Artichoke Salsa with Chicken Thighs

I actually got this recipe from a blog I follow. It’s not exactly true to the recipe since I used chicken thighs and had no lemon pepper, but I don’t think I missed out on anything, flavour-wise, because I did make and use the artichoke salsa and it was amazing! I don’t know why this

Let me say this up front, because I screwed up when I did this….when making shawarma stuffed peppers – cook the rice! To reiterate – cook the rice!! Trust me. It smells amazing when cooking and all I wanted was to eat and it took forever and much added water along with a lid to

Once upon a time at Subway, the mancub didn’t want mustard on his sub….and from that I took that he didn’t like mustard – anywhere. Turns out, I was wrong. This frees up some restrictions – I figured he had to like mustard in some form – otherwise he could not be mine, but I

I kept seeing these bags of peppers at Costco. I was curious but too wussy to buy them for $9.00 only to find that I didn’t like them. Then I saw my daughter’s Instagram feed and lo and behold, she had made dinner with some charred shishito peppers. Immediately…..”how were they?” “Are they spicy?” Her

Crustless Quiche

The very first quiche I ever ate or made was one I found a recipe for somewhere that did not need a pie crust.  It was a Christmas morning and I wanted a breakfast I didn’t have to babysit.  Quiche fit the bill – stir some ingredients together and bake it – no monitoring needed.

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

It is brutally cold in Calgary and has been for two weeks or thereabouts. It’s been so cold, I actually did a little happy dance the other day when it rocketed up to -16! Right at this moment, it is -26 Celsius. That is -15 Fahrenheit. These are not temperatures I am thrilled about. The

There’s a story behind the spicy sausages….grab a chair and let’s get into it. I am a food canner. I have a 23 quart Presto pressure canner I have named Bubba…for no reason I can discern. My stove is old….I rent – if I owned, that stove would have been donated or given to someone

I always end up with leftover mashed potatoes. I overestimate how much we’re going to eat, or I underestimate how big those potatoes really are….one way or another, there’s always a small bowl of leftovers hiding in the fridge. The more I cook, and I cook a lot, the more little leftover bowls there will

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
