I had a plan – shortcuts all the way. I was going to the grocery store after work, going to grab a few things for a dessert I want to try and, while I was there, I was going to grab a jar of pasta sauce and a loaf of French bread or a couple

Fall, despite what the calendar says, has fallen in Calgary. Warm days (mostly) and cool nights. The leaves are falling – we really only have three colours here – green, yellow then brown. We only rarely have other leaf colours – the occasional purple, and the very, very occasional red. And that’s pretty much all

I love homemade potato soup! I love potatoes, but potato soup, with bacon and cheddar? Mmmm, mmmm, MMMMM!! My son, however, does not like potato soup. He’s broken somewhere, deep inside. He likes potatoes, he likes bacon, he likes cheese, but blend that soup smooth and he wants nothing to do with it. Good thing

Funny story – I actually wanted noodles for supper tonight…..and somehow I ended up at beef pie. The internet is a wondrous thing. You start somewhere, looking for inspiration and end up a million pages away. Anyway, this can be made with a pie crust to completely enclose it, just a top pie crust or

I have to admit it – I make my own sun-dried tomatoes. Whenever I can’t get through the tomatoes I buy before they start going soft, I either toss them in the freezer (whole) or I slice them up and put them on the dehydrator for a few hours. When they’re done, I put them

Let me preface this with – this is in no way authentic or anything. It’s just easy and sometimes that’s what you need. Also, you don’t need to have an “Instant Pot” – any pressure cooker will work, but you will need to know how to use it. I think – actually, I know –

The other night, I cast around for something for supper for probably half an hour. My birthday is the 29th of August, every year, in case you’re wondering, and the mancub bought me an electric griddle because he had to work on my day and he couldn’t hang out with me. When I got home

I ran across this recipe the other day while looking for alternatives to jambalaya. This wasn’t actually an alternative, but somehow I got here. So worth it. I admit, I changed it a bit. Evaporating the sauce made no sense to me, our house is all about sauce. I didn’t cook the rice in with

Mid August has descended upon Calgary, and so has cooler weather. It was a whopping 9C today. 34C a week or so ago, and 9C today. I was messaging with someone today and they mentioned that there was snow in Alberta last week – wasn’t sure where, exactly, but the rumour is out there. Given

Once upon a time, I worked full time across town, while riding Calgary Transit – although reliable, not the fastest or most direct method of getting anywhere. Calgary is a sprawling city. Downtown is quite closed in but very small compared to many other major cities, however the suburbs are massive. There are trains that
