Why Canadian Cooking Adventures?
When I first started this space it was a way to share my two main passions… Cooking + Adventure. Being a proud Canadian, I thought the name was perfect.
So what is Canadian cuisine? Well Canadian cuisine has varied from region to region over the past century, being the earliest cuisines of Canada having come from First Nations, English, Scottish and French roots. Today “Canadian” cuisine is more difficult to define and is more of a smorgasbord of cuisines.
I’ve spent the better part of the last decade learning to cook diverse meals from scratch, it’s my passion. Now I’m sharing what I have learned with you. Here you will find an ever evolving collection of tried and true recipes; some traditional and others with a twist.
With my easy-to-follow instructions, I believe anyone can can learn to master just about any dish. So Skip The Take Out tonight & those, quick-to-make, processed meals and lets get back to some real home cooking together.
Our food philosophy!
Here are some of my most popular Canadian Cooking Adventure recipes!

So, you want to know a little more about me, eh?
Okay… let’s go! Well, I’m a thirty something year old, coffee addict, thrill seeker, huge outdoor enthusiast and animal lover, not to mention a passionate traveler who is always looking forward to my next adventure.
If there was one thing I could not live without it would be my morning coffees. Which I drink religiously every day, I’ve just gotta have my “double-double” in the mornings or I’m really not that nice of a person.
During the summer months, I like to spend a lot of time at our local farmers markets. Looking for the freshest fruits and veggies. That is my JAM!
Being a huge foodie, I like to go out to eat a couple times per month. However the majority of the time I’m home cooking diverse meals from scratch to share with those I love. All my recipes are triple tested by the “Canadian Cooking Adventures” team.
Those who know me personally know that I love animals. And have dedicated most of my life to caring for our domesticated ones or advocating for them. In fact there has not been a time in my life that I have not owned and or fostered.
What’s my food preference?
Well if I could eat any cuisine for the rest of my life, it would be FRESH fruit. I love fruit! However when it comes to cultural dishes. Chinese, Italian or Indian is high up there for me. Of course that’s not 100% true, I’m pretty addicted to Mexican and Thai foods these days too. Oh and anything that has Curry in it, I just can’t get enough of all those Spices. Not to mention, I do love Greek and French foods too, oh and if there are any desserts that are “frozen desserts“, that includes, ice cream, frozen yogurt and frozen cheesecake then I’m all in. I just can’t choose can I?
