A Bryan Creation – Apple Fritter Sandwich

This time, I tried it.


I’ve posted a recipe from my friend Bryan on here a while back, it was a random trip to starbucks that turned into some odd sandwich.  But this was something he planned, and has actually had before.

Beer Thursday!! Britannia Sushi



We haven’t gone to a real Beer Thursday in forever. But we were finally able to and quickly decided on sushi, as it’s too hot for pub grub.

Spicy Peanut Noodles with Chicken

It's just you and me noodles. (And Michael) But mostly you an' me.


You know I love spicy, asian-y, cilantro-y, peanut-y, whatever else-y can describe my tastes. This is a dish I’ve started to make much more often because it’s just so easy. And I have not just one, but TWO ways to make this! Golly! (there’s way more ways than two, I might have lied)

7 Facts Blogger Game

I looked everywhere for a sesame street reference, but this will have to do instead.

Well I’ve been tagged so I guess I have to participate! 😛

Noodle Box!

Or as we say "Noodo-box".


This is probably one of my favourite restaurants. It’s simple, delicious and consistent. I think I really love it because I don’t eat there often, it’s always something to look forward to, and taking transit to Kits isn’t really my most favourite thing to do, so it doesn’t happen often.

Thai Turkey Burgers with Broccoli Slaw

Will make again, and again.


I don’t wanna call these thai, maybe moreso “thai inspired”, or “east asian inspired” but whatever. They’re DAMN good and that’s all that matters.

Lemongrass Chicken

Perfect for the bbq! Srsly!


My favourite is Pho, Michael’s favourite is lemongrass chicken. (although he’s been ordering pho lately, I am a converter of all. The United Church of Beef Broth.)


So for my wonderful, amazing, mass amount of chicken consuming- significant other. I decided to try making it!


I’ve made it with packet lemongrass mixes before, but it never tastes right. Nothing from a package ever tastes right.

Black Bean and Corn Salsa

A portrait of a dinner.



I love making my own salsas. Pineapple salsa is my allll time favourite. But this is a good one too. Ugh. Peach salsa is awesome too.

Linguine in Sun-dried Tomato Pesto with Chicken



Pasta night! This is super-stupid easy to make. We’ll call it SS Easy for short. I bet it’s also the name of some lewd yacht somewhere.

Butter Chicken Poutine

This was SO worth how terrible it is for me, btw.


Poutine is a Canadian thing. I’ve met a few Americans who have NO idea what it is, which I find surprising, because a lot of “down home American food” consists of the same ingredients. Fries, cheese curds and gravy.


But this was far from traditional, but oh sooooo delicious.

Chicken, Spinach and Ricotta Manicotti


To any Italians out there, I'm Polish, don't judge.



I’ve decided to clean out my pantry and freezer. I had half of a package of manicotti, exactly 7 tubes, a brick of frozen spinach and some ground chicken.

Sister’s Secret Chicken (a dying breed)

Oh baby!


There’s this brand we sell, called “Sister’s Secret”. They make, well MADE, different sauces. People have always raved about how amazing it was. And now, unfortunately, they have gone out of business. We’ve acquired the last of the bottles to sell, and I wanted to try it before it was gone forever.

Pseudo Popcorn Chicken

Yum yum yum! I'm trying to make my photos prettier too!

Now I unfortunately I don’t have a step by step process to show you. I was much too hungry and needed to cook fast. But I did have time to snap a photo at the end!


Basically just follow the same thing I did with the buffalo chicken cutlets, but cut the chicken into much smaller pieces. I also double breaded these guys, and fried them in a shallow pan of oil. Once they’ve browned on both sides, take them out of the oil and onto a paper towel to drain some of the oil. Then sprinkle with salt!

Beautiful Butterflied-Chicken


I’m gonna be blunt with this. I LOVE chicken.  If I could pick one meat to eat for the rest of my life it would be chicken (Lamb is second…sorry lamb, its not you, it’s me). So I’m always incredibly excited when I have the time to make a roast chicken. There are generally three ways I go about it.

If I really have a lot of time, I like to brine my chicken for a few hours. I just mix a salty concoction and add some garlic, a bay leaf, pepper, paprika and whatever dried herbs I feel like; and submerge the chicken for however long I have.

If I feel like taking the time and am feeling pretty patient (I’m a leo, patience is fleeting), I like to put some herby delicious butter under the skin.

If I have all time in the world, am well rested and feelin’ good. I do both.

Fly into my belly!

Roasted Chicken!

I made roast chicken last night. It turned out very well and I couldn’t resist tearing off the wings and eating them before taking the picture.

I put the chicken in a brine for a few hours that also had some fresh thyme, garlic and a bay leaf.

Before baking I dried off the chicken and topped with salt, pepper, paprika and more thyme, squeezed a lemon inside and stuffed the lemon pieces and a piece of onion inside.

I then dry roasted for about 1.5 hours at 350. This was about a 1.4kg bird.

I served this with garlic mashed redskin potatoes with skin on and steamed carrots. I also made a quick sauce out of the drippings, but I made the mistake of squeezing the lemon from the bird cavity into it and it was very lemony. I added some honey to cut the acidity, but that didn’t save it much.(So I just used a little bit :P)
