Crispy, Delicious Brussel Sprouts

Growing up, I hated brussel sprouts. And I mean H-A-T-E-D!

My aunt would always make them for us.  She would boil them and they would be this soft, tasteless lump of green sitting in my plate. the kids would all come together to devise a plan to make these things go away.

This recipe is NOT for my aunt’s mushy brussel sprouts!

Drunken Tequila Lime Chicken

As summer has officially begun, it marks the start of grilling season.

I am always looking for different recipes to try and this one definitely beats the typical barbecue sauce chicken that most of us gravitate towards, only because it’s easy and doesn’t require much thinking.

Skinny Creamy Mushroom Pasta

I came up with a recipe of my own that uses skim milk for the sauce and tastes just as good as the ones using heavy cream.  This way, I can eat all the creamy pasta I want without all the guilt!  (Okay, maybe not, but you know what I mean!)

Easy Mushroom Puff Pastry Tart

I used to be afraid of any kind of pastry and shy away from making it because I always thought it would be hard work.  But then I found ready made puff pastry in the frozen section of my local grocery store.  I bought a box thinking I would try it out once – if it fails, it fails, but at least I tried.

I didn’t fail!

You can’t fail. 

These are just. That. Easy.

Simple and Tasty Grilled Tomato Toast

While I love myself a good avocado toast, the cooler weather has me craving something rich and savoury.
