My mom used to make split pea soup when I was a kid. I remember the summer of cold mint split pea soup – not fondly, but I do remember it. It actually was better heated up, but to this day I cannot get my head around cold soup. Mom spent about 6 months or

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

The family all drove out to Canmore today. As a collective, it’s one of our favourite places to be. The smell of the trees, the quieter streets (except in summer), the fewer tourists than Banff (there are places to park!), the river – it’s beautiful. It’s where my now son-in-law proposed to my daughter –

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

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

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 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 opened the freezer last night, trying to figure out what to have for supper. I had in my head something chicken and then, in the process of moving things around, a package of pork belly landed in my hand and chicken was off the table. Nice meal planning, right? So then, what to do

I am going to preface this entire entry with the caveat: when I cook vegetables, I cook them until they are basically just hot, with lots of crunch still left (except potatoes). I have a canner. I love my canner. It’s a huge, shiny thing of beauty, but I do not like canned vegetables. Canned
