Welcome to my kitchen! It’s where I feel most creative, most at home and most content. I am very fortunate that my job lets me play with words and with food. I love simple dishes prepared with passion and am always seeking new methods and inspiration to make food as fun and flavourful as possible. I’m also an enthusiastic explorer of faraway lands and cuisines. If you like the recipes you find here, please consider visiting my other food blog, Paula Roy’s Whole Foods in Half the Time. 

You can find additional recipes and other food-related articles in Ottawa At Home magazine, where I serve as food editor. I’m also excited to announce that I have a new TV show, Paula Roy’s Favourite Foods. We have created fifteen episodes thus far and they’ve been airing multiple times each week on Rogers TV in Ottawa (Channel 22). They’ll soon be available on YouTube as well. You can find all the show’s recipes here on the blog (search on Paula Roy’s Favourite Foods)


During my fifteen years of working almost exclusively as a food journalist, I have enjoyed considerable success as a freelance recipe developer and spokesperson for national brands. Here is a selection of the companies I have worked with to date; please contact me at constantlycooking {at} gmail dot com to inquire about my rates and services:

    I am in love with your blog. To be perfectly honest, every recipe here is something I would absolutely love to cook and eat. I can’t wait to try out the recipe for almond cake… or the cream puffs. I’ve always wanted to learn to make cream puffs, but I thought it was incredibly complicated. My sister is going to absolutely die of happiness when I surprise her with a plate full!

      Hi Louise, glad you liked the recipe. They really are delicious. Yes, you absolutely can make them ahead. I would reheat them gently in a moderate oven (about 300F). Hope you enjoy making (and eating) them!

    Hello Paula!

    Congratulations on your new show! That is just awesome. A friend of mine introduced your recipes to me – the first one being that yummy kale salad one where your husband said, I Love kale! It was my first kale experience and your recipe made me exclaim the same thing your husband did!

    Thanks for sharing your recipes and your Love of cooking with us!

    I am really impressed with your site and the great recipes. I saw your show on Rogers last night for the first time and it was great to actually watch a cooking show that doesn’t include judges and a competition! It immediately follow Ottawa Eats which I also enjoy watching. You should do a show on your local culinary adventures. Your trip to Sutton QC was inspiring and I want to go do the same trip. It’s so nice to have this information. Your website is now favourited and I will be constantly checking it for your recipes!

    • Paula Roy says:

      Sandra, thank you so much for the kind words – they mean so much! I just love playing in my kitchen so if I can inspire others to enjoy food more, that’s very gratifying. Stay tuned for lots more deliciousness (and another adventure post) coming your way very soon! ~ Paula
