In the past, I’ve always had crappy results when I’ve tried to cook a whole chicken in the slow cooker. The bird would always be overcooked, stringy, mushy, and dry. Super icky. Last night, I cooked a whole chicken in my slow cooker and it was AMAZING! I‘ll never prepare a whole chicken any other way again. Yes, that was a hyperbolic statement but I’m sticking with it.

I’ve discovered that I can bake something that is far more nourishing and delicious than a bar that’s been sitting on a grocery store shelf for a few months. These Chocolate Chip Coconut Banana Protein Bars combine an irresistible trifecta of flavors into one delicious bite.

Not only is this recipe super simple with only 7 ingredients, but it’s also EGGLESS! So pop in some carob chips or other dairy free chocolate and you’ve got yourself a stack of…Vegan pancakes!

This was my very first attempt to make fudge. Fudge recipes have always intimidated me because I have no experience with candy thermometers and “soft ball stages”. I searched for a recipe that was not difficult and didn’t require any of those “scary” elements.

The literal translation of kalua, is “to bake in the ground oven,” known in Hawaii as an imu. Having kalua directly from an imu is a special treat, and unless you have friends with connections, the only way you can enjoy it at home, is to buy kalua-like pork from a grocery store.

I have such great memories of amatriciana sauce in Italy – friends and I used to frequent a mom and pop pizzeria in the town we lived in as one of our favorite haunts.

I played a little game in my head called connect the dots of random foods - duck > duck in orange sauce > beets with orange zest > orange zest and fennel > needs a little kick....sauteed beet greens with chili flakes! Yes, things like this happen in my head...and off I went!

if you are a slave to the deviled eggs like I was, liberate your self from the plain ole stuffed eggs and make a deviled egg spread instead. Your kingdom will roar too.

Asparagus should be picked the day the shoots come out of the soil, otherwise they quickly grown into leafy ferns. Despite what you or my children think you know about asparagus, they are delicious!

Sweet, spicy and savory, candied jalapeno rings are way too easy to eat on just about everything. The result was gobsmackingly, head-spinningly, brain-addlingly delicious.

I decided to turn the regular tapioca pudding into a chocolate tapioca pudding with cocoa powder, which I already had on hand. Then I decided to add a bit of cinnamon and a dash of cayenne to give it a mild, Mexican-chocolate accent.

I had high hopes for these bunnies. I ended up making the recipe twice, the first batch didn't quite look like bunnies, more like lumps. I was completely bummed, but, persevered.

I ate my roasted grapes in a salad with crumbled goat cheese and spinach, which was perhaps the most simple and delicious lunch I've had in months. I knew the grapes would go perfectly with goat cheese, but the oil and moisture from the grapes canceled out the need for any additional dressing, too!

Last weekend I decided on a whim that it was, without a doubt, the official start of BBQ season. It was a beautiful day and we flung open the doors on to the balcony, letting sun stream into the flat, fired up the grill and had a bunch of mates over to devour what I rather modestly titled a ‘Mexican Feast’.

Well smack my hinny and call me Shirley, because I am now a caper lover! Never thought I’d see the day. These little oddities turned my world upside down and I couldn’t be more pleased about it.

It's probably a cold day where most of you are today... at least it is here. This is the perfect dish to make on a day like this. It's a little time consuming, but it's not hard and the finished product is full of flavor, spicy (duh, I made it), and makes perfect leftovers for lunch the next day or even another dinner the next night.

This recipe is easy, but it does take some time. It’s the perfect thing to make on a lazy Sunday. You just have to remember on your busy Saturday to put the beans in to soak.

Something about the combination of the nutty browned butter and the sweet marshmallows formed a great, complex, caramel-like flavor, and then the bite of that melty dark chocolate just tied the whole thing together.

Today's post is about a warm quinoa salad I made with lemon juice and toasted almonds. The recipe is similar to that of Indian lemon rice. Instead of the rice, I am using quinoa here.

The siren call of the nuts and chocolate led directly to a revival of my favourite childhood treat: DQ’s Peanut Buster Parfait, also known as vanilla ice cream nestled between layers of warm chocolate fudge sauce and salty roasted peanuts. Foodgasm, right there.
