I don’t like regular banana bread – I will disguise it by making banana muffins or I will add chocolate chips to it or anything, really, rather than make plain banana bread. It has bad connections for me and I find it’s always…wet and heavy. Blech! I do like chocolate, though, and I always seem

Let me preface this with get the cheese cold, or just mix the cheese and bacon into the meat, unless someone has a suggestion as to how to keep the cheese in the burger. I made a cranberry habanero topped brie around Canadian Thanksgiving and still had about half of a brie round left. Couldn’t

No, there’s no actual steak….it’s basically a burger with no bun but plenty of gravy. Doesn’t matter to me, though, it tastes really good and that’s what I want from my food. Flavour! This is a comfort meal component for me. It’s a hot meal on a chilly evening. It’s simple ingredients. It’s inexpensive ingredients.

I’m not a fanatic for pumpkin spice. Don’t come for me with pitchforks and torches! I like pumpkin, although I cannot fathom why anyone would make pumpkin soup with sweet spices….I definitely prefer savoury soup. It isn’t that I don’t like pumpkin spice particularly, I love the components of it – I don’t actively hate

I made sausages on Saturday! I mean, I ground the meat, added in flavouring, put into sausage casings, made sausages on Saturday. Let me just say, it is probably better as a two person job, but is completely doable with one person. I’m a bit…a lot….of a kitchen gadget nerd. I don’t have a lot

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

Baked Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese

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

I have discovered that lemon and olive oil are actually a pretty tasty salad dressing. I resisted this my entire life until now. I could not see how this could be in any way anything other than an oily mess. Don’t make it with vegetable oil for a start! I didn’t realize what a difference

Instant Pot Pasta and Meatballs

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 –
