Recipe: Apple and Tomato ‘Gazpacho Sauce’

I just realized that I have NOT posted a recipe on DelectablyChic! in ages.  So why not do one now?  I’ve been experimenting with food again recently, and decided to make a soup which can double as a sauce when heated.  All you need are the following: This is the size you want the apples, […]

Quark and Greek Yogurt Cheesecake with Raspberries

I was looking for an interesting dessert to serve over the holiday weekend and found a quark and yogurt cheesecake (quark is a soft, spreadable cheese with a texture that is a bit lighter than tubbed cream cheese, but not as runny as cottage cheese.  The only mainstream grocery store brand I know that carries […]

Chopped Canada Season 2, Episode Six: Lime Pickle and Tropical Fish

Ingredients for episode six included tuna steaks and french fries for the main and Royal Gala apples in the dessert round.  For this week, I will concentrate on the mystery basket in the main course.  In addition to the fries and tuna, the remaining two ingredients were lime pickle and pina colada mix.  This is […]

Baked French Toast with Hong Kong Style Coconut Bread

Coconut bread, also known as “cocktail bread” (gai may bao in Cantonese), is readily available at Chinese bakeries and grocery stores (like T&T). This sweet-tasting bread is perfect for making French toast, which is what we did on Christmas Day.  As I didn’t really feel like using a skillet, I decided to bake mine.  I […]

Recipe: Four Flour Banana Bread

Remember the maple sugar spelt banana bread I made a few years ago?  Well, I tweaked it again (since it was based on a recipe I found in a book) and made it with four different types of flour:  spelt, rice, amaranth and almond.  Result?  Super-dooper moist!  And it freezes really well, too.  Great as […]

Baked Eggs is What’s for Dinner!

I like to go meatless at least once a week (though I don’t always get to) and recently, I decided to make baked eggs.  This would also make an amazing New Year’s Day brunch dish (if you’re still looking for ideas). Ingredients: 4 egg whites + 2 whole eggs (large) A little more than 1/4 […]

(Leftover) BBQ Pork and Onion Socca

In an effort to cut down on “traditional” carbs like wheat flour breads, rice and potatoes, I’ve been scouring the Internet for recipes which contain none of those ingredients.  One can only have so much quinoa, after all.  When I was looking up recipes for chickpea flour, I came across socca, a flatbread from the […]

Competing for the PERFECT Mac and Cheese

The Grate Canadian Cheese Cook-off to make the PERFECT mac and cheese was held at the Ex yesterday.  Contestants, all well known professional chefs from various parts of the country (BC, Nova Scotia, Alberta and Ontario, to be exact) were judged based on criteria such as taste, presentation and originality.  Judges included food writers, foodies, […]

Coconut Curry Tomato Soup

For myself, soup is not only a comforting dish, but what I enjoy most is the room you have to play when cooking a good soup. A simple twist of the wrist with your seasoning can completely change your dish! Currently, I am on a bit of a “curry kick”, specifically yellow curry, I swear […]

Deliciously Easy Baked Shakshuka

I first came across shakshuka at a local Aroma Espresso Bar, an Israeli coffee chain that has been popping up all over Toronto (I know that New York has a few as well, but I think Toronto has more per capita).  This egg and tomato sauce dish is delicious, and great for not just breakfast […]
