I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Watermelon "Tuna" Steaks

Surprising how watermelon, when baked, takes on a fish-like texture. These mind bending little vegan steaks are spicy, savory and just a little bit sweet. The perfect hydrating treat this summer! 


half a seedless watermelon
sesame seeds
crushed nori

2 tbsps soya sauce
1 tbsp rice or white wine vinegar
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp minced ginger
1 tsp minced garlic

Cut the watermelon in sliced wedges 3/4 - 1" thick. I had a watermelon that was not particularly tasty so this marinade really punched up the flavour! Combine the marinade ingredients and spoon onto both sides of the "steaks". Leave to marinate on the counter for up to 1 hour.

Bake in a 350°F oven for 40 minutes.

Then sear on the grill or in a pan for just a few minutes to get a little char on.

Garnish with sesame seeds and crushed nori.
I can't tell you just how good these were!!
