Paprika Chicken Drumsticks

I have never made chicken legs before, never been brave enough to try it, but I finally decided it was time to try it.  I’ve been cooking for a few months now, so I think I’m getting the hang of this thing.  Both my roommates declared this chicken as awesome so hopefully you guys will…

Cinnamon Glazed Pork and Pears

I have always loved pork and apples, it is a winning combination so much so that I am disappointed when a pork dish does not come with an apple side.  But I found some good looking pears at the grocery store and was inspired to try something new. Not least of which because you can…

Lemon and Garlic Baked Sole

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and with that I seem to have lapsed back into my too much take out pizza bad habit.  There have been stages in my life where I have basically lived on pizza and turning into the next drive-thru I come to and calling it dinner, that stage was…

Tea Cakes

Have you ever been in that situation, you want to bake, choose the recipe sure you have all the ingredients and start only to find out part way through that you actually don’t have everything?  I had the oven preheated, my cupcake pans greased and ready to go, the butter, sugar and eggs in a…

Maple Cupcakes

I don’t know about you but I find baking to be incredibly relaxing. There is just something about taking a few cups of flour, sugar and butter and turning it into something else.  And even better, it always results in yummy treats at the end. But not just the deliciousness it produces but the process…

Chocolate Chip Loaf

When I was a child, my Grandmother would spend the entire of her Sunday baking.  Our house would smell of the delicious cakes and breads for almost an entire week afterwards, and by the time it was gone it was Sunday again and it would start all over.  I think that is one of the…

Cinnamon Dump Cake

When I was a little girl I loved to watch my Grandmother in the kitchen.  Every Sunday without fail was her baking day and it was my favorite because I was the one who got to lick out the bowl.  She made this particular cake every weekend because it was truly a favorite and would…

Spiced Sole with Tomatoes

I have been trying to find new ways to incorporate fish into my diet. I was never a big fan of fish, I always deemed it as ‘too fishy’ and would opt for the peanut butter sandwich instead, but I started experimenting more in the kitchen I have discovered that in actual fact I do…

Bruschetta Chicken

A while ago I bought a seasoning mix for bruschetta, back when my friends first started with the home selling stuff, back when I would attend the parties and then basically scan the pamphlet for the cheapest item that I might actually find some kind of use for.  That was before everyone started selling lipgloss,…

Pork and Candy Apples

My favorite thing about any type of pork dish is that it always comes with apple sauce (and if it doesn’t I am incredibly disappointed) so when I decided to try my hand at making pork chops I wanted to try to incorporate the apples right into the dish. A one pot kind of deal….

Lemon Garlic Chicken

I’ve been craving chicken all week, but with a few hectic days ending in the last minute decision to grab pizza it took a while to actually get round to making some. I kind of sort of remember my aunt making a lemon chicken a couple of times so I decided I needed to give…

Saganaki Salmon

I will preface this post by saying that I have never really been a fan of fish.  The reason? Because get this: it tastes fishy.  So I tend to avoid it wherever possible.  So when my roommate comes home clutching the biggest filet of salmon I have ever seen I knew I had to at…
