Basic, Delicious Hamburgers

By Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Burgers! I love burgers, but it's funny because we haven't been making a lot of burgers this year. We've been taking full advantage of the grilling season, just with a lot of sausages. I love me some sausages, but they cannot replace BURGERS. Nothing can I've blogged about burgers a few times on the blog. My all-time ...

BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad

By Wednesday, February 12, 2014

There's a LOT going on in this wicked salad. Flavours galore. I’ve added this to my ever-growing list of delicious quinoa salads, including my Go-To Quinoa Salad and my Chipotle Roasted Vegetable Quinoa Salad. Actually, for a complete list of all my quinoa recipes, click here. I made this for lunch for my parents ...

Maple Mustard BBQ Salmon

By Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Ohhh yum. I love salmon! I never used to, though, which is kind of weird. I went through a whole "I don't eat seafood" phase as a teenager. So strange, since it's now one of my favourite proteins. I really really love maple salmon. Mouth-wateringly delicious. Salmon is such an easy supper... it tastes good no matter ...

Spicy Steak Kabobs

By Tuesday, October 16, 2012

It’s sad but true – barbeque season is coming to an end. Many may have already put their barbeques away for the colder months, but I’m inspired by a guy at my work who barbeques all year long. That’s right – even in snow storms! While that’s definitely not for me, I still think we can make ...

Chipotle Steak Salad

By Tuesday, September 18, 2012

If you haven’t already noticed… I love chipotle. One of my very favourite things are chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. I encountered them when I first made my Mexican Meatloaf. Since then, I’ve been hooked. I stock up on them regularly. I love the flavour – spicy and smokey, and deliciously Mexican. I also love steak. So this ...

Portobello Burgers with Basil & Goat Cheese

By Saturday, August 25, 2012

I know, I know. Lots of people don't like mushrooms. That's one of the reasons I still haven't made these goat cheese-stuffed mushroom caps yet. I pinned them back in November but every time I go to make them, someone says "eww, mushrooms". So I don't. Would someone who likes mushrooms PLEASE come to my house for ...

Cheese-Stuffed Turkey Sliders and Jalapeño Bean Cakes

By Wednesday, July 4, 2012

Mmmmm, barbeque season. Just the smell of the barbeque heating up is enough to make me drool. In the summertime, we cook practically every meal on the barbeque – burgers, sausages, hot dogs (if My Other Half lets me), steaks, pork chops… anything. A few weekends ago, I decided to try my hand at sliders – ground ...

Southwest Roast Potato Salad

By Saturday, June 16, 2012

This post was updated with new photography in October 2014! Don't you just love it when a recipe surprises you... in a good way? There's no better feeling - for me, anyway - than trying a new recipe and having it turn out just right. Especially when it's off-the-cuff, impromptu and last-minute. That's exactly how I found ...

Grilled Chicken & Charred Corn Salad

By Friday, June 24, 2011

The Canadian Living obsession continues… but I sometimes wonder why I have pretty much given up all other cookbooks and recipe resources since getting my Canadian Living subscription. Grilled Chicken and Charred Corn Salad I guess I can offer a couple reasons. The first would be that the magazine comes every month, so it’s a novelty ...

Savoury Summer Suppers

By Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Mushroom Cheeseburger and a yummy salad We’ve been on a bit of a cooking rampage at our house. This past week, I made a whole slew of recipes. We have been eating like kings! It’s always more fun to make recipes than to take the easy way out and throw in a pizza or something. ...

Breaking news: The best Jalapeño Cheese-Stuffed Hamburgers ever!

By Friday, June 3, 2011

OK, so yes, I’m an easily excitable person, but I seriously only say “breaking news” when I find a recipe that’s truly newsworthy. These aren’t just the best jalapeno and cheese-stuffed hamburgers ever, but are quite possibly the best homemade burgers ever... period. Maybe that’s because I’m addicted to both cheese and hot stuff? You would think ...
