Welcome to Canadian Cooking Adventures
Hi name is Jacqueline and I’ll be your host in this culinary adventure. If you’re looking for easy to prepare, healthy home cooked meals from all different kinds of cuisines then you are sure to find a bit of it all here, on this ever evolving site! So you want to know a little about me eh? Well, I’m a thirty something year old proud Canadian who loves to prepare healthy home cooked meals from scratch. I am also a coffee addict, thrill seeker, huge outdoor enthusiast and lover of animals, not to mention a passionate traveler who is always looking forward to my next adventure. I handle all the recipe development, photography, creative design, content, and technical elements behind Canadian Cooking Adventures.
When I started this space it was a way to share my two main passions… Cooking + Adventure. As a Canadian, I know all too well how hard it is most times to cook from scratch and opting for takeout has pretty much become a way of life for many of us these days. But what we are really craving is real foods with fresh ingredients, right? I’ve spent the better part of the last decade learning to cook diverse meals from scratch, I’m now sharing what I have learned with you. Here you will find a collection of tried and true recipes; some traditional and others with a twist. With my easy-to-follow instructions, you too can learn to master just about any dish. So skip the take out or those, quick-to-make, processed meals and lets get back to some real home cooking!
In addition to being a platform for sharing recipes, Canadian Cooking Adventures is also a place where my love of food, travel and life come together. This website is the heart of who I am and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share it all with you. I hope you find your time here interesting, delicious and inspiring.

Okay, so what is here for YOU?
So, you want to know a little more about me, eh?
Okay… let’s go! 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 got to have my “double-double” in the mornings or I’m really not that nice of a person. During the summer months, I’m known to be drinking absurd amounts of iced lattes. I make these at home, in a large jug, to last me through the week. Being a huge foodie, I like to go out to eat at least once per week. However the majority of my time is spent cooking diverse meals at home from scratch to share with those I love. All my recipes are triple tested by the “Canadian Cooking Adventures” team.
I reside with my wonderful, supportive and handsome taste testing partner Jason, and our fur kids who truly are a big part of making our house more of a home.
What’s my food preference? Well if I could eat any cuisine for the rest of my life, it would be Thai or Indian. Of course that’s not 100% true, I’m pretty addicted to Mexican 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, Italian 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?
What is my food philosophy? Everything in moderation, with with a strong emphasis on real food, by eating less processed foods. With that being said, I also like to balance that with eating a vegetarian diet at least 3x a week.
Thanks for stopping by, and taking the time to visit my site.
