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…

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…

Shrimp and Corn Foil Packets

Shrimp and Corn Foil Packets

When it was still corn season I was working hard to use up the huge bag of corn we bought from a “street” vendor and I ended up trying to recreate a southern crawfish boil type of dish. Living in Alberta, we don’t exactly have access to a lot of crawfish, if any, so I used shrimp. You can make these shrimp and corn foil packets anywhere; in the oven, on the barbecue or over the campfire. For this specific recipe…

Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Mango Mint Salsa

Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Mango Mint Salsa

I love mahi-mahi. It is by far my favourite fish to eat. If you don’t really like fish, I suggest giving mahi-mahi a try. I don’t find it very fishy; instead it’s more meaty and has a very mild flavour to it. The best way I love cooking mahi-mahi is grilled and that’s what I am going to show you today, topped with a mango mint salsa. This recipe is so simple making it a perfect weeknight meal, which is my kind…

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…

The 10 Finger Burger

The 10 Finger Burger

What is a 10 finger burger you ask? It’s a burger that is so ridiculously big, you need all 10 fingers to hang onto it while eating. When I decided to stuff my burger with lots of tasty sautéed mushrooms and onions and then gooey cheese; and then add loads of toppings like avocado, fresh tomato slices, pickles and an aioli, this burger quickly became a 10 finger burger! There is something to be said about a burger that is so juicy that…

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…

Turkey Leek Mushroom Skillet

Turkey Leek Mushroom Skillet

Leeks are interesting to me. They are an allium, like the onion and garlic. But they don’t grow in a bulb like the onion or garlic; instead they have a cylinder of leaf sheaths, which is part of the edible portion of the leek. They have a mild onion flavour and are great in soups and stocks. Today I used a leek to make this turkey leek mushroom skillet. I had a carb loaded breakfast and lunch so I was looking…
