Chipotle Salmon with Avocado, Apple, Yam Salsa

Chipotle Salmon with Avocado, Apple, Yam Salsa

One of my favourite things about the liquor stores in British Columbia, besides the awesome craft beer selection, is that you can pick up a seasonal magazine called Taste. It’s full of wine, spirits and beer reviews; and tonnes of recipes as well! That’s where I found the inspiration for this chipotle salmon with avocado, apple, yam salsa recipe. I didn’t change their recipe too much; I used avocado oil instead of olive oil; parsley instead of cilantro; an Ambrosia…

Whole Wheat Hot Cross Buns with Dried Berries

First off I have to admit I have never had a hot cross bun before, and I am not sure why?! They are bready, and I like bready things; and they also have a lot of flavour with all the spices added, and I love spice! So since it’s Easter, I have been seeing a lot of hot cross bun recipes floating around the web, and as I checked them out, I realized I needed to make them! I changed…

Tropical Ale Vinaigrette

Tropical Ale Vinaigrette

Homemade vinaigrettes for salads are not uncommon in my house. Often I will mix a vinegar with an oil, some herbs and spice and throw it on the salad of the day and it always tastes exceptional! When my friend gave me a six pack of Dead Frog’s Tropic Vice, Tropical Fruit Ale, I decided to try it in a vinaigrette; a tropical ale vinaigrette!

Rhubarb Barbecue Sauce ~ Plus a Rhubarb Recipe Roundup!

Rhubarb Barbecue Sauce ~ Plus a Rhubarb Recipe Roundup!

If you follow along, you know that I have written about rhubarb before; and as long as I can remember we had rhubarb growing on my parent’s acreage and my mom would use it to make cakes, sauces and then give the rest away. Now that I am all grown up and on my own, living in the city without a rhubarb plant, I am lucky to be one of those people that my mom gives rhubarb to! I thought a…

Cheesy Grilled Corn Mini Tarts

Cheesy Grilled Corn Mini Tarts

I made a batch of corn chowder and delicious shrimp and corn foil packs and now I have these tasty cheesy grilled corn mini tarts to share. These bite sized corn tarts are a great appetizer and are kind of ridiculous how good they really are! Once you pick one up, it’s hard to stop! The sweet corn balanced with…

It’s still winter and it’s still kind of cold out. This winter hasn’t been too terribly bad, but still a few cold spells that require good bowls of warm foods, just like this slow cooker curry chicken. I enjoy curry and coconut flavours together and like adding in any variety of vegetables to increase that veggie intake. This recipe was made to warm us up and it did just that! With just enough heat from the curry to take the…
