Shepherd's Pie

A classic shepherd's pie recipe made with ground beef. Tastes just like my father made, and his grandmother before him.

Is it weird that I start craving comfort food exactly when the temperature gets warmer?

You'd think I would be making these comforting, stick to your bones kind of foods (like oatmeal and shepherd's pie) in the cold of winter. When turning on the oven or stove and having a hot meal would be a nice change from the cold weather outside.

But no. I crave them when I am supposed to be getting ready for swimsuit season. Great...

Hey guys! I made a recipe with protein powder again!

Honestly, I am finding every excuse to bake or make something different with this protein powder I bought. It tastes amazing, but I can't drink it by itself mixed with water. I just can't. It clumps, and overall it just doesn't mix well in liquid.

Last week it was these peanut butter and chocolate protein bars. This week, I was craving cookies. So here we go.

Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal Recipe

I have been obsessed with oatmeal lately.

Am I too late on the oatmeal train? I mean, the weather is finally starting to heat up, and all I can think of in the morning is warm bowls of oatmeal.

Just watch. All my summer recipes will be soups and stews. I am so backwards.

But in order to make my oatmeal resemble a spring/summer like feel, I am opting for a strawberries and cream oatmeal. Because the strawberries in my local produce stores are looking gooood!

Long weekend!!

Whenever there is any type of holiday, you just know that I head straight to my kitchen and bake. Not that I'm not always baking anyways. I just stock up on the goodies when I can find the time.

Something I haven't made in a while is fudge. Why? Who knows. But now that it's starting to heat up here in Toronto, I needed something that won't heat up my kitchen. And fudge is perfect for that.

Lemon and Garlic Salmon

My favourite lemon garlic salmon recipe. Baked in the oven for 15 minutes, this is the perfect weeknight meal.

Lemon and Garlic Salmon Recipe

Ever since I made my maple salmon recipe, I have been obsessed with buying and cooking salmon.

But since the maple salmon was the only salmon recipe I have ever made, that was what I was making. Week after week. Month after month.

I thought it was time for a change. Enter this baked lemon garlic salmon.

The first step to working out is getting the right snacks. Am I right?

Or am I just putting off the actual working out process? Swimsuit season is approaching, and my gym membership is gathering dust. Somebody, give me some inspiration!

If not inspiration, at least give me some of these protein bars. Because dayyyum, these things are GOOD!
