Caprese Flatbread

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?

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.

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 […]

Pizza Mac ‘n Cheese

Want to blow your kids’ minds? I’ve got three words for you: pizza mac ‘n cheese. (Wait, is that four words? Does the “n” count? Whatever.) The big kids went back to school this week and my son has finally reached the monumental age where he is allowed to use the cafeteria microwave. For this […]

Chicken Souvlaki

You know when you’re with someone so much that you can predict the exact words that will come out of their mouth before they even say it? This is what happened when my boyfriend walked in and saw me making Chicken Souvlaki. “You should have used chicken thighs,” he said eyeing the chicken breasts. Living […]

Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki; is it a dip? Is it a sauce? Does it matter? If you’re anything like me, you’ll use this Tzatziki recipe on just about everything. It’s crazy versatile and can even be used as a sandwich spread instead of mayonnaise. Thanks to the cucumber and lemon, this sauce adds a cool and refreshing layer […]
