RECIPE | Soba Noodle Salad with Roasted Sweet Chili Salmon

Noodle salads are one of my favourite dishes to make at home. They are easy to prepare and the ingredient options are limitless! All you need are fresh vegetables, some noodles, and protein. Soba is my go-to along with shrimps or chicken. This time around, I decided to try the pre-cooked and ready to eat salmon from our friends at The Saucy Fish Co. 

The Saucy Fish Co. offers a variety of fish and sauce pairings an available at all Superstore in Canada. The pre-cooked and ready to eat products are perfect for those that don’t have a lot of time to cook but still wants to enjoy a savoury meal.

Celebrating Chinese New Year with the help of Real Canadian Superstore

Things usually feel a bit dreary after Christmas is over, when there are no more Christmas songs to listen to and when it's time to officially take down that Christmas tree - in February. Luckily for us, we have Chinese New Years to celebrate! It's based on the Lunar calendar and usually changes every year and this year we're celebrating it on February 16th, 2018. 

Chinese New Years is a big deal. It's one of the only times our family ventures out of Mississauga to visit relatives and family friends to give them well wishes for the upcoming year and as a child, the best part of Chinese New Years were the red pockets. Now that I have an actual salary (that goes directly to bills), I'm appreciating the cultural aspects of the holiday more and enjoying the food a lot more.

Quite honestly, preparing everything for Chinese New Years can be quite time consuming. We're lucky to have an abundant number of Chinese grocery stores in Mississauga but I collect PC points so I absolutely love that I can get everything I need at Real Canadian Superstore. 

Chinese dishes always seemed so complicated to me as my mother never wanted to pass down her age-old secrets, but it actually ended up being really easy. It doesn't cost a lot to make, and the best part of going to Real Canadian Superstore is that you can pick up authentic brands like T&T and Rooster to create these classic dishes.

All these products are available year-round and the list goes on. Not only can you find classic Asian kitchen staples, you can find fresh vegetables like bok choy there as well! Some other staples that we love to pick up at Real Canadian Superstore is the Rooster condensed milk (goes GREAT with toast), Ovaltine malt drink and the Nong Shim Shrimp-flavoured chips, just to name a few!

I tried making Red Braised Pork Belly for the first time and I was pretty happy with the results.

TRAVEL | Our much needed getaway to Viamede Resort

It's almost been 5 years since we started the blog and it's been a whirlwind adventure to say the least. As much as we love it, it can be tiring to work our 9-5 jobs and be out all night for events only to hit repeat the next day. We eagerly jumped on an opportunity to spend a weekend away at Viamede Resort to get some rest and relaxation.

RECIPE| Celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Old El Paso

Happy Cinco de Mayo! We love that we can can celebrate it on a Friday this year! What better way to celebrate than with taco night with friends and Old El Paso?

We love entertaining but with a big group it can be daunting and tiring to cook and clean for so many people. With the help of Old El Paso, we were about to cut down the prep and clean time to spend more time with our friends!

RECIPE| Meal Prep made easy with Old El Paso!

The FoodSisterhood kitchen has been pretty quiet lately while we’ve been out and about in Toronto. While it’s great that we’ve been trying new things, it also means that we’ve become a little lazy with bringing lunches to work.

One of the main reasons for that is because there aren’t enough hours in a day to work 9-5, get a little exercise in and be able to cook and clean. We finally set aside some time on Sundays and with the help of a few OldEl Paso products, we were able to meal prep for the week ahead in a short amount of time!
