Thai Peanut Quinoa Bowl

I’ve been posting a lot of dinner recipes lately, and I love it. I’m on a hot streak of kitchen hits and I have to document them here or I totally forget about them. I’ve actually made this TWICE in the past two months, which may not seem like a big deal, but to me […]

Mushroom Stroganoff

Mushroom Stroganoff

Updated with a new picture January 12, 2017 As soon as the weather warms up, all thoughts of cozy comfort food will be lost. It’ll be all about green things and fresh vegetables and the annual tradition of trying to convince myself I like asparagus. So I’m logging this here for the Fall 2014 Byn, […]

Thai Sloppy Joes with Asian Slaw

Thai Sloppy Joes

I love knowing what other people eat for dinner during the week. Do they cook a regular rotation of favourites or try new things? How do they grocery shop? One big shop on the weekend or little shops throughout the week? Do they plan specific meals or just create meals on the fly? I’m obsessed. […]

Chicken Parmesan Meatballs

Remember the good old days when there were still Olive Gardens in Toronto? My friends and I used to go in high school and I vividly remember having chicken parmesan there and it blowing my mind. Deep fried crunchy deliciousness topped with tomato sauce and so much cheese. Holy cow. Throw in the salad and […]

Updated with a new picture May 25, 2016 I mentioned in my Blog-iversary post the other day that I wanted to stop feeling pressure to only post styled photos, because “Sometimes you make an amazing pizza and it’s 9pm, and it’s the most delicious thing you’ve eaten all week, and all you have is an […]

Sweet & Sour Brisket {Gastropost Mission #86}

January 18, 2014 Beef & Pork
Sweet & Sour Brisket - Copy

When this week’s Raw vs. Slow mission was announced, I picked my side in no time. Team Raw is fine for the summer, when there’s lots of farm fresh produce around that doesn’t need any cooking, but in the depths of January, obviously I’m Team Slow. I knew right away that I wanted to make […]

Farro with Sausage, Mushrooms & Swiss Chard

Farro with Sausage, Mushrooms & Chard

I have pretty high standards for a made-from-scratch weeknight meal. Obviously it has to taste good. If it’s fairly quick to pull together, that’s great too. The fewer pots it uses up the better. And if it reheats well for the lunch the next day, that’s a bonus. In the summer, these are easy criteria […]

Kung Pao Chicken Tacos

I’m obsessed, OBSESSED I say, with these Kung Pao Chicken Tacos that I found on How to Eat over my Christmas holidays. I met the lovely Dara & Erin at the Food Bloggers of Canada conference last year, and their blog is one of my favourites that I’ll visit if I want some fresh, healthy […]

Roasted Butternut Squash & Mushroom Pie

Mushroom BOOM! That was our challenge for this week, and I knew right away what I wanted to make. Smitten Kitchen’s Mushroom Bourguignon, which is both on her site and in her cookbook. It was warm, cozy, and filling, but just not really a looker. Since I had the day off on Remembrance Day, I […]

Updated with a new picture January 12, 2017 Dear Future Byn circa Fall 2014, Hey! What’s up! So you got really excited and bought a spaghetti squash at the Farmer’s Market, huh? Amazing! Instead of doing what you did in Fall 2013, which was spend an hour Googling spaghetti squash recipes because you couldn’t remember […]
