Monday's Mouthful - Oh dear, DEER!

Monday’s Mouthful – Stuffed Chicken Breasts!

Monday’s Mouthful – Stuffed Chicken Breasts!

Annnnddd we’re back with a new Monday mouthful – and of course todays post for our July Blogging Challenge! Inspired by the fact that my entire family is home in Newfoundland without me for the first time in years (my sister is usually the one missing out!) I decided to pull out my container of summer savoury and make my own version of a traditional Sunday dinner for myself and C! These stuffed chicken breasts are just about the easiest thing to pull together and were the perfect comfort food for this homesick Newfie this weekend.

Monday’s Mouthful – Vegetarian Stuffed Pasta!

Monday’s Mouthful – Vegetarian Stuffed Pasta!

I’m not entirely sure what to call this. I think the original recipe was for a type of lasagna – and included meat. My version has evolved into a vegetarian stuffed pasta made with butternut squash, spinach, and feta. This is a fairly simple recipe to follow and keeps well in the freezer.

Monday’s Mouthful – Homemade Bounty Bars!

Monday’s Mouthful – Homemade Bounty Bars!

As a kid Bounty Bars were among my favourite treats. (side note: if you’ve never had the Bounty ice cream bars you are seriously missing out.) Turns out homemade bounty bars are probably the easiest candy ever to make! With only 3 ingredients including the chocolate for dipping, there is no excuse not to make these right away!

Monday’s Mouthful – Stout Brownies

Monday’s Mouthful – Stout Brownies

Today I want to talk to you about stout brownies.

I will be the first to admit I don’t really get the appeal of brownies. If I want my dose of chocolate to be fudge-y I’ll buy chocolate fudge, if I want rich chocolate my favourite dark chocolate bar does the trick, and if I’m craving a chocolate baked good a cupcake wins out every time. With all of that said however… add beer to anything and I’ll be hooked!

Monday’s Mouthful – Chocolate Red Wine Cake

Monday’s Mouthful – Chocolate Red Wine Cake

In my world the only thing better than chocolate is red wine. This chocolate red wine cake is the best thing ever created.  I bake this whenever I can, like this weekend when I was volunteered by C to bring dessert to a friend’s house for lunch!

Monday’s Mouthful – Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Monday’s Mouthful – Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Is there any better comfort food than great chocolate chip cookies? Last week at school had my head spinning, and by the time I had made my 4 different train (metro, train, train) connections back home to Belgium I was in need of a perfectly warm, fresh baked chocolate chip cookie. Typically this would mean nothing more than slicing off a piece of cookie dough stored in my freezer but since I hadn’t baked cookies since arriving in March I thought I would mix up a batch to share with you.

Monday’s Mouthful – Ultimate Grilled Cheese

Monday’s Mouthful – Ultimate Grilled Cheese

One of my favorite foods is cheese. It’s even better when it’s warm and gooey on a sandwich. When it comes to cheese I say the more the merrier and this sandwich doesn’t hold back! The Havarti and cheddar melt down to hold this sandwich together from both sides and keep my favorite cheese, feta, from escaping. The Parmesan and oregano on the outside add a fancy flair, while the herb and garlic cream cheese brings the extra flavor. Adding cheese to any dish generally makes it better (like broccoli) and a dish where cheese is the star is definitely on my list of comfort foods.

Monday’s Mouthful – Lemon Pound Cake!

Monday’s Mouthful – Lemon Pound Cake!

Successfully baked my first cake in my new kitchen in Belgium!

It was my beautiful baby niece’s first birthday yesterday which meant a fantastic party for her and (since I officially start pastry school today) I was in full birthday cake mode. Another guest was bringing a chocolate cake so when the request was for anything other than chocolate… the wheels started turning!
