Cooking a whole fish is pretty easy. If you told me 5 years ago I would regularly cook whole fish I would think you were crazy. It seems so intimidating to buy and then cook – how to even cook it? Well this next post will give you an easy way to cook a wholeRead more
Every so often Matt and I make a charcuterie board for dinner. A bunch of meats and cheeses, pickles, olives, mustards, etc. This next recipe will make a great addition to any charcuterie board.
As my fridge starts clearing out and it is probably a day past when I should have gone grocery shopping I start getting creative how to use up the bits of food which remain. I hate throwing food away. This particular day I made use of the bits left in my produce drawer: half an onion, part ofRead more
Sadly, this next post I only have one photo. I make and come up with a lot of recipes during the course of the week. Many of which even though they are good I only make one time. It is the great recipes which I choose to blog about and make again. I was expecting this next recipeRead more
One of the things I loved growing up was the nights we would have breakfast for dinner. It was always nights my dad had a meeting or something keeping him from being home for dinner. I don’t think he enjoyed breakfast for dinner as much as the rest of the family. One of the things I love asRead more
I love potatoes. I could eat potatoes for every meal. There are so many things you can do with them. I would start listing idas off but I think it would start to sound like Bubba from Forest Gump. When I opened up my next cookbook on my shelf I was excited to see I’d beRead more
Confit means to cook meat in it’s own fat. The meat is seasoned and then cooked in fat at a low temperature. Then it can be preserved in that fat for a long period of time. Confiting is very easy to do, it takes very little hands on time and produces a very delicious cookedRead more
The Superbowl is coming this weekend, no I don’t watch sports, yes I had to Google to see when the Superbowl was, but I do enjoy a really great chicken wing. So I thought it was the perfect time to share this recipe which goes way beyond the expected chicken wing.
I am recently re-discovering pork chops. I never really cared for them growing up. But now as an adult I am finding them tastier than I remember them ever being. So I decided to try out stuffing a pork chop with gremolata – a parsley and lemon condiment. The results were VERY tasty!
As the weather is turning colder I find myself wanting to use my grill a few more times before it requires putting on boots and a coat to do some grilling. I picked up some salmon, which happened to be on sale and put together a delicious dinner!
One of the dishes my mom made pretty regularly growing up was a copy cat recipe for Olive Garden’s Capellini Pomodoro, a pasta dish with a sauce consisting of olive oil, garlic, diced tomatoes and basil. It was a great summer pasta dish, not to heavy with a nice light flavour. Since yesterday turned outRead more
Yikes it has been a while since my last post. Let’s not do that again! I guess I haven’t spent that much time cooking and coming up with recipes that seem good enough to share. But I did put together a tasty salad which I think it worthy of sharing, so back to blogging!
Tilapia is not a fish I normally buy. I know people who really like tilapia but I am not one of them. To be quite honest I think it tastes like dirt. But in the quest to broaden my cooking abilities and learn something new I decided to try making a blackened tilapia, and surprisinglyRead more
I love a really good piece of tuna. It tastes so fresh and delicious. And one of the best parts of making tuna is all you need to is sear it, so its cooked in minutes! Makes for a really fast dinner!
I really like it when I can showcase local ingredients and support local small businesses in my cooking. Southwestern Ontario has a lot to offer when it comes to local ingredients. A few blocks from my house is Robbie’s Gourmet Sausage Co. in Walkerville, a national award winning sausage company which makes creative and innovative sausagesRead more
a couple weekends ago Matt and I spent in Montreal, one of my favourite cities to escape to, in summer and EVEN in the winter! While there we went to Atwater Market, a great market btw, and snacked on some chicken satay from the Satay Brothers vendor in the market. They were so tasty IRead more
