Leek and Lima Bean Soup

Leek and Lima Bean Soup - Cashmere & Cocktails Blog

Am I the only one out there who feels like a bag of milk lately? All of a sudden, I find myself having to inhale deeply to button my jeans, my fingers are starting to look like sausages thanks to all of the salty (and delicious) foods I’ve been eating and worse yet, my bloated […]

Zuppa Toscana Soup Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

From the months of January to April, I would gladly hibernate with the bears. Seriously folks, it’s hella cold in my part of the world. Tomorrow’s forecast reads -29°C and my one wish is to be in a place where the only thing frozen is my margarita. Unfortunately, this isn’t my current reality so I […]

Bacon, Apple and Brie Grilled Cheese

Bacon and Brie Grilled Cheese Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Oh, bacon – let me count the ways I love thee. Alone, in a salad, over a roasted turkey or even smothered in chocolate, there is no wrong way to eat bacon. For this recipe (I shouldn’t even call it a recipe honestly because it’s so easy), I went ultra-simple: a few slices of bacon, […]

Creamy Italian Sausage and Pasta

Creamy Italian Sausage Pasta Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Truth bomb: mothering sucks sometimes. To be clear, I’m not referring to the kids. I’m talking about everything else that goes along with the job. Take yesterday for example: I spent three long hours standing in the kitchen after finishing a hectic work day. Don’t get me wrong, I obviously love to cook or I […]

Harvest Chipotle Chili

Harvest Chipotle Chili Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

When I first assembled this Harvest Chipotle Chili recipe, I thought it may taste hella weird. It was inspired by a recipe in Midwest Living and I’ll be honest with you; the idea of sweet potatoes in chili was both intriguing and somewhat off-putting to me. I decided to try it nonetheless and the result […]

One Pot Chicken and Sundried Tomato Pasta

I recently posted a survey on my Instagram stories (if you’re not already following me please do @cashmereandcocktailsblog) to better understand what content my readers (you) are interested in seeing. I’m not going to lie; when I initially started the blog three months ago, I had no idea what it would entail. I thought running […]

Classic Beef Stew

With five humans under one roof, the struggle to please everyone in the kitchen is real. I’ve come to the conclusion that our children will make a fuss about dinner every night just for the sake of arguing. Recently, I had an Oprah Ah-ha moment and realized that there simply isn’t a way to please […]

Smoked Salmon Flatbread

So here’s the thing; my boyfriend and I do our fair share of entertaining. This is especially true during the winter months when our trailer is closed (more on this gem HERE), friends aren’t travelling and we are under house arrest due to our unwillingness to pay for a babysitter. While the evenings are BYOB […]

Coconut Curry Meatballs

Days when the inside of our home smells like a Thai food market are never bad ones. Sure, the kids complain but that’s a given unless I’m serving chicken fingers or KD. With the help of my boyfriend who has mastered the art of selective hearing, I’m slowly learning to drown out the whining surrounding […]

Spicy Mango Chutney

Our household has a very love-hate relationship with mango chutney. While I would smother that perfectly balanced sweet and spicy shit onto just about anything, my male counterpart doesn’t like it at all. I’m not exactly sure what it is about the chutney that he finds so offensive but the silver lining to his unwavering […]
