Tomorrow (or I guess today once this post is published), I will be making my way to New York for the first time, where I will most certainly be enjoying a slice of pizza or two! In the spirit of New York and pizza, I felt this recipe that has been hanging out in my blog archives for quite some time needed to be shared!
This awesome pizza uses Jim Lahey’s amazing “no-knead” pizza dough, making it ridiculously easy to make! You basically just put everything in a bowl the night before, and voila, the next day it has become an amazing pizza dough! Now that’s my kind of recipe! Of course, I had to add a little bit extra to it, because following a recipe to the tee is never as much fun!

My family has always been big on leftovers, and as a result I embrace the ability to re-purpose yesterdays meal into something new and delicious! More often than not, it’s something simple like a sandwich or quesadilla, but depending on what you’re left with you can make some pretty awesome meals! In this case, after a work related function, my mom was left with a bunch of roast beef and potatoes, which became this delicious twice baked potato!
Scouring my fridge for complementary ingredients, I found blue cheese and mushrooms, which goes great with both roast beef and potatoes! Combine all of those things together and you have a great side dish or appetizer for your dinner!

Thanks to my dad’s rigorous tournament fishing schedule every summer, my family did a LOT of camping, going nearly every weekend! As such, I have many fond memories growing up that revolve around our camping expeditions. Singing “Down by the Bay” as many times as possible to annoy Carlene, making every funny face I could think of while driving to annoy Carlene, “accidentally” crossing over “The Line” of the backseat to annoy Carlene… Okay so you get it, I spent a lot of time trying to annoy my sister!

The essence of camping is all about forgetting those modern day conveniences, “roughing it”, and getting back to the basics! Of course, this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious dessert! Through the miracle that is aluminum foil, we open up a whole world of delicious campfire delicacies, one of those being Apple Crisp!

This potato was delicious. My only beef, is every time I think of the name I can’t help but think of David Hasselhoff. What is a Hasselback anyways? Could it be David Hasselhoff’s back? I’ve suddenly lost my appetite…

I have some exciting news to announce! After making a promotional video for National Grilled Cheese Month (watch it if you haven’t!), I was contacted by Tablespoon.com (a website under the General Mills brand). They wanted to know if I had made the video (I did!), as they were interested in a video partnership to produce similar content for their website! After emailing back and forth, we decided a great topic for the first video/blog post would be “How to Roll a Spring Roll”.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I had become intrigued by the idea of “One Pot Pasta” after watching an episode of Bon Appetempt, so here it is! I tossed this recipe together with what I had on hand, hoped for the best and was rewarded with a delicious dinner! I’m not a fan of heavily sauced pasta dishes, especially now that we finally have some nice weather in Saskatoon, so this hit the spot perfectly! A light, fresh pasta dish that doesn’t leave you feeling like you just ate a brick!

Anybody else out there enjoy the awkward and hilarious online cooking show made by food blog Bon Appetempt? About two months ago, I was going on a 3AM Vimeo food video binge when I came across Bon Appetempt’s “30-Minute Meal?” video. Shortly after discovering Bon Appetempt, I began watching their videos and not so shortly after, I had finished all of them. They are awesome. Go see for yourself!

Today I found myself with an abundance of hot dogs in my fridge and no hot dog buns to be found. Now some people may just give up right there. Not me.
I was determined to eat two hot dogs for lunch.
I could have settled on eating them bunless, or on a slice of bread, but that just wasn’t doing it for me. Then I saw mini tortillas in my freezer, and I knew what I had to do…

Here is a recipe I created the same day I made the delicious Smoked Salmon Bagel Grilled Cheese. Given that I wanted to keep things grilled cheese focused during April, I have kept from posting it until now! Although for anybody following me on Instagram, you might remember seeing it!
As I have previously mentioned, I’m not crazy about smoked salmon, often finding it far too pungent, but it’s a whole different story here! Well balanced with a number of other ingredients, namely fresh dill, capers and sour cream, the smoked salmon enters into a beautiful union of flavours!
