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…

How to Make Fantastic Fries from an Acorn Squash

How to Make Fantastic Fries from an Acorn Squash

Making fries or chips from vegetables other than potatoes seems to be somewhat of a trend, and I thought I would jump right on that bandwagon and make acorn squash fries. When I cook with squash, I usually choose butternut squash because I find it sweet and when it roasts it seems to get tastier and sweeter! I have used it in salads and pasta like sausage and butternut squash sauce pasta.  Cooking with acorn squash isn’t foreign to me, but doing anything…

Roasted Garlic Beet Hazelnut Dip

Roasted Garlic Beet Hazelnut Dip

I love vegetables and dip and I love chips and dip; but that dip usually doesn’t fair well with my waist line so I am always looking for new dips to make that are healthy and tasty! Enter roasted garlic beet hazelnut dip! This recipe is inspired by a beet and walnut dip that I stumbled upon in one of my many Pinterest sessions. First, I don’t really like walnuts that much; I find them bitter and dry.  Do you…

Southern Food Cooking – 70 Recipes!

Southern Food Cooking – 70 Recipes!

Tomorrow, January 22nd, is National Southern Food Cooking day and it only seemed proper to pull together a round up of the tastiest southern food cooking there is out there! As a Canadian, living in one of the most Northern major cities of the country, my experience with southern food cooking is limited. However, in August of 2015 my husband and I went to New Orleans, Louisiana where I had my first taste of the south and we fell in love immediately….

How do you shorten a title like basil goat cheese stuffed cherry tomatoes and still provide a small detail of what the post will be about? You can’t. Well I couldn’t. Every part of that title deserves to be there and if you try making these sweet little gems, you will know what I mean. The basil pops through the rich creamy goat cheese and the cherry tomatoes aren’t just a carrying pod for the creamy delight; they also add…

Nuts and Bolts

Nuts and Bolts

I make nuts and bolts every year at this time to give out as gifts and to share with family and friends as a snack when they come over to my house during the holiday season. Oh, and I always have enough for my husband and I to wolf them down while watching Christmas movies. This recipe started from my dad who made them annually for us at Christmastime. They are crunchy and salty and quite honestly, I followed the…
