Jerk Chicken Broccoli Spring Rolls

This is what you do when you have too much broccoli on hand and you’re tired of adding it to veggie platters or making soup from it. For those who haven’t tried roasted broccoli yet, you’re in for a treat. Spice it however you wish or just season simply with salt and cracked black pepper. …

Crispy Potato Galette

Further to my 30-second video on the subject, here’s the “results show” for my roasted potato galette. I used russet potatoes to make this side dish, which was fine. But because of the starch content in them they took forever to roast to a crispy, golden brown. I do love this recipe and will make …

Cobb Salad, My Way

This is not your mom’s Cobb salad. What you do have, however, is a 2-for-1 recipe post that’ll do perfectly well for dinner tonight. It’s a complete meal, loaded with veggies, the protein by way of eggs and cheese. Do side it with a glass of your mom’s favourite chilled Chardonnay. Happy Friday, my darlings. …

Cauliflower “Rice” Salad

I was inspired by Epicurious’s post on how to make cauliflower “rice.” After several cooking methods, they came to the conclusion that microwaving cauliflower was the best way to achieve a generic tasting white rice alternative. And if I were to use it as a bed for a flavourful curry or a saucy cacciatore, I …

Potato Topped Chicken Pot Pie

In my neck of the woods, belly warming, cool weather suppers are still the norm. And what better way to nurture that need than with a good, old-fashioned pot pie. This one made with every last bit and bob of vegetables I had on hand. That’s the beauty of a pot pie. You can add …

Roasted Reds with Bacon

Don’ fret that precooked bacon bits subjected to 40 minutes of 380°F will result in burnt offerings. They won’t. I promise. And bacon adds so much depth of flavour that you’ll wonder how you’ve never thought to add this ingredient to your roasted potato recipes before now. This is a terrific side dish that should …

Gluten-Free Cauliflower Flatbread

Because I’m not a baker, trying my hand at making gluten-free breads and rolls has been an absolute disaster. I don’t understand the alchemy of baking. And I suck at math. I just don’t have the patience to keep doing the same recipe over and over in hope of miraculously getting it right. The recipe …

Gluten-Free Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

These crispy on the outside, buttery in the middle seasoned potatoes are attributed to the back of house whimsy at Stockholm’s Hasselbacken restaurant. Traditionally made with jacketed russet potatoes, I’ve switched them out for peeled sweet potatoes which are more nutrient rich and add a splash of colour to your weeknight side dish. To get …

Tarte Flambée My Way

Historically speaking, tarte flambée – a German-influenced savoury pizza, of sorts – is created with homemade French puff pastry and crème fraîche as its base with slivered white onion and pork belly lardon scattered over top. The pie is baked for mere minutes in a 700°F wood-fired oven and served hot with, as recommended, an …

UNscalloped Potatoes

Who doesn’t love creamy, buttery scalloped potatoes. This time of year, however, we’ve got to pick our battles when it comes to healthy eating choices. Especially when faced with the avalanche of holiday baking and chocolates I see making their way into the office. So here’s my recipe (if one can call it that) for …

Honeynut “Caviar”

Honeynut squash is a baby butternut squash that fits in the palm of your hand and is about 10 times sweeter than its fully grown parent. It was developed by Cornell University plant breeder Michael Mazourek in collaboration with renowned chef Dan Barber. And if it’s good enough for a multiple James Beard awards winner …

Honeynut Hummus… a MUST-MAKE Recipe

While you can certainly sub roasted butternut squash puree for the honeynut in this recipe, I encourage you to try the newer varieties of squashes coming to farmers’ markets next year. In the meantime, you MUST make this recipe! The honeynut squash gives the hummus a velvety, slightly sweet finish that was raved about by …

Real Easy Jamaican Beef Patties

The dough in this recipe is bulletproof. And if you know how much I detest baking, that’s saying something. It puts me in mind of shortbread cookie dough. The scraps will take repeated gatherings and rollings without compromising the velvety, flaky texture of the finished product. This dough also freezes exceptionally well. As far as …

Black-Eyed Pea Hummus? Why not!

Not a lover of red kidney beans, I used — with great results — pressure cooked dried black-eyed peas to revision my Hoppin’ John rice dish. Which begs the question, what to do with the remaining one cup of dried peas? Hummus, of course! I pressure cooked the peas in three cups of cold water …

Roasted Mushrooms with Lemon-Thyme Crumble

These “stuffer” mushrooms get the double treatment, first getting browned on both sides in a hot ovenproof skillet, then topped with a savoury crumble and roasted in an even hotter oven. The result is succulent, earthy morsels of deliciousness. A real crowd pleaser, to be sure. This recipe is a one-pan starter course that can …

Building the Perfect Sandwich

Whenever I create a new savoury recipe, I look to the balanced flavours of Thai cuisine (salty, sweet, sour and spicy) for inspiration. This EPIC sandwich — made for supper last night — is a perfect case in point. I thinly sliced leftover roasted stuffed pork loin from last Sunday’s dinner with an electric carving …
