After the spending an abundance of summer days in front of the barbecue, there is nothing that the hubs and I enjoy quite like a roast bird. Not only does it make an excellent and super fancy-shmancy dinner, but the oven also helps heat the house. Cooking absolutely has its perks. Warm home, delicious dinner...that's a win-win combo.

There are many things I love about my husband. He considers rollerblading aerobic exercise, has read the entire Harry Potter series and sings 80's hits to our pup, substituting her name into the lyrics. But perhaps the best part of all is the fact that he can cook. The man makes an amazing pork roast, perfect pad thai and his lava cakes are to die for. However, we have very different opinions when it comes to meatloaf. Having grown up eating my mom's to-die for recipe, I have insatiable winter craving for this dish while the hubs, a natural-born Canadian, never at it growing up. Perhaps that's why I was so giddy when he offered to make Spinach Dip Stuffed Turkey Meatloaf for me last week. Oh joy!

Nothing says good morning quite like a freshly baked muffin. They're just so perky and cheerful, the perfect companion to a steaming mug of coffee on a cool fall morning. Or around 10:30. Or maybe 2:45. Let's just say good morning all day long to this muffin, because it's so darn tasty you'll be eating it around the clock. I speak from personal experience, folks.

I have an unhealthy obsession with coconut oil. At any given time, we have several containers floating around the house. There's a jar in the kitchen devoted to baking and frying while another resides in the bathroom for face washing, hair conditioning and moisturizing. Thankfully, it's a heart-healthy ingredient and a happy obsession. But as I eyed the five cans of various coconut milks and creams in my pantry last week, it became evident that I was sliding the dangerous slope and becoming a coco-hoarder. That meant one thing - it was time to get cooking with coconut.
