Guest Post: Cheese-Stuffed Sweet & Spicy Mushroom Meatballs by The Girl on Bloor

We have a guest in the kitchen! We welcome The Girl on Bloor back into our kitchen and we couldn’t be more excited. Just in time for the holidays, Taylor is sharing a drool-worthy party app that will disappear fast! It may call for a double batch…

Hey everyone! Taylor here from The Girl on Bloor blog – I’m a full-time blogger that has lived on and off Bloor Street in downtown Toronto for the past six years. I just graduated with a Master’s degree in Journalism from Ryerson University, and have been developing recipes, taking photos and doing social media marketing for my own blog and other clients for the past year. It’s been an incredible journey so far, and I’m so excited to see what fun projects I’ll get to work on next!

Guest Post: Ham, Cheddar and Mushroom Muffins by The Brunette Baker

We have a guest in the kitchen! Jenny of The Brunette Baker is back with another family friendly meal that packs the nutrients in. These on-the-go bites will be a life-saver on those busy nights. 

Mealtime with kids can be a stressful feat. My daughter has loved most vegetables foods since her first bite of proper food – broccoli and spinach being amongst her favourites. She is honestly every parent’s dream at the dinner table. My son, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. His little body runs purely on sugar, carbs, more sugar, and the occasional carrot. Apparently (caramel) apples don’t fall far from the tree.

Guest Post: Vegan Mushroom & Butternut Squash Cottage Pie by The Gouda Life

We have a guest in the kitchen! We’re so happy to welcome back Kelly of The Gouda Life. Today, she’s brought us a drool-worthy pie that is vegan friendly, but will certainly make everyone at the table hungry. 

Recently, we had a dear friend return home after months of being on the road in Europe with his band. I wanted to make him something hearty and homey. Something to curb the chill in the air and that he may not have been able to get on the road. This cottage pie is vegan, as is our friend, and the mushrooms make it so meaty and rich. The sweetness of the squash make an amazing companion to the mushrooms and the smokey paprika warms the whole dish. If you’re not vegan, feel free to add real butter and even a little sprinkle of cheese in (and over) the mashed potato topping.
