I love sushi. Not raw fish sushi. Not fish eggs sushi. Okay, I love it when it’s not very adventurous. It saddens me to say that, but while I will eat many things, I only just got past not being able to eat chicken if I cooked it. Completely weird, I know. Anyway, love the

We are still in the midst of a cold snap, so soup is on my mind all the time. It’s great for supper, great for lunch – warm, comforting, goes a long way, uses ingredients I have so I don’t have to go outside. Just before Christmas I bought a big bag of pre-cooked shrimp…then

Once upon a when-my-kids-were-little, I would ask the question, “what do you guys want for supper”, and a little voice would answer (generally the mancub), far more often than I appreciated, “Hamburger Helper”. Sorry, Betty Crocker, but I hate that stuff. It’s bland and the sauce is plastic-y and no amount of dressing it up

My furnace died a week and a half ago. 11 days it took to get a new one in and hooked up. I truly wish I owned my house and wasn’t relying on someone else to do & fix things. When I initially called in the problem with the furnace, the exhaust fan on the

This soup was a happy accident. I started out making Tuscan Wild Mushroom soup and didn’t have any sun-dried tomatoes (WHAT?!) and some other things required by the recipe, and then I wasn’t in love with the flavour of what I did have, so I oomphed it up a little. Ingredients: 1 bell pepper 2-4

Friday and Saturday I absolutely could not be bothered to cook anything for supper. I had no ideas, had no motivation, no interest in making anything. So we had McDonald’s on Friday and Chinese food on Saturday. I feel no shame. I consider it a bit of a reset. Tonight, however, there was no way

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

Fresh Mexican Spring Rolls

Victorious day for me today. The only time I made fresh spring rolls previously, they were freakishly chewy and I ended up pulling the wrapper off and just eating the filling. I bought some wrappers about a month ago, because I really felt I needed to try them again – lots of people eat them,

I had a real lack of inspiration today, but a few odds and ends that needed to be used up before they went bad. There were some flour tortillas that, frankly, I’m shocked Tali didn’t hunt while we slept and tear apart by the front door – she’s a peculiar cat with a thing for

I’ve had a sort-of-like/hate relationship with sloppy joes. How is it that every child knows about sloppy joes – they have them at someone else’s house or something and then you get tormented until you make them? I used to take the shortcut and use the can of Manwich – which I hate (sorry Hunt’s).
