Who doesn't love a stack of fluffy pancakes, dripping with maple syrup for brunch?! Being the sweet tooth that I am, I would gladly trade any savoury dish for a delicious stack of pancakes. The fluffier the better!
Baba Ghannouj fun facts: no one really knows why Baba Ghannouj was given such a name. You see, in Arabic, Baba means "daddy" and Ghannouj means "pampered" or "spoiled". So whether this recipe was invented by an old guy with "Ghannouj" as a family name (which is entirely possible in that region) or for some old, flirty, spoiled sultan, the name is surely a fun one to say!
I first got introduced to the idea of smashing my small potatoes from the one and only Jamie Oliver. Since then, it's become a staple in our household and I absolutely love using my homemade Toum (garlic sauce) instead of minced garlic!
Rawan, the teenager, had a hard time approaching people and making friends until she got into baking! All of a sudden, her brownies became the gateway to breaking the ice and forming long-lasting friendships. And in honour of these friendships, we bring you this timeless chewy, fudgy brownie recipe which is worthy of being a delicious bribe.
After years of open wings and beer nights spent with the best of friends in Beirut, this recipe just seems like the perfect way to immortalize great memories! Oven-roasted chicken wings, drenched in stout-based BBQ sauce is the perfect summertime addition to any game night whether virtual or in-person.
Rebels ITK joined forces with the Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO) to create a cooking party to celebrate the end of their Café-communauté summer program, a program that supports families that are new to the Ottawa region. We had a blast!!!
Meet Marco, the epicurean of this memoir; a Lebanese and recent Canadian citizen, family man and food lover. An automotive service manager by day and home-chef by night, he never ceases to surprise his family with great meals filled with love and memories.
Meet Miranda, Mariana and Sylvain, or “Los del Tres” as their friends and neighbors call them. A Lovely family from Ottawa that loves sharing food and stories with lots of laughter at their dinner table. So it goes without saying, that spending a day in the kitchen with “Los del Tres” was nothing short of a flavorful day filled with the warmth of their stories and passion for food.
