Blueberry Muffins

Originally published May 12, 2012 Blueberries are a Superfood for a reason – just about every single thing about them is good, and there’s not a single bad word to be said about them. But, try telling my kids that. Blueberries have powerful antioxdiants that do a number of good things for you including keeping […]

Laura’s Cauliflower Gratin

Originally published May 16, 2012 I watched the episode that Laura Calder made this dish and it was one of those ones that looked so good I had to make it that night. I did substitute in cheddar cheese for the pricier cheese that I almost never have on hand – Gruyere cheese, which Laura […]

Poker Party Potato Skins

Originally published on May 23, 2012 What can be better than a plate of golden crispy, perfect potato skins? According to my husband’s poker buddies, nothing. They’re the perfect indulgence and when you bake them, they’re just that much healthier for you (though don’t kid yourself, these really aren’t healthy for anybody.) Typically the skins are deep-fried […]

Prime Rib

Originally published on June 5, 2012 So it’s a prime rib recipe; what could be bad? Nothing, if you don’t just treat it like any other rib and make the mistake of just putting it in the oven. So that being said, and everyone agreeing that prime rib is delicious, here are a few facts […]

Lunchbox Strawberry Rhubarb Pies

Originally published on June 9, 2012 Rhubarb always takes me back to when I was just a little kid. We used to go over to my grandma and grandpa’s every Sunday, and strawberry-rhubarb pies were often served for dessert. They were some of my favourite, but it wasn’t just the pies that I loved. When […]

Cheese String Bites

Originally published on June 30, 2012 Would you believe that I had to make these three times before I could get a picture of them? (And even still, I’m sorry the quality of the pic isn’t so good.) The first time I made them, I had taken them from Pinterest where the author had said to only […]

Flank Steak Pinwheels

Originally published on August 20, 2012 One of my favourite things on earth is the combination of blue cheese and steak, and that’s why I chose to stuff my pinwheels with gorgeous creamy Danish blue cheese. And well, spinach and red peppers just seemed like a natural fit to go along with those two ingredients. […]

Caramel Apples

Originally published on January 1, 2014 I know, I know. Halloween is over, so why am I posting a recipe for caramel apples on New Year’s Day? Because today is also Apple Gifting Day. I don’t know the origin behind this food holiday, and a quick Google search only told me about the “12 Days […]

Flour Tortillas

Originally published on January 2, 2014 This was one of those recipes that was born from necessity. I didn’t have any bread in the house, but I needed something for the girls’ lunches – and there was no time to go shopping to pick up more. I could have just made my go-to sourdough bread, but […]

Gordon’s Green Bean Satay

Originally published on January 3, 2014 I saw Gordon Ramsay cook this dish on his Food Network show, “Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Home Cooking.” (Don’t have the app yet, as I’m waiting for a reason to spend $6.99 on such a thing, but it is available in the App Store.) I was intrigued that someone combined […]
