Potato Goat Cheese Pierogi

Potato and Goat Cheese Pierogi

Comfort food. Everybody loves it. For some it’s a nice warm bowl of soup. For others it’s a grilled cheese. Regardless of your dish of choice, it always makes you feel better when you’re cold, homesick, under the weather, lonely, or even hungover. Lately, our comfort food of choice has been pierogi. So last week […]

Snacking. It’s everyone’s worst enemy. Katie and I are guilty of it all the time. It mostly comes in the form of Miss Vickies – they are pretty hard to resist. Ever since we started running, we’ve been trying to eat better too. That applies to snacking as well. While giving up Miss Vickies is […]

What is your favourite food? People often ask me what my favourite food or dish is. That’s an impossible question. It all depends on what I’m in the mood for, or what is in season at that given time. However, lately Katie and I have been on quite the enchilada kick. They are so amazingly […]

I’ve always been fascinated with the city of New Orleans. The diverse culture, the beautiful architecture, the passionate sports fans, the birthplace of jazz, and the food – oh, the food. The Big Easy’s traditional dishes combine a unique blend of Creole, French, Spanish, African and Cuban flavours to create a truly distinct Louisiana taste. So here’s […]

To inaugurate the start of fall, bv02 decided to hold an office chili cook-off back in September. The result was 8 chilis, 27 judges and a hot pepper eating contest. Predicting that many of my coworkers would go with the classic chili full of beef and spice, I decided to take the creative route to set […]

Smoked Paprika Crisps with Garlic Onion Dip

Guilty pleasures. We all have them. For some it’s popcorn, others it’s cookies. For Katie and I, we have a guilty pleasure by the name of Miss Vickies. There’s just something about them that make them irresistible to us. Knowing that they are not the healthiest of snacks, we’ve tried to eat them less often. Easier said than done. […]

Fall is here. The mornings are cool, the leaves are changing, and my favourite autumn ingredients are coming into season. After a late night out in Vankleek Hill for Beau’s Oktoberfest, Katie and I woke up cold and tired. Needing some comfort food, I headed to the kitchen to whip up a new favourite – […]

Balsamic Glazed Steak

Nothing says summer like steak on the BBQ. Unfortunately, my landlord doesn’t allow barbecues on our balconies, so I’ve had to resort to creating my favourite summer dishes on the stove top or in the oven. When it comes to steak, I’ve had better success cooking it in the oven rather than in a skillet. […]

Lately, Katie and I have been making a lot more Asian dishes. Not only are they relatively easy to make, but they are often absolutely delicious and make hands down the best leftovers. Chicken Pad Thai is no exception. The amazing combination of flavours and textures have made this one of our favourite dinners, and we make […]

Linguini with sun dried tomato presto, roasted mushrooms and goat cheese

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto

Lately I’ve been really trying to make everything from scratch. Everything from salsas to BBQ sauces to salad dressings. The less store bought, pre-made stuff I cook with, the better. That’s my mentality at least. As you may know, Katie and I are in the midst of training for our first half marathon. Since we’ve […]
