Easy Breezy Beefy Stroganoff

Easy Breezy Beefy Stroganoff

Whenever I interview a chef or cook or foodie-like person, I inevitably ask them to describe their favourite childhood meal. It never fails. They get a dreamy, cloudy, soft look on their face as they drift back into their days of innocence. More often than […]

Tequila Corn

Tequila Corn

It’s rare to meet someone who doesn’t like corn on the cob. An epitome of summer foods, the smell of it boiling strong enough to draw people in from miles around. Unless you are blessed with a rack of metal wires across your teeth, it’s […]

Steak and Yorkie, All Wrapped Up

Steak and Yorkie, All Wrapped Up

Clearly I love to cook. I’m obsessed with food, but sometimes…I just don’t want to bother. I’m tired, it’s so messy, or just can’t decide what to make. Eating out is a fantastic option, when it’s in the budget…not so much lately! Ordering in, same […]

Curry Chicken Wraps

Curry Chicken Wraps

It was a crazy, busy weekend. Prom, parties and the regular onslaught of kid activities. The rain stopped once or twice to let the clouds refuel…that was it. So by Sunday evening I was in NO mood to cook anything fancy. Unfortunately I still wanted a […]

Fast and Furious Fried Rice

Of course the wonderful people at Huong Lan don’t call their fried rice Fast or Furious. To them and all their devoted patrons it’s known as #39-Special Fried Rice. However, it was so easy and so tasty that I just couldn’t help myself. I admit […]

Gingah Ninja Salmon

Love when kitchen experiments go right! Let’s admit it…it doesn’t always work out that way. This is Ninja fast, heart healthy and enticing enough to serve to company! That’s right, you’ve got this. How good it is? It was soo good that my littles gobbled […]

Food Coma Stuffing

Food Coma Stuffing

You want to get into a “food fight”, you start comparing stuffing. People are very defensive about their family stuffing recipe. There are so many different varieties and they are all…the best one ever! This is why I was not going to share mine. What’s […]

Saucy Cranberries a L’Orange

Saucy Cranberries a L’Orange

The first time I tried home-made cranberry sauce was at my then-fiance’s house at Christmas. Growing up, we did a lot of things from scratch, but cranberry sauce was not one of them. My mind was blown…it tasted soooo much better! Judging by the cans […]

Gettin’ Freekeh Fish Pie!

Gettin’ Freekeh Fish Pie!

I confess to being on a food mission over this past year. After relocating our entire life to a new community. I’m no longer working…officially. This kitchen is more spacious and well-equipped. We now live minutes away from many fantastic food sources. I’m inspired by the […]

Cuckoo’s Linguine alla Pescatora

Cuckoo’s Linguine alla Pescatora

Soooo, I’ve been doing this for a while now. I’m used to waiting for people to send in recipes, not knowing exactly what I’ll get. Each one has a different…uhm, format, shall we say. Some have a very firm structure, some a little less formal, […]
