West Coast Mushroom Galette

Fall is a special time for mushroom lovers since so many varieties come into season! I use Chanterelle, Oyster and Cremini mushrooms in this delicious and seasonal recipe for my West Coast Mushroom Galette! You can forage your own mushrooms (if you have some expertise in mushroom foraging) or you can simply buy mushrooms at your local grocery store. Plus, this recipe allows you to combine whichever mushrooms are your favourite into this savoury galette! Read on down below to see which mushrooms I chose for my West Coast Mushroom Galette plus some tips on how to make the perfect pie dough and homemade ricotta cheese! Wild & Commercially Grown Mushrooms For my West Coast Mushroom Galette, I like to combine both wild and commercially grown mushrooms. Although wild mushrooms are a bit fancier, they come with a much higher price tag than regular commercially grown mushrooms. So instead of spending a fortune on this meal, I like to use some commercial mushrooms as a base and then accent it with some high end wild …

Cream Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means… I am back again today with another #AppyHolidays post! This week, I am sharing my Cream Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Mushroom recipe. These Cream Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms are the perfect little appetizer that your guests can pop right into their mouths and savour during a cocktail party or right before a festive holiday meal.

I think that these ingredients make it so rich and decadent, and isn’t that what the holidays are …

Soup Series: Homemade Congee

Looks like the dreary rainy weather has finally set in here in Vancouver. Up to today, I have not seen the sun in two weeks, which is fairly typical for the southern coast of BC during this time of year, but caught a glimpse of it today for about three hours, before it got dark again. I really love the rain, I jut hate when it rains incessantly for months on end. Plus it is dark, cold and just not welcoming at all. But being the eternal optimist that I am, I am choosing to make the bet of this situation and look at the silver lining of these rain clouds. How, you ask? Through indulging in the most warming and comforting meal there is: SOUP! The beginnings of vegetable broth <3 I could honestly eat soup every day for the rest of my life and never get bored of it. There are so many different variations of soup including bisques, chowder, broths, stews, chili, and so on. Plus, there are so many ingredients that …
