Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos

Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos

Cauliflower is kind of a big deal. It can be found on almost any menu these days: fried, roasted, in salads and soups, or as an alternative to carbohydrates as in cauliflower rice. I am not going to lie; I am totally the type of person that jumps on food-trend bandwagons and hangs onto them with all my might. Another trend that started a long time ago is “Meatless Monday’s” and we like to incorporate meatless meals on Monday’s as…

Smoky Cheese Burger and the Canadian Food Championships

Smoky Cheese Burger and the Canadian Food Championships

If you know me or have been following along, you know that I won TGP’s search for Canada’s Best Burger back in March; and with that win, I received a spot in the Canadian Food Championships, Burger Category, in July in Edmonton! I chose my husband as my assistant (truthfully it was the other way around…), and I’m about to share with you the details of the amazing opportunity as well as share the burger we created – the smoky…

Beer Can Chicken

Beer Can Chicken

Have you ever had beer can chicken? If you haven’t, then you must. It’s seriously such an easy way to perfectly cook a whole chicken on the barbecue. Juicy inside and crispy outside, meanwhile full of flavours! Making your beer can chicken does require a few easy steps that will all be worth it in the end. First, obviously, is picking that beer. We’ve done beer can chicken with a cheap lager mostly, but this time I am using Big…

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

We grill and cook outdoors a lot in the summer. When I made this recipe, it was stinking hot out and there was no way any of this was happening inside my hot house. The squash was done on the grill and chutney done on the Coleman stove; this whole grilled acorn squash with tomato curry chutney was done completely outdoors! You don’t have to do it that way, but there is something tasty about cooking outside. Bring this recipe camping…

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…

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…
