The phorrito

As you know, I am a huge fan of converting foods of all nations into unusual formats (e.g. spaghetti burritos, bulgogi tacos, thanksgiving pizza, etc, etc). So when I saw this article on Foodbeast, I knew I must make a Phorritto. Have I told you the story of how I moved to a small island in BC […]

Ricotta gnocchi with pancetta, sage and pine nuts

I’m baaaaack…. And this time in my new(ish) house in my new(ish) kitchen. Ok I need new kitchen cabinets but look how much lovely natural light I get in here? Perfect for food photography. You will not that River remains an apt observer of the culinary arts. I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of something fun […]

Poached eggs and ramps on rye

Remember when I stumbled across a patch of wild leeks a few weeks ago and was ecstatic to collect them for some seasonal recipes? Imagine my surprise (yet again) to come across them in my crisper when rummaging around for lunch ideas! They hold up surprisingly well in the fridge. Of course I had to come up […]

Home-made sausage biscuit sandwiches!

The other day, whilst driving past a billboard advertising Tim Horton’s “Aged Cheddar Biscuit Sandwich”, I commented to Cheesler that the “aged” part seems weirdly placed, like it describes that the entire biscuit sandwich was aged. An elderly biscuit sandwich, if you will. That got me thinking, and I soon found myself with a real hankering […]

No bake strawberry shortcake with mascarpone

I know what you’re thinking, loyal readers of Soph n’ Stuff. “Surely this must be some mistake, I never see desserts on here!” First of all, don’t call me Shirley. Secondly, it is true that I am not much of a connoisseur of the saccharine arts. If I’m dining out, I will gladly choose a […]

You may recall reading about Jerk fish tacos with Señor Manzana and Chicken Shawarma salad with Roasted Rojo. Here at Soph n’ Stuff we are all about diversity in cuisines. Someone once told me I am […]

Wild leek and duck pizza

It was an early spring day. Crisply sunny, but the ground was still firm with frost. The two of us walked through the forest with our canine companion. He is prone to bursts of excited barking when we cross paths with other hikers and dogs, so I watched the trail ahead carefully. I was watching so […]

Blueberry buttermilk pancakes

Oh, the nostalgia of pancakes. Remember when you were a kid and you woke up on Saturday morning, with nothing but thoughts of cartoons and sun and playing outside and swimming and…wait…what is that smell? You wandered down the sun-dappled hallway in your pajamas with feet, your tiny fists rubbing your sleepy eyes, your hair […]

Bánh mì tacos

Woah here she goes. Watch out pork, she’ll chew you up. Woah here she goes. She’s a Bánh mì eater. Yes, that’s me and I loves me some Bánh mì. It is becoming quite ubiquitous in my life, and I hope it will for you too. I’ve made Bánh mì sandwiches, Bánh mì burgers, Bánh […]

Chicken shawarma salad featuring Roasted Rojo

Ah, shawarma. The middle eastern sandwich composed of meat grilled on a spit and wrapped in a grease-soaked pita. A staple of urban lunch crowds and bastion of post-nightclub fast food seekers alike. There is nothing quite like that combination of seasoned grilled meat, tangy pickled turnips, pungent garlic sauce and spicy hot sauce. Throw […]
