What if you came home for lunch one day and in between reheating leftovers and hurrying back to work you realized that except that last slice of quiche you just inhaled, there is nothing to eat for supper? No problem, you might say, just call in some takeout or go out for a meal. Now, […]

Easy No-Yeast Pizza

In my last post (shamefully, over 2 weeks ago) I lamented the loss of my beloved, easy pizza recipe. It was such a life saver whenever I had not enough brain matter left alive to figure out supper. Coming to think of it, let’s take a moment to ponder why I developed such a dependence […]

Pizza, come home!

Two weeks ago I made this pizza. It was good. It was so good, and so easy to make that I made it again last week. In fact, it was so good and so easy to make that I planned on serving it to my guests on new year’s eve, confident in my ability to prepare this […]

Finally. A recipe interesting enough to share. I planned to tell you how I’m feeling all better now but then I managed to jam my lower back rolling out off bed. How pathetic is that? Now I need help putting  my socks on. So romantic. No wonder my poor husband falls all over himself trying […]

I swear I do not own Fenugreek, Kaffir lime leaves, green Cardamom, black cumin seeds or any other substance you need wikipedia’s  help to spell out. What I do own as of last week is an easy-peasy (lentils are so hard to rhyme) lentil dahl (inspired, I have no claim of authenticity) dish that cooks itself […]

Whole Wheat Banana Bread

This is one simple Banana bread to make. It always comes out right. It does not have gazillion pounds of butter in it and it contained 50% whole wheat flour. The crust has almost a crunch to it and it keeps on the kitchen counter on in the fridge for a few days, without getting […]

Microwave Apricot Jam

This jam practically sustained my mother in law through a whole weekend of wrangling babysitting my two little scoundrels treasures, while the hubby and I took off to ogle watch Bon Jovi in Winnipeg. All. By. Ourselves. In the scope of  a mere 72 hours we came dangerously close to missing our plane(s) (and thus loose everything) due to […]
