Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Gravy

🎁 LG,BE's 12 Days of Christmas🎁 DAY 10 Have you ever wondered what the reality of writing a food blog is reaaaaally like? I test and pivot around obstacles that are bound to happen in the kitchen so that you don't have to endure those yourselves. Although I'd like to think I am the Barefoot [...]

Kopytka with Sautéed Mushrooms, Kielbasa and Shredded Sprouts // Polish Potato Dumplings

☃ LG,BE's 12 Days of Christmas☃ DAY 8 So story time: the plan was to make Babcia's pierogi this year. I set my mind to it at the beginning of November when I started thinking of what recipes I wanted to post this year for my 12 Days of LG,BE and pierogi were at the [...]

Cioppino (Fisherman’s Stew)

🎅LG,BE's 12 Days of Christmas🎅 DAY 7 This one is for all my seafood lover's out there. A relatively quick stew that can be made within an hour, that doesn't break the bank, but definitely makes you feel like you're dining under some twinkly lights in San Francisco at night. The nice thing is that [...]

Seared Scallops with Brown Butter

🎁 LG,BE's 12 Days of Christmas🎁 DAY 4 Last year for 12 Days of LG,BE, I sprinkled in a few different fancy schmancy proteins since it is after all the holidays...but also because I just love trying new seafood dishes and this one has become very popular for me at home as of late. We [...]

Coconut Chicken Curry

I don't know why it took me so long to give into the flavour of curry but I'm glad I did. Growing up in my household, and for the most part all of our family friends' households, curry was not a spice or a dish that was ever served. Poles are not really into using [...]

Penne alla Vodka

Who is looking for comfort food right about now? Something in a bowl, something easy to curl up on the couch with, something that isn't complicated but yields the most delicious results... listen, I hear you. Last year I shared two of my all-time favourites; the BEST Bolognese and Creamy Butter Chicken. Thiiiis year, my [...]

Sausage and Quinoa Stuffed Butternut Squash

Thanksgiving is over but autumn continues on in this kitchen. I go through these phases of eating too much butternut squash in early September and then I have to put it away for a while because I know that I'll want it all over again closer to Thanksgiving....and what do you know, I haven't changed [...]

Spicy Chicken Couscous Bowl

Ahhh, it's that time of year where I want to indulge on heavy comfort food as soon as the weather dips below 20 degrees! But, that doesn't mean that I can't find a dinner option that will keep me nourished and satisfied by using a lot of clean ingredients and is yet, still considered a [...]

Baked Hummus Pasta

Hi guys, I think this may be my new favourite pasta recipe as of late. It's a spin on the ever so popular Tik Tok feta and tomato pasta but completely without dairy and honestly, you can barely tell the difference because the end result is just as creamy and delicious. INGREDIENTS Cooked pasta of [...]

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 [...]
