I am having such a good time with my new cast iron braiser.  Every chance I get, I use it.  I’m sure the novelty will wear off eventually, but I’m not 100% certain.  It’s so much fun….I’m a kitchen nerd! It browns things beautifully, it holds heat and spreads it evenly, and it weighs a

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

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

Once upon a time, I worked full time across town, while riding Calgary Transit – although reliable, not the fastest or most direct method of getting anywhere. Calgary is a sprawling city. Downtown is quite closed in but very small compared to many other major cities, however the suburbs are massive. There are trains that

I have a recipe for enchilada sauce up already, but it’s a quick recipe made with chili powder – which isn’t bad. Not at all. But I bought that big bag of guajillo chiles last week and woke up yesterday with the thought, “wonder what enchilada sauce made with chiles is like”? I had to

Again with true confession time – I’ve never had eggplant and I have most definitely never had eggplant parmesan. I was in Costco, and it seems a lot of my culinary outreaches have started there, and I bought a bag of baby eggplants – and then I spent a week trying to figure out what

Instant Pot Pork Chops

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Whenever I buy a pork loin, I chop it into a couple roasts and a couple packs of pork chops….last night was pork chop night, and I even remembered to take the pork chops out of the freezer hours before supper instead of minutes! I made these a week or so ago and thought I’d

Lemon Garlic Potatoes

I’m late to the flavoured potatoes game. I usually peel them, boil them, mash them, eat them. Bake them (by bake I mean microwave), put on toppings, eat them. Occasionally scallop them, sometimes french fry them. That’s pretty much my potato repertoire. I did try smashed potatoes a while ago and they were pretty good,

Greek Chicken Poutine

Let me start this with – this is in no way authentic poutine. I like regular poutine, but I usually make poutine because of an impulse, meaning I don’t have all the ingredients. 🙂 All right, last night was impulse poutine night….the original plan was to make Philly cheesesteak and then I thought Philly cheesesteak
