Sabich Recipe

On my trip to Israel, I discovered a ton of delicious food! But it wasn’t until my last day in Tel Aviv that I discovered the ultimate Israeli street food: the Sabich. A Sabich is a pita stuffed with delicious goodies – eggplant, potatoes, eggs, herbs, veggies, mango sauce – and while it’s meant to be eaten on the go, it is one of the messiest thing I’ve ever eaten. And I absolutely LOVE messy food.

I’ve been dreaming of Israel and wanted to make this Sabich recipe so my husband could know what I’ve been raving about – and he agrees, it’s absolutely amazing. The warm pita stuffed with fried eggplant, hearty potatoes, hard-boiled eggs that give it a creamy texture, and the freshness of a cucumber-tomato salad, with a spiciness throughout! This Sabich Recipe is just what I needed to curb my wanderlust… well, maybe just for now! View Post

Making Lunch Fun with Dempster's Honey Wheat Bread

School lunches have always been a struggle with me and my kids. ALWAYS. There are times when I put a LOT of effort into school lunches, and I’ll make pasta and rice dishes and really good meals! And there are other times where I go for a “tapas” style lunch – meaning an assortment of finger foods that I found in my fridge and pantry (think crackers, hummus, veggies, fruits, cheese…).

Either way, my kids prefer variety – too many days of the same thing and they revolt and will. not. eat. lunch. I try to alternate between a warm dish, some sushi, a wrap, or a sandwich – but a plain sandwich will NOT do. For some reason, my children believe that a plain sandwich is no where near as yummy as a “cute” sandwich.  View Post

Grown-Up Grilled Cheese with Honey

This grilled cheese is all grown up! Filled with a creamy mixture of Gruyere and Fontina cheeses, a sprinkling of basil and a drizzle of sweet honey, it’s a sophisticated treat for lovers of sweet and savoury!

I love to cook, but I don’t always have time to make recipes with 90 minute prep and cooking times. We eat out more often than I like, but I really try to make the effort to provide my family with nutritious foods – scratch that, actually! To be honest, I make an effort for my kids and make sure they have nutritious meals, and my husband and I are left on the backburner! …Oops. View Post

Mulled Wine Slow Cooker Recipe

I remember the first time I tried mulled wine… a few years ago, J & I went to Montreal for New Years Eve. It was a bit of a luxurious weekend – we stayed at The W Hotel, got all dressed up, had a 5-star dinner, and danced all night long… But every single time we stepped outdoors to explore the city, we instantly regretted our decision. It was freezing cold. With temperatures hitting -30°C (for you Americans that’s -22ºF) we would race from the Metro to the Cafe and back, upon my insistence, of course, that we explore the city… View Post
