Summer in Peru: A Pisco Cocktail

Summer in Peru: A Pisco Cocktail

When we went to Peru in November of 2016 we fell in love with Pisco. Pisco sours to be specific, but I wanted to find a way to make another drink other than Pisco sours, and that’s where this Summer in Peru cocktail comes in! If you haven’t heard of Pisco before, it’s a fortified wine that is 40% alcohol, made in Peru or Chile. There’s a little debate between the two countries of who founded Pisco first. Peru says…

IPA Simple Syrup Grapefruit Cocktail

IPA Simple Syrup Grapefruit Cocktail

I really like craft beer, in case you didn’t know that about me already! My favourite characteristic of craft beer is that the ingredients are usually hand selected, specifically picked to create a certain flavour characteristic. This end goal flavour characteristic is what brings me back to trying new craft beers all the time. One ingredient in beer is hops. Hops will give beer that bitter taste but also can add a level of citrus, floral, herbal or grassy type…

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…

Rhubarb Hibiscus Gin and Tonic

Rhubarb Hibiscus Gin and Tonic

Instead of an August Craft Beer review I am sticking with the Rhubarb theme and using the Rhubarb Shrub I made at the beginning of the month to create this Rhubarb Hibiscus Gin and Tonic. I originally was going to review as many rhubarb beers that there were out there… and found only one… the Jackline Rhubarb Grisette by Lighthouse Brewing and I already made mention if it in my Alberta Rhubarb Cake post last spring! So a cocktail is…

Rhubarb Shrub

Rhubarb Shrub

It’s rhubarb month! Okay, it’s not actually, but it is for Chews and Brews. Every post for the month of August will feature the amazing vegetable (yeah, that’s right, it’s a veggie!) rhubarb! I am kicking off the series with a rhubarb shrub, but before we go into those details, let’s discuss rhubarb first.  Rhubarb comes in a stalk similar looking to celery, but is very sour and must be sweetened. The leaves are actually poisonous and should not be…

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Kiwi Honey Sauce

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Kiwi Honey Sauce

When I was a kid I would get kiwis in my lunch to take to school. My mom would cut them in half for me, pack me a spoon and then when it was lunch time I would scoop out all of the kiwi goodness. I’ve always been familiar with the cut and scoop method of eating a kiwi, but when I was offered the opportunity to partner with Zespri Kiwifruit using the SunGold Kiwi, I was excited to incorporate this awesome…

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! …
