Easy French Onion Soup

By Friday, January 15, 2016

Cozy soup for winter! I've got to start making more soups. It's been far too long and the weather is finally making feel like they're exactly what I need. On my list is some sort of butternut squash/amaretto combo, seafood chowder, more of my favourite chicken noodle soup and, of course, this French Onion Soup. One of my guilty ...

Butternut Squash Galette with Brown Butter & Crispy Sage

By Wednesday, February 11, 2015

CRISPY SAGE!!! Oh my goodness it’s my new very favourite thing. I know I’ve already talked about this. Do they make sage chips?! If not, they certainly should. Brownie points if you bring them to me. I’m all about the galettes! You might remember this fruity one I made in the summertime and how much I loved ...

Strawberry-Blueberry Galette

By Thursday, September 11, 2014

Behold – the easiest dessert ever. A few weeks ago we were heading to our friends’ cottage and I offered to bring dessert. Shortly thereafter I remembered I am not a dessert person and had no idea what to make. I wanted to bring something fresh and light, like a fruit salad, but that seemed boring. So ...

Butternut Squash & Goat Cheese Risotto

By Friday, March 28, 2014

I am just loooving this food combo right now.   Obviously I am on a goat cheese kick, but pairing it with butternut squash is heavenly. We’ve made this recipe twice in just a couple weeks and seriously cannot get enough. Oddly enough, I’ve only made risotto a few times before this. And when I said “I”, I ...

Roasted Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Alfredo

By Friday, February 28, 2014

This is the kind of food I make when My Other Half is out of town. I'm serious! I've already mentioned that he's on a serious health kick. Pasta, unfortunately for this noodle-lover, is therefore out of the question. But when Roomie (yes, Roomie!) came for supper recently, I seized the opportunity and made something NOT ...

Hot French Onion Cheese Dip

By Wednesday, December 11, 2013

I’m the dip queen. Honestly, my favourite thing to make is a cheese dip. Followed closely by soups. And noodles. And anything spicy. But seriously, cheese dips win. I’m going to have to make an entire section on my recipe page for dips. There are just too many. And they’re some of my most popular recipes, so ...

Spinach, Sausage & Caramelized Onion Quiche

By Wednesday, November 27, 2013

A few weekends ago I made my first quiche!!! This is another classic thing I’d surprisingly never made before. The list gets longer and longer lately… recently I made my first chili, lasagna, manicotti, pumpkin pie... and now quiche! Oddly enough, I grew up eating quiche. After church on Sundays we had one of two things – ...

Salted Butter Breakups

By Friday, February 22, 2013

I’m sharing an unusual and interesting recipe today. It’s a traditional French cookie called “broyé”. I found the recipe on the food blog Lottie & Doof. It’s apparently originally from Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table. I had never heard about Dorie until now, but apparently she’s quite famous. According to her: This cookie is a tradition ...

Brie and Pear Pastries

By Friday, August 12, 2011

Where has the summer gone? I feel like it just started and in fact, it’s almost over. It’s probably because we’ve been keeping so busy. There just aren’t enough hours in a day sometimes! This past week has been especially crazy. We were away for a beautiful wedding last weekend and this week My Other ...

Slow Cooker Shrimp Jambalaya

By Friday, October 1, 2010

Another slow cooker recipe... before too long, I’ll have made every dish in my Crock Pot cookbook! This is similar to the Peachy Sweet and Sour Shrimp dish I made some time ago. Minus the peaches and nuts, they look very similar. Evidently, though, they taste completely different. I love meals that require little attentiveness, mostly because ...
