Coconut Lime Bars

This past weekend I was updating my summer playlist when I came across an older song that I hadn't heard in years.  The song was Coconut by Harry Nilsson - "You put the lime in the coconut and drink them both down."  I began to immediately sing along to the catchy lyrics, putting the song [...]

Chicken Curry

Curry is my ultimate comfort food.  Its delicious, simple, nutritious and I simply love the aroma as it cooks.  The blend of spices wafting through the air of my tiny apartment will bring an instant smile to my face. As with my previous curry recipe, I make a distinction between flavour and heat when I [...]

Peach Pie

Having a slice of good homemade pie is beyond comparison.  It's the ultimate comfort food for me - like the buttery crust and warm, goey filling are wrapping me up in a delicious pie blanket.

Alas, this is just the plain jane brownie, but plain jane is perfectly good on its own.  Like all my entries before this, [...]

Banana Bread

Banana Bread, the delicious saviour of far gone bananas.  This is another recipe that has been passed down to me through generations of my family which I am all too happy to share with all of you.  The soft interior crumb is encased in a crispy,  golden brown crust which is satisfyingly crunchy.  When sliced, [...]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

It's amazing how food can trigger so many memories.  The smell and taste of these are iconic to my childhood.  This recipe was originally my mothers, but she may have gotten it from my grandmother. I recently transcribed it from an old recipe card that was well-worn.  Vanilla and chocolate stains spotted the recipe and [...]
