Baked Brie with Cranberry Sauce (Perfect Holiday Appetizer)

Cranberry Brie Dip With Flaky Roll Bites |

What comes to mind when you imagine a cheese dip? I’ll tell you what I thought about it way before I stumbled upon this recipe. That creamy, orange-colored starchy cheese dip for nachos and crackers that you get at stadiums and boozy parties. The bottled kind with lots of artificial flavors that would get your tongue desperate for water later on.  That was before I knew that there was a fancier, Christmassy version of this which was luscious, pretty, and actually sophisticated. This cheese dip is made with nutty and tangy brie cheese (plus a bit of cheddar) that’s baked to gooey...

Best Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe

Classic Stuffing  |

Discover how easy it is to put together a delicious, warm stuffing, that you’ll never go back to the boxed kind. Yes, prepackaged stuffing tastes fine and is an absolute breeze to cook, but there is no comparison once you try making this homemade version.  With home-cooked food, you are always in control and get to choose the ingredients that go into your food. (I’ve even stopped eating mac and cheese from the box – here’s how to make it at home.)  Speaking of ingredients, this traditional Thanksgiving stuffing recipe uses the most quintessential ingredients. It’s made with bread,...

Easy Turkey Cranberry Sliders

Holiday Dinner Leftover cranberry sliders |

So, it’s the day after Thanksgiving, and much to nobody’s surprise – you have leftover turkey. Happens to us all the time! Especially, when there’s a spread of other yummy,  tantalizing dishes on the table.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays for good reasons: incredible food, family, and friends!  What I don’t like, though, is the food wastage. To overcome this, we have now gotten into the habit of pre-planning our Thanksgiving leftovers. Nope, I do not mean pre-planning the meals (though it is such a good habit – read about it here).  We plan what to do with...

Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Bacon and Pomegranates

Pomegranates with  bacon roasted brussels sprouts |

I remember growing up, I was a big desserts and candied yams girl at my holiday dinners. I always remember the one Christmas where my jaw dropped when I had oven-roasted Brussels sprouts for the first time. It was crazy good. I couldn’t believe that vegetables could be this delicious.  In my take on this holiday classic, I have added crispy roasted bacon and its fats that make everything better, too.  Now this recipe is one way to enjoy vegetables, and I mean REALLY enjoy them… not just tolerate them to meet our daily fiber intake. Even the pickiest eaters and vegetable haters...

Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Parmesan & Garlic Butter

Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Parmesan & Garlic Butter |

I’m going back to basics with this roasted sweet potato recipe, you guys. The protagonist of today’s recipe is sweet potatoes. The orange kind – not to be confused with yam, my friends. Incorporating sweet potatoes into our diet does wonders for our bodies too. These root veggies can boost our immunity, promote digestive health, and protect our eyes among other benefits. Something delicious and healthy? Double win!  There are so many amazing ways to cook sweet potatoes: mashed, julienned into sweet potato fries, atop a hearty shepherd’s pie, and stuffed with black beans. Today, we’ll...

Easy Cranberry Rosemary Chicken

Cranberry Rosemary Chicken |

Especially at Christmas time, there’s nothing like decorating the house with stockings and wrapping gifts for the Christmas tree. The cherry on the top has got to be the food on the table, though. Here’s one dish I’m making for Christmas this year: cranberry rosemary chicken with a maple glaze.  It is no secret that cranberry and rosemary go hand in hand as one of the most unique and sophisticated holiday flavors. From rosemary-infused cranberry vodka to cranberry rosemary bread pudding, this is a combination that will always guarantee satisfaction. I love how the tart cranberries...

Best Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Recipe

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna low carb lasagna |

Do you like lasagna? I’ve had all types of lasagna, from those inexpensive Italian restaurants to the frozen type that they sell in supermarkets and convenience stores. Each one of those experiences has given me the joy of eating comfort food which is just so flavorful and rich. However, later on, I end up feeling bloated – like I ate way too much. Is that just me or have any of you felt the same way?  Anyway, that had been my fate with lasagna, until I came across the idea of using spaghetti squash to make lasagna. “What is spaghetti squash?” you ask.  Great question! I love...

Pumpkin Rolls

Fall is upon us, and that means pumpkin-flavored everything, from pumpkin spice lattes to pumpkin pies. I wanted to add to my Thanksgiving menu a classic pumpkin roll recipe.  Some people call it a Swiss roll, a roulade, or simply a jelly roll. Each slice is a layer of sponge cake filled with luscious velvety cream (sometimes flavored buttercream) and rolled up. You’ll find these in tons of different flavors, like plain vanilla, chocolate, earl gray tea, and matcha, even.  With the cake batter, I made sure the pumpkin flavor would really come through. The secret ingredient is a...

Oven-Baked Dijon Mustard Salmon

Dijon Salmon Dish |

Whenever I am in a pinch, I know I can rely on seafood recipes.  Fish, prawns, and mussels cook very quickly and all they need are some basic ingredients and add-ins to taste amazing. Seafood is so versatile: it can be deep-fried, baked, grilled, steamed, smoked, or fashioned into a creamy chowder. There’s more to seafood than just traditional fish and chips.  You could even eat it raw. I can’t say no to a fresh plate of sushi!  Whichever method you go for, seafood always makes for a sophisticated choice for any meal. I’ve got a new salmon recipe I’ve been putting on...

Curry Roasted Cauliflower and Sweet Potatoes

Curry roasted fall salad |

Last Thursday was just like any other busy work day. I was running from a Zoom call at home to another meeting, and then to a recipe photoshoot session for the blog (which turned out to be really fun!).  I had packed this salad in my bag for lunch and as I was microwaving this in the studio, my teammates looked at me and exclaimed, “Cassandra, what is that?! It smells amazing!” That was a good sign for this new salad I was testing out. It’s always so daunting to try new, daring recipes, but if people around me respond positively, then it’s a go!  All I did was toss together...

Easy Baked Turmeric Chicken

Turmeric Chicken |

Indian food never fails to amaze me. To be specific, I’m a huge fan of chicken tikka masala, palak paneer, and turmeric fish curry. Every bite just brings me closer and closer to culinary heaven.  It’s a blend of spices, coconut milk, garlic, onions, and so many more ingredients. I’m still trying to learn how to make chicken tikka masala at home and every time I go to make it, I just end up getting distracted by the array of spices. If you are a pro at Indian cooking, hats off to you! Turmeric is one of the essential spices in Indian cooking. In its natural form, turmeric looks...
