Mushroom & Chard Quesadillas

This post goes out to my friend Weedy. She was telling me at Christmas how she loves Planet Byn for easy, weeknight dinner inspo, and name-checked these Thai Sloppy Joes as one of her favourites. I remember thinking I needed to blog more of these types of recipes, but then here we are in May, and […]

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 […]

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, […]

Goat Cheese & Arugula Pizza

February 18, 2014 Dinner

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 […]

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 […]

Butternut Squash Gratin, Savoury Bacon Biscuits + Thanksgiving 2013

October 21, 2013 Bread
Butternut Squash Gratin

  Taking a look back in my archives it seems like I only contribute dessert to Thanksgiving dinner, so I’m making sure to blog about the sides I brought this year, because they were AMAZING. The thing with my family is that they just want the regulars around the table, and are sometimes suspicious when […]

Butternut Squash & Black Bean Burrito Bowls

Butternut Squash & Black Bean Burrito Bowl

  One of my goals for September was obviously not blogging to cook more real dinners at home. Once my big project launched at work at the end of June, I was busy having fun in July & August, and wasn’t really doing a good job of meal planning and cooking. After a super relaxing […]

Crispy Chickpea Bites

August 7, 2012 Vegetarian

When I need to reset a little bit, and try to get my eating in check (like say, after a full day of eating sugar), the first blog I go to for ideas is Oh She Glows. The recipes on Angela’s blog are all vegan, and I swear you feel healthier just reading them. I have a small […]
