mediterranean pancetta pasta

I think it’s about time I posted a savoury recipe around here.  This mediterranean pancetta pasta is pretty healthy and you can even make it more so by eliminating the pancetta but why would you want to do that???  Pancetta equals protein and protein is important so it’s a no brainer.  We all know that pancetta is fancy bacon so that means it just makes everything better.  The feta cheese gives it a great creaminess and saltiness that is just right that makes this mediterranean pancetta pasta just perfect and a total must.

healthy chocolate blueberry cookies

I’m all for healthier versions of classics but a healthy chocolate chip cookie just doesn’t sound right because chocolate chip cookies have to be bad for you to taste good, right? Honestly, I love a good chocolate chip cookie but this healthy version really does taste pretty amazing. My husband even said it’s his favourite cookie! Full disclosure: M is Spanish so chocolate chip cookies aren’t a homegrown classic so he doesn’t have that nostalgic link to it but he’s always honest (sometimes brutally so) which means these healthy chocolate blueberry cookies are pretty fabulous.

diy: love squared snood

I’ve been gone a long, long, time and I’m so happy to be back!  Life was pretty crazy the last few months and thankfully mostly for good reasons which meant that I just couldn’t sit my butt down long enough to write a proper post.  Oh, how I missed this and I’m hoping you’ll come back with me.   I’ve come up with a pattern for an easy snood that can be knit up pretty quickly and it’s a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for that someone special in your life whether it’s your other half, BFF, or your first friend ever (aka: brother or sister).   Continue reading

classic cheesecake

I’ve obviously documented my love for cupcakes here, here, and here however I also worship all forms of cheesecake.  I think cheesecake is the perfect dessert to bring to a party or to serve at your next dinner shindig because I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like cheesecake (and those that don’t like cheesecake have never actually tried cheesecake, trust me). Continue reading

chocolate caramel tart

I’ve been MIA for a few weeks but I was in vacation mode and I really wasn’t very inspired with blog ideas and I wasn’t in the kitchen that much but I’m BACK!  This chocolate caramel tart is amazing and the perfect dessert for a special occasion because it’s very sophisticated but between you and me, it’s pretty simple to make.  It does have a few steps but they’re easy and it comes together easily so I definitely think it’s worth a try.

snickers cupcakes

It was my birthday this week and I always make cupcakes so that I can blow out my birthday candles and make my wish (my wish is the most important part and a birthday tradition I can’t miss out on).  Of course our small family of two isn’t going to eat  two dozen cupcakes even though we totally could but we’d die of the remorse we’d feel and of the sugar overdose we’d get in the process so I always take cupcakes to work for my colleagues to enjoy. Continue reading
