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

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 –

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 had a plan – shortcuts all the way. I was going to the grocery store after work, going to grab a few things for a dessert I want to try and, while I was there, I was going to grab a jar of pasta sauce and a loaf of French bread or a couple

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

I ran across this recipe the other day while looking for alternatives to jambalaya. This wasn’t actually an alternative, but somehow I got here. So worth it. I admit, I changed it a bit. Evaporating the sauce made no sense to me, our house is all about sauce. I didn’t cook the rice in with

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
