The making of homemade mayonnaise is a truly wonderful thing to behold. Whisk oil into egg yolk, and VOILA, you have a magical sauce that makes so many things delicious! After you make this recipe, you will have very little desire to use store bought mayo again! It takes about five minutes to make, uses common ingredients, and is incredibly creamy and delicious, so let’s get to whisking!
This stuff is like spreading crack on your biscuits. It may become very difficult to stop eating whatever is lucky enough to be lathered in this delicious “butter”! You could just spread butter on your bread, then honey, and sprinkle cinnamon after, but why not just take a second, whip all this together into one delicious spread?
I highly recommend it.

My favourite kind of recipes are those that are easy, yet impressive, and buttermilk biscuits definitely meet that criteria! They take about 30 minutes start to finish, they use common household baking ingredients, and the smell/taste of freshly baked biscuits is amazing! What better way than a video, to show you how easy they are!
I actually shot and edited the majority of this video over a year ago, but for whatever reason I never completely finished it. Fortunately I was making biscuits last night, so I decided it was time to wipe off the cyber-dust it was collecting, finish the video, and finally post the damn thing!

Barbecue season is here! To celebrate, Carlene and I were asked to talk about barbecuing on CBC Radio’s Saskatoon morning show, and to share some barbecue recipes that differed from the usual steak and burgers. Although we already have a fair bit of unique BBQ recipes on the blog, it got me thinking about the other things I have barbecued but never blogged.
I love grilling squash, veggies, fruit, grilled cheese, you name it, I’ll grill it! With all those on my mind, I settled on making something with grilled peaches. That way I could incorporate it into a main dish, as well as a dessert!

Continuing on with grilled peaches, I present the perfect summer dessert! Warm peaches, sweet honey, vanilla ice cream, candied walnuts, and fresh herbs, does it get any better!? I don’t know! But if it does, I can hardly imagine the glory!
The fact that this dessert is not only super simple, but super delicious, makes it a big winner in my books! It’s summer. You want to relax, have some drinks, chat with friends. Not slave away over a dessert all day!

When I first saw this recipe in Bon Appetit, it was so strange, I couldn’t not try it. I showed it to my room-mates, Celeste and Ross, and we were all intrigued enough to test it out.
Of course, we couldn’t just leave the recipe alone, so we added a fried egg, and the results were quite amazing! After eating it, we realized this toast actually made perfect sense! It had a lot of flavours typically used in Asian cuisine, with its use of peanut, sriracha, green onion, cilantro, and lime.

I’m gonna go right ahead and say that I have the best room-mates ever! Nathan is an executive chef, Ross is a cook, and Celeste is a pastry Chef. Needless to say, some pretty awesome culinary happenings have a tendency of going down here!
Thanks to Celeste’s sourdough starter she calls “Fester”, we have a steady supply of fresh sourdough bread being baked up every few days. Last night as Celeste made a couple loaves, she did some experimentation with one of them, and added sesame seeds. Not only did it turn out delicious, but it inspired me to create an “Asian Steak Sandwich”, which was not only beautiful, but delicious!

Barbecue season is upon us, warm weather is here, and summer is on its way! Thanks to a very busy several months being stuck in my basement, editing a TV show, I am now experiencing uncontrollable cravings for warm weather and vitamin D! Fortunately, the weekly deadlines are done, and my schedule is a little more flexible, so I can finally enjoy this wonderful weather!

Ginger beer is something I’ve been wanting to try making for years, and even though I knew it was relatively simple, I just never got around to doing it! My day finally came two weeks ago when I had yet another Ethnic Potluck with the team from Ayden Kitchen & Bar (you may remember the last Ethnic Potluck via my Banh Mi). This time I was in charge for making a dish from Jamaica!
What needs to be said about this one? They have chili cheese fries, chili cheese dogs, chili cheese nachos, so the next logical step (at least for me) is a Chili Cheese Grilled Cheese! Plenty of hearty chili, loads of cheese, sandwiched between two buttery slices of bread.
