Yeah. I’m pretty sure that title is going to lead to some very confused blog traffic… and now I’m about to bring up my Grandma.
My feisty Grandmother makes this particular dessert, “Sex in a Pan”, and it is always a huge hit. If you Google it you’ll find lots of slight variations on the same recipe but basically everyone agrees it’s insane just how delicious it is. When I try to tell people about it and say “My grandmother’s Sex in a Pan is the best” it earns me a lot of really weird looks.
Sex in a Pan – so much deliciousness
I have to admit, I’ve never been a fan of meatloaf. It has nothing to do with taste, it’s just the concept. Meat is just something I felt strongly should not come in loaf form. Bread? Yes. Ground meat? No. But I came across a recipe for mini meatloaves and had all of the ingredients on hand, so thought I would give it a try. It was super quick and easy to make, leftovers are great for Andrew’s lunch and it’s fairly healthy.
Quick and easy meatloaf
All week I’ve been unpacking boxes and getting settled into the new apartment. It’s already starting to feel like home, so welcoming and bright (and now we have a dishwasher – score!)
Whenever I get a new cookbook I like to leaf through it and put post-its on recipes that I want to try. Because I’m obsessive like that. Breakfast tacos is another recipe I came across by Chef Michael Smith that I will probably tweak and make more often, mainly because it blends two of my favorite foods – breakfast and Mexican food. (Side note: if you live in Toronto and want to try some amazing Mexican food and the best Margaritas I’ve tasted, visit Milagro on Queen street. Their panela burrito is addictive – add chorizo).
The colder it gets, the more I start to miss summer. I made this amazing fresh quinoa salad with lemon, mint and cucumbers – it would be perfect for a summer picnic. I honestly love a good picnic. One of my friends gave me a really nice wicker picnic basket as a wedding gift and I can’t wait to use it (it even came with dishes and a blanket – she went all out to feed my crazy outdoor eating obsession. Thanks Meg!)
This recipe is from a Chef Michael Smith cook book and it was really easy to make so I’m just going to summarize.
