Homemade Potato Chips

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, dear readers! I am having some much needed downtime this week, but had to pop in with a little delicious nibble: Homemade Potato Chips! Mr. KitchenOperas and I recently devoured a Netflix series: Cooked by Michael Pollan (suggested by our dear friend Nicole). I have been on board with Pollan’s food politics since reading […]

Gluten-Free “Crappy Dinner Party” Recipes

Interest seems to be ramping up for a great idea right now: The Crappy Dinner Party. The idea is simple, have a dinner party with good friends, and follow the rules of The Kitchn: No housework is to be done prior to a guest’s arrival. The menu must be simple and not involve a special grocery […]

London: Neal’s Yard Dairy

Ok, my fellow Curd Nerds, this one’s for you. Last Saturday, as a part of my day trip with Francesca to London’s Borough Market, we made a pilgrimage to the happiest place in the land of cheese: Neal’s Yard Dairy.  Their Borough Market shop was in the perfect location for us to grab all the supplies […]

A Trip Through London’s Borough Market

Normally, my Saturday morning routine involves a trip to the farmers’ market with Mr. KitchenOperas, to pick up my food from the week straight from the farmers.  But last Saturday took me away from home, and into the heart of London. So what was I to do, but meet up with one of my oldest and dearest […]

No-Bake Chocolate Raspberry Tart (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Grain-Free & Vegan!)

One of my very favourite flavour combinations is dark chocolate + fresh raspberries.  I’ve put the combo into a gluten-free tart before, with my Raspberry Dark Chocolate Tart.  But it uses both cream and butter — and I want my dairy-free friends to be able to have dessert too… especially as I was invited for […]

Gluten-Free Apple Cider & Pork Stew 

I’ve got a new plan for lazy Sundays: make up a batch of something delicious that doesn’t need a lot of hands-on time, but sits and simmers in the oven doing its thing and getting delicious. My recent favourite?  This pork stew.  I’ve been making it since last fall, starting with a recipe from BBC Good […]

Phở Gà (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup)

Our week in Vietnam was the most delicious week of my life.  We were lucky enough to get to try many of the important local dishes in each region — and when our guides heard I was looking for something specific, they always made sure to take me to their favourite spot for that meal! […]

Gluten-Free Pork Meatballs

It’s official.  These meatballs are so good I’ve been making them weekly since last fall!  When we run out, I have a need to make more. I was inspired by Michelle’s Asian Meatballs over at Nom Nom Paleo, where the original recipe uses ground beef, sweet potato, shiitake mushrooms, and cilantro. As those are all […]

Turkey Taco Lettuce Boats

The lovely Ashley and I had a catch-up date today, and couldn’t figure out where to eat. So instead of trying to find a restaurant that inspired us, Ashley came over and we finished up the leftover Christmas turkey! I’m so glad we did, as it has inspired a whole new meal around here: turkey […]

I didn’t realise this until now, but today marks my 6-Year-Blogiversary for KitchenOperas!!!! Wow. SIX YEARS AGO I started my little corner of the food blog world, and I can hardly believe it. Thanks for all the love and support along the way. My favourite response is when I hear you say: “I tried one […]
