On The Hunt for Simplicity [Vegan Mexican Chocolate Sorbet] On The Hunt for Simplicity [Vegan Mexican Chocolate Sorbet] By The Gouda Life 06/19/13 17:18 Most of the recipes on this here blog are come by organically. Whether it be a dish that tells a story of where I am at some point, a bundle of asparagus that moves me to do some research and make something new, or a particularly moving line in a book (My...
To Mayo or Not to Mayo [Roasted Onion & Fingerling Potato Salad with Chopped-Egg and Herb Dressing] To Mayo or Not to Mayo [Roasted Onion & Fingerling Potato Salad with Chopped-Egg and Herb Dressing] By The Gouda Life 06/11/13 23:02 I love mayonnaise. You’ll never, ever hear me say otherwise. While the thick, goopy glop that makes some people (many of my friends and boyfriend included) cringe, I happily sop it up with whatever starchy item is within reach. I grew up on it, and it reminds...
A Misplaced Groove [Midnight Mule] A Misplaced Groove [Midnight Mule] By The Gouda Life 06/06/13 20:40 Sooooo…hi. I’ve come to apologize for being such a pathetic excuse for a “food” blogger lately. I don’t know when this became a cocktail blog or when I became such a lush (always), but it’s taking me a bit longer to feel comfortable in my new kitchen than...
New Homes, Routines and Fiddleheads [Crispy Baked Fiddleheads with Spicy Lemon-Sumac Yogurt Dipping Sauce] New Homes, Routines and Fiddleheads [Crispy Baked Fiddleheads with Spicy Lemon-Sumac Yogurt Dipping Sauce] By The Gouda Life 05/27/13 20:17 So, we made it. After one of the longest weekends of my life, we are in our new apartment, our life piled high around us in teetering boxes, taunting us constantly. I don’t always adjust to change well. I like my routine and I get a bit loopy when it gets...
2013 Season - Farmers Feast 01 [Ramp, Green Garlic & Asparagus Frittata with Mennonite Sausage] 2013 Season - Farmers Feast 01 [Ramp, Green Garlic & Asparagus Frittata with Mennonite Sausage] By The Gouda Life 05/23/13 16:40 At the start of the 2012 season at the Ottawa Farmers Market, I embarked on a fun project with them that we titled the “ Farmers Feast”, in which I would receive a mystery basket of ingredients, chosen by Tara Simpson - their events coordinator, each month...
Moving and a Cocktail [The Victorian] Moving and a Cocktail [The Victorian] By The Gouda Life 05/17/13 17:53 The Friday before a long weekend is always rough. I can feel the anxiousness in my muscles, twitching and squirming and trying to maintain composure. It feels almost like the last month before summer holiday when I was in elementary school. We move next...
Saying Yes, Meaning No [Black Rice and Mushroom Burgers with Cucumber Garlic Yogurt] Saying Yes, Meaning No [Black Rice and Mushroom Burgers with Cucumber Garlic Yogurt] By The Gouda Life 05/10/13 18:07 I’m a yes girl. Saying no has always been a task that stirred my anxiety (surprise, surprise). I don’t like to disappoint people and for some strange reason, saying no made me feel like I was letting someone down or hurting their feelings. It didn’t matter...
Knock Out That Cold [Spicy Kale Ginger Lemonade] Knock Out That Cold [Spicy Kale Ginger Lemonade] By The Gouda Life 05/08/13 18:17 There is something ominous lurking around. A dirty, nasty cold/flu that seems to be knocking my friends and family out one by one. I woke yesterday with a sandpaper throat and what felt like two corks in my sinus’. Immediately I started trying to knock...
Finding My Past in Food [Healthier Egg Salad with Tarragon and Pickled Celery] Finding My Past in Food [Healthier Egg Salad with Tarragon and Pickled Celery] By The Gouda Life 04/29/13 16:19 My past with food isn’t as glamorous as I sometimes wish it was. I didn’t learn to mix, knead and roll pasta with my grandmother on Sundays and I wasn’t teetering on my tip toes, nose barely reaching the counter, while my Dad taught me how to break down...
Finding the Warmth [Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats] Finding the Warmth [Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats] By The Gouda Life 04/19/13 16:41 Today we need comfort. A reminder that amidst the cold, dark world we live in, there can be warmth. As we all hold our collective breaths, scared of what might happen and scared of who might do it, it’s hard to feel the warmth. Hard to remember that there...
I Am On Fire [Food Bloggers of Canada Conference Recap] I Am On Fire [Food Bloggers of Canada Conference Recap] By The Gouda Life 04/16/13 21:23 Oh me, oh my. Where do I begin? I suppose the beginning seems like the most logical place to begin. This past weekend I attended the very first Food Bloggers of Canada Conference . It was the first non-work-related conference I’ve attended and while it...
Not Settling for Sawdust [Coconut Red Quinoa Muffins with Sour Cherries and Pecans] Not Settling for Sawdust [Coconut Red Quinoa Muffins with Sour Cherries and Pecans] By The Gouda Life 04/09/13 21:17 I love breakfast. Love it like I love a glass of wine at the end of a long day (and that says a lot) and can’t bear the thought of getting out of bed without knowing there is something scrumptious waiting for me when I do. The thought of waking to the same...
A Lack of Thought [Almond Mint Arugula Falafel with Lemony Avocado Buttermilk Dressing] A Lack of Thought [Almond Mint Arugula Falafel with Lemony Avocado Buttermilk Dressing] By The Gouda Life 04/05/13 16:28 I keep coming here with the intention to write a big long spiel about stuff and things and life… and then I get here and just stare at the page, pick at my cuticles, sigh heavily, and walk away. I’m not sure if it’s a result of a busy few weeks or if I’m...
Speedy Meatless Monday [Caramelized Fennel, Roasted Garlic and Tomato Soup with Lemon] Speedy Meatless Monday [Caramelized Fennel, Roasted Garlic and Tomato Soup with Lemon] By The Gouda Life 04/01/13 16:37 Spring may be inching closer, but that doesn’t mean the lingering chill in the air can’t be battled with a warm bowl of bright, fragrant soup. Today’s meatless Monday dish has spent many cold, winter nights wrapping my bones in a blanket of steaming hot,...
Anchored Coffee Giveaway Anchored Coffee Giveaway By The Gouda Life 03/29/13 19:00 Coffee and I have developed a fetching relationship over the years. No longer drowned in cream (“too much moo”, as my friend Melody used to say when this happened) and 2 heaping teaspoons of sugar as was customary for the first 18 years of my life. I wake...
Desperately Seeking Sun [Ginger-Cilantro Margaritas] Desperately Seeking Sun [Ginger-Cilantro Margaritas] By The Gouda Life 03/25/13 17:38 I’m not usually so bitter towards winter. We live in a city that inevitably gets 200cm (78”) or more of snowfall each season but come March, when we tend to get a day or two of teasing above zero weather, anger and frustration starts to set in after that...
MacGyvering Lunch [Anchovy Butter Toast with Spicy Tomato Jam & Broccoli Rabe] MacGyvering Lunch [Anchovy Butter Toast with Spicy Tomato Jam & Broccoli Rabe] By The Gouda Life 03/21/13 19:01 I always imagine what chef’s and other food writers eat when no one is looking, when their fridges are almost empty save for a bit of produce and pantry basics. In my mind, they use these few ingredients to whip up extravagant dishes, the way MacGyver might...
Cookin' Greens are Entering the Dragon's Den [Cookin Greens Breakfast Pizza] Cookin' Greens are Entering the Dragon's Den [Cookin Greens Breakfast Pizza] By The Gouda Life 03/18/13 12:54 I had the pleasure of working with Cookin’ Greens on a project recently. They are scheduled to air on Dragon’s Den, a show about a spiring entrepreneurs who pitch their ideas and businesses to five multi-millionaires, with the expertise and money to turn...
Disappointment & Cake [Maple Porter Chocolate Cake] Disappointment & Cake [Maple Porter Chocolate Cake] By The Gouda Life 03/12/13 16:59 Disappointment is something I’ve never taken on with grace. It shrinks my insides and turns them black and jagged as shards of broken glass. I’m learning, as time passes, that taking on life’s disappointments, of which there will be many, I’m sure, with...
Holy Expletive! [Bourbon-Soaked Mandarin & Vanilla Affogato] Holy Expletive! [Bourbon-Soaked Mandarin & Vanilla Affogato] By The Gouda Life 03/07/13 16:10 Today is a quickie that I couldn’t resist sharing as immediately and urgently as possible. As I sat and sipped it a few evenings ago, spoon screeching against the side of the cup as I struggled to get every last bite into my waiting gob, I realized that...
