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…

Fabulous Fall Foods

Fabulous Fall Foods

Surprise post! I hadn’t planned on posting anything until I am back from my trip to Peru (less than 20 days away now!) but I got inspired by all the other food bloggers out there posting all their fabulous fall foods! Since my last post of lime basil no churn ice cream, I have been very busy. I’ve recreated some recipes to make a couple posts better – such as the garlicky Guinness glazed chicken sandwich (soooo good!) and the…

July Craft Beer Review

July Craft Beer Review

Summer beers are out in full force with hefeweizens and witbiers, IPAs, and now I find new sour beers everywhere. My July Craft Beer Review is shorter than my usual beer reviews. I wrote a huge review of 12 beers in the June Craft Beer Review, so I thought I would give you a little reading break! So with that being said, here is my July Craft Beer Review; a review of four very different beers. All can be enjoyed during any…

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! …

Fajita Spice Blend

Fajita Spice Blend

My husband and I love making our own spice blends and rubs, and lately we have been hooked on our homemade fajita spice blend; using it on fish, chicken, pork and beef! Sometimes…. we don’t even make fajitas with it!! It’s incredibly easy to make in a flash and adds so much flavour that I guarantee you will wonder why you ever purchased the processed blends from the store!  You can make your fajita spice blend, seal it in an air tight container and store…

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…

May Craft Beer Review

May Craft Beer Review

Winter is officially gone and spring has come in big with lots of warm weather meaning lots of great beer drinking weather! With winter behind us, so are the dark, heavy stouts and porters; now I find myself grabbing the lighter lagers, wit beers and IPAs. The May craft beer review is an assortment of great beers to celebrate the outdoor weather. Some are strong with loads of flavour and others are the lighter, easy drinking fare. Either way the variety I…

Red Enchilada Sauce

Red Enchilada Sauce

Cinco de Mayo is coming up and I will have two recipes for you to help celebrate. I cook and eat Mexican all year round because it is one of my favourite cuisines. I even have a huge cookbook called Mexico that I often look for inspiration. To start my mini-Mexico series of two posts, I bring to you homemade red enchilada sauce. It is way better than anything you can buy in a can and is not hard at…
