More AMAZING Black Bean Burgers

I was up visiting my parents today, and when it came time to prepare lunch, my Mom had an idea to try out a new veggie recipe she’d found. So we took a pretty basic Black Bean Burger recipe, and made it fabulous, flavourful and colourful! I also whipped together a herbed mayo to go […]

Big Decisions….

Life is a funny thing, isn’t it? Circumstances change, we age, and we grow. All of these things have happened in my life, and I’d like to think that they’ve made me into the person I am today, better in some ways and in others, not so much. Nearly eight years into Cat Can Cook […]

Vinegar Cleaner

This week marks the passing of my dear Grandmother, Katie. It’s hard to believe she left us – five years ago now I think it is. Those who have my book, or follow me here on Cat Can Cook, know I loved her dearly, and she taught me so much about cooking and household “stuff.” […]

PC Pad Thai Cooking Sauce

It’s been one of those crazy weeks. Quite an emotional roller-coaster in fact! Early in the week I got some amazing news about my other business Elanne & Ivy.
