Is focaccia art still a trend? I absolutely love baking bread. I know so many people are hesitant to work with it, but I’m telling you this is the bread for you to try. 🍞 Focaccia is the second bread I ever made (after my braided loaf). If I’m short on time I often whip up pizza dough and turn it into focaccia. It’s that easy. Bonus: it’s plant based 🌿 This time I wanted to try @sallysbakeblog focaccia and let me tell you it turned out phenomenal. Like we polished this off in one sitting good. The key to really good focaccia, in my humble opinion, is a generous amount of GOOD olive oil (tagged the brand I use below), and a good long rest in the fridge. Use a nice coarse salt like @maldonsalt and fresh rosemary for a beautiful savoury flavour. Some might say you need bread flour, but I used good old @robinhoodbaking all purpose flour and it turned out perfectly. Have you tried making bread? Do you want to see more bread baking here?

The holidays are meant for baking. There’s something about the cold weather, and of course all the family time, that makes use want to bake up sweet memories with our loved ones. When @heelas_kitchen invited me to a holiday cookie collab, I knew I had to make these delicious s’mores cookies! My kids love marshmallows, who doesn’t?, and they had a great time eating all the marshmallows.. err baking with me 🤷🏽‍♀️ The rockstar cooks and food photographers taking part in this collaboration are: @heelas_kitchen (host) @kitchen_diaries_by_zubda @mahamalavi @_krithika Run, don’t walk, and check out what they’ve made. Pretty sure I’ll be baking all their cookies in the next two weeks! The recipe is from @gayleafoodscoop as part of their #bakeitforward initiative. We loved it! Ingredients 1 cup (250mL) GAY LEA - Unsalted Butter, softened (I doubled this amount, bc who doesn’t love more butter!) 1 cup (250mL) granulated sugar 1/2 cup (125mL) brown sugar 2 eggs 1 tsp (5mL) vanilla extract 3 cups (750mL) all purpose flour 1 tsp (5mL) baking soda 1/2 tsp (2mL) salt 1 1/2 cups (375mL) dark chocolate chips 1 cup (250mL) mini marshmallows 6 graham cracker, coarsely chopped Instructions Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC).

In separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt; beat slowly into butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips, marshmallows and graham crackers. Shape dough into 24 balls; place on 2 parchment paper–lined baking sheets, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart; flatten slightly. Bake, in batches, for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown around edges and gooey in centre. Let cool in pans on racks for 5 minutes.

I love lasagna! I mean, who doesn’t! 🍝 I’ve made it several times, several ways, and this version is my all time favourite. 🙌🏽 Not only do the layers cut beautifully (swipe for a cross sectional shot 😍), the flavours are on point. I’ve cooked the ground beef in seasonings that lend that Italian sausage flavour without needing to find halal Italian sausage. 🧀 The ricotta layer is seasoned, and speckled with spinach for a sneaky addition of veggies your kids won’t notice - but will love! 🫕 I’ve found that using three types of cheese make for the perfect creamy lasagna, and a forth for that mouthwatering cheese pull we all love to see. 🍅 A major player in making your lasagna delicious is the sauce. I highly recommend finding a homemade sauce, making your own, or store bought that tastes like fresh tomatoes. 👩‍🍳 Making your own sauce is as easy as simmering a can of whole Roma tomatoes, adding in basil, fresh garlic, some oregano and carrots for sweetness. Season with salt and blend it up to hide the carrots. Alternatively, add some sugar for a hint of sweetness. 🌿 Also: I par boil my lasagna sheets. This is a personal preference, but I feel more in control of how much sauce I’ll need if the sheets won’t absorb as much. 👌 Before I share the recipe, do you have any tips or tricks for the perfect lasagna? Also, burning question: are you team cheese or béchamel? #italianfoodlover#lasagna#pastalovers#thewayweeat#fnceats#feedfeed#food52#f52grams#inmykitchentoday#onmytable#whatimeating#onmyplate#seriouslydelicious#omgsogood#thekitchn#torontofoodblogger#indianfoodblog#pakistanifoodblogger#foodinfluencer#torontoinfluencers #sharetheeverygirl#sharetheeverymom

What’s your favourite snack to compliment a good cup of chai? This cream cheese raspberry sweetbread is an all time favourite of mine. Sweet enough to satisfy a sugar craving, subtle enough to be had with breakfast, brunch, or after dinner. For me, snowy days mean a good cup of chai (or three 🥁 😅) and a sweet treat to enjoy while I cozy up with a fuzzy throw. The recipe and a detailed video can be found in my IGTV. Today I’m collaborating with some talented women, sharing our favourite tea and the foods we enjoy with it! Be sure to check them out to see what they’ve made: @kitty.kitchenette @anintrovertedblogger @pictoral_journal #momswhobake#holidaybaking#sweetbread#breakfastideasforkids#brunchideas#momswhocook#momsoninstagram#christmasbaking#easybaking#feedfeed#food52#f52grams#fnceats#thekitchn#bakersgonnabake#discoverunder10k#indianfoodblog#pakistanifoodbloggers#whatdiet#dietstartsmonday#easyrecipesathome#quarantinebaking#momofthreekids

When it snows I need warm, comforting food. Come to think of it, my version of comfort changes with the seasons, rainy spring weather makes me crave spicy pakoras, summer has me wanting bbq, fresh salads and lighter meals, and fall and winter call for soups, stews, cozy chicken roasts and pasta bakes. If you ask me, everyone needs to make this chicken tikka masala today. It’s quick and easy, like pretty much all my recipes - cause that’s just how I do. It’s homey, it’s warm, it’s spicy in the best kind of way. Make a steaming pot of rice, fresh naan (try my no rise naan in highlights) or chapati (foolproof recipe in highlights, too!). Make it for your spouse, your kids, your parents, your neighbours - just make it! What are you waiting for? Recipe is in my highlights! Go make it!

. Call these what you like: Open faced crab sandwiches/crab canapés/crab appetizers Just make them! This cheesy crab filling is quick, easy, and delicious. Perfect for Sunday lunch prep: make, refrigerate, top on crusty Italian/French bread and broil to melt the cheese Or do what I did and make canapés: simply cut squares or rounds of puff pastry, brush with egg wash, top with filling, bake until the bread is toasty, add some more cheese and broil until it’s melted. Recipe in highlights under Crab Canapés Enjoy! #seafoodlover#appetizer#thanksgivingrecipes#friendsgivingdinner#thekitchn#feedfeed#food52#feedfeedbaking#f52grams#fnceats#youcanmakeit#eatthis#momswhocook#chefathome#homechefs#selftaughtchef#cookathome#inmykitchen#whatimeating#cheeselovers#ontariodairy#armstrongcheese#saputocheese#cheesyfood#torontoblogger#torontofoodblogger#yyzfoodies

One day I will finally get an amazing shot of this bread. A shot that captures the aroma, the fluffiness, the flavours, and all the love I put into each and every loaf. For now, I’ll leave you with this shot - made for some friends, filled with olive oil and zaatar, topped with poppy and sesame seeds to make it pretty #fnceats#feedfeed#food52community#food52grams#homemadebread#easyrecipes#inmykitchen#onmytable#carblover#freshlybakedbread#breadbaker#momswhobake#momswhocook#fallbaking#comfortfood#comfortbaking

You need to try this Pizza! Last week, I was invited to try @masemobyparamount - a new concept by the owner of Canada’s Best Lebanese restaurant, Paramount Fine Foods @ceo_mohamad.paramount and Canada’s Best Pizza Chef @chefcapra serving up a fusion of authentic Italian pizza and manakeesh - and it’s all 100% halal 🎉 The name MAS E MO, a fun play on words, translates literally from Italian to MAS AND MO, combining the names of Chef Capra (Massimo) and Mr. Fakih (Mohamad) Before I get to the food, I have to applaud the staff. I was received with a warm welcome as soon as I entered, regional manager @mrsabeh and head pizza chef @as_whiteee went above and beyond to make me feel at home, their hospitality is unmatched. You can be sure you’re getting authentic Italian pizzas, everything from the dough to the sauce and every measured ingredient is created by Chef Massimo Capra. This is the pizza all halal eaters have been waiting for! On the Menu are both traditional Italian and traditional Lebanese flavours, making the perfect fusion menu - I tried the Calabrese Spicy Salami, Margarita and my guest the Arabella - we also enjoyed their delicious Arancini and ceaser salad topped with basterma. We ended off with the most creamy, delicious cheesecake from the one and only @lailascheesecakeco - the entire meal was straight out of heaven. Toronto can finally enjoy endless jars of Laila’s perfectly sized and flavoured cheesecake 😭 Pictured: 🍕 Margarita - tomato sauce, fior-de-latte mozzarella, basil and oregano 🍕Calabrese with Spicy Beef Salami - Salami, red chilis 🍕Arabella - tomato, mozzarella, beef kofta, roasted red peppers, arugula 🍕Arancini - crispy breaded rice balls, filled with ricotta, spinach and mozzarella 🥗 ceaser salad topped with basterma 🍰 @lailascheesecakeco in coffee (we tried pistachio, too!) Mas E Mo has three kitchens: 📍Paramount Dundas - 253 Yonge Street 📍Paramount Burlington - 2535 Appleby Line 📍Paramount Yonge & Eglinton 2311 Yonge St (Opening October 28) What pizza flavours are you excited to try? 👋 I was not asked to share this post - four days after enjoying this meal, I’m still dreaming of it, I had to share!

Looking for a comforting, quick, kid approved meal for the weekend? I got you 😉 This easy chicken tetrazzini checks all the boxes: ✅ quick ✅ easy ✅ kid approved ✅ delicious 👌 What more could a mom ask for (there are veggies and chicken in here too, mamas) 🥦 Make this easy recipe, tag me, share with anyone who needs a bowl of comfort as we dip into the single digits 🥶 •20 Minute Chicken Tetrazzini • 271 grams (about 2/3 box) of @barillacanada spaghetti, boiled to al dente in salty water- save 1 cup of pasta water Do not rinse the pasta, this helps the sauce stick 1T flour 4T unsalted butter 1 veggie or chicken bouillon cube dissolved in 1/2 cup water OR use. broth (and not bouillon) Black pepper 1/2T dried thyme or 2 sprigs fresh 2T grated parmesan, as always I use @trestellecheese (it’s halal) 1 cup half and half cream (10%) 1/4 cup heavy cream (35%) Veggies of choice, I use: sliced mushrooms, red bell peppers, broccoli, onions (not optional you need these for flavour) Pinch nutmeg 3 medium/large cloves garlic 1 medium/large chicken breast Salt and pepper for the chicken Optional: Chili flakes or chili oil Fresh parsley • start by heating a pan on high heat, turn down to medium once it’s heated. • season the chicken with salt and pepper, add 2T butter to the pan, followed by the chicken. • Cook until done, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove and set aside - do NOT cut into it yet! * in a large (12 inch) and deep skillet on medium high heat, add 2T butter and minced garlic. Add when the skillet is in a cold state. The garlic will cook better, and not burn. * After about 30-60 seconds, add in 1T flour and cook until slightly golden, now add in the veggies and sauté until tender crisp. * Add in the creams and simmer on medium, until slightly thickened. * Now add the broth/bouillon and water. Again, simmer until slightly thickened. * Add in the thyme, black pepper, nutmeg and Parmesan cheese, mix well and add the pasta. * Slice or dice the chicken breast into bite sized pieces. Add to the pasta, mix well to combine. * If needed, add pasta water 1T at a time to loosen the sauce if it’s too thick. More ⬇️ #thewayweeat#foodtographyschool

Apparently it’s #NationalDessertDay and so, naturally, I have to share one of my all time favourite desserts. Now, hear me out - I love me a decadent chocolate cake filled with a fluffy vanilla or chocolate mousse, or browned butter salted chocolate cookies, and I definitely love my easy apple strudel and of course the braided raspberry loaf and... You get the point 😆 I chose to share this #vegan #glutenfree and #refinedsugarfree ice cream sandwich again with you today because it has become a fast family favourite. I’m talking kids searching for them in the freezer, fighting for the last one, and begging me to make more, type of favourite. I can’t take credit for the recipe, it’s by the ever so talented Meera Sodha who writes for the Guardian. I adjust the recipe by using coconut sugar in place of refined. Search for ‘Meera Sodha Vegan Cereal Milk Ice Cream’ on Google. Don’t be put off by the alternative milks, this ice cream is a dream - I promise you You can thank me later ✌️ #veganicecream#plantbased#plantbasedrecipes#foodphotographystyling#foodstyling#icecream#icecreamsandwiches#eatclean#cleaneating#decadentdesserts#feedfeedglutenfree#feedfeedvegan#f52grams#foodnetworkthekitchen#inthekitchen#summervibes#dessertgoals

Confession time: Growing up, I rarely ate rice 🙊 Chapati was my go to with Indian meals, and during the day I’d have paninis, pasta, wraps - anything but rice. 🥯 Now? Give me all the rice. All.of.it 🍚 Rice is such a beautiful blank canvas for a cook. 🧂 Season it with salt, add some oil or butter and you have a simple side to soak up a spicy curry. 🍛 Sauté some onions, add in crushed tomatoes and a few spices, and you’ve got a flavourful dish perfect with a Sunday roast 🍗 You can even grind it up and turn it into a pita! 🥙 Or do what I do when I feel like a hint of herbiness with my bbq, hummus and pita: add all the herbs (well, not all but I’ll share what I did soon 😉), top with pomegranate, and enjoy! The possibilities are endless! What’s your favourite rice dish? And tell me, team rice or bread? #foodforthought#rice#glutenfree#sidedish#foodnetworkkitchen#canadianbaker#canadiancook#feedfeedvegan#feedfeedglutenfree#food52gram#f52gramsfoodpic#foodporn#middleeasternfood#momswhocook#foodnetworkcanada#tasty#homegardening🌱#fallharvest#veganfood#plantbasedmealprep#eatmorevegetables#inmykitchentoday#under10k
