  • Creamy Cauliflower Cheese Bake (17 Mar 2019)
    A light and healthy casserole that doesn't taste healthy or light, and you won't feel have to feel guilty coming back for seconds! It's perfect as a main course or a side. See recipe notes for keto and gluten-free variations.

  • Homemade Bubble Tea or Milk Tea (12 Jul 2019)
    Cool down during the summer with your own addictive milk tea drink for a fraction of the cost of boba shops! Here I give options for brewing your own tea or using a pre-mixed powder.
  • The Easiest Ladoos Ever! (22 Mar 2019)
    (And the tastiest too!) These simple 4-ingredient ladoos are so creamy and delicious, I couldn't stop eating them even before they cooled down. Did I mention it's a one-pot recipe?!

  • What I Ate This Week: Aug 12–16 (16 Aug 2019)
    It's another short post this week as I'm heading off to Italy on Friday. This week has been less than healthy because I've been a bit preoccupied with exams, and I've had no motivation to cook.
  • What I Ate This Week: Aug 5–11 (11 Aug 2019)
    Lots of curries and bakes this week as we reach the midway point through exams. I stopped buying groceries this week, since we're going on vacation in two, so the meals are getting a little sparse.
  • What I Ate This Week: Jul 29 – Aug 4 (04 Aug 2019)
    Since the past two weeks haven't the healthiest in terms of meals, I'm trying to get back on track with more vegetables and whole foods in my diet. The start of exam season isn't going to stop me from making yummy food.
  • What I Ate This Week: Jul 22–28 (28 Jul 2019)
    It's been a busy week of food as I procrastinate on studying for exams. I'm getting back into bread-baking... well, baking in general. Not a lot of actual cooking this week, but the oven is seeing a lot of use.
  • What I Ate This Week: Jul 15–21 (21 Jul 2019)
    This week's meals are a bit all over the place. Highlights include: burrito bowls, weekend potluck, a yummy new sauce for bok choy, shopping at St Jacob's Farmers Market, and spicy ramen challenges to top it all off.
  • What I Ate This Week: Jul 1–7 (07 Jul 2019)
    Happy Canada Day ♡ We did most of our celebrating on Sunday, so this week is back to normal for us. We reached a new achievement this week: 0 instances of eating out! Fingers crossed we can keep it up.
  • What I Ate This Week: Jun 24—30 (30 Jun 2019)
    Kevin and I are going on a diet together. I am determined for both of us to eat out as little as possible, since there's no reason I can't cook most of our meals. Except a few meals with friends, we more or less achieved that goal this week!
  • What I Ate This Week: Jun 17—23 (23 Jun 2019)
    I've had my Kenwood stand mixer for less than two weeks and we've already developed a codependent relationship, help. Also, I try reverse-searing a steak for the first time in my life.
  • What I Ate This Week: Jun 10—16 (16 Jun 2019)
    We're back to the daily grind this week, but I'm kind of happy I can go back to cooking new foods and trying new recipes with a vengeance! And now that my mixer has arrived, I've broken it in by attempting to make some hot dog and hamburger buns.
  • What I Ate This Week: Jun 3–5 (05 Jun 2019)
    This week's regular post is getting cut short, because I'll be traveling to Montreal on Thursday for this year's F1 Grand Prix (and for a taste of authentic Montreal poutine, and smoked meat, and bagels, and... you get it). (Check out my [special edition post](/food/foodventures/what-i-ate-montreal-edition/) all about the best Montreal eats.)
  • What I Ate This Week: May 27 – Jun 2 (02 Jun 2019)
    I'm happy to say I didn't generate any food waste this week. I'm getting better at fully using up the things in my fridge, and it's probably because cooking for two people is easier than for one, even if I have to make separate meals a lot of the time.

  • What I Ate: North Italy Edition (Part 3/3: Venice) (31 Aug 2019)
    As the last stop on our Italian journey, Venice marks the last segment of this summer's holiday food updates. Even as I'm writing this (when I should really be reading textbooks), I miss Venezia so much. 😢
  • What I Ate: North Italy Edition (Part 2/3: Emilia-Romagna) (24 Aug 2019)
    Emilia-Romagna is not only home to the Motor Valley of Italy but also to culinary bastions like Bologna and Modena. Although we missed out on the famous lasagna alla bolognese this time, we managed to have a number of amazing meals and no shortage of gelato!
  • What I Ate: North Italy Edition (Part 1/3: Milan) (22 Aug 2019)
    The cosmopolitan nature of Milan is reflected through its varied cuisine. We ate everything from modern Italian dishes at a Michelin-starred restaurant to Brazilian-Japanese fusion sushi.

  • What I Ate: Montreal Edition (10 Jun 2019)
    On Thursday, we traveled to Montreal for a small weekend getaway. No home cooking at all in this post! It's all delicious, unhealthy, ultra-fattening French food, and I hope you like reading about it as much as we loved eating it.

  • The Perfect Batch of Grandma's Chocolate Chip Cookies (22 Jul 2019)
    Welcome to Jellie's Taste Kitchen. Today we're studying how changes to the baking time and temperature of cookie dough produce different results. These are my most successful chocolate chip cookies to date!
  • What I Ate This Week: Jul 8–14 (14 Jul 2019)
    My meat vocabulary is expanding further! This week I cooked spare ribs for the first time. I'm also trying out a new way of eating called OMAD (One Meal A Day), and am really enjoying myself so far.

  • Jellie's Great British Bake Along: Week 3, Bread (28 Sep 2019)
    Although most contestants of GBBO are apprehensive about Bread Week, this is probably the week I was most excited to bake along to. Not that I'm a good bread baker—I just love eating bread!
  • Jellie's Great British Bake Along: Week 2, Biscuits (27 Sep 2019)
    We're making fig rolls today! Well, date rolls to be precise because I don't have figs. This is Week 2 of my bake-along with The Great British Bake Off. I've never eaten a fig roll before, although I did use to buy the occasional fig bar from my high school vending machine. I imagine they have to taste kind of similar.
  • Jellie's Great British Bake Along: Week 1, Cake (13 Sep 2019)
    The first challenge of my 2019 GBBO Bake Along is already a disaster! Not only am I over three weeks late, my cake suffered a terrible accident en route from the oven. Doctors say he's not going to make it :'(
  • Jellie's Great British Bake Along of 2019 (27 Aug 2019)
    Last term, my bf and I got addicted to watching the Great British Bake Off. For Season 10, I've decided to try to follow along with the episodes as they roll out and try my hand at each week's technical challenges.

  • Minestrone Soup — Dump & Go in the Instant Pot (17 Sep 2019)
    I always find myself craving minestrone after eating junk food. It's savoury and delicious, but so light and healthy too. With a pressure cooker, you'll be able to make yourself a bowl of soup in less than half an hour—Instant gratification! Check out the how-to video at the bottom of the page to see a visual demonstration.
