Creamy Bowtie Pasta with Kale and Sausage

In January I usually refrain from bringing treats into the office, because I don’t like hearing everyone complain about how I’m ruining their New Year’s resolutions. I expected more of the same in my new job, however last week, someone put out a gigantic tray of Ferrero Rocher, and it was gone in about 12 […]

Cheesy Butternut Squash Rigatoni

Cheesy Butternut Squash Rigatoni

You know this thing the kids say these days – “pics or it didn’t happen”? On Planet Byn it’s like “blog or you didn’t eat it”. I swear, if I don’t blog about something I made, even if I LOVED it, I will promptly forget that it ever existed. I have made this pasta dish […]
