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 gave away the leftovers in my freezer a couple of weeks ago. I went grocery shopping, came home with the loot and realized I had no room to put anything in the freezer – not the chest freezer, not the freezer over the fridge. So I made an emergency call to a friend and

I honestly don’t know what to call this. I wanted to call it Clean Out the Vegetable Drawer…and Chicken, but decided that, while descriptive, it was just a wee bit long. This is one of those recipes where, if you don’t have something, you just substitute something else, or skip it entirely. If I hadn’t

** http://www.handcraftedbyradar.com for more recipes ** My dad, being Swiss, takes all the credit for introducing this to my mom & I when he joined our family. He’s a bit of a cheeky man, but we love him dearly. He used to hunt for the presents at Christmas time, and he was absolutely relentless, no

** http://www.handcraftedbyradar.com for more recipes ** I don’t love fast food. Actually, I don’t love buying fast food and I don’t love what is often in fast food, so I frequently try to make a version of whatever I’ve tried at home – this does not mean, however, that I don’t sometimes have a Big

Nachos Our Way

These are not restaurant nachos, these are fill your belly nachos. Sneak some veggies into your kids nachos. Put the toppings you like onto your nachos. Probably too much sodium so I don’t look too close nachos. We have made nachos many, many, many ways. I’ve had them made with Velveeta, which just doesn’t work

I don’t know if everyone gets these, but 7-Eleven has rolling heat rack things where they keep hotdogs & taquitos warm and their taquitos are awesome…buffalo chicken is a particular favourite. I can’t justify how much money they cost, though, so occasionally, I am compelled to make some at home. Now, you can wander off

Here I am, confessing again. I have never liked stuffed peppers. Never. I always give them a try and there’s always something not quite right. Just a “wrongness” that I can’t define, but wrong nonetheless. And yet, like the insane person I am, I keep making them…but last night, they worked for me. Baffling. Another
