We recently invited a couple for dinner for the first time. Sometimes, that first meal you share with someone can cause a little anxiety. You wonder what their favourite foods are, if they have allergies, intolerances or dislikes. Are they okay with some spice, or are they partial to their food being plainer? This particular…… Continue reading to meat or not to meat ~ chicken tikka masala and chana masala
So…the bullet journal thing…it’s not going as well as I’d hoped. I forgot to set up the next week before the next week came. Naturally. I did meal plan, though. This worked wonderfully the first week. This week….well, not so much. Partly, this was due to having company. We did a couple of impromptu seafood…… Continue reading lunchtime ~ salad rolls

If silver hake is new to you, as well, it is described as “a close relative of the cod” by thisfish.info.

Gluten-free? Check. Dairy-free? Check. Yesterday, we had some guests over that have some dietary restrictions. I don’t mind cooking this way as it is not entirely new to me. My dairy-free girl’s diet is, well, dairy free. She has a very sensitive tummy and we have tried to determine the underlying issues with the…… Continue reading no bake chocolate cookies
