Citrus Spring Recipe Round-up!

I posted a round-up of everything I have for rhubarb right on the first day of Spring and it was such a hit, I decided to continue on with this Spring theme and share everything citrus! These citrus Spring recipes are not just from Chews and Brews, but also from amazing food bloggers that I network with on social media all the time. I highly recommend you click on their blog links and check out some of their amazing work! Let’s…

Guacamole ~ Quick and Easy!

Guacamole ~ Quick and Easy!

Guacamole is crazy easy to make; I make it all the time in minutes and it tastes amazing with chips, on a burger, or stuffed in chicken. Usually I make guacamole just for chip dipping, but this batch is for my guacamole stuffed chicken! You only need five ingredients to make a tasty guacamole, and it is ready literally in minutes. But if you make it and let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours (if you can…

Grilled Ham and Cheese Bites

Grilled Ham and Cheese Bites

A lot of the time my inspiration to create a recipe comes from looking at leftovers in the fridge; much like these grilled ham and cheese bites. I had half a tub of cream cheese, half a package of prosciutto ham and half a baguette to use up. Yes, these grilled ham and cheese bites are a bit different than your standard grilled cheese sandwich! They are a little more on the creamy side from the cream cheese and salty from the prosciutto;…

Christmas Dinner Ideas

Christmas Dinner Ideas

I’ve hosted Christmas dinner a few times now and love it every time! But when I tell people I am hosting, I hear groans and “Oh sorry to hear that!”, like I’ve caught some incurable plague or something. It turns out, not everyone loves entertaining and cooking, and some actually find it frightening to be responsible for cooking Christmas dinner! If you are reading this and nodding your head yes, then keep reading! This post is packed full of ideas…

Fabulous Fall Foods

Fabulous Fall Foods

Surprise post! I hadn’t planned on posting anything until I am back from my trip to Peru (less than 20 days away now!) but I got inspired by all the other food bloggers out there posting all their fabulous fall foods! Since my last post of lime basil no churn ice cream, I have been very busy. I’ve recreated some recipes to make a couple posts better – such as the garlicky Guinness glazed chicken sandwich (soooo good!) and the…

Rhubarb Fig Ginger Marmalade

Rhubarb Fig Ginger Marmalade

Not everything you make with rhubarb has to be sweet, such as in a rhubarb barbecue sauce like this. This rhubarb fig ginger marmalade I have created is sweet, but not the dessert type of sweet. It goes great on grilled pork or chicken, but I like it best with goat cheese on a crostini. It’s very simple to make and you can preserve it in mason jars to keep it on your shelf for a long time. 

Celebrating Canada Day

Celebrating Canada Day

It’s Canada Day tomorrow and I am celebrating in British Columbia, camping in the bush on a lake; eating and drinking lots, canoeing and fishing and just enjoying my Canadian life. When I thought about writing this post for Canada Day I tried to think about what being Canadian means to me.  As a food blogger, obviously this post will be heavy on the food and I am rounding up some of my very own blog posts, mostly Canadian recipes of course! …

Campfire Cooking: Pull-Apart Pizza Bread and Baked Avocados

Campfire Cooking: Pull-Apart Pizza Bread and Baked Avocados

It’s May long weekend here in Canada and I am sitting in my tent trailer camping as I write this. Not my usual camping, I have to admit. I am in a site that has power, water and sewer. None of these services I need. We bring our own power and water and the forest provides us with a latrine or we build a latrine. But it’s May long and we went out without a reservation, so the only site…
