What I’ve been cooking lately

Ever since I got an iPhone a few weeks ago I’ve been too lazy to whip out my camera, so I’ve just been using my phone to take pictures. On the downside, their quality isn’t that great, but on the upside, I’ve been taking a lot more pictures of my food. So today I just have a photo dump of some of the things that have been coming out of my kitchen lately!

I. Maple Dijon salmon with wild rice and this kale, cabbage and carrot salad.


II. Channa masala with brown basmati rice. This was my first time having channa masala and I’m definitely a fan!


III. Apple pie oatmeal: Cook 1/3 cup of oats with milk, chia seeds, raisins, cinnamon and 1/2 a chopped apple. Top with the rest of the chopped apple simmered with cinnamon, more raisins, and almond butter.


IV. After having the QuinWOW bowl at Kindfood this weekend I decided to try to make my own miso gravy. I’ll have to do more experimenting to get it right, but this was pretty good for my first try!


V. Okay, so I know fro yo isn’t something that I made myself – but I had to serve it myself and add my own toppings, so it sort of counts. The cookies ‘n cream flavour from Yogurty’s is awesome!

  1. Er fro yo definitely counts as cooking…so does assembling a bowl of cereal right ;)! Maple dijon salmon sounds fab..and is making me want to buy some salmon asap- it’s been too long! I can’t even think of the last thing I cooked. My sis is visiting in town so a lot of our meals have been eaten out lately and on the few occasions we’re at home, I’ve either defaulted to eggs with toast, oatmeal yogurt bowls or my mom has done the cooking :).

    Love the looks of that salmon meal….yum! I’ve been cooking a lot of tilapia and roasted veggies for dinners and I’m on a green smoothie kick for breakfast.

  3. I love salmon with dijon and walnuts on top, its probably my favorite way to eat it. Recently I haven’t been doing much cooking but I have been putting together lots of cold plates. Although I did have a hot breakfast yesterday and today!

  4. My cooking has been pretty much like your froyo assembly lately… I haven’t been doing too much in the kitchen, and most of my meals are thrown together in 10 minutes or less. I miss the creativity, though! Especially when you keep taunting me with all of your delicious looking eats :P

  5. So our future sushi date may end with Yogurty’s…I have one near my apartment and I’m still making my way through the gift cards I got at Christmas ;-) And cookies and cream is one of their best flavours, although peppermint white chocolate is pretty fabulous as well :-D
    Maple dijon salmon looks amazing! I may have to try that combo the next time I make salmon for dinner…I’m making it tonight, but it’s premarinated with chimichurri flavours.

  6. Mm joe’s been cooking tilapia and risotto and chicken sausage for us this week! I think i’m making lasagna for my daddy for father’s day though…first time i’ll have made a dinner in awhile which i’m pretty psyched for :)

  7. I use my iPhone FAR to often, and probably the reason why I have no more space left on it! haha
