Crab Cakes

Crab Cakes (Easiest Recipe!)

This crab cake recipe is a hit in our household.  These little cakes are really simple to make and so delicious. All you’re doing is combining one-third of your bread crumbs (we use Panko bread crumbs, but feel free to use a bread crumb of your choice), sweet onion, green onion, parsley, egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice and garlic powder in a large bowl. Once this is all combined well, you fold in the crab meat, again …

Watermelon, Arugula and Feta Salad with a Balsamic Vinaigrette

Nothing says summer like watermelon! I’m a fan of watermelon all through the year, but there really is nothing as delicious as a ripe watermelon in the summer season.  It’s fresh, the perfect amount of sweet, and I’m just in love with its bright colour. And since it is July, I’ve been inspired to make some yummy recipes using watermelon lately.  You’ve already seen my post on the Watermelon Margarita, which I hope you enjoyed!  …

Una margarita por favor – a watermelon margarita that is!

If you enjoy a margarita, I encourage you to try this Watermelon Margarita!  It has the perfect blend of sweetness from the watermelon and tartness from the lime.  Using watermelon also makes it the perfect summer cocktail — watermelon just screams S-U-M-M-E-R!

2-Ingredient Peach Sherbet

So, the other day I was cleaning out our pantry and happened to find a can of low-fat sweetened condensed milk. I was inspired but a bit unsure of where to start. So I continued my search throughout the kitchen to hopefully spark some creative juices and I was pleased to find some frozen sliced peaches in the freezer. Frozen Peaches + Condensed Milk = SUPER-SIMPLE PEACH SHERBET ALSO (might I add): 2-ingredients + 1 …

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I’ve always been a fan of roasted red pepper hummus – it is one of my all-time favourite flavours of hummus.  We just love hummus at our house because it is a healthy snack and readily available any time of the day – just pull it out of the fridge, grab your favourite cracker or veggie to dip in, and there you go,  so accessible and equally delicious. For this particular recipe, I was looking …

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries and No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Truffles

In honour of Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing two recipes with you today.  These recipes are so incredibly easy to make.  Not to mention, they are delicious and look like you’ve really put in some effort, when in fact, you only took some minutes to complete these. I decided on these specific treats because Valentine’s Day sort of crept up on me this year, completely forgot about it, and so had nothing prepared.  These recipes require …
