Roasted Heirloom Tomato Pie

When tomatoes are in season and at their peak of deliciousness, I try to use them in as many ways as possible. My favorite are the heirloom variety, especially those larger red ones that have more flesh on the inside, meaning they have a lot less seeds and jelly than you’d find in a regular…

Extra-Juicy Chicken Burgers

I know that every time I post a recipe I say “IT’S THE BEST!!!” and these burgers really are! They’re the poultry burger equivalent to my smash burgers which are hard to match! Let’s face it, the best chicken burgers we know are delicious fried chicken ones. I’m not talking about those. When you want…

Obscenely Chocolatey Chocolate Cookies

Since Easter, which was cancelled, I have been craving chocolate; specifically Cadbury mini-eggs. Seems like after the toilet paper, lysol wipes, hair dye and flour shortages the obvious next things to go were Cadbury mini eggs of course! Weird. Anyway, this post has nothing to do with mini-eggs but it does have a lot to…

Turmeric-Coconut Curry with Pork and Greek Yogurt

The dish has everything! – different flavours and textures; soft, crunchy and creamy. It’s warm and cool from the yogurt, bright with citrus and hot too, if you care to add some chili pepper. It’s one of the more satisfying dishes I’ve had in a while. Maybe next time I’ll try ground chicken instead of…

BA’s Smash Burgers

So what’s a smash burger? Well, ever been to Shake Shack? ‘Cause they’ve got smash burgers and after I tried one for the first time, a couple of years back on a trip to the US, it changed my hamburger eating life forever. Now I’m obsessed with this style of burger. The patty is thin…

Winter Crunch Salad

A delicious robust salad that can totally withstand dressing and become even more delicious as it sits so it’s an ideal make-ahead recipe! Each ingredient offers its own flavour and contrasting notes; the bright tang from the apples, spice from the dijon, toastiness from the seeds and nuttiness of the parmesan, to name a few….

The Juiciest Brined Grilled Chicken

Brining, this is new to me. I mean, I know that capers are brined, cheese and and Turkey too…. I know I like it but I’d never done it! What does it do, how do you do it? Thankfully, it’s a no brainer and you’ll never go back to grilling chicken breast without brining it first.

Bao Buns at Home

How would I describe a Bao bun to you if you’ve never had one? I’d say that it’s light, fluffy, pillowy, a little moist and highly pleasurable to eat! It also doesn’t hurt that Bao buns are best paired with fatty meats and sweet and spicy flavours, such as sweet and crispy-skinned Peking duck, pork…
