What’s For Dinner

Delicious Steak Salad With Yogurt Dressing

Here’s the thing about barbecues: they’re fun and delicious, but can sometimes get pretty unhealthy. All that meat, burger and hot dog buns, potato dishes, beer… not exactly the most heart-friendly!  But Cassandra, I have salad on the side at my barbecue parties! 😉 Sure, but are you really filling up on boring salad greens when the grill’s going? My tip to make that salad more interesting? Make it an appetizing steak salad with yogurt dressing!  This steak salad features scrumptiously marinated, thinly sliced steak atop a bed of fresh vegetables complete with cheese and a...

How to Grill the Perfect Hamburgers

Look no further - here’s a recipe for a mouthwatering gourmet-style hamburger that you can handcraft at home. It features a juicy beef and pork patty, marble cheddar, pickles, onions, and garlic, laced with fragrant Italian herbs.  Stop right here if you’re hungry because this post will get your stomach growling even louder!  Burgers have always been my thing, and I can never say no to a meaty, juicy grilled burger that’s slightly burnt and covered in melted cheddar cheese.

Healthy Turkey Burgers With Spinach, Feta & Tzatziki

These spinach feta turkey burgers will transport you straight to Greece! They’re a classic family favorite at our birthday dinners, what with juicy patties and buttery burger buns. Slather the burgers generously with a refreshing, creamy tzatziki sauce made of yogurt, lemon and herbs and voila!  This recipe is a tribute to Greek cuisine which is rich with cheeses, meat, olive oil, herbs, yogurt and citrus flavors. Still, Greek recipes are quite balanced, providing the nutrients our bodies need!  These burgers are far from those at any fast food joints. I try to avoid highly...

Easy Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Growing up, I was surrounded by loads of Mediterranean food influences. My beautiful Grandma would always make the best dishes from scratch, and now that I’m older, I realize that I was incredibly lucky to have had someone cook for me.  In Mediterranean cooking, we use a lot of flavorful plant-based foods like legumes, grains, and herbs. But, we also love our sauces and dressings.  People tend to think of Mediterranean food like Italian, but it actually is a melting pot of European, Middle Eastern, Asian, and African cuisines. This Mediterranean pasta salad is healthy, appetizing,...

Best Canadian Caesar Cocktail

If you could be any cocktail, what would you be? For me, it’s gotta be a Canadian Caesar. Why? It’s funky, it’s spicy, and a unique fusion of the best things!  I love myself a Canadian Caesar cocktail - always have and always will. It is our country’s national drink, after all, and it’s perfect for Canada Day which is just around the corner!  Walk into any bar, order a Caesar, and get ready to be mind blown by this funky fusion of clamato juice, vodka, sauces, and toppings. Or better yet, make it yourself with the best recipe below.  Oh, and in case you were wondering –...

Easy Bruschetta Recipe

One of the reasons why I enjoy summer (besides barbecues and sunshine) is because of all the produce that is in-season. Melon and berries often get the spotlight as summer fruits, but think about all the fresh tomatoes! This fruit (we aren’t going to debate on whether tomatoes are fruits or vegetables!) is perfect for one of my favorite appetizers: bruschetta.  Bruschetta — a traditional Italian antipasto — is essentially a tomato mixture on grilled bread slices and is great as an appetizer, snack, side dish or even on its own. They look fancy, but are so easy to make!  With...

Healthy Cauliflower White Pizza (with step-by-step instructions)

Through the years dabbling with culinary arts, here’s my thesis: Cauliflower works the hardest.  You can bake it, make soup from it, air-fry it, mash it, and even make rice from it. This vegetable is definitely versatile, and when you want to make a low-carb pizza, cauliflower will happily rise to the occasion.  Keep reading for my tried-and-tested cauliflower pizza crust recipe plus how to make a white, cheesy topping.  This vegetarian pizza is a timeless companion - you can have it for breakfast, lunch, tea or dinner. The blend of cheeses, herbs, and pesto? Perfection....

Can’t Forget Breakfast

Easy German Apple Puff Pancake

This apple puff pancake tastes like a frosty autumn weekend and is a comforting breakfast staple from Germany! Here is my modern adaptation of the traditional German apple pancake, or apfelpfannkuchen.  It’s family-friendly, so adults can enjoy it with brewed coffee while the little ones can enjoy it with a warm cup of tea or milk.  Recipe Origins In the early 1900s, it was popularized in America by a diner in Seattle, Washington. Eventually, the apfelpfannkuchen came to be known as Dutch babies in America. Not much is known about why they’re called Dutch baby pancakes, but one...

Quick & Easy Blueberry Pancakes (The Fluffiest!) 

I made a trip to the farmer’s market last weekend, ready to welcome a warm Summer's day. I was greeted by the prettiest vegetables there, but the thing that really caught my eyes was the blueberries.  Sitting proudly in a pile were cute tiny blueberries, all proudly handpicked by these independent farmers. Of course, I thought to myself. Blueberries are in season, and that can only mean one thing: HELLO, blueberry pancakes!  I love this recipe for pancakes loaded with blueberries. Every bite promises a burst of sweet and sour blueberries accompanied by a buttery pancake and...
