Grilled Peach and Burrata Salad

If you've never grilled a fruit before....I think you need to start this summer. Grilled fruit hits different -- it's a mixture of that char smoky flavour, paired with a naturally sweet bite, and to throw in an even different flavour profile ... throw a little sea salt in there too. *chef's kiss* and if [...]

Homemade Caesar Dressing

I know it's easier to just buy Caesar dressing but my goodness, this version from scratch tastes noooothing like store-bought, and it really doesn't take that much effort to make either. Highly recommend as a dressing, but also works as a french fry dip, or a sandwich spread (omg, just thought of that and died [...]

Tomato Flatbread

During the winter, I couldn't care less about using fresh tomatoes in cooking. But the second the sun starts to shine a little brighter and the produce starts to look 1000x better than it did in November, I always gravitate towards tomatoes. And the funny thing is, tomatoes aren't even in season yet! But after [...]

Bruschetta Pizza with Balsamic Glaze

Since posting about the almighty green pizza last summer, I've been on the hunt for a reliable dough that settles my pizza satisfaction and costs less than buying pre-made flatbreads or dough from the grocery store. Pizza is like a chef's playground--there's too many options for ingredients that will make the perfect pie, yet also [...]

Lemon Ricotta Crab Ravioli

Is there anything as exciting as eating pasta that YOU made from scratch??? I get that most people haven't actually experienced this and to be perfectly honest, I only got that thrill from ordering pasta at a restaurant (pre-covid days, lol remember those?) BUT NOW, your favourite blogger received KitchenAid pasta attachments as her Christmas [...]

Chocolate & Raspberry “Trifles”

12 Days of Christmas with LG,BE Day 11: When I think of trifles, I think of the food queen herself -- Nigella Lawson -- explaining the components of an authentic English trifle and how she made it seem like the most perfected masterpiece of all the British desserts that exist. But trifle takes time.. and [...]

Filet Mignon with Peppercorn Cream Sauce

12 Days of Christmas with LG,BE Day 10: An evening winter grill, anyone? I got really luxe with my lobster fettuccine earlier this week, but I also figured it's pretty fair to share a luxe 'turf' option too. In my boyfriend's opinion? That always means FILET + since I'm the 'mastermind behind flavour' according to [...]
