Classic Spaghetti Carbonara

With the amount of pasta I’ve been eating lately, you’d think that I’m carb-loading for a goddamn marathon. As some of you may already know, the only type of marathon I’ve been training for lately is the eating variety. But guess what? I’m totally fine with it. If quarantine has taught me anything, it’s that […]

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

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, […]

Have you ever tried to simultaneously dress three children for -30° weather? No? Then let me paint you a picture of what it’s like, amigos: Fight with them to put on their winter gear because being bundled to the point that one can barely move sucks. Convince them it’s necessary to avoid freezing their faces […]

Caprese Flatebread - Cashmere & Cocktails

Now and then I open the refrigerator, see that we’re out of leftovers and think to myself shit. Leftovers are my go-to when I’m home alone for a meal. It’s not that I don’t enjoy cooking, I just hate going through all the trouble for one. In times like these, I often lazily throw together […]

Homemade Hamburger Helper

Homemade Hamburger Helper Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

I know I’m not alone when I say that I grew up on Hamburger Helper. As a child of the 80s, I inevitably witnessed the massive wave of instant food gain popularity. It wasn’t the healthiest of times (we ate this boxed, preservative-fill deliciousness minimum once a week), but our parents didn’t really know any […]

Leftover Turkey Panini Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Last weekend was Thanksgiving here in Canadaland and in honour of the weird holiday (have you ever actually looked up the origin of Thanksgiving? Brutal.), I’ve decided to start this post with my own version of the “What Are You Thankful For?”, Bad Moms Edition. Before you burn me at the stake, I am obviously […]

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 […]
