Breakfast Burger Pie {Recipe}

In my never-ending quest to find foods that agree with my picky, pre-pot-of-coffee, morning palate, I have come up with what I and a goodly lot of others consider another winner for the breakfast-is-hard category of my foodie repertoire. It’s all of the best bits of a breakfast burger but, hanks to the magic of…

Potato-Leek Soup {Recipe}

I’m surprised to find that I’ve never shared this recipe before as potato-leek soup, or potage parmentier, is one of my all-time favourites. I can recall being introduced to the stuff-in-the-bag as a child and was hooked, but I’ve spent a lifetime cobbling together a recipe that is tremendously flavourful, goes together ever-so quickly (NO…

Okonomiyaki – Peterborough Style {Recipe}

You can absolutely get better, and more true-to-the-dish recipes for okonomiyaki around the internet. The one I recommend the most is here because none of the author’s recipes have ever steered me wrong. This recipe, however, caters to my little city and its sometimes limited or non-existent supply of the items needed to make the…

Vegan Bouillon Powder {Recipe}

I know it’s difficult to believe that someone with a freezer so well-stocked with a variety of homemade bouillon might find herself in a pinch when taking on a vegan recipe that she had planned for all week, but alas and alack, that is precisely the kind of pickle this girl found herself today. Not…

Grilled Octopus

Peterborough is a weird place when it comes to food. I can find all kinds of good stuff within my regular hunting grounds that comprise a mere two city blocks and that is amazing, but sometimes I come up against a raging black hole for certain ingredients, like asafoetida…and octopus. A few years ago, I…

Tahini-Wasabi Dressing

Last week, I finally got ’round to making this recipe for lemongrass-aubergine neatballs that I had been sitting on forever. Guys, these things are really good; super-tasty and they hold together well and are filling af and super-tasty. I regret not doubling or tripling the recipe and freezing some because it’s a bit labour-intensive, so…

Jucy Lucy Strawberry Moose-y Burgers

This post got long and fraught with feelings about meat. Click here to jump to the recipe, if you like, but you’ll be missing out on all of my cleverness and feelings and hip references to culturally relevant stuff. Suit yourself, though. Whatevs. A few months ago, I came down with a mad hankerin’ for…

Rhubarb-Chai Pudding Cake

Like the Dutch baby from a couple of weeks ago, I hadn’t thought about pudding cake (or half hour pudding, as it’s known in our fam) in YEARS before being gifted a goodly sized bag of rhubarb from a lovely love the other day. I’m not even sure what brought it to mind, except that…

Shallot and Herbs Savoury Dutch Baby

While Yorkshire pudding is a mainstay in our household, we had not been graced with the presence of its lovely cousin, the Dutch baby, in a very long time. Why? No clue because this crispy, melt-in-your-mouthy bit of joy is not only quick and easy to put together, good in both savoury and sweet form…

Venison Carnitas {Instant Pot Recipe}

Tacos are a real thing here in the tree fort. One of the first meals, possibly the first, I made for Rob when we were just becoming real thing ourselves, was tacos. He may have lured me with (undelivered) promises of Star Trek, but I lured him with tacos. I’ve always said that food is…

Tourti̬re au Chevreuil РVenison Pie

I should probably put a disclaimer on my social medias for Yuletide as it tends to bring out my not-so-inner-hunter’s-daughter and I found myself frequently faced with the results of many slaughters, like so: I’m sure my vegan and more animal-sensitive friends might be a little disturbed by images like those. Next year. Anyway, not-so-inner-hunter’s-daughter…
