Easy Skillet Potatoes and Veggies

For a long time I dismissed potatoes as being in the same category as white bread or other starchy carbs. They were a “filler” food that I should probably avoid on a regular basis — save potatoes for special occasions. I can’t really think of any potato-based special occasions, so luckily I changed my attitude […]

Tender Vegan Meatballs (Even Meat-Eaters Will Love)

I’ve written before about how my parents are eating vegan these days. It still amazes me that they made this switch. What I didn’t know, was that my mom was missing eating really filling, hearty dinners. It’s really easy to forget that everyone has their own style of eating. I haven’t eaten meat in over […]

Pasta and Chickpea Stew

There are probably infinite ways to combine pasta, tomatoes, and beans, and I do intend to try them all. Today’s recipe is another brick in the wall for that particular project: a classic Italian stew called Pasta e Ceci (literally just pasta with chickpeas, but it sounds fancy if you use the Italian name). This particular […]

15 Julia Child Quotes To Keep You In Love With Cooking

Ah, Julia Child. A marvellous woman with a passion and efficiency for cooking to be admired. I don’t think I’d eat half the things she cooked, but that’s besides the point I was introduced to her show, The French Chef, rather late compared to other people. It was while visiting my parents, and as they […]

Roasted Broccoli and a Lemon Tahini Dressing

Broccoli was one of my favourite foods as a kid. I think I was destined to be a vegetarian. And you know, there’s still nothing wrong with a lovely steamed stalk of broccoli. It’s a wonderful side dish. But I do like trying new things occasionally. As anyone that follows my Instagram probably knows, I […]

Sea Salt and Rosemary Almond Crackers

Making almond crackers is almost hilariously simple. Seriously, if I had known before how easy it was, I would have been making them ages ago. Rather than drying out to be completely crunchy, these crackers retain a nice tenderness while still snapping off with a bite. Sort of like eating a whole almond, actually! I […]

5 Exercises to Destroy Impostor Syndrome

Impostor syndrome. Doesn’t matter what field you’re in — everyone seems to have some experience with it, especially if you’re young or new to an industry. What is impostor syndrome? It’s basically a deeply ingrained self-doubt and belief that every one has more experience than you. That for some reason, even though you’re qualified and […]

Coconut Cream and Tomato Rosé Sauce

I’m a little obsessed with rich, creamy tomato sauces. That’s rather tricky when you’re trying to avoid cooking with butter, milk, or cream. What’s a pasta lover to do? I decided to take a stab at it when I was reminiscing about a recipe involving a baked risotto square sitting in a tomato rosé sauce […]

Breathing Exercises for Travel Anxiety (And Other Anxiety, Too!)

A breath of fresh air — the phrase means something new, something needed, and something unexpected. Those are also three words I would use to describe my experience with travel anxiety. It plagued me as a teenager. I passed up going on a trip to Spain in high school over nerves for the flight. Now, […]
