Mexican BLT with Guacamole

mexican-blt-1-2

I think I have a split personality when it comes to food. The reason I say this is because sometimes you see recipes like this Mexican BLT with Guacamole or this Thai Chicken Salad on my blog which are fairly healthy and then sometimes you see recipes like Sex in a Pan or this chocolate cake here. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just wanted you to know that I know. Have I confused you yet? Well here's the thing my friends, you need variety in your life, so here you will find lots … [Read more...]

Easy Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I have to confess something to you all. I've been obsessed with this show called Pretty Little Liars. I was in the kitchen one day cooking and I wanted to watch something on Netflix when I came across this show and thought I'd give it a try. Well one show in and I was hooked. Ever since then this is pretty much all I've watched on TV. As I watch each show I think one more and I'll find out who A is. Well I don't want to spoil it for you if you haven't seen it, but this show is my vice, what's … [Read more...]

Chicken Fajita Sandwiches

I love the idea of turning favorite meals into a sandwich. And that's just what I did here.

So it's April, it's almost Easter, it is officially spring. Not in Calgary. It is snowing heavy out there as I am typing this post and I am not happy about it. It looks like December out there, but thankfully I am off for the rest of the week and I don't have to go out there. Even Mia (my beagle) would not want to step out there. She'd rather stay inside and watch TV. With me. :) I've probably mentioned this before, but I love to watch the foodnetwork channel. I'm watching it as we speak. … [Read more...]

He made a couple sandwiches with it and I gobbled it up, it was so delicious. I wish there would be left overs so I can take some for lunch tomorrow, but no such thing, it was just that good. The ingredients … [Read more...]

Bacon Mushroom Calzones

calzone

Pizza has become a staple at my house on the weekend. However, we're starting the get a bit bored with it, so this weekend we decided to try a calzone. Calzones are really just Italian sandwiches traditionally stuffed with mozzarella and tomatoes and made from pizza dough. They make for great street food because they are easy to eat on the street while standing or walking. I suppose a calzone is similar to a stromboli, not really sure what the difference is, they look the same to me. I … [Read more...]

You know how when you come home from work you're not always in the mood for cooking because you're exhausted? Well today I felt like that. I simply don't want to be in the kitchen for long.

I said to myself, how about some grilled golden Gruyere and prosciutto tortillas? OK, so it didn't actually happen quite like that. I looked in the fridge and I saw … [Read more...]
