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…

French Canadian Tourtiere Meat Pie

French Canadian Tourtiere Meat Pie

Christmas is easily my favourite time of year and for many reasons; mostly because I love cooking and entertaining and Christmas is (for me and my family) all about eating and getting together! One dish that is traditionally served at Christmas is the French Canadian tourtiere meat pie. The tourtiere originated in Quebec and is a meat pie consisting of ground or finely diced pork, beef or veal. I have always had it growing up with pork, but I have seen many other versions,…

Matt & Steve’s Extreme Beans Recipes- Plus a Giveaway!

When I received the opportunity to post using Matt & Steve’s Extreme Beans, I knew it would be an exciting and tasty process. We have used Matt & Steve’s Extreme Beans as a garnish in our caesars for a while now, so I wanted to make a classic caesar for a drink. I posted a spicy basil caesar in the summer, but this will be a classic caesar with Matt & Steve’s B’n Olive Juice and as many Extreme Beans I…

Caramelized Onion Dip and Avocado Dip

Caramelized Onion Dip and Avocado Dip

What makes a good dip? Creaminess? Savoury? Rich? All of those are what I like, but also I need something healthy and low in fat. I am not a fan of store bought dips. There are a couple good ones out there, but for the most part I find homemade dips more flavourful and you can use fat free products to make them a little easier on the waistline. I make a vegetable pack to bring for lunch every day – an…

Summer Salad Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce

Summer Salad Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce

I love salad rolls. Anytime I am in a place that has them on the menu, I just have to have them! I don’t know if it is how fresh they taste, or if it is the sweet and savoury peanut dipping sauce, or everything combined; but they are one of my favourite foods. I will have them as an appetizer, snack or as a meal; so it was only natural that I needed to try and make them myself! …

9 reasons to go camping this summer

9 reasons to go camping this summer

I love to camp. My husband loves to camp. My dog loves to camp. My family and friends love to camp. Basically, every summer, I know I am spending a lot of my weekends sleeping in a tent, cooking outside and using outdoor facilities to do my business.  It’s not for everyone, I know. I have had conversations with people who cannot believe I can spend an entire week in the bush with no running water, electricity or basic services…

Citrus Salad

Citrus Salad

Today is the first day of spring and I am going to kick it off than with a citrus salad! Where I live, it has felt like spring for a few weeks now, so I have been getting excited lately.  I don’t have a favourite season. I actually look forward to each new season about a month before it starts. For me, every season has something to count on.
